Coronation Street Catch Up: the mother of all hen-do's edition

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

Now that's what I call a Hen Do: several fake Carlas, loud music, unruly women, a drunken Gail and a couple of male strippers, er.. I mean coppers (my mistake).

Well, much to Gail's dismay and disappointment, the male strippers in police uniforms who arrive at the night club turn out to be members of Weatherfield's finest and all the Hen Do Participants are rounded up and taken to the cop shop.

No harm done except that, following the festivities, Nick breaks off the wedding with Carla. Carla eventually finds out that it's because of Nick's brain injury which causes him to throw cell phones and other items.

Elsewhere, Jason makes up with Eileen in the wake of his father's death. Phelan is continuing to weasel his way into the family despite Todd's suspicions.

Over in Plattland, Sarah is on edge living in the house which also serves as the manhole tomb for Callum. Gail is doing her best to welcome Carla into the family.

Sean and Rev Billy are not getting along. Sinead and Chesney are not a happy couple. Caitlin dumps Craig.

Sally rejects Tim's surprise vacation getaway to Blackpool (England's answer to the French Riviera with less sun and more rolled up pant legs).  Tim goes to Blackpool anyway with Kevin and baby Jack. Sally has second thoughts and heads over to the seaside jewel of Lancashire to save her marriage

Speaking of Blackpool, ol' Johnny takes Jenny Bradley (Underworld cleaner and former baby kidnapper) to the seaside resort to commemorate the place where her father was run over by a tram while trying to kill Rita (it's a long story, don't ask).

And now a few lines from last week:

Sally doesn't understand why Kate and Caz are so critical:
"I don't know why I'm getting all this hostility from the lesbian community tonight"
(it's not just tonight)

Sally doesn't understand why Tim doesn't appreciate her ambition:
"People like me would be lauded in America"
(like the Kardashians or stuffed crust pizza)

Nick to Carla:
"I don't want to marry you"
(but it's nothing personal)

Johnny tells Jenny why he wants to go to Blackpool:
"...just an excuse to get on a donkey"
(I hope that's not a euphemism)

Carla tells Michelle that Gail dotes on Nick:
"She calls Air Sea rescue every time he's late for his tea"
(Just ask Prince William)

Todd to Sean re: Rev Billy's secrecy:
"He's got to be discreet like a doctor or a prostitute"
(more like a doctor I would think)

Sally to Sophie:
"I'm going to Blackpool, I need to save my marriage"
(Sure, if your marriage is on the rocks, you may as well have some Blackpool rock)


Well, punter pals, so ends another week. Thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings. Have a great week and all the best!
