I hate playing hide-and-seek with Odie. I've been in this basket for an hour. - Maybe I shouldn't have found such a good hiding place. - Or maybe I shouldn't have made Odie count to three.

This is Odie-wan-Kanobe. He has the force to help us. He hides it well. - - EEEK! - HELP! HWLP! HELP! - - Garfield, you sissy. I can't believe you're afraid of a little spider. - I need your book. - FWAP - Thank you very much. - EEEK!

You never move from that spot. Ah. But I've considered it. - You're not even a cat. - YOU'RE A SLUG WITH HAIR! Sure, kick me when I'm down!
