Anchorman trivia picture

Trivia: Brick kills a rival reporter by throwing a trident in a scene lifted from the first gladiator fight in Spartacus (1960).

Trivia: Before the cut to the restaurant scene with the newsroom ladies, the name of the restaurant can be seen on a neon sign. Part of the sign, in Spanish, says "We spit in your food."

Trivia: When Ed announces that a woman is coming to work at the station, Brick panics because he has heard that bears are attracted to the smell of their periods. Believe it or not, this is actually true of bears and lions.

Trivia: In the brawl, the two horsemen with the net between them come after Brian and drag him. This shot (and the accompanying music) comes straight from the Planet of the Apes, the original release.

Trivia: Near the beginning when Brian is reporting at the Panda exhibit, there is a sign with bamboo and a panda on it. It would appear that the panda is pole dancing (a dancing move common in strip bars) on the bamboo.

Trivia: When Champ throws another man into a car window during the fight sequence between the rival newsmen, the man yells a Wilhelm scream.

Continuity mistake: Right before the brawl, Brian pulls out a pistol which he also has right when the brawl begins. However, in the very next shot someone is swining a weapon down at him and he's holding nunchucks (play it on slow and you can see it's him).
