  • Quotes

    • Darkwing: (Gets thrown through the air again) I oughtta get frequent flier miles after this caper.

    • Darkwing: (One of the ants is heading straight for him) So the bug wants to play chicken, eh? (They head for each other and the ant swerves hitting a mushroom) That'll teach you to mess with the masked mallard, bugly.

    • Darkwing: (Jumps in a buggy, knocking the ant out of it) Time for some serious Darkwing driving. Yee haw! (Takes off in the buggy) OK, you ants. Eat my dust.

    • Darkwing: (Hears motors revving and cheering) What in the...? (Sees the ants in dune buggies) Bugs in buggies!

    • (Darkwing's cape catches on a blade of grass stopping him from hitting the ground)
      Darkwing: Ha! Saved by my cat-like reflexes. (Cape tears) Whoops! (He hits the ground) That does it. No more cheap polyester capes for this duck.

    • (Upon finding the miniature Hamburger Hippo stand)
      Drake Mallard: Either I'm dreaming or this is a job for...(Goes behind a tree to change) William Drakespear! Oh, gah...Wrong costume. Ha. This is no time for poetry. It's time for...(Goes behind tree again to change)Darkwing Duck!

    • Gosalyn: Did you forget?
      Darkwing: I never forget. But, just out of curiosity, which of the many things I haven't forgotten are you referring to?
      Gosalyn: The one where you take me and Honker to Goony Golf.
      Darkwing: I was afraid it was that one.

    • Darkwing: (Speaking to Hamburger Hippo Chef after discovering the restaurant has disappeared) Put your worries in the deep fryer. I'll solve this burger burglary before your buns cool off.

    • Darkwing: Finally, our bleary-eyed bastion of bravery and bravado heads home to his warm bed, soft pillow, blue blankie, and...
      Launchpad: Oh no!
      Darkwing: (Brings motorcycle to screeching halt) Where? What is it? Murder? Fire? Alien invaders?
      Launchpad: I left my scarf at Hamburger Hippo's.
      Darkwing: (Being sarcastic) A crisis of epic proportions.

    • Hamburger Hippo Chef: You're not a robber?
      Darkwing: Correct, I am not a robber.
      Hamburger Hippo Chef: You're just some weirdo in a mask.
      Darkwing: Correct, I am just some weirdo in a mask...hey!

    • Launchpad: What do you say we stop off for a burger or three, DW.
      Darkwing: How could you possibly be hungry? You've been eating all night!
      Launchpad: Hey, you burn a lot of calories thwarting evil.
      Darkwing: Fine. Lovely. I bet Tonto never made the Lone Ranger stop for burgers.

    • Darkwing: Ha-ha! Dexterous do-gooder Darkwing Duck dips and dodges, deftly defying disaster!

    • Darkwing: Sometimes, parenthood makes crimefighting look easy.

    • Darkwing Duck: I am the terror that flaps in the night. I am...(Notices the ants) the smallest, weakest thing in the whole place, and I am also out of here!

    • Darkwing Duck: You know ants can carry ten times there own weight.
      Launchpad: Big deal! Anything can carry ten times an ant's weight!

    • Darkwing: You see? Size isn't what's important. It's being outnumbered!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Gosalyn: Koo Koo cola!

      This is a reference to the Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers episode "The Case of The Cola Cult", which featured the exact same beverage.

    • Lilliput's helmet gives him the ability to talk to ants. This could be a reference to Antman, a Marvel superhero who also has a helmet to communicate with ants and other insects. Also Antman has the power to shrink, much like DW did in this episode.
