Corrie Canada weekly awards for Feb. 1 - 5
Bully Boy award: Jamie planned to go after Steph because going after Andy and Luke who are the real ones that he should be angry with isn't as easy as scaring a woman. It should also be noted, but not awarded, that though they see the chef leave and haven't seen any customers come in or out for hours, they don't see a problem. They also assume the till will have money in it though the restaurant is dark and empty of customers and clearly closed. Not the brightest bulbs, are they?
Pants on Fire award: Robert, covering the fact that he and Carla had a very long conversation in the Bistro before the accident. Tracy knows he's lying, too.
Twilight Zone award: In what universe would Ken misquote Oscar Wilde as a quote from Chairman Mao and be corrected by Sean Tully? I believe that Sean would know the quote, most of us do. I don't believe that Ken didn't know who said it. ("We're all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars")
Lather, rinse, repeat award: Tracy's blaming Carla for the fling with Robert. It takes two, you know.
Hypocrite award: Phelan upset that the boss builder was ripping Kevin off when he did very similar things on prior projects he ran.
Reformed Man, my eye award: Yeah, Izzy, I don't believe it, either!
Be Careful What You Ask For award: Sally tried to compliment Norris so he took it and made out that he believed it and wittered on so much that she glazed over and excused herself. He was quite pleased at the result, "She won't be bothering me again!"
Creep Factor award: Phelan's presence on the Street is doing Anna's head in. I can't blame her.
Lines of the week:
Sally to Tim "My ex husband and the adopted mother of your child getting jiggy and you think it's none of your business?" (It isn't!)
Gail "It's my annex!" David "it's our house!" (well, he does have a point)
Sally "They're not going to listen, councillors are always the same." Audrey "Scuse me, Sally, I was a councilor" Sally "Yeah but you weren't very good at it. You were only in it for the perks"
Rita "What's an app?" Tim "If you don't know your apps from your elbow, you're gonna be in trouble" Rita "And what's a widget?" Tim "You can get cream for them so I wouldn't worry about that too much"
Rita quoting Norris about the tablet "If I got one of these, it would be like giving a mobile phone to a cocker spaniel"
Sally about Tracy "They could do an hour long Crimewatch special on what she's got up to in the past"
Tracy about Carla "She's indestructable. She's Teflon Tottie, it's part of her allure" (it certainly seems to be)
Tim to Ken "I had you down as a Tory. Must have been the sweaters"
Rita about an old friend "I didn't know she was still alive" Norris "Going by that photo, the jury's still out"
Norris about Sally's prospects in politics "Thick skinned and able to bounce back no matter how stupid they've made themselves look." (He may have a point) Rita "In that case, it's a wonder you're not Prime Minister!"
