Corrie Canada weekly awards: August 6 - 10
Gentle moment of the week: Roy practicing chess moves with the salt and pepper shakers!
That went well award: For all of Gary's complaining about babysitting, he was well chuffed about being a dad!
Deal with the Devil award. Mata Hari Star: Tracy thought she could be a double agent to spy for Steve and ruin Lloyd's new company. She was rubbish at it and went too far.
In Joke award: Lloyd said you "Smeg" monsters, channelling Red Dwarf!
Are you new here award: Gold Star: Seriously, would Lloyd REALLY take anything Tracy says as truth let alone hire her???? Do the math..."really bad day"...Tracy's first day on the switch. Coincidence?
Silver star: Carla reckons 9 year olds love smoked salmon, hummous and olives for party food?? And why was there champagne/sparking cider (or whatever) on the table and sad songs on the stereo?
Bronze Star: You'd think Tracy would finally clue in that Steve doesn't want her after all this time but no, she still tries and still gets knocked back. And Steve... Can't understand why Tracy won't help him out. You spent the last episode or two slagging her off and trying to eject her out of her home without any notice. What do you think?
Sports Day award: Well, wrestling *is* a sport after all.
Restaurant from Hell award: With the collapses, explosions, arguments and fights that happen regularly in the Bistro, I'm surprised they have any customers at all.
Sibling rivalry award: Rob and Carla certainly seem to have had a rocky relationship
Repartee award: Tracy winding Norris up. This could be fun.
Useless Suck Up Twit award: Brian really is clueless. He can't even stand up for a kid being bullied because the bully is related to the school governor.
Underestimating award: Roy doesn't see that Mary is indeed Doo-lally. Hayley does.
It's All About Me award: Peter interrupts business meetings, conversations, disappearing first on his own and now with Simon, you name it, because his problems are more important than anything else. He doesn't know who he *can* talk to about Leanne taking Simon away? Um. Solicitor?
Reality check award: Peter is finally realizing he made the wrong sacrifice. Simon is more important than anything. Pity he didn't think of that before.
Heart in mouth award: Ken and Leanne thought they might have to identify Peter's body.
From a Bang to a Whimper: Carla and Peter are over.
From a Whimper to a Bang: Kirsty flew off the handle again.
Lines of the week:
Steve "I have a cunning plan!" (does that make anyone else shudder?)
Steve "When it comes to fighting dirty, I know which side I want Tracy on!"
Lloyd to Tracy "Have I got MUG written on me forehead?"

Steve "We could call it Judas Cabs if that makes you happy"
Nick baiting Peter "You should have Victim tattooed across your forehead"

Carla "It's me, me, me" Peter "No, it's Simon, Simon, Simon"
Anna "Here he goes again. The Sage of flamin' Weatherfield"
Nick about carrot cake "You don't see many rabbits with glasses on" (channeling me dad who always said that! I still hate carrots! I wear glasses. connection?)
Beth to Tracy "You're the best housemate I ever had" (Really????)
Mary "I'm afraid i mated your husband. Twice"
Roy "I know it's easy to dismiss Mary as an eccentric" Hayley "That's probably down to the fact that she's completely doo-lally" (And Roy doesn't see it. Yet.)
