[series theme song] Chorus: Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg / Racecars, lasers, aeroplanes, it's a duck-blur! / Might solve a mystery, or rewrite history! / DuckTales! Woo-oo! / Everyday they're out there making DuckTales! Woo-oo! / Tales of derring-do bad and good luck tales! Woo-oo! / D-d-d-danger lurks behind you / there's a stranger out to find you! What to do, just grab on to some... DuckTales! Woo-oo! / Everyday they're out there making DuckTales! Woo-oo! / Tales of derring-do bad and good luck tales! Woo-oo! / Not pony tales or cotton tales / no, DuckTales! Woo-oo!

Launchpad McQuack: C'mon, even E.T got to phone home.
Scrooge McDuck: Forget the study! You can never tell a thing about a man by his study, I always say.
Scrooge McDuck: You can perform an action replay of your crash later, Launchpad!
Scrooge McDuck: Ships are for shipping, Mr. Woddell, so ship up or shape out! Webby: [impersonating Scrooge] "So shape up, or ship out!" Scrooge McDuck: Urrr, that wasn't very nice of me to talk to Mr Woddell that way, I'll phone him back and apologise.
Scrooge McDuck: Since I'm the richest duck in the world, I am going to celebrate by taking everyone out the world's biggest hamburger stand! Webby: Can we order fries? Scrooge McDuck: You can even order hamburgers!
Launchpad McQuack: NASA's gonna send the monkey into space instead of me! [sigh]
