Coronation Street weekly awards, August 16 - 20

Fashion award: Sian's ice cream shirt.

Just suck it up award: Whinging star: Peter. Isn't paying out a big win now and then all part of the business of being a bookie anyway?

Kicking a puppy award: Sad Star: Who's more downcast? Natasha or Audrey?

Oscar Wilde award: Cobbly star: Nick looking at the stars from the gutter.

Keys to the kingdom award: Iron star: Bill sold the yard to Owen and gave Jason his tools. The Coronation Street builder tradition moves on. Surely Bill is pensionable age by now? He can't be far off.

Reopening old wounds award: Gold Star: I truly don't think Leanne has feelings for Nick any more but he sure opened that old scab from the past, didn't he?

New hair-do award: Janice has curls, that's a new look for her!

You've been told award: Gold Star: New doctor laid down the law to Gail for telling Nick that Natasha was in with the Doctor.

Lines of the Week:
Ciaran to Sean: "I thought you were.. ummm," Sean: "Oh I am, but we all have our off days!"
Audrey: "He said I was his Helen of Troy. Turns out I was just his "stalking" horse."
Sophie: "When my mum's on one, she makes Gail Platt look like Courtney Flamin' Love!" (Ain't that the truth!)
Peter: "Apparently gullibility's not a crime, neither is lust." Deirdre: "Did you get that line off yer dad or did you make it up?"
David: "It's like the Thriller video in here!" (*snort*)
Audrey to Peter: "You should listen to your father, poor sap that he is..."
Natasha: "I'm not mad, just desperate." (Indeed.)
Ken: "Is this our future, Deirdre? TV dinner with a side order of resentment? A diet like that could kill us."
Fiz: "And nothing is going to go wrong for us again." (aggghhh!)

Yep, I think Nick really had that thump from Peter coming. Did you catch that nod to Hilda Ogden? Kevin told his father: "The world's yer lobster!" That was classic Hilda.

Then Roy could hardly contain himself with joy for Fiz... he even shook her hand and patted her shoulder and even SAID how happy he was.

Nick is over the moon about the baby but he still hasn't actually told Natasha he loves her. And the infamous Renshaw twins... finally captured on camera.

Yes, so glad someone else picked up on the Hilda-ism. I was going to mention that in a recent post on the importance of Corrie's past adding richness to the texture of the show. And of all the current characters, it's Kevin who would best remember her saying it. Nice one!

Another great line was Peter saying Audrey was approaching "with THAT face" LOL. No one does the bulldog chewing a wasp look like Audrey and Gail.

I might be the only one, but I didn't see the smile on Sian's top and saw it as a rude t-shirt! D:

I too noticed only the a-hem, 'rude' image on Sian's Summer 'T', although I thought it a clever design :)
Yes, I too did a double take when I heard Kevin's "Hilda-ism" remark!
How appropriate of the writers to make this effort in this, Corrie's Golden Anniversary.
If you saw the interview of Vicky Entwistle ( below) which I enjoyed, I wonder how her curly crop grew so fast from the episode still to what it was for the interview?
If it's 'real' that is!

Sea Penguin said...

The Renshaw twins are fab - wonder if fat Brenda will ever pop into Audrey's ;)) Loving Ken & Deirdre's marriage angst as well. The Natasha storyline is also turning out better than I'd imagined.

Tvor said...

Janice's hair in this pic is pinned up in the back so it looks shorter than in that interview.

Anonymous said...

Oh thanks Tvor; it's not exactly long to begin with so I never thought of that!

LOL@ issac newton! Bulldog chewing a wasp!

Tvor said...

IMO Cilla was the best one for the "bulldog chewing a wasp" look when she was angry or thwarted!

Frankie said...
