We begin the first phase of the Connie's Homecoming arc with Elly getting demonstrative with her love for the man who finally defeated Ted.

(Strip Number 1241, Original Publication Date, 29 December 1986)

Panel 1: It's New Years morning at the Patterson house and we find Elly greeting Connie and Lawrence because she knew they'd come sometime during the holidays.

Panel 2: Connie introduces Elly to Greg Thomas.

Panel 3: Elly's response to this is to babble happily about the wonderful man Connie's been talking about for the last year or so.

Panel 4: When Elly hugs a confused Greg in gratitude, Connie explains that she has emotional friends.

Summary: The emotions Elly feels are "relief that Ted is no longer going to be a factor in anyone's life ever" and "relief that Connie has finally found someone to be with."
