Cleo is the Designated Reader for this episode.
Gawain's Word: "St" and "uck" blend together to make the word "stuck" in the sequence that is featured in the program's opening. The silver and gold knights get stuck together.
The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff Hanger spots a big, flying rug in Adventure 73: Cliff Hanger and the Big Flying Rug. He checks his Trusty Survival Manual, which advises him to jump on the rug. He does, but while flying about on it, a bug pops out and says "give me a hug, you big lug." Frightened of the bug, Cliff Hanger backs away and falls off the rug. He is forced to grab back onto the branch jutting out of the cliff to save his life. And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger!
Buster: All right, that's enough. I don't want a cute little duck on my head, anymore. Good-bye, duck.
Duck: 'Not as cute' is good enough. Thanks, Lionel.
Duck: Good-bye, three-dimensional world!
Gawain: And this is Gawain saying
'don't you get stuck.'
Duck: Oh, I am doomed to be cute forever.
Leona: Don't be sad, little duck. I'm really glad you're still cute.
Duck: (singing) I was a cream puff / Now I've got power.
Duck: (singing) Instead of nice, I'm being rude / And look who's back, the duck in black / And you'd better watch out / I'm in a 'fowl' mood.
Lionel: You've heard of the big, bad wolf. Well, stand back and get ready for the big, bad duck.
Boy: Mom, there's a statue with a duck coming out of the top of his head.
Mom: Why a duck?
Buster: (wearing Groucho Marx mustache and glasses) Why not! Ha ha ha ha. Come on, yuck it up. This is classic comedy!
Duck: I want power. I want respect.
Lionel: It's over! It's over! The cuteness is over!
Duck: It's over, all right. I am sick and tired of being nothing but cute. Cute all the time, cute!
Leona: I like cute duck books!
Leona: Shh. I'm sneaking up on my brother, Lionel. I'm gonna jump on him, and he doesn't even know it.
"The Lucky Duck" is available as a book by the same name, written by Sarah Durkee.
