Phil wersus matchmaking......

The funny thing about Connie's doomed pursuit of Phil is that he knew that Elly was trying to play cupid. It seems to me that he rejected Connie for that very reason; if Elly hadn't been so obvious about her intention that they marry, he might have actually been more open to a future with a lonely, unhappy woman. Sadly, it seems to me that this was not the first time that she stuck her soon-to-be-bulbous nose in where it did not belong; he remembers many occasions wherein she tried to get him to 'grow up' and 'face adult responsibilities'. This, of course, meant that he should be trapped in a loveless sham of a marriage, have children he detests and a job he loathes just like her. He has a freedom in his life she despises, fears and envies and wishes to take it away. That's because her parents had never granted her such independence no matter how compliant she was. She never understood that freedom is something one seizes, not a reward for being a suck-up. Since she's a petty tyrant filled with entitlement who screams about the minor indignities she suffers, she feels she has to ruin the lives of those around her. He knows this about her and hates being the target of her malicious desire to screw things up for him.
