[[caption-width-right:350:Put out the Darkwing! Put out the Darkwing!]]
* At least half of his [[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Darkwing_Duck#.22I_am_the....22 intro lines]].
-->'''Darkwing''': ''(appears in a cloud of red smoke)'' I AM THE TERROR THAT FLAPS IN THE NIGHT... I AM... obviously all out of my trademark blue smoke...
* This exchange from "Life, the Negaverse, and Everything".
-->'''Television Reporter''': Newsflash: Darkwing Duck is loose in St. Canard! Mighty Negaduck demands that Darkwing Duck be arrested on sight.
-->'''[=NegaDuck=]''': No, I said "shot"! Darkwing Duck should be '''shot''' on sight! ...Or skinned. Yeah! Skin him alive! ...No, no, even better, ''burn'' him to fiery ash! ...And then arrest him.
* The [[NoodleIncident exposition dialogue]] explaining how Darkwing ended up in a wheelchair:
-->'''Darkwing''': If it weren't for that stupid ski accident, I wouldn't be sitting in this thing.
-->'''Launchpad''': Well, I told you things got rough at those ski shop sales. You're lucky only your legs were broken.
* "Dances With Bigfoot": Darkwing has been kidnapped by a primitive tribe to be fed to their volcano god. Gosalyn uses a comic book to translate the tribe's language and says they'll release him if he passes their tests -- a fight with their champion and a dance contest. After Gosalyn helps him win both, the tribe chief says something to them.
-->'''Darkwing''': What does that mean?
-->'''Gosalyn''': It means, "You have passed the tests, therefore, you're free to go."
-->''(fade to them tied up and standing at spear point on the volcano's edge)''
-->'''Honker''': Or, "You have passed the tests, therefore, you are worthy of being [[AppeaseTheVolcanoGod thrown into the volcano]]."
-->'''Darkwing''': Remind me to thank you properly for helping daddy pass those tests, ''dear''.
* "Night of the Living Spud":
** Darkwing demonstrates the "proper" way to get a semi to stop and give you a lift: stepping boldly out into the road, extending your arm and declaring "HALT!" The truck promptly runs him down and grinds to a stop.
--->"See...? Works every time..."
** "[[WeaksauceWeakness It's not]] ''[[SdrawkcabName potato]]'' [[SdrawkcabName backwards]] -- it's ''[[ExactWords potato backwards]]''!"
** "''Red'' potatoes ya can reason with-but ''Russets''-they's just plain mean!"
* "Just Us Justice Ducks":
** Negaduck is posing as Darkwing Duck to steal a bazooka from SHUSH, but Darkwing soon enters the room. Unable to figure out who's who. Sarah Bellum's solution? "Oh well, we'll just have to kill them both."
** This episode has the ''best'' HumiliationConga ''ever.'' As well as...
--->'''Darkwing''': ''(posing as a delivery man)'' Flowers for Negaduck!\\
'''Negaduck''': I ''hate'' flowers.\\
'''Darkwing''': Er, did I say flowers? I meant ''skulls''. Skulls for Negaduck!\\
'''Negaduck''': ''(salivates)'' I'll be right there.
** The punchline to that scene:
--->'''Darkwing''': Oh, did I say ''skulls''? I meant ''ANVILS!'' (WHACK!)
** "Aww, I dented my anvil!"
** Now available [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41JC-SlleNI on Youtube]].
** "Now it's time to say good-bye to all our company!" Negaduck quoting the Mickey Mouse Club. Sheer cool.
** Earlier in the episode:
--->'''Stegmutt''': Oh, Darkwing, are you busy?\\
'''Darkwing''': Busy? No, no, I'm just with the most dangerous villains, [[SarcasmMode Bushroot and Liquidator, and we're playing let's pretend]]!\\
'''Liquidator''': Yeah! Let's pretend! Let's pretend he's on fire!\\
'''Bushroot''': Yeah! Put out the Darkwing! Put out the Darkwing!\\
'''Darkwing''': Nice try, Greensleeves, but it won't work-\\
'''Stegmutt''': ''(Grabs Darkwing and starts smacking him against the ground)'' [[AmusingInjuries Put out the Darkwing! Put out the Darkwing]]!\\
'''Liquidator''': 4 out of 5 dentists say that it's time for us to get out of here!
** Then, Bushroot's giant plant falls on him. Even funnier is Darkwing's expression when he says the following line after Stegmutt pulls him out from under the beanstalk.
