Corrie Weekly Awards for June 5 - 9

Cool as a cucumber award: I love that Audrey is being low key with Bethany. She doesn't mince words but she's not freaking out or having hysterics, even though she must have wanted to when she saw that burn mark on Bethany's arm.

Living in the past award: Denise must think Daniel is 10 because she asked if he still likes toast without the crust.

Fake out award: Bethany does a very good impression that Nathan has finished with her but it's a front.

Musical ambiance: George Michaels' "Freedom" playing in the pub when Aidan was buying jewelry for Maria and Sarah talked to Audrey about Bethany's situation under Nathan's thumb.

Continuity Fail: Ken had a stroke late last year and was warned to avoid stress. He's had nothing but since and this week tore each and every one of his family new ones and is still fit as a fiddle.

Horseshoe award: Tracy avoids jail yet again.

Joker's Wild award: Wait, did Roy just make a joke about a donut being similar to an ankle tag?

The Truth is Out There: Shona came clean to David. It was the right thing to do.

Open Mouth, Change Feet: Denise expounding on how great traveling was and wanting to do it again. When the abandoned Daniel was standing right behind her.

Bad Judgement Call: Johnny knows about Aidan's affair with Maria. It must have been the booze making him encourage Eva to propose!

Lines of the week: 
Phil the Jeweller to Eva "You've got a beautiful finger, you'll make some bloke very happy with it." (Top character, though, eh?)
Rita "If we ruled the world, Audrey, we'd have this sorted by dinnertime"
Denise to Sinead "I'm his mother and you've a lot to answer for"
Michelle about Leanne "You don't do to your mates what she did" Maria *koff*
Michelle "I hate to say it (no, you don't mind at all) but what goes around, comes around. C'est la vie!" Maria *koff*
Kirk "I'm a Maverick!" Johnny "It's just that you look like a puppy sitting next to a puddle"
Denise "I'm going nowhere" (Oh I DO hope she stays for awhile!)
David about the blackened toast "I don't know whether to eat it or send it a wreath"
Eileen "David Platt definitely falls into the 'you can't half pick them' territory"
Zeedan "You're a nurse and I'm a chef. I doubt it's a case of high blood pressure or over seasoning"

After hearing Eileen's somewhat nasty comment about David,I really want to Phelan's heinous crimes to be exposed just for her reaction!

I also want to see Michelle get her comeuppance as welllosing everything she ahs because OF Robert,hopefully when Will returns to make trouble for her!

Acting the grownup: Peter, for politely turning away Bethany and letting Sarah know right away about her odd behavior.

Who's afraid of the big bad Michelle: Robert. He and Leanne were friends first. He's helping her through a meltdown Corrie style (i.e., with a hug) until you know who walks in, then it's hands off.

Instalike: Denise Osborne. I started watching after she left and had only seen her in that one off when Daniel was about 10. She seems to be a strong lady who despite a very damaged relationship with her only child and a mystery mental illness, seems to be able to make friends, or at least hold an intelligent conversation with strangers. So far a big like. Please stay.

I think this is the first time I have disagreed with you abbyk. Did you see nothing wrong with Denise bragging of her freedom to travel knowing all the time she had abandoned Daniel for 7 years. Wow. It is no wonder that Daniel has issues. I am surprised the character is as sane as he is. I did not like Denise first time around and I really dislike her and her owl-like expression now.

No worries, Newfy Pearl. I don't read spoilers or watch old episodes, so I really don't know much about her. My take was that she was a free living traveler when she was young, way before Daniel was born, and her words were misunderstood. I'm also guessing she was an older new mom, so there would have been time for travel and a career before he arrived. Time will tell. Hey, I didn't like Yasmeen at first (LUV her now) and am very willing to change an opinion. Look forward to seeing this unfold.

Where's Emily?? said...

I never liked Denise...didn't she take off with her sisters husband at one time? Bugs me that she show's up and all of a sudden she should have an opinion about a son she abandoned.Seems that she's given up that right. Just go Denise, somebody somewhere needs a bad haircut.

Love Zeedan and wish he would get more storylines, warming to Rana,can't stand Alya, and warming to the handwaving, overacting, Yasmeen.

I can see your viewpoint abbyk. I guess it is like when Stella came to the show...most people disliked her but I didn't. I enjoyed her very much. Have a great day. :-)
