It's a Drag Update
Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Keith… I SAID, Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Good time Archie swings into town and asks Rita to come with him to the ‘opera’ later that night. Rita gladly accepts but is later worried that Archie hasn’t planned something too highbrow.
No worries on that point, Archie is taking her to the avant garde stylings of 'The Ladyboys of Bangkok’ HURRAH!
Meanwhile, Keith has a whirlwind date planned for himself and Audrey. A day slogging around the countryside topped off with tea and crumpets and an over 60’s event. Audrey ponders this for about .5 seconds and tells him she’ll take a pass.
She tells him that she doesn’t own a pair of sensible shoes and has no intention of acquiring a pair for countryside outings. ‘I’ve climbed mountains in slingbacks’ she responds when he suggests buying a pair for further outings. She further explains that she really doesn’t want to hang out with the OAP set.
Keith, and I believe this may be the final nail in the coffin of their relationship, tells her that it’s time for her to start acting her age.
Keith! Come on, dude!
To make matters worse, the walk out of the salon JUST in time to see Archie whisk Rita off in his sexy black convertible. As they drive off leaving Audrey and Keef in the dust, Audrey tells him not to say a word.
Meanwhile, meanwhile, back at the Rovers, a slightly bitter Blanche expresses her disgust to Sean about Archie’s choice of show. ‘All those perver-sexuals, tucking their tackle where the sun don’t shine!’
BTW - Archie is DEFINATLY OAP tottie - for that car alone.
I Want To Be Sedated
Oh my God, Gayle is really going off her nut. She’s decided take a sick day off and stay at home because, ‘I’m not fit to be around humanity.’
Gayle, sweetie, that’s nothing new.
Anyone remember annoying depressed Gayle back in 1995 when Martin had the affair? This is a repeat performance and makes me want to just send a box of sleeping pills to her fedex. Sarah tries once again to be the voice of reason and tries to calm down Gayle who by this point is in such a fit of paranoia she begins to suspect such evil gin soaked bitches as Claire and Emily.
Hello! How about Bethany?!
Later at the Kabin, Gayle komes in for some kondiments, khokolate and kigarettes and is subjekted to wikked gossip from Norris, Blanche and Rita. There’s a suggested that about her going off the deep end and sending the greeting kards to herself as a kry for help.
She storms out of shop and runs into Eileen who tries to hold out an olive branch, noting that Gayle’s going through a lot and doesn’t need grief from her. Gayle’s not in a forgiving mood and even more so when she see the Richard Hillman twin that Les has been on about.
Audrey comes over to check on Gayle and when Gayle starts going on about seeing Hillman, Audrey suggest that Gayle get some medical help.
If You Got The Time…
We get a look at the shangrila that is Lister’s flat - splendid in purple stripped wallpaper, dart board, empty beer cans, a neon ‘Jazz’ sign and a fishnet sock leg lamp marked ‘Fragile’.
Glacia puts down her Harvey Wallbanger in order to call in a 911 to Colin and Justin.
Kelly is wisely picking out new wallpaper when Lister asks why she’s not wearing the watch Becky gave her. Kelly is convinced that the watch is hot even after Lister shows her some ‘this watch is not hot’ engraving on the back.
They head over to Rovers where Becky catches up with them and tries to join them for a few brewskis. When Kelly passes on the threesome, Becky notices that she’s not wearing the watch. She tells Kelly it’s okay if she doesn’t like it, she’ll exchange it for something else.
Kelly tells her that it’s not that she doesn’t like it, it’s just that it’s a bit HOT for her wrist. Becky is rightfully insulted and later on the street throws the receipt in Kelly’s face.
Kelly must be pretty full from all the humble pie she’s been eating this week.

Rosie comes home and Craig joins her parents at the hospital to pick her up. Sally comes home later that day to find that Craig has been waiting on her daughter hand and food – feeding her seiten soup and reading Edward Gorey poetry.
Mrs. Webster is pleased.
Les and Ches are becoming quite a unit and Les is proudly telling everyone and sundry that he’s going to pass on all his worldly knowledge to Chesney and gee, don’t they even look alike.
Chesney is very happy when Les says that he tells the passengers in his cab that he has four kids, Gregory (aka Sally's ex-lover), Toyah, Leanne and Chesney.
