Tony Gordon It's Friday: the Rovers or Karl edition

please note that this post makes reference to the May 17 episode on CBC

Hey, Stella, it's a no brainer (and no, I don't mean Kirk). Leanne is offering you money to save the pub and, as a bonus, you get to bin Karl!  Now that's what I call a win-win. It's like someone giving you cash and then throwing in a gift certificate for '1-800-Got-Junk' to help you get rid of 175 lbs of trash cluttering up your home. What could be better? Perhaps this week's edition of our award-free TGIF, offering up some of the week's memorable lines:

Carla explains the magic of her gourmet meal preparation to Peter
"It started out cold. I made it hot. That's cooking"
(conversely if it starts out hot and she makes it cold. That's refrigeration)

Eileen's analysis of the male species:
"Waste of skin most of 'em"
(especially Steve)

Paul tells Eileen when he realized that he was making a mistake by leaving
"When the train stopped in Huddersfield"
(No disrespect to Huddersfield, jewel of West Yorkshire)

Rob delivers more pearls of business wisdom to Peter:
"You've got to speculate to accumulate"
(..but it's sinful to have a skinful)

Peter to Ken about Rob's personality:
"He's all mouth and no trousers"
(just the way the ladies like him)

Gloria tells Stella that she's no spring chicken:
"You've got cobwebs on your crows feet"
(you certainly know how flatter a gal)

Norris asks Nick about the Bistro's senior pricing policy:
"Is there a pensioner's discount?"
(Yes, get out and save 100%)

David to Gail regarding the sex of the baby:
"You said you liked surprises"
(Yes, Davey Boy, but you won't)

Gloria shares the Price family motto with Eva:
"A Price always stands her round"
(I guess that's better than 'Semper Ubi, Sub Ubi')

Tyrone promises to have Hayley's vehicle ready on time:
"I'll have your woody shipshape by noon"
(wait, we're still talking about cars, right?)

Jason watches Eileen scoffing dessert:
"Keep calm and carry on eating cake"
(It helped Britain win the war)


Well, lovers of Corrie, that's it for another week. As far as I can tell, Coronation Street remains on its current broadcast schedule (i.e. 6:30 pm in the East) but please check your local listings for the times in your area because you never know. Have a great long weekend and I'll meet you back here next week for more of the Hip. Cheers!
