Garfield: Brrr, there's a chill in here this morning
Crow: All right, who set the thermostat for 32?
Garfield: What an eerie sensation...
Mike: A Garfield comic that's not making you laugh? No, that's normal.
Garfield: This doesn't feel like my home
Tom: That's because it's my home! EEK!
Crow: Maybe I should put some clothes on...
Garfield: Jon? Odie?
Crow: Lym- oh, wait.
Tom: Puma?
Garfield: Anybody home?
Mike: This new Twin Peaks is kinda dull.
Crow: I never thought I'd want a dancing midget, but here we are.
Garfield: I'm alone
Narrator: You have no idea how alone you are, Garfield
Tom: But you're never alone with a narrator, Garfield!
Mike: Whoa, spooky narrator out of nowhere.
Garfield: {in a strangely drawn panel} Steady, Garfield, there must be a good reason why the house is empty
Tom: I'm huge!
Crow: And a good reason why it's raining indoors...
Garfield: {at window} Jon must be at the grocery
Mike: He's making shadow puppets!
Tom: All Jon's activities must be linked to my food intake!
{Abandoned house with a "For Sale" sign}
Mike: Aren't the Indiana suburbs nice this time of year?
Crow: So Muncie is just a suburban version of Detroit?
Garfield: My home has been abandoned.
Tom: There's even graffiti from the Jim Davis gang!
Garfield: No one has lived here for years!
Mike: Except the occasional squatter...
Garfield: What's that?
Tom: Pussycat, whooah-woah-whoooah!
{Garfield runs through a door, looks surprised}
Crow: Funky Winkerbean!? Is that you? So that's why things haven't been funny around here lately!
Garfield: Jon! Odie! You're home!
Hallucination!Jon: Hello, Garfield, have some food
Crow: Ew! No thanks Odie's already licking it!
{Hallucination!Jon and food disappears}
Crow: Here's a new diet for you, fatso!
Tom: Existence failure has occurred. Please restart the universe.
Narrator: Locked fast within a time when he no longer exists, Garfield grapples with his greatest fear... loneliness.
Crow: {before Narrator says "loneliness"} It's one of the Kung-Fu Creatures on a Rampage... 2!
{Narrator blathers on over a extreme closeup of Garfield's eye}
All: Eww! Gah! Aaaah!
Narrator: Denial...
Garfield: I don't want to be alone!
Tom: Oh no! He's conducting a denial of service attack!
{Jon and Odie appear}
Jon: Want some breakfast, Garfield?
Mike: Why does he get his wish, but not me? Ripoff!
{Garfield hugs Jon, as the Narrator starts blathering on and on}
Tom: That's great and all, but what does that have to do with anything?
Crow: Astronaut Jon Arbuckle, rescued alive, well, and of normal size some eight thousand miles away.
