Coronation Street Catch-Up: the Monogamy is not the Scottish New Year edition

a look back at last week on Canada's Coronation Street

A dead body in the canal? Could be anyone. Given the number of corpses clogging up the Weatherfield waterways, it's not so much a mysterious death as it is a water sediment issue.

But that's not how Sarah sees it. She's losing it and going to see the coppers because she thinks the police have found Callum. Won't she feel foolish when she finds out Callum was under Gail's flat all along.

Speaking of the flat, what is it with contractors? Just because Callum's cemented body is gurgling up on Gail's floor, Tony and Gary want to waste more time and money trying to figure out why. That's just going to jack up the price of Gail's granny flat conversion.

Elsewhere, things are pretty grim for Ty and Fiz and Hope after Hope's diagnosis of cancer. Meanwhile, over at the factory, Carla has an unexpected new partner: Aidan's Dad. Seems like a nice chap. And it seems Roy is taking Ken to a classical music concert (sorry Cathy).

On the brighter side, Tim and Sally finally got married despite Sally's pre-nup snog with Kevin. And, Sally gave Tim a big present: a van for his business. Nice. Now they can go off on their honeymoon.

And now for a few lines from the week that was:

Underworld's new partner, Johnny, asks Carla where the company money went:
"I acquired a gambling habit"
(oh that explains it)

Sally tells Rita she's upset about Tim:
"I've got an appointment with a bottle of wine"
(actually, the wine just called to cancel)

Yasmine tells Sharif she wants the guilty person to pay for Kal's death: 
"A callous murderer is free"
(that would be Tracy}

Sarah is shocked to discover that Kylie is using Callum's cellphone:
"You can't go texting people from a dead man's phone"
(not unless you have the unlimited deceased calling plan from your mobile phone provider)

Sally thinks Tim will show up if she goes ahead with the wedding:
"If you build it, they'll come"
(especially if there's free food and booze)

Tim is shocked to learn that Sally kissed Kevin:
"You think monogamy is the Scottish New Year"
(she's no serial Hogmanist - that's for sure)

Customer to Carla re:her underwear products:
"I've seen more fabric in a sparrow's hanky"
(I guess less is more)

Well, Corrie comrades, so ends another week. It's only a matter of time before Callum's concrete mausoleum dissolves and then I guess David and Kylie will have to find another hiding place for the ex ex-con. How about the washroom at the Dog and Gun?  I hear no-one ever goes in there. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week. Cheers!