--->'''Darkwing''': This is the second most-painful moment of my life.\\
'''Stegmutt''': What was the first most-painful?\\
'''Darkwing''': "Put out the Darkwing, put out the Darkwing!"
** And a short time later, after Darkwing unthinkingly offends Neptunia, she hurls him halfway across the city to end up buried upside down to his waist in solid asphalt:
--->'''Darkwing''': This is the ''third'' most-painful moment of my life.
** In the final battle:
--->'''Stegmutt''': ''(has Bushroot by the neck)'' I've never fought a super villain before. What do I do?\\
'''Darkwing''': It's easy, Stegmutt! Let's pretend Mr. Bushroot is on fire!\\
'''Bushroot''': [[OhCrap Uh-oh!]]\\
'''Stegmutt''': Yay! Put out the Bushroot! Put out the Bushroot! ''(begins bashing Bushroot against the floor)''
** Liquidator's reaction when Darkwing produces a box of pudding powder and Morgana transmits it to the air immediately over the water-based villain's head: "[[KillItWithWater AAAHHHH!! DO NOT ADD WATER!!]]"
** "[[LargeHam It will take more than two treacherous transgressors to taint the track record of...]] ''DARKWIIIIING''... Yak."
** After catching Negaduck as he bounces repeatedly off electricity wires with a pie, a flowerpot, an anvil, a safe, and a 100 ton weight, Darkwing rushes to the ground and drives up to where Negaduck is about to fall in a garbage truck... then reverses out of the way to let him make a Negaduck-shaped hole in the road, while saying, "Oops. ''Missed.''"
* In "Twin Beaks" Bushroot rallies his troops against the [[ItMakesSenseInContext alien cabbage invasion]]. ([[EvenEvilHasStandards He may be a mutant vegetable duck,]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards but he's an]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards Earth]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards mutant vegetable duck]].)
-->'''Bushroot''': No one's going to call us a bunch of pansies!\\
''[A bunch of his sentient pansies start complaining.]''\\
'''Bushroot''': [[PresentCompanyExcluded Sorry, guys.]]
* "Malice's Restaurant":
-->'''Morgana''': If you're not ashamed of me, then why don't you take me anywhere! Why have I never met any of your friends!\\
'''Darkwing''': With my busy crime-busting schedule, I don't have time to make friends!\\
'''Launchpad''': Gee DW, what about Herb and Binkie?\\
'''Darkwing''': You exist to torment me, don'tcha?
* "The Secret Origins of Darkwing Duck."
-->'''Venerable One:''' ''(thwack)'' Freeloader.
-->'''Launchpad:''' Ya sure?
-->'''Darkwing:''' Mmmm, yeah.
-->'''Avenger:''' ''(in those "from beyond the grave" type thought bubbles)'' ''(gasp)'' Atta boy...Darkwing...ugh I'm dead.
* ''Shhhhh, it's a flyyyyy...''
* From "Jail Bird": Negaduck has absorbed all the powers of the Fearsome Five.
-->'''Quackerjack''': I'm ruined! Ruined! Ruined!!!\\
'''Mega Negaduck''': What are you whining about? You never had any powers to begin with!\\
'''Quackerjack''': YOU STOLE MY WACKINESS!\\
'''Mega Negaduck''': I did not- ''(suddenly sprouts giant teeth similar to Quackerjack's)'' HOO-HOO HOO HOO! ''(giant teeth disappear)'' Okay, so I did!
* "I claim this India in the name of Spain!"
** "That's one small step for man, one... (Notices Megavolt crushed under the landing craft) ...really bad day for that guy!"
* When Drake attempts to get some sleep in the afternoon episode, Gosalyn prepares to drive a golf ball off of his bill whilst he rests. He then reveals he is still awake and utters this legendary line: "Have I ever told you the story of the little girl, the golf club and [[DisproportionateRetribution the firing squad]]?"
* "Dry Hard":
** After the Liquidator turns all of St. Canard's tap water into hard water, Darkwing and Launchpad end up landing in the still-normal bay, prompting Darkwing to taunt with this: "We can drink the baa-ay! Nya, nya!"
** Also, throughout the episode, Bud Flood was followed around by crooning women singing ad jingles whilst wearing whatever costume fit for the situation. They even followed him around when he turned into the Liquidator and, as he trapped Darkwing in boiling water, they strutted around singing in ''lobster costumes.''
