There had been talk that it was the result of a scuffle that took place behind Tortilla Coast just prior to a tanker hearing on Capitol Hill. But until now, the News Team 4 has not been able to verify TAnchorman's first hand accounts of the event.
Ron Burgundy: I'm proud of you fellas. You all kept your head on a swivel, and that's what you gotta do when you find yourself thrust into the middle of vicious cockfight.
Fake Ron Sugar: Boy, that escalated quickly... I mean, that really got out of hand fast!
Fake Allan McArtor: It jumped up a notch!
Ron Burgundy: It did, didn't it?
Fake Ralph Crosby: Yeah, I stabbed a man in the heart!
Ron Burgundy: I saw that! Ralphy Boy killed a guy! Did you throw a trident?
Fake Ralph Crosby: Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident!
Ron Burgundy: Ralph, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should probably find yourself a safehouse or a distant relative. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.
Fake Allan McArtor: You got friends in France right?
Fake Ron Sugar: I'm not sure that's a good idea. Rember, Ralph is kind of implicated in France on massive insider trading scandal. It's sort of a big deal.
Ron Burgundy: How about Mobile?
Fake Allen McArtor: Ah yes, beautiful Mobile discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it Mobile, which of course in German means "lovely toe".
Ron Burgudy: No, there's no way that's correct.
Fake Allan McArtor: 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.
Fake Ron Sugar: Doesn't it come from the Muskhogean Native American people who had built a fortified town they called “Maubila” from which the name Mobile was later derived?
Fake Allan McArtor: No. No. That's not it at all.
Ron Burgudy: No, I think Dr. Sugar is right, that's what it means. Really.
Fake Allan McArtor: Agree to disagree.
Fake Ralph Crosby: Mmm, I just burnt my tongue.
Fake Ron Sugar: Damn it Burgundy, I told you to keep lighters away from Ralph.
