Corrie Canada weekly awards for Feb. 8 - 12
The Country of Love award: Brendan. Oh my eyes! And ears! That is one slimy, smarmy goat!
Phrase of Doom award: Anna reckons Phelan will be gone soon enough but Jason and Phelan appear to be building a partnership. Uh oh.
Misplaced Guilt: Steph felt awful about what happened but she has nothing to apologize for and Carla made sure she knew it. Jamie is responsible for his own actions.
Jackpot award: Anna, apparently, with two jobs, tiny flat, pregnant teenager, disabled family member. The more she protested, the more material she gave Sally for her notes! Ha!
Transportation/Continuity fail: Does Rita not have a car anymore? She went to fetch Jenny and they came back by cab. Why does Amy still need to be picked up after school at her age?
Dirty Dog award: Brendan was still planning to keep in touch with Mary even after he treated her with no respect, his wife was dragging him home by the ear and Dev was shouting the odds at him in the street.
Unpleasant award: Aidan. He's always shouting and rude. Then he tosses Eva into the van like a sack of potatoes.
Lines of the Week:
Norris "I'm not prepared to sit here and be lectured on morality by a shameless philanderer"
Gail "Subtle! Oh that's my watchword, my motto, my middle name"
Carla "I'm not strong, it's just smoke and mirrors"
Jenny "I know I've got a lot to be grateful for but you can't blame me for wishing I had anyone else's life but mine" (wasn't Sally Ann Matthews good this week?)
Audrey "Sometimes life isn't very nice" Gail "You don't have to tell me that, I was married to a serial killer"
Mary about her prudish mother "There was a time when she wouldn’t even be seen eating a banana in public"
Norris "I sometimes think I'm the last sane person on this street" (You're sane, all right, just not very nice)
Sally "I'm just spitballing a few blue sky ideas here" (well, she's got the lingo down. Kind of)
Johnny "Caz is used to hostile environments. She'll be fine."
Kevin "I thought you was meant to be a Christian" Sophie "That does not make me a complete idiot" (no, but a little Christian charity wouldn't go amiss, either)
Norris to Jenny "Have you flogging sweets to children? That'd be like something out of Hansel and Gretel"
Rita "If everyone that Norris insulted dropped dead, I'd be up to my knees in corpses in that Kabin"
Dev "It's just concern" Mary "That's how Norris dresses it up. But the minute he gets the scent of scandal in his snout, he's like a pig rooting around for truffles"
