Coronation Street weekly awards, December 24 - 28
Ulterior motive award: Don't say you did it for Nick, Eva, you did it for yourself and revenge on Leanne.
It's not my fault award: Leanne tore three strips off Peter, blaming him for everything. Well yes it was his fault for running after her the minute Carla left him but Leanne shouldn't have been with Nick anyway.
Ms. Obvious Award: Sophie can protest all she likes. She's clearly got a thing for Jenna.
Compromise Fail award: Why is it always the women that have to give in and make the first move in a stalemate?
Performance of the week: Jane Danson. Drunk, scared, defiant, angry, emotions of Leanne all over the place. Riveting.
Colly wobbles award: Leanne got the shock of her life when she went to Peter and found Carla back.
Guilt Trip award: Kylie's feeling guilty. So she should, too. But Gail complimenting her only made her feel worse. So she nearly guilt tripped all the way to St. Lucia.
Who's the Daddy storyline cliche: Oh come on. She shags Nick and then (probably) has makeup sex with her husband and you don't think Kylie's going to get pregnant? Spoilers aside, it's inevitable. It's soap law!
Hotel Fail award: Seriously? Would a real hotel desk clerk take visitors up to the honeymoon suite the morning after the wedding (she wouldn't necessarily know it was off) and *then* ask the occupant if it's ok?
Lines of the week:
Mike Baldwin channeling award: Compared to hard case Rob, Mike Baldwin was a pussy cat! Merry flamin' Christmas, Robbo! At least he got taken down a peg or two now Carla's back for good.
Roy "I've got a new recording of Chopin's Nocturnes to enjoy and a weighty Trollop to deal with" (Oh?)
Gail to Kylie "It's not giving in. It's growing up" (so why is it always the women that have to "grow up", not the men?)
Deirdre "We've got to watch the turkey and stuff It's A Wonderful Life"
Leanne to Peter "I think I preferred you more when you reeked of whiskey, cigarettes and sick" and "It's Christmas...talk turkey"
Audrey to Eva "If you lived in Liverpool, you'd have had these (rollers) in since Saturday, Done your weekly shop, and gone clubbing!"
Leanne to Peter. "Is that how it works? First come first served?"
Christmas toast from Craig "To the Zoo!"
Stella to Eva "So you punished her for telling me a few home truths, over bagging a man you couldn't keep!"
Peter "For once, that's not my fault" (oh yes it is! kind of)
Marcus "Did you think it was a phase, my queer years!"
Marcus "Sean you're better than this" Sean "I'm SO not"
Kylie "You don't get rid of me that easy" (apparently he does)
