The insight deficit of Elly Patterson

The most baffling part of Connie's decision to travel to Montreal is that we don't know why she fely she had some sort of bond with Phil. This is because, as howtheduck observed, we see things from Elly's perspective. This sort of limits our ability to understand what's going on due to her lack of curiosity. We see them rush about but we do not know why because we rely on someone who doesn't see the big picture. What Elly sees is a goof heartlessly stringing along a needy tramp so he can alley-cat around instead of growing up and acting his age. She has no idea what Phil said or did that, without his meaning to, made Connie think they had had more than a one-night stand and no desire to learn. She also doesn't care why Connie would want to re-create what had yet to be created; all she knows is that she has a chance to remind Connie that she should have listened to her. She also doesn't seem to have noticed that Mike had bonded enough with Phil to have his departure mean something. She's far too busy being focused on her own immediate needs to see what causes the problems that trouble her; all she can do is tell us how it inconveniences her.
