Web exclusive: Will Ferrell on quotable lines from Anchorman 2

For more of our interview with actor Will Ferrell, watch CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" at 4 p.m. ET.

(CNN) - "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" hits theaters nationwide Wednesday. Fans of the first "Anchorman" quote lines from the movie all the time: "That escalated quickly." "60% of the time, it works every time." "I immediately regret this decision."

"We had no idea that the first one became so quotable," actor Will Ferrell said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper." "If you had told me that Ron Burgundy saying, 'Milk was a bad choice' would be a thing on t-shirts, I would have lost a lot of money betting on that."

"Steve Carell said he was watching Wimbledon one time, in the middle of a match, and in the quiet silence as someone is about to serve, a voice just yells out, 'Loud noises!'" said Ferrell.

So what are some of the gems from Anchorman 2?

"I couldn't venture to guess," said Ferrell.

"You never know. You can never predict what's going to be quoted," the actor says.
