The Street fete summary: four tickets to the Cumberland pencil museum (they took all the pencils and put 'em in a pencil museum? - ed), two curries and one analphylactic shock. Well, it could be worse, I guess. At any rate, it's all grist for the TGIF mill (Tony Gordon, it's Friday), a selection of the week's memorable lines. Allez!
Claire is having trouble squeezing donations from Corrie merchants:
"Tight as a bullfighter’s pants the lot of them "
(but not nearly as sexy)
Norris regrets his choice of night-time reading material:
"I knew it was a mistake taking 'The Grocer' to bed"
(Now THAT'S an interesting story line)
Norris is anxious for his lunchtime treat:
"I've got a tongue sandwich waiting at home"
(hopefully, it will give you a lashing)
Betty misunderstands the Hebrew word for audacity:
"Every good businessman should have a certain 'foot spa' "
(a little chutzpah also helps)
Eileen wants Jesse to restrain his free-range bird:
"You can stop painting your saloon frontage and come home and
capture your parrot"
(after that, you can put the bird back in the cage...)
Simon, dressed as Robin, speaking to Weatherfield's finest:
"Don’t worry, coppers, leave crime fighting to us"
(finally, some law enforcement professionals we can rely on)
Ben likes the idea of a contest to see if Umed's curry is better than Teresa's:
"It can be a curry off "
(if Teresa is involved, you can be sure that at least one curry will be 'off')
Mysterious Madame Hunt tells Kelly's fortune:
"Ah, I see there will be fellas, many fellas especially if you keep
dressing like a tart"
(consider it done)
Kelly confuses Deep Vein Thrombosis with something else:
"I had that when I came home from holiday in Tenerife once"
(the doctor gave her an ointment and a Spanish telephone directory and told her to contact the appropriate parties)
Emily lets loose at Norris for his callous behaviour:
"You silly, blinkered, selfish, little man."
(...and those are his good points)
Well, that's it for the week. Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and see you next week here at the Hip. Cheers!
