Update for Episode 6213 October 16, 2006
The girls are hanging around at the factory doing little as per usual. Needing some distraction from their hard graft they persuade Jessie the karaoke queen to get up on one of the machines and belt out one of her original compositions. (which quite frankly was terrible) Naturally Danny comes in at this less than opportune moment and invites her into his office for a chat. She apologizes but it is to no avail, Danny gives her the boot and she has sewn her last pair of knickers at UnderWorld.
Eileen sits in The Rovers looking quite sharp waiting to have a drink with Ed. Norris and Rita show up first and invite themselves to sit with her. Norris then proceeds to be a complete git, as is his wont. Ed and Emily eventually show up and jam themselves around the table to make a cozy group of five. Norris gets fully into his obnoxious mode and proceeds to insult everyone around him - christians, the homeless, ex-convicts, you name it. (I like how he viewed 'Let he who is without sin cast the first stone' as a cliche)
Eileen and Ed go for a walk to get a bit of peace and quiet but the conversation keeps returning to what Ed was in prison for. He says it was for aggravated burglary from the days when he ran with the wrong crowd.
Eileen invites him for a coffee but he begs off saying it would keep him up all night. Eileen coyly asks if this is a threat or a promise - oh the brazen hussy - and Ed seems a bit taken aback by this turn of events. He slinks off, saying he had promised to visit his mother that evening.
The Bunny Boiler
Jason continues to tell Violet that they should get married. Sarah continues to text him while he is professing his undying love for Violet. This leaves Violet in an understandable state of confusion.
Where does Violet go for advice on romantic matters? Why Sean of course. (since he has been so successful in matters of the heart) Does she love him? Well yes, maybe she still does. Does she trust him? Well that's a different story.
Where does Jason go for advice on romantic matters? Why Charlie of course. (since he has been so successful in matters of the heart) Is she a bunny boiler? Well yes, maybe she is. Does he love her? Well that's a different story.
Charlie then goes on about some research that was done in the states that determined all women are nutters and the only thing a bloke can do to make things right is say sorry. (I think I know a few of the women in that study) Jason plods off to buy some flowers - but for which girl it remains unclear.
Meanwhile Violet is sitting on a bench having a bit of a think. Frankie (bless her heart) comes by and invites Violet for dinner but she has to say no, as she is supposed to be at work at The Rovers already. Jason comes along and tells her that his offer of marriage still stands, But Violet tells him that will never happen. Good for you Violet.
Opting for Plan B Jason stops in at the Platts to apologize to Sarah. Sarah starts reading him the riot act in the living room so Gail asks them to go elsewhere and have their spat - so they opt for the privacy of the kitchen. She asks him why he did not return any of her 17 messages and texts. He says he was too busy. He tries to apologize but things turn ugly when they start talking about Violet. Sarah says she won't be 'sloppy seconds to that silly slapper'. (quality alliteration there) Jason calls her a 'bunny boiling freak'. Much vitriol and vituperation ensues (yes I can use alliteration as well) between the two brainless wonders before Jason storms out the door - never to return. (Phil is sitting on the sofa like a lump the whole time - he should have heaved Jason on the street) Sarah is so enraged by all this that she slaps David - probably because he was the nearest male.
The Bunny Boiler's Brother
David tells Gail that closing the car hatch on Phil's hand was an accident. Gail believes him. Phil seems unconvinced of David's innocence. The two cast baleful looks in each other's direction.Phil will be off work as a foot fiddler for two weeks beacuse of the injury - two unpaid weeks that is. When Jason shows up it is Phil who lets him in the door. Gail gives him a bit of grief for letting Jason cross the threshold and David chimes in by calling Phil a pillock. Phil looks ready to give David a kick in the arse for this, but David says he was calling Jason a pillock - not Phil. Neither of them believe this for a moment. Something bad is going to happen soon.
I think they should hang a sign over the door at Number 8 that says "Abandon hope all ye who enter here".
