The talking mechanism on the coffee mug is triggered by a button. It makes noise when the button is released. The button is on the bottom of the mug so that it speaks whenever someone picks up the mug. This mechanism can also be turned off so you don't have to hear Ted all the time. The mug is dishwasher safe and has removable/replaceable batteries. Special instructions come with the item to explain how to remove the electronic talking mechanism and batteries so the mug can be washed. The R-rated talking version of Ted states the following 5 explicit phrases from the movie (subject to change): "Yeah, I mean, y-you know when you sewed me up you put some of the stuffing in the wrong places so I'm-I'm a little f@!#ed up, but will you take care of me for ever and ever?... Aha! I'm just kidding you! I thought it'd be funny if you thought I was f@!#ing retarded." "You ever hear a Boston girl have an orgasm? 'Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Harder! Harder! Oh, God, that was so good! Now I'm gonna stuff my f@!#in' face with Pepperidge Farm.'" "Well you never should've trusted me. I'm on drugs!" "Alright c'mon, let's sing the Thunder Song. When you hear the sound of thunder, don't you get too scared. Just grab your Thunder Buddy and say these magic words: F@!# you, Thunder! You can suck my d@!#. You can't get me, Thunder, 'cause you're just God's farts (makes fart noise)." "Oh f@!# that, it's been 4 years, Johnny! You and me have been together for 27 years. Where's my ring, huh? Where's my ring, @!#hole? Where's my ring, mother f@!#er? Put it on my fuzzy finger, you f@!#! C'mon!"
