Coronation Street Catch-Up: the Phelan gets conked on the head... again, edition

a look back at last week (or two) on Canada's Coronation Street.

First my apologies for not posting last week. Holiday festivities diverted me from my routine and access to the Internet was limited as I was swaddled in the Christmas splendour of Rexdale where (rumour has it) Santa's secret workshop is nestled behind the Canadian Tire at Albion Mall.

But, to the business at hand. Phelan has once again been conked on the head (last time it was courtesy of Gary Windass). This time it's hapless Andy who tried to play whack-a-mole on Pat's noggin.

The result? Pat's recovering nicely in hospital (where they still have his previous x-rays on file), Kev is the prime suspect, Eileen is re-enamoured of the scandalous slaphead and Andy (whom Phelan can identify as the assailant) will now be blackmailed to be the bald bully's puppet.

Bad news at the caf. The wedding between Roy and Cathy is off. Can they still be friends? Apparently not as the caf is now up for sale. A bit dramatic but then, that's the way Roy rolls.

Robert is secretly in love with Michelle but hides his true feelings even as the twosome seem to be thrown together all the time while Steve wrestles with a flat screen TV as a Christmas gift.

Maria has a one-night stand with Adam Barlow to make Aidan jealous. Tracy Barlow has a multiple night stand with Luke to make Amy less suspicious. Peter and Nick are at odds over Leanne.

And Mary and Norris undertake the search for Mary's son whom she has not seen since his birth (thanks to her Mom who gave him away - the son, not Norris).  While they do indeed find a young man named Jude, it is not her son. Turns out that the real Jude is more obscure than they thought. The search continues.

Now for a few lines from the week (or so) that was:

Johnny reminds Aidan that he's going out with the lovely Eva:
"You're shacked up with a crackin' bit of stuff"
(which I believe is what they said to Edward VIII when he married Wallis Simpson)

Yasmeen comments on her new hairdo from Nessa:
"I feel an Asian Dolly Parton"
(don't worry: hair today, gone tomorrow) 

Gail to Andy re: Michael:
"We had a special place"
(the ice-cream van?)

Kev is incredulous at Luke's new girlfriend:
"You and bloodsucker Barlow )
(That's Ms. bloodsucker Barlow)

Nessa tries to console Cathy after her breakup with Roy:
"the best way to get over a man is to get under another"
(with his permission, of course)

Eileen to Phelan who's recovering in hospital:
"When I get home, I'm going to treat you like a king"
(he already got crowned)

Mary to the young man who could be her long lost son:
"Jude, this might be a bit of a shock but I might be your birth mom"
(..and, by the way, how do you feel about carbon emissions trading?)

Sinead to party pooper Chesney:
"Chillax Ebenezer"
(so says the ghost of Christmas 'busta move')


Well, that's it for the last Corrie shows of 2016. Thanks for being a regular visitor to Blanche's Polish Hip throughout the year and my very best wishes to all of you for a wonderful 2017. Cheers!
