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.
- I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the winged scourge that pecks at your nightmares! I AM DARKWING DUCK!
- Let's Get Dangerous!
Darkly Dawns the Duck, Part 1 [1.01]
- 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]
- 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]
- 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]
- 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]
- 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: I can't marry a potato! She's a tuber, and I'm a shrub! Well, they say opposites attract...
- 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.
- Duane: Red taters you can reason with, but Russets... ugh, they's just plain mean!
- Darkwing: There are no vampire potatoes. Scientists who turn themselves into plants, yes, but vampire potatoes? That's ridiculous!
- Bushroot: You have stolen the heart of the woman I love! I'm not gonna rescue you, I'm gonna mow you down!
- 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]
- Darkwing: Forget it, Gosalyn, you're too young to explode.
Dirty Money [1.07]
- 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]
- 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]
- 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...
- Megavolt: Over my dead batteries! Eat amperes, duck!
- Megavolt: Ha! They call me mad! They call me insane! They're right. But I'M running things now!
- Megavolt: Fools left me no choice. Just because I missed paying a power bill or two, they threatened to shut me off... in the middle of the greatest scheme of my career!
- Megavolt: [talking to a lightbulb] Oh, my sweet darling. You're the ampere of my eye!
- 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"?
- Darkwing: Never send a bunny to do a duck's job.
Water Way to Go [1.10]
- 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.
- 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]
- [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]
Trading Faces [1.14]
- Darkwing: If you haven't noticed, I happen to be WORKING, here.
- Gosalyn: Really? Can I help?
- Darkwing: No, thank you; I'd rather the equipment remain in one piece.
- Darkwing: [in Gosalyn's body] Is everyone okay?
- Gosalyn: [in Drake's body] That was epic! Let's do it again!
- Honker: [in Launchpad's body] I'm okay…sort of.
- Launchpad: [in Honker's body] Launchpad McQuack all present and accounted for. [coughs] I think. Everything's kind of fuzzy.
- Darkwing/Gosalyn: Gosalyn, where are you?
- Gosalyn/Drake: Here, Dad.
- Darkwing/Gosalyn: Gosalyn?
- Gosalyn/Drake: Dad?
- [Darkwing and Gosalyn both scream horrifyingly at each after they switched bodies, and so does Launchpad and Honker]
- Darkwing/Gosalyn: Something must've gone wrong when I bashed that button. Instead of transferring information, I transferred us! [gasps] Trapped in a child's body. How can I battle criminals? Bad guys are really going to take me seriously now.
- Darkwing/Gosalyn: Bottom line, babes, I may be a size two petite, but I'm still me!
- Honker/Launchpad: But Gosalyn, we can't go to the movies. Your dad said--
- Gosalyn/Drake: Hey, since when does a kid tell an adult what to do?
- Honker/Launchpad: But we're not really adults, we just look like adults.
- Gosalyn/Drake: Same difference. Trust me.
- Honker/Launchpad: B-but you don't know how to drive.
- Gosalyn/Drake: How hard can it be? Adults do it.
- [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/Drake: When are you two gonna 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/Gosalyn: 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!
- Steelbeak: OK, listen up. Today's lesson is "How to Cook Up a Crisis." First, take one merrily spinning planet. Add one Iggy super rocket to bring it to a stop. Chill one half 'til frozen, while frying the other half like a burger. Bon appètit! [laughs] Oh, by the way, if this little bit of epicurean delight is not to your particular taste, just have the world governments cough up 100 trillion smackeroos, and we'll send you the chicken salad instead.
- Steelbeak: Boy oh boy, did you kids pick the wrong fan club. I gotta tell you, dressing up like Darkwing Doofus is not gonna score you any points around here.
- Steelbeak: What is it with these world leaders, huh? Don't they keep an extra trillion around anymore?
- J. Gander Hooter: High Command must surely realize that 100 trillion dollars is difficult to come by.
- Steelbeak: Hey, read my beak. Tell 'em to raise some taxes. Heh-heh. [to camera] Like they need an excuse, right?
Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlatan [1.15]
- Gosalyn: Oh, great, Dad, you saved the world from a movie!
Can't Bayou Love [1.16]
- 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]
- Darkwing Duck: I am the terror that flaps in the night!
