Opus: Why don't penguins have wings that work?

[holding out his hand]

Opus: This, you call this a wing? This is a bad joke, this is built in obsolescence, I'm an insult, I might as well be a dung beetle or a fly infested, worm infused, molded mildewed scrap of rotten banana!... or a network executive.

George the Kiwi: ALBATROSS. Just be glad your wife didn't leave you for an albatross.

Ronald-Anne: Good, George, confront your feelings.

George the Kiwi: My puny kiwi wings weren't big enough for Delores. Oh no, oh no... she had to have AN ALBATROSS. With great big huge LONG WINGS. He was on hormones. You heard me, read my beak: HORMONES.

Opus: Uh, maybe we shouldn't confront those particular feelings.

Duck #2: Honey, I'll be taking lunch on the moon today.

Duck #3: What's the red thing on the neck? Turbo prop? So where's the exhaust? Don't answer that.

Duck #1: Note the mighty wings. I suspect they sputter more than flutter. (They all laugh)

Opus: They're obviously jealous of my nose. Anybody would be.
