Jason of Nazareth Update - for Friday Aug 31/07
I Keep Waiting for Her to Sing Jerusalem
Minor storyline, but it provided my favorite line of the episode.
Eileen talks to Claire about the fishing licence - oh wait - sorry, I mean baptism lessons. She comments on how she just finds it weird and arbitrary the religion people take on, that if she was born in India she'd be a hindu or if she was born in Isreal she'd be a Jew...so yeah, Eileen is really pumped about being baptised.
Turns out however that the pastor is trying to get Eileen to join the choir, which I don't think she's actually opposed to as she seems to like the old tyme hymns and wants to sing them.
Claire says something about how nice the vicar is and Eileen says, yes but he could switch any conversation over to 'HALLELUJAH GOD!'.* And here's my favorite...Eileen says she's almost afraid to tell the vicar that Jason is a carpenter.
Later in the pub we hear Eileen singing a snappy little tune.
Bring me my bow (my bow) of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spears o'clouds unfold
Bring me my chariot of fire **
Oh yeah, Bev went a bought a christening gown for Freddy, but Claire says she wishes Bev had told her before she bought it as they were planning to use a family gown.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Norris
The garage seems to be the latest target of the mystery sprayer, but while Norris is having a fit, Kevin doesn't seem to actually care. He just opens the garage door and et voila, graffiti be gone!
Norris is even more determined to catch the culprit and at once accuses David of being the rat bastard who's spraying up the street. Gayle says, and everyone agrees, that this kind of thing would just be too much damn work for David.
Later that night, Norris is standing at the door of Emily's keeping an eye out. He is rewarded when a heavily hooded youth starts spray painting the shop. Emily wants to call the police, but Norris, aka Superfly decides to take matters into his own hands. He grabs the youth, but gets and elbow in the ribs (or at least that's what it looks like) and is forced to release the rapscallion as he falls to the ground.
Rita and Emily come to his aid and Rita tells him it's not like the old days when you could just box a wayward guttersnipe around the ears.
BONUS FUN: Who can tell me what Norris's favorite dinner is?
Audrey's Bill Has Arrived
Gayle goes around to the Webster's to talk about getting a old beater for David to fix up.
On a quick side note: I must be the only person on earth who doesn't think this is such a bad idea. It's not like she's buying him a fiat, she's getting him something that hopefully will keep him busy and maybe teach him something. If it's not stupid expensive, I think she should go for it.
When Audrey hears that Gayle is going over, she invites herself along. Once there, she really doesn't even pretend that she isn't there for Bill. Once he arrives her face lights up and gladly goes out with him to the Rovers.
And just for those of you who are keeping note, Audrey says that she likes her men 'rough and ready'.
Well, bloody cheers to that!
It's Time to Put in a 911 to Colin and Justin
Les and Chesney go up to the attic to give the first look around before renovations start. Chesney proclaims that it will be a grand fix up because 'Uncle Les can do anything!'
Lord, come on. This is a kid, who a few days ago, announced that he was 12 and savvy to ways of the world. Does HE even believe this Uncle Les deification?
Well, Les certainly doesn't and buys Charlie a pint for some quick advice on how to get started. Charlie accepts the pint and gives him a word of advice, 'Hire a professional.'
Even Jason thought was bastardly and Les proclaims that he spent his last bit of money on Charlie's pint. Charlie, of course, is nonplus and says that he doubts that Les would have given him a free cab ride. (Yeah, okay, but it was still a shit thing to do.).
Later back at the Battersby's Rosie tells Chesney to get Les to ask Bill for some help. Chesney says that Les needs no help because he can do *anything*. (Oh come one, give me a break.) Rosie tries to bring him back down with two words, 'Jacuzzi and roof.'.
And Oh Yeah This Story.....
Deidre comes over to Charlie's house and when Charlie tries to explain to Deidre that the last night's floor show was a game initiated by Tracey....Tracey refuses to agree that it was a game. She pushes Deidre out the door and tells her that she's just making things worse with all her questions.
Charlie tells Tracey that he's getting a bit bored with these 'games' and that she should be careful because he doesn't like her that much.
She tries to make up by telling him that she'll get take out for his dinner. He seems pleased with that as does she. Until of course he drives away, then her eyes turn this weird red/green colour.
In Other News
Mr.Bickles is back on the street and being walked by Ken.
Sophie still loves Mr.Spence her Capoeira dance instructor. Oh wait...that's Debbie.
* In reality, most religious people I know can carry on a conversation that excludes 'HALLELUJAH GOD', enjoy a pint or two, like their sports and there's the occasional priest that will let me bum a smoke off of them.
** Yeah, yeah, I know she wasn't singing Jerusalem, I just like it.
