TGIF Feb 5

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the Feb 4 episode on CBC

If it's Friday, then it's time for another edition of TGIF (Tony Gordon, it's Friday), our weekly round-up of the week's memorable lines on Coronation Street. This week's TGIF is brought to you by Tara's Art Gallery: the next time you're looking for an expensive photo by an unknown art student, visit Tara's where quantity is quality. Onward!

A frantic Ken Barlow running after Martha as she cycles away from the theatre:
"Well, at least tell me where your boat is moored!"
(...only if you tell me where your wife is located!)

Blanche taking precautions due to Ken's odd behaviour near the canal:
"We're on suicide watch"
(Unless Ken's planning on drowning himself in a bowl of leek and potato soup, I think you can stand down)

Audrey making conversation while Peter Barlow has a haircut:
"The truth of the matter is your Dad’s having an affair "
(Now, would you like me to trim your sideburns?)

Peter confronting Ken about his 'friendship' with Martha:
"...and all the time you're sneaking around Weatherfield like a geriatric tomcat"
(...just follow the trail of Metamucil)

Umed bragging about his special friendship with George Harrison:
"We were at Ravi Shankar’s at the time. He was teaching me sitar"
(yeah, right, then Mick Jagger popped in for a curry)

Umed again complementing Teresa for her independent spirit:
"I've heard all about your wonderful projectiles"
(wait till she throws a kebab at you ...)

Jack inviting his new ladyfriend, Connie, to visit his pigeons out back:
"Hey, you wait till you see my blue pied cock"
(No comment)


Well, that's it for the week. Hope you enjoyed visiting and thanks for all the nice comments. In answer to one question, yes by all means, please feel free to share any post and/or the blog with anyone who might be interested. Enjoy tonight's episode and the omnibus and I'll meet you back here next week. Cheers!


  1. While watching the show I find myself wondering if a certain line will make your TGIF list! I just knew the 'blue pied cock' would be there. Have a great weekend and look forward to next week.


  2. Looking forward to it Corrie! Keep it up.