- Steelbeak: Oh, no. Not here.
- Darkwing Duck: I am the pustulant 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!
You Sweat Your Life [1.18]
Days of Blunder [1.19]
- Darkwing: [gasps] The rubber chicken!
- Darkwing: No test can tell you how to live your life! A man like you, a man like me, we boldly go, and daringly do! Our heads are in the clouds, and our eyes are on the stars! Fill up your eyes with those stars, man! With every fill-up you get a free sports bike. Your future's out there, I tell ya! It's callin' to ya! And the future doesn't leave recorded messages by the way; you've got to BE THERE when she rings!
Just Us Justice Ducks (Part 1) [1.20]
- Darkwing: All set for our big night out, Morgana? Let's get... amorous.
- Gosalyn: Darkwing Duck. Crime fighter, bad Elvis impersonator.
- Megavolt: I love the smell of voltage in the evening!
- Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night--stand back, you might get some blood on ya--I am the single career man all women want to date, I am-- ouch! [surprised] Quackerjack?!?
- Quackerjack: No, I'm Quackerjack! You are Darkwing Duck.
- Megavolt: That's right! Prepare to meet thy doom at the hands of the... [throws arm around Quackerjack] the TWO most dangerous criminals ever! Together!
- Darkwing: [transformed by Morgana] Ha! I'm back! It'll take more than two treacherous transgressors to taint the track record of Darkwiiiiing... Yak?!
- Liquidator: Serving the public getting you down? Tired of staring at the station house walls? Then engage in life-threatening combat with Bushroot and The Liquidator!
- Stegmutt: Yo, hot dogs, get your hot dogs!
- Random Citizens: Aahh! A dinosaur!
- Stegmutt: Maybe burgers would sell better.
- Liquidator: Loved and adored for years in Europe! Now available in our own country! Beanstalk!
- Darkwing: Fe fi fo fumǃ I am the terror that flaps in the nightǃ I am-- [a lightpost collapses on his head] ...Stegmutt.
- Stegmutt: I thought I was Stegmuttǃ
- Liquidator: Just when you thought it was safe to commit crimes: a dinosaur!
- Bushroot: Oh, I hope he's not a plant-eater!
- [Darkwing is fighting Liquidator and Bushroot]
- Stegmutt: I got your change, Darkwing. I'm sorry, are you busy?
- Darkwing: Busy? No, no. I'm only standing here with Liquidator and Bushroot, the most dangerous criminals 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 surveyed say 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!"
- Liquidator: Is it Negaduck, or is it Darkwing Duck? SHUSH won't be able to tell the difference!
- Bushrootː What will you do if Darkwing Duck shows up?
- [There is the sound of guns being drawn; the foursome yelp and hit the ground as a massive hole is blown in the wall behind them]
- Negaduckː Something like that. But worse.
- J. Gander Hooterː Four of your very own archenemies have joined forces -- an unusual phenomenon, indeed.
- Darkwing: Four, eight, 326, ha! Numbers don't scare me. Once I catch up to those confounded criminals, their conniving conspiracy will be kaput.
- Launchpad: I'm sorry, DW. I know where I left my keys in here somewhere--
- J. Gander Hooter: Darkwing?
- Darkwing: Negaduck! So you're behind all of this!
- J. Gander Hooter: Who-what-eh... two Darkwings?!
- Darkwing and Negaduck: (in unison) Don't you believe it, J. Gander?! This fiend is my archnemesis, Negaduck! ...Oh no, you don't! You're the lecherous liar known as Negaduck! ...I beg to differ! You're the erroneous executor of evil known as Negaduck! ...OOOOH!! Would you cut that out?!
- Dr. Sarah Bellum: [cheerfully, bringing massive gun to bear] Well, I guess we'll just have to kill them both!
- J. Gander: Doctor Bellum!
- Dr. Bellum: Just kidding.
- Gosalyn: Stegmutt!
- Stegmutt: Gosalyn!
- Darkwing: Morgana?
- Morgana: Dark.
- Gizmoduck: Hi!
- Darkwing: Morgana, what are you doing here?
- Morgana: Aren't you glad to see me?
- Darkwing: Uh, well... I... yesss, technically...
- Morgana: Oh no. It's too dangerous. I'll leave.
- Neptunia: Are these yours?
- Gizmoduck: Good show! What do you think, Wingy?
- Darkwing: Ah--
- Gizmoduck: Three of us can attack from the front while the other two subversively infiltrate disguised as singing monks. Then, at the appointed hour, Morgana, Stegmutt, and I leap out of the cake, taking the villains by surprise while the others contact the president and get network clearance for our exclusive heroic TV interview with Tom Lockjaw!
- Tom Lockjaw: Hi!
- Negaduckː At the bridge, I planted a tiny crumb of bread from our questionable room service. It should lead Darkwing Duck here right about... now.
- [He opens the door, tripping Darkwing as the latter enters]
- Darkwing: Aaah! [From the ground] You thought I'd never find you...!
- Negaduckː I see you found the crumb. I knew you wouldn't notice the enormous flag.

