Funny: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
  • I AM BLIND!
    • "Why did you do this to me, God?! Why couldn't you cure a disease or create a new animal?!"
    • While he's blind, the news team visits him and he laments that he can't do several things that he should still be able to do despite being blind. Brian seems to be the only one to realize this.
      Brian: Drinking half a bottle of ketchup takes like eight or nine gulps. How did you not know...
      Ron: Do I have to spell it out for you? I'M BUH-LIIIND!
  • Early on, Ron is driving the rest of the News Team out to NYC. Everyone is in the back drinking beers and shooting the shit while the camper is set on Cruise Control. The moment they realize that's not how cruise control works, they get into an accident where the camper (and everyone inside) is tossed around. In slow motion. Everyone but Brick is panicking and mugging; Brick goes through the air in a nonchalant lounging pose.
  • The climactic fight scene. ALL OF IT. They actually made it even more ridiculously over-the-top than the original.
    • To be precise, it started out as a two-team brawl between Ron's team and Jack's team similar to the first movie, but it then escalates into an epic brawl with the BBC News team, the MTV News team, the ESPN team, a Canadian news team, an entertainment news team, a history news team (including a minotaur and the ghost of Gen. Stonewall Jackson) and the WBC president who turns into a were-hyena. What follows is an epic battle with axes, cannons, Jackson stealing people's souls, fighter jets and Brick armed with a ray gun from the future!!
    • And he was holding his trident from the previous movie.
      Ron: ...Brick, what is that?
      Brick: [casually] It's a gun, from the future.
      Ron: Where did you get it?
      Brick: [laugh] This guy.....
    • Let's not forget all the crazy cameos with Sacha Baron Cohen as part of the BBC news team, Kanye West leading MTV, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler from the entertainment news team, Jim Carrey and Marion Cotillard from the apologetic Canadian team, Liam Neeson leading the history news team with John C. Reilly as Stonewall Jackson's ghost, and Will Smith from the ESPN news team, ending with Kirsten Dunst as a Greek goddess giving them the okay to start the brawl.
    • When the WBC president turns into a were-hyena, the MTV News head tells one of his crew to call Michael Jackson and tell him he has a music video idea.
      Champ: I hope he's on our side.
    • Brian using his Sex Panther cologne like a stink bomb and proceeds to knock everybody out with it. The smoke even forms the image of a real panther.
    • From the ending, as Ron makes it to Walter's recital.
      Ron: I fought a minotaur to get here and I'd do it again!
  • The entire subplot with Doby the shark.
  • Brick thinking he's dead and giving his own eulogy!
    Brick: When I got the news, I didn't even know how to make sense out of it!
    Ron: None of us do!
  • Brick's butter commercial.
  • "93! 93!"
    • Heck, that entire scene. Brick doesn't get why you shouldn't wear green pants when on a green-screen.
      Brick: Where's the map? I need a map.
      Ron: It's on the screen.
      Brick: Oh....WHERE ARE MY LEGS?! HOW AM I STANDING?! AAAAHHH!
  • Brian saying he's gonna go back to hanging out with O.J. Simpson, Phil Spector, and Robert Blake. Apparently, they call themselves "The Ladykillers."
  • Brick and his girlfriend making out in the laundromat, with her butt pressed against the window (while wearing men's briefs).
  • The scene where Ron and Linda have sex and the scene is intercut with clips of prominent moments in understanding between white and black people...Jackie Robinson...Captain Kirk kissing Lt. Uhura...and Diff'rent Strokes.
  • Champ's new fried chicken joint serves fried bat. He calls them "the chicken of the cave".
    • "You know what they call cats don't you? Chicken of the rail yard!"
  • Ron's dinner with Linda's family, which culminates in him calling them "pipe-hittin' bitches".
  • "LET'S LEAVE AND GO HAVE INTERRACIAL SEX!"
  • "A black man follows me everywhere when it's sunny! I call him Leon."
    • "What happens when it's cloudy?"
    • "He goes home."
  • When Brick and Chani have a date, Brian suggests that Brick use one of his (many) condoms. Specifically, he brags about how proud he is that the condom was responsible for four illegitimate children.
    Ron: But...isn't the purpose of a condom to prevent pregnancy?
    Brian: Well Ron, to quote the old saying, nope.
  • Veronica chewing out Ron for taking their son to bet on cockfights as a "bonding activity".
    Ron: He picked eight winning cocks, it's never been done!
  • "Hey Ron! You're missing some quality Garfield!"
  • The slow-mo Winnebago crash.
  • "BY THE HYMEN OF OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN!"
    • Also, "BY THE BEDPAN OF GENE RAYBURN!"
  • The Incredibly Polite Canadian News Team, eh?
  • The Ron, Champ and Brian's piece on crack's recent popularity, titled "Vials of Smiles". They proceed to samples of crack live in the studio.
    Ron: I understand we have some crack, and we're going to smoke it here in the studio. [Inhales] Woah. Wow, wow, you can feel that right away. Now that is just refreshing. (goes to light the pipe)
    (Smash Cut to the entire news team face-down on the pavement outside, being arrested)
  • Bricks speech at the ending
    Brick: Ron, you are a good man, but you have fallen victim to your own ego and hubris. Now, you have taken steps towards righting the wrongs you have done. But before others can forgive you, you must journey inside and forgive yourself.
    Ron: ...Brick, what'd you just say?
    Brick: I'm wearing two kinds of pants.
  • We spend the whole movie convinced that Ron just thinks Gary has psychic powers because Ron is confused by the term psychologist.Then out of nowhere during the brawl, Gary saves Ron with Telekinesis.
  • Ron's high pitched screaming at the beginning, "They're coming in through the back door. Grab the children. Save the children."
