the story so far... Kevin thinks he can solve all his problems with Sally by offloading Baby Jack to Auntie Pam, Julie is devastated by her false pregnancy, Anna enlists 'Crazy Mary' to babysit Faye, Sunita and Karl schedule a legover, Terry seems ready to walk away from his new business following Ty and Kirsty's investigation of council planning shenanigans.
I don't know about you but I, for one, want to know more about Roy Cropper's Bat Fanciers' Association. Who are these people? Where do they come from? Do they only come out at night? Just how much do they 'fancy' bats? Questions, questions. Oh well, I guess all will be revealed in due time. Till then let's have a quick look at some of the memorable lines of the week in a little something which we call, TGIF or Tony Gordon, It's Friday. Roll 'em:
Excerpt from Betty's letter:
"In 92 years I didn't get very far"
(but it was a great journey)
"It's later than you think"
(so Sean better hurry up with that hot pot)
Carla tries to put a lid on Sally's ideas for improving Underworld:
"We don't have to revolutionize women's underwear in one week"
(yes, after all, customers have been wearing the factory's sub-standard knickers for decades)
Tommy corrects Tina's impressions of the staff at the new club:
"They're not strippers, they're lap dancers"
(or, to be more precise, erotic customer service consultants)
Norris chastises Tommy:
"There he is, son of Hugh Hefner"
(I hear his grotto is rather grotty)
Roy is unable to attend a citizen's protest meeting due to a prior commitment
"There's a quarterly meeting of the Bat Fanciers' Association"
(BATFAs for short - not to be confused with BAFTAs, British Academy of Film and Television Arts)
Kev tries to cheer up Sally after learning that Rosie will be staying on in London
"We've still got Sophie"
(don't make her feel worse)
Owen thinks he hears a song coming from the protestors' sit-in:
"Sounds like Bohemian Rhapsody"
(...very, very frightening)
Roy's contribution to the rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody:
(nice one Roy... bit pitchy though)
Terry Duckworth to the protestors:
"I'm the sort of entrepreneur that this country needs"
Norris' grim observation after Audrey's heart episode:
"You never know when the grim reaper's going to strike"
(that's why Archie Shuttleworth's always on standby)
Well, fellow Corrie comrades, that's it for another week. Thanks to everyone for stopping by this week. Your company (and comments) are always welcome and the crew here at Blanche's Polish Hip (Luke Skivewalker, Gordon Tony, Abbey Downton & Sue Vide) are at your service. Have a great weekend and enjoy the omnibus on Sunday. I'll meet you back here next week for more of the Hip.
BTW, the good folks over at Bluenose Corrie Blogger report that Canada is now only two months and a bit behind the UK Corrie watchers. Soon we'll reach that impossible dream: episode parity across the Atlantic. Be still my heart. All the best and cheers!
