  • Scrooge's Paranoia Gambit on Glomgold at the end of Scrooge's Quest. Scrooge manages to drive his nemesis (who now has control of the city) to utter distraction simply by wandering around doing everyday things and continually referring to "that time." At one point, Flintheart totally messes up a restaurant he owns trying to uncover sabotage and, when Scrooge casually refers to "that time" again, he shrieks at his adversary to tell him what evil he's perpetrating.
  • One moment from the "Curse of Flabberge" story. Scrooge and Launchpad are both sitting in hospital beds after yet another crash.
    Launchpad: At least I crashed us near the hospital!
    Scrooge: Next time, just drop me off!
    Launchpad: Why is it that all of my friends eventually take up skydiving?
    (Launchpad ducks as Scrooge throws a clock at him)

  • This gem from the original game's Beta/Japanese ending:
  • The trailer for DuckTales Remastered starts off with a Quote Mine from renowned game designers. However, the last quote (from Tim Schafer) is "Please 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?
  • When Scrooge gets the Scepter of the Incan King, the natives reveal it was just the King's old backscratcher. Even the triplets feel like it's a backscratcher!
  • Scrooge has plenty of moments with Launchpad and Fenton Crackshell, 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:
    Dewey: Yeah, because an underground kingdom of creatures that causes earthquakes as part of a game is a completely rational explanation.
    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:
  • 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 #1 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 (not to mention all the other things he's ever done to Scrooge)... 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!"
  • Remastered gives each of the old songs some much needed flare, often fitting their themes (Amazon is tropical, Himalayas is rather tribal, the Mines have a Jazzy feel which fits the boss, the Moon has a Techno-Scifi vibe to it with a hint of nostalgia (due to its popularity). Transylvania, however, gets a techno-vibe, and to add to the weirdness, later on becomes dubstep. Yes, the haunted house gets dubstep. It's as crazy, hilarious, and awesome as it sounds.
  • One of the things Scrooge says upon finding a large diamond. It's all in how he stammers to finish the sentence:
    "That's a diamond the size of... buh-buh... Mrs. Beakly!"
  • Magica pointing out the obvious while she and Flintheart scuffle for Scrooge's #1 Dime due to poor phrasing on his partnote :
    Magica: Now, give me dime!
    Flintheart: Not until you give me those treasures! I want to be filthy stinkin' rich!
    Magica: You already are filthy stinkin' rich!
  • 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 agrees because he is in a generous mood. Scrooge then adds that their cones can actually have ice cream in them this time.
