Let's see if John's lunch with Ted leads somewhere other than the alteration of history. I'd like to think that Lynn would make one of Connie's doomed relationships part of the new continuity but I'm not getting my hopes up; the same impulse that had her make Phil tell Elly to call Connie off and keep her from going to Montreal might make her turn Ted into Seymour Skinner with a flashier car.

Damn. I hate being right.

Panel 1: We start things off with John asking how Ted's mother is these days. Ted says that she always seems to have "something" wrong with her.

Panel 2: This is why he feels it's so hard to leave home; she needs him, worries about him and always wonders where she is. In other words, she's a passive-aggressive old witch who uses her son's humanity as a means of controlling him and taking away his independence.

Panel 3: John picks up on this and gently but firmly says that Ted might need a woman his own age in his life. Ted boasts that he's no wallflower.

Panel 4: He gets himself out there and has no problem attracting the ladies.

Panel 5: He does, however, have one teensy problem: finding a girl Mommy will let him play with.

Summary: Good luck with that, idiot. Your mother wants to keep you all to herself because she hates your freedom. You'll only get to know a real monogamous relationship AFTER she dies.
