Funny / Ted

Go To

  • For starters, the "Thunder Buddies" song.
  • Young John Bennett is eager to show his parents his newly sapient talking teddy bear. They react with the surprise and wonder one would expect: "JESUS H. FUCK!"
    • "Is it a hugging gun?"
  • "You owe me lobster money!"
  • Young Ted matching comic wits with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show:
    Carson: I thought you were going to be taller.
    Ted: I thought you were going to be funnier!
  • Ted and John's first meeting with Donny and Robert in the park stands out due to a truly incredible delivery by Mark Wahlberg:
    Robert: Stand up straight when you're talking to me!
    John: (Simultaneously disgusted and perplexed) Why the fuck would he say that?!

  • John knocks a heckler in the face with the mic stand as he poorly serenades Lori. Later, he punches Robert out as he runs toward him.
    John: Well someone had to go Joan Crawford on that kid.
  • The party at Ted's place. Especially when the Chinese Guy shows up.
    Ted: (drawing on a woman's boobs) See! I told you Garfield's eyes look like a pair of tits!
  • While Ted was being carried over away from the crazy people's house:
    Ted: I can hear the fat kid running. I hear him running, and that's hilarious. LEMME OUT!!!
    • Ted referring to said "fat kid" as "Susan Boyle" and "Tubby McFatFuck".
  • When Ted was talking to John over the phone after being kidnapped by Donny.
    Ted: They got me, that freaky guy from the park, and that kid who I think is his son, but may also be his lover, I don't know.
  • Young John is so unpopular, even the Jewish kid getting beaten up by the neighborhood kids tells him to go away.
  • Patrick Stewart actually saying the line, "Now if there's one thing you can be sure of, it's that nothing is more powerful than a young boy's wish...Except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns and missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive compliment of weaponry; an absolute death machine."
    Eventually, nobody gives a shit.
    • All of his lines are hilarious. Mostly because with his voice saying anything ridiculous is automatically funny.
  • The "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue
    • Rex died of Lou Gehrig's disease!
    • Donny was arrested for kidnapping a teddy bear, then released because of how incredibly stupid that sounded.
    • Robert got a trainer, lost weight and became Taylor Lautner.
  • A Deep South newscaster reports on Ted coming to life: "LOOK WHAT JESUS DID! LOOK WHAT JESUS DID!"
  • Some of Ted's brands of weed, including "Mind Rape", "Gorilla Panic," "They're Coming, They're Coming" and "This is Permanent."
  • "Yeah whatever, thanks for 9/11."
  • Ted's job interview.
    Frank: You think you got what it takes?
    Ted: I'll tell you what I got. Your wife's pussy on my breath.
    Frank: Nobody's ever spoken to me like that before.
    Ted: That's because their mouths were full of your wife's box.
    Frank: You're hired.
    Ted: Shit.
    • The TV trailer version is also amusing: "Your wife's panties on my floor." That said, hearing the movie version makes the real line much funnier.
    • From there, the multiple times Ted curses out his boss, has sex with his girlfriend on the produce, and gets promoted for it.
    Ted: I fucked her with a parsnip last week. And I sold the parsnip to a family with four small children.
    Boss: That took guts. We need guts. I'm promoting you.
    Ted: You got a lot of problems, don't ya?

  • Lori calls John's phone... and it plays "The Imperial March"
    Lori: Is that my ringtone? What is that? Cause it sounds really negative.
    John: No. I-it's from The Notebook.
    • Or is there a floor on the shit?
    • John freaking out when Lori tries to pick up the poop, while standing far away from it and started gagging.
  • "You can't have your pudding if you don't eat your meat!"
  • "Hello, 911? This is an emergency! This man stole my teddy bear!"
    • And the cop hangs up.
  • "Stick ya fuckin' asshole up ya fuckin' ass!"
  • "I do not sound that much like Peter Griffin."
  • "I just farted. That was a man fart."
    • Funny enough, he actually did fart, with it being aimed at abunch of businesspeople. Their reactions are priceless.
  • John listing every single trashy name he can think of while guessing Ted's new girlfriend's name at high speed.
  • (on the hood of the car) "Hey, John? Total TJ Hooker, right!?"
  • "Do I need to wash my hands before playing this game?" "'s a weird fucking question. No, just start counting!"
  • Ted voicing the two fish in the fish tank. The second fish he even voiced in as Stewie Griffin.
  • In the extended version, Tammy Lynn attacking Tanya when she catches the bouquet Lori throws after she and John get married.
  • Ted asking if Donny has one of those creepy old-timey wooden horses with a real mane. He does.
    Ted: Yup, there it is.
  • Donny attempting to buy Ted with his railroad bonds.
    Ted: Uh...well, you know, since I just returned from active duty in the Civil War, that actually sounds very appealing. Oh, wait! No, I'm sorry, that was a hundred and fifty years ago, and uh...I don't give a shit.
  • The trailer. Basically, Mark Wahlberg meets Mila Kunis, and the trailer plays out as just another generic romance. However, Wahlberg has a panic attack because of thunder, which is a little funny... But suddenly, out of nowhere, comes a talking teddy bear voiced by friggin' Seth MacFarlane.

How well does it match the trope?
