All of a sudden, babies seem to be the hot topic on the street. Fiz is pregnant. Natasha was pregnant. Becky is with child (i.e. Steve) and Gail thinks she's losing her child (darlin' Nicky). Nothing left to do but look back on the week with another edition of TGIF (Tony Gordon, It's Friday) our regular round-up of some of the more memorable lines of the week. Allez!
John vows to change his ways after learning that Fiz is pregnant:
"I'll never lie to you again"
(That's probably a lie)
Audrey returns to the salon to find David making a mess of things:
"What have you done to Mrs. Mulligan?"
(get me 50 cc of peroxide and 120 cc of Earl Grey! stat!)
John pledges to stick with his real identity from now on:
"I am not Colin. I'm John"
(yeah, yeah, we know and I suppose the walrus was Paul)
Peter's reply after an angry Audrey tells him that his pens are too small:
"Leave my pens out of this"
(you mean you have more than one?)
Audrey accuses Peter of theft:
"You stole two haircuts. That's haircut theft"
(Call Sherlock Perms)
Natasha dismisses her doctor's warning against rushing into another pregnancy:
"I'm not mad, just desperate"
(Er, you know the two things don't have to be mutually exclusive - ask David)
Deirdre tires of Ken's pseudo-intellectual vocabulary:
(Yes, you know like that Canadian football team: the Toronto Ergonauts)
Ken rebels against the dull domesticity of married life:
"Is this our future Deirdre? TV dinner with a side order of resentment?"
(would you like fries with that?)
Leanne is teed off with Peter for hiring John Stape:
"What did he study in uni? Advanced kidnapping"
(he also majored in identity theft)
Gail tells Nick she knows from experience what Natasha is after:
"I've been around the block a few times"
(yeah, the cell block)
Ken doesn't want to argue with Deirdre:
"I'm really not in the mood for a heavy debate on fidelity"
(How about a minor tiff about the Times crossword?)
Natasha warns Leanne to stay away from Nick:
"Keep your mucky little prostitute claws off him"
(but we can still be friends, right?)
Well, fellow Corriephiles, that's it for another eventful week on the Street. I hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy the omnibus and remember that, as of September, CBC is promising us five hours of Corrie a week.All the best and thanks for your kind comments and for stopping by here at the Hip. Cheers.
