Garfield[edit]

  • See, I get my exercise doing my job. Just one quick CANNONBALL! [He leaps onto Jon's stomach.]
  • [to Jon, about adopting Odie] You had me, a chick magnet. And now you've got a tick magnet!
  • [After he switched Jon's hash with his food and Jon eats Garfield's food] Actually, it's liver-flavored!
  • I was the one! It was all about me! Not about some stupid, sniveling, smelly, high-maintenance, "Disco Dog"!
  • [first lines] I hate Mondays.
  • [sees Odie] Another day ruined.
  • [to Odie when he's being kidnapped] Odie, you're so dumb, you don't even know you're in trouble.
  • This rescue work is exhausting. When do heroes get to eat?
  • [repeated line] Oh, my poor nose!
  • [to the every dog and cat] Canines, felines, "vermines", it's... showtime!
  • Now is the time for a plate of courage!
  • [to Jon while he was take Odie home] Whoa! You went in there to get a date and came out with a dog?! Well, that's bad even for you!
  • Love me, feed me, never leave me.
  • [to Jon make Odie mad] I was provoked, pushed, prodded, driven mad. You can't kick me out of my own house! Like I'm some kind of animal?! Oh! Come on, Jon! Jon!
  • Let's step it up a little bit! Something like this!
  • [Garfield is about to fall approximately 10 stories] You know, I think I had a nightmare about this once...
  • Once again, my life has been saved... by the miracle... of lasagna.
  • That's his last name, Schnitzel?
  • Sure Jon, I'll eat all your lasagna for you.
  • And that's the sign that the tank is full.
  • [surrounded by the street rats] Why am I being surrounded here?! Some of my best friends are vermin.
  • Ladies and gentlemen, Garfield, has left the cul-de-sac!
  • Hey, nobody gets to mistreat my dog like that except ME!
  • [dancing] I feel good!
  • [having just used a Rube Goldberg machine to drink some milk] (belches) Got milk?

Jon Arbuckle[edit]

  • [voice over] Hi, it's Jon. I was calling to see if Odie's been over there, and... I can't find him around. My name's Jon Arbuckle, and... I can't find my dog. I look all around the neighborhood, and... I can't seem to find him. I saw him last night, but I didn't see him this morning, and... If you see him, give me a call, please. Hi, it's Jon. I was calling to see if you've seen Odie. Um, I think he's run away. I was giving him a bath last night, and forgot to put his collar back on. 'Cause, you know, Garfield hates his collar. [back at home and on the phone] He's about 15 pounds, he's brownish-yellow, with brown floppy ears.
  • [to Garfield, tried to catch a mouse] What good is a cat, that can't chase a mouse?
  • [to Liz Wilson] Garfield's gone! He's run away, too! First Odie, and now Garfield. Liz, I am the worst pet owner on the planet!
  • Let's go for a ride to some place you love, that always leaves you feeling pampered and refreshed.
  • [sees a mouse in his house] Mouse!
  • Liz, I've wanted to ask you the same thing for a very long time.
  • [sees Garfield eats Louis in his mouth] Oh, good boy! See, I knew you could do it if you put your mind to it.
  • [confronts Happy Chapman for stealing his pets] This is for stealing my dog and my cat.
  • [sees Garfield's footprints] Garfield's been here!
  • [thinking that Garfield is beef] What am I going to do with you?
  • Happy Chapman took Odie? He's got Garfield, too?
  • [on the phone] No, Odie's not a hound dog. Yes, I'm sure. No, I don't want another dog. Thanks, anyway. Garfield, lunchtime! I made your favorite lasagna! [no responded]
  • Never. You guys are my best friends.
  • Sunday's great, Sunday's good, Sunday.

Louis[edit]

Louis, a chubby mouse who befriends with Garfield.
  • Garfield!
  • [looking up at Happy Chapman's building] The Telegraph Tower, in all it's splendor.
  • [to the street rats] Sorry, rat pack! This cat's with me. You all gotta roll.
  • I don't do the vertical thing.
  • Seems like you got yourself in a jam, huh?
  • Just wait for the walk signal!
  • There are dangers everywhere.
  • Sorry, Garfield. Man, I couldn't help it!
  • Jon's got those macadamia nut cookies! I'm trying to maintain.

