Darkwing Duck (1991–1992) was an animated series produced by Disney Television Animation for ABC and for syndication as part of The Disney Afternoon. It follows Drake Mallard (a.k.a. Darkwing Duck, a costumed vigilante in the city of St. Canard), his daughter Gosalyn, his sidekick and pilot Launchpad McQuack, and occasionally boy-next-door Honker Muddlefoot as they fight to protect the city and sometimes the world from supervillains such as the Fearsome Five and criminal organizations such as F.O.W.L. (the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny). Originally a spinoff of DuckTales, the show was an affectionate parody of superhero and spy media, and focused on comedy and action.


Season 1[edit]

Darkly Dawns the Duck, Part 1 [1.01][edit]

Darkwing Duck: [first line of series] This is the city of St. Canard. Like any other major metropolis, it has its problems with the criminal element.

Darkwing: [To policeman] Another order of dastardly delinquents delivered on your doorstep, courtesy of Darkwing Duck! That's two words, not three; both D's capitalized. Here's my photo. If the papers need more glossies my number's on the card. [chuckles]

Darkwing: I thought this was the age of media glut! Where's the Action News van when you need them? ...and I spent all afternoon ironing this cape.

Darkwing: [gets smashed by his refrigerator in his kitchen obstacle course] I always forget the milk.

Taurus Bulba: Let me understand this, Hammerhead... you and your "associates" are questioning my plan?
Hammerhead: Gee, boss, no... well, sorta. The boys and I were wondering if we couldn't wait until the train stops before we steal the Ramrod!
Taurus Bulba: Ohhhhhhhh, you mean after the army takes control of the weapon with its tanks and jeeps and hundreds of guards! [snorts angrily]
Hammerhead: I guess we didn't think of that! [to Hoof and Mouth] Why didn't you think of that?!
Taurus Bulba: [grabs Hammerhead by the neck] Because I am the brains and you are the stooge!
Hammerhead: [wheezing] That's it, boss. I'm a stooge. Just call me Curly! [chokes]

Warden: Bulba, I trust you're still enjoying your stay in prison?
Taurus Bulba: It's peaceful. No one bothers me. Actually, it suits my business needs perfectly.

Darkwing: [watching Taurus Bulba's condor through binoculars] I know birds fly south for the winter, but this is the first one I've seen with luggage!

[Darkwing crashes throught the roof of Launchpad's hanger.]
Darkwing: Bruised, battered, but never defeated, Darkwing Duck springs back into action! [pops his back] Clever of me to use my spine to break my fall like that.

Launchpad: [first line] Hold it right there, you pirate! Nobody messes with the airplanes in my hangar, or my name isn't Launchpad McQuack!

Launchpad: I have a scrapbook full of all your newspaper clippings! Of course, it isn't a very big scrapbook...

Darkwing: [nervously] Um, wouldn't it be easier to catch the bad guys if we were flying the other way?
Launchpad: Oh yeah. [turns plane around forward] Sometimes I have trouble with that...

Darkwing: [whines] They got away...
Launchpad: [laughs] Can't argue that point, DW! So what do we do next?
Darkwing: "We"? "We" do nothing. I work alone.
Launchpad: But I could be your sidekick.
Darkwing: Singing cowboys have sidekicks! I rely on me, nobody but me, got that?
Launchpad: [grabs Darkwing's leg] Please, please, please, please, please...
Darkwing: [pulls away] Let me make this clear to you: I never want to see you again!
Launchpad: Okay... so do you want my phone number?

Taurus Bulba: The Ramrod is useless without the arming code. Unfortunately, someone arranged an accident for Professor Waddlemeyer last year before I could learn it! Go to the St. Canard Orphanage and bring me his granddaughter. She was practically raised in his lab. If anyone knows the code, she does. After we get the code, then she can have an accident [laughs] like her grandfather. I trust you can get the order right this time!
Hammerhead: No problem. Code first, THEN accident.

Orphanage Director: You know Gosalyn, and you willingly came to see her?

Gosalyn: [first line] Comin' through! All right, play it where it lays!

Gosalyn: Look, I don't know anything about a pig and I was nowhere near the boys' bathroom at the time!

Gosalyn: [to Hammerhead] After Mom and Dad died, Grandpa was the only family I had in the whole world. But since he's been gone, I've made lots of friends here, so it's not so bad. [sighs] Until adoption day. Seems like I'm always saying good-bye... to someone. You know, I'm not a problem child! Grandpa said I just have a lot of spirit. He says when you're full of spirit, everyone else looks empty. Someday I'll meet somebody who understands that. Then I'll be adopted.

[Darkwing is trying to find a place besides his hideout for Gosalyn to stay.]
Darkwing: Where's my phonebook? I'll just find you a hotel or something. [under breath] Maybe the animal shelter has an opening.
Gosalyn: Well, I suppose I could leave, but then I might let it slip where a certain masked avenger hangs out.
Darkwing: You wouldn't!
Gosalyn: [shrugs] Hey, I'm a kid, I'm supposed to be irresponsible

[After Taurus Bulba bursts out of jail in a giant airship shaped like his head]
Warden: Guess they been makin' more than license plates.

Darkly Dawns the Duck, Part 2 [1.02][edit]

Darkwing: A desperate criminal is at large, and terror runs through the streets like a pair of cheap stockings! But it's hopeless! No one gets the drop on Dark-
Gosalyn: [drops on top of Darkwing] Gosalyn Waddlemeyer! Boy, Darkwing, you gotta work on your narration. They write better stuff on Saturday morning cartoons.
Darkwing: Oh yeah? Well, how's this? [flips Gosalyn upside down] In a lightning move, Darkwing turns the tables-
[Gosalyn starts tickling him.]
Darkwing: -on the t-tiny t-terror... will you stop that! That's no fair tickling...

