Tony Gordon It's Friday: the Schmeichel edition

please note: this post makes reference to the March 8 episode on CBC

Peter BolesÅ‚aw Schmeichel was a talented Danish professional football player, voted the "World's Best Goalkeeper" in 1992. His namesake, Schmeichel (also a Great Dane), was a gift from Les Battersby to Chesney and a cherished canine friend and companion to the young man ever since. 

Although the Brown house on Coronation Street is ludicrously small for such a large dog, Schmeichel has been a constant (if not large) presence in Chesney's turbulent life. Small wonder that Ches is determined to save his faithful friend, even though he's doing it with the rent money. Elsewhere, with or without a brain tumour, Chris really is a head case. Oh well, let's do this thing called TGIF, some of the lines from the week:

Julie is ready to procreate with Brian:
"I want to be a mother. let's go make babies"
(too much information)

Brian assesses Julie's invitation:
"A beautiful sexual woman wants to make babies with me"
(what did I just say?)

Kirk doesn't understand the term 'frog march':
"Frogs don't march, they hop"
(please don't mention the phrase 'cakewalk' to him)

Izzy tells Julie that it's okay to work for Frank Foster: 
"Principles don't put bread on the table"
(except maybe for Brian)

Headline in local newspaper about Rosie Webster:
"Kidnap made me feel sexy"
(but Stape's quiz didn't make her feel sexy)

Sally is appalled by Rosie's newspaper interview
"Are you simple Rosie?"
(I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that it may incriminate me)

Kevin is barbecuing for Sophie's birthday party:
"Anyone fancy a sausage?"
(isn't there a vegan option?)

Even Chesney is surprised by Kirk's habits:
"You keep dog biscuits in your pocket?"
(that's nothing, you should see what he's got in his wallet)

Julie tells Eileen that the Colin Fishwick events brought her and Brian together
"Something bright, shiny and wonderful came out of the darkness"
(Please make it go back into the darkness)

Well, faithful Corrie lovers, it's the end of another week with more trouble for Chesney, Underworld and Lloyd. Let's keep our fingers crossed for Schmeichel and hope that Chris eventually gets what's coming to him. Cheers and have a great weekend!
