- Liam to Tom "You just got whacked by a hacked off woofa. Try saying that when you're drunk!"
- Lloyd to Rita about the photos "She was lovely once, she'll always have that to console her" (ouch but it was still nice)
- Tom "He's an eejit, that's what's the matter with Liam!" (sour grapes, anyone?)
- Jerry to Mel "Just don't pinch anyone we know!"
- Marcus to Sean "I'm tired of being your straight man"
- Norris "It's the perennial 2B or not HB question" (re: pencils)
- Amber "I've just thought of a brilliant name for the Indian film industry if it's raining... Brollywood!"
You know, Tom really was sending Sean mixed signals. And it all fell apart badly when Sean's jealously got out of hand and Marcus got annoyed and thumped Tom and they broke up. He tells Sean if they can't trust each other they've nothing. And he's right about "Planet Sean". Sean is very self absorbed. Too bad, i really liked Marcus. Meanwhile Tom decides to charm Carla into investing in LadRags and Carla seems to like the idea of being a secret partner. Likes having something to hold over Maria, more like. Tony's not going to like that! Neither is Maria! But how did the house get filled with Tshirts when Tom and Liam hadn't even made the deal with LadRags yet? Everyone is in a snit. Liam doesn't want Carla, Tom is ticked that Liam won't accept her money, Maria's narked because Liam's in a bad mood over it all. Liam's on the rampage and charges over to Carla's. Why? So that she can feed him spag bol sauce and flash her considerably large.... eyes... at him.
Mel and Abbie's trouble with the chav girls didn't come out too well, did it, for Abbie! She had some nasty eye damage and has decided to quit the force. Mel, of course feels hugely guilty. Meanwhile Jerry is all over Teresa like starch on rice and rightly so. Why on earth don't they think they can make the assault charge (on a cop with another cop as witness) stick? Aww but Abi doesn't think she's going to want to stay a cop if she can't be out on the streets.
How on earth could anyone see Roy Cropper and remotely think he could be a drug supplier? that was a ridiculously contrived storyline all designated to get Becky back in Roy's good books. I suppose it would take something like that, though. it was sweet seeing her and Roy and Ken walking arm in arm after the police let them go and awww Becky bought Roy a new briefcase and coat. At least all that got them back together, so to speak, in the cafe. Norris and the mobile phone is stupid too. Though i do think Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy would suit Doris as well ;) That whole storyline with first the funeral arrangements and then the photos in the envelope that were something and nothing was absolutely mind numbingly boring and contrived.
Stape's granny has died and Fiz went to the funeral. Pretty measely funeral too, you'd think there would be more people there. Stape was on the phone to his mother, why wasn't she there? If it wasn't her mother, it was her mother-in-law. It's all contrived to get Fiz and John sucking face again.
It was raining when Ken and Roy returned the phone and got arrested but it wasn't raining on Coronation Street. Well, it might have been but nobody was coming in and out of the put looking the least bit damp. Becky was particularly grungy looking this week, walking around with messier hair than usual and looking like she was still wearing last night's rave makeup.
Amber seems to have transferred her affections to Darryl pretty quickly once David dumped all over her. Nina says her daughter is non stop drama. Wonder where she learned that from? Tyrone has prostituted himself for science. I really liked that grey tweedy jacket with the big black button that Rita was wearing this week. I wish Rita would just spill her guts and ask Emily about the photos, the photos she hasn't even seen herself! So what if they find out Norris has been snooping again! Bugger him! And why does Norris think he deserves to get Emily's house after she dies? She sold it to Richard Hillman and it was deemed a legal transaction so won't it have to pass to Gail who was a director of the company or did Gail just let it drop and tear up the papers? If that's the case, i should think she'd pass it on to Spider, not Norris.