Gosalyn: How come you wear a mask?
Darkwing: Because... there is nothing so terrifying to the criminal mind as the unknown... I am the thing that goes bump in the night! I am the neurosis that requires a five-hundred-dollar-an-hour shrink!
Gosalyn: You mean you don't take off your mask for anyone?
Darkwing: That's right. Not no one, not never.
Gosalyn: What about a really, really, really close friend? [bats eyelashes]
Darkwing: Well, uh... maybe. Someday.

Darkwing: What is a Waddlemeyer Ramrod anyway?
Gosalyn: [recites] It's a trackiospecific device that disrupts gravitational bonds on a molecular level allowing manipulation on a macro scale.
Darkwing: What does that mean?
Gosalyn: I dunno. I think it makes things float and stuff. [pulls out a photo] Here's a photo. That's grandpa.
Darkwing: Looks like you two were close.
Gosalyn: [sadly] We were. [crosses arms] But he never told me any code!
Darkwing: Unfortunately, Taurus Bulba doesn't know that. His men will be searching for you, you know. [chuckles] Although if they knew how much spirit you have, they'd probably run the other way.
Gosalyn: Spirit? [kisses Darkwing's cheek] Thanks, Darkwing!
Darkwing: Uh, sure...

Gosalyn: [ten seconds after going to bed] I can't sleep!
Darkwing: Aw, you just need something to relax you. I know I have a large mallet around here somewhere.

Gosalyn: This has the suspicious ring of reverse psychology to it.

Darkwing: [hearing Gosalyn's snore] This kid could wake Elvis...

Taurus Bulba: Somewhere down there is this Darkwing Duck. I've watched him. I know his weakness. His posing, his flamboyance, the mask and cape! Ha, ha! That hat! It all indicates an ego the size of a small planet!

[Taurus Bulba is sending Darkwing a message in coded message from his airship.]
Hammerhead: But boss, what if he doesn't know morse code?
Taurus Bulba: [laughs] That do-gooder? He probably sleeps with the Boy Scout handbook under his pillow.
[In Darkwing Tower, Darkwing pulls the Boy Scout handbook out from under his pillow]
Darkwing: Phew! Sure glad I saved this baby!

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the jailer who throws away the key! I AM-- [notices he is alone] feeling really stupid. Boy I hate it when I'm early. You'd think criminal masterminds would be more punctual.

Gosalyn: Eat fiber, horn head!

Gosalyn: [to Taurus Bulba] Darkwing Duck is gonna crush you like a stale corn chip!

Darkwing: I could have had a life, but no, I chose to be a clown in a mask and cape! All I need are floppy shoes and bozo nose!!!

Gosalyn: I'm sorry, Darkwing. If they hadn't caught me, you wouldn't have risked your life.
Darkwing: Gos, before I met you I didn't have a life worth risking.

Gosalyn: [after the condor drops her and almost lets her hit the ground] And to think, I used to pay money for rides like that.

Clovis: Mom was right. I should have been a dental hygienist.

Taurus Bulba: I underestimated you once, Darkwing Duck! This time you simply die!

Orphanage Director: I'm sorry, Mr. Mallard. Gosalyn's not feeling very well today. And frankly, it appears you've seen better days yourself.
Drake Mallard: Oh, the bandages? Just a little kitchen accident. I always forget the milk.

Gosalyn: I thought you were-
Drake: Ha! Nobody can hurt Dark- uh, Drake Mallard. Besides, I've got to take care of myself, now that I've going to have an adopted daughter to worry about.

Beauty and the Beet [1.03][edit]

Dr. Reginald Bushroot: [first line] Hey, stop it you guys! Give it back!

Bushroot: Son of a broccoli! What have I done to myself?

Bushroot: [sadly] All I wanted to do was make the world a better place to live. Now look at me. I'm a walking salad bar.

[After a tree rescues Bushroot from the puppy that was chasing him]
Bushroot: I guess a dog's not a tree's best friend. Wait a minute, you moved! But you can't move! But you did move. I must be losing my mind. I gotta sit down for a moment.
[A chair-shaped flower sprouts out of the ground.]
Bushroot: [sits down] Ah, thanks. Oh no, it happened again. A drink? Yes, that's what I need. A drink. [drinks some water through his root-foot] I must have some telepathic link with plants. This is a scientific breakthrough! Yes, that's it! I'm the Doctor Doolittle of the plant world!

Darkwing: I was soon to discover that the only thing more dangerous than a half-plant, half-duck is a half-plant, half-duck in love.

Darkwing: [wrapping himself in vines] We're creating the perfect disguise to catch Bushroot!
Dr. Rhoda Dendron: But that's poison ivy!
Darkwing: I see. Well, then, that explains this incredible itching sensation. AAAAAH!

Darkwing: You feel "so sorry" for that villainous vegetable? That, that.. flipped-out, felonious flora?!? I'M the one with the Swiss-cheese cape!

Bushroot: Ah, what a beautiful bride you are! And with a beautiful blossom like you at my side, the whole world will be green with envy! This is the happiest day of my life! [blows nose]
Rhoda Dendron: But-- but-- I can't marry you, Dr. Bushroot! I'm a working girl, my career means too much to me right now! Besides, you're a plant, I'm a duck, it'll never work out.

