Funny: DuckTales
     TV Show 
  • From the first episode:
    Nephews: We missed ya, Unca Scrooge!
    Scrooge: Missed me? What'd you throw at me?
  • The infamous "A SEA MONSTER ATE MY ICE CREAM!!!!!!", which consists of Scrooge flipping out over hearing such news (since it was actually half his fortune), repeatedly screaming the above phrase and bouncing on the breakfast table on his head.
    Ms. Beakly: That must've been some ice cream.
    • His nephews were forced to strap him in a makeshift straightjacket, which calmed him down, and he then proceeded to hop away determined to get his fortune back.
  • Gladstone freaking out after Magica de Spell curses him with bad luck in "Dime Enough for Luck". "I don't believe it! I've lost my luck! No food... no money... gasp! I'll have to get a job like normal people!!"
  • From "Sweet Duck of Youth": Looking into the fountain of youth shows the person as they looked when they were younger. For the triplets, the reflection is just three giant eggs staring back at them.
    Dewey: We haven't even hatched yet!
    • Not to mention Launchpad's reaction to seeing himself as he younger self from an earlier episode!
    Launchpad: Oh no! Now I'll have to start all over!
  • From "Super Ducktales":
    • Fenton's attempts to get the bag of dimes from the Beagles. All of them.
    • Ma Beagle: [chasing Huey, Dewey & Louie] Come back with that cash!
      Burger: [follows] Come back with those desserts!
    • "It's thieves like them who are making the world a rotten place to live for thieves like us!"
    • "If ya don't like how I drive, stay out of the hallway!"
  • "But I'm too young to die! And too nice! And much, much too nervous!"
    • Later in that same episode:
    Scrooge: What's going on? High noon isn't for another hour!
    General Chiquita: I thought I would save you needless anguish by moving up the execution.
    Fenton: Bu-but I was just starting to enjoy my anguish!
  • "This'll make a nice cover photo for Duckweek - Scrooge and his nephews... [Burger turns back to normal] ...playing Beagle Boys and Indians. ...BEAGLE BOYS??!"
    • Earlier from the episode.
    Scrooge: My nephews and I just love to play cowboys and Indians Woo-woo-woo-woo! Woo-woo-woo-woo!!
  • From "Nothing to Fear":
    Scrooge: Duckworth? Why are you standing in the closet?
    Duckworth: [clears throat, whispers] Because there's no limo monster in here, sir.
    [Door closes]
    Scrooge: Well, I guess he has a point.
    • At the climax:
    Huey: We're not afraid of you, Ms. Quackenbush! We did our homework!
    Nightmare Quackenbush: Oh. Sorry! [Vanishes]
  • Scrooge is performing a ship christening:
    Scrooge: Is this cheap champagne?
    Duckworth: The cheapest, sir.
    • The best part is that he pauses in midswing to ask.
  • "The Ducky Horror Picture Show"
    Scrooge: Huey, Dewey... [the Blob slithers down the stairs] Yucky!
    [the Blob slithers over him, covering Scrooge in slime]
    Scrooge: Eck! I've been slimed by the Blob!
    Duckworth: There's a first time for everything, sir.

    Quackymodo: Hey McDuck, you want to Blob for apples? HA HA HA HA HA! [pointing at a bucket of apples floating in green slime]
    [The slime is the Blob who's eating the apples]
    Scrooge: Yuck!
  • The ending to "Take Me Out Of The Ballgame" - Doofus hits the baseball so hard that it travels halfway across the world to Europe and beans Launchpad in the head, knocking him out and causing a crash landing.
  • In "Duck to the Future":
    Scrooge: Gyro, it's me! Scrooge McDuck!
    Old!Gyro: (shakes Scrooge's hand) Please to meet you. What can I do for you?
    Scrooge: You got to help me, Gyro. What happened to your Time Tub?
    Old!Gyro: I give up. What?
    Scrooge: Think!
    Old!Gyro: Oh yeah, it's over there. I turned it into a bird bath.
    Scrooge: You got to fix it! I gotta get back to the past!
    Old!Gyro: Who are you?
    Scrooge: SCROOGE MCDUCK!!!
    Old!Gyro: Please to meet you. What can I do for you?
    Scrooge: *Face Palm* Great scotts!

