Elly versus Connie's happiness......

One thing the story arc in which Connie tried to form a lasting relationship with Phil did was prove that her boasts about not needing a husband were self-serving lies meant to preserve her dignity. Despite her claims otherwise, she envied Elly the security, emotional support and freedom of action that a husband provided her. As far as she or anyone else could see, Elly didn't have to struggle to make ends meet, she could do whatever she wanted and she had a man to blame everything that ever went wrong on; she had it pretty damned good. It's too bad that Connie never picked up on the fact that her 'fight the power' jazz fed Elly's inability to be satisfied with what she had. Otherwise, she'd have realized that Elly wanted to have the freedom her delusions told her that she had. She didn't seem to know or care how sad and lonely Connie was or how hard it was to put a roof over her head; all she saw was that Connie didn't have a husband keeping her from living the free and easy life of a swinging single. If she had, she'd have kept her mouth shut and just let things take their course when Phil made the scene. She could then have at least looked like a supportive friend and looked sad when the inevitable happened; she wouldn't have told Phil off either way but at least it would have looked as if she cared.