Darkwing: [waving weedwhacker, which suddenly sputters and dies] It slices! It DICES! It-- runs out of gas...

Getting Antsy [1.04][edit]

Darkwing: Have I ever told you the story of the little girl, the golf club, and the firing squad?

Darkwing: Sometimes, being a parent makes crimefighting seem easy!

Drake: Admission for two adults and two tiny terrorists.

Darkwing: Phew, if that's Gosalyn, I can't be in a land of giants. I've probably just been... shrunk... to the size... of a... bug. Bleah.

Hamburger Hippo Waiter: [boredly] Don't shoot. The money's in the register.
Darkwing: Oh, no, no. I'm not a robber.
Waiter: You're not a robber?
Darkwing: No.
Waiter: You're just some weirdo in a mask?
Darkwing: Correct. I am just some weirdo in a mask.

Miniature Darkwing: [squeaky voice] Launchpad, I've been shrunk!
Launchpad: What was that, Darkwing? I can't understand you! [holds Darkwing up to his ear]
Darkwing: [shrieks] I'VE! BEEN! SHRUNK!
Launchpad: Well, gee, DW, I coulda told you that.

Night of the Living Spud [1.05][edit]

Bushroot: Never again will I be lonely! Never again will I be told, 'I can't go out with you, you're just a shrub!' I've found the way to obtain the perfect bride! I'm growing my own.

Bushroot: [to a sales girl he has tied up] Which color do you think would look better on my bride? The pink or the blue?
Sales Girl: Well, what does your bride look like?
Bushroot: She's a large potato.
Sales Girl: Then I'd have to go with the blue.
Darkwing: [refering to a black and white horizontal striped fabric] You'll need this to make your prison uniform, Bushroot.

Darkwing: There are no vampire potatoes. Scientists who turn themselves into plants, yes, but vampire potatoes? That's ridiculous!

Gosalyn: [about the Muddlefoots, who have been turned into zombies] Dad! Something is wrong with them! They're watching a test pattern!
Darkwing: Gooooooood, maybe they can understand the plot!

Herb Muddlefoot: [about the test pattern] Hey, I seen this movie before!

Apes of Wrath [1.06][edit]

Darkwing: Forget it, Gosalyn, you're too young to explode.

Dirty Money [1.07][edit]

Launchpad: [smashing around inside a giant vacuum] This reminds me of my first flight. Actually, of all my flights.

Darkwing: Singed... but... triumphant.

Duck Blind [1.08][edit]

Megavolt: [first line] Hmm, nice filament.
Darkwing: Fortunately, we have a psychological advantage.
Launchpad: Because we’re sane, and he’s not?
Darkwing: No, because Megavolt is afraid of me. I've sent him to the electric chair. Twice.

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night!
Megavolt: Happy Flapping!

Darkwing: You- are not a well person!
Megavolt: Oh, and you're normal? "I am the cold sore that stings your lip?" We're definitely talking demented here!

Darkwing: He's using everything but the kitchen sink!
[Megavolt magnetizes a sink, jumps inside, and flies away in it]
Darkwing: I stand corrected.

Darkwing: [walks out of blindingly bright room] Launchpad, will you please turn on the lights?
Launchpad: Uh... The lights are on, DW.
Darkwing: [crashes into a mannequin] Oh, I see.
Launchpad: What do you see?
Darkwing: Nothing. [swallows] Absolutely nothing.

Megavolt: Have you lost your senses?!?!
Darkwing: Just one.

Megavolt: Blast it! YOU'RE HANDICAPPED!
Darkwing: We prefer the term physically challenged.

Comic Book Capers [1.09][edit]

Megavolt: [as Big Chief Power Bill] That my assistant, Little Running Gag.

Darkwing: [as Death Valley Duck] Surrender, Big Chief. You're surrounded by an army of twelve-thousand soldiers. [whispers] That's an old military ploy we call "lying".

Drake: Launchpad, are you reading my comic book?
Launchpad: Who, Me?

Drake: Did Hemingway have this problem? No, because he didn't live next door to the Muddlefoots!

Drake: I'd love to stay and chew the fat, babe...

Darkwing: Your little game is over, you revolting revisionist! Give it back, so I can finish off the scene where I finish you off!
Megavolt: Wrong! In the last scene I'm gonna finish you off!
Darkwing: Sorry pal, this thing's reality-based. You don't stand a chance against me!
Megavolt: That's what you think, you hackneyed hack! In this edition, I'm now ten times bigger and more powerful!
Darkwing: No way! Lemme see that. Where?
Megavolt: Right there.
Darkwing: What?! What kind of crazy science fiction are you trying to write? In any case, you oughta be twenty times smaller!
Megavolt: What do you think you're doing?! I'm bigger!
Darkwing: Have it your way. I can beat you no matter what size shoe you wear.

Darkwing: Oh, good, saved by my faithful pet, Super Bunny! Wait a minute! Since when did I have a faithful pet named "Super Bunny"?

Water Way to Go [1.10][edit]

Darkwing: A hero does the undoable, risks the unriskable, and thinks the unthinkable!

Darkwing: If it's oil Steelbeak wants, it's oil he'll get.
Princess of Oilrabia: My people's oil? Are you crazy?
Darkwing: Well, maybe a little manic-depressive on weekends... But I'm sane enough to know that a couple of heroes like us can overcome the likes of F.O.W.L. Launchpad, let's get dangerous!
Launchpad: Did you hear that? He called me a hero!

Launchpad: I'm coming, DW! I'm coming!

