Lynn is pandering to people who think that Black Friday (or Grey Cup Weekend if you're Canadian) is the start of the Christmas season to hint that Connie will, after all, go to Montreal to chase after an unwilling Phil.
Panel 1: We see Elly and Connie walking Farley the morning after the storm. Connie asks her if she's got her Christmas shopping done and Elly says "Almost."
Panel 2: She tells Connie that she has to get something for Phil.
Panel 3: Connie turns to her and says that she bought Phil his favorite Scotch and a bath robe; Elly says "A bathrobe?" in alarmed disbelief.
Panel 4: She goes on to say "Whoa!! That's a pretty intimate gift"; Connie responds to this rare understatement on Elly's part by saying that she and Phil have an intimate relationship and communicate on a higher level.
Panel 5: Elly tells us that she joins us in realizing that said relationship is at best one-sided (if not wholly a figment of Connie's diseased mind) by going bug-eyed and thought-bubbling that her friend Connie has her head in the clouds.
Summary: I know that a lot of you had thought that this issue had been settled ages ago but I always sort of expected that Lynn would go to that well again; we can expect Connie to blow Lawrence off after he gets injured pretty much on schedule.
