Anthony reconsidered in the light of Phil and Connie....

Although John's objections to Elly's matchmaking are doomed to appear on the cutting room floor, it should be noted that he had a strong opinion about what should be done about Connie's love life: nothing. He knew that Elly was trying to do something incredibly damaging to both Connie and her brother Phil to satisfy her own horrible vanity. She didn't care how they felt or what happned, she just wanted an excuse to feel superior to others at their expense. Connie had to have it rubbed into her that Elly was always righr about how bad certain people were for her and Phil had to be reminded that he had to grow and and live on her terms. I can't quite remember how he handled Ted's arrival to complicate things but I do know that he wasn't fond of how it played out. Based on the results of Elly's first recorded attempt at playing matchmaker, it sometimes seems to me that Anthony wasn't the only Perfect Husband for Liz that Elly had in mind; there might have been any number of people that were even less suitable than he is, if such a thing can be imagined. John might have signed off on their plowing through other people's lives only to keep something far worse from happening. Granted, this is a case of the ends justifying the means but it could well be that he'd rather a few people be majorly inconvenienced than Liz marry one of the other monsters that his wife might trot out.