Steelbeak: Between the firepower of my battlecruiser and this baby [the weather machine], the city'll be throwing out the red carpet toot suite. And to top it off, Darkwing Dodo is somewhere out there, having dinner with Davy Jones!

Launchpad: Hey, surf's up, DW dude!
Darkwing: Launchpad, you saved my life!
Launchpad: Heroes are always saving lives; it's what we do. You might want to save the thanking part, though. There's no place to land!

Princess of Oilrabia: My people thank you, as do I. With heroes like you, the world is a safer place. Goodbye, my champion.
Launchpad: Well...you know, DW here is the real hero...
Darkwing:...Is the luckiest sidekick in the world! 'Bye, Princess. Me and the boss have to be going. Launchpad, I underestimated you. As far as I'm concerned, we're colleagues, brothers in arms.
Launchpad: You mean it?
Darkwing: I sure do! From now on, we're one hundred percent equals. (pause) Now get the bags.
Launchpad: You got it, boss.

Paraducks [1.11][edit]

Darkwing: Need I remind you about the time with the peanut butter, the floor wax, and my VCR?
Gosalyn: That was an accident!

Easy Come, Easy Grows [1.12][edit]

[Drake fingers the money and begins to laugh crazily]
Launchpad: Gee, do you think something's wrong with him?
Gosalyn: Nothing a good exorcism wouldn't fix...

Bushroot: [as a root] No wonder they say money is the root of all evil.

A Revolution in Home Appliances [1.13][edit]

Trading Faces [1.14][edit]

Darkwing (in Gosalyn's body): I may be a size two petite, but I can still be a crime fighter!

[A policeman pulls Darkwing (in Gosalyn's body) over for driving the Ratcatcher.]
Policeman: Just how old are you?
Darkwing: [sheepishly] Old enough to know better?

Gosalyn: [in Drake's body] When will you two show a little responsibility? You're both grounded for life and your allowance is suspended until further notice! Fun, huh, Dad? Just like the way you yell at me.
Darkwing: [in Gosalyn's body] I never yell at you like that. [sees car on stairs and gasps] YOU'RE GROUNDED FOR LIFE AND YOUR ALLOWANCE IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER--Yow!

Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlatan [1.15][edit]

Gosalyn: Oh, great, Dad, you saved the world from a movie!

Darkwing: The city's on fire! It's the blaze of the century! Call the fire department! Call the police! Call my insurance company!
Launchpad: How about a brownie, DW?

Bearskin Thug [1.17][edit]

Tank: (growls) I hear I have you to thank for this trip!

Gosalyn: You'll never get away with this, Steelbeak!

Darkwing Duck: I am the terror that flaps in the night!
Steelbeak: Oh, no. Not here.
Darkwing Duck: I am the blister that bursts in your boot!
FOWL Eggmen: Ewww!
Darkwing Duck: I am Darkwing Duck!
Steelbeak: Man, I can't get away from you. What are you, a franchise? Take him down!

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night, stand back, he'll might get some blood on ya, I am the single career man all women want to date, I am-- ow! [surprised] Quackerjack?!?
Quackerjack: No, I'm Quackerjack! You're Darkwing Duck.

Stegmutt: Hot dogs, get your hot dogs!
Random Citizens: Aahh! A dinosaur!
Stegmutt: Maybe burgers would sell better.

[Darkwing is fighting Liquidator and Bushroot]
Stegmutt: Oh, Darkwing, are you busy?
Darkwing: Busy? No, no. I'm just here with Bushroot and Liquidator, the most dangerous villans ever, and we're playing 'Let's Pretend'!
Stegmutt: Oh boy! I love 'Let's Pretend'!
Liquidator: Yeah! Let's pretend! Let's pretend he's on fire!
Bushroot: Yeah! Put out the Darkwing! Put out the Darkwing!
Darkwing: Nice try, Greensleeves--
Stegmutt: [grabs Darkwing and starts smacking him against the ground] Put out the Darkwing! Put out the Darkwing!
Liquidator: 4 out of 5 dentists agree that it's time for us to get out of here!

[A giant beanstalk falls on Darkwing]]
Darkwing: [from beneath it] This is the second most painful moment of my life.
Stegmutt: What was the first most painful?
Darkwing: "Put out the Darkwing, put out the Darkwing!"

Just Us Justice Ducks (Part 2) [1.21][edit]

Stegmutt: Ooh, you're a villian!
Quackerjack: Ooh, you're a genius.

Megavolt: Out of my way, you weed!
Bushroot: Who are you calling a weed, Plughead?
Megavolt: You... dandelion!
Bushroot: I'll put you on a socket!

Darkwing: [in an old lady's voice] Flowers for Negaduck.
Negaduck: I hate flowers.
Darkwing: Did I say flowers? I meant skulls! [Negs licks his lips in delight] Skulls for Negaduck!
Negaduck: I'll be right there. This would been good.
Darkwing: Did I say skulls? I meant...ANVIL! [slingshots massive anvil through door, into Negaduck] Awww. I dented my anvil.

Gosalyn: You got bitten by a radioactive spider as big as me and you didn't even stop to put disinfectant on it?! No fair! You woulda had me in the emergency room faster than you can say rabies!

Darkwing: I am... ARACHNODUCK! [wiggles eyebrows] You heard right. Arachno. Duck.

Darkwing: [to his sixth arm] Number Six!!!

Darkwing: Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night. I am the papercut that ruins your morning. [appears, with Gosalyn and Honker next to him] I am--
Secretary: Lemme guess, you're Daycare Duck.
Darkwing: [whispers] Gosalyn, Honker, I told you NEVER follow me to work!
Gosalyn: There was nothing good on TV.
Darkwing: [pushing them aside] Heh, heh. Just impressionable rollerskaters I rescued from a burning... sidewalk.

