Ignorance is the only option, Part Seven: The Family Plan....

Of course, Mike isn't exactly endowed with positive role models so it's not much of a surprise that he's a massive fuck-up when it comes to being a boyfriend. Not only is he the son of two macaroons who are probably going to die having no accurate idea of who and what they married, we have to remember that he's the nephew of a depressing idiot who took entirely too long to grow the Hell up and stop whining about going down in flames just because he didn't want to give his slobbering nutjob of an older sister an opening to crow at his minor defeats like the mongrel jerk she is.

I think that what best defined Phil was not his running around acting like Georgia was trying to neuter him when she wants him to abandon bad habits like smoking, flipping off his family by shacking up, pretending that he's still a feckless dope teenager and any other thing that might hint that he's more than a hedonistic boomer fathead. What really defined him is that when Connie considered other options, the omnishambles started howling about how she should suffer a cruel, horrible life of sadness, pain and misery because his presence in it was optional. This tells me that self-centeredness and being a punitive dickhole who needs his arse kicked for him is like the brown hair he and Mike share in being baked into the Richards' DNA. It's kind of like how Elly is going to be disappointed that Phil doesn't have a kid to screw up so she can gloat like the moron she is.
