TGIF May 7

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the May 6 episode on CBC

Claire is in hospital, Slug is in trouble and Norris is incorrigible. This can only mean one thing: it's time for another dose of TGIF (Tony Gordon, it's Friday), a selection of memorable lines from the week's Corrie. Kick it!:

Umed tells Darryl the slogan for an alleged new environmentally-friendly toilet paper:
"Rough on your rear, kinder to our sphere"
(This bogus paper... is Umed's caper; this fake bog roll is making my eyes roll)

Fiz reveals her wedding plans to Natasha :
"I’m getting married in prison."
(..ding, dong the bells are gonna chime..)

Ben thinks Sophie is just getting religion just to spite Rosie:
"Is she the real reason you're so interested in Christianity?"
(yes, Sophie wants to learn the difference between thong and right)

Sally speculates about the high water content of the human body:
"Wouldn’t it be funny if you had one eye made of eye and the other eye made of water? "
(You might want to keep your eye made out of 'eye' on Kevin)

Lloyd trying to establish Ashley's status vis a vis Claire:
"Still in the doghouse, are you? "

Darryl finally twigs to the fact that Umed is telling tall tales to boost shop sales:
"You told me that there was an international shortage of toilet rolls due to the Kyoto treaty."
(Opps, now about those 12 tubes of Preparation H which I sold you earlier...)

Lloyd assumes that Steve doesn't mind Becky and Slug hanging around together:
"You're a metrosexual male, mate, aren’t you?"

(more like 'retrosexual' I would think)

Steve apologizes to Becky for his fit of jealously:
"All right, look, I’m sorry. I was a plank"
(that excuse sounds wooden to me)

Graeme says Ashley's bad mood is affecting the butcher's choice cuts:
"You’re putting all your bad vibes into the meat"
(...sounds like a mis-steak)

Eileen says she's needs the afternoon off to buy a dress:
"Well, it’s for Steve’s wedding. If I can’t get it, I'll have to go in a bin bag."
(Friend of the bride or the broom?)


That's it for this week. Once more, we find ourselves at Weatherfield General Hospital waiting for news about a Street resident (last time it was Ted). Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the omnibus on Sunday (what better way to spend Mother's Day). Thanks for stopping by and I'll meet you here next week for more of Blanche's Polish Hip.
