When Wendy Flaming Crozier asks Ken if he's happy, he replies: "Happy Enough." Not exactly a resounding endorsement of Ken's marriage, is it? Ah well, the way things are going, Wendy Crozier is one of the few bright spots on the street. What with Sophie's accident, the on and off again surrogacy and Roy's reprimand, it's a bit of a dour week on the street. So let's get with the program and do some TGIF..even if it's on Saturday.
Gloria continues with the seduction of Lewis:
"I bought us two tickets for the dog track"
(don't worry, her bark is worse than her bite)
Kevin does his traditional beating up of the person who wronged his family (Ryan):
"You little toerag"
(he's not that little)
Mary finds out that Kylie was responsible for squealing on her theme nights:
"Deceitful little madam"
(for Kylie, that's a compliment)
Rita shares her suspicions about Lewis and Gloria to Emily:
"I think those two are up to something"
(please refer to dog track above)
Lewis promises to keep Gloria's 'secret':
"I'll do anything you ask"
(as long as it doesn't involve the dog track again)
Rita tells Tommy what she thought of his dad:
"Terry had a black hole where his heart should be"
(yeah, apparently he sold his heart to a loan shark for 500 quid)
Wendy offers Ken a sympathetic ear:
"We'll find somewhere quiet to have a chat"
(like your bedroom perhaps?)
Sylvia has a proposition for Lewis:
"I'd like to take you out to dinner"
(As long as there are no dogs involved)
Ken explains to Deirdre why there's nothing going on between him and Wendy:
"Too old, clapped out, past it"
(Oh come on Ken! You can still have a legover if you put your mind to it)
Well, that's it for the week. I'm still snowed under with work so my skiving is suffering, and the best part of skiving is watching Corrie. Still, I'm hoping to get some more free time soon to explore a few thorny questions like: why does Kevin always feel the need to punch out someone when something bad happens to his home/family/business? and what really is the best way to test Lewis' intentions? Till then, have a great weekend and see you soon here at the Hip. Cheers!
