Tony Gordon It's Friday (TGIF): The Bonnie (Tracy) and Clyde (Rob) edition

please note this post makes reference to the June 6 episode on CBC

Well, well. It looks like Rob Donovan and Tracy Barlow are quickly becoming Coronation Street's Bonnie and Clyde, leading a wild life of crime and leaving a trail of robberies in their wake. The question is will they escape and live happily ever after like the real Bonnie and Clyde? (er, actually the real Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed and killed in North Louisiana by law officers - ed)
Oh, well, in that case, let's just get on with some of the memorable lines of the week in this week's TGIF:

Carla enters the bookies and Peter tells her where Rob is:
"He's in the back groping my sister"
(Is that one of his official duties as a development consultant?)

Rob wants to know what Carla sees in Peter Barlow:
"What magical power does that man have over you?"
(he's like a chain smoking Harry Potter)

Dev to Stella regarding the re-opening of the Rovers:
"The consumption of alcohol must go on"
(Weatherfield Municipal Bylaw 71 sub-section B)

Tracy to Deirdre after the fake robbery:
"I've been attacked"
(... or not)

Peter tells Carla what her sister is really like:
"Tracy invented a campaign of domestic abuse to cover up a murder"
(Oh, is that all?)

Carla to Peter:
"You've got like an in-built Tracy Barlow lie detector?"
(It's like a GPS without the batteries)

Tina is getting sick of all the Windasses:
"If I see one more Windass..."
(I hear you sister)

Rob is impressed by Tracy's mendacity:
"You just turned lying into an art form"
(yes, she's the Degas of Duplicity)

Rob asks Tracy an important question:
"Did you really murder your ex?"
(murder's such an ugly word. Let's just say we decided to see other people. In his case, an undertaker)

Tracy to Rob:
"Does it really matter?"
(yeah, what's a little homicide between friends?)

Rita to her husband:
"Denis do you know what a mojo is?"
(Ask Norris... to look it up)

Steve tries to explain his relationship with Michelle to Michelle:
"Nobody wears the trousers in our relationship"
(You mean they only have one pair of trousers between them?)


Well, fellow 'Street' Urchins, so endeth another week on the Street. Is it my imagination or do Tina's earrings get bigger with each successive month of her pregnancy? Another of life's mysteries. I must say I'm glad the Rovers has re-opened. I was getting tired of Nick's Bistro (not to mention Nick). Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.  Cheers!
