Corrie Weekly Awards for June 12 - 16

Mama Lion award: Don't mess with the ones Rita loves! Awesome scene. We don't get to see Barbara Knox in meaty scenes like this much anymore.

Throwback award: Lovely little rememberences of Alf. Audrey said they only ever bickered, never had a "humdinger". I remember a few, don't you, dear viewer? Time smoothes off the edges, I suppose.

Dirty Dog award: Aidan knew Eva was waiting for him at the Bistro for dinner but he ignored the time and stayed in the Rovers flirting with Maria. Solution? Take the party to the Rovers instead. Then after saying Yes to Eva's proposal, he nips back to Maria's and insists nothing's changed between them. He also gets the I Want It All award.

Stylin' award: Eva's "Sexy Mexi" look

Musical Ambiance: "We've Got Tonight" by Bob Seger when Aidan and Maria talk in the pub. "We're on the Road to Nowhere" when Daniel approached Sinead in the pub.

Down off the high horse award: Jenny thought Eva's proposal was common until Kate reminded her she was proposed to in the factory.

Out of character award: Surely Ken would have brought a few "green for life" bags to Freshcos for his shopping?

Record breaker award: Looks like Tracy now has two friends. Beth and now Mary.

Smug award: Chesney couldn't contain himself when he saw Robert and Adam load an unconscious Daniel into the Bistro van. But he didn't tell Sinead like I thought he would. Yet.

Blood is Thicker Than Water: Adam threatened Robert with retribution if Daniel dies. You didn't think he much cared, did you?

Lines of the week:
David "That's just the way the mop flops"
David "Seven years' bad luck. Doubt I'll even notice"
Nicola "You look like a man who believes in redemption" (If only you knew!) Phelan "We're all screwed without it" (that's you screwed, then!)
David to Gail "If you had a brain cell, it'd be lonely"
Phelan "You think me being a serial killer might be a problem? I am joking!" (not by much)
Kate to Jenny "You sound funny when you talk through gritted teeth"
Aidan "I'm not having his wedding being camp!" Sean "Have you seen who you're marrying?"
Maria about Aidan "He only said yes because" David "He couldn't say no" Maria "Yeah" David "So he's weak" (got it!)
Jenny to Eva "Be very careful marrying a Connor. All they do is lie" (even more than you realize)
Liz "Steve. When you're in a hole, stop digging"
David about Bethany's family dinner plans "What's she trying to do? Convince herself we're the Waltons?"
Norris "Love is more addictive than drugs" (Daniel might agree. If he was conscious)
Rita to Jenny "You go in there (work) with your lippy on and your head held high"

Didn't Audrey nearly leave Alf for Malcolm Reid in 1988 and there was an incident in 1991 where she left him. The storyline was scrapped as Bryan Mosley had a heart attack.

Ken would definitely be a "bag for life" person, but they needed a flimsy bag to break in order for Johnny to come to his rescue! Pathetic writing. They could have had Johnny come round the corner or out of a shop and bump into Ken, making him drop the bag.

He could have just forgotten his "bag for life". He's had major stroke, member of his family trying to kill him giving him a head injury. His memory may not be as good at the moment!