Gosalyn: [shakes Stegmutt's hand] Gosalyn Mallard, martian hunter, freelance.

[Stegmutt, carrying a giant stolen electromagnet, barely comes to a stop in front of a red light]
Stegmutt: Phew, I almost broke the law!

Gosalyn: Dad, are you okay? What are you doing?
Drake: The judge wants to reform Tuskernini, so I'm going to reform him...[pulls lever]...into a pancake. [piano falls on bed]
Gosalyn: Oh, so we can adopt you after the judge throws you in prison! Unless of course he gives you the chair.
Drake: ...maybe we should wait 'til he tries something. After all, I've got him right under my bill where I can keep my eye on him. He thinks I'm just some dimwitted fool--Ha!--but as Drake Mallard, I've got the perfect cover!
[A wrecking ball crashes him through the door.]
Drake: [slurring] By the way, I booby-trapped the door.

Darkwing: Howdy yourself, you pony pilferer! Now cease and desist at once, or you'll be really, really sorry.
Megavolt: I'm already sorry. Sorry I won't be around to see you go... SPLAT!
Darkwing: Splat?

Life, the Negaverse, and Everything [1.35][edit]

Bushroot: We don't have a secret hideout! Why can't we go to your secret hideout?
Negaduck: Bushroot, if I let you go to my secret hideout, it wouldn't be a SECRET hideout anymore!

Drake: Quick, LP, create a diversion!
Launchpad: How about dying from exhaustion?
Drake: No, that's too subtle...

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the cholesterol that clogs your arteries! I am Darkwing Duck!

Darkwing: Great. I leave for five minutes, and Gosalyn's rewired the whole house!

Megavolt: Let's get luminous!

Megavolt, Bushroot, Liquidator, and Quackerjack: We are the terrors the flap in the night! We are the soap that's cleaning up this town! We are... Darkwing's Ducks!

Binky: Now, Honker, dear... you run along and do some life-altering damage to those nice men who hurt Mommy.

Dry Hard [1.36][edit]

Launchpad: DW? DW?
Liquidator's Girls: [singing] Darkwing Duck!
Darkwing: Never mind of seafood, old pal! You've almost splooshed the bad guy!

[Darkwing and Launchpad are trying to break their feet out of cement]
Darkwing: On my command... I hope this doesn't hurt... JUMP!
[Darkwing and Launchpad jump off a building]
Darkwing: [through teeth] It hurt.

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night!
Liquidator: Oh no.
Darkwing: I am the soap scum that lines your bathtub! I am--

Bushroot: Hey! Easy on the foliage, kid!
Mother: AAAAH! A plant monster!
Bushroot: Where?!

Bushroot: Christmas. Bah Grub-bug.

Darkwing: (Putting lights on the Christmas tree) Let's get... decorative.

Darkwing: Gosalyn, I've told you before: it's a Christmas tradition to open your presents on Christmas morning.
Gosalyn: Oh no. Please don't make me wait that long. I'll never make it! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!
Darkwing: It's tomorrow morning.

Mother: (shrieks and points at Bushroot) It's a PLANT MONSTER!
Bushroot: Where? Where? Where?

Citizen: Someone shtole my fruitcake!
Darkwing: Hmm... Who would shteal fruitcake?
Launchpad: I wish I knew. I can never get rid of the stuff!

[Darkwing gets run over by Bushroot and his tree-truck.]

[Bushroot uses Christmas Trees to attack Darkwing.]
Bushroot: Calling all trees: Deck the duck... WITH EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT!

Darkwing: Oh really? That's sure gonna surprise the heck out of Mom and Dad!

Dead Duck [1.47][edit]

Darkwing: Oh, what a day. I'm dead on my feet.
[Enter Launchpad and Gosalyn, crying].
Darkwing: Launchpad, Gosalyn, what's wrong? Oh, what's the matter, sweetheart? Bad grades, sad movie, Launchpad cooked dinner?
Launchpad: Oh, D.W.!
Darkwing: Yes, yes, you called?
Launchpad: How will we ever get along without him?
Darkwing: Without who? What are you talking about?
Gosalyn: Oh, Launchpad...I can't believe he's...gone!
Darkwing: Gosalyn, honey, I'm right here, in the pink! Well, light pink, anyway.
Launchpad: It's like I can almost still hear him!
Darkwing: Almost! If I yell any louder, I'll rupture something!

Darkwing: Something's happened to me. I don't know what, but I need your help.
Launchpad: You don't need help, D.W.; you need an undertaker!

Quack of Ages [1.51][edit]

Binketh: Hello, strangers! From whence do you hail?
Darkwing: What would you say if I told you we were from 700 years in the future?
Binketh: I would say you were an evil warlock and should be burned at the stake.
Darkwing: [laughs nervously] We're from Sweden.

Darkwing: Men, a sword!
[Darkwing gets buried in a pile of swords]
Darkwing: [wheezes] Men, a tourniquet!

Time and Punishment [1.52][edit]

Megavolt: I'll make him sizzle like spit on a griddle!
Quackerjack: Ooh! Aren't we sounding folksy.

Gosalyn: Darkwarrior?
Darkwing: Oh, great, gone five minutes and my own daughter forgets my name. Just like she forgot she was supposed to stay in the Ratcatcher.
Gosalyn: [looks down, happily] Launchpad!
Darkwing: Don't change the subject. I have had it with you, young lady. You are grounded for a month.
Gosalyn: No problem, Dad. That kind of justice I can handle. [hugs him]
Darkwing: Now don't argue with me. I--[looks slightly confused, hugs Gosalyn back]

Stressed to Kill [1.53][edit]

Megavolt: Isn't the fire engine supposed to spray water?
Quackerjack: Of course not! Then it would be a water engine!

