Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 04, 1987
Calvin: Hobbes, I'm not kidding. If you don't get me loose in ten seconds... Hobbes: You got yourself into this "Mr. Houdini," not me. Calvin: But I'm supposed to be at dinner! Mom's gonna kill me! Hobbes: Excape artists have a risky trade. Hey, here's morse code! Calvin: Ok, I'm sorry I called you names. I said I'm sorry, right? Now untie me! Hobbes: Here's how you say banana in morse. Dash dot dot dot, dot dash... Dad: What is that kid doing?! It sounds like a chair thumping around the room. Mom: Well, his dinner is stone cold. I hope he's happy.
