10 Funny Anchorman Quotes

Anchorman Quotes

Is any film more quoted on the Web than ‘Anchorman’? Even though it came out way back in 2004, the all-star cast of Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and pretty much every other hilarious comedic actor in Hollywood has made ‘Anchorman’ a cult classic.

The highly quoteable dialogue, courtesy of cowriters Ferrell and Adam McKay, doesn’t hurt either. Whether it’s Steve Carell’s dimwitted newscaster Brick declaring his love for “lamp” or the oft-referenced “Wow, that escalated quickly” (popular on message boards when fights break out), quoting from ‘Anchorman’ has become part of how we communicate on the Web.

Take a look at 10 of the funniest ‘Anchorman’ quotes. And stay classy, internet.
