Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines: T is for Ted

Welcome to the A-to-Z Challenge, peeps!  Participating bloggers have cooked up some special treats for us this month. You won't want to miss out! Thanks to Arlee Bird for creating this challenge!

Don't forget to visit the list and you'll find some new pals. ... #AtoZChallenge  

My themes is Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines and I'm keeping it short and sweet with my daily offerings. Today is T for Ted "Theodore" Logan!

In Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, the guys (Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves) are faced with a challenging history project and Ted's Dad's threat to ship him off to military school. Totally bogus. With he help from Rufus (George Carlin) they travel back in time, dragging such luminaries as Beethoven, Napoleon, Genghis Khan, Socrates, Marco Polo, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc and Sigmund Freud back to the present to ace the history report. Awesome, 'cause the future depends on them!

T is for Ted!

Mr. Ryan: Ted, stand up.
Ted: Stand up?
Mr. Ryan: Yes, son. Stand up.
[Ted stands]
Mr. Ryan: Now, who was Joan of Arc?
Ted: ...Noah's wife?

(Outside the Circle K)
Ted: OK, the lady in that car over there said that Marco Polo was in the year 1275.
Bill: It's not just a water sport, I knew it. 
(A woman enters convenience store)
Ted: Excuse me? When did the Mongols rule China?
Woman: I don't know, I just work here.

Missy: Hi, Bill. Want a ride?
Bill: Sure, Missy...I mean Mom. [she smiles and puts on her Ray-Bans]
Ted: [whispering to Bill] Your stepmom's cute.
Bill: Shut up, Ted.
Ted: Remember when she was a senior and we were freshmen?
Bill: Shut up, Ted!

Evil Duke: Put them in the iron maiden.
Ted: Iron Maiden?
Bill, Ted: Excellent!  [air guitar]
Evil Duke: Execute them.
Bill, Ted: Bogus!

Freud: And so, Ted's father's own fear of failure has caused him to make his son the embodiment of all his deepest anxieties about himself. And hence, his aggression transference onto Ted.
Ted[sits up] Whoa....
Freud: Okay, Ted?
Ted: Yes... Thank you very much, Sigmund Freud...
Freud: Bill? [motions toward the couch]
Bill: Nah...just got a minor Oedipal complex.

Ted: Our first guest speaker comes from the year 400 BC, a time when most of the world looked like the cover of the Led Zeppelin album, Houses of the Holy.
