Coronation Street catch-up: the defibrillator-by-the-bed edition

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

Have you noticed that Callum knocks at the Platts' front door about three times a day? And yet the Platts always seems surprised?

Anyhoo, Callum got roughed up by some thugs while Jason was planning to rough up Callum, but then the thugs roughed up Jason - until Tony showed up and threatened to rough up the thugs but not before Jason roughed up Callum. Phew!

Now Callum is threatening the Platts unless they give him 20,000 pounds and Jason is still vowing to exact his revenge on Callum.

Elsewhere, Maria doesn't want Luke to race cars. Tracy is released by the police but won't admit to anyone (except Carla and Robert) that she started the fire in the flat that killed Kal and Maddie.

Meanwhile Andrea is pregnant and before she can tell Lloyd, Steve spills the beans to him. And it seems to be official that Miley is staying in Canada where you can get cheese and gravy on chips, change your tires in winter and speak French.

Cathy has introduced Roy to her nephew Alex and last, and certainly least, Gail is looking forward to moving into the garage and having her own converted mini-flat.

Now for a few lines from the week that was:

Jason tells Eileen that she will be less proud of him when he tackles Callum:
"Be prepared to be unproud"
(you know, like the song 'Unproud Mary')

Robert to Ken:
"Tracy's not a monster. She just trying to do the right thing"
(maybe she's a monster who's trying to do the right thing)

Faye to Tim re: Miley:
"I think she should stay in Canada"

Eileen to Liz re: sex and Michael's dodgy ticker:
"I keep a defibrillator by the bed"
(it's like a vibrator, only with more instructions)

Tracy to Robert after she's been released from custody:
"I smell of Jail"
(the new fragrance by Givenchy)

Max to Callum:
"I don't want you to be my Dad anymore"
(you're fired)

David is buying Gail a meal and doesn't want to hear her complaints:
"I'm not paying to hear you whinge all day"
(he can get that for free)

Callum threatens the Platts:
"Every day I don't see my cash, something bad's gonna happen"
(It's like the 12 days of Christmas - only with fewer turtle doves and more evil)

Well, Companions of the Cobbles, so ends another week. A pregnancy, a beating, a skinful... sounds like business as usual.  Thanks so much for stopping by and all the best. Cheers!
