TGIF April 16

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the April 15 episode on CBC

So, Tony's turned into quite the domestic househusband who cooks curries, washes windows and likes 'Desperate Housewives' (yeah, and I believe he quite likes the TV show as well - ed). Well, while we all watch the Tonemeister play 'happy families' with Maria, we can revel in another edition of TGIF (Tony Gordon, it's Friday), a selection of the memorable lines from the week's Corrie. This week, TGIF is brought to you by Underworld where the expression 'sleeping partner' means something completely different. Let's go:

Auntie Pam tells Bill Webster that she's a hot dating prospect:
"There must be hundreds of blokes out there who would be glad to meet me"
(or at least buy a sandwich from you)

Kevin tells Sally he's doesn't like the idea of Rosie sleeping with Luke Strong:
"Having an affair with your boss is wrong"
(Better put a note on the fridge, Kev, the message doesn't seem to be getting through to the family)

Ms. Carp quotes Oscar Wilde to criticize people who engage in bland meteorological chat:
"Conversations about the weather are the last refuge of the unimaginative."
(just ask Julie about that low pressure system coming in from the South)

Kevin doesn't like Rosie doing 'business' with Luke:
"What’s she buying, part of the factory or a place in his bed? "
(Either way, knickers seem to be involved)

Steve asks Hayley about Becky's old pal:
"What do you know about slug?"
(only that he seems to leave a trail)

Kevin confesses his true feelings to Molly:
"When we're running, all I want to do is jump on your bones"
(oh, you mean like cross-training?)

Hayley tries to cheer Sally up:
"Oh, Sally, turn that frown upside down"
(preferably by standing on your head)

Sally is impressed with Kevin's fragrant after-shave:
"Oh, you smell lovely. Well, you never know, you might get lucky later"
(Only if Molly is coming over)

Tony Gordon shows his sensitive side to Maria:
"I'd love to have kids one day."
(..working as cheap labour in the factory?)

Graeme ponders possible variations in David Platt's name:
" If you were Welsh, Dave, you'd be called Di Platt."
(more likely, 'Die Platt!', if anyone on Coronation Street had a say)


Well, that's it for the week. Thanks again for the nice comments and thanks especially for dropping by. Have a great weekend, enjoy the omnibus and come back next week. Till then, I'd better get on me bike. Cheers.
