SCENE 5
When Mumford says his magic words "À-la peanut butter sandwiches on quackers" backwards, Maria finally speaks normally, but now Mumford and the duck have their voices switched!

Notes

  • In later episodes, when Maria encounters Mumford, she tries to keep her distance from him, often citing his duck trick as the key reason for her not trusting him. One such example occurs in episode 2341.
