Corrie Weekly Awards for July 21 - 25

Specsavers: Were those a pair of Deirdre's old specs?

Educational Fail: Eva thought the Plantagenets was a band.

Said the librarian to Mrs. Bishop award: Yasmeen certainly underestimated our Emily!

She's Baaaaack! Emily has the stomach for a fight. She's been fighting her whole life! Go, Emily, Go!!!

Action Man award: Petitions just aren't cutting it. Roy is going to take action and save the library!

Mind Your Own Business award: Norris, get out of Rita's affairs.

Rock Bottom award: The Windasses.

We're Not Gonna Take it award: Leanne is fighting back against Nick's vindictiveness.

Continuity fail? Anna and Owen left the house together, yet she came down the road putting her coat on and he was sat on the bench. What did he do, zoom out ahead of her just to sit down 20 feet away? She thought he'd done a runner? What?

Slap Line forms to the Left: Doesn't Norris have a face that just invites being slapped? (In real life, slapping is not on. And to be fair, slapping Norris would only give him more reason to be self righteous)

Lines of the week:
Tracy (about nail varnish) "I can't decide between bone china and movie idol" Deidre "I reckon both, then you could call it Bone idol" (Ha!)
Deirdre about Uncle Albert "He saved the lives of two men" Tracy "Really? That means the family breaks even in my books!"
Eileen "I never trusted her" Lloyd "The phrase you're looking for is I Told You So"
Deidre about Ken "Your father's never lived it up in his life"
Tracy "Nana Blanche listened in to more private conversations than MI6"
Emily about Ramadan "Is it just food and drink you have to give up?" Yasmeen "Also sexual relations. But quite frankly, I'd rather have the bread pudding" (her mid morning snack)
Audrey re government cuts "They'd cut your feet off if you stood still too long"
Nick "Fair's got nothing to do with this"
Kal about Leanne's declaration of love "It's not quite how I imagined it" (nothing in this relationship is!)
Steve to Neil "You're like a flippin' boomerang"
Steve "It's like having the choice between a Chinese burn and a poke in the eye!"

Angry Flirting Award: Lloyd and Andrea in the cab office. Strongly suspect these two will get back together. If they do, I hope they keep some of the feisty spark they finally showed in this scene instead of going back to simpering at each other. Lloyd is so much sexier when he shows some backbone unlike spineless Steve who is apparently incapable of standing up to anybody.

'we're not gonna take it'? Were you a twisted sister fan in your youth Tvor? -John (I know I was ;))

Tvor said...

Why yes, John! Ah the days of 80s hair metal!

When I read that line, I thought of Peter Finch in "Network". That was in the 70's. What a strange chronology!

Frosty the Snowman said...

Ridiculous rage award: Anna almost mounting the fence to have a go at Sally and Tim when they were only trying to help. Tim has the right to be concerned about his daughter. I dislike the Windbags and have zero sympathy with them. For all her goody goody martyr behaviour Anna is no better than a guttersnipe.

Law Breaking Bailiffs award: The law says no Bailiff can enter a house with just a child present and take goods.

Help yourself award: Isn’t Rita an EMPLOYEE at the Kabin? She has absolutely no right to help herself to money out the till without asking just to go drinking in the Rovers. She needs sacking. Fed up with her constant sanctimony.

SHUT UP award: Thank the Lord Eva told the dreadful Andrea to stop banging on, her constant turning up and going on and on is making me want to reach for the OFF switch. I really hope she has taken the hint at last and gone and doesn’t turn up again and get a job in the factory or gym or kebab shop.

Get over it award: All this moping around by Poor Old Me Lloyd like he had been married to the woman for 20 years instead of knowing her 5 minutes, is becoming rather tiresome now.

Sourpuss award: Leanne is just awful these days, always cross faced and shouting about something while Kal stands around like a prize plum. Cant blame Yasmeen for being concerned about her son, Frosty wouldn’t like his son getting entangled with the perma frowning fire starter either.

It's Too Late Baby Award - the Windass-Armstrongs. Led by Anna, they acted a blinder on Friday but after years of screeching, scheming and general unpleasantness, I just don't care. Glad, though, that Owen finally got to put his bullying skills to good use with Norris.

Flip Flop Writing Trophy for Ramadan with the Nazirs. Two weeks ago it was Not Even Water. On Wednesday, there were breakfast sandwiches to go, er, take away egg barms. On Friday, coffee at the gym. Eid is on Monday the 28th. ???

I wondered if those were Deirdre's old glasses too, Tvor.

I notice there's been a lot of attention to Norris's habitual busybody status lately. It seems anyone who comes in contact with him mentions it and puts him in his place. Steph did it at Tracy & Rob's shop and several others at the Kabin and in the street. About time!
