Corrie Weekly awards, Dec. 5 - 9

Continuity fail: Ken was surprised at how grim Daniel's flat was. He didn't seem at all familiar with it. Daniel's growth markings on the wall seemed to indicate he lived there from a fairly young age. Ken stayed with Denise and Daniel when Daniel was about 10 or 12. Why didn't he remember the flat if that's the case? And another one. We saw that Maria had broken a heel before she went into the pub but when she came out and walked home, there was not a limp in sight.

Truth is Stranger Than Fiction award: Accused of murdering her Lesbian stalker. Married a gay Argentinian hairdresser. Yep, I can see why Adam thought Tracy was winding him up!

Throwback Thursday awards: 1. Peter found all of Tracy's old cassette tapes, the ones she used to run upstairs and listen to and disappear for weeks!
2. Peter noted that he and Leanne got married 6 years ago (which would have been the 50th anniversary live episode, this Thursday episode airing on the 56th anniversary of Coronation Street's first episode)
3. Not only does Cathy have a dictaphone, she has eight!

BridesmaidZilla award: Nessa.

Green Eyed Monster award: Aidan who didn't want Maria spending time with Adam but doesn't want her himself other than as a bit on the side.

Bending Time and Space award: The acoustics in the pub are very strange. You can overhear something clearly from the other side of the room yet not hear a thing standing less than 5 feet from someone else.

Shoot Yourself in the Foot award: Cathy told Roy they ought to call off the wedding. She shouldn't have been surprised when he went along with what he thought she wanted. He's not that good at subtleties. She only wanted to be reassured.

Vanity, Thy Name is Ken: He won't wear a hat because it would ruin his hair for the rest of the day. I totally agree with him. I hate wearing them, too!

Pants on Fire award: Aidan told his father he doesn't fancy Maria. He does, but it doesn't stop him still lusting after Eva, especially when she's wearing very little and what there is of it is silky and tight.

Lines of the week:
Nessa "You know me, I love a big entrance"
Maria to Eva "You make me sound like a Disney princess"
Mary "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst" Tracy "Get a better motto!"
Tracy about Maria "She was always a bunny boiler deep down"
Maria "When are you going to tell Eva?" Aidan "Tell Eva what?" (Love Rat!!!!!)
Maria "I don't hate you, Kate. These days I save the hate for meself"
Tracy "Why is it everytime I see Maria chatting to a bloke I hear the theme tune to Jaws playing in my head?"
Norris "I know I have a reputation for being a bit, you know, inquisitive (ya think?) but Mary's my friend" (and in between hissy fits and opinionated rants, he *can* be a good friend)
Nessa "It wouldn't be the first time a man felt the urge to visit me in the middle of the night" (oh please)
Nessa "They're all the same. Liars and Cheaters" Alex, joking "Lions and Cheetahs?" (nice one!)
Nessa about Roy "Don't be fooled by that face. Beneath that innocent exterior lies the beating heart of a love rat" (Not Roy, not ever!)
Aidan to Eva "What are you doing?" (dressed in very little) Eva "Well, I'm hardly waiting for the Number 8 bus, am I?"
Billy "Imagine a world without faith" Daniel "Then all we'd have to do is eradicate climate change"
Peter to Nick "How do you spell Rebound again?" ("L E A N N E")

What, there isn't a cobbler in the back room of the Rover's fixing shoes while the patrons sip their drinks?? LOL

Tracy has had some great lines lately, my favorite still being about her rooting for the iceberg in Titanic. I hope they keep this side of her, loving it.

Thank-you Tvor!
Am I the only one who thinks that since Daniel's flat is so easy to get to now and it seems Ken always knew where it is, he is a completely horrible parent. I've known people who visited pets they had to give away and Ken, who has plenty of free time, couldn't just drop by a few times a year?
