Art History Update
If It Ain't Dutch, It Ain't Much
Jack has stated once again that he doesn't want any fuss on his 70th, other than breakfast and bed...and ONLY breakfast in bed. Oh and the racing form, thankyouverymuch.
Vera says that's great but she won't be around because her, Molly and Fizz are off to Amsterdam to enjoy all that Les Pays-Bas has to offer, specifically, waccy-baccy, the red light district and some Veneers.
The will also be looking at some lovely Dick Van Dykes* while they're there.
Tyrone is shocked that they won't be here to celebrate, but Jack just flat out doesn't believe them.
I think Vera would be a HOOT to travel around Europe with.
Did Anyone Else Notice that Roy's Rolls Serves McCain Fries?
Haley makes it to the community centre to do her first class in adult literacy, when guess who she runs into?
Oh yeah, chain smoking, underfed, sniffing Becky is deeeelighted that Haley is the instructor and wants to make sure that she's in every single one of her classes.
Haley is less excited and actually seems fearful of Becky. She tells Becky that she didn't like the way Becky framed Kelly, but Becky claims she doesn't remember the incident as she was in a bad head space at that time.
She makes it to the bus stop and is worried when Becky comes traipsing up to her. Turns out that Becky just wanted to return her purse. Becky then tells Haley that she does feel bad about Kelly and is trying hard to turn over a new leaf. Haley wishes her the best of British luck with that.
Back at the cafe, Haley tells Roy all about it and how upset she is that Becky is in her class. Roy asks Haley if she doesn't think Becky deserves to get a chance like everyone else.
Note: Kudos on the makeup department again for making Becky look so strung out.
Also, is one allowed to smoke in the community centres in England?
If the Shrew Fits
Tracey is being very forgiving of Charlie and he is being very suspicious.
They make their way to the pub where Tracey announces to everyone that her and Charlie are back together and if anyone would like to buy them a congratulatory drink, they'll be sitting at the table right over there, thankyouverymuch.
Bev asks Tracey if she has no self respect.
Gin soaked, urn toting, wearing your wedding dress to the funeral Bev has asked Tracey if she has no self respect.
Who's watching Amy? Didn't Deidre refuse to?
Cilla Batersby - Feminist
Cilla has decided against the boob job because....society puts too much pressure on women to look perfect.
And speaking of perfect, Yana's leopard skin skirt was to die for.
Has He Been Acting Weird?
Danny and Jamie have a talk and in the end Jamie tells Danny that all is forgiven and that he and Frankie should stay in Weatherfield where they can all be a happy family. Danny is bewildered, but overjoyed that his son has returned to the bosom of his arms.
Jamie leaves and when Frankie returns, Danny asks her if she thinks Jamie has been acting weird lately? Frankie, after a pregnant pause, asks Danny what he means. Danny says that Jamie said the strangest thing to him. Frankie waddles over to Danny and says, 'Like what.'
Danny tells about their reconcilliation and Frankie, like a woman who just got a negative result on a pregnancy test, breathes a sigh of relief.
She goes over to the house and has it out with Jamie and the upshot is, she tells him that if he really loved her he wouldn't cause her pain. He agrees.
Later in the pub, Danny asks Jamie to join them for a drink and he agrees. Jamie and Frankie sit down at a table, where Frankie carefully lowers herself down into the chair, taking a load off her feet. She tells him he's doing a good job on behaving.
In other news....
Bill tries to get Audrey to get loaded with him, but she stops at one drink.
And I love Mr.Spence. Mr. Spence is lush. Mr. Spence is well fit.
*Glacia once said 'Van Dyke' at a pub night many years ago and was cruelly, cruelly mocked by her friends. She is still in therapy.
