Griflet and Guenevere were seen to be from the same hometown
here and in the one when he seats her
in an internet cafe, when we first see she thinks his name is Girflet. (A
quick websearch suggests both variations on the name are equally valid.)
I can't for the life of me find the latter cartoon in the archive. I looked at a thumbnail at least of every cartoon in the archive, and looked at and wordsearched the strip descriptions in my spreadsheet for pretty much every verb and noun in the dialog, and came up dry. This is a first. If you come across it, let me know. If you think I misremember that I actually drew and updated with it, let me know (but I remember readers commenting on it).
Speaking of firsts, looking for Griflet's previous instances in the contemporary arc makes me realize that Griflet's the first character to have one arc where his wardrobe color is different. In the contemporary arc his wardrobe is in Guenevere's colors; in all other arcs his wardrobe is in Arthur's colors.
One last note of possible interest: I originally meant to run this gag last Sunday, but I spent so much time looking for the gag where Griflet works in an internet cafe that I left myself no time to produce this one.
Later (14:30 GMT) A coupla readers emailed with the cartoon I was looking for. More tomorrow.
