- Kelly "Half the blokes thought i were a drag queen and the other half thought i were a Diana Ross lookalike booked as entertainment" (You know, i can kind of see that!)
- Becky "I want to see a film where a fat, balding, middle-aged pig dies in a chainsaw accident"
- Steve to Ashley "Men can't force women to have babies but women can force men NOT to have babies" (You know he's got a point!)
- Peter to Joe's request for cash "Tell me, what have I done to make you think I'm soft in the head?"
- Graeme "I don't think Gail could cope with another one like David."
- Joe "I'm not about to spontaneously combust!" (too bad)
- Audrey to Gail "It's so lovely you getting a second chance at your age." (fifth?)
- Lloyd "Joe's a very lucky man" (in whose universe?)
- Becky "I don't have to get wasted to have a good time!"
- Ted to Jo "Any last minute doubts?" Joe "Only whether i'm good enough for her" (I can answer that one. You're not.)
- Nick "If you weren't my mum, I'd marry you myself" David "That is so wrong on so many levels" (it was kind of ick wasn't it?)
Well that's one question answered. Sarah isn't coming to the wedding because Bethany has chicken pox. Why isn't Gail crushed? You'd think she would be but said she wanted a low key wedding anyway. It's your DAUGHTER and GRANDDAUGHTER! That's hardly high key though with Sarah it could be high drama. And the loan shark has returned and we will be treated to Joe shaking and grimacing and whining again. And why isn't Gail excited to be marrying the man she loves? Maybe because weddings are pretty much routine to her these days ;) Meanwhile, Rick is making sure Joe and his family are being threatened. Surely that's illegal? Can't Joe just go to the police? And if you declare yourself bankrupt, can loan sharks still come after you, legally i mean?
Joe's so desperate he's asking Peter for an advance of wages on a job he hasn't even got yet! He even cadged cash off Ted to pay some of what Rick says he owes. Is there no lengths to which he will stoop? Apparently not and even the wedding day is ruined for Joe when Rick lurks in the back of the pub. (Gail's fifth wedding to the fourth husband, married Brian twice, by the way) I was a bit surprised at the guest list at the wedding. Not even Gail's best friend Sally? And Graeme? Was he David's date?
Man, David and Nick sure tossed around a lot of old baggage didn't they? Seems a bit hypocritical of Nick accusing David of causing all kinds of family trouble and him being there to put a stop to it. Where was Nick all those years? Nottingham isn't that far away. Nobody can dredge up dirt like family, eh?
Molly's pushing for Tyrone to get a job out of Weatherfield but i fail to see how working for someone else is a step up from being half owner of a business that seems to be thriving. And they would never hire him without checking references and the only reference Tyrone would have is his current employer. Kevin.
That was an awful lot of noise Joe and Rick made banging about the garage door right under Rita's window and right outside Gail's house and nobody saw or heard? Rita sends a postcard from a round the world cruise and the photo on it? A picture of the boat. You'd think she would find something a bit nicer from one of the ports of call.
Must be hard for Hayley to hear Becky banging on about not wanting kids when Hayley would give anything to have one. Steve and Becky really are acting childishly aren't they? They don't know how to properly communicate and when they do, each seems to be too involved in their own side of things to try to see the other's.
I see illness hasn't affected Sally's sense of snobbery at all. Dressing up to see the surgeon! Nice to see Carla being very supportive but then as a woman, how could she not be? And have you ever noticed, it's easier to let your emotions out with someone more objective? Do you get the feeling that Michael LeVell was having a hard time doing the scenes where he was telling his father about the surgery and procedures? I thought he was, in particular, more than just acting so i wonder if the cast by that time those scenes were filmed knew that the actress was going through the same thing. He and Sally Whittaker (now Dynevor) are good mates as you would if you'd been working together as long as they have.
Ken, petition, anti-bar, grousing about George, private school, yadda yadda yadda. Deirdre's right, Ken would have done much better to support Peter. By fighting him every step of the way, he only pushed Peter into George's moneybags. Bins aren't being emptied because they're too full? Huh? You'd think Jason could get a couple of hours off for the wedding but then again, if he can't, then Tina shouldn't be so stroppy about it. Oh look Mary's back and she's not happy to see that cozy photo of Freda and Norris! Stalker, much?
My god, someone turned the vocal key on Amy and she said several whole sentences albeit still in that autobot voice. I'm sorry, i'm sure the little girl is very sweet but she's not a natural actress is she?
Did you notice Joe walking around the Kabin while eluding Rick? No Post Office by the door anymore and a previously unseen window pointing right at Gail's door. I've looked at all my photos and aside from the big picture windows on the front and side, i can't see where that blind-covered window would be. Hmm maybe it's the opening that they use to set up the window display. It's the only possibility.
