Tony Gordon It's Friday: The Double Fishwick edition

Is it just my imagination or has it been a very quiet week on the Street? You know you're in trouble when Kirk has the most thoughtful lines of the week. Still we must press on and deal with the problem of two Colin Fishwicks. Let's troll the week's episodes for some memorable lines as we desperately do that thing we like to call TGIF. Let it roll:

Fiz tries to explain to Chesney why John is pretending to be a teacher:
"Teaching is his life. It makes him whole."
(as opposed to a whole?)

The real Colin Fishwick tells Stape and Charlotte why the Great White North is not for him:
"Canada? Great if you're Canadian, but I’m from Stoke"
(so the only people who ever emigrate to Canada... are already in Canada?)

Charlotte summarizes the nub of John's identity theft caper:
"Colin, meet Colin."
(It's like looking into a mirror!)

Charlotte explains to Colin Fishwick how Stape engineered his identity theft:
"John’s big in the Manchester underworld"
(Yeah, he can get you a pirated version of any James Blunt CD)

Charlotte continues to explain the ways of Stape to the real Colin:
"It was like a homage. John’s been like your tribute act."
(It's like the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah band opening for U2)

Colin assures the fake Colin that he means no harm:
"Oh mate I have not flown three thousand miles to put you back in the nick".


Well, Lords and Ladies, that's it for the week. As I say, things are relatively quiet on the Street but never fear, I'm sure there'll be more excitement on the horizon. Enjoy the omnibus on Sunday. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. Cheers!
