Fridge: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Fridge Brilliance

  • When Champ taunts Wes Mantooth about his mother and manages to break his composure, Ron Burgundy looks a bit disturbed and suggests leaving mothers out of it. In a deleted scene, it's revealed that Ron and Wes are half-brothers, so Champ was insulting Ron's mother as well. It's also stated in the film as well, with Ron calling Wes Mantooth "brother" after he escapes the bear pit.