** The angrily shouted "I don't need no stinking pygmy phlange!"
* Derek Blunt has just drawn a circle around the island of Phineas Sharp. D.W. is so shocked he can only say "You drew on my map" in a voice so deadpan and disbelieving.
* "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain":
** Launchpad's increasingly desperate attempts to get out of hearing the story. At one point, he ''derails the entire cartoon'' by [[InteractiveNarrator trying to narrate a picnic instead.]] At the scariest point he actually has a heart attack - and after the commercial break they just keep telling the story anyway.
--->''(Gosalyn has just tried to get rid of Paddywhack's jack-in-the-box by throwing it into a safe and slamming the door, only for it to re-appear on the table; she screams and jumps into Launchpad's arms)''\\
'''Gosalyn:''' Keep calm, Launchpad... I'm sure this has a logical, rational explanation...\\
'''Launchpad:''' Yeah, like the box is cursed!\\
'''Gosalyn:''' Sounds right to me, let's get Dad! ''(they run for the door in a blind panic, only for the door to roll up as though on a strip of wallpaper, causing them to crash into the wall)'' Radical...\\
''(bluebirds begin flying around their heads, and the scene dissolves to a pleasant meadow as Darkwing, Gosalyn, and Launchpad walk through carrying a picnic basket)''\\
'''Launchpad:''' ''(voiceover)'' Remember when... we went on that picnic last summer? The sun was out. The air was fresh! It was a great day to be alive! ''(Gosalyn walks up with a bunch of flowers and sniffs them; the scene dissolves back to Darkwing's lair, and Gosalyn throws the flowers aside)''\\
'''Gosalyn:''' Launchpad, what are you doing!? I'm trying to build a little atmosphere!
** Darkwing and Quackerjack teaming up to defeat Paddywhack is hysterical and must be seen to be believed.
--->'''Paddywhack:''' Yes... time to taste a little misery. ''(we hear Darkwing and Quackerjack laughing insanely; Quackerjack squirts Darkwing with a trick flower, then Darkwing smashes Quackerjack with a giant mallet, then they both laugh in unison)'' I thought you'd be more... miserable.\\
'''Darkwing:''' ''(laughs as he walks past holding Quackerjack's feet as he walks on his hands, "wheelbarrow" style)'' Not us! We love this crazy place!\\
'''Quackerjack:''' Yeah! It lets me truly... express myself! ''(smashes Darkwing with a giant anvil)''\\
'''Darkwing:''' ''(as his beak and hands protrude from under the anvil)'' Whoooah, waka... say, Quackerjack, didja get the licence of that truck?\\
'''Quackerjack:''' Ah, no, but I got the truck, ah-waka waka! ''(opens a nearby door; a truck speeds out and runs Paddywhack over while blaring its horn)''\\
'''Paddywhack:''' ''(stands up woozily)'' Wait, I'm not supposed to- ''(knock knock)'' I'm certainly not going to answer that. ''(a grand piano falls out of the sky and lands on him)''\\
'''Darkwing:''' ''(hops out of the piano)'' I'll get it! ''(he opens the door as a furious Paddywhack storms over and gets knocked flying by a giant boxing glove that emerges from the door)''\\
'''Quackerjack:''' ''(appears through the door)'' No - ''he'' got it!\\
'''Paddywhack:''' ''(head spinning around)'' S-s-stop it! You're, you're starving me! ''(shrinks to half his size)''\\
'''Darkwing:''' Not so tasty on the receiving end, is it?\\
'''Quackerjack:''' ''(through Mr. Banana Brain)'' Say fellas, maybe this is the part where we show him love and kindness, and he vows to mend his evil ways! ''(Paddywhack nods eagerly and points at Mr. Banana Brain)''\\
'''Darkwing, Quackerjack:''' Eh... NAH! ''(they shock Paddywhack with joy buzzers; he shoots into the air, then Darkwing produces a whoopee cushion, which Paddywhack lands on)'' ''(falsetto "schoolgirl" voices)'' Oh, ''goodness!''...
* "Clash Reunion":
** It seems Megavolt's train of thought is easily derailed.
*** When he has high school bullies Ham String and Preena Lott at his mercy, he declares, "At last, I shall have my revenge on those who tormented me! Those who MADE ME WHO I AM! Wait, wha... What am I, anyway? A dentist? No... A lumberjack? No... King of the Jungle?"
