Part I: Don't Give Up The Ship

Donald: Now, while I'm in the Navy, boys, you mind your Uncle Scrooge.
Huey: But he's so cheap!
Donald: Yeah. But he's family. Okay, Huey?
Huey: Yes, Uncle Donald.
Donald: No back talk, Dewey.
Dewey: No, Uncle Donald.
Donald: Louie, be good. And no spitballs.
Louie: Uh, yes and no, Uncle Donald.
Donald: Oh, and one more thing. Gimmie a hug!
[The nephews do so.]
Huey: Oh, we're really gonna miss you, Uncle Donald!
Donald: Aw. And I'm gonna miss you too.

Scrooge: Donald, you can't be serious about this crazy idea. There's no profit in it.
Donald: But I've already enlisted, Uncle Scrooge. I wanna see the world!
Scrooge: So I'll buy you a globe.

[The Beagle Boys have followed the nephews to Scrooge's candy factory]
Scrooge: You boys get out of here. I'll handle this.
Huey: [turning and saluting] No sir, Uncle Scrooge!
Dewey: [saluting] We're all in this...
Louie: [saluting] ...together!
Scrooge: Good lads!

Part II: Wronguay in Ronguay

Flintheart Glomgold: [answering the phone] Money talks, I listen. Speak!

[Surprising each other while searching for the treasure ship]
Glomgold: Scrooge!
Scrooge: Glomgold!
El Capitan: Los ninos!
Huey, Dewey and Louie: That guy!
Launchpad: Big rubble, no trouble! Gyro tells me you need a pilot for an experimental plane.
Scrooge: What I need is my head examined.
Launchpad: Don't worry, Mr. McD. If it's got wings, I can crash it.
Scrooge: I hope my medical insurance is paid up.

Launchpad: Well, the engines are busted, but those condors gave me an idea! Trouble is...I don't know how to get 'er off the ground.
Donald: You leave that to me!
Launchpad: Great! You handle the takeoff!
Donald: Okay!
Launchpad: Things must be worse than I thought...I'm beginning to understand him!

Part IV: Cold Duck

Dewey: Be very very quiet. We're hunting Beakley.

Louie: [about girls] Webby's making friends with penguins while Uncle Scrooge is lost in the snow.
Mrs. Beakley: You know, we could backtrack the walrus' trail and find your uncle.
Louie: Er...yeah! We were just gonna say that!
Dewey: [to Huey] They must get smarter as they get older.

Part V: Too Much Of A Gold Thing

[After crashing the carrier into a river]
Dewey: We're caught in the current!
Scrooge: Looks like your runway is running away with us. Let's get back into the sky!
Launchpad: Don't worry. When the going gets tough, the harder they fall.

Webby: Gee! An escalator!
Mrs. Beakley: No, dear. This is an older model. We have to walk up these.
Bigtime: Thanks for sneakin' us outta jail, Magica. We was gettin' bored waitin' for our time to run out!
Magica: How long was your sentence?
Bigtime: Life.

Scrooge: I didn't get rich by being stupid.
Donald: Nobody's going to make a king out of me and get away with it!

Louie: What are they doing to Unca Donald?
Scrooge: Whatever it is, it will be an improvement.
Huey: Unca Scrooge, what's wrong?
Scrooge: Those movie people called.
Huey: That's good.
Scrooge: But they can't repay me in cash.
Louie: That's bad.
Scrooge: So instead they're giving me Duckburg Studios.
Huey, Dewey, Louie and Doofus: That's GREAT!

Scrooge: If Duckburg studios is going to survive, Major Courage is going to need a major overhaul.
Major Courage: Uh... How major?
Scrooge: Major major, Major.

[The Phoenix "set" takes off through the roof of the studio.]
Scrooge: What did you do?
Gyro Gearloose: Well, you said, "make it as real as I could," so I did.

Launchpad: Real heroes don't need cameras, they just do what needs to be done.

Scrooge: Hurry! We've got to warn them!
[in a fury, he smashes the instrument panel with his cane]
Scrooge: What's the matter? Don't we have a radio?!
Gyro Gearloose: Well, yes... and no.

Scrooge: I'm warning you, Courage! Turn that ship around and get my nephews, or you'll never work in this town again!
Major Courage: Forget it, McDuck! Remember, I've got a five-year contract.
Scrooge: YOU...! YOU...!
[he raises his cane, Gyro grabs it]
Gyro Gearloose: Not the radio!

[The Cronk ship closes in on the Phoenix.]
Scrooge: There goes the picture again!
Gyro Gearloose: Please, allow me.
[He takes Scrooge's cane and smashes the radio.]

