    Ted has made his own decision - to flirt with the waitress.

    That big build up then totally contradict it as a punchline. Classic.

    They must have been at the table a long time for the waitress to butt in.

    The first sign of a hypocrite.

    Hope John doesn’t take him too seriously!

    Honey? Next time try "Sweetie’ or… ‘Baby’ is good.
    I know! “Hey Mama!”

    My lover has a nephew who seems like this guy. Also makes crude remarks and shows off obscene photos from his phone at parties. I’m so glad my man mostly avoids that branch of his family.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Here, chauvinist Ted tries to influence John Patterson to be a bit more assertive when it comes to women. As far as I know, my husband had nobody like this in his circle of chums, but it was necessary to insert a character who was not exactly likeable or practical — to help create and support new dialogue.

    No matter what John does, he cannot follow the advice in the second panel.

    If we were really honest, we’d admit that we all know someone like Ted.

    @Anna

    Try that line and it’s a sure road to poor service!!

    Why do think Ted is still single. He comes up with this lines because he is afraid of commitment to women. He comes out with these lines on a date and either the date leaves him right on the spot or doesn’t return his calls and he just moves on to the next and avoids any long term commitment.

    When I was a waitress I hated being called honey or baby or anything that wasn’t my name, since my name was on my nametag!

    I agree!! Ted is great at making John look like a prince.
