but Daniel's "hugs and kisses" gave her the "comfort and confidence" she needed to make it through.

If Dr Dave refuses to pay the bill for that pun, GenYus, it's because he never got it. (Eider said something about its being "lost on the wing" but you'd have thought I was quackers.)

Support ducks start out "funny and sweet". Then one day out of the blue they start making offensive jokes on Twitter.
