Jon: Garfield, you make a lovely fire.
Garfield: I do make a lovely fire.
Jon: Well, I gotta go get ready for my date. You enjoy your lovely fire.
Garfield: I'll enjoy my lovely fire.
Jon: Hey! Why is Odie's bowl covered in blood?
Garfield: He makes a lovely fire.
The author writes:
Garfield has been around for so long, and has eaten so many chemicals, been affected by so many strange events, that surely he's likely to suddenly ... crack?
