* ShoutOut: Burgundy finishes his jazz flute performance with the flute riff from {{Jethro Tull}}'s Aqualung. He even bellows the song title, like Ian Anderson does in the original.

* NoExceptYes: Literally with Brick. After hitting on Veronica using a line supplied by Brian, she asks if Brian told him to say it. Brick quickly says "No, yes."

Added DiffLines:

It is [[TheSeventies the 1970s]], the age of strange haircuts, polyester, wide lapels, and swinging bachelors. Ron Burgundy is the top anchor of the #1 news program in San Diego, and respected throughout the city. He is somewhat demanding.

One day, due to a lack of diversity, Ron's boss (who is having problems with his son doing dangerous things) hires a new female co-anchor, Veronica Corningstone. Burgundy (like most males in the film) is sexist, and so it's near-hatred at first sight. It doesn't help that the gorgeous lady wants to be a serious newscaster, but is assigned stories about cat fashion shows.
