    • TRIVIA (4)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Binky: Are you Jon Arbuckle, and is today your birthday?
        Jon: Yes.
        Binky: Hey, Gary, tell him what we have for him.
        Gary: (voice-over) Right you are, Binky. Jon Arbuckle, you'll receive a special Binky Birthday Surprise. First, he'll sing "Happy Birthday" to you in a restaurant and embarrass you in front of all your friends; then he'll present humiliating gifts to you, hit you with pies, and dress you in a costume guaranteed to make you wish you were never born. These and other demeaning birthday surprises are all yours, courtesy of Binky the Clown.
        Binky: Well, what do you say?!
        (Garfield sprays Binky away with the hose)
        Garfield: There, I got rid of him. That's your present. Happy birthday.

      • Binky: (Huge buzzer goes off) Uh, oh! You know what that means?
        Garfield: This show has been canceled? I hope?

      • Binky's Song

        Binky: (singing)
        I'm a quiet kind of guy. I'm really sort of shy.
        I'm deep, sincere, and rather thinky.
        But whenever I go out, the kids begin to shout,
        "Look, guys, over there, it's Binky!".
        So I go, HEY, KIDS! Don't be lazy!
        HEY, KIDS! Let's get crazy!
        Run and jump and hop! Don't let your pants fall down!
        Fun time doesn't stop when you're with Binky the Clown!
        HEY, KIDS!
        HEY, KIDS!!
        HEY, KIDS!!!
        You think this is just a little undignified?

      • Garfield: What day is it? ...What if it's Monday? ...Yeah, I know yesterday was Friday, but Mondays are sneaky. It would be just like one to bump off Saturday and Sunday so it could get at me sooner.
