In Ted, Ted is climbing up a tower at a baseball stadium being chased by Donny. Eventually Donny grabs him and tears him in half. But my question is why didn't Ted just jump off the tower?

He's a teddy bear so he wouldn't have been hurt and it would have meant that he got away from Donny as he couldn't follow. So is there any explanation of why he didn't? Has Seth MacFarlane or anyone else said anything?

  • Who says he wouldn't have been hurt? He might not have been severely injured, but I'm sure Ted feels pain.

Ted might not feel pain. But he certainly perceives it. That's the reason why he punches back and also gets scared of things. He might not have been hurt if he had jumped off. But he does not see it that way. he sees himself as a human-like teddy bear who can feel pain. He knows the emotion of fear. So he fears losing his life if he falls off a great height.
