Scrooge’s and Ms Quackfaster’s relationship:

Scrooge:Ms Quackfaster! My friend, my buddy, my dearest companion! What are you doing? What are you planning to give me for Christmas? Oh by the way I need someone to go shopping with me and Donald is busy.
Ms. Quackfaster: Nghhgh. Your undying friendship is nice and all but could I get a raise? It’d be nice to afford food.
Scrooge: Nope! 🙂
