Coronation Street TGIF: The Flush and Go edition

please note this post makes reference to the December 19 episode on CBC

My goodness! Can you believe the randy behaviour at Peter and Carla's wedding? There were more legovers than an erotic Can Can festival. Elsewhere on the Street, it looks like Dev is back to being Dev with a wacky scheme to get in shape. David is getting back to the salon and Tim is getting into the window cleaning business. Now, how about a few lines of the week:

Carla wants Peter to get a DJ or a band for their reception: 
"I just don't want silence at my wedding"
(what about adultery?)

Tim's assessment of Eva:
"She puts the 'chest' in Manchester, that's for sure."
(and who puts the 'man' in Manchester?)

Sally reminds Jason how he did a runner from his last wedding:
"I was telling Tim about how you escaped through the toilet window"
(sounds like another case of 'flush and go') 

Peter shares a joke with Tina:
"You know what they say about monogamy - damn fine wood"
(You know what they say about Tina - she's pine-ing for you and making a terrible mistoak)

Sally applauds her boyfriend's business idea:
"Tim's thinking outside the box"
(oh no, maybe we should seal up the box) 

The sign on Tim's new van:
"Flush and go"
(how about changing it to 'Skiver Driver'?)

Crazy Mary doesn't mind if David does her hair:
"David has had his hands on my split ends on more than one occasion"
(and he wasn't even doing her hair)

Peter's wedding vow to Carla:
"I want to look after you because you make me a better man"
(Wait, are you talking about Tina or Carla?)

Tina tells Fiz she doesn't want to stay at the wedding reception:
"I think I'm getting off"
(you certainly will be later)

Peter's speech at his wedding:
"We can't help who we fall in love with"
(that's why they invented bigamy)

Loved the wedding! Especially that artisanal vow which Peter wrote. How did it go again? "An old Apache proverb says that if you follow a crooked path across a stream, then you will have it off with a fit bird..." or something like that. Anyhoo, you get the idea. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. You are always welcome here at the Hip. Cheers!
