    • (On living with Percy Daggs) Teddy: Percy and I really never worked together. We have had one scene the entire year where we actually exchange dialogue. And that was when I come up to him in the hallway, it was 'Betty and Veronica,' and I say, 'Hey, good game.' And then Meg and Veronica have a little interaction about their hair. That was pretty much the only time we were on set together. So we really we just hang out at the house. I go off to work, and he'll be home or he'll go off to work, and I'll be at home. We never really had to run into that conflict because we weren't spending all this time together on the set and then at home. I don't think it would have been much of an issue anyway. We are both pretty easygoing guys. We hardly ever get to work together.

    • (On the practical joke Kristen Bell played on him) Teddy: She did a great job of selling it. I mean the whole thing. She had the whole crew going too. At the very end, right as I was making out with the guy, she slips me a little card that says, 'You've been punk'd by Kristen.' And I was just like, I freaked out, I slammed the script down...[laughs] It was really good. She got me good.!

    • Teddy: My freshman year, I was a little happy to be out of high school!

    • (On his short role on 'Gilmore Girls') Teddy: To show up and smile and then leave. 'Hey Alexis, how you doing. Okay. Bye-bye.'!

    • Teddy: I was on Gilmore Girls for about half a second. That was a two-scene little thing, which was a lot of fun, but I wouldn't call it 'acting', per se.
