Connie: the Granthony of the Past......

It seems to me that Lynn has a very odd vision of what a single parent is; the character used to demonstrate that might change but the basic characteristics are the same. We start off with the knowledge that the single parent's spouse is long gone and more or less unlamented by the Pattersons; it doesn't matter if we're talking about Pete Landry or Thérèse Caine, the other spouse is absent from the lives of his/her spouse and child. What this does to the person in question is turn him or her into a passive, needy jerk who fixates on someone inappropriate as being the be-all and end-all of his or her love life. It doesn't seem to matter what the other person demands, the Single Parent will do any horrible thing to keep the other coming back. Finally, we have it hammered home what a great parent s/he is despite visual evidence that he or she is made of fail. We see this now when Connie blew off Lawrence to chase the jazz unicorn and we see it again when Anthony threatens to cancel Christmas so he can steamroll his child into accepting his idiot girlfriend. Since Connie and Anthony both seem to be Lynn-as-single-parent, this raises some alarming concerns about how she behaved back in the day.
