Coronation Street TGIF: the Dev Allahan surprise party edition

please note this post makes reference to the March 11/12 episode on CBC

A mug from your kids?   $7.99
A birthday card from Sophie Webster?  $3.00
Having a dozen punters jump out from behind the couch to yell "surprise!" while you're trying it on with Stella?  Priceless.  

Ah well. Into every life, a little Dev must fall. Cheer up, it could be worse. You could have just clocked Feelin' (er, I believe that's Phelan - ed) with a two by four (er, I believe that's a three by two - ed).
Onward with some lines from last week.

Liz expounds on her traditional relationship preferences:
"I'm an old fashioned girl"
(circa 1900)

Sally reminds Tim of the dress code for Dev's party:
"casual not scruffy"
(He looks like a first mate from Mutiny on the Bounty)

Stella proposes a toast to Dev
"Here's to being 50 and may good things happen to both of us"
(well, one of us anyway)

Peter reassures Tina:
"I have massive respect for you"
(so that's what the kids are calling it these days)

Maddie describes Norris:
"He's like Gollum without the personality"
(ouch, that's an insult to Gollum)

Eileen describes Liz's dating style:
"She doesn't have landing, she has a waiting room"

Carla is determined to cook for Peter:
"I have been Googling Indonesian cuisine"
(better Google 'Indonesian antidote' while you're at it)

Liz warns Tina about Peter (again):
"He is a selfish, lying alcoholic"
(you left out 'bigamist')


Well, lovers of Corrie, that's it for another week. Let's hope Gary and Owen can find a way to deal with Phelan - that does not involve assault and battery. I have to say I'm not crazy about either Jason's Dad or Kal's Dad. They both seem cut from the same cloth and I don't find either character that interesting. And of course, there's Peter Barlow.  

Don't even get me started!  

I'm hoping for some good story lines to begin soon. Seems we've had a bit of a letdown following the Roy/Hayley saga. Anyhow. Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by. Cheers!
