* 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?

* The episode "About Face" has Duckman falling in love with a 911 operator [[ArousedByTheirVoice over the phone]], staying with her and actually being ''honest'' about himself even after finding out that she's TheGrotesque, so hideous that even ''[[TastesLikeDiabetes Fluffy & Uranus]]'' are horrified. She eventually gets plastic surgery and becomes the ''perfect'' woman... [[CruelToBeKind at which point he breaks up with her]], [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy realizing that he's completely beneath what she deserves]].
