Coronation Street TGIF: The FIFA World Cup edition

please note this post makes reference to the July 5 episode on CBC

And by FIFA, of course, I mean 'Fiz Is Feeling Anxious' and I'm not alluding in any way,shape or form to the stringently copyrighted international football governing body known for its litigious nature. Further communications should be directed to our lawyers: Slingya, Hook & Bard.

Still, footie comes to mind when it comes to the ongoing saga of Peter Barlow. Instead of shouting: "GOOOOOOOOAL!", one could shout, "GAAAAAAAOL!"  Because ol' Pete could be heading to Weatherfield Penitentiary (slogan: Stay for two years and the third year is free!). But I digress (what else is new? - ed). How about a few lines from the week that was:

Roy cites The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, Edward Fitzgerald's translation of poems:
"One thing is certain the rest is lies, The flower that once had love forever dies"
(another thing is certain so just be wary, when playing chess with that crazy Mary)

Carla manages to sabotage a contract by insulting a customer and tells Rob and Michelle why:
"We're not working with lechy blokes anymore"
(well, there goes the business)

Tracy forbids Rob from leaving her to check on Carla:
"It's Tracy time"
(not to be confused with 'Tracy's doing time')

David finds out that Gail has written to the burglar:
"Rock on Gail"
(looks like Gail has a new felon in her life)

Deirdre challenges Peter not to run away from his problems:
"For once in your life don't be a coward"
(yeah, be a bigger (not bigamist) man)

Carla lashes out at Peter:
"I wish it was you that was dead"
(to Peter that sounds like she might want to get back together)

Dennis challenges Norris to step outside the Rovers for a punch-up but Norris refuses:
"This is not a wild west saloon"
(although seeing Norris and Dennis fight would be quite a 'Bonanza')

Deirdre tells Rob and Peter to stop fighting:
"You're upsetting Eccles"
(she's hardly touched her ocean pie)

Liz to Tony when he offers to help making snacks for Rovers' customers:
"Bet you've never buttered a barm in your life"
(I pray that's not a euphemism)

Rita's touching eulogy for Tina:
"She brought joy to my life... Tina, rest in peace, darling"


Well, discerning devotees of Corrie, so ends another week and the coppers (who seems to have a fair amount of spare time to attend funerals, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs etc.) are zeroing in on Peter Barlow as a suspect. But we all know Peter doesn't have the bottle (well, actually he usually does have a bottle but not in that sense).  Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and thanks also for your comments. Have a great week and see you here at the Hip next week. Cheers!
