Coronation Street TGIF: the 'do not let Peter Barlow seduce you !' edition

please note this post makes reference to the October 24 episode on CBC

It's been a week of thorny questions on the street. Questions like:

"Are you Peter Barlow?" - lawyer to Peter
(he has to be, no one else wants the job)

"Why are so many adults rubbish?" - Simon to Rob Connor
(you're asking the right man)

"Do you like trains, Mr. Cropper?" - lawyer to Roy
(do fish engage in nautical forward propulsion?)

"Who else knew about this unsavoury detail?"  - prosecutor to Peter
(sounds like a packet of pork scratchings)

Of course, the big story is Peter's trial. How's it going, you ask. Don't ask. Steve made a cock up of his testimony and Peter's track record speaks for itself. Carla however is mellowing. Elsewhere, Roy changes his mind about scattering Hayley's ashes at Blackpool. He's also being bullied and possibly vandalized by a bunch of yobbos. Tony and Liz are glaring at each other from across a crowded bar but no one's saying sorry. (Well, it is the hardest word - ed). Seducto Master Luke is helping Audrey get over her 'fear of driving' (so that's what the kids call it these days - ed). Oh, and Todd the Waster™ is 'working' at Rob and Tracy's consignment (aka cheap tat) emporium.

And now for a few more lines of the week:

Leanne tells the court about her matrimonial history:
"Well, marriage to Peter was never boring"
(oh really? have you forgotten about Meatloaf Fridays?)

Todd to Eva about working at Rob and Tracy's shop:
"I've always wanted to be a pawn star"
(that will probably happen after you're fired from this job)

Ken pauses during the trial to inform Rita about the origins of 'decorum':
"Actually it's a Latin word"
(yes, just like the phrase 'Penthouse forum')

Norris is outraged when he learns his testimony is not required:
"I have important evidence to impart"
(tell it to the judge. No wait, don't tell it to the judge)

Eileen walks in on Todd playing drums at the shop:
"You could always form a band and call it Feckless"
(I think I saw them at Maple Leaf Gardens. I believe they opened for April Whine)

Prosecution lawyer to jury:
"Do not let Peter Barlow seduce you"
(too late, he's already sleeping with half the jury and buying booze from the other half)

Well, fellow conquistadors of Corrie, so ends another week and the trial is heading to a dramatic conclusion. Will the jury find Peter guilty?  Will Rob evade justice? Will Audrey have another car date with Luke? Only time will tell. In the meantime, have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by. I'll meet you here next week. Cheers!
