Yes, Virgina There Is a John Thomas
So on Friday's episode, Roy celebrates the battle of Trafalger at the cafe. Jack is uninterested until Roy explains that one of Jack's ancestors was Rear Admiral John Thomas Duckworth.
See, when I hear 'John Thomas' I'm thinking it's all fakey-fake, a historical character made up by the clever minds at Corrie.
Nope - there really was a JT Duckworth. AND he was born in Surrey, AND he was Commodore General of Newfoundland 1810-1812, AND there's a street named after him in Newfoundland.
Other Friday Events:
Gayle gets Phil over for a night of love and romance, except when they get to the romance part, she flips out in some kind of flashback nightmare of Richard and tells Phil to hit the road.
Bride-cilla doesn't think Kirkeh is up to the job as bestman, but Sophie and Chelsey suggest that they send him on a mission to complete 10 tasks to prove he's worthy. Bride-cilla calls him Kirkuleas and Glacia snorts Mai-Tai out of her nose.
Yana also waxes romantic about all the men in uniform she's loved before. I lost my notes, but she says something like, 'I just see an eppilet and I go all weak.' (I hear ya, sister, I hear you.)
The strike is still on, although Haley is having a hard time keeping the troops enthusiastic. Janice, on who's behalf the strike is on for, finds it hard to breakaway from her hangover to actual participate in the picket.
Sally decides to cross the picketline and there is much jostling and screaming, until Kevin comes over and tells them to lay off his wife.
