Corrie Weekly Awards for Nov. 17 - 21

Accessory of the week: Every bar needs an animal skull!

Musical ambiance: "Stand By Your Man" in the pub when the hoedown client was chatting up Liz.

Retcon award: Carla said the basis for her business is polyester. I guess after Rob stole that silk from her she gave it up as a lost cause.

Foot in mouth award: Kal reminds Carla that she knows what it was like to be young.

Blue Monday award (and Wednesday and Friday) Everyone seemed to be sad and down this week, not just Steve. Sally, Faye, Kylie, Michelle, Michael, Steve.

Fashion wow: Julie again, with that animal print coat and also with the pink and black dress.

Fashion Fail: Mary had an allergic reaction to the eyelash glue!

Delivery fail: I honestly don't care about that bloody parcel. I don't know why Norris didn't get it delivered to the Kabin and I'm losing the will to live and the only thing that saved it was that wonderfully obnoxious depot clerk! Awesome!

What was your first clue? Michelle told Carla she didn't see this (breakup) coming? It's been in her mind for weeks thinking Steve was going off her.

Lines of the week:
Gail "I've never been to busy to have an opinion" (Line of the week!!!! and it's Gail in a nutshell!)
Sally "I'm too old to be a trainee anything" (What? No ambitions, Sal?)
Gail "I might risk a parsnip soup" (that menu sounded far above my station and all!)
Craig to Faye "It's weird isn't it? My outsides don't match my insides either" (Aww Bless!)
Steve to Steph "You should be out there, being irresponsible. Daft"
Michelle about the sports car "Looks like something that's fell out of a CornFlake packet!"
Lloyd about the sports car "How fast does it go?" Steve "90" Lloyd "She'll still catch you. I mean it, you're dead meat!"
Michelle "My life's turned downhill since he turned 40"
Liz "Steve, you have messed up every relationship you've ever had." Steve "And so have you!" (Touche!)
Michelle "Me and Steve row like other couples chat about what they're having for tea"

Frosty the Snowman said...

Total wet blanket award: I am tired of Michel Rodwell and his constant hangdog expression – whinging poor old me me me and my problems all the flaming time. He had the beginnings of a good character but he is now annoying and frankly pathetic with Gail fawning aound him a half wit.. How did he and his son immediately recognise each other when he hasn’t seen him since a baby?

Tardis award: The flat the Windbags moved into looked twice the size and nothing like the one that Peter lived in with Leanne and latterly Carla. So tired of this family now. When Owen leaves they all need to go with him. Anna just becomes more annoying with her sing song voice.

Bravo award: Who didn’t cheer when Steve at long long last dumped the arm folding shouty bully Michelle? And didn’t she feel sorry for herself – boo hoo – unfortunately they get back together again - shame.

Larry Oliver (not) award: All this silly nonsense with Kylie and the terribly wooden Callum? Who really cares that she thinks her life is so awful. Now I understand this skank drug dealer is to be become a permanent character? I think the powers that be have been on the magic mushrooms themselves.

Good on yer girl award: I think Julie’s new boyfriend should be the lawyer associate of Dev’s instead of the Devster himself which of course is where this is all going. A better prospect than this buffoonish aging lothario. He and Mary are well suited. Both oddballs.

The bookies flat struck me as being different from when Peter lived there. Although there was a staircase behind Anna at the end of the scene with Gary, he seemed to leave the flat through a front door on the left. Peter's front door was at the top of the staircase and he had to go down the stairs to get into the living area.

I still think Michael should have been paired with Eileen. There could have been great stand-offs between Eileen and Gail. Way too much of the Platts as we now have Sarah coming back.

Agree Frosty.....Michael has become very tiresome quite fast with that 'little boy lost' attitude and irritating hangdog look. Frankly, Gail and Michael act as if they have diminished IQ 's, who should be in some sort of care.
