Tony Gordon It's Sunday: the Anglesey hideout edition

note: no spoilers were used in the preparation of this post

Apologies to all Corrie Confreres. This week, Tony Gordon It's Friday (TGIF) has become TGIS, Tony Gordon It's Sunday, due to factors beyond my control (48 hours of skiving? - ed).  It seems that the Great Tyrone & Fiz Caper has polarized the Street. Some think Ty is a monster, some think Kirsty is a monster. Let's just agree that Norris is annoying and call it quits. Anyhoo, I forewarn you, dear punters and punterettes, that it has not been a banner week for great quotes (certainly not following Lewis' unforgettable limited edition DVD). But one must soldier one, mustn't one?

Marcus observes that Maria has finally had enough of Beth, Kirk & Craig in her apartment:
"I think it was the rat that broke the camel's back"
(darn, and just when Darrell the Rat was getting some decent story lines)

Sophie complains to Sally about having to look after baby Ruby:
"Just because I'm a Christian, doesn't mean I have to babysit everyone"
(actually I think it does, check the fine print in the Paul's first letter to the Corinthians) 

Kirk's observation while wandering through a bar on Canal Street
"I love gays, me"
(hmm, here's case where 'don't ask, don't tell' might actually be a good thing)

Tommy defends Tyrone's mental state to Chesney:
"The only head case round here is Kirsty"
(... and maybe Tracy)

Sylvia tells Anna that looking after Faye is no problem:
"I've always had a way with children"
(I guess that's why Roy hid in a trunk during his birthday party)

Norris pontificates to all and sundry in the Rovers about Tyrone and Fiz:
"This is John Stape all over again"
(but without the murder and the psychopathy)

Norris again:
"Abduction is abduction"
(Fussbudget is fussbudget)

Audrey doesn't like Norris' sentiments:
"Your'e a one man lynch mob"
(although the sweater vest makes him less menacing)

Beth curtails her anger at being turfed out by Maria:
"You're lucky I'm feeling randy otherwise we'd be having this out right now"
(when Beth is feeling randy, no-one is really lucky...except maybe Kirk)

Marcus assures Maria about his feelings for her: 
"Replace the word 'gay' with 'happy' and that's where I am in my life"
(So now you support happy marriage?)


Well, that's it for the week. What on earth will Fiz and Tyrone do in Anglesey? On the down side, they only have a few quid left. On the plus side, they could visit the village with the longest official place name in the United Kingdom, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Although, just saying the name a few times would probably use up an entire episode. Ah well, just a thought.
Enjoy your Sunday and thanks so much for your kind comments and for visiting the Hip. I'll meet you here next week as the saga of Ty and Fiz continues. Till then, have a great week!
