What you need to know: Peter's back on the bottle, Norris is celebrating his 132nd birthday (measured in fussbudget years), Dennis Tanner feels like he is sponging off Rita (duh). Lewis gets a job at Nick's (head gigolo?) Carla signs the contract to her share of the factory to Frank - before Sally and Michelle can tell her that it's all a scam.
Well, it's Friday and loyal followers will know that means one thing (you're skiving again? - ed), Tony Gordon It's Friday or TGIF. For newcomers to this blog, I bid you welcome. Make yourself right at home, have a virtual custard slice and feel free to add comments, quips and sarky remarks. But first, let's have a quick gander at some of the week's memorable lines:
Leanne gives Simon some sage advice while Peter listens:
"Liars never win, do they Peter?"
(he'll get back to you after he's had an "orange juice")
Even Mrs. Foster is appalled by Frank's behaviour
"You can't just use people and throw them away"
(just watch him)
Mrs. Foster can't believe that Sally can't see the truth:
"You are a stupid woman"
(don't sugarcoat it. Tell her what you really think)
Sally confronts Frank and his duplicitous ways:
"I can't believe how stupid I've been"
(I sense a theme here)
Jenny to Frank about Sally:
"Poor cow's really fallen for you"
(Think of Jenny as the udder woman)
Frank threatens Sally:
"The last woman who crossed me. She lived to regret it"
(So I'm assuming it wasn't Edith Piaf)
Deirdre sees that Peter is very drunk:
"I've got two words for you: Deja Vu"
(phew, that's a relief. For a moment there...)
Sally tells Kevin how bad Frank is:
"Even you're worth ten of him and that's saying something"
(So the current exchange rate is 1 Kev = 10 Franks)
One more expression of loathing from Sally:
"You're vile Frank Foster"
(the three words that describe you are as follows, and I quote, "Stink, Stank, Stunk" - apologies to Dr. Seuss)
Frank Foster after Carla signs over the factory for a pittance:
"Underworld is mine"
(boy, he makes Dr. Evil look like Santa Claus)
Well, lovers of Corrie, that's it for another week. Before I leave you for the weekend, a quick shout out to John over at Corrie Canuck who is busy preparing for his nuptials. I have always enjoyed John's posts and I wish him all the best and a wonderful summer. Have a great weekend and meet me back here next week for more of the Hip. Cheers!
