Darkwing is competing in a wrestling match and is getting beat up when Launchpad sees Quackerjack come out of the ticket office with a bag telling them not to try and stop him. Launchpad helps Darkwing and Darkwing tells him to take his place while he goes to stop Quackerjack.
Darkwing grabs a hold of Quakcerjack's motorized shoe but is thrown off. Meanwhile, Launchpad has subdued his opponent in a pinkie hold and wins the match when Quackerjack crashes into the arena and Darkwing accuses him of stealing the ticket money. The money turns out to be play money and Darkwing is ridiculed by the crowd.
Darkwing is moping after the match in the arena after everyone has left except Gosalyn and Launchpad when a stranger shows up and tells Darkwing that Quackerjack is going to rob a bank and use a bomb hidden in a chicken. It's obvious that the disguised Quackerjack is the stranger who is giving Darkwing false information. Gosalyn questions weather Darkwing can trust the guy, but Darkwing insists that it is the only way to get Quackerjack. Quackerjack shows up at the bank with a rubber chicken and throws it at the guard's feet. Darkwing dives on it thinking that it's a real bomb, but it's not and once again Quackerjack has made a fool of him. Darkwing stays on top of the chicken until Gosalyn and Launchpad show up to prove to him that it's not a real bomb. As Darkwing and Gosalyn walk home, Quackerjack in disguise shows up again but this time he is playing the part of a psychiatrist. He tells Darkwing that he can help him and wants to see him the next day. He leaves and Gosalyn is again suspicious but Darkwing is not.
Darkwing and another gentleman by the name of Mr. Meekles meet the disguised Quackerjack and Quackerjack begins a series of tests on the both of them. At the end of the tests he tells Darkwing that he should be serving tea at social functions and that Mr. Meekles should be the one fighting crime. Darkwing is dejected and throws away his costume once he gets home and resigns himself to serving tea.
Quackerjack goes back to the arena to rob it for real since he has changed Darkwing's occupation and doesn't have to worry about him interfering. Launchpad has also been challenged to a re-match but is tricked and has to wrestle a snake which has no pinkies.
Meanwhile, Drake is serving tea at a poetry society and mayhem ensues.
Quackerjack busts into the safe and grabs the money. Then Mr. Meekles shows up in Darkwing's outfit (which doesn't exactly fit him) and tries to stop Quackerjack. He is easily tossed out of the room and into a trash can. Then Launchpad and Gosalyn walk in and Quackerjack knocks Launchpad out with a springloaded boxing glove. He kidnaps Gosalyn and Mr. Meekles shows up to try and stop him again and messes up again, leading to Quackerjack to escape with Gosalyn and money.
Drake is moping on a bridge when Mr. Meekles shows up to end it all and Drake stops him. Unfortunately when Mr. Meekles threw the rock over the rope catches Drake and he lands in the river.
Launchpad comes by in the Thunderquack and rescues Drake, telling him about Gosalyn's kidnapping and Drake decides it's time for him to become Darkwing Duck once again.
Meanwhile, Quackerjack is terrorizing the town with his new toy, Terror Teddy, a giant robot teddy bear. He has Gosalyn in the bear with him and Darkwing and Launchpad show up. The Terror Teddy knocks Darkwing off the Thunderquack and eats Darkwing. Quackerjack decides it's time to finish off Gosalyn and tells Teddy to finish her. Darkwing gets out of Terror Teddy and stops Teddy from getting Gosalyn. He uses Quackerjack's hypno-gun on him and does to Quackerjack what Quackerjack had done to him. Darkwing is now convinced that he will always be a crime fighter and nothing else.
