"Let's get dangerous!"
"Suck gas, Evildoer!" (usually said before firing his trademark gas pistol)
"The worst part of public transportation is the public."
"You'd think criminal masterminds would be more punctual!"
(Drake is dressing as Darkwing for the first time.) "Now all I need is a name: something that with conjure up the fear of a dark moonless night, the speed of an eagle’s wing – something like: The really scary fast thing!"
"Gosalyn, after I wake up, and have my morning cup of coffee, remind me to punish you. Severely."

(as Drake) "Let's get decorative!"
"In the Negaverse, there was never a Darkwing Duck to guard the city...(gulps) or a Drake Mallard to be a father, (hugs Negaverse-Gosalyn) so for you, Gosalyn...I'll stay..."
