He is a child, Ron!

Nah, nah, nah!

He's got hair on his nugs.

He's old enough to hear this.

Your father is a wise man.

I will lock you in a closet!

Veronica, here's the bottom line.

It's a very simple decision.

It's either me or the job.

It doesn't have to

be a choice, Ron.

Don't do this.

Don't throw away everything that

we've worked so hard for.


...or the job.


Hello, and welcome

to the 3:
10 Dolphin

Show at Sea World.

Sponsored by British Petroleum.

B.P. Oil, nature's best friend.

And now, here's your host,

Ron Burgundy.

Good afternoon, everyone.

And welcome to

world-famous Sea World,

here in San Diago, California.

Here's a fun fact, dolphins

aren't fish. They're mammals.

Here's another fun fact,

I haven't felt the loving embrace of

a human being in over three months.


I'm so lonely I paid a

hobo to spoon with me.

Let's bring out our

world-class trainers here,

Jesse and Paula.


Thank you. Thank you, Ron.

Sometimes I try to kiss 'em.


Oh, Ron Burgundy, everyone.

- I want to kiss you.

- No.

- Or I'll kiss your friend.

- No.

How about the two

trainers kiss each other?

What do you say, huh?

So, let's say hello to the stars

of the show, Chippy and Roo-roo!

For your information,

Chippy was rehabilitated

and Roo-roo is an asshole.


Look, they're swimming

and doing tricks!

Folks, what do you expect?

They're dolphins.



What did you say?

Look at you, with

that permanent smile.

You think you're so smart,

with your secret language.

You just fan' out of the

top of your head.



- You're a punk, Ron Burgundy!

- Boo!

Children and animals hate you,
