I'm sayin' that's right, too. She's not so much bothered by the illicit nature of her prospective (or current?) relationship with the guy. What gets her is that he's not into her enough (figuratively) for it to be considered a threat to the relationship he has now. He doesn't feel strongly enough about her to feel that he has to lie to his girlfriend about it.

He's not going to be calling her up at 3:47 A.M., desperately trying to arrange a rondez-vous behind the quickie-mart so he can see her for just a few minutes or anything like that, while pretending to his girlfriend that he ABSOLUTELY had to go out in the middle of the night to get Cheetos and a can of WD40. ("The screen door SQUEAKS! I'm sure you can live with it, Liz, but I'm not that strong. Plus, you know how much I love Cheetos. I'll be back. I'm certainly not going out to have an affair, if that 's what you're thinking.") And the guilt and shame, none of that, or the lying and the anticipation and the guilt, and the shameful sex. ("Oh, this is so wrong. I feel horrible about what we're doing. We should only keep doing this until we get caught.") That's why she's pissed, because if an affair doesn't have all that, why bother?

In summation: it's not that she thinks an affair would be immoral or anything, in this case it wouldn't be immoral enough to even bother with.

Maybe when Liz finds her bunny boiling on the kitchen stove, then she'll start freaking out a litlle bit.
