Spike: (grumbles in agreement)

Ducky: But, just in case, you go first.  


Cera: And I remember the day Dinah said her first words... or was it Dana? "Shiny peepeye no-no." Whatever that means.
Ducky: It is simple. That means "the bright circle is shining in my eyes and it hurts."
Cera: How'd you know that?
Ducky: I am also a twin. Thirteen of us hatched at the same time. Thirteen twins!
Cera: Well, then... what does "No-no Grampy three-dee grr" mean?
Ducky: That means "Never make Grandpa Three-Horn mad."
Cera: Are you sure about that one?
Ducky: No. But it is good advice just the same.

:Ducky: (Crawling along the log lodged at the top of the ditch) I do not like this. Oh no, no, no
Petrie: No problem. You a swimmer right?
Ducky: Mm-hmm.
Petrie: If you fall, there's skinny little river way down there you might land in. Maybe. (Ducky looks down and calculates the possibility)
Ducky: (sarcastically) Oh thank you, Petrie! I feel SO much better now.

Petrie: How come you not play?
Littlefoot: (sighing) I'm still upset about this morning, except for grandma and grandpa - nobody believes me.
Ducky: We believe you - right Spike? (Spike nods)
Ducky: Only er - Littlefoot, well, I can see the stone in the fire and the stone is cold. But - how can a stone which is cold be on fire? I do not understand - no, no, no.

:Ducky (most of the dinosaurs in the Great Valley are sleeping): Oh Spike, I cannot sleep. (Spike asks something to Ducky) No, I am not hungry. I am worried about Petrie. Friends should not make friends feel so bad, no, no, no. I am going to find Petrie! I am going to make things all better!
:Ducky: Help! Let me down!
Littlefoot (Waking up and gasping): Ducky!
Ducky: I am not a flier! (screams)

:Rinkus: Look, no-one's coming after us. Maybe we could leave her here and be on our way - yes?
Ducky: Oh I would not do that if I were you, no, no, no.
Rhinkus: Leave you behind?
Ducky: No, stand on the edge. (Rinkus on the edge of a rock crevice falls when the edge crumbles) Told him.

:Littlefoot: Well, at least we're all here. I mean - except for, Ducky. (Spike groans)

Petrie: Oh, poor Ducky.
Ducky: Oh, poor me.