Armstrong [1.9]

Scrooge: You know what I like about gold? I have a lot of it!

Armstrong: I am Armstrong. I am your friend.

Scrooge: Why no marshmallows in my hot chocolate?
Duckworth: [clears throat] It's inefficient, sir.
Scrooge: Efficiency has its place but NOT in my hot chocolate.

Scrooge: No battery-operated tin can dictator is going to stop me!
[gets shocked]
Gyro Gearloose: Nothing can stop him!

Robot Robbers [1.10]

Scrooge: [About newspapers] I just love looking through the Business section. My name's on every page.

Beagle Boys: YEAH!
Bankjob: We gotta get out of here and into Scrooge's money bin!
Beagle Boys: YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!

Glomgold: I have to rebuild half the city, and I can't use my robots!
Scrooge: McDuck Construction will be glad to handle the job for you.
Glomgold: How much will that cost?!
Scrooge: How much you got?
Glomgold: Scrooge McDuck, you're a low-down ruthless rat!
Scrooge: What can I say, Flintheart? You bring out the best in me.

Magica's Shadow War [1.11]

Huey: It's a shadow thief!
Scrooge: After him! Er.. her! Er.. it!

Poe: Shadow took over, locked Magica in a closet! Free her!
Scrooge: Free that-that-that WITCH?! Never! It serves her right! She can stay locked in 'til Doomsday and it would be just ducky with me.
Huey: But if she gets rid of that shadow...
Dewey: We can't keep these lights on forever.
Louie: Think of the electric bill.
Scrooge: You have a point. Okay, let's go.

Master of the Djinni [1.12]

Scrooge: Still a cheater, eh, Glomgold?

Hotel Strangeduck [1.13]

Louie: It sure is dark in here.

Louie: T-t-thank you. Now we know which way to run.
Huey, Dewey and Louie: YAAAAH!

[Scrooge and the boys walk down a secret staircase to the basement]
Huey: Wonder where this goes.
Scrooge: Looks like it goes around the corner. [they go through a tunnel and the fire touches his fingers; yelps as the light goes out] Curse me kilts! That was my last one!
Dewey: Hey. What's this? [pulls a string and turns on a lightbulb]
Louie: Looks like a lightbulb.
Scrooge: Good work, lads.

Huey: Hey, why would a ghost need to use a door?
Dewey: Is that a riddle or a knock-knock joke?

The Lost Crown of Genghis Khan [1.14]

Webby: You're so smart, Uncle Scrooge.
Scrooge: Thanks, darling. And wasn't it smart of you to notice?

Launchpad: You guys gotta think positive!
Huey: But, Launchpad, Webby's lost, Unca Scrooge is lost, we're lost...
Louie: ...and there's a monster in these caves trying to get 'em.
Launchpad: C'mon! There must be something positive about all this.
Dewey: If we don't keep moving, we're going to freeze to death.
Launchpad: There you go!... You gotta keep a stiff upper lip, Louie.
Louie: That's easy. It's frozen.

Duckman of Aquatraz [1.15]

Louie: Yeah! He only likes little paintings of presidents. The ones on dollar bills.

Mr. Oink: That is enough, Mr. McDuck?!

[Scrooge is arm-wrestling the other inmates in quick succession]
Scrooge: [wins] Next. [wins] Next. [wins] Next.

The Money Vanishes [1.16]

Scrooge: Until tomorrow, my beautiful cash. Good night, sleep tight and don't let inflation bite.

Dewey: Go ahead, Beagle Boys, take my ray!

Sir Gyro de Gearloose [1.17]

Dewey: I think we came at a bad time.
Gyro: Hi, boys. What can I do for you three?

Judge: Now what were you here about, son?
Launchpad: [quickly and nervously] I just wanted to tell you a joke: I knew a burglar who was so successful, he stopped makin' house calls. A yuk-yuk. [hurries away]
Judge: Yuck is right.

Launchpad: [to Ma Beagle] I'm lookin' for my friend Doofus, chubby little kid, about the size of this lamp. [motions to Doofus, who is tied up with a lampshade on his head]

Scrooge: Just make sure you don't roll into anything. [hears some noises over the walkie-talkie] What's all that racket?
Launchpad: Eh, nothing to be concerned about. Just a little fender-bender, that's all.
Scrooge: [hears people screaming] Why are people screaming?
Launchpad: Ah, the sissies never saw a shopping mall collapse before. But don't worry; I'm OK!
Scrooge: How far are you from the mountain I bought?
Launchpad: I'd say about an hour, give or take a crash or two. Ooh, kiss that billboard goodbye. Launchpad, over and out!

