Elsewhere, Kevin is trapped under hydraulic lift. Amy is still drinking milk. Deirdre is still throwing pots (at Ken? -ed). Marcus is still in love with Sean. Katy is still suffering from 24 hour morning sickness. Dennis Tanner is still charming the birds out of the trees. And Norris still has his shorts in a knot. All is right with the world except for that Stape thing. There's only one thing to do and that's a little thing we call TGIF or Tony Gordon It's Friday (it's Saturday actually but who's counting - ed), a buffet of tasty lines from the past week.
Tina is tired of waiting for some intimate attention from Graeme
"Leave it any longer and I'll start fantasying about Norris."
(Check with Mary, she's probably had plenty of practice)
Claudia catches Audrey and Mark having tea:
"It must be love, he's broken open the Bourbons"
(nothing like sandwich biscuit consisting of two thin oblong dark chocolate biscuits with a chocolate fondant filling to signify eternal devotion)
Claudia again to Audrey and Mark:
"I was hoping to catch you at it"
(...and put the video on YouTube?)
Claudia once more to Audrey
"You've been in more triangles than a set of pool balls"
('cue' Audrey's outrage)
Time for Mark to explain his hobby:
"I just enjoy doing this. I'm a cross dresser. I always have been"
(Now, if you'll excuse me, my mascara needs touching up)
Claudia comments on Marcia:
"It's a bit early for the pantomime season"
(Oh NO it isn't...)
Claudia's zinger directed at Audrey and Mark:
"Made a fool of by the tranny and the granny"
And finally, Julie Carp weighs in with her philosophy:
"Love is like a fire. If it's not poked regularly, it goes out"
(If there's one thing I hate it's irregular poking)
Well, faithful Corrie lovers, that's it for another week. Will Stape see sense? Will someone save Kevin? Will he get a refund on that hydraulic lift? We'll have to wait and see next week. Till then, have a great weekend and I'll meet you back here next week for more of the Hip. Cheers!
