Yes 'Tony Gordon It's Friday' has been noticeably absent over the past two weeks (mea culpa) but it's back today as we head into the yuletide season. And what a week with Peter Barlow's evil twin (i.e. Peter Barlow) making a sudden appearance with a jaunty goatee and his Caribbean queen (Carla). Aye, it's a rum do (accent on the rum if Peter's involved - ed). Let's cast off with the memorable lines of the week:
Tommy doesn't like Tina's surrogacy:
"You're a test tube with legs"
(yes but a very fit test tube)
Tina explains her pregnancy to the crowd in the Rovers:
"I'm a surrogate mom"
(kind of like what Tracy was after Amy was born)
Beth tries to explain the concept of surrogacy:
"Like a job share"
(except with breastfeeding)
David is frustrated by Kylie's lack of procreative enthusiasm:
"It takes two to make a baby"
(more if Kylie's on the pill)
Stella tries to calm Tina down:
"Go home and take the weight off your gob"
(yes, shouting the odds can be tiring)
Rita likes the fact that Dennis is a school crossing guard:
"I love a man in uniform"
(...and a job)
Steve's taxi is being held up by Dennis at the school crossing:
"I gave you your lollipop back"
(and now it's Dennis' turn to give you stick)
Dennis taunts Steve at the school corssing:
"Go ahead make my day"
(he's like Clint Eastwood in yellow)
"The customer is always wrong"
Lloyd describes Steve as...
"The Obi-Wan Kenobi of small mindedness"
(a real plank Steve is)
Leanne realizes what she's about to do:
"I'm getting married in America"
(and what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas... unless Norris gets wind)
Peter Barlow is back and better than ever:.
"I feel like I'm born again"
(This time around try to stay off the booze)
Kylie tells Tommy she'll kill David for spending the night at Tina's flat:
"What's daft about cold blooded murder?"
(ask Tracy Barlow)
Well, faithful followers, that's it for another week on the street. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and restful holiday.. Thanks for stopping by and spending time at Blanche's Polish Hip. All the best and cheers!
