Corrie Weekly awards, Aug. 10 - 14

Panto award: A Classic case of the wrong end of the stick. "Luke doesn't suspect a thing" with Luke's sister? Oh, She's behind you!

Contrived Cliche award: See above, and also see Lloyd answering Andrea's phone so that he could find out about what she'd done. My most hated of all the hated cliches.

Guilt Money: Tracy offered to pay 200 quid for a box full of second hand books and dvds that belonged to Maddie.

Skivvy award: Tracy's making Amy do housework! But to be fair, she's the right age to be taught how to do it. It's only too bad Tracy refused to learn herself!

Phrase of Doom award: Tracy "This isn't just a fling. I reckon we can really make this work this time" and "This time, it's forever"

Gurn-o-matic award: Steve's gurns are infamous but even more so when he's trying to cover up something, in this case, that Rover has indeed returned.

Taking Liberties award: Ever since Tracy and Robert got together, she's in and out of that tiny restaurant kitchen causing interruptions yet neither Nick nor Leanne ever seems to catch her at it.

Dab hand award: Maria told Steph, sarcastically, that she had no idea how to keep a man. Well, actually, Maria's not very good at it, is she? Last person to give someone advice on keeping a fella. 

Slippery Slope award: Simon's sliding, not just the alcohol incident, but he's violent, he's manipulating Leanne and he's not getting the help he desperately needs.

Lines of the week:
Amy "More like 'treat your daughter like a servant' month!"
Tracy "You can tell Robert to stick his specials where a monkey sticks its nuts" (that would be no to the free lunch, then?)
Steve "what's more important? A load of old vinyl or your girlfriend?" Lloyd "Don't be stupid. Those records are me life! Joking!" (ah, but are you?)
Tracy to Robert "So, you're good in bread, and all?"
Rita about Norris "Forgot his name. Complete memory blank. Like I never met him. Mind you, that could be wishful thinking"
Sally to Anna "Kirk's a man of few words and you, you talk a lot" (a LOT)
Luke "I'm a man. With mouse like tendencies" (and that's why I like Luke!)
Andrea "You got a WiFi password?" Steve "Yeah. Traitor123"
Amy "You know when you said mom was being nice because she wanted something? Was it 'weird nice' like she's doing now?"
Tracy "We were made for each other. This time it's forever" (virtually assuring it'll blow up in her face)

To add to lines of the week:

Amy at the bar in the Bistro: They've sent me over for a jug of tap water but it's really to get me out of the way.

Correction: "I've been told to ask for a jug of tap water, but it's just to get rid of me"

I liked Steph when she was introduced but after she kept quiet about Tina's and Peter's affair and was an accessory after the fact to Andy's indentity theft ,she's quick to make false accusationS against Maria?!A bit hyporcritical methinks.
I was glad the truth came out quickly though.

What a joy to have 'Rover return.' Sorry folks, I just couldn't resist.
