— Teddy
Teddy is a carpenter/handyman and one of Bob's few friends and is a frequent diner at the restaurant.


Teddy is known for telling long winded stories and being overly chatty. In Bed and Breakfast, Teddy reveals that he once had a "three way" (or at least watched a three way) in which his wife had sex with Ray, a man who dresses as a seal down at the amusement park. Because of this, Teddy's greatest fear is costumed characters and their "soulless eyes". One of his relatives owned a speak-easy named Swanky's, originator of the mixed drink The Swanky Panky.

In The Belchies, Teddy tells Louise, Gene and Tina a story about the treasure under the abandoned Taffy Factory.

Although there was gold, Teddy thought the story was really just a joke. In Full Bars, he hosts a black and orange Halloween party which turns hilariously tragic when he finds Francis, his pet guinea pig, flattened and quite dead. In The Deepening, he has a major role in the episode when he has to confront Mr. Fischoeder's mechanical shark; the very same shark Teddy had worked with  while shooting a film several years earlier. In Topsy it is revealed that Teddy owns a large Van de Graaff generator, which he knows how to operate, but not very safely. Teddy, for one episode, was enemies with Louise because he occupies her room during his stay at the bed and breakfast. When Louise finds out his phobia of costumed characters, she orders several over the telephone, which drives him out.


Teddy was once married, but they divorced. He was involved in a three-way where he just watched while his wife made love to Ray, a costumed character performer while wearing his seal costume. Because of this his greatest fear is of costumed characters.

In Bed & Breakfast after experiencing his greatest fear, he decides to go for a drink with the owl, being sure that it is being portrayed by a woman until Bob corrects him that the fox was a woman.

In The Deepening a potential relationship got ruined by the mechanical shark operator which caused him to spill his drink over the girl in heavy prosthetic make-up. For years after this Teddy blamed the shark itself.

In My Fuzzy Valentine he attends speed dating at the restaurant as set up by Linda. He eventually get's Gina's phone number, another participant in the speed dating.

In I Get Psy-chic Out of You, Linda gives Teddy a vision that he is to meet a woman in a yellow dress and he'll find a nickel. Later in the episode he phones her asking if the dress has to be yellow as he has found a woman wearing a vest with a yellow floral pattern. During the credits he is seen dancing with the woman.

In Housetrap he is shown to be working for a widow named Helen, they have a strong relationship that involves drinking tea on the deck of her beach house.
