- Michelle to Maria about the video "You need to get that out of your mind" (Yes, but how could you ever?)
- Minnie "Dipstick? That's what me dad calls me" (not surprised)
- Pat about Tony "If he thought that anything was going on between Liam and Carla he wouldn't have gone up the aisle unless he'd killed him first." (uh oh. Conspiracy theories anyone?)
- Teresa to Gail "And if i were you, i'd go for a face, head and body transplant"
- Kevin to Tyrone "Molly's puttin two and two together and getting 500"
- Darryl to David about the Windasses "So they're not your favourite people at the moment"
- Janice about Emily "When she goes through them elevator doors, the mist comes down!"
- Maria about Carla "The woman that stood at my wedding wearing black feathers in her hair like a flamin vulture!"
- Jed to Norris "Emily threw me a lifeline as i imagine she threw you one too, not so long ago" (truth hurts, doesn't it Norris?)
Rosie? Get the flamin phone yourself! Poor Maria, though, her worst nightmare comes true. She always knew there was attraction between Carla and Liam and she always feared she'd lose him to her and now it's all true. Yes, all she has is a kiss on a screen, but she's 100% sure it was more and of course, it was. It doesn't matter however much Tom or Michelle reassure her, she grabs any little thing and runs with it and she's determined to find out. She eventually came to Leanne but it's a good thing she's a Battersby and a consummate liar.
So. Maria knows about the affair. She knows that Tony knew before he married Carla. She knows that Tony and his brother didn't fall out with each other, making his choice of Liam as best man now suspect. And Liam died on Tony's stag night. How many two-plus-twos does she need to come up with four? Thing is Liam did love Maria. He just ended up loving Carla more. It does all make sense to her, the hours he'd be gone, the love/hate thing and the realization that the car seemed to aim straight for Liam. Michelle and everyone else thinks she's got the wrong end of the stick, crazed by grief and having a nervous breakdown. We know she's right but can she prove it?
Jerry is renting out the house?? That's pretty low, renting it out from under Darryl. Leave it to Teresa who wanted to hang on to her safe little home so badly that she chained herself to the kitchen cupboards and look who the new neighbours are! The Windass clan! I wonder if they knew the Platts and Joe were going to be their neighbours. And doesn't Jerry or the letting agent do any reference checking? I suppose that would have been all a scam too, though. And the latest ratty and low class chavvy family arrives on the Street in a clapped out vehicle containing all their worldly goods, with a backfire as they come around the corner. Now where have we seen that before? /sarcasm. The writers have No imagination. That mother of the clan doesn't seem too bad but i don't know yet. She seems to be on the sensible side, trying to keep the peace but Gail is always such a sucker isn't she? Dev played right into Amber's plan to get Darryl living under her roof and i guess Teresa is ogone for parts unknown.
So these Windasses. Yes. or rather. No thanks. Anna seems somewhat ok but that Eddie is about as shiftless as they ever get. Gary is a brute and the Uncle is a bad'un and do we really need this? I think not. And trust me, they don't get much better, as of current UK timelines though Anna isn't so bad.
Hmmm. Tyrone squirted himself with perfume, the same stuff he sold to Minnie and since Molly doesn't know anything about it, she now thinks he's having an affair with Minnie! But Kevin knows what Tyrone is up to now. He won't tattle though. Men don't tell on each other (and neither do girls). Tyrone is pretty much shooting himself in the foot, and Molly called his bluff by coming to see the club with him. Now he's going to have to go and she's getting more and more suspicious by the hour. His dealings with Minnie Mouse are going to land him in the doo-doo. Why oh Why, on soaps, does EVERYONE lie or keep secrets when they don't need to, not really!
Steve thinks it's kinder if Michelle does the breaking up. Might be kinder to him but it won't really make any difference to her and you know STeve never does things that work out. She'll end up finding out that he's been seeing Steve and manipulating her and she'll flamin' kill him and Liz will help!
And isn't doing tea in a hospital a bit of an odd Community Service job? not exactly hard work. But look! It's Janice! But if she thinks Emily is going to give her an easy go of it because she's a neighbour, she's got another think coming. And Janice found out the hard way from the sounds of it. Jed seems to be the bane of Norris' life and he doesn't seem to have changed much from the cheeky fellow from the 60s out for a dodgey deal, even if it's just cheating at Snakes and Ladders.
