Spot the Difference with Garfield 10

Strip by: Kavviyenta

Jon: Hello? Debbie, my sweet?
{Garfield steals his steak}
Jon: You fat greedy pig! I oughta shave you bald and put you out in the cold
{Jon realizes he's still holding the receiver}
Jon: Hello?
SFX: Click

Liz: Thank you for the movie, Jon. You're very sweet
Jon: And I'd just like to say...
SFX: HONK! HONK! HONK!
Jon: Garfield! If you don’t stop honking that horn, I'm going to rip it out of the steering column and shove it up your nose!
{Jon realizes Liz was still in front of him}
Jon: Hello?
SFX: Slam!

The author writes:

Only difference is the context. Debbie doesn't know Jon isn't threatening her, while Liz does but doesn't want anyone to know a vet is dating someone who threatened his own cat. Jon just can't get a break.

[I like that Jon seems to have a standard facial expression for this circumstance. -Ed]
