Strip by: Redgreen

{Jon and Liz are looking into each others' eyes and smiling. They're probably in some romantic mood, but that doesn't matter}
Jon: Liz... Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz!
Jon: Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz...
{Liz is shocked at Jon's obsession with her name}
{Liz, annoyed, turns to leave}
Jon {worried}: Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz?
Liz: Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz

The author writes:

About a decade before this strip edit's publication, way back when Square Root of Minus Garfield had not that many recurring source strips, a contributor going by the pseudonym MoonHitler created two comics featuring Garfield and Jon, in which they thought and spoke the former's name in the first one, and the latter's in the second, respectively. Nearly seven years later, an author named Farhan Malek submitted a strip based on the same one I used to make this one — but my idea never came to me until about a couple of years and a quarter later, and even then, I left this strip abandoned for a month and a half. I wonder why nobody else has ever thought of doing this?

Also, here's a replacement end panel that changes the punchline:

{alternate third panel} Jon {worried}: Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz Liz? Liz: Betty Betty Betty Betty Betty Betty Betty Betty {Liz is probably called Betty now. Either that, or she's sarcastic while saying this}
