That being said, the warped chronology does make all the whining that Phil is doing about Connie tossing him aside because Ted said jump make a damned sight more sense. In the original understanding of events, he'd tried to parlay a one-night stand into a romance because Connie, who he barely know, was a fairly proficient sexual athlete. When Connie turned around and went back to Ted, he didn't act like a regular dumb guy from the sticks and shrug off self-defeating behavior like he should have; what he did instead was act like a spoiled brat (Mike, for instance) and declare that she should die old and alone because she was interested in someone else.
In the new version of history, his antics look a lot more comprehensible; that's because the two of them had what he thought was a fairly solid long distance relationship that, for reasons that escaped him, went zippity-doo-dah when the distance was reduced to down the block. Outraged that familiarity led to ennui at best and contempt at worst, Phil's hostile over-reaction to Connie's equivocation makes a lot more sense. Granted, it's the sense that stopped clocks make but we have to hand Lynn this one; she sure didn't intend to but her stupid revisionist history made Phil less of an ass.