[Quackerjack and Megavolt are panicking as the city burns around them. Darkwing arrives.]
Quackerjack: Oh, it's Darkwing Duck!
Megavolt: We're saved!
Quackerjack: Oh, quick, do something!
Darkwing: No problemo.
Quackerjack and Megavolt: Yay! Hooray!
Darkwing: After all, if there's one thing a fire's good for...[pulls cape away to reveal wienies in his hand] it's toasting Krazy Kevin's Classic Cocktail Wienies. [puts on headphones and toasts wienies over fire] You guys should try this, really. You'll love them. Mmm, mmm, mmm!

Inside Binkie's Brain [1.55][edit]

Megavolt: [To lightbulbs he's just stolen] There! Run! Be free! Frolic in the wilderness!

Darkwing: Do you have any idea what you just did?!
Binkie: No need to thank me!
Darkwing: Thank you?!
Binkie: You're welcome!

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the burnt-out bulb you cannot reach! I am Darkwing Duck!

Megavolt: That lady in the cape almost killed us! You're supposed to protect the city from people like that!
Darkwing: I know, I know, I'm sorry! I-- I tried to stop her before, but she... wait a minute, you're the villain! I'm not supposed to apologize to YOU! I'm supposed to SMASH you!

Darkwing: Unfortunately, the only one about to get hurt was someone very important to me: Me.

Megavolt: That's the trouble with being a villain. The heroes always have to win!

The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain [1.56][edit]

Darkwing: There are a thousand stories in the city of St. Canard. Some are mundane, some exotic, some stranger than others. But one thing remains the same: I'm in all the good ones.

Quackerjack: It's just that sort of talk that drove me out of the toy business and into the loony bin!

Paddywack: You really are quite mad, aren't you? I like that in a clown.

Quackerjack: You've got to save me! If I stay here any longer, I'll go crazy!
Darkwing: 'Go'?
Quackerjack: Well, you wouldn't hold a little thing like sanity against a guy, would ya? Besides, if we're going to get out of here, we're going to have to team up.
Darkwing: Team up with you? That's a laugh!
Paddywack: [offscreen] MWAHAHAHAHA!
Quackerjack: No, that's a laugh.

Darkwing: Quackerjack... let's get ridiculous!

Mr. Banana Brain: Say, fellas, maybe this is part where we show him love and kindness, and he vows to mend his evil ways.
Darkwing and Quackerjack: Eh... naaah!

Slime Okay, You're Okay [1.57][edit]

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the spinach that sticks to your teeth! I am DARKWING-- Duck-and-where-did-everyone-go?
Launchpad: Maybe you need to work on a shorter intro, DW.

Gosalyn: [as a slime monster] I am the slime that slurps in the night! I am the wad of gum that sticks to the heel of crime! I am Yucky Duck!
[She looks around; the enemy is gone.]
Gosalyn: I think I need a shorter intro.

Darkwing: Later, Launchpad, later. For now... let's get slimy!

Whirled History [1.58][edit]

Darkwing (as Christopher Columbus): [repeated line] I claim this India in the name of Spain!

Darkwing (as Leif Erickson): Not so fast, mister! I was here first, and it's America, not India!
Darkwing (as Christopher Columbus): Oh yeah? Then why are there Indians here?

Binky (as an Indian): Look, dear, we're being discovered!

Megavolt: It would take something pretty big to save you now!
[Megavolt gets crushed by Columbus's ship]
Megavolt: [weakly] I guess that's big enough...

Darkwing (as Neil Armstrong): That's one small step for a man, one... [notices Megavolt crushed under his rocket] ...bad day for that guy.

U.F.Foe [1.59][edit]

Gosalyn: This is the desert. A cruel oven where the sand is the baking dish and mystery is the casserole.

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the headache in the criminal mind! I am Darkwing's brain!

Darkwing: Okay, that's it! Time for a little mind over mallard!

A Star is Scorned [1.60][edit]

Gosalyn: They killed her friends and stole her Dad's soul. This time... it's personal. Gosalyn Mallard, Zombie Slayer!

Bushroot: I am the ivy that clogs your pipes! I am the taproot that... clogs your pipes! I am Bushroot!

Bushroot: All right! Let's... get.... Deciduous!

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the slug that slimes your begonias! I am-- Herb Muddlefoot cast as a construction worker?
Herb: No, actually that's my part.

Thaddeus Rockwell: Not only talented, but he tests through the roof! Right, Crosby?
Crosby: Yes sir! Bushroot's cuddliness index is off the charts!

Darkwing: [on screen] I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the editor that leaves you on the cutting room floor!
Thaddeus Rockwell: Crosby! Just what's going on here?
Crosby: I-- I-- I don't know, sir!
Bushroot: Gee, I thought you woulda cut out this part.
Darkwing: [on screen] I am the clock cleaner who will ring your chimes! I am Darkwiiiing Duck!

The Quiverwing Quack [1.61][edit]

Negaduck: So, St. Canard has a new favourite hero, eh? And a little girl, at that! The perfect target for public enemy number one...

Negaduck: What's the big deal? St. Canard always wanted a tourist attraction. I think the leaning tower of pizza is perfect.

Negaduck: What is this?! Did I cross a black cat today? I can't waste one sappy hero?!

