For context: Duckman has spent the whole episode in and out of depression because he feels his family doesn't appreciate him. Ajax guves him half of his hoagie and tells him that he thinks DM's doing a great job. Ajax grabs one last bite and gives his dad the rest of the sandwich (which he had confessed he didn't want to eat because he had fallen in love with it-so he'd given his father his ''Magnum Opus'' to let him know how much he loves him.)

* In "The One with Lisa Kudrow in a Small Role" and ends up abducted by aliens. While he sees their planet, the family notices he's missing and gets worried. Duckman and Cornfed look for clues in Ajax's room—finding out instead that Ajax has started himself a college fund, but it's full of IOUs for money he's been slipping ''into'' his father's wallet for Duckmans recreational expenses.
-->Duckman:This must be every allowance he ever got. Didn't he ever spend any money to make himself happy?
-->Cornfed: Apparently this did make him happy.

** The same episode has Ajax completely heartbroken when [[spoiler:Cornfed starts to get his intelligence back, costing Ajax his only friend.]] Cornfed assures Ajax he'll still be his friend, even if it won't be the same, and takes him to meet his idol Merv Griffin.

* While it borders on AuthorTract, Duckman's pep-talk to America at the end of "America the Beautiful" fits.
-->'''Duckman''': There've even been times I've wanted to give up - but if I do, how can I expect things to ever get better? What kind of world would I be leaving my kids?
