Most Hilarious Anchorman Quotes

Updated on April 2, 2012

Arguably the most prolific work in terms of quote-worthiness since the Bible, Anchorman is one of those gems that you can’t fully appreciate until you’ve seen it at least three times. By that third time around it is done – every moment in life will suddenly warrant Ron Burgundy words of wisdom. Let’s take a closer look at some of Anchorman’s most memorable moments, in no particular order...

The Scotch

Ron Burgundy: I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly...

Ron enjoys a refreshment at the office.

The Trident

Brick Tamland: There were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident.

Ron Burgundy: Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.

Sex Panther

Brian Fantana: They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

Ron Burgundy: That doesn't make sense.


Ron Burgundy: It's so damn hot! Milk was a bad choice . . .

Ron regrets his beverage selection.

A Big Deal

Ron Burgundy: I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

The Wheel of Cheese

Ron Burgundy: You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that?

Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing.

The Lamp

Ron Burgundy: Brick, are you just looking at things in the office and saying that you love them?

Brick Tamland: I love lamp.

The Fight

Spanish News Anchor: Policias!

Enough said.


Champ Kind: What in the hell's diversity?

Ron Burgundy: Well, I could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.

Ed Harken: Ron, I would be surprised if the affiliates were concerned about the lack of an old, old wooden ship, but nice try.

The Baby Maker

Ron Burgundy: I'm gonna punch you in the ovary, that's what I'm gonna do. A straight shot. Right to the babymaker.

Veronica Corningstone: Ooh, ow.