Gosalyn: [crying] You never treated me like a hero! You just treat me like your baby girl! [storms out of the room]
Darkwing: [quietly] Because you are...

Negaduck: Too late, Darkwing. You can't save both the girl and the city.
Darkwing: Au contraire, mon frere! That's just what heroes do best.

Jail Bird [1.62][edit]

Bushroot: Oh, well. A plant's gotta do what a plant's gotta do!

Darkwing: My plan, Launchpad, is simple -- not to mention incredibly brilliant, now that I mention it.

Bushroot: Quackerjack's giving me the creeps. Someone's got to tell him prison's not supposed to be fun.

Liquidator: [on Quackerjack] "Let the cleansing power of prison life wipe away your cares... and your sanity!

Megavolt: Look at him. He's nuts. He's out of his tree, completely insane! [pulls out a lightbulb] Isn't he, my wittle bubbwy-wubbwy?

Negaduck: Ah. How sweet. A beautiful dove, the symbol of peace. Perhaps I should feed it...TO A CAT!

Bushroot: He's so arrogant!
Liquidator: So 100% egotistical!
Megavolt: So pretentious!
Quackerjack: So... oooh.. squiggly!
All four: He must be... Darkwing Duck!

Megavolt: Zap him!
Bushroot: Mulch him!
Liquidator: Slice him and dice him!
Quakerjack: Tickle him to death! Hahahaha!

Bushroot: Wait a second! This can't be Darkwing Duck! If it were Darkwing Duck he would've called me mean names like 'Bush-Brain' and 'Melon-Head'!
Megavolt: I think Bush-Brain is right!
Quackerjack: Yeah, good thinking, Melon-Head!

Negaduck: An impregnable stronghold, eh? Heh. I love a challenge. Negaduck can overcome any security system, no matter how formidable! [He shoots a grappling hook up to the prison] Negaduck crushes all obstacles! [He pulls on the rope; a huge stone falls down on him] ...or vice-versa.

Liquidator: You know, 4 out of 5 dentists recommend that you never bug a supervillain!

Megavolt: If I don't do something really destructive soon, I'll go nuts!

Negaduck: I AM MEGA-NEGADUCK! [laughs maniacally]

Liquidator: [depowered by Negaduck] Tired of being powerless? Need professional help? Caaaall Darkwing Duck!

Darkwing: Gentlemen... let's get cooperative!

Dirtysomething [1.63][edit]

Darkwing: Freeze, evildoers! Or I will stop you with my-- my-- [realizes he doesn't have his gas gun] hand.

[Darkwing and Launchpad's feet are stuck to a conveyor belt and they are headed toward a trash compactor]
Launchpad: [crying] I guess this is the end, DW... I don't know what to say!
Darkwing: [sees a spatula] A Spatula!
Launchpad: [sobs and hugs Darkwing] Aspatula to you too, old buddy!

Kung Fooled [1.64][edit]

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the special news bulletin that interrupts your favourite show! I am Darkwiiing--
Gosalyn: Keen gear! A real super-villain; let's squish him!

Darkwing: Once again, the dauntless Darkwing Duck deftly defeats the demon's devious, uh...
Gosalyn: [mutters aside to him] Deviltry.
Darkwing: ...deviltry.

Darkwing: Okay, okay, so he didn't respect me. So I only started fighting crime in a vain, pitiful attempt to win his approval. So what? ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT?
Gosalyn: Oh golly gosh nooooo, Dad
Darkwing: Of course not! And I'm gonna make him respect me if I have to break every bone in my body!

Goose Lee: I have read of your adventures. I must say, you have turned out to be Master Lee's greatest... what is the word?
Darkwing: [eagerly] Pupil, disciple, hope for the future?
Goose Lee: Disappointment.

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night. I am the bubblegum that sticks in your hair! I am Darkwing Duck! [The dragon flips him up into the air.] Perhaps I overdid the terror thing.

Gosalyn: Yeah, right, Dad. Who'd wanna sit and watch you for half an hour?

Bad Luck Duck [1.65][edit]

Darkwing: Where's the doctor?
Launchpad: [sees voodoo guy behind DW] Witch Doctor!
Darkwing: I don't care, any doctor!

Darkwing: I am the terror that-- [crashing and coughing in the smoke] all right, who put the banana peel there?

Darkwing: I can't let Negaduck take over the world! After all, I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the itch you cannot reach! I AM Darkwing Duck!

Negaduck: Today, St. Canard -- tomorrow, the world! I always wanted to say that.

Season 2[edit]

That Sinking Feeling [2.01][edit]

Darkwing: The city of St. Canard is home to a thousand criminals, but not one dares make a move. For in this city is a shadowy guardian, who hunts them like a phantom in the darkness. I am that guardian. I am the terror that flaps in the night; I am the winged scourage that pecks at your nightmares; I am Darkwing Duck!

Moliarty: Darkwing Duck? Sounds like something I should try with egg rolls.

Moliarty: Say, I don't believe I've made the obligatory explanation of my plan!
Darkwing: Oh, great. Now he wants to torture us.

Darkwing: The daring Darkwing Duck defies death yet again and defeats the despicable denizens of darkness!

Film Flam [2.02][edit]

NegaDuck [2.03][edit]

NegaDuck: I am the most fiendish terror that flaps in the darkest night! I am the skunk that pollutes your air! I... am... NEGADUCK!

Posiduck: Virtue is its own reward!
Negaduck: Oh, yeah? Well, I say: don't get mad, get EVEN!

