    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Garfield: Your friend scared me out of 3 of my 9 lives. McCraven: He's not really my friend, he took over my job.
        Garfield: He also took our house. So what do we do?
        McCraven: I guess the only thing to do is to out-scare him.

      • Jon: (about the police) He didn't believe me.
        Garfield: Hey, I wouldn't believe a grown man with duckies and horsies on his pajamas either.

      • Jon: (Garfield drinks the whole milkshake) You were supposed to drink half!
        Garfield: I did! The bottom half.

      • Garfield: What am I going to do? I know, I'll call the Ghostbusters. No, wait, their show was canceled.

      • Diablo: (about McCraven) This pathetic poltergeist is an insult to every man, woman, and specter among us! He should be fired at once, stripped of his sheet, and I should be given his plum assignment!

    • NOTES (4)

      • When Garfield thinks about calling the Ghostbusters that is an injoke because Lorenzo Music was the original voice of Peter Venkman on (The Real Ghostbusters).

      • When Garfield turns on The Binky Show, the sounds playing for the show are the same sounds used in "Sound Judgement" when Odie's put in charge of sound effects and the machine goes haywire.

      • Diablo is voiced by James Earl Jones, who is best known for the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies, and appearing in the Verizon commercials.

      • First (and only) appearance of the ghost of Diablo and McCraven.
