Jon's progress: mild anger -> rougishness -> tired. So tired. It is, however, awesome that Jon is admitting to himself (and his cat) that he is trying to trick a woman into going out with him.
Points to Paw-nder:
-This is the first time we've "heard" Ellen's voice through the reciever. I hope you are as excited as I am.
-Jon's shirt has that new automatic-rumpling feature to make you look extra-pathetic at a moment's notice.
-I hope Garfield's last thought is in an Austrian accent.
-Three people are talking in the third panel, making it as visually crowded as any Garfield panel in years.
