  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Moloculo: All right McCawbers, let's win one for the Grim Reaper.

    • Moloculo: This is it normal. This is where we seperate the men from the monsters.
      Darkwolf: I'm ready for anything. What can a bunch of pitchfork toting yahoos possible do to Darkwolf Dog? (the villagers come over the hill with weapons, tanks, and bombers) Except bring about his untimely demise. Of course, I forgot about that one.

    • Darkwolf: You've got to control your animal instincts, Launchpad. (sees a cat and chases it)

    • Darkwolf: Please keep in mind that burying your father could adversly affect your allowance.

    • Moloculo: McCawbers, we must make our ancestors proud. We must scream the impossible scream.

    • Darkwolf: I'll show those bratworst munching yahoos they can't mess with Darkwing...Darkwolf.

    • (Darkwing, Launchpad, and Gosalyn are walking out of the castle in their monster forms)
      Morgana: They're heading for the village!
      Moloculo: Well good riddance, I say...The Village! But we made a pact with the villagers. They stay on their side of the line and we stay on our side of the line.
      Morgana: You painted a line between the village and the castle. Oh, that's very mature.

    • Darkwolf: I've got a sudden urge to bite a mail man.

    • Monster Gosalyn: Oh yes. Check out the bolts in my neck! (she pulls out the bolts and her head falls off) Keen gear, I'm modular!

    • Darkwing: Stand back, Morgana. I'll protect you from these monstrosities.
      Morgana: That's no way to talk about my family.
      Darkwing: (gulps hard) Your family?

    • Darkwing: (open a door and bats fly out) Well, she's not in the batroom.

    • Morgana: (About Darkwolf) That conceited, arrogant, pig-headed...
      Gosalyn: Look, if you're that mad, why don't you just turn him into a water buffalo, or something?
      Morgana: No! I've got to make him see the wisdom of diplomacy!
      Gosalyn: Then turn him into a diplomatic water buffalo!

    • Darkwolf: Come on, guys. Time to work on our combat skills!
      Moloculo: Come, McCawbers. Time to brush up on our scare tactics!
      Morgana: Oooh, I'll convince them violence isn't the way if I have to kill them!

    • Darkwing: (As a werewolf) I am the terrier that yaps in the night. I am the schnauzer that digs up your petunias. I am Darkwolf Dog!

    • Moloculo: You know I don't approve of normals in my household, Morgana!
      Darkwing: Hey-hey, I'm not normal!
      Gosalyn: You can say that again!

    • Darkwolf: I think Morgana's upset.
      Moloculo : You should have seen her when she was stood up for the prom.

    • Morgana: (To her father) You're trying to scare Darkwing away! Well I won't let you!
      Darkwing: You should let your daughter choose her own company, she has impeccable taste.
      Moloculo: 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.
      Moloculo: She does not want you, she wants the finer things in life! to settle down in a dark, stinking castle, and raise a family of little monsters.
      Morgana: Actually, what I really want is-
      Moloculo & Darkwing: BE QUIET!
      Moloculo: I know what's best for my daughter, duck!
      Darkwing: Well, I don't think you do, Zombie!

  • Allusions

    • Star Trek

      Moloculo: Onward McCawbers. We must boldly scare where no one has scared before.

      This is a direct reference to the main theme of the television series Star Trek which states "To boldly go where no man has gone before."

    • Frank Sinatra

      Moloculo: We must scream the impossible scream.

      This quote is a direct reference to Frank Sinatra's song "My Way" in which one of the lines stated "To dream the impossible dream."

    • Knute Rockne All American

      Moloculo: All right McCawbers, let's win one for the Grim Reaper

      The line that Moloculo uses is taken from the movie Knute Rockne All American in which Ronald Reagan's character (George Gipp) says the famous line "Win one for The Gipper."
