Tony Gordon It's Good Friday: the banjo uke edition

please note: this post makes reference to the April 5 episode on CBC

By my calculations, Sophie and Sian's crying and weeping lasted 33 minutes on Thursday night. I haven't seen so much salty liquid since Jack and Vera took a vacation by the sea in Blackpool. Thank goodness for diversions like Sylvia's banjo uke. It may not be the most riveting story but it sure beats the endless wailing, weeping and gnashing of teeth because Amber kissed Sophie. So here's a little TGIF (Tony Gordon It's Friday) where we look back at some of the week's memorable lines.

Roy tells Steve a home truth about his decision not to believe Becky:
"You're a fool"
(better write that down Steve)

Sylvia reminisces about nights on the cruise with her male friend, Milton:
"Out would come his uke banjo"
(I hope that's not a euphemism)

Gail gives her assessment after she views a flat with Eva and Nick:
"I could sense death in that toilet"
(try flushing)

Mary is not at all disappointed that Norris' piano skills are limited to 'Three Blind Mice':
"I love songs about disabled rodents"
 (you might also like Def Leppard)

Sally tells Kevin that the wedding debacle requires a change of plan:
"Better cancel plans for the wake, I mean reception"
(same thing in this case)

Carla comes up with a catch phrase for Frank:
"The respectable rapist"
(that what it says on his business cards)

Kirk outlines his New Year's resolution:
"Eat less white bread"
(Kirk is changing his life, one slice at a time)

Eileen's new work colleague shares a secret:
"I'm a slave to my irritable bowel"
(thanks for sharing)

Well, that's it for another week. Look on the bright side. The endless, piercing cries of "Sophie!" and "Sian!" are over for the time being and we can move on to stories that are a little more interesting. Plus let's see how long Peter can keep up his two-women-at-once act. After all, his bigamy skills are a little rusty. The poor guy must be exhausted.  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and, if you're watching the Sunday omnibus edition, you can take a shower or a walk during the post-wedding debacle of Sophie and Sian (not much happens for about 30 minutes or so). I'll be back next week so meet me here for more of the Hip. Cheers!