Fungus Amongus [2.04][edit]

Slaves to Fashion [2.05][edit]

Binkie: Oh, but bikes are so boyish! Don't you think Gosalyn should have more, well, feminine things? Have I ever told you that, dear?
Drake: [muttering] Only every time you see me.

Herb: Hey! Nice costume, there, Drake! Of course, nobody's gonna confuse you with the real Darkwing Duck!
Darkwing: Uh, you don't think there's any resemblance, Herb?
Herb: [laughs] No offence, there, guy, but Darkwing Duck is much taller! He's my best friend, I seen him once in person.

Something Fishy [2.06][edit]

Darkwing: Just as I suspected: the eels operate on alternating current!

Tiff of the Titans [2.07][edit]

Gizmoduck: Attention FOWL Agents! Come up with your hands up, or I, Gizmoduck, shall give you a sound thrashing!

Gizmoduck: Well, if you're not a crook, how come you're wearing a mask?
Darkwing: Hey, hey. Let's not get personal, helmet-head!
Gizmoduck: It came with the outfit!

Calm A Chameleon [2.08][edit]

Darkwing: The only way to really be happy is to be who you are, and nobody else.
Gosalyn: This from a man in a cape and mask.
Darkwing: Huh? Oh, oh I have to do this. For, uh, professional reasons. It's not like I'm maladjusted or anything; can't be that. Can it?

Battle of the Brainteasers [2.09][edit]

Monsters R Us [3.01][edit]

Darkwing (to Morgana's father): You should let your daughter choose her own company. She has impeccable taste.
Moloculo Macawber: What she needs is a nice ghoulish boy! Only then will she find true happiness.
Darkwing: She doesn't WANT happiness, she wants ME! ...that didn't... sound quite right.

Morgana: Oooh! I'll convince them that violence isn't the way if I have to kill them!

Fraudcast News [3.09][edit]

The Bugmaster: [on TV] I've been watching TV recently, and I'm sick of this second-rate jerk, Darkwing Duck.
Drake: [to TV] Hey, hey hey hey! I'm a first-rate jerk!

Gosalyn: Wait a minute, there's something strange about this 'Bugmaster'.
Drake: Yeah: she's in a bug costume, threatening a cockroach. I'd call that strange.

Darkwing: Well, Bianc, it's like I always say: you've got to break a few pennies to save an omelet. ...Well, I say something like that. Anyway, c'mon, Launchpad!

Darkwing: Oh, great. Another pun-obsessed super-villain.

Drake: Oh, nice shot of me there! Good composition. You know, this looks great! The only thing that could make it better would be if I could actually catch the crook!

Launchpad: Hmm. I wonder how much it costs to have my eyes trained?

Darkwing: If you are angling for a bigger allowance this is not the way to go!

Darkwing: What did I ever do to Gosalyn to deserve this?
Launchpad: Well, once you grounded her until her senior year of college.
Darkwing: Yeah...
Launchpad: And another time you made her eat beets even though you know she hates them.
Darkwing: Yeah, but I--
Launchpad: Oh, and then another time you--
Darkwing: I get the idea! Thank you!

Clash Reunion [3.10][edit]

Megavolt: I am... MEGAWATT!
The Band: Hey! That's our name, man!
Megavolt: Oh, sorry. Uh, in that case... I am... MegaVOLT!

Megavolt: Aha! All is lost! No one can save you now! You're chemistry!
Students: Huh?
Megavolt: No, not chemistry. Math! Is that-- No, uh-- History! That's it. You're history!

Megavolt: All right, Darkwing! You may be tough, but I'm not! ...or... something.

Launchpad: Hey DW, try one of these horse do-overs! They're pretty good!

Megavolt: At last, at last I'll be rid of those meddling kids and their nosy dog! Whoa, wrong cartoon.

Preena Lott: Yeah, I guess we owe you an apology, Drake. G'wan, g'wan, Ham, apologize!
Ham String: Aw, gee, Drake, uh, sorry for acting like a chowder head.
Darkwing: Aww, Ham... you weren't acting.

Ham String: You just missed Darkwing Duck, man!
Drake: 'Darkwing Duckman'? What is this 'Darkwing Duckman'?

Mutancy on the Bouncy [3.11][edit]

Darkwing: Stand still and I'll thrash you some more!
The Rubber Chicken: I'd better go... if you thrash me any more you're gonna end up in a hospital!

Darkwing: Think I can't do it, eh? No faith in my abilities, eh? Well ha! And double ha! And ha some more!

Gosalyn: And so, Darkwing Duck, St. Canard's mighty masked vain pig-headed loud-mouthed snooty egomaniacal waffle-brained mallard, paid a little visit to Swenlin Swine.

Launchpad: DW! He's going into Bob's World of Breakable Antiques!

Cement-Head: Oh well, now that you've found me out, I guess I'll just have to crush you like bugs. C'est la vie.
Launchpad: ...la vie?

Darkwing: Y'know, you did pretty good. For a mutant.
The Rubber Chicken: And you did pretty good for a vain pig-headed loud-mouthed snooty egomaniacal waffle-brain!
Darkwing: Hey! I'm not vain.

Malice's Restaurant [3.12][edit]

Gosalyn: I can take care of myself!
Darkwing:Take care of yourself? You can't even take care of your room!
Gosalyn: That's a cheap shot!

Darkwing: It always comes down to this, Launchpad. Me, you, a villain craving my destruction, and an abandoned warehouse.

Theme Song[edit]

  • Main Singer: Daring duck of mystery,

    But bad guys are out of luck
    'Cause here comes...
    Female Chorus: Darkwing Duck!
