  • QUOTES (5)

    • Megavolt: Well howdy, cowboy!
      Darkwing: Howdy yourself, you pony pilferer! Now, cease and desist at once, or you'll be really, really sorry!
      Megavolt: Oh, but I'm already sorry; Sorry I won't be around to see you go splat!

    • Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night.
      Megavolt: Oh, no. Not him again.

    • (Gizmoduck flies into Darkwing's hideout)
      Darkwing: Don't you ever knock?
      Gizmoduck: This superhero has more on his mind than manners, Darkwing. The new Gizmo-doll is defective. It has a screw loose.
      Darkwing: And that surprises him?

    • Darkwing: This is it Megavolt's hideout.
      Gizmoduck: But why would Megavolt stay here when we are sure to find him?
      Darkwing: Simple, cheap rent.

    • Darkwing: I am the blown fuse that blacks you out!
      Gizmoduck: Stick with me Darkwing, and I'll teach you everything I know.
      Darkwing: Well, that should take a good four or five minutes.

    • Shakespeare's Julius Ceaser
