Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for November 24, 1985
Calvin: ...outrage! Why should I go to bed? I'm not tired! It's only 7:30! This is tyranny! I'm..... zzzz. Dad: Good night, Calvin. Calvin: Will you check for monsters under the bed? Dad: No monsters. You're safe. Calvin: What about in the dresser? Dad: Calvin. I'm sure there are no monsters in your dresser. Go to sleep. Calvin: Great. I'll bet that's where they all are. They'll come out and kill us as soon as we fall asleep. Hobbes: So who's going to fall asleep? Clavin: Well, we'll just have to get the monsters first. You irritate them with this horn, and I'll nail 'em with my dart gun when they come out. Get ready! I hear on coming! Monster: What's all that noise?! Calvin: Aaieee! A monster in the hallway!! Dad: Dear, will you come up here a minute? Calvin: I think I wounded him. Give me the bat and I'll finish him off!
