TGIS? Just doesn't have the same ring to it does it? Sorry, ladies and gentlemen, but due to a sudden bout of stomach flu (please spare me the details - ed), I was AWOL on Friday. Never fear though, I am making a brave return today with a delayed edition of TGIF or 'Tony Gordon, It's Friday', a compendium of the memorable lines from Corrie over the past week. This edition is brought to you by Klever Kitchens, which puts its back into your custom kitchen. Onward
Eileen's capsule summary of 'The Sound of Music':
"It’s just nuns, nazis and lonely goatherds"
(hint: the ones in the habits are nuns)
Sally Webster musing on the value of intelligence:
"D’you know something? I think brains are overrated. "
Ken asking about Blanche's health:
"Deirdre and I are concerned about your hips"
(well, Deirdre's actually more concerned about Mick Jagger's hips - which are not Polish)
Deirdre upon seeing that Blanche forgot to bring her dressing gown:
"You could've worn Ken’s kimono."
(hmm, I suppose it does have a certain 'Memoirs of a Weatherfield Geisha' quality)
Blanche's opinion of the Rolling Stones:
"Still writhing around at their age, it’s obscene"
(... careful, Ken might use the song 'Paint it Black' as a decorating guide for your room)
Michelle having a little chat with Ryan about the birds and bees:
"you're at an age where you, you know, you get urges"
(...are we talking about you or Ryan?)
Tony, while breaking up with Natasha:
"Don’t ever upset Maria again. I'd hate for us to really fall out"
(...yes, exposure to Tony can be hazardous to your health)
Eddie Windass explaining why young Gary doesn't have a job:
"He’s not suited to work, that’s the trouble"
(must be genetic)
Well, that's it for the week. Enjoy the weekend and see you next week.
