I know it's slightly late, but I've been meaning to post this for a while now in part because of how much it reminds me of the current administration:

CALVIN: I'm getting nervous about Christmas.

HOBBES: You're worried you haven't been good?

CALVIN: That's just the question. It's all relative. What's Santa's definition? How good do you have to be to qualify as good?
I haven't KILLED anybody. See, that's good, right? I haven't committed any felonies. I didn't start any wars. I don't practice cannibalism.
Wouldn't you say that's pretty good? Wouldn't you say I should get lots of presents?

HOBBES: But maybe good is more than the absence of bad.

CALVIN: See, THAT's what worries me.

…ok, assuming I can get an overnight letter to the North Pole, what would you charge to write me a glowing character reference?

HOBBES: Oh no, I'm not going to perjure myself for you! MY record's clean!
