"Any monsters under my bed tonight?"

"Nope." "No." "Uh-Uh."

"Well there *better* not be, I'd hate to have to torch one with my flamethrower!"

"You have a flamethrower?"

"They lie. I lie."

"Mom, can Hobbes and I rent a VCR and a tape tonight?"

"I don't think so, Calvin. It's a school night."

"What if we got an educational tape?"

"Like what?"

"Cannibal Stewardess Vixens Unchained."


"Now she won't even let us go into the store."
"I think we'd learn a lot by watching that."

Hobbes: "Did you make any resolutions for the New Year?"

Calvin: "Heck no."

"I'm fine just the way I am! Why should I change? In fact, I think it's high time the world started changing to suit me! I don't see why I should do all the changing around here! If the New Year requires resolutions, I say it's up to everyone else, not me! I don't need to improve! Everyone else does! How about you? Did you make any resolutions?"

Hobbes: "Well, I had resolved to be less offended by human nature, but I think I blew it already."

Vicki  (vmburkhardt) | 2 comments Hobbes: I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each others dreams, we can be together all the time.

message 15: by Vicki (new)

Vicki  (vmburkhardt) | 2 comments Calvin's Dad: "Oh look, yet another Christmas TV special! How touching to have the meaning of Christmas brought to us by cola, fast food, and beer.... Who'd have ever guessed that product consumption, popular entertainment, and spirituality would mix so harmoniously?"

Eastofoz (Calvin and his mother in the living room)

Mom: Calvin don't just throw your wet coat on the floor! Hang it up where it belongs! I'm not looking for extra work around here.

Calvin: Oh, Like I am.


(Calvin banging like crazy on pots)

Mom: Will you stop that racket!!! You're driving me crazy!

Calvin: ..and a checkmark for Tuesday.


(Calvin taking a test in school)

Test: What important even took place on December 16, 1773?

Calvin's written answer: I do not believe in linear time. There is no past and future: all is one, and existence in the temporal sense is illusory. This question, therefore is meaningless and impossible to answer.

Calvin: When in doubt deny all terms and definitions.


(Calvin taking a test)

Test: Where is Plymouth Rock?

Calvin's written answer: I am not presently at liberty to divulge that information as it might compromise our agents in the field.

Calvin: I understand my rests are popular reading in the teachers' lounge.

message 22: by Eastofoz (new)

Eastofoz Anyone know which book is the strip where he's in school and they get their report cards and Suzie yells out that she got all A's while Calvin, who got D's and C's says something like "my life is easier when I keep everyone's expectations low" or something like that?