    Scrooge: Will the Time Tub work?
    Old!Gyro: Will what work?
    Scrooge: This bird bath!
    Old!Gyro: This isn't a bird bath, it's a Time Tub.
    Scrooge: I don't care what it is! Just get me back to the past!
  • In "The Duck in the Iron Mask," Dewey gets upset when the announcer at their baseball game calls him "Huey."
    Dewey: I'm sick of people getting us mixed up all the time!
    Louie: Aw, don't let it bother ya', Huey.
    Huey: I'm Huey!
    Louie: I know — I couldn't resist!
  • In "The Golden Fleecing," Launchpad's therapist is Ludwig Von Drake — that alone is funny! But then Ludwig goes on to diagnoses him as a cuckoo and tells him a special method (which is just "om"-ing with eyes closed). By the end, both are on the couch "om"-ing after seeing a harpy.
  • Scrooge's Imagine Spot of his money floating away and everyone stealing it when Gyro considers inventing a flotation ray at the end of "The Money Vanishes".
  • "Scrooge's Last Adventure" has a very hilarious Running Gag for the episode. First, Huey, Dewey and Louie resort to Plan B when the clockmaker insists that he can't fix the grandfather clock they accidentally broke. Evidentally, Plan B is throwing a tantrum until the clockmaker gives in. Later, Fenton Crackshell tries to get Scrooge to let him help in recovering his money from cyberspace. When Scrooge refuses, Fenton resorts to his Plan B, which is also throwing a tantrum until Scrooge gives in. Finally, Scrooge throws a tantrum after all he's been through and his grandnephews ask how he knew about Plan B.
  • Scrooge's breakdown in "The Land of Trala La" where he begins acting like a squirrel. His psychiatrist explains that all the stress having to do with money is what's lead to it and the best cure is him getting away from money for a while. She manages to temporarily calm him down, until he sees how much her fee is, which immediately leads him to having another breakdown and start acting like a squirrel all over again.
    Fenton: You're a very sick doctor!

     Video Games 
  • The trailer for DuckTales Remastered starts off with a Quote Mine from Capcom employees. However, the last quote (from Tim Schafer) is "Stop e-mailing me for a quote".
  • Apparently, Launchpad was dropped on his head all the time as a child. Explains a lot, doesn't it?
    Launchpad: Mr. McD, I just had a thought.
    Scrooge: Launchpad, why start now and ruin a perfect record?
  • Scrooge has plenty of moments with Launchpad and Fenton Crackshell, really. Mostly in the form of being a Deadpan Snarker who sometimes tosses Stealth Insults.
  • This excerpt from the intro to the Transylvania level.
    Scrooge: Dinnae worry. I'll be back with the coin before you can say "E Pluribus Unum." note 
    Hewey: Ee purple bus who-um?
    Louie: Yeah. I'm not sure that's as fast as you think it is.
  • The face Scrooge makes in the Himalayas, when he gets stuck in the snow.
    • It gets better, he makes that face on the picture in the music gallery for the modern!remix of the song.
  • During the mini-boss battle with Flintheart Glomgold in the Himalayas level, Webby sometimes says to Scrooge "Pretend he's a door-to-door salesman!"
    • In the same scene, Launchpad might sometimes say "Usually, for a ride like this, you'd have to buy a ticket."
  • SKOOGE SAVE BUBBA! SKOOGE SAVE BUBBA! SKOOGE SAVE BUBBA! (Said while Bubba swings his club around with glee...including on Scrooge's foot!)
  • Some of Magica's taunts during her boss battle, when she uses her lightning bolt spell.
    Magica: Fried Scrooge, order up!
    Magica: This will add sizzle to your sunset years!
    • Her monologue after her defeat is pretty good, too:
    Magica: Blast these inferior mirror and beam spells! Is last time I shop for spell ingredients at discount store!
  • The post-level conversations that Scrooge has with his nephews have some entertaining moments. For instance, there's the one that takes place after African Mines, where Scrooge tells the boys that it was silly to think that a ghost was the source of the mysterious voices in the diamond mines—that there's always a rational explanation for this sort of thing. Dewey immediately lampshades the real reason for the voices:
    Scrooge: (Sheepishly) Er...aye. Never mind, boys. The point is, we found the Diamond of the Inner Earth, and gained a whole diamond mine in the process!
  • In the African Mines, Scrooge delivers a few good lines while getting fed up with the nephews' insistence that there's a ghost haunting the mines:
    Scrooge: If I hear one more word about these mines being haunted, I'll start haunting them meself!
  • On the Moon, Scrooge has some rather amusing remarks while tracking down the pieces of the Gizmoduck suit:
    Scrooge: ...I've always wondered what Gyro was thinking when he designed this thing; who fights crime with a unicycle?
  • During the final level in Mt. Vesuvius, when Scrooge and Glomgold are working together to get to Magica De Spell so Scrooge can give her his Number One Dime to save his nephews (with Glomgold being convinced to help Scrooge in exchange for the treasures that were being collected all this time), there's one point where you have to get ahead by pogo-jumping on a heavy rock that Glomgold's holding up...and you can keep bouncing on the rock for a good long while. Make no mistake, it's a pretty mean thing to do. But then again, no one can deny that the corrupt old coot had it coming, especially after he held Scrooge's nephews hostage so that Scrooge would fork over the treasures to him in the first place...before Magica stepped in.
  • Glomgold clinging to Vulture!Magica's leg as she flies from Mt. Vesuvius
    "Let go of me, you doddering old deadweight!"
    "Oh, pipe down, you mangy bird."
  • Duckworth summons safes for you to drop on Big Time Beagle in the first boss fight. And his priorities are... somewhat skewed:
    "Do be careful, sir! You'll scuff the floor!"
  • In the ending, Scrooge takes Huey, Dewey, and Louie out for ice cream. When his grandnephews ask him if they can get their own individual cones this time, Scrooge complies because he is in a generous mood. Scrooge then adds that their cones can actually have ice cream in them this time.
