We end the arc with Phil parroting Lynn's belief that professional musicians are anarchistic freaks who oppose society, have no fun, hate goodness and (worst of all) impress thei parents with their evil ambition, hard work and not settling for less when they're supposed to be thanking her for doing what she thinks she's supposed to.

(Strip Number 372, Original Publication Date, 26 February 1983)

Panel 1: As Lizzie plays around with Chekhov's fish tank, Phil tells Elly that he hates to think about moving again but he just doesn't fit in with the cultists following the insane fad diet. 

Panel 2: Elly makes that annoying palms out gesture as she tells him that surely, he can rent an apartment where there are sane, ordinary, normal musicians. (Also, watch as Lizzie reaches in to the fish tank.)

Panel 3: Phil's panicky declaration that there's no such thing may be best compared to the fecal matter of Equus caballus. 

Summary: Lynn's opinion on the matter is, shall we say, suspect owing to a bias she refuses to acknowledge. It's not that she's a jealous, bitter little troll who won't get over the past, it's that Alan is wrong to be more beloved than her.
