Coronation Street TGIF: the Blue Rinse Mafia edition

a look back at the week that was on Canada's Coronation Street

The big news is the return of Jenny Bradley. Sure, she's a fraud artist (let's say creative), a user (let's say ambitious) and a liar (let's say imaginative) . But, hey, she seems great on and that's all Kevin cares about. Rita? Not so much. She and her menacing pensioner posse (Norris, Mary & Emily) are not pleased and have marked her cards.

Elsewhere, Gail and Michael are planning their wedding, Luke is trying to tile Maria's back splash (if you know what I mean...). Tony is having trouble with Tracy as they play away and buy dodgy goods together.

Eileen gets a try out as a barmaid and is not very good. Jason is devastated because Eva has broken up with him just because he accused her of having it off with his Dad. Todd is loving it. Craig and Faye watch a video of childbirth.

Now for a few lines from the week that was:

Liz has a few words of advice for Eileen's barmaid career:
"Whatever you do, do not be yourself"
(be Michelle)

Mary to Rita re: the infamous Jenny Bradley:
"Sounds like a vulture and a sponge"
(a spulture?)

Liz catches Tracy and Tony together with a container of dodgy merchandise:
"Let's start with the box"
(sounds like Let's Make a Deal)

Steve notices that Eileen is not very good at pouring beer:
"That's what I call a good head"
(that's not what I call it)

Steve reports back to Liz about Eileen:
"I that woman is guilty of hideous crimes against beer"
(Call the International Tribunal)

Tony's dodgy merchandise pal, Chris, threatens to use her fighting skills on Tracy:
"I'd have you on your back in three seconds"
(she's quite capable of doing that herself, thank you very much)

Lloyd is back and tells Andrea he is suspicious:
"What haven't you told me?"
(how much time do you have?)

Callum has a nickname for Audrey and Gail:
"The Blue Rinse Mafia"
(Audrey is Don Curler-eone)

Kirk confuses albino with Albanian:
"What's an Albanian?"
(anyone from Jessica Alba's extended family)

Well, Corrie Co-conspirators, so ends another week.  I can't wait to see what Jenny Bradley does. Apparently she's like the devil. And, it looks like Tony might have more than he can handle between the tat shop, Tracy and Liz. He's going to need a lot more Queen concert tickets to fix this mess.
Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by. Cheers!


  1. Wow! You were on a roll this week, although, in fairness, the program certainly gave you lots to work with.
    I can't wait to use the double-entendre "tile her backsplash" and see what sort of reaction it elicits.

  2. Thanks for the comment. Sorry for the late reply (finally figured out what was wrong with my blog settings). I myself tend to use extreme caution when referring to 'tiling one's backsplash'. One never knows. All the best.
