Fight Club Update - Thursday
The First Rule of Corrie is You Don't Talk About Corrie
Danny's looking kind of rough going into the factory and the girls are giving him a bit of a hard time. He lets them get in their giggles and coos about the fight with Adam before he tells them to get back to work.
Meanwhile...over at the Barlow's, Ken and Deidre hear on the street that Adam has gotten into a fight. Ken compares the Baldwin boys to Cain and Abel and Deidre thinks that's some new reality show. (Okay, that was over the top. Deidre ain't that stupid.)
Blanch is wondering why Tyler's - I mean Adam's expensive new jacket has blood all over it. Enter surly teen with a nice piece of crumpet in tow. (Her name is Ellie). Ken tells young master Baldwin that they need to have a talk and when Adam does the 'Whatever' thang, Ken takes him to task about it.
The family sits down for a chinwag and Ken tries to impart to him his own experiences fighting a Baldwin and suggest that Adam focuses on getting his own life together. And Deidre makes a very smart suggestion that Adam go and see if Penny will give him his job back.
I DEFINATELY feel like that would be a good idea seeing as Adam maybe what Penny has left of Mike and therefore really want to help him out.
Over at the pub, Sean says something about 'Ooo 6 foot naught, looks of a catlogue model and the constitution of an ox.' and I got a start because I thought for a second I had been written into the script. Then I realized he was talking about Adam. sigh.
Anyway, Sean tries to reconnect with Adam, but Adam tells him thanks but he's not a touchy feely kind of guy.
Where Can I Get a Roommate Like That?
Okay, so Becky is cleaning and picking up for Kelly and Llyod and Glacia wonders why everytime someone moves in with us, they never offer to help out.
Lloyd loves it, but Kelly not so much and tells Becky to stop doing all the work and just be the guest.
I have a bad feeling that Kelly will be eating those words.
Frankie and Danny have more quibbles about the divorce settlement, specfiically how he told the solicitor that Nathan is living with her. She calls Danny pathetic saying that he's only lashing out because she won't reconcile with him. He says that's all nonsense, but no one is believing that.
As Frankie storms out of the factory she tells Leanne that she feels sorry for her. She says that Danny is still in love with her and when Leanne argues that Danny's with her now, Frankie replies, yeah but for how long.
Leanne confronts Danny about playing second fiddle to Frankie and Danny gives some excuse that if he was still in love with Frankie he'd give her all the money. He makes a few freudian slips about the money and good life being 'his' and not 'ours' (as in Danny and Leanne) and Leanne starts to worry.
She goes over to cafe to lash out at Frankie, but I think we can all see this is a running scared technique.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand she still has the Spanish will. Methinks that eventually Leanne will become Adam's new best friend.
Frankie, fed up with all the nonsense from the divorce decides to enjoy herself in the loving arms of Nathan and asks him to move in with her.
Nathan, Nathan, Nathan....anyone else beside John and I put off by his 'I'm a man who knows what he wants' comment and general behaviour way back during their dinner date at the restaurant?
'I'm no stranger to rubber gloves.' says Norris, offering to help Rita clean the pigeon poop off the Kabin windon.
Glacia goes into a weird nightmare dream trance where Fight Club is recasted with Norris replacing Brad Pitt in the 'glove' scene. She falls off the couch.
Anyway, gossip, gossip, gossip and Emily, Blanche and Norris talk about how friendly Rita and Archie are getting. Apparantly they ate an entire party pack of Twigletts together!
(Oh the times Mr. Glacia and I have indulged in twigletts....)
The Archie and Rita cart is however overturned when Rita catches wind that Audrey had dumped Keef. Worried that Audrey is on the prey for Archie, Rita stomps off when Archie says hello to her on the street.
Archie, of course, wants to know what the HELL is going on.
