{Garfield approaches his bed}
Garfield: Now to enter my time travel machine.
{Garfield climbs in, pulling his blanket over his head}
Garfield: Z
{suddenly, the bed vanishes...}
{...as we cut to the next day, as Jon is serving Liz and Garfield burgers}
Jon: (plopping an extremely charred burger onto Liz's plate) Here you go! Hot off the grill!
{cut to Liz}
Liz: (visibly disgusted) I wouldn't feed this to a dog.
{cut to a wider shot, showing a shocked Liz, a neutral looking Garfield, a barely visible Odie... and Yesterday!Garfield with his time travel machine}
Present!Garfield: I would.
Odie: (munch munch munch)
Yesterday!Garfield: And just like that, it's tomorrow!

The author writes:

Granted, I could've made Yesterday!Garfield look a little less compressed. But my justification for the compression is due to possible time distortion on Yesterday!Garfield's part thanks to there being two Garfields within the same space.

Just pray that Present!Garfield doesn't turn around lest we get some Project Almanac nonsense with (SPOILERS) Garfield erasing himself from the timeline by seeing his past self.

Trust me, we don't want another Project Almanac on our hands. One is enough, and that is already bad.
