Elly makes a point of tuning out Phil's legitimate concerns that he might end up doing wrong by Georgia because WEDDINGS!!!

(Strip Number 4716, Original Publication Date, 18 November 1986)

Panel 1: We continue on with Phil trying to ask Elly about marriage in general and what happens to a relationship when one has made a legal commitment in particular.

Panel 2: The reason he asks is that up until now, if the relationship wasn't viable, either he or Georgia could simply move out without the stigma and recrimination associated with divorce.

Panel 3: He tells her that this is a serious commitment and he wants to know if he's doing the right thing.

Panel 4: Since all she heard was blahblahblah I won't eat my spinach, she astonishes him by stating that Georgia would look beautiful in antique lace. It's as if she wasn't listening because the vision of the Perfect Wedding drowned out all other concerns.

Summary: The person tasked with writing the description stated that Elly's head is full of wedding dresses and thus she cannot be asked to care about trivialities like whatever Phil is saying. All Elly hears when Phil gets to talking about making a big mistake that could ruin lives is static that means that he won't listen to her and do what she tells him to.
