In the series Better Off Ted, the protagonist often refers to his ex-wife.

On at least one occasion (maybe two), he describes her work, saying something along the lines of: "she's working on improving the world, instead of her self. which is not working out very well, either for her or for the world".

Does anyone have the original quote, preferably with a few lines before and after, preferably with a reference to an online source (if available)?

There is a modest collection of quotes from every episode here, though I don't see any related to that one.

From what I can find, Ted mentions it in passing in the pilot to establish that he is single and has sole custody of Rose. According to IMDB, the line is closer to She left me to find herself and save the world.
