Not surprisingly, given who she is, all Millie cares about is the parlour walls.

Throughout the book, we see that Millie is totally wrapped up in the "family" that she has in the parlour walls.  She wants to get a new fourth wall so that she can be even more obsessed with them.  She spends all her time with them.

On the night that she calls in the alarm, she walks out past Guy Montag and gets in a taxi.  All he can hear from her is some mumbling about her "family."
