Corrie Weekly Awards for April 6 - 10

Out of the mouths of babes: Faye scolding Owen after he attacked Craig. She told Owen Craig was nicer to her than he ever was.

Shoot yourself in the foot award: Owen just couldn't keep his gob shut around Beth. It landed him in the nick for assault.

Time Warp award: Eileen and Adrian finished their date and it was still broad daylight yet they talked about a nightcap and not having coffee at "this time of night". Even if they were north of the Arctic Circle it's still too early in the year for the midnight sun!
 Also, Carla had finally finished her meal with Nick and said good night, off to bed. Owen was packing to leave. Faye was still out in the cafe with Gary and Alya. The cafe shouldn't have been open that late, should it?

Musical Ambiance: Smooth Operator when Jason and Gary were talking about Callum in the pub.

Gobsmacked award: Jackson's parents on finding out about the baby.

Martyr Award: Anna seems to be taking on baby care all on her own in spite of having Owen and Gary around to help willingly. And they've got experience, so why not let them?

Richard III Award: Tracy is making sure this really is Tony's Winter of Discontent (or Spring, I suppose)

Lines of the week:
Tracy "Poor Old Liz. You don't stand a chance, luv"
David "When I were 13 all I were really interested in were Transformers"
Kirk "I don't think you can get 'Sorry you've had a baby' balloons"
Mary "I'd be a good midwife. Nerves of steel" Sean "I prefer the mysteries of a woman to remain mysterious" Mary "Bring on the gas and air. One blast for the mother and one for me!" (what happened to those nerves of steel?)
Sean to Eileen "What have I told you about using a magnifying mirror? They are the devil's work!" (they are, you know!)
Tracy re the brawl outside "Do you have to buy tickets for his or can anybody watch?"
Kirk "I always think bits of your brain come out when you have a nosebleed. I had loads when I was a kid" (Ohhhh so that's what happened!)
Adrian to Eileen "You give good brush off, I'll give you that"
Steve "I was thinking we could have a depression themed wedding. Play Joy Division instead of the Wedding March." (Ha!)
Audrey to Bethany "'Audrey' is one thing, 'Aud' quite another!"
Owen "I still love you" Anna "I'm not sure I still love you"
Owen "I'm the same person I've always been" (and therein lies the problem)

The time warp award is something that has always bugged me watching the show. People are forever leaving the Rovers or Bistro after a night out while it's still light out. Couldn't figure out if they all finish work really early or if they are all lightweights ;)

I always wonder that too.

I would like to give two awards to Sarah and Bethany,'Why are you here?and the 'what's the point?award as I don't think their returns are working.It's the same old self centered Sarah and mouthy wild child Bethany.To think the Street is losing a genuine character like Julie in favor of these two?!

Not so smart business moves, Gold Medal: Carla, for fanning the flames between Alya and Sally by inviting the trainee to dinner and telling the PA to file and make coffee. Sorry, Carla, but Sally stood by you in the past, worked hard for a very long time, has put forth solid business ideas, and earned that promotion; Alya flounced in right out of school with a design portfolio, computer skills and no work experience. If Carla's so clever, she should recognize the issue, take both of them to an offsite lunch meeting, and clearly define what are their roles and limitations for her small company.

Not so smart business moves, Silver Medal: Alya for canceling last minute, for boyfriend related reasons, and doing it via text. Sorry, darlin', but Carla is your boss, not your school mate and this meeting wasn't just coffee and a catch up.

Inability to see the forest for the trees: Anna for not noticing that Faye has no interest in being a mom, that she has a family willing to do what is needed, and that even tho' Owen's imperfect, she's not exactly a bucket of sunshine herself. Faye's immature plans to self deliver and dump off the baby at the hospital were more developed than anything Anna has in mind. Nope, Anna can only see herself as a martyr. Oh poor me, can't pay the electric this month. Too bad you quit your jobs and dumped your working earning partner, lady.
