Subject: [ADS-L] Famous Quotations from Comic Strips

For the second edition of the Yale Book of Quotations, I would welcome
suggestions of famous quotes from comic strips.  These could be one-off
quotes or could be recurring catchphrases (like "leapin' lizards" from
Little Orphan Annie).  I believe I already have the more famous lines from
Peanuts and Pogo.
