Will Ferrell Quotes

Saturday, August 27 by Jared Skye

While being interviewed by a reporter during his heyday, Michaels describes his personal philosophy on life. This quote is, of course, before Chazz becomes a complete failure.

Ron Burgundy ("Anchorman")—"I'm in a glass case of emotion!" Ron Burgundy has become one of Will Ferrell's most recognizable personas since "Anchorman" hit theaters. This quote is from the part in the move where he goes nuts after losing Veronica, flying into a screaming fit in a phone booth.

Ricky Bobby ("Talladega Nights")—"I hope that both of you have sons… Handsome, beautiful articulate sons, who are talented and star athletes and they have their leg taken away. I mean, I pray you know that pain and that hurt." When Ricky Bobby thinks he's paralyzed in the hospital, he starts cursing the children of everyone around him who can still walk. It's another example of how Will Ferrell characters are generally childish and ridiculous.

Chazz Reinhold ("Wedding Crashers")—"Grief is nature's most powerful aphrodesiac." Chazz was a strange and uncomfortable character in "Wedding Crashers." He says this just before he crashes a funeral reception to try and pick up women.

Ricky Bobby ("Talladega Nights")—"If you ain't first, you're last!" The main, driving, ridiculous quote that is repeated over and over again in "Talladega Nights," which is also one of the funniest quotes. Learned from his father at a young age, Ricky Bobby uses the quote as something like a mantra in his life.

Ron Burgundy ("Anchorman")—“You’re so wise. You’re like a miniature Buddha covered with hair.” Ron often speaks to his dog as though he can understand what the's saying, sometimes gaining sage wisdom from the mutt. The relationship between Ron and his dog is the most comfortable one in the entire movie.

Ricky Bobby ("Talladega Nights")—“Dear Lord Baby Jesus, I want to thank you for this wonderful meal, my two beautiful sons, Walker and Texas Ranger, and my red hot smokin’ wife, Carley.” During dinner, Ricky Bobby keeps referencing Jesus as a baby and not a grown man, driving his step-father crazy. Everyone goes into their favorite way to imagine Jesus.

Harry Caray ("Saturday Night Live")—“Hey! Would you eat the moon if it were made of ribs?” During this skit from SNL, Will Ferrell plays Harry Caray asking Jeff Goldblum's physicist character under what circumstances he would eat the moon. He says he would eat it and wash it down with a beer.

The Devil ("Saturday Night Live")—"There's a guy name Fred and he's got a pair of slacks. Oooh, Fred's got slacks. They're long and a little tight in the waist. Ooh, Fred's got slacks on the boulevard." Will Ferrell as the Devil giving Garth Brooks the song that will launch him into immortal fame. This is typical Will Ferrell, playing an embarrassed and loud malcontent trying his best to be impressive but failing miserably.
