On smoking in the Foobisphere.

As I mentioned a little while ago, Elly, Iris, Marian and Georgia share the desire to see the men in their lives quit smoking. Jim and Phil do quit for a time but, sooner or later, they return to the habit and scowl about how selfish meddlers want to deny them their link to sanity while they pretty much run around in circles and look, talk and act like a pair of junkies in high panic mode because they need a fix yesterday, man. The reason I mention this is that it's one of the things that Lynn consistently gets right; her rightness about how smokers are psychologically and chemically dependent on coffin nails even extends into the Declining Years. That being said, it seems somewhat odd that the excuse Connie uses to travel to Montréal and making a clingy chump of herself is that she "has" to return a different delivery system for Phil's favorite addictive chemical: the pipe she catches Michael and Lawrence playing with. The only thing that makes it sort of appropriate is that she's addicted to the idea of getting a man to complete her.
