Corrie Weekly Awards July 17 - 21

Intimidation Award: I hope the other officers saw that look Neil gave Craig before seeing the Inspector. That was pure intimidation.

Jailbait: Lara is 14. Nathan could most definitely be charged for using her in his sex parties. Too bad she is still refusing to testify.

Health Care Gold Medal: Seriously, the National Health really does work miracles. The number of times people have been near death and were up and running about within days, Chesney this week, is astonishing.

Obnoxious award: Actually, that's not nearly a strong enough word for what Brian is, writing Roy a 70 pound littering ticket for his lost receipt when Roy's the one that has graciously put a roof over his head. And Oh yes! Roy even brought up that veiled threat!

Buns of Steel: Eva and her step counter.

Let's Get Ready to Rumble: You could really hear Boo purr! I don't know whether that was sound added in post-production or not but it certainly looked like the cat was enjoying the attention.

Continuity Fail (?) award: Nick sold BOTH flats? Johnny's buying Carla's (so why is it Nick's to sell, not Carla's?) and someone else is buying Nick's, the flat, you may recall that I *thought* he was renting from Dev. When did he buy it?

How Soon They Forget award: Who was teaching who how to pull pints? Toyah and Peter have both worked in the Rovers before.

Musical Ambiance: "Our House" playing in the pub on the McDonalds' last day/Barlow-Battersby's first day.

Fashionista award: Liz even brought out her black spiky necklace for the goodbye party. We haven't seen that in ages!

Lines of the week:
Aidan "What's the catch?" Adam "There's no catch" (Oh yes there is)
Brian "Where's my butterfly bun?" (up your whotsis, sunshine)
Adam "Aidan's about as sharp as a marble"
Phelan "I think I've got an affinity with wolves" (Yes, you're about as terrifying as a lone wolf, too)
Neil "Everyone got what they paid for" (And that's the sound of the key turning in the lock of the cell door)
Tim "This weighs a ton. What you got in here? All your ex wives' wedding rings?"
Liz "At least drunk people are happy"
Sean "We've been bitching about you all night" Eva "Babes, don't worry about it" Sean "Good, cause we'll probably be bitching about you all tomorrow"
Liz "Last orders at the bar!"

Memory Award: Toyah mentioning Annie Walker, Bet Lynch and Vera Duckworth as former landladies of the Rovers. Poignant.

Putting Peter and Toyah at the Rovers is truly one of the biggest gaffes this show has ever produced.And Liz at the Medical Centre? Please.

Make it stop: Brian. As a garbage officer and as a boyfriend (Cathywheel my derrière. A Catherine Wheel is a medieval torture device, how lovey dovey is that?)

Where did you find gefilte fish in July? To Eileen, for her kind hearted but misguided attempt to make Nicola feel like family. This was my LOL moment this week (I'm Jewish and nearly spit out my coffee when I saw the table. What, no chopped liver? Bagels? Babka?) Garlic bread was a nice comedy touch.
