    If you can’t reach for the stars, at least you can reach for the butter.

    When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are…. except for Rat who’s dreams are likely to be immoral!

    It’s good to dream big but sometimes it pays to dream small.

    Since I retired, I have dreams about being at work. It feels great when I realize that I don’t have to do that anymore.

    Man’s reach should exceed his grasp, else why have a lazy susan?

    Rat actually said something positive to help a friend, so that would make him Un-Rat?

    I think I shall swoon! Rat actually gave some good advice; and Pig accepted it; and everything turned out well!

    Did I come to the wrong comic strip?

    Believe me, I wouldn’t want my dreams to come true. They’d break reality.
