Tony Gordon It's Friday: the alternative lifestyle edition

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the June 23 episode on CBC

Well, ladies and gentlemen, now that Weatherfield's finest have got their crack special alternative lifestyle investigation (SALI) unit on the job, it's only a mater of time before they track down Sian and Sophie -- probably at an Indigo Girls concert in Kent. Funny how Kev and Sally are all in knots over this while Rosie casually saunters around the house with 'pop my cherry' emblazoned on her top. Ah well. That's life at the Webster's. Let's just get on with it (about time - ed) and roll into our regular edition of Tony Gordon, It's Friday, a showcase of some the week's memorable lines. Be-have!

Rosie shares her profound philosophy with the other lucky Websters:
"If you've got it, flaunt it"
(think of it as a tarty variation on 'I think, therefore I am')

Hayley reflects on her good fortune with Fiz and Becky:
"Before I met Roy, I thought the right man was like a unicorn"
(less 'horny' than a unicorn, I would think)

Claire is getting sick of Sally Webster's insults:
"She's such a sour-faced cow, that Sally Webster"
(flattery will get you nowhere)

Becky notices that the wedding caboose has been uncoupled and left behind:
"chuffin' hell!"
(quick, all hands to the conveniently-located pump wagon!)

John raises a toast to a sweaty Becky and Fiz:
"To Stinky and Blotchy!"
(That's Ms. Stinky and Blotchy, if you don't mind)

Hayley to her husband:
"I love you Roy Cropper"

Roy' speech at the wedding and his commitment to Hayley:
"I will remain standing beside you. That will not change"
(amen again)

Kevin gives helpful information about the runaway girls to the policewoman:
"We think they might be lesbians"
(Better call CSI Weatherfield and do some DNA testing to make sure)

Norris takes a dim view of Kylie:
"She makes Becky Mcdonald look like the Virgin Mary"
(don't you mean a Bloody Mary?)

Emily is concerned about Ken and Deirdre:
"It's not gone unnoticed that things have cooled between you two"
(Are you kidding? That's like saying the ice age was a tad brisk)

Well, fellow faithful Corrie denizens, that's it for another week. Will the cops find Sian and Sophie? Will Deirdre view the dishy Lawrence as an opportunity -- not a threat? Will the cops find Kylie and son? I guess we'll find out next week. Till then, thanks for stopping by and visiting Blanche's Polish Hip. Have a great weekend, enjoy the omnibus and meet me here next week for more feeble ramblings - straight from the Hip. Cheers!


  1. It was a great week - I look forward to your next instalment of Rosie's 'how to' series when Ms. Webster gives her unique perspective on the lesbian lifestyle!

  2. Thanks for the comment and for suggesting the topic for Rosie's next 'educational' guide. All the best, Corrie H.
