Phil's freedom doesn't make him free......

I'd like to move away from Elly pouting about how unfair it is that her horrible children wanted to torment her by questioning the iron-clad rule that only their generous parents get to decide what they will allow the offsprings and small ones to keep to talking about how Phil took a very long time adjusting to the idea of a more settled life. Given how often Lynn liked to have him compare the steady, regular existence the Pattersons had to some sort of cruel punishment meant to trap people and keep them from being free, what we were looking at was her hectoring Alan about how worthless and stupid he was being for not settling down NOW and making of himself a disgrace to everyone everywhere.

What she doesn't realize is that when Phil talked about some fellow he knows going down in flames, he (and Alan) were more than likely trying to tell her that he had convinced himself that he was sure to make a complete blunder of the whole work-a-daddy, mind-your-mommy Patterlife held up as a model for all. While John might overshoot the mark with his rattling witlessly about evil, distracting stars that mislead people into living a miserable nomadic life of nomadic misery, Elly is genetically incapable of understanding putting a brave face on things. Since John is too blasted insensitive to understand how dull it is to drift along aimlessly and Elly too angry at him for winning their childhood, it's a good thing for him that he has a reasonably sympathetic life partner in Georgia. She might want to remodel him too but at least it's not because she hates him and wants to torment him to death for the sins of her idiot parents.
