Strip by: Lubaf
Jon: Remember when we first met?
Jon: Remember the first thing you said to me?
Liz: It's short for Lizard?
Jon: Okay, the second thing.

If one goes to the archive and looks at Liz's first appearance, the 2012 strip I've fixed here is doubly wrong; not only does it get what she says to Jon wrong, he wasn't even wearing a tie in the 1979 strip. (Technically, her first words are "Who's next please?" (said to woman at the front desk) and "Liz", but I chose to use the first complete sentence she says to Jon.)
Admin note: We received this submission just a few hours after yesterday's comic, which itself arrived on the same day as the original Garfield strip was published. Obviously both contributors were equally inspired to go look up Liz's first words, but with different results. So we decided to publish both.]]
