Coronation Street Catch Up: the pornographic message in a bouquet edition

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

The Kabin gets robbed and the cops are on the lookout for two jars of humbugs and several bricks of sherbet with a street value of £7.20.

Poor Rita is traumatized and points the fickle finger of fate at Gemma, working in tandem with her two thugette pals from the estate: Sherlock and Mycroft. Gemma is innocent but her protestations fall on deaf ears.

Luke and Alya become flat mates with benefits (their own shelves in the fridge?) but decide to keep it quiet lest Kate find out. Alya also finds out that Gary is planning a secret dangerous mission to Ukraine - not Hamburg as everyone thinks. However Sarah discovers the truth while Gary is heading to the airport

Nicola is flat hunting and enlists the help of Daddy Dearest, Pat "Felonius" Phelan. She doesn't get the flat and Phelan looks pissed. Seems builders don't like builders who rip off builders.

Liz gets scammed by a fake Vape bargain (a dishonest purveyor of Vape accessories? surely not?) Rosie gets a job with the esteemed legal firm of Barlow & Grimshaw, skivers at law. Chesney quits his job at Kebabs 'R' Us and refuses to go back. 

Eva re-energizes her revenge plan when she overhears Johnny and Aidan talking about Aidan's long legover history with Maria.  Eva subsequently insists on a double wedding with Johnny/Jenny, gives her onerous wedding planning job to Maria and takes off for Spain.

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

Mary is outraged by Tracy's dirty note accompanying the flowers Steve ordered for Leanne:
"pornographic messages in our bouquets, what's next?"
(on time deliveries?)

Rosie gets a job with Adam and Todd:
"I'm finally in the crime game"
(and the first crime was hiring Rosie)

Steve doesn't think he's a great catch:
"What kind of woman wants a bloke who's funny?"
(Amy Schumer?)

Gemma tires to convince Chesney to return to the kebab shop:
"This is your spiritual home"
(think of it as a church with hot sauce)

Gemma to Rita re: her choice of bridal dress:
"I've always wanted to look like a sexy robot from the future"
(Most likely a Dalek)

Eva tells Adam she has a change of heart:
"Underneath that pillocky exterior, I think I just got a glimpse of a guy with a heart"
(No, that's just his pillocky interior)

Maria to Aidan:
"If you go ahead with this wedding, you're more of a fool than I thought"
(how much of a fool did you think he was?)

Johnny to Kate about Kate's suspicions that something is going on between Luke and Alya:
"This isn't some kind of menage a trois?"
(No, more like a menage a deux)

Well, Corrie Comrades, so ends another week with Gary headed to the Ukraine, Eva headed to Spain and Gemma headed to the cop shop.  Hopefully things will work out. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week. Cheers!
