Tony Gordon, It's Friday - the Gail 'n Jail edition

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

Well, it's Friday. Gail's in jail. What more can you say, except that it's time for 'Tony Gordon, It's Friday', (TGIF), your weekly round-up of some of the more memorable lines from this week's episodes of Corrie.  There's no question that doing hard time will prove to be a hard time for Gail so with that sombre thought in mind, let's do the jailhouse rock:

Ken telling Peter to put aside his personal grievances with George for the good of Simon:
"Now is not the time to be pigheaded"
(...but I can pencil you in for next Tuesday)

Nick asking Carla if the clear glass walls in her factory office compromise her privacy:
"Do you ever feel like a goldfish?"
(No, she usually feels like a magnum of chilled Chardonnay)

Nick again insisting to Carla that he's not flirting:
"Don't tell me you're one of those vile women who thinks that everything in trousers is coming on to them?"
(don't tell me you're one of those vile men who does?)

Tina tells the Platts what she really thinks:
"You're a family of freaks. You're the Munsters"
(Which one is Herman?)

Molly describes to Kevin how she became pregnant:
"it’s a genuine, total, out of the blue cock up"
(I didn't even know they came in different colours)

Molly again extolling the awesome benefits of her pregnancy to Kevin:
"You'd make a great dad"
(Two words: Rosie Webster)

Detective Sergeant Carr specifying Gail's charges:
"On the 8th of February at Lake Windermere in the County of Cumbria, you murdered Joe McIntyre contrary to Common Law"
(On the 9th of February, David Platt stole a motorboat, also contrary to Common Law).

Nick has a bit of news to share with Audrey and David:
"I didn’t want to say anything because of everything that’s going on, but I’ve bought into Underworld"
(Oh and, by the by, I'm radioactive, having sex with a horse and singing the lead in Mama Mia - didn't want to muddy the waters, what with the nasty murder business and all. Cheerio)

Mary explains why Norris went to the doctor:
"It was only to double check a hairless patch on his shoulder".
(don't you mean his head?)

Well that's it for another wild week on the Street. Thanks to Mary and everyone for the comments which I greatly appreciate. I hope you all have a great weekend and an enjoyable omnibus on Sunday. Thanks also for stopping by at Blanche's Polish Hip and I'll see you back here next week for a virtual cuppa, a virtual Barm cake and more musings about Weatherfield. Cheers!

  1. My favourite line of the week was Simon's surprised "Why?" when Peter said he'd been worried about him.
