Tony Gordon It's Friday: the weak-minded English teacher edition

please note: this post makes reference to the March 1 episode on CBC

This week had it all: kidnapping, firemen, car chases, bondage, court drama, gay marriage and a pop quiz. Who could ask for more?  So, without further ado, let's take a quick gander at some of the week's memorable lines in the could-be-famous Tony Gordon, It's Friday or TGIF, our regular Friday feature which gives you, the punters, some high quality time-wasting material. Let's start, and remember no chocolate bars or water, until you've memorized the blog and recited the key points to the court:

Marcus reveals to Sean the sad truth of what he observed in Freshcos:
"I saw the fireman with another woman"
(and she didn't even have her head stuck in the railings)


Rosie's nemesis, Stacey, brags to Rosie about her modelling gig:
"I'm the new face of Weatherfield Windows"
(slogan: you can see right through us)


Sophie makes a confession to Sunita:
"I kissed Amber"
(and I think she liked it...)


Sally, now working for the dark side, tries to entice Eileen:
"Mr Foster has a very attractive package"
(the wages and benefits aren't bad either)


Sally bemoans the complications of life:
"The world would be a far simpler place if there were no sex"
(Just ask Norris)


Rosie tells Jason she's optimistic about a potential buyer for the flat:
"I have a good feeling about Mr. Chips"
(Sadly, the feeling's not mutual)


Fiz swears to the court that she had no idea what happened to Colin Fishwick:
"I didn't know he was dead, I thought he was in Canada"
(Easy to get the two mixed up.)

***
Well, fellow convivial Corrie comrades, it looks like we're coming to the end of another week. Let's hope that Fiz doesn't get sent down and old Stape gets what's coming to him (i.e. a return visit to his cell at the local nick). 

I must confess to you that the adventures of Sophie are wearing thin for me. Ever since she dropped out of school and stopped doing much of anything, her character has become less interesting and more whiny. I liked her better when she was the studious, intelligent counterpoint to Rosie getting a good education and on her way to a successful future. I'm just saying... Anyway, that's enough mithering. Gotta get on my bike. Have a great weekend and meet you here next week. Cheers!
