spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the October 29 episode on CBC

If it's Friday, then it's time for TGIF ('Tony Gordon, It's Friday'). Back by popular demand (i.e. the nice lady at Tim Horton's who reads the blog). But I digress. Upward and onward on a trip through the quotable quips of the week. Allez!:

Steve Mcdonald expressing disgust at Lloyd's sexual interest in his mother:
"I was born between those legs!"
(You make it sound like there's a commemorative plaque there)

Jack reminiscing about the pub where Tyrone's stag is taking place:
"There was a crackin’ barmaid in here years ago, you know, Gloria, a knife thrower’s assistant"
(She was a cut above the rest...)

Lloyd criticizing Steve's reaction to news of the Lloyd-Liz romance:
"As soon as I get a little bit of tail you can’t handle it"
(I guess Steve just isn't a qualified 'tail-handler')

Steve explaining to Michelle why he's so upset:
"My mom has just been in Lloyd Mullaney’s boxer shorts"
(...and she didn't even send a postcard?)

Becky describing an adventurous sexual game to Steve:
"Have you ever played the happy plumber?"
(does that involve charging twice the original price, showing up late and making a mess of the bathroom?)

Norris describing a nightmare to Rita:
"It was like, like a powerful force sort of grasping at me throat."
(You'll have to narrow it down, Norris, that could be half of Weatherfield)

Tyrone telling Kevin about the musician he's hired for the wedding:
"She’s a Korean harpist"
(apparently, they have the most Seoul...)

Molly telling the lads to make sure Tyrone gets a bone fide stag party:
"I mean it. I won’t be happy unless he’s stripped naked, tarred and feathered, and put on a slow train to Edinburgh."
(I'll call Tony Gordon right away...)


Shots from the hip... that's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the Friday episode and the weekend omnibus edition.


  1. Hilarious post, Corrie, esp. the Norris one!! Cheers, Mary

  2. Hi Mary and thanks for the comment. Like Rodney Dangerfield, Norris doesn't usually get much respect. Corrie
