Howard the Duck (1986)
Dr. Jenning: It was just a routine procedure, meant to measure the density of the gases that surround Alpha Centauri. However, partway through the experiment, there was a deviation, and, uh... we lost control of the laser spectroscope.
Howard T. Duck: What do you mean, "lost control"?
Dr. Jenning: Some unknown force was redirecting the laser beam from its original target, so that it hit your planet instead.
Howard T. Duck: Hit my planet? How about 'hit my living room'? Talk about an invasion of privacy!

Phil Blumburtt: [working on the ultralight] Did you find the toolbox?

[Pats the bed]
Howard T. Duck: Okie-dookie.

Howard T. Duck: [to Bev] Of all the alleys in the world I could have fallen into that night, why did it have to be yours?

Beverly: Hiya, Duckie.
Howard T. Duck: Hi, Toots.

[Jenning has almost crashed into a diner]

Howard T. Duck: Try telling that to your insurance company.

Beverly: I'm sorry I'm so nervous. It's just that I've never been around a... Um, I mean, I've never even had any pets or anything, you know. They seem like such a hassle - you know, feeding 'em, cleaning up their little poo-poos, and...
Howard T. Duck: I'll try to be careful.

Beverly: Make yourself at home.
Howard T. Duck: Make myself at home? I wish.

Howard T. Duck: Bev, I am not a real sentimental guy.
Beverly: No. I bet you were born from a very hard-boiled egg, Duckie.

Howard T. Duck: I can't believe this planet. Fried eggs - yuck!

[last lines]
Howard T. Duck: Not bad for a duck from outer space.
Beverly: You were great, Duckie!

Howard T. Duck: Goodbye, Duckworld.

Howard T. Duck: I'm a dead duck!

Beverly: Listen, would you like something to eat or drink? Milk? I could put it in a bowl?
Howard T. Duck: Doll, I don't drink out of bowls. Do you gotta beer?

Phil Blumburtt: I've already got a theory.
Beverly: What theory?
Phil Blumburtt: Well, this is, of course, the evolutionary ladder showing how man progressed from monkey to me, for instance.
Howard T. Duck: You consider that progress? Jeez, you're all hairless apes? That's really disgusting.
Phil Blumburtt: Now, I want you both to imagine, somewhere in the universe, is Howard's world. Picture it, in your mind, a world almost exactly like ours except the progenitor of the dominant species was not a monkey - but, a duck!

Howard T. Duck: Maybe it's not a man you should be looking for.
Beverly: Ah, you think I might find happiness in the animal kingdom, Duckie?
Howard T. Duck: Like they say, Doll, love's strange. We could always give it a try.
Beverly: Okay, let's go for it Mr. Macho.

Beverly: You play pretty good.
Howard T. Duck: I had a group in high school: Howard and the Heartbreakers.
Beverly: Oh, heavy, Howard. Very heavy. Maybe you should be our manager. Wait a second. Maybe you're just the kind of bizarro influence we need!

Howard T. Duck: On my planet, we never say die - we say kill!

Howard T. Duck: Aren't you going to see me off?
Beverly: Sure I am. I just hope they let you take a carry-on bag. Look, I'm gonna put in these polaroids that we took at the club.

Beverly: [Picks up a handful of feathers] What's this in my bed?
Howard T. Duck: Ah, souvenirs?
Beverly: I'm gonna miss you a lot, Duckie.

Howard T. Duck: I need this like I need another tail.

Howard T. Duck: It's alright, Toots.
