|GPF Archive: Monday, November 22, 1999||Wisebottom: ... and here's the temporal acceleration pedal... / Nick: Fooker, you don't really want to travel through time, do you? / Fooker: Aw, come on, Nick! I know YOU want to! You're just scared. Don't you want to peer over Da Vinci's shoulder, or watch the wright brothers' first flight, or discuss physics with Einstein, or help Gene Roddenberry create "Star Trek?" / Nick: Well... yeah... / Fooker: Personally, I want to see Helen of Troy naked...|
|GPF Archive: Tuesday, November 23, 1999||Ki: Nick, you can't be serious about going with Fooker back in time! / Nick: I'm only going because I don't trust him there. / Nick: What if he does something stupid and alters the flow of time? He could destroy entire civilizations. Killing millions! I can't have that on my conscience. I'm going to keep him straight. / Ki: Well... I'm going too, just in case he DOES see Helen of Troy naked so you don't get any ideas. / Nick: With all those naked Greeks running around, who'll notice us?|
|GPF Archive: Wednesday, November 24, 1999||Wisebottom: So, are we ready to begin our wonderful trip through time?
/ Nick: No, nut we're ready to die horrible deaths in this rattletrap. / Wisebottom: Good! Now just hit the start button and away you go!
/ Fooker: Which button? This one? / Wisebottom: NO! NOT THAT--

|GPF Archive: Saturday, November 27, 1999||PoliceBit: You are in violation of global ordinance 8E3GK-691Z, parking a time ship in a no time ship zone and wearing tacky black spandex uniforms in a public place. You are all under arrest. / Fooker: ! / Fooker: But officer, we're hapless travelers from the twentieth century! We have no knowledge of your laws and customs. We accidentally went forward in time when we meant to go backward. Can you help us? / PoliceBot: Traveling from the twentieth century without a temporal passport is a felony offence... / Nick: Einstein, go to way...|
|GPF Archive: Monday, November 29, 1999||PoliceBot: You are under arrest for violating global ordinance 8EGK-691Z...

|GPF Archive: Saturday, December 4, 1999||Wisebottom: I'm sorry my time machine proved to be so much trouble, Nicholas. I promise I will dismantle it so it can never be used for evil. / Wisebottom: Won't you forgive me, my nephew? I've apologized profusely! Please say something to me! / Nick: Yet you to say to anything have don't I. / Wisebottom: Oh... still suffering from time lag...|
|GPF Archive: Monday, December 6, 1999||Nick: Good day, Ladies and Gentlemen. With the end of 1999 swiftly approaching, I am here to happily inform you that we here at GPF will not be doing a big "Y2K" story line. / Nick: We know you're sick and tired of hearing about "Y2K" and all the doomsaying it involves. Rest assured, you won't hear that acronym again in this comic! / Fooker: Hey Nick, here's the script for the next few weeks. / [[GPF script's title read: Y2K]] / Nick: I stand corrected.|
|GPF Archive: Tuesday, December 7, 1999||Ki: Who's Nick calling? / Fooker: Jeff Darlington, the guy who draws our strip. / Fooker: He wants to formally protest the forthcoming "y2k" story line. He thinks it's like jumping on an overloaded bandwagon. / Fooker: But I don't think he's having much success... / Nick: Stop screening your calls! I know you're there, so pick up!|
|GPF Archive: Wednesday, December 8, 1999||Ki: Is it really so bad that we're doing a "Y2K" story, Nick? / Nick: I'm sick of it, the readers are sick of it... We don't need it. / Ki: Even if this IS a trendy topic, Nick, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! We'll never get the chance to do a story like this again. We could be part of history! / Nick: Oh, we'll be history, all right, if our server goes down January 1st... / Ki: Har dee har har har, Sarcasm Boy...|
|GPF Archive: Thursday, December 9, 1999||Tag: Nick confronts the artist about the Y2K story line: / Nick: Jeff, we have to talk. / Jeff thinks: Uh, oh... / Nick: I want to protest this new "Y2K" story line. Should we stoop so low as to jump on the bandwagon and beat a dead horse to death? The readers are sick of "Y2K"... / Nick: ...or are you just running out of ideas? / Jeff: Since when has this strip been drawn by committee?|
|GPF Archive: Friday, December 10, 1999||Tag: Nick confronts the artist about the Y2K story line:
/ Jeff: Sorry, Nick. The schedule stands. We start the Y2K story Monday.
/ Nick: <
|GPF Archive: Saturday, December 11, 1999||Ki: So Jeff Darlington used your hatred of all things "Y2K" to build a week of "filler" strips? / Nick: [[steaming]] / Nick: Well, if nothing else, I've had my voice heard. I'm not happy with us doing a "Y2K" story, because I feel there's been too much hype in the media already. The last thing we should do is propagate it. / Ki: And you wasted a week of strips in the process... / Nick: I feel so used... / Fooker: Good night, everybody!|
|GPF Archive: Monday, December 13, 1999||Nick thinks: (Sigh) Here we are, nineteen days from the start of the year 2000, and I can't wait to get this whole mess over with. / Nick thinks: For the past few years, we've been saturated with it, and it's only intensified over the past few months. I'm sick of hearing about the "Millennium Bug," "The Y2K Menace," "The End of Civilization As We Know It"... <
|GPF Archive: Tuesday, December 14, 1999||Fooker: Whaddyamean, you're not doing anything for New Years? / Nick: I'm protesting the whole "Y2K" mess by not celebrating. / Fooker: Aw, c'mon, Nick! My next door neighbor Chuck is throwing a huge bash, and he asked me to bring all my buds. It wouldn't be a party without my best pal... / Nick: Then I guess it won't be a party then... / Fooker: And I thought The Grinch only came out on Christmas and Halloween...|
|GPF Archive: Wednesday, December 15, 1999||Fooker: ...and let me tell you, if anyone knows how to throw a party, it's my neighbor, Chuck...