*** When he appears to have defeated Darkwing and is about to incinerate Ham, Preena, Gosalyn, and Launchpad in a giant lightbulb, he laughs, "At last! At last I'll be rid of [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo those meddling kids and their nosy dog!]]... whoa, wrong cartoon."
*** And when Darkwing finally foils his scheme at the end of the episode, he declares, "I may have been defeated, but I know Darkwing's secret identity! He's... Elmo Sputterspark! No, wait, that's not right. Ham String? No, that's the big guy..."
** Darkwing Duck gets his former classmates to apologize for mistreating him.
--->'''Ham String''': I'm sorry for acting like a chowder head.\\
'''Darkwing Duck''': Aw, Ham, [[StealthInsult you weren't acting]].
** To protect his secret identity, Darkwing Duck uses the same hypnotic disc on Ham and Preena with which he accidentally hypnotised himself years earlier.
--->[[EasyAmnesia Draaaake Mallard is not Darkwing Duck.]] Draaake Mallard is not Darkwing Duck. But he is an all-around cool guy and you should never pick on him! [[BrickJoke Good thing I finally figured out how this puppy works.]]
* All of Galvanized [=PosiDuck=]'s lines. Don't forget to floss!
** Hey now, Negaduck I, while a bit terrifying galvanized, was pretty funny when he was normal.
--->'''Gosalyn''': It's the Muddlefoots!
--->'''Negaduck I''': Oh great. Let me get my shotgun...
** He was still funny even when galvanized. "NEVER EAT AT A PLACE CALLED MOM'S!"
* [[EnemyMine Megavolt and Darkwing's]] interactions in "The Frequency Fiends" are hilarious, especially this gem:
-->'''Megavolt''': We need negative polarity!\\
'''Darkwing''': A-da-da-da-da-da! This is some kind of trick! Even I know negative is bad! ''Positive'' is good!\\
'''Megavolt''': NEGATIVE! Negative, negative, negative!\\
'''Darkwing''': Positive, positive positive pos pos pos pos pos-\\
'''Gosalyn''': Hold it! Don't you think you're being a little bit immature?!\\
'''Darkwing''': You're right... ''(Grabs a chair and rope, and ties up Megavolt)'' Positive.\\
'''Megavolt''': ''(Practically in tears)'' [[WhatTheHellHero I think what hurts the most is that you call yourself a superhero!]]
* Pretty much all of "My Valentine Ghoul". It has got to be one of the funniest episodes.
** It's already hilarious to see Negaduck pretend to be reformed and keep spoiling Darkwing and Morgana's date like a bratty brother trying to get D.W. in trouble, but it gets HYSTERICAL once D.W. is affected by a love potion Gosalyn makes and believes Negaduck is his best friend.
--->'''Darkwing''': Aaaw, what's the matter, Negsy, old pal? Is there anything else I can do for you!?\\
'''Negaduck''': Yeah! Go jump off a cliff!\\
'''Darkwing''': Yo. Anything for you, Negmeister!\\
''(Darkwing runs out of the house to a large cliff and jumps off screaming 'GERONIMOOOO!')''\\
'''Negaduck''': And to think; all this time, all I had to do was ask.
** And it all gets even funnier near the end when Morgana uses the love potion on Negaduck to make him fall for her and gives him a jawbreaker... literally. She punches him so hard in the beak he flies into his own pile of stolen diamonds, is covered in chocolate and packed in his own box of valentine sweets. Truly a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for Morgana.
* [[NonSequiturThud "WHO?! WHAT?! WHEN?! WHERE?! SOMETIMES WHY?!"]]
* When Taurus Bulba, now a super-cyborg, grabs Darkwing with some nasty intentions, the hero ''kisses'' him, causing the villain to let him go and frantically rub his lips in disgust. May also double as Awesome.
* Tuskernini's trial at the beginning of "Adopt-a-Con" is just golden.
-->'''Darkwing Duck:''' I caught that hateful, underhanded [[LargeHam ham]], Tuskernini, robbing a bank.
-->'''Tuskernini:''' Objection, your honor! [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne I am not a ham!]]
-->'''Judge:''' Darkwing Duck, do you have any evidence?
-->'''Darkwing Duck:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint These reviews of his performance in "Son of Macbeth."]]
