Garfield

Should I be mean or lazy today?... Or, maybe a happy medium... I'll just lie here and bite anyone who trips over me.

Garfield

Wanna spice up those dull meals? Just dumb your food on the table... and make it dance! WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! You need help, Garfield.

15 September 1989

Garfield

I hate eating in bed. There must be some deep psychological reason for that... Or maybe it's because I'm lying on my fork.

22 September 1989
 
 
   
Garfield

Sometimes it's good to get up early and do chores. AARRRGH! Like moving the litter box to the side of Jon's bed.

23 September 1989
 
 
   
Garfield

My mind says "get up and get active," then my body begins to laugh. Here, boy! There's something very special about Odie... CRASH! That wasn't it. CRASH! Now THAT was special.

Garfield

My, my, what's gotten into you this morning? It's what's NOT gotten into me. I'm on a diet, you freak. I thought fat people were supposed to be jolly. They're ecstatic they're not on diets. Come on...cheer up. Oh, very well.

25 September 1989

A carrot stick, all I get on my diet is this stupid carrot stick. Jon says diets are supposedto be pleasurable... Unless this thing starts tap dancing, I'm gonna be real disappointed.

26 September 1989
 
 
   
Garfield

Remember, when preparing chicken... "Waste not, want not" These beaks make lovely wind chimes. This show's great for the diet.

Garfield

How does the diet go, Garfield? Uh, okay. I'm really proud of you. Yeah, thanks. Uh, what are you doing in there? Licking the oven grate.
