Tony Gordon It's Friday: the Paradise Lost edition

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the December 16 episode on CBC

Well, it's all kicking off now isn't it? John Stape, the original nutty professor, is sitting on the roof reading John Milton's 'Paradise Lost'. One might even say, 'Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven' (get on with it! -ed) Anyhoo, the Street is in crisis mode. Stape is on the loose. Max has been taken away. Graham's cup of love runneth over causing heartache for all.

So let's roll into this week's edition of TGIF, our weekly selection of memorable lines. 

Steve's astute entomological analysis of his ex-wife: 
"Tracys like a flippin' cockroach" 
(The national cockroach association (NCA) is demanding an apology)

Fiz to Stape as they drive off to bury the body of Colin:
"We've got a body in the boot" 
(and you probably need an oil change)

Roy's mother shares her unique view on the business of running a cafe: 
"Customers are like Afghans, they've got to be trained" 
(so that's what the rolled up newspaper is for) 

Tracy finds the service at Roy's cafe to be lacking: 
"Anyone would think I asked for a unicorn sandwich" 
(sounds a little horny, I'll just take ham and cheese)

Mark explains why he and Claudia split up: 
"She dumped me because I have a better wardrobe"
(I guess we know who wore the pants in that relationship: no one)

Stape explains to Fiz why they can't report Chesney's absence:
"Colin's back in the country"
(...and he's resting comfortably)

Fiz finally realizes the truth about John Stape:
"You're a murderer"
(yes, but he can explain...)


Well fellow aficionados of Corrie killers, it looks like Stape is on the loose, on the run and crazier than an English teacher on the day before school ends for summer. What will he do? Will he really run off to Scotland and become the new 'Loch Ness Monster'? We'll just have to tune in next week and find out. Have a great weekend and see you back here next week. Cheers!