-->'''Judge:''' I mean the bank robbery!
* The ending to the video game, while short and pointless, gives us a perfect DW moment. He's riding down the street on the Ratcatcher, with dramatic, Mega Man X ish music playing in the background. Then he hits a rock, which stops the Ratcatcher dead, and launches DW into the air. The game pauses as he's silhouetted against the moon, and the theme plays.
* In "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E45DeadDuck Dead Duck]]", when Launchpad tearfully says that he can "almost hear" Darkwing, Darkwing's ghost, in a moment obviously borrowed from WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, jumps up and down and screams, "Almost? If I yell any louder, I'll rupture something!"
* "Slaves to Fashion" has a lot of funny moments. For example, the hypno-gas makes Launchpad fly an imaginary plane due to wearing his pilot regalia at the costume party while Gosalyn and Honker start conversing as if they are upper class snobs. Near the end of the episode, Darkwing and Tuskernini end up in costumes and adopting different personae, resulting in the two dressing like a bride and groom and almost getting ''married'' until Gosalyn pulls her father away.
* Megavolt acting like the negatron Negaduck is his son in "Negaduck".
* "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E30ToysCzarUs Toys Czar Us]]" has Drake multitasking, reading a book on how to be the "perfect parent" while doing the laundry and making dinner. The result? While he's on the phone with Launchpad, an ocean of suds starts rolling onscreen from one direction and a plume of black smoke from the other.
-->'''Gosalyn:''' Oh, dad...
-->'''Drake:''' [[NotNowKiddo Not now,]] Daddy's talking on Mr. Phone!
-->'''Gosalyn:''' But, dad...!
** She then gives up and, while her dad finishes the call, [[FunnyBackgroundEvent pulls a fireman's hat and fire extinguisher out of nowhere and rushes off-screen.]]
!From the new comic:
* This exchange:
--> '''Launchpad''': D.W., Liquidator’s used the cold snap to make beings of pure ice!
--> '''Darkwing''': Not a problem.
--> '''Launchpad''': Bullets can't stop 'em! The ice just grows back.
--> '''Darkwing''': Only a small matter.
--> '''Launchpad''': Not to mention, YOUR LEFT ARM HAS BEEN TURNED INTO A SNAKE!
--> '''Darkwing''': Barely worth noting.
** And later...
--->'''Launchpad''': D.W., Quackerjack has turned every G.I. Melvin toy into his personal army!
--->'''Darkwing''': A blip on the radar.
--->'''Launchpad''': Yeah, I guess it's not our biggest problem. Now your left arm's been turned into '''ME!'''
--->'''Darkwing''': This, I'm willing to admit, is an inconvenience.
** Yet another adventure D.W. reminisces about has him and Launchpad go forward in time to an era where everyone looks like Launchpad.
* In issue 3 when [[spoiler: Darkwing Duck decides to come out of retirement fully.]]
-->'''Launchpad''': ''(Phew)'' I'm glad ya think so! There uh, aren't really a lot of positions open for sidekicks/pilots. ''(The other day...) (Whilst holding the [[spoiler: Rescue Rangers' plane]] in his palm)'' I can pilot this!
-->[[spoiler:'''Gadget''']]: No. No, you cannot.
* Guard dogs!
** Guard flamingos!

* "Aw, he wants a game of hide-and-seek! Well, two can play at that... um... game. Of hide-and-seek. [[subscript:Because that's how it's played.]]"
* The first collection includes this nugget of gold in a letter from series creator Tad Stones, on the creation of Darkwing Duck:
** In the shadows of his hidden lair, Drake Mallard ponders his role in bringing justice to the city of St. Canard, "Criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot, so my disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts! I must be a creature of the night..." As if in answer, a duck flies in the open window. Mallard vaults to his feet. "It's an omen! I shall become a DUCK!" He pauses a moment and ponders further, "Wait, I AM a duck. How is this going to work?"
* F.O.W.L's gadgets in issue 10. [[spoiler: ESCPECIALLY the dartgun-watch!]]
* Also from issue 10:
-->'''Steelbeak''' That's right. There are the eggmen...\\
'''Steelbeak''' [[spoiler: And there is [[GiantRobot the]] [[ShoutOut Walrus]]! ]]
* When Cat-Tankerous is defeated in issue 14, he says "I can haz destruction?" Unfortunately, this one was omitted in the Joe Books omnibus.
