Tony Gordon It's Friday: The Human Calculator edition

please note this post makes reference to the Feb 28 episode on CBC

It seems that Roy has a knack with numbers. That's why they call him the human calculator (as opposed to Lewis whom they call the calculating human - ed). Speaking of gigolos, seems ol' Lewis has gone to Belize. And, according to Audrey, Gail has more neck than the Giraffes in Chester Zoo. To paraphrase a famous political leader, that's some neck. But let's put Gail's neck aside for the moment and focus on our weekly round-up of memorable lines which we like to call Tony Gordon It's Friday.

Chesney doesn't like the way Fiz is behaving with Tyrone:
"This is John Stape all over again"
(except Ty hasn't killed anyone)

Kylie tells David she's not happy that Gail took the TV up to her boxroom:
"What did people do before teles?
(watch the radio?)

Audrey tells David that Gail has a high opinion of her role in the family Platt:
"She loves to think that she's the glue that keeps this family together"
(Only if it's Crazy Glue)

Roy discovers the alarming truth about Sylvia:
"You have a gambling problem, mother"
(Problems? Gambling? Quick, call Peter Barlow)

Sylvia wants Roy to use his talent to help win back her money at the casino:
"You are my secret weapon, my ace in the hole, my rain man"
(I'm counting on you... to count the cards)

Dennis is excited by the chance to join Roy's casino caper:
"It's like we're in the rat pack"
(..and Weatherfield is like Las Vegas)

Fiz tells Tina she's worried about Tyrone:
"He's not cut out for prison"
(no, that's Jim McDonald )

Sylvia recounts Roy's exploits to Hayley:
"He used his mathematical skills to beat the bank" 
(you can always count on Roy)

Well, fellow followers of Corrie, that's it for another week. Thanks so much for dropping by and thanks for the comments. I'd like to give a shout out to Conversation Street, a neat Corrie podcast produced in the UK which talks about the show, storylines and other tidbits. It's the perfect podcast to listen to on the bus going to work or driving home, but Canadian viewers should avoid current podcasts as they will contain spoilers (look for the archived podcasts which are in sync with Canadian broadcast dates). Meet you back here next week. Cheers!
