Lawrence and Phil: a closer look....

Another thing we can look forward to in the coming months is the beginning of Phil's extended stay in Milborough after he gets a job offer to teach at the university; the reason that this is important is that it marks the more or less official end of any real chance he might have had with Connie and the beginning of his relationship with Georgia. It's also a reminder that he, while being a great teacher of children and a wonderful uncle, isn't precisely what I'd call father material. We found that out when his reaction to hearing about Lawrence's accident was to shrug and state that it really shouldn't affect Connie's plans; anyone else, of course, would ask her what the dickens she was doing not being at the child's bedside. Anyone else would also be able to pick up on why Lawrence is rather cold to him. Phil is probably still scratching his head and wondering what he did to cheese the man off; that's because he's not bright enough to see himself through the eyes of a child who was shoved aside so that his mother might go roadside. About the only upside I see to this mess is that at least Phil admits that he doesn't have what it takes to parent.
