* BothSidesHaveAPoint: While Ted's quite right to point out that he's not actually a bigoted person and just happened to do an offensive impression at a ''really'' poor time, it's not too hard to understand why the Ying family aren't inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt, given that Ted never actually apologizes for his impression and instead tries to give lame excuses and rambling justifications for his actions.
