TGIF August 13

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the August 12 episode on CBC

Dear Reader(s), I make it a habit of not offering advice but, in this case, I am forced to make an exception. If you are EVER tempted to have a secret, sordid affair, or a legover liaison or something of this ilk, please choose your rendezvous vehicle with care. You might want to use a sleek, black sedan (very discreet) or perhaps a maroon SUV (handy all-wheel drive) or even a dark green mini-van (very versatile and innocuous) but, please, please don't ever use a HONKIN' BIG TOW TRUCK. Just a thought

Anyway, enough of that, let's enjoy another 'Tony Gordon, It's Friday' or TGIF, the regular award-winning feature which offers a round-up of some memorable lines of the week. Take it away:

Julie sounds the alarm to Tony about trouble at the factory:
"It’s Rosie. She’s locked herself in the office. She won’t come out."

(So what exactly is the problem?)

Gail summarizes the benefits of her partner's new project:
"It’s a good investment and it keeps Joe out of mischief"
(A prison timeshare?)

Kirk clears up a longstanding mystery:
"When I got christened, I were wriggling that much, the vicar dropped me straight on me head"
(No comment from Audrey... or me)

Jimmy tells Tony that their 'business' relationship is over:
"I've done all the killing I’m doing for you"
(and your 'free evenings and weekends' deal has expired too)

Tony gets all misty and nostalgic about Carla:
"I couldn’t harm a hair on her head"
(...but that towel turban thingy she's wearing, that's another story)

Vicar at Liam Jr 's christening asks a thorny question... at least from Tony's perspective:
"Therefore I ask, do you reject the devil and all rebellion against God?"
(...hmm, can he get back to you on that?)

Carla asks Tony about Jimmy's head injury:
"Is he bleeding on the rug?"
(ooh I hear it's impossible to get those stains out)

Kevin professes his smoldering passion for Molly:
"It’s torture all weekend knowing you're just 32 metres away"
(42 metres if you count the detour he has to make around Joe's boat)


Well, that's it for another week. Thank you kindly for your comments. I hope you have a great weekend and I look forward to you stopping by next week for more of the Hip. Cheers!

  1. I believe that should be "please don't ever use a HONKIN' BIG" BRIGHT ORANGE "TOW TRUCK".