Nermal[edit]

  • Odie's a hero!
  • Keep walking, creepo.
  • Hey, that's Happy Chapman! He's going for a ride in a police car.
  • It just seems like a weird thing to do, bringing a dog into a house that already has a cat.
  • Hey, look! Garfield's dancin' with Odie. They're like buddies now!
  • They're off on an adventure and you're still here!
  • I can see the whole neighbourhood!
  • [gets overjoyed] Garfield! Garfield's a hero now!

Persnikitty/Sir Roland[edit]

  • [to a young girl] Eat hairball, Happy Chapman.
  • In the fur.
  • Would you please just stop calling me that?! My name isn't really Persnikitty, it's Sir Roland.
  • [calms Garfield down already] Oh, this really is too much.
  • And he lets you vacation in this charming animal pound. Hello?
  • Do you know, that is absolutely charming?

Happy Chapman[edit]

  • Good Day New York, I know you're gonna flip for Odie because, he sure is flipping for you.
  • [last lines] Be happy.
  • [to Odie] And let's see how you feel with 200 volts, coursing through that thick canine skull of YOURS.
  • Nice kitty!
  • [after accidentally having cat allergies] Damned cat allergies.
  • This collar, is the dog's future.
  • Now we'll see how smart you really are.

Dialogue[edit]

Nermal: Why would he do a thing like that?
Garfield: Gee, I don't know, Nermal.
Nermal: It just seems like a weird thing to do, bringing a dog into a house that already has a cat.
Garfield: Can we drop it? I mean, it's no BIG deal. It's just a splattered bug on the windshield of my life.
Nermal: A bug?
Garfield: A dimwitted, smelly, goofy, splattered bug that I will deal with appropriately and enthusiastically.

Garfield: Oh, sleeping beauty, wake up! You can stop dreaming about me, because I'm here now. Just wake up. You've got work to do. You're not just my owner, you're my primary care-giver!
Jon: (still asleep) Not now, Garfield.
LucaYou're on the wrong side of the street, fat cat. Beat it!
GarfieldAnd you, Luca, the wrong side of the evolutionary curve.
LucaOkay, that's it. You're gonna get it good today.
GarfieldI make a point to get it good every day. The real question, Luca, is how shall I outwit you this time?
LucaWhat?
GarfieldShall I baffle you with simple math?
LucaI know how to spell.
GarfieldOr should I distract you with something shiny?
LucaNow you're making fun of me.
GarfieldI hope so. You're no fun to look at.
LucaYou'll never get the best of me! Aaah!
GarfieldI think I just did.
LucaNot the ducks again!
GarfieldJump back! And kiss myself. Oooh!
LucaIf I ever get off this chain, you're goin' down.
GarfieldEverybody back up! I don't know how wild this thing is gonna get. I love the smell ofcinnamon-apple in the morning. It smells like... victory.
LucaOooh! I hate this fat cat.

Garfield: [feel relaxed] Aah. So much time and so little I need to do. [Just a chubby little mouse appears when Jon spots it]
Jon: Mouse! [Garfield spots also]
Garfield: No thanks, I'm full.

Garfield: [feel relaxed at home] Oh, do I feel good this morning. I slept like a fat CAT. Hey, tall dark and human, what's for breakfast?
Jon: [looking for Odie, concerned] Odie! Where are you boy?
Garfield: Relax, I think he was gonna camp out.
Jon: Odie?
Garfield: Well, he probably had a sleepover at Luca's, I think.
Jon: Odie! Odie?
Garfield: Well, maybe he's fetching the paper for the neighbors. Where is that silly dog?

Garfield: Oh...delicious!

(Arlene and Nermal while watching Odie very sad)

Arlene: Poor Odie. That cat is such a pig!
Nermal: Garfield's a pig?
Arlene: You never put the dog out at night.
Nermal: Why not?

Happy Chapman: Any sign from the network yet?
Wendell: No, but they're looking for a dog act on Good Day New York.
Happy Chapman: Dog act?! Story of my life: Looking for a dog and I'm stuck with a cat!
Wendell: I thought the segment went quite well!
Happy Chapman: (mockingly) "I thought the segment went quite well!" Of course it went well, you TOAD! The fifty housewives who saw it, loved it.

