TGIF July 9

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the July 8 episode on CBC

I don't want to be ungracious but the only way I'm going to get interested in the unending Norris/Ramsay saga is if the trunk is unlocked, Ramsay pops out and then throttles Norris. Now that's a good story! (with a happy ending - ed). But I digress. Let's move on to some of the more more memorable lines of the week and take a gander at TGIF (Tony Gordon, it's Friday), our weekly round-up of quips and one-liners from the past four episodes. Here we go:

Sally is rushing to finish the ironing before she and Kev leave on their cruise:
"Kev, shall I put a crease in these shorts?"

(No, but you may want to put a foot in his crotch when you find out what he's been up to)

Molly is making one of those annoying sexual double-entendre phone calls to Kev:
"I need a strong man to come and help me. I think my sparkplugs might need reigniting"
(Reminds me of that old song: 'Reignited and it feels so good' by Peaches and Herb)

Blanche compares notes on other funerals from her vast database:
"My friend Ethel Armitage were buried in a biodegradable coffin made of banana leaves."
(hmm, doesn't really a-peel to me)

Norris considers an appropriate epitaph to summarize his personality:
"He was a man who faced life’s misfortunes without complaint and with a ready smile"
(..and knew a miserable sod named Norris Cole)

Connie assures Tyrone that Vera's urn is coming with her and Jack to the new digs:
"Oh, she’s in the bag. She’s coming with us."
(I guess you could call that 'ash & carry')

Becky checks her inventory of attire for the honeymoon:
"Two bikinis, a pair of shorts, me battery fan"
(the perfect formal evening wear ensemble for Ms. Granger)

Audrey assures Emily that it's okay to complain about Mr Cole:
"Blaming Norris is one of the few pleasures we get in life"
(along with cricket and a nice cup of tea)

Audrey again making a confession:
"I've had plenty of shameful thoughts in the night, Emily.Mostly involving a young Engelbert Humperdinck"
(thanks, that's one image I'll never get out of my mind)


That's it for a week in which the average temperature was hotter than a fire in the knicker factory (which one? - ed). Hope you had a tolerable week and enjoy the weekend. Thanks for stopping by and see you next week. Cheers to all.