- Neptunia: Hey, Hal. What? What is it? Somebody fell into Devil's Gorge and has a compound fracture of the lower mandible? Well, it's not my fault I can't understand you. Maybe if you had a mouth.
- Liquidator: Triumph now with the Liquidator!
- Bushroot: [on Morgana] Some witch. Doesn't do a bad daisy, though.
- Stegmutt: No, no, no, no, no, I'm not a dinosaur! This is my real nose and glasses, honest!

- Megavolt: Eat volts, transistor brain!
- Gizmoduck: My gizmos are akimbo!
- Gosalyn: Dad, you're OK!
- Darkwing: No, I'm dirt. I'm worse than dirt. I'm lower than low. I am not the terror that flaps in the night. [sobbing] I am the self-centered boob who hands over the city at the drop of a dime. I'm a gipnoid, a slug, a spud-motherin' jackanape.
- Launchpad: Aw, c'mon. You're not a slug!
- Megavolt: Out of my way, you weed!
- Bushroot: Who are you calling a weed, plughead?
- Megavolt: You, you dandelion!
- Bushroot: I'll plug your head in a socket!
- Negaduck: Oh, give me just a tiny break!

- Negaduck: I get... the loot.
- All: What!?! Why?
- Negaduck: Because I said.
- 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 had better be good....
- Darkwing: Did I say skulls? I meant...ANVIL! [slingshots massive anvil through door, into Negaduck] Awww. I dented my anvil. Yep yep yep, ah. The perfect disguise.
- Quackerjack: Well Negaduck can't take all the money, while we do all the work. [via Mr. Banana Brain] It's unfair!
- Megavolt: I like to fry his feathers.
- Bushroot: Hey! Why don't we?
- All: Let's kill Negaduck!
- Negaduck: You thought he was me? You were going to kill... ME!?!?!
- Megavolt: No! No! We know it was Darkwing!
- Bushroot: But we were just testing, see?
- Quackerjack: Uh. Did we already kill Darkwing Duck?
- Bushroot: Aah! The ghost of Darkwing Duck!
- Liquidator: He's back!
- Negaduck: Just... GET HIM NOW!
- Negaduck: Now it's time to say goodbye to all our company!
- Liquidator: AAAAAHHHH!!!!! Do not add water!

- 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]

- Drake: [irritatedly humming 'Rock-a-Bye Baby' while fluffing Tuskernini's pillow]
- 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.
Toys Czar Us [1.32]
- Darkwing: Not now, honey, Daddy's talking on Mr. Phone!

- Megavolt: Well, howdy, cowboy!
- 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?
- Gizmoduck: The new Gizmo-doll is defective. It has a screw loose.
- Darkwing: [aside to camera] And that surprises him?
- Gizmoduck: It's supposed to fly and say 'beware evildoers', but instead it wets and says 'mama' .
Life, the Negaverse, and Everything [1.35]
- 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!
- Darkwing: In the Negaverse, there's never been a Darkwing Duck to guard the city...[swallows] or a Drake Mallard to be a father. [hugs Negaverse-Gosalyn] For you, Gosalyn... I'll stay.
- Megavolt: Let's get luminous!
- Megavolt, Bushroot, Liquidator, and Quackerjack: We are the terrors that 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]
- Bud Flud: The problem is, bad tasting molecules that have been around since dinosaur days have worked their way to the regular water molecules of [clears his throat] most of my competitors. Ooh, I wouldn't wanna drink those! And with Bud Flud's Sparkling Crystal Pure Flud Water, I'll never have to.
- Launchpad: [About the heat wave] It's hotter than a monkey's uncle!
- Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the parking meter that expires while you shop! I am Darkwing Duck!
- Bud Flud: This is the ultimate form of advertising! Would you rather drink my pure mountain magic... or a big fat monkey brain?
- Darkwing: ...uh, all the better! Cases are so much easier when the bad guy offs himself like that.
- Liquidator's Mascots: [singing] He's wet and he's cool, he's really hip / he may be made of water but he's no drip!
- Liquidator: Are your muscles sore, tired, aching? Try Liquidator Brand Deep-heating Rub!
- Liquidator: Here in the sewers of St. Canard, we've taken a local crime fighter and surrounded him with a wall of boiling water!

