Tony Gordon It's Friday: The Bin Man cometh (and goeth) edition

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the November 10 episode on CBC

Let me see if I've got this straight. Trevor, Bin man extraordinaire, used to have a serious legover going with Carla (once described by Peter Barlow in a church as 'smoking hot') and is now planning to get it on with Janice in a pre-owned Volvo. (I can't believe it... a Volvo - ed). It's not that Janice isn't a comely lass. She certainly has share of quaint feminine charms (getting bladdered and barred from the Weathy Arms? - ed). It just seems like a dramatic contrast in relationships, kind of like when Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie. And, I suppose if Angelina Jolie worked (skived you mean - ed) in a knicker factory, lived in a grotty flat and chugged bottles of lager, she'd be just like Janice.  But enough of my mithering. let's get this TGIF started with a few choice lines from the past week:

Liz returns to Weatherfield with a new hair style:
"It's one of Manolito's creations"
(Quick, find this Manolito... and kill him)

Tracy describes her wild date with Frank, the clothing manufacturer turned predator:
"Best night of my life since I got out of prison."
(even better than listening to Ken read aloud from the Oxford English Dictionary?)

Becky in a raucous fight with Liz:
"You're a tart with a bus pass"
(monthly or weekly?)

Steve summarizes Tracy's modus operandi with men:
"You just off 'em when they get on your nerves"
(breaking up is hard to do - especially with a blunt object)

Julie is not amused by the music being played by Janice at all hours:
"I'm not a fan of Meatloaf"
(well, just eat the vegetables then)

Well, it's already Friday and Becky is still in the doghouse. On the plus side, Big Jim is back. On the down side, so is John. And Kevin winning $200,000? Give me a break. Let's just keep our fingers crossed for some juicy stories next week. Oh what I wouldn't give to see that narrow boat return to the canal and Ken on long walks with Eccles or donning a Kimono. Well, A Corrie lover's reach must exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for? See you next week and have a great weekend. Cheers & thanks for stopping by.
