Tony Gordon, It's Friday - Dec 17 Mini Catfight edition

I'll admit it. I was surprised that Molly did so well in the battle of Tyrone's Mum vs.Tyrone's wife (UFC pay per view I believe - ed). After all, Jackie is a tough cookie, a jailbird and street wise. Ah well, I'm sure we haven't seen the end of the aggro over Tyrone and there may be more cat fights to come. Stay tuned. As a distraction from the misery at Gail's place (more than usual? - ed), I think we can all use a little TGIF (Tony Gordon, It's Friday), the award-winning compendium of memorable lines from the past week. On Dasher!

Hayley is unable to help out cleaning the factory due to a prior engagement:
"Oh, I can’t. I’ve got to take me woody to Kevin’s"
(Lucky Kevin...)

Trevor, the hunky bin man, asks Carla to give a message to Janice:
"Anyway, tell Janice I’ve mended ‘er tap"
(In the immortal words of Carla: "I'll bet you have")

Detective Carr has bad news for the Platts:
"A body’s been found in Lake Windermere"
(I'm sorry you'll have to be more specific: which Lake Windermere?)

Carla assigns Janice to clean the toilets (terlets, if you prefer):
"Well, what do you expect, eh? From your dragon of a boss"
(Well played, Voldemorticia)

Audrey is fed up with the never ending woe at Gail's:
"How many more times will we be here, hmm? Sat in this house digesting awful, bad news"
(I dunno. I'll get back to you the next time she gets married)

 Jackie shares her unlawful dream with Tyrone
"You've robbed a budgie in your dream?"
(Yeah and then the two of them knocked off a bank...)

Molly tells Jackie what she really thinks: 
"You've got to be the worst mother in-law in the world!"(I believe she's up for Golden Globe in that category)

Upma, one of Indian aunties, is appalled at the vegetarian hotpots:
"How do you get gristle in a dish without meat?"
(Ah! That's Betty's little secret)

 Jackie Dobbs tells Molly what she really thinks:
"You're a plate faced slapper with elevator knickers"
(Going up!).


Well, that's it for the week. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the comments. I'll be AWOL for a few days next week (skiving, I presume - ed) but I will be back for TGIF and maybe more. Have a great weekend and enjoy the omnibus edition.


  1. Enjoy your skivin' but hurry back! Reading the hip always adds a little smile to my day. Tony

  2. Man, you skive WAY too much. I'm thinking of cancelling my subscription.

    BTW, could Voldemorticia be a better moniker? No, it could not.
