Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 09, 1990
Calvin: The Derkins dame wasn't talking. Someone had gotten to her first and shut her up good. I knew Susie, and closing her mouth would've taken some work. I needed a clue and a drink. One of them I knew where to find. Miss Wormwood: You've made enough trips to the water fountain. Finish your quiz. Calvin: Suddenly a gorilla pulled me in an alley, squeezed my spine into an accordion, and played a polka on me with brass knuckles! Man: Youse ain't goin' nowhere, flatfoot.
