Coronation Street Catch Up: the "my daughter, the drug mule" edition

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

Thanks, Gail for helping out at the cafe (after accusing Shona of theft)! But next time, could ya' maybe wash your hands before putting your mitts all over the punters' sticky buns?

Hygiene aside, it's been a busy week on the Street. Sally is leading a crusade against the sexist construction workers and using a megaphone to get her point across. She also found out that her private-school educated daughter was a drug mule (was that featured on career day at Oak Hill?).

Sinead and Chesney are really kaput especially after Ches was caught selling off Sinead's stuff in the kebab shop. Ken is somewhat shocked by Daniel's pugilist tendencies when he scuffles with Ches.

Speaking of pugilism, the cat fight of the week featured Michelle winning a unanimous decision over Eva while removing her from the pub by her follicles.

This followed a dramatic week when Steve admitted that he was the father of Oliver (termed "back-up baby" by Michelle). All hell broke loose afterwards among the Platts, Leanne was furious (as was Nick), while Michelle was livid. She served notice that the marriage was over, demanded half of Steve's stuff (i.e. the Rovers) and locked Steve and Liz out of the Rovers.

Maria (who's in jail) gets a visit from Liam and Eva, meanwhile Aidan is worried that Maria will spill the beans about their affair. Jenny finds a compromising photo and blackmails a client into un-cancelling his order. Oh, and everyone forgets Rita's birthday. She 37... again.

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

Rita to Mary & Cathy:
"I can still touch my toes when the weather's warm"
(don't come to Canada then)

Jenny to Richard the client:
"That appears to be your hand on Jemima's bum"
(or maybe it's her bum on his hand)

Richard to Jenny after being shown incriminating photos:
"You're a conniving little cow"
(and those are her good points}

Michelle is disappointed by Steve's infidelity:
"I always knew you were an idiot, but you were my idiot"
(either way, he's an idiot)

Michelle again to Steve:
"Marrying you was the worst decision of my life"
(....after auditioning for Vernon and getting engaged to Ciaran)

Mary reminisces about her job as an assistant blacksmith:
"I was the only person strong enough to lift the carthorse's leg"
(it's a tough job but someone's got to do it)

Anna to Sally:
"Your successful daughter is a drug mule"
(and not a very good one either)

Eva to Robert re: getting manhandled by Michelle:
"She's just assaulted my weave"
(call the fashion police) 

Well,  Corrie cohorts, so ends another week. You can't help but feel sorry for Steve. Yes, he's an idiot... but he's our idiot. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
