What's your name, mouse? OK, gee. I don't think I have a name. Oh, come on, what do people say when they meet you? My name is Eek!
1 November 1984
We gotta give you a name, mouse. How about Crusher? How about Bruiser? How about Cat killer? How about Squeak? I like it.
2 November 1984
Here, Squeak, let me strap this key to your back. What's this for? I don't remember buying you a toy mouse, Garfield. Got the picture? You're a genius!
3 November 1984
A dimly lit street corner at midnight. This puts me in the mood for some snappy patter. Hey, good-lookin!. What's happening? Who are you? Names aren't important. Some call me a soldier of fortune, some call me a renaissance man. You cancall me "Majo
4 November 1984
Hide! Here comes my owner! Why are we hiding? Jon wants me to eat you and I don't want to. You're so nice! Thanks for thinking of me. I was thinking of me.
5 November 1984
Okay, Squeak, here's the game plan. Every now and then, you show up in front of Jon and dance around until I appear on the scene and chase you away. In return, you get a nice home to live in, and I get to keep my job. This is a strangeworld we live in. Yo
6 November 1984
Here's your cat food, Garfield. A MOUSE! That must be the surprise at the bottom of the box.
7 November 1984
Hey, Squeak, I found a great place for you to live! Jon will never think to look for you in this old log cabin. Nice, huh? Is it in a good school system?
8 November 1984
Thanks for the house, Garfield. A man needs a place to call his own. This is great! Don't mention it, kid. -
9 November 1984
Listen carefully, Squeak. This is a mousetrap. Never, NEVER touch the tab in the center of it. You mean, this little tab here? This boy does not take direction well. Hey! That hurt!
10 November 1984
WAH HA HA HA! What a great sundae! Nothing can spoil my day. SCRATCH SCRATCH OH NO! MONDAY IS COMING!
11 November 1984
GARFIELD! COME HERE! "Garfield" this, "Garfield" tah. I'm sick of my name. HEY, FLEABAG! COME HERE! Then again: "Garfield" does have a certain ring on it.
12 November 1984
OH NO! A FLEA! I'M GETTING YOU A FLEA COLLAR, GARFIELD. Let's not be too hasty here. Look at those distinctive yellow and green markings there. This flea is a member of a rare species of vegetarians.
13 November 1984
Well, there's your new flea collar, Garfield. Wait a minute, there's a disclaimer on this box. "Warning: while this collar will repel fleas..." "It has been known to attract sharks."
14 November 1984
DON'T TAKE THAT FLEA COLLAR OFF, GARFIELD! Who needs it? -
15 November 1984
You have a pretty grim flea problem there, Odie. That's not a very strong flea collar. -
16 November 1984
Did I ever tell you about my crazy uncle Berle? He thought he was a dog. The poor guy was always exhausted. He kept chasing himself up trees.
17 November 1984
Can we talk? I would like to speak to you about how wonderful cats are. Unlike dogs, they always land on their feet. They are more calm than dogs. ROWR! Every movement is a deliberate statement of grace and beauty. And when it comesto coordination, they a
18 November 1984
Doc Boy! How's my favorite little brother? Oh, things are pretty much the same here, wild parties, good times, the usual... Uh, you say you're coming to visit? It's put up or shut up time.
19 November 1984
What am I going to do, Garfield? My brother is coming to visit from the farm. He thinks I live life in the fast lane. "Life in the parking lot" is more like it. I don't know where he got the idea. It was when you told him you werenegotiating mov
20 November 1984
There's my brother now. * DING DONG Welcome to the big city, doc Boy! Let the good times roll! Another soda pop? No, I think I'll have some more of that fun-filled popcorn. I'm going to like Doc Boy.
21 November 1984
I'm so embarrassed. Doc Boy comes all the way from the farm just to find out what a loser I am. The truth always hurts. Hey, where are all those "good times" you promised me? What would you like to do? Let's go to the airport and watchthe airpla
22 November 1984
Oh, by the way, Doc Boy, I've fixed us up on a double date. HEY, GREAT! What's a double date? That's when you and I go on a date together. Gee, it seems like it would be more fun if some girls came along. There's no hope.
23 November 1984
DOC BOY! OUR DATES ARE HERE! EEEEEEK! Can we talk? Can we laugh?
24 November 1984
Z SNORT! BLINK BLINK BLINK Rats! It's 4 A.M. and I'm wide awake. Fortunately, I know what to do. CLICK ARRRRRGH! If I can't sleep, neither will anyone else.
25 November 1984
I wonder who that could be, Doc Boy. DING DONG . Dad! Mom! What are you doing here!? We missed you boys, okay? A little paint, a few curtains, a woman's touch, this could be nice! My dad, the sentimental fool. My mom, the cliche.
26 November 1984
Your visit is such a surprise, mom. When's the last time you and dad went out? We haven't been off the farm since '53. I don't believe that. Good heavens! What's this? That's an indoor toilet, dad. WOO-HA! AIN'T SCIENCE SOMETHIN'? FLUSHNOW I believe it.
27 November 1984
You awake, Jon? click OF COURSE NOT, DAD! IT'S 5 A.M.! WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP? I GOTTA MILK SOMETHING! I'm leaving.
28 November 1984
You forgot this when you left home, Doc Boy. Thanks, mom, I haven't slept a wink without it. Whatcha got there, Doc Boy? NOTHING! NOTHING! IT'S NOTHING! Could it be a shred of your old blankie? Careful what you say about blankies,fella.
29 November 1984
Uh, mom...I wouldn't open that if I were you. EEEK! SOMETHING IN THERE MOVED! I'm sure it was just an optical illusion. GO ahead, tell her how the lunch meat has evolved into an intelligent life form.
