Memorable quotesEdit

Darkwing: You're right! Putting on this suit, sitting in this cockpit with my family, it reminds me that St. Canard needs its protector! I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the passive-aggressive note left on the employee breakroom refrigerator, typed in Comic Sans!
Gosalyn: Oh yeah!
Darkwing: I am DARKWING DUCK!
Launchpad: It's good to hear ya say that, D.W. There, uh... there aren't exactly a lot of positions open for sidekicks/pilots.
[Just the other day...]
Launchpad: [holding up the Ranger Plane] I can pilot this!
Gadget: No. No you cannot.
