Jon: I think I made an impression on her
Jon: I tried to impress my date with humor tonight
Garfield: Uh-oh
Jon: Then I noticed I was wearing my underwear on the outside of my pants
Garfield: Sick
Jon {scratched up and disheveled}: My, don't you look lovely this evening
Jon: What a weird date. I took out this lady who was raised by wolves
{Jon is grinning and dancing with a broom for... reasons...}
Garfield: You gonna date for a while, or marry and start a family right away?
{Jon is playing in the mud with Garfield and Odie}
Jon: Gee, that was fun, boys, but I gotta get ready for my date at seven
{Jon suddenly notices his date}
Jon: Or was that six?
Jon: Actually, my last date tried to poison me
Jon: I'm taking my bongos!

Garfield: I'll alert the media
Jon: I'm having trouble getting a date

Garfield: He's dating a clown!
Jon: That was a terrible date

Jon's Date 2: I ran screaming from the room
Garfield: You'll have to be more specific
Jon {disheveled}: Why did you do that?!
Garfield: Because your date is at the door
Jon: My date said she hates me more than almost anything
Answering Machine: *Beep*... Jon, this is Cindy. I've changed my name. You'll never find me! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Jon {talking to his date on the phone}: You'll be carrying a skull?
Garfield: Stay in well-lit areas
Answering Machine: *Beep*... Jon?... Marsha... I can't date you because I'm allergic to boring
Jon: Mom set me up on a blind date with a girl from back on the farm
Answering Machine: *Beep*... Jon, this is Nancy. Don't come over. You'll never get over the moat
Euphemia: Do you find my name amusing?
Jon {trying (not very) hard not to laugh}: Nope!... Just a little leg cramp...
Answering Machine: *Beep*... Jon, this is Mary... I bought a vicious dog trained to attack at the scent of bad cologne
Jon: No, I don't mind her mime troupe chaperoning us...
Garfield: Ain't a flag big enough OR red enough
Answering Machine: *Beep*... Jon, this is Sandy. Call one more time and I'll break your dialing finger
Jon: Do you know what a really wet, really mad sheep dog looks like?

Jon: Bad date, Garfield
Jon: That was Debbie calling to cancel our date
Jon: She calls me once a week to tell me she'll never go out with me
Jon: Please, please, please, please, please, please go out with me
Jon: And I'm about as desperate as a monkey in a banana famine
Jon: My date tried to have me arrested for being boring
Jon: Bad date, Garfield
Jon: A blind date at a monster truck rally, what was I thinking?
Jon {wearing nothing but a bow tie}: What an embarrassing date
Garfield: Imagine that
Jon {shirtless}: The pager went off
Armando: Um... table for two?
Liz: And a bag for my head
Jon: I don't think my date enjoyed the evening
Jon's Date 3 {off-panel}: EEEYAAAAAAAAHHH!
