Connie is the rebellious one in her family. She makes fun of her sister for being a frump and doesn't want to spend time with her parents. The traits that make her an easy target for Arnold are her obsession with her looks, her flirtatious behavior, the way she dresses, and her excitement over attention from boys (in Arnold's case men).
