Corrie Weekly Awards Aug. 18 - 22

Family Matters award: David and Kylie and the kids, lovely little family.

Fish on a bicycle award: Deirdre, dressed in a skirt, top, chain belt and boots, looked very out of place in the country

Red Rag to a Bull called Derek: Deirdre wearing red in a field of cows, and maybe a bull. Too funny watching the friendly cows approaching and the pair of them in a panic.

Chinese Water Torture award: Neil must figure if he blindly continues to stalk Andrea, she'll give in eventually.

Bridezilla award: Why did Michelle think she would have the patience to deal with Tracy planning the wedding?

Foreign Object award: A sewing kit for Kylie. Even Audrey was unimpressed. Tyrone thinks Carla's having a fitted kitchen. Carla? Kitchen? Um, don't think so.

Brat award: Amy is becoming very Tracy-like.

Furtive Award: Steve and Lloyd scheming over Neil.

It's all about me award: Gail reckons David keeping Nick's secret was to embarass her. It had nothing to do with her. Sally reckoned Carla will take her anger at Maddie out on her as PA. It's nothing to do with her, either.

Lines of the week:
Deirdre "We're on holiday. Sort of."
Steve "You're taking advice on major historic moments of our time from a bloke that listens to Planet Rock?"
Deirdre: "You spend half your life complaining about where you came from and the other going all half misty-eyed about it."
Tracy "We were looking forward to another night of debauchery"
Liz to Steve and Lloyd and Sean "OY! How many people does it take to sweep up a bag of crisps?!!" Steve "Is that a joke?" (I love it when Liz gets all gobby!)
Nick to Leanne "People manipulate people to get what they want" Leanne "Like you, you mean?"
Audrey "What a waste of good gin!"
Tracy to Amy "Thank God I brought you up properly!" (in whose world?)
Deirdre about Tyrone "He's not been right since her with the hair was smacking him about with a hoover nozzle"
David "It's Kylie's birthday, not National Dote On Nick Day"
Nick "Why should she be happy when I can't be?"
Steve "We're not in cahoots, Sean, we're in a booth"
Leanne "If you've got something to say, say it to me face, not me back" Gail "You've got that many these days, it's hard to choose"
Deirdre "She was my mother's dog, you know. She brought her a lot of pleasure. I didn't, but Eccles did"
Sally "It's a tragedy! It's a country and western song come to life!" (overreact much?)
Neil to Steve and Lloyd "If you wanted to send in the clowns, I don't know why the pair of you didn't just turn up"

Waste of money award. Why did Sally send Sophie to the chipper for chips when they had pizza that would need to be cooked in the oven? Ever heard of oven chips Sal? Who eats chips with pizza anyway? Not very healthy.

Inappropriate wardrobe award: Eva always dressed to the nines like she is going to a nightclub complete with chest on display is just not how Northern working women would normally dress. In fact the way they all dress is becoming rather ludicrous. What happened to the hair-net and double breasted coat days?

Loyal boyfriend (not) award: Leanne has known Nick for years since they were teenagers and certainly knows when he is pulling a fast one. But her triangle headed boyfriend didn’t believe her, and questioned her judgement and basically sided with Nick. Hm doesn’t bode well for the pair of them does it? I think this pair have absolutely zero chemistry.

Criminal damage award: Why did everyone stand around gawping while Leanne smashed up the Bistro in front of small children? Why does nobody ever call the cops?

Police Inceptor award: Mad Maddah driving like Lewis Hamilton having stolen Carla’s car – how did she get into it so quickly – does dopy Tyrone leave them standing with keys in the ignition? Everyone seems to find this hilarious and one even commented that Maddah is being made nice – eh? If you had ever been hit by an uninsured unlicensed driver you wouldn’t find it so funny folks!

Getting boring now award: Peter staggering around the jail and pleading Jim for booze is now getting a bit wearing.

Prison on speed dial award: Steve immediately knew it was the prison when he received the call on his mobile when Peter was ringing from a call box inside.

Deirdre about Tyrone "He's not been right since her with the hair was smacking him about with a hoover nozzle"

That's just nasty mocking someone for being on the receiving end of domestic violence is just out of order in my view

Plotline fail..Nick - no emotion says yep she's right (Leanne about his faking his seizures) and there's the end of it. What a lot of wasted time and annoyance watching him grabbing his head incessantly over the past few weeks.
Any other facial gestures from Sophie other than the odd raised one eyebrow or the continual smirk? Can someone please explain why this character is still on the show? And they centre storylines around her usually giving her another girlfriend so they can break up when they realize what a loser Sophie is.

Well, it seems to me Eva wears everything double breasted. ;)
My fella from Salford eats chips with just about anything including pizza, lasagna, you name it. And Steve probably has call display on his phone. It doesn't necessarily mean the number was in his phone directory.

Peter going through alcohol withdrawal would have been noticed by someone and he would have received medical attention. People have died going through withdrawals - he should be in the hospital but then we would have to listen to Jim M getting being all king-pin like in the clink. Sad.

Do UK prisoners get phone credit/tokens? In Canada prisoners can only call collect.

Tvor said...

I seem to recall that Steve had to accept Peter's call so it's probably the same.