Heavy Mental [1.37]
Disguise the Limit [1.38]
- Negaduck: (laughs evilly) That'll keep my goody-two-shoes look-a-like busy. Okay, maybe pretending to be Darkwing Duck is a rotten trick. But hey, I'm Negaduck, a rotten kinda guy!
- [On hearing there's a 1 million dollar reward for his capture]
- Darkwing: Impossible! That's ridiculous! ...I'm worth 10 million at least!
- Darkwing: Well, aside from sustaining massive internal injuries in a plane crash, and being chased by the army, the navy, and a troop of girl scouts, yeah, I'm, uh, just peachy.
- Darkwing: Uh oh.
- Citizens: [as Darkwing] I am the terror that flaps in the night!

- Drake: [Putting lights on the Christmas tree] Let's get... decorative.
- Drake: Gosalyn, I've told you before: it's a Christmas tradition to open your presents on Christmas morning.
- Gosalyn: Oh no. Please, please don't make me wait that long! I'll never make it! It's no use! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!
- Drake: It's tomorrow morning.
- Gosalyn: I am the terror that unwraps at night!
- Bushroot: And what do you want, little boy?
- Little Boy: I want a drum!
- Bushroot: Good, because I want you to beat it!
- Citizen: My fruitcake! Help! Someone stole my fruitcake!
- Drake: Hmm... Who would steal fruitcake?
- Launchpad: I wish I knew. I can never get rid of the stuff!
- Darkwing: Something tells me that some sinister force is sapping the season's spirit!
- Bushroot: [to camera] I'm really not sinister... just misunderstood.
- Darkwing: Aha! Bushroot! I should've known that you were really at the root of this riotous ruckus!
- Bushroot: Everyone's gotta celebrate their own way.

The Incredible Bulk [1.45]
My Valentine Ghoul [1.46]
- Morgana: Absolutely not! Never! Not in a million years! [Eek & Squeak plead] Forget it. I'd rather give up my 'Hex of the Month' Club than ever talk to Darkwing again! [door bell rings] Oh dear, that might be him now! How do I look? Am I pale enough? Are my cobwebs straight?
- Morgana: This carnival's nothing but a bunch of freaks, mutants and misfits. [sighs happily] Just like my last family reunion.
- Gosalyn: [shoving away a skeleton that tries to kiss her] Get a life!
- Negaduck: I feel awful, stooping to such petty crimes. But you just can’t imagine how expensive a thermonuclear warhead is these days!
- Morgana: Negaduck, my little honeywumpus!
- Darkwing: Hey! I'm supposed to be your little honeywumpus!
- Morgana: Care for a jawbreaker, sweetums?
- Negaduck: Uh... why, thank you.
- Morgana: One broken jaw, coming up!
Dead Duck [1.47]
- Darkwing: [entering an anvil factory] Why couldn't it be a pillow factory, just this once?
- Launchpad: Wait a second. If I pretend to be a ghost, that will work. I'll give it a try.
- Darkwing: Oh, what a day. I'm dead on my feet.
- [Enter Launchpad moaning as a ghost 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.! It worked.
- Darkwing: Yes, yes, you called?
- Launchpad: Now for the question, If I sounded like a ghost, 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!
- Gosalyn: Dad, you're alive! Oh, I'm so glad to have you back.
- 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!
- Darkwing: Let's get one thing straight. I am not dead!
- Gosalyn: But Dad, if you're not dead, what are you?
- Darkwing: No ad-libbing!
A Duck by Any Other Name [1.48]
- Launchpad: [Posing as Darkwing] Surrender, you evildoing bad guys, or face the doom of Darkwing Duck!
- Launchpad: [Posing as Darkwing] Uh, I am the tenor that sings in the night! I am the, uh, uh, road salt that rots the underside of your car!
Let's Get Respectable [1.49]
- Darkwing: No one's sure just why I flap. Half the police force think I'm a crook, and the other half hate my hat!
In Like Blunt [1.50]
- Blunt: The sand came from here, in the Salad Sea.
- Darkwing: There must be a thousand islands there!
- Darkwing: [dismayed] He drew on my map.

