Tony Gordon It's Friday: the 'two in a grave' edition

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the Sept 22 episode on CBC

I know times are tough and the recession is dragging on but has it really come to the point where we have to bury two people in one grave? (and one of them wasn't even dead! - ed). Well the cat is finally out of the proverbial bag and the emotional casualties are piling up. While Ashley's funeral went off without incident, Molly's funeral was not quite so smooth. Instead of throwing a handful of dirt on the coffin in the grave, Tyrone decided to break with tradition and threw a handful of Kev down there instead. To each his own. All we can do is soldier on with another edition of TGIF, showcasing some of the more memorable lines.Onward:

Sean reminisces about his in-joke with Ashley:
"He'd say 'mince?' and I'd say 'homophobe'"
(those were the days)

Rita muses on her bad transportation experiences:
"What is it with me and trams?"
(Better stick with taxis)

Kevin tells Sally that their marriage had problems:
"I had to defrost the bed before I got in it"
(If you think it was cold back then, it's like a Costco freezer now)

Bill Webster can't believe his son's actions:
"My son, a liar and a hypocrite"
(and those are his good points...)

Sally is sickened by Kevin's actions:
"You're a monster!"
(are you saying you want a trial separation?)

Pam is also sickened by Kevin
"You caused more devastation than that bloody tram"
(Kevin has also gone off the rails)

Nick wonders whether he should leave after being blamed for the gas explosion
"If I had half a brain, I'd walk away and leave Weatherfield forever."
(ah, there's the rub)

The penny finally drops as Tyrone realizes what Kev has done:
"You're Jack's dad!"
(but not much of a father figure)

Sally refutes Kevin's explanation that the affair was a horrible accident::
"I hope you're not trying to compare you not keeping your pants on with a gas explosion"
(Well, people were repulsed by both incidents...)


Well, it's been quite a week. I don't know about you but I'm exhausted. Have a great weekend and enjoy the Sunday omnibus. Meet me back here next week for more of Blanche's Polish Hip. Thanks for stopping  by and all the best.


  1. Yes, the drama has been so intense since the gas explosion that watching Corrie is emotionally draining! Looking back on it though, what fantastic writing! Can't wait to see what they have in store for us next!

  2. Thanks for the comment and I certainly agree with you in terms of the writing. Just trying to track the different characters, their states of grief/stress and interactions with other characters must be exceptionally demanding.
    all the best, CH