Ma Beagle: Bermuda Beagle? I don't remember a son named Bermuda. 'Course, I got more boys than a toad has warts!
Fenton: Ah, the old place looks just like I remember it!
Baggy: Ahhh, but we didn't live here 20 years ago.
Fenton: B-but what does it matter? The point is, we were together, a family. And by golly, any low-down worm that disagrees, he'll just have to take it up or we'll forklift it out of his hide. Speaking of hide, let's Beagle-bond a bit with a rousing game of hide-and-seek!
Burger: Ooh, ooh, goody! Who's gonna be it?
Fenton: Let's flip for it! Heads I win, tails you lose. Anybody got a bag full of dimes we could use?
Ma Beagle: Hold it, you canine counterfiet! Look at this family photo. No Bermuda!
Fenton: Uh, would you believe I was adopted?

Fenton: Wakey-wakey. Hello, little boy. I'm the Tooth Fairy, and have I got a deal for you.
Baggy: Uh, really?
Fenton: Yes. If you give me that bag of dimes, I'll give you this bag of teeth.

Ma Beagle: Yeah, but only to swipe their silverware.

GizmoDuck: Gandra! Would you believe you've stolen my heart?
Gandra: So is that any reason to steal my car?

Fenton: Right now, I'd be happy if it was Tuesday and this was Belgium!

General Chiquita: It's your last day, McDuck! For assaulting the president of the Banana Republic, I order you and your amigo here shot at high noon!
Fenton: Is that high noon on Friday, or Saturday?

Fenton: But I'm too young to die! And too nice! And much, much too nervous!

Scrooge: What's going on? High noon isn't for another hour!

Comic stories

Glomgold: I know that Scrooge. I bet he's going to steal the sidewalks... or change the traffic lights, from red and green to vermillion and polka dot.

Glomgold: And who are you, little lady?
Magica: I'm no lady, I'm Magica DeSpell, the most evil sorceress in the world, and Scrooge's worst enemy.
Glomgold: I'm sorry, but I'm Scrooge's worst enemy.
Magica: Ha! I'm twice the enemy you are. I hate him.
Glomgold: Well, I hate him more than you do!
Magica: Yeah? Well, I hate him more than ring-around-the-cauldron!
Glomgold: I hate him more than an I.R.S. audit in August!
Magica: I'll turn you into a tongue-tied tree toad, you old buzzard. I'm more evil than ten of you!

Fair official: Scrooge McDuck, you didn't pay for your rides on the ferris wheel, airplane, or water slide. You owe us two dollars and fifty-nine cents!
Scrooge: Just for three little rides? [sigh] I could've bought seven new hats for the price of this one! [double sigh]

Baggy: Scroogie got hold of some kind of treasure map, and he's taking off with his nephews tomorrow for the Artichoke!
Bigtime: Not the Artichoke, idiot! The Arctic!
Baggy: So? What's the difference?
Bigtime: The Arctic is an ocean and an artichoke is a vegetable, dimwit!
Baggy: Boy, are you smart! It's no wonder they call you Bigtime around here!
Bigtime: They'll be calling you "Toothless" if you don't put me down!

Glomgold: I've signed a whopping million dollar contract to write a book on my space odyssey! I'll make even more on the movie rights!
Scrooge: Burst me bagpipes and tan me tartans! If it wasn't for me, you'd still be stuck on that miserable planet!
Glomgold: I'm a fair man... I'll give you a one-line mention in the book!

Scrooge: [when aliens steal his cuff links] Oh no, you don't! Not unless you've got eightteen quadrillion bucks! And FIFTY CENTS!

Launchpad: Trapezium can be synthesized out of almost anything! Trouble is, it's not usually worth the effort! You can pick 'em up for a nickel over in St. Canard! I know this screwy duck and his daughter over there...

Scrooge: Hold still, Magica! I get extra points for evil sorceress in this game!

Fenton: Yipes! What do I do next? I'm no Launchpad! I can't fly!"

Baggy: Geez! I ain't scrubbed so much since the reform school graduation dance!

Scrooge: Confound you, Launchpad! You knocked the top off another pyramid!
Launchpad: [gulp] Sorry, sir! At least now they're a matched set!

Launchpad: $6.17? You dragged me away from my nap just to collect a dinky sum like that?

Scrooge: [as Magica tries to steal his Number One Dime] Why, oh why couldn't that woman have a fetish for rutabagas, or something?

Glomgold: What's this world coming to when you'd rather watch TV than argue with your greatest enemy?

Magica: It's not nice to fire at a lady! And it's incredibly stupid to shoot at a witch!

Scrooge: You let us go right now or I'm going to buy this place and tear it down to build hamburger stands!
