Panel three. Is... is Garfield guessing where Jon is? Or does he know Jon so well he can predict his behavior? Or does Garfield possess some second-sight beyond the grasp of humans? Because Liz's confusion indicates to me that Jon is physically out of view. I doubt this would be the reveal of Garfield's supernatural powers, whether it's psychic bonding or the ability to see through walls.
The silent panel two speaks volumes about the eagerness of man to degrade himself to impress women. Liz's panel three expression speaks about the effectiveness of this strategy. It is good to know Jon's previous discomfort with bestiality has abated some.
Panel two also reveals that Liz is either not left handed or ambidextrous. So is it an error that she wears her watch on her right arm? Or a stupid, stupid effort at inconvenient fashion? Or maybe just maybe she's trying to impress the left-handed Jon Arbuckle in some subtle, misguided way? I hope so. In the Garfield world, as in ours, the ladies are as bad at courtship as the men.
