Sorry, ladies and gentlemen, but our lawyers (Slingya, Hook & Bard) have just advised us that, due to strict Olympic trademark laws, we are no longer able to use the word 'Olympic" in any of our blog posts. Not only that but apparently we are forbidden, for the duration of the er.. event, to utilize the letters 'O', 'L', 'Y', 'M', 'P', 'I' and 'C'. (Are **u fu*k*ng k*dd*ng *e? - ed)
Anyway, let's get to it and damn Jacques Rogge (a friend of Lewis? - ed). Welcome to TGIF, our weekly round up of memorable lines and pithy commentary. Let the games begin:
Tyrone discovers the truth about Tommy and his involvement with Rick:
"Is this the same loan shark?"
(Just how many loan sharks are there in Weatherfield?)
Ken assures Roy that Dennis' stag will not interfere with choice TV viewing:
"There's a documentary on about Roman Aqueducts"
(I came, I saw, I snoozed)
Sunita, dressed as Beyonce, comes up with a novel alibi:
"I had a minor wardrobe malfunction"
(yeah, a boob popped out... and his name was Karl)
Stella won't let Sean leave the Rovers:
"Those hotpots have been impounded"
(but the gristle is free to go)
Kylie (dressed as Amy Winehouse) is perplexed by Maria's outfit:
"Who are the Osmonds?"
(nice family from the US. I believe they sing a little)
Steve insists that he's not Sonny Bono:
"I'm John Lennon"
Stella warns Eva who is parading around in a tight, pointy Madonna outfit"
"Be careful love, you'll have someone's eye out with that"
(another cone bra-related accident)
Dev is suspicious of Sunita:
"You're playing a very dangerous game"
(Yes and it's called 'Away' ...as in 'Playing Away')
Dev tells Sunita that she has unrealistic expectations:
"If George Clooney ran some back street corner shop, maybe he wouldn't be so attractive"
(Er, yes he would, and he'd have a lot of women queuing up to buy cans of beans and toilet paper)
Well, fellow punters and lovers of Corrie, that's it for another week. Stay tuned as Peter deals with a troubled Simon and Simon deals with a troubled Peter. Sunita and Dev are on the brink and, well, it looks like it's all about to kick off. So, enjoy the weekend and the Olymp... er I mean quadrennial international sporting event.. and the omnibus on Sunday. Thanks so much for dropping by and visiting the Hip and I'll meet you back here next week. All the best and remember the Corrie motto: faster, higher, skiver. Cheers!
