In Asterix and the Cauldron, after Asterix is forced to leave the village and Obelix follows him.
Asterix: Go back to the village, Obelix. You don't have to follow me. I've been banished. Obelix: Banished? Very well then, we'll be banished together! (Manly Tears ensue)
At the end of Asterix and Caesar's Gift, when Orthopaedix and, more importantly, Influenza are planning to return to Lutetia, Asterix finds the lovelorn Obelix (who has fallen out with Asterix over Influenza) sitting on a bench. He sits next to him and gives him a friendly dig in the ribs. In the next panel, Asterix is flying sideways through the air past a startled Getafix, smiling ear to ear and shouting "OBELIX IS FRIENDS WITH ME AGAIN!"note A Call Back to a similar exchange earlier in the book when Asterix gave Obelix a friendly dig in the ribs and Obelix accidentally sent Asterix flying by returning the dig.
