Liz versus understanding Martha.

As we all know, Liz has a rather poor grasp on how people interact because she's fairly sheltered and isn't especially bright. We get to see this come into play when she doesn't ask questions when Ugly Brother and her parents talk about the undesirability of Martha. Mike's accounting of events is self-serving, blame-evading and blame-deflecting and is thus suspect. Elly lets her insecurities and feelings of inadequacy do her thinking for her. John goes along with things because he's not too swift about people.

The reason that I mention this is that Liz really ought to know better because Mike's accounting of their incessant sparring is self-serving, blame-evading and blame-shifting. Elly lets her self-pity do her thinking for her when talking about how Liz is a problem. John doesn't make waves because interacting with people when it ain't fun is not on. Since Liz is a twit, she thinks that she's the only person Mike is a complete knob to, she's the only person Elly singles out for persecution and the only one John won't defend. This gets in the way of her liking a fellow sitting duck.
