This Family Needs an Intervention
The girls (especially Janice) are giving Sally a hard time about being 'uppity'. My favorite line is when Janice says that Sally is only working at the factory to send her girls to a posh school.
I'm sorry, at what point did working hard to give your children a good education become a BAD thing to do?
The mockery continues outside and when Sal is greeted by Kev and the girls it is discovered that....SHOCKING!!!....there's a vegetarian living on the street!!! Kelly and Janice get in some good lines trying to tempt Kev back to their flat for 'dinner' and Kev gives this very cute and saucy wink to them as he goes off with Sal.
So, now that Janice thinks it's 'uncool' to be a vegetarian, Sally is going to do everything to make sure Rosie gets vegetarian meals and serves up some veggies in that grand British cooking style known as 'boiling food beyond recognition'.
Everyone refuses to eat this, including Rosie and Sal has a breakdown.
Sally, sistah, this last year I've dealt with my sister demanding meat in our vegetarian household. So I ended up cooking two meals. Then my hubby wanted low carb. Three meals.
Now I make one. You either eat it, or make your own. I think Rosie is old enough to fry her own tofu, goddammit.
Danny is using Mike's place to have a low down dirty affair with Leanne, all under the guise of having 'business' on the side.
Shame, oh, shame.
Hmmm, anymore sad ass than Stepford Shel STILL in her freakin' PJ's apologizing to Charlie basically for her existence?
Bev, meanwhile is sending letters to Shel begging her to get help. The last one being a pamphlet for a women's shelter. Shel is not pleased.
In the grand Battle of Entitlement, it's Blanche vs. Tracey.
Tracey is happily making plans for her new digs, when Blanche announces that she is selling the house. She wants to use that money to get a hip replacement from private medicare rather than waiting for the national health care to get her one in two years.
Bob's Your Uncle
Over at the Weatherfield Arms:
Bob is reciting poetry to Liz.
Liz twirls her hair and makes coweyes.
Steve barfs at the thought of getting a new 'uncle'.
Let Us Not Forget
Roy's grandfather died. I forgot all about this story line.
Roy inherited a large brown envelope, which I was seriously hoping would be a big wad of cash, but it was a picture of him and the grandfather and some invention by granddad cropper.
