Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray), who competes with a dog named Odie for the affection and attention of their human master, Jon Arbuckle (Meyer), when Odie is introduced into their home much to Garfield's disgust. When Odie is kidnapped by a mean dog trainer, however, Garfield feels responsible, so he gets off his favorite spot and gets into action to rescue his fellow pet...
Garfield: Ahh..., so much time and so littel I need to do.
Garfield: No, thanks, I'm full.
Jon: Get him, Garfield!
Garfield: Get him, Jon.
Garfield: It's always got to be smashing and crashing. Nobody poisons anymore. There's my ball!
Jon: What good is a cat if he can't chase a mouse?
Garfield: I don't do the "chase" thing.
Garfield: I know you don't hear me, but can't you just listen?
Garfield: Louis, what are you doing in the house, in Jon's home?
Louis: Sorry, Garfield, and I couldn't help it.
Garfield: Look, when he sees you here, he expects more from me, don't you get that?
Louis: Yes, he's got that mint cookie I'm trying to maintain, you understand?
Garfield: Sure, as long as you understand I have to eat you