/ Ki: Sounds like fun. Have you asked Nick? / Fooker: Hmph.
/ Ki: Uh oh. That sounded encouraging.
/ Fooker: Mr. Party-pooper is protesting the Y2K hype by not celebrating New Year's Eve. / Ki: Bet I could change his mind...
/ Fooker: If you'll wear that dress you work to that Black-Tie Gala in April, I'll change MY mind... <
|GPF Archive: Thursday, December 16, 1999||Ki thinks: If I can get Nick to come to Fooker's friend's party, it might be a great opportunity to finally tell him how I feel about him... / Ki thinks: But he's so grumbly over the Y2K hype, he'd never go for it. He really needs a good does of fun, though. So how do I get him to come? / Nick: Fooker's going to have a LAN party at his apartment next door?!?|
|GPF Archive: Friday, December 17, 1999||Nick: No, I don't care if Fooker _is_ going to have a LAN party too. I'm not going to that New Year's party. / Ki: Suit yourself / Ki: We're going to have a small Quake tournament, some "Star Trek" trivia, watch the entire "Star Wars" trilogy back to back, and even broadcast it all on Fooker's webcam. / Ki: Oh, and I bought a little red party dress just for the occasion, too... but I don't know if I'll wear it 'cause it's a little _skimpy_,,, / Nick: [[thinking]] On second thought...|
|GPF Archive: Saturday, December 18, 1999||Fooker: I don't believe it... Nick actually agreed to come to the Millennium New Year's Party? How'd you convince him? / [[Beat]] / Ki: Let's just say your friend Chuck is going to kill me. Fire up your LAN; I've got to go buy a skimpy red dress.|
|GPF Archive: Monday, December 20, 1999||Trudy: Well, well... I hear Mister Grouchy decided to forget his Y2K hatred to join us at Chuck's Millenium party... / Nick: I still hate Y2K, but yes, I'm going. / Trudy: You know, as Chuck's neighbour, I'll be there too, but I technically don't have a date yet. It would be so disappointing to be there all alone... / Nick: I know... / Nick: Why don't the four of us all go together? That way none of us will feel awkward. / Trudy: I don't think that's what I was implying.|
|GPF Archive: Tuesday, December 21, 1999||Fooker: Kewl! We're all gonna be together for the start of the new millennium... / Nick: The millenium doesn't start until the year 2001. / Trudy: [[to Ki]] You do realize that Nick is going to be _my_date. / Ki: [[to Trudy]] What?! I don't think so... / Trudy: [[to Ki]] We'll see... / Fooker: No, it starts in the year 2000. / Nick: 2001. / Fooker: Hey, gang! Let's just enjoy it. Nothing could ruin the fun we have planned. / Dwayne: [[enters]] You guys don't have plans for New Year's right...? Heh, heh...|
|GPF Archive: Wednesday, December 22, 1999||Dwayne: I know you guys have plans for New Year's, but I'm going to need a few hours of your time... / Nick, Fooker, Ki, Trudy: WHAT?! / Dwayne: One of our customers needs us to hand-hold their servers through a tricky reboot a couple hours before midnight. I promise you'll be in and out, and back to the party in no time. / Trudy: At least you won't need ME here.. / Dwayne: Trudy, you'll be helping me with their ISO9000 documentation.|
|GPF Archive: Thursday, December 23, 1999||Fooker: I can't believe we have to come in on New Year's Eve to reboot a few lousy servers... / Dwayne: Thankfully, that's all we need to do. / Dwayne: The Richards account is the last to need Y2K tweaking, and this is it. You guys have done incredible work to avoid Y2K problems, and this should be a tribute. I don't want to MAKE you guys do this... / Dwayne: So will triple overtime pay be any incentive...? / Fooker: I don't think Chuck will mind us being a little late... / Nick: I'm free...|
|GPF Archive: Friday, December 24, 1999||Tag: New Year's Eve, 1999: / [[Ki walks into GPF from the cold outside]] / Ki: Hey, guys. How goes the reboot? / Nick: So far so good. We have one up and running already. / Dwayne: I really want to thank you guys for doing this. As always, you guys amaze me with your efficiency... / Fooker: No sweat, Chief. Especially with triple overtime pay... / Fooker: ...Heck, it's enough to make me forget about New Year's parties... / Nick: But not all of us... / [[Ki has taken off her coat to reveal a skin-tight party dress]]|
|GPF Archive: Saturday, December 25, 1999||Nick: Almost done here... / Dwayne: This is great, gang! You'll get to make it to your party, and Nicole and I will make it to ours. / Fooker: Man, it's really comin' down out there... / Ki: The snow kept getting heavier as I got here. We're supposed to get more tonight. / Fooker: I wonder how much we're gonna get... / Trudy: Wonder no more! I just heard on the radio... The roads are closed!|
