Launchpad McQuack: [on radio] Hey, I heard that!

Launchpad McQuack: [on radio] You haven't stumbled across a pizza joint down there, have ya, Mr McDee? I'm getting kinda hungry up here...

Launchpad McQuack: That's a good question!
Scrooge McDuck: Well, I don't have all day! What was your thought?
Launchpad McQuack: Come to think of it... I forgot.

Flintheart Glomgold: More like lickety-splat!
Scrooge McDuck: Glomgold!
Flintheart Glomgold: Nice to see ye, McDuck! Especially since you've led me right to the treasure! To whom do I owe my thanks - your idiotic pilot, or did yeh play it safe and let those two wee ones fly the plane?

Scrooge McDuck: Aye, the poor creature was standing on it! Webby, I cannae thank you enough! I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. Without your help we never would have found the treasure! Oh, and thanks to you too, ma'am!
[the yeti roars]
Webby: [giggles] I think she likes you, Uncle Scrooge!
Launchpad McQuack: That's odd, usually it's me the ladies go gaga for...

Launchpad McQuack: It was real swell of you to give Glomgold a lift home, Mr McD!
[Glomgold and the Beagle Boys are in a paddy wagon]
