You Killed Ernest, You Bastard!
Ed and Eileen are spending a lovely evening in playing a game of scrabble and all is well until Ed starts putting down words like ‘Hanky’, ‘Massage’, ‘Kama’ ‘Sutra’, ‘Sex’, ‘Rumpy’ and ‘Pumpy’.
Eileen thinks he is making fun of her and the wheel of Eileen’s insecurity start spinning. Ed tells her that he finds her very attractive and when she tries to make a joke, he tells her to not hide behind humour. Finally he decides to make the ultimate sacrifice and sleep with her so she won’t feel bad. Eileen has concerns about the tidiness of her bedroom, but Ed assures her he won’t be looking at her room.
The next morning, Eileen finds Ed awake in the living room and is now insecure about the fact that he keeps him wake. (Eileen needs to get some self confidence.) He assures her that it’s nothing to do with her, that after years in prison he’s never been a good sleeper. He doesn’t regret what they did and offers to proclaim his love on the roof tops.
They meet back at the Rovers and Ed tells her that he has plans and that he didn’t expect to fall in love with someone while completing these plans. He hopes that she will still be able to love him after she finds out about his past. Then he asks her to wait for him while he steps out even though he might be awhile.
Ed goes over to Emily’s place to have a chat and to make a very long painful exchange short, he tells her that he was the one holding the gun the night her husband Ernest was killed. Emily looks appropriately horrified and says, ‘You murdered my Ernest?’ (You bastard!)
On a side note, when Steve sees Ed going into the pub, he says, ‘Hey mate, it must have been a shock waking up next to Eileen.’ (WTF? Nasty! Ed should have knocked him one.)
Sex and Violets
Violet spends the night at Jamie’s, but they decide to put off the sex thing and he lets her have his bed while he bunks out on the couch. When she leaves the next day, Jason sees her and Jamie exchanging an early morning kiss and come charging up to her calling her a dirty slapper.
She tells him that what happens between her and Jamie is like the FT index for Jason, ‘None of his business.’ (I wish she had added the ‘Z’ finger snap in the air.)
Later at the pub, Jamie and Violet laugh about their evening together and how she told some girl that she looked like Ricky Gervais. (Is it just me, or does that seem really mean spirited of Violet. Why would you say that someone. Glacia worries about the fictional girl’s feelings.)
We’re All Going on a February Holiday
Sarah and Jason are off on vacay, leaving Bethany behind with Gail because Sarah REALLY needs a break.
Glacia thinks that Sarah needs to take care of her own damn kid. Gail’s a bitch, but I think she needs the break more.
David and Phil have some playful banter about the car boot/hand incident just before Phil goes out shopping with E.T. Phil comes back from the grocery store and presents David with a Westlife cd and Glacia googles ‘Westlife’. David gets mouthy about the pressie and tosses the CD aside telling Phil that it’s lame.
Phil tells David to pick the CD up and when he refuses, Phil grabs him, pulls him over to closet door and threatens to close it on his hand and does a whole spiel about how David thinks he’s special but he’s not. (I don’t know who’s giving me the bigger creeps.)
David runs out of the hosue when E.T. comes home and Phil shrugs his shoulders about ‘teens’. David then meets up with Jo and accepts an invite to her flat.
To Make Gravy and Fat, Flour, Spices and a WHOLE Lot of Stoly
Emily is hosting the book club luncheon and Rita is in the kitchen getting tanked, I mean getting the gravy ready.
New suggestions for books are bantered about suck as ‘Lace’ by Shirley Conrad, ‘The 39 Steps’ and finally Ken suggests ‘A Ladder in her Stockings’ by Kasey Kassem (I mean Kassira Kassiema or some such name.)
‘A Ladder in Her Stocking’ is about an elderly woman who wants to get it on one last time before she dies. This gets Rita very maudlin about how lonely it is to be old and how much it sucks not to get laid. (But I’m sure she said it in a more delicate fashion.).
Except for The 39 Steps’, I think the rest of the book suggestions were fictional. I wish they weren’t cause I’d love to start our own Corrie Canuck book club. Dammit.
Molly and Ty try out the chip truck for the first time down at the Red Rec. They have great success and make a nice tidy profit of £83.80. They are very happy with their success and drive back to Weatherfield.
On their way back, they see people waving to them and assume that everyone’s being extra friendly. That assumption is smashed once Molly smells something and realizes that the truck is on fire. They find a small lake and decide to drive the truck into it, because that is so much safer than just pulling the van over and calling the fire department.
Aaaaaaaaaaaanyway, they both escape from the Chip Van Inferno and manage a big smoochy out in the lake. Later we find them chuckling about the van catastrophe, not caring about losing this profitable business because they are in love.
Place Your Bets, Is She Another Daughter or a Baby/Mommy
Amber bugs Dev about how irresistible he is to all women and that it must be due to that 70’s crooner look he sports. More clever banter and father/daughter bonding occurs.
Later when Amber is in the shop, a young woman comes in looking for Dev. She won’t tell Amber who she is or why she wants Dev but tells her to pass on the message. Oh wait, maybe she did give her name, but I forget what it was.
A Charlie Ate My Baby
We see Charlie trying to be all human like as he plays with Amy who is looking appropriately cautious. This makes Tracey warm and fuzzy.
Meanwhile, Deidre lets Steve know that Tracey has moved in with Satan and that Amy is with them. Steve goes marching over to the garage and gives Charlie a big shove a tells him to stay away from Amy. Charlie knocks Steve to the ground and kicks sand in his face.
Moley, wise lady that she is, tells Steve to cool it because in the long run Charlie will get sick of playing happy family and Amy will soon enough be without a stable home. That will be Steve’s big opportunity to get Amy.
Finally, Charlie comes home to see Tracey getting ready for her emergency dentist appointment and she asks him to baby sit Amy. He says, ‘no’ and she leaves anyway. After her dentist appointment and 3 hour shopping excursion, she pops into the Rovers for a drink and tells a shocked Blanche that she’s left Amy alone with Charlie.
Blanche ponders what Charlie will do. Well, I think the answer is clear, because as we all know, Charlie consumes small children and puppies on a regular basis.
