Not EXACTLY the same scenario, and not really what Penny is trying to say, but similar. What Rich did was implied to be pretty spur-of-the-moment, as most things he did were. Penny's been thinking about this since she heard her parents talking. And she's not telling Aggie to cave to her, either, the way she and Rich were always trying to get the other to cave. She's telling Aggie to stand up for herself and stop thinking short-term success.
In a sense, very Stan-like. Just less smiley and more...well, more Penny.
Not only that, the time limit here is very real for BOTH of them. Rich could have chosen to stay in Belleville, but he didn't. Penny had no real cause to leave Belleville besides Rich. P&A are BOTH leaving the town for college, presumably, so if they want to stay together, even for a short time, they should leave together.
