Corrie Weekly Awards for May 15 - 19

Air Guitar Award: Luke

Musical Ambiance: Lost Boy by Ruth B. playing when Toyah was accusing Nick of being a bully in his insecurity over Oliver. Lyric that struck me : "Run, run, lost boy,  they say to me Away from all of reality"

Phrase of Doom award: Peter thinks things are looking up for a change. That struck me as the wrong thing to say on a soap. I may be wrong.

Mystic Meg award: How did Leanne and Toyah both know where Chloe lived?

Pants on fire award: Leanne offers to lie to the police about seeing Peter the night of the assault. They ought to be asking why she didn't say so before. Leanne and Toyah promised to lie to the police about Chloe attacking Toyah. And Nick, who did see Peter and could have given an alibi but lied by omission.

Droolworthy award: Rosie might not think highly of Adam's personality but it doesn't stop her from fancying him like mad.

Voice of Reason Award: Simon who told all the grownups to Grow Up, without having to use those words. Good lad.

Girl Next Door fail: Ian might not like his girls with too much makeup, preferring the natural look, but it's ok that Bethany's dressed in skin tight low cut high hemmed clothes.

Space Time Continuum Award: Nathan's going to be back in 10 minutes. Will Gary have enough time to get there and Bethany carried out? Of course he will. (these are the things that drive me mental, it would never happen unless Gary was right outside the door when Sarah called.)

Lines of the week:
Leanne "Nick, it really doesn't take that much discussion. Stop being such an old woman"
Tracy "I didn't come here for a game of who killed who"
Shona to David (man or dog, you decide) "If it isn't my favourite runt of the litter"
Peter to Nick "That wasn't in invite, that was a mind game, and you know it"
David "You can't tell Leanne you know she's lying because then she'll know what a vindictive psycho you are. No offence" Nick "None taken"
Nathan to Bethany "You'll feel Bang in the mood once you've had some sleep" (rather pointed choice of words, I thought)
David "This conversation's just reached peak stupid" (you started the conversation with Rosie, what did you expect?)
David to Nick "Happiness is wasted on someone like you" (yes, yes it is)
Amy "Oh I love that film (The Birds)" Tracy "What? When have you seen The Birds" Amy "Oh, Nana Blanche used to put it on for me when I had trouble sleeping" (HA)
Robert "I like a challenge" (cocktails) Rosie "I've been called that many times"

Could it be that Leanne and Toyah know Chloe's full name and she's in the phone book? If she's the only one with that name in a posh neighborhood served by Streetcars cabs, it's just a question of going over there. Might explain why both women figured it out.

Maybe, but people very rarely put their names in phone books any longer. Everyone I know is ex directory. I can't explain how they knew her details, but I don't think it's the phone book theory

Man of the Family award.David continues to impress me with his maturity and advice when talking to his 'older' brother who does view Oliver as a possession rather than a child.
Nick should start channelling his bullying tendencies towards Nathan and shown some concern for his niece instead of wallowing in self centered pity.
I thought it was odd that no one seemed concerned that Bethany wasn't at the naming ceremony.
