spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the February 18 episode on CBC
I'm afraid it's a rather abridged TGIF this week (Tony Gordon, It's Friday), since I'm away today (Skiving no doubt - ed). Anyway, here's a round-up of some of the week's memorable lines on Coronation Street. On your mark...
Norris assuring Rita that he wishes her the best with fiance, Colin:
"I won't cast a shadow over your happiness, not for the entire world"
(unless the sun shines...)
Steve recounting his visit to prison to see Tracy:
"then we talked about Amy visiting her and how we would explain that mommy made a mistake "
(she should have used a heavier statue on Charlie Stubbs' head?)
Paula revealing the ugly truth about Colin Grimshaw to Julie:
"I was his daughter’s best friend and he’s your father"
(please don't try explaining this to Kirk)
Jason telling Julie that they should forget they ever hooked up:
"we should never mention this ever again, okay?"
(don't worry, your secret's safe with your sister)
Mary describing Swiss geography to Norris:
"the Ferk is 8,000 feet up"
(..whereas the Jerk is ...)
Martha offering an invitation to Ken:
"You'd best come aboard"
(..that's exactly what he had in mind)
Ken talking about the houseboat with Martha:
"...perhaps I have mythologized this place "
(..especially the legendary chemical toilet)
Lloyd providing Steve with intimate details about Liz:
"Your mother’s very fond of etcetera "
