Ted Boynton Quotes in The Last Days of Disco (1998)
Ted Boynton Quotes:
Ted Boynton: Barcelona is beautiful but in human terms, pretty cold.
Ted Boynton: Positive thinking is fine in theory. But whenever I try it on a systematic basis... I end up really depressed.
Ted Boynton: You see, that's one of the great things about getting involved with someone from another country. You can't take it personally. What's really terrific is that when we act in ways which might objectively be considered asshole-ish or incredibly annoying... they don't get upset at all. They don't take it personally. They just assume it's some national characteristic.
Fred: Cosa de gringos.
Ted Boynton: Yeah.
Dickie Taylor: Fantastic.
Ted Boynton, Fred: [both together] Yeah.
Ted Boynton: There's a lot of anti-NATO feeling here.
Fred: Anti what?
Ted Boynton: Anti-NATO.
Ted Boynton: Yeah. Well, actually here it's OTAN.
Fred: They're against OTAN? What are they for? Soviet troops racing across Europe, eating all the croissants?
Ted Boynton: [voice-over] I couldn't believe Fred would just show up like that. On the other hand, it was absolutely typical.
Fred: The things they say about us. I know we're not to take it seriously, but after a while, it really hurts.
Ted Boynton: I don't believe you! Just once I'd like to go out with a girl not convinced I'm encased in black leather underwear.
Fred: That bothers you?
Ted Boynton: The exact same story over and over again?
Fred: Well, it's not exactly the same. I always vary it a little.
Ted Boynton: Great! It wasn't even Aurora, but this terrific friend of hers from the trade fair. She's never met you but was still full of your stupid stories.
Fred: Frankly, I don't care for your tone. You should get down on your knees and thank God that you have a cousin who makes up interesting stories about you. I'm the best P.R. guy you're ever going to have. Do you think any even mildly cool trade fair girl would give you the time of day if she knew the pathetic Bible-dancing goody-goody you really are? You're far weirder than someone merely into S&M. At least they have a tradition. We have some idea of what S&M is about - there's movies and books about it, but so far as I know, there is nothing to explain the way you are.