(Arlene and Nermal confronts Garfield for what he did to Odie)

LucaHey! What are you lookin' at?
Garfield: Nothing, just looking for some company.
Nermal: Keep walking, creepo.
Garfield: What's going on?
Arlene: We know how much you hated Odie. We know how much you wanted him, gone!
Garfield: Wait a minute. All I wanted was to sleep in "My Own" bed!
Arlene: And to do it! You cast Odie out into the cold, cruel, world?!
Nermal: We saw how you LOCKED Odie, outside last night!
Garfield: Oh! I don't believe you guys, I didn't know he was gonna run away. He's a DUMB DOG! No, offense, Luca?
Luca: Uh, what?
Garfield: You can't blame me for that.
Nermal: Any one of us could be next.
Arlene Yeah. There's no room for anybody else in Garfield's world.
GarfieldHuh? Oh, that's a little dramatic.

(Jon gives Garfield some mashed up cat-food and sets down his own microwavable hash-browns next to Garfield's cat food bowl)

Jon: It's liver-flavored.
Garfield: (sarcastically) Mmm, delicious...yuck! (when Jon comes back with a fork he does not notice that Garfield has taken his hash-browns and has put his own bowl of cat-food where Jon left his own breakfast; Jon accidentally takes a bite of the cat food)
Jon: AGH!! Oh, LIVER...!! (he runs to the sink and vomits)
Garfield: (smugly) Actually, it's liver-flavored.

Arlene: Garfield, are you all right?
Garfield: I think so. Luca's about to have Odie for lunch.
Arlene: If it wasn't for Odie, you'd be Luca's chew toy.
Nermal: Yeah, he saved your life. Odie's a hero!

Garfield: Thanks a lot, partner.
Louis: Oh, yeah. Hold up, G!
Garfield: [surprised] What?
Louis: Watch out for the popo! You know, 5-o? Controlo?
Garfield: [still surprised] Huh?
Louis: [start to crazy] Animal control, man!
Garfield: Oh, that popo!

[Louis, a chubby little mouse who was running when Garfield arrives]

Garfield: Louis! What are you doing in the house, when Jon's home?
Louis: Sorry, Garfield. Man, I couldn't help it!
Garfield: Look, when he sees you he expects more from me. Don't you get that?
Louis: Jon's got those macadamia nut cookies! I'm trying to maintain. You understand?
Garfield: Sure, as long as you understand that I have to eat you. [Louis moans]

Happy Chapman: (arrogantly) I can't go on like this anymore, Wendell. I've got to get a dog.
Wendell: Well I think that is a lovely idea! I know you've been sad and lonely since the divorce, and I've tried to be a friend...
Happy Chapman: Not for me you imbecile, for the act. If I could get my hands on a really talented dog, wouldn't Walter J. just choke on his Emmy?
Wendell: (sees something) Like Odie?
Happy Chapman: Yeah, yeah. Now he was good. He was kind of dopey-looking and spry and--
Wendell: (sees the LOST poster) Lost? (sees Odie on the poster)
Happy Chapman: (comes over to the window with Wendell and looks in happiness)

Happy Chapman: I believe you found my dog. He answers to "Odie".
Mrs. Baker: Odie?
Happy Chapman: Family name. Oh, Odie! Oh, come on! There you are! Yes! I can live again now. How could I ever repay you?
Mrs. Baker: An autograph would be splendid!
Happy Chapman: Then splendid it shall be.

About Garfield: The Movie[edit]

  • We just talked for a long time about the movie. And my agents called on Monday and said, "Well, they came back with another offer, and it was nowhere near $50,000." And I said, "That's more befitting of the work I expect to do!" So they went off and shot the movie, and I forgot all about it. Finally, I went out to L.A. to record my lines. And usually when you're looping a movie, if it takes two days, that's a lot. I don't know if I should even tell this story, because it's kind of mean. [beat] What the hell? It's interesting. So I worked all day and kept going, "That's the line? Well, I can't say that." And you sit there and go, What can I say that will make this funny? And make it make sense? And I worked. I was exhausted, soaked with sweat, and the lines got worse and worse. And I said, "Okay, you better show me the rest of the movie, so we can see what we're dealing with." So I sat down and watched the whole thing, and I kept saying, "Who the hell cut this thing? Who did this? What the fuck was Coen thinking?" And then they explained it to me: It wasn't written by that Joel Coen.
  • At least they had whats-her-name. The mind reader, pretty girl, really curvy girl, body's one in a million? What's her name? Help me. You know who I mean.
  • Bill Murray [1]
