First AppearencesEdit


Duckman:What makes you think we're dysfuctional? Ajax: Look, Dad; I'm eating more fries than ever! Love me, Dad! Love me! Dr. Fox: Call it a hunch.

Duckman: It's shrinks that made this country touchy-feely! It's shrinks that blab and blab on Sally-Jesse so that teenage nymphomaniacs can't get a word in edgewise. It was shrinks that made me and Mom stop bathing together when I was 15--just when I needed her love the most!
