Delightful Dialogue: Anchorman

Ron Burgundy: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.

Veronica Corningstone: No, there's no way that's correct.

Ron Burgundy: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

Veronica Corningstone: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?

Ron Burgundy: No. No.

Veronica Corningstone: No, that's - that's what it means. Really.

Ron Burgundy: Agree to disagree.

~ Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

Us too Christina! The bloopers of this scene are some of the funniest we've ever seen! Will just can't get out the word vagina without laughing!

1904? Why that's the same year the coffee table was invented. Must have a good year for germans.
