Coronation Street Catch Up: the part of the male anatomy edition

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

Guess what? Vinny is alive and well and chatting on Skype with his old ex-pal Pat Phelan.

As you recall, Vinny and Pat were partners in crime fleecing the punters with a scam involving fake flats. Vinny scarpered with the money leaving Pat to finagle his way of a jam.

Well, now it seems like payback time and Pat is awaiting the return of his partner (threatening to harm Vinny's poor old Mum as an incentive).

Maybe the two of them just want to reminisce about old times... or, maybe Pat wants Vinny to be chained up in the basement of his Airbnb dungeon. Either way, Andy is getting super excited at the idea of a replacement prisoner. Let the good times roll.

Nicola is pregnant and has decided to have the baby. The dad? Gary Windass (take that, Phelan).

On the Underworld front, the cops arrest Todd and Adam in connection with the theft of factory machines but let them both go. Meanwhile the ramifications of a post-Underworld economic climate continue (I blame Brexit).  Chesney returns to work but has another panic attack.

Rana is very conflicted about her feelings for Kate. Kate is confused by Rana's confusion. Where will it end? And what about Zeedan?

Colin is hanging around like a bad smell and keeps pushing to seal the deal for the Kabin and Rita's flat.

Cathy and Brian head off to a Boney M tribute band concert, Phoney M (I wouldn't be surprised if the opening act was Boney M). But their plans are thwarted by a prank on the part of Amy and Asha.

Summer is recruited into a junior band of troublemakers and is challenged to deface the car of a teacher. As Todd and Billy have a falling out, Summer becomes more upset and when Simon finds a joint and dares her to try it, she does and passes out.

Mary's son and daughter-in-law and grandchild arrive in Weatherfield but it's clear that Jude's wife is irritated by Mary.

And at the Rovers, a Newton and Ridley bigwig (at least that's what it says on his business card), is unhappy with the quality of the ale and Liz manages to turn this to her advantage, pledging to sweet talk the talented Mr. Ridley, in exchange for less toilet duty.

And now for some lines from the week that was:

Nicola announces the name of the father of her child to Eileen and Pat:
"It's Gary Windass"
(great news, right Pat)

Colin reveals his nickname to Todd:
"Your nickname was Palm Pilot?"
(an obsolete compendium of useless data? Sounds about right)

Kate to Aidan on the sorry state of Underworld
"If you'd just learn to keep it in your pants, none of this would have happened"
(maybe he can take an evening course at the local college?)

An annoyed teacher recounts what was drawn on the side of her car by Summer:
"Let's just say it was part of the male anatomy"
(Adam's apple?)

Liz to Toyah re: Tom Ridley
"I can't count the number of times he's undressed me with his eyes"
(is that because it's zero?)

Liz to Toyah again:
"basically, you want to pimp me out"
(think of it as Tinder for seniors)

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
