Given that she returns to Ted in a few months, it's sort of difficult to watch Connie gloat about being the dumpee; she doesn't really have the right to do this until she marries that idiot Greg.

(Strip Number 4176, Original Publication Date, 25 May 1982)

Panel 1: We begin by watching Connie tell Elly about something she thinks that Elly might find interesting; her train of thought is derailed by the phone ringing.

Panel 2: Connie's holding her hand over the handset and declaring that it's Ted tells us where we are as well (Connie's house) as setting up the punchline.

Panel 3: Connie reminds Ted that he broke up with her so he should stop calling.

Panel 4: Her declaration that it's nice to be the dumper instead of the dumpee doesn't actually apply here; she's just not reconciling with him after being dumped.

Summary: If there's anyone she does get to say that about, it's Phil; we'll see that in a few weeks when Elly whines about her going back to an evil, evil man who dares say that she should stop making mountains out of molehills because she looks absurd whining about the horrible cruelty of living a life 99.9% of the human race would envy.
