Those White Trash Names in Ted

One of the funniest scenes in Ted, the R-rated talking teddy bear movie from writer/director Seth MacFarlane, involves Mark Wahlberg (‘John’) trying to guess the name of Ted’s new girlfriend. Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) gives John a hint that it’s a white trash name and so John starts rattling them off. For those Ted fans who want to know just what names Wahlberg’s listing, here’s the exchange:
Ted: “White trash name. Guess.”
John: “Mandi?”
Ted: “No.”
John: “Marilyn?”
Ted: “No.”
John: “Brittany?”

Ted: “No.”
John: “Tiffany?”
Ted: “No.”
John: “Candice?”
Ted: “No.”
John: “Don’t f**k with me on this. I know this sh*t.”
Ted: “Do you see me f**king with you? I’m completely serious.”
John: “Okay, speed round. I’m gonna rattle off some names and when I hit it, f***ing buzz it.”
Ted: “You do it, I will tell you.”
John: “You got me?”
Ted: “Yeah.”
John: “All right. Brandi, Heather, Channing, Briana, Amber, Sabrina, Melody, Dakota, Sierra, Vandi, Crystal, Samantha, Autumn, Ruby, Taylor, Tara, Tammy, Laura, Shelly and Shantelle? Courtney, Misty, Jenny, Christa, Mindy, Noel, Shelby, Trina, Reba, Cassandra, Nicki, Kelsy, Shauna, Jolene, Earlie, Claudia, Savannah, Cassie, Dolly, Kendra, Callie, Chloe, Devon, Emmylou, f**king Becky?”
Ted: “Nope.”
John: “Wait, was it any one of those names with a ‘Lynn’ after it?”
Ted: “YES!”
John: “Okay, Brandy-Lynn, Heather-Lynn…”
Ted: “Tami-Lynn.”
John: “F**k!”
