the story so far... Leslie has met with an unfortunate and fatal accident while in Eileen's care, Terry does a runner with the money leaving Tommy to face Rick the loan shark, Tina is resting comfortably in Weatherfield General, Nick wants David to work in the bistro, the Weatherfield CID are investigating Leslie's death, the war of flowers continues.
Say what you like about the odious loan shark, Rick, he's got staying power. How many businesses can boast the same dependability, reliability and attention to customers? (Rogers and Bell, take note - ed). You have to admire his work ethic, although it is admittedly accompanied by a lack of ethics. Ah well, let's take a quick peek at some of the week's memorable lines in a little something which we like to call TGIF or Tony Gordon It's Friday. Hit it!
Tommy tells Tina what he now thinks about his Dad:
"The guy's a waste of space"
(quite a lot of space, actually)
Sally to Norris and Mary
"Cheshire is my spiritual home"
(Think of her as the Dalai Lama of North West England)
Kirk gets philosophical while chatting in the Rovers:
"Why is a table called a table?"
(I dunno. Why are Sunita's pants painted on? Just another metaphysical conundrum)
David doesn't like Nick's Bistro:
"It's poncey, overpriced and fake - just like Eva"
(don't hold back, tell us what you really think)
Sunita explains why her life needs an affair with Karl:
"I just want a little bit that's private"
('little bit that's private' describes Karl to a tee)
Terry and Tommy explain to Tina that they're tried and failed to think of an alternative to arson
"We've racked our brains"
(... and it really didn't take very long)
Paul describes Norris as an...
"...ignorant little toe rag with too much time on his hands"
(whoa, he's not ignorant, just nosey)
Tina tells Tommy that the arson plan is not on:
"Today's fire's been cancelled"
(is there a rain date?)
Karl tells Sunita where the relationship is heading:
"We both know where this train is going"
(legover station via playing away junction?)
David gets introspective about his reputation on the Street:
"I know what people used call me, Damien, Demon child..."
(Hecuba, Satan, Devil's Spawn, Beelzebub, Lucifer, Mephistopheles, antichrist etc etc.)
Well, lovers of Corrie, that's it for another week. If you're an omnibus watcher, enjoy the Sunday marathon. Stay cool and I'll meet you back here next week for more of the Hip. All the best and thanks for stopping by.