Quack of Ages [1.51]
- Darkwing: The jig is up, you jaded, jug-headed jack-in-the-box!
- 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: I am the mighty Darkwing Duck, and I pity the poor fool who stands in my way!
- Darkwing: Men, a sword!
- [Darkwing gets buried in a pile of swords]
- Darkwing: [wheezes] Men, a tourniquet!
Time and Punishment [1.52]
- Megavolt: Oh, like we didn't know that. Let me out! I'll make him sizzle like spit on a griddle!
- Quackerjack: Ooh! Aren't we sounding folksy.
- Megavolt: But traveling through time can put a hole in the space time continuum, wreak havoc in history and alternatively change the past, present, AND FUTURE FOREVER!!! Actually, it sounds kinda fun!
- Darkwarrior Duck: I am the terror that hunts in the night! I am the jackal that gnaws at your bones! [he fires near the 'perpetrator' and singsongs] I'm not finished. [normal again] I am... Darkwarrior Duck!
- Gosalyn: I'm not afraid of your old gas gun!
- Darkwarrior Duck: Gas gun!? I haven't used a gas gun in years!
- 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]
- Launchpad: Stress Busters says "You should accept the things you cannot change." ....Or is that "Change the things you can't accept"?
- Megavolt: [repeated line] Don't call me "Sparky"!
- 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!
- [Megavolt and Quackerjack cry.]
- Darkwing: [suddenly being brought back to his senses] Who what when where and sometimes why?
The Darkwing Squad [1.54]
- The Darkwing Squad: We are the team that flaps in the night! We are the beaters that scramble your eggmen! We are--

- 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]
- 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!

- Darkwing and Quackerjack: Eh... naaah!
Slime Okay, You're Okay [1.57]
- 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?

- [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]
- 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.
- 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!

- 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?

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

The Quiverwing Quack [1.61]
- Darkwing Duck: It's no use, Negaduck! You may have trapped the whole entire police department in lime jello, but you didn't trap me!
- Negaduck: [sarcastically] Ooh, Darkwing Duck! I'm so scared!
- Darkwing Duck: Oh, yeah? Well, you should be! [Negaduck throws the bomb at Darkwing] Eep! [bomb explodes]
- Negaduck: Ha! I'm more afraid of early hair loss!
- 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]
- 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.

[to the lightbulb he's holding] What? What's that you say? Wear the jumpsuit, battery, gloves, and helmet? [Kisses bulb] Brilliant! Oh what, would I do without you? [Laughs] Ah, high school. I remember those golden days, days of constant degredation and torment with nary a moment's rest from the endless stream of abuse. Oh those were the days.

- Elmo Sputterspark: At last, I have harnessed the awesome power of carpet static! And those fools in the Science Club said it couldn't be done!
- Elmo Sputterspark: [to his own hand] Oh, don't point that thing at me. It might go off. At last! What I always wanted: the ability to enterain others at cocktail parties! But wait, these powers might have greater uses. I can seek revenge on those who tormented me, those who made me a freak, those who...those who gave me this ridiculous hair-style!

- Launchpad: Hey DW, try one of these horse do-overs! They're pretty good!
- Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the nightǃ I am the fast food that comes back to haunt youǃ I am Darkwing Duckǃ
- Megavolt: [to Darkwing] Gee, I suppose I oughta barbecue you now... but I just haven't got the heart. But don't worry, [whips around and zaps Ham String and Preena Lott] I'm still gonna take my revenge on you two!
- Megavolt: Let's see, particle acceleration plus fade conversions equals... TOAST!
- Megavolt: At last! I'll have revenge on those who tormented me! Those who made me what I am! Wha... what am I anyway? A dentist? No, lumberjack? No. ...King of the Jungle?
- Megavolt: At last! At last I'll be rid of those meddling kids and their nosy dog! Whoa, wrong cartoon.

- Darkwing: I knew this would happen! Your food has finally gone bad! And I don't mean bad-rotten, I mean bad-evil! C'mon, Launchpad. Let's get goulash!
- Darkwing: Oh, if only I hadn't blamed your food for kidnapping the bunnies, we wouldn't be on the brink of doom! This is all my fault! ...well, aren't you gonna argue with me? You know, "there there, it's not all your fault, DW," that sort of thing?
