Today's strip is another reminder that Lynn believes that all the men who ever told her to her face that they had better ways of wasting their time than dealing with her issues are really pining away for her.

(Strip Number 305, Original Publication Date, 19 August 1982)

Panel 1: Phil thanks Elly for her 'help' and tells her that if she sees Connie, to say hello for him. She asks if that's everything.

Panel 2: It turns out that it isn't; he also wants to tell her that she's insane and deserves to be miserable.

Panel 3: She also let the 'love' of a lifetime slip through her fingers and some other high-school bullshit.

Panel 4: Elly cuts him off in mid rant and tells him that she'll just say hello.

Summary: Since Connie is also an avatar for Lynn, this bizarre longing that men have for the spidery, self-pitying whack-job can only be explained by Lynn's need to think that she's such a keeper that every man she's ever met is actually lusting for a chirpy, self-absorbed, childish ignoramus.
