Coronation Street TGIF: the sleepwalking edition

please note this post makes reference to the July 12 episode on CBC

So, let me see if I've got this straight. Roy's a somnambulist, Izzy & Gary are now pram-bulists, Norris is a fuzzbudget and David is Dr. Evil (Dr Evil is taller - ed). And Gail? Please don't get me started. Let's just keep calm and carry on with a few memorable quotes from the week that was.

Owen while watching CCTV footage with Roy disputes the theory that the cafe burglar is Beth:
"How many birds do you know pee against the wall like that?"
(only one and that was in The Crying Game).

Tommy tells Tina what he really thinks:
"I think you're stealing her baby" 
(but it's nothing personal)

Peter brags to Leanne about his magician prowess:
"I used to do a few card tricks myself"
(and he was very good at Gin Rummy)

Sylvia refutes Roy's theoretical explanations and excuses:
"If ifs and buts were whisky and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas"
(depends on the nuts)

Izzy wants to get back together with Gary:
"If it's just about the sex, I'm not interested"
(unless it's Tina, in which case he's very interested)

Roy is woken by Deirdre as he sleepwalks on the Red Rec:
"Why am I wearing a dressing gown and slippers?"
(Casual Fridays?)

Roy realizes who is responsible for the nocturnal happenings at cafe: 
"I am the ghost"

Kylie can't believe that Peter would be interested in Leanne when he's got Carla:
"Why would you have a digestive when you can have a custard cream?"
(I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles)

Well, fellow Corrie watchers, that's it for another week. Just a reminder that we are still on DAVCON 5, our David Platt evill monitoring system. This means that he is at his highest danger level. As for Gail, well what can you say.. she must own a boating company because she's always sticking her oar in. Anyhoo, have a great weekend and a great week. I'll meet you back here next week and thanks so much for stopping by.
