Corrie Canada Weekly Awards for Jan. 25 - 29
Patronizing award: Queen Sally, of course! To Anna about getting a date "at her age"
Nice Guys Finish Last award: Nick. But if he continues to go for high maintenance women, it's bound to happen. And uttering too many Phrases of Doom by the canal are just adding the icing onto the inevitable, just to mix up the metaphor. The words "time", "ticking" and "bomb" come to mind.
Irresponsibility Street: Tyrone really did do the wrong thing overspending all for the sake of one day.
Mixed emotions: Robert might have been annoyed at the name of the florist but he didn't go off the deep end and even seemed to be a bit flattered when he turned and walked away.
Friendship award: Kevin has a good friend in Tim and Tyrone has a good friend in Kevin.
Tipping your hand award: Why on earth would Robert tell Tracy, his EX, of all people that he wants to buy into Nick's? Because he's still hung up on her, that's why, but is still keeping her at arm's length. Leading to...
Battle of the Egos: Ultimately, any restaurant's success is down to how good the food is. Robert wins with a job offer from another place, use me or lose me, mate! Nick has a new partner by the end of the week. Leading to...
Played a blinder award: Except the restaurant competitor was a set up by Tracy and by heck, it worked! I didn't see that coming. I should have, but I didn't.
Cat's out of the bag award: Sally caught Anna and Kevin snogging. Tracy overheard Carla and Robert talk about their one night stand.
Poltergeist award: He's Baaaa-aack!
Lines of the week Sally to Anna "If you found someone, you hold on to him" (I bet you won't be saying that when you find out who it is!)
Tracy to Carla "You could save yourself a few bob by wearing your last wedding dress. It's still in fashion!"
Billy "I didn't lie, I merely misdirected you towards the cream horn!"
Tracy "I don't care about people!" Ken "I always wondered why you went into retail"
Fiz "It's space that got us in this mess, the space between Ty's earholes"
Sally "Admin? She works for a cafe, not Microsoft"
Leanne "Good night, boss" Nick "There's only one boss around here" Leanne "Yeah, and you're looking at her"
Sally about Anna "She had a fella round there and it wasn't Kevin Spacey" (Half right)
Gail "We like a dystopian future, don't we, mam?"
