Update- Friday, December 14, 2007- All's Fair in Love and Whore
First, I apologize for posting so late. My internet has not being working, am I almost lost my privileges on my friend's computer when I disclosed that I would be posting a picture from "Pretty Woman", but with some fast talking I was able to get onto my friend's computer. Onto the update...
Janice, looking a bit stunned, speaks with the Concierge, who asks her if she is all right. She asks if she can have a drink at the bar, and he assures her she can.
Sometime later, Leanne comes back down into the lobby, and Janice finds her. They go to the bar, where Janice confronts Leanne, telling her she knows that she is not selling real estate, but is simply a prostitute. Leanne defends herself, pointing out she is not just any prostitute, she is a high class prostitute. Janice thinks Leanne is getting into semantics. Janice's belief that Leanne is ashamed seems to be confirmed when the Concierge calls Leanne by the name of "Rachel". Their conversation then ends, however, as Leanne's taxi has arrived.
Janice then returns to Coronation Street, where she runs into Less, and has to have an uncomfortable conversation with him about how proud she is of Leanne. She then goes to the Rover's, only to see Leanne there. She leaves, and Leanne follows. She catches up with Janice at the apartment, where they have a proper fight. Janice once again tells Leanne how vile her new career is. Lenne, who has, in the time she has left the Street, become pro-sex feminist, explains that what she is doing now is no different than what she had with Danny, or what Janice had with Less, except her pay is now better. When Janice does not buy the argument, Leanne tells her that Janice is broken down and going nowhere, and Leanne doesn't want to turn out like her. Janice decides mybe she doesn't need a roommate after all. Leanne agrees. She leaves.
Leanne then ends up at Gerry's, where she nurses a cup of coffee and stares mournfully out the window. Gerry tries to cheer her up, but nothing doing. Janice walks by, and Leanne motions her in. They kind of make up, and Janice invites her back to her home.
Gerry continues to welcome the people in off the Street, tells Cilla that they have run out of booze, and then unaccountably offers Hayley some. He charms Hayley, but Roy is a bit sullen.
Once the rush is over, Gerry pops over to the Rover's for a drink. There, he runs into Gayle and Sarah, and offers them a drink. Gayle pauses even longer than she did when Deirdre asked if she could light up, and then very reluctantly agrees. They talk about the neighbourhood, and Gayle says that they try and be considerate of each other, for instance, by keeping the music down. Gerry assures her that David can turn up the music as loud as he wants. Gayle is silent, but clearly not amused.
Apparently, Ken has not been wondering if Tracey is guilty all along, as, when Deirdre discusses his concerns about Tracey, he suggests that Tracey was only trying to "wind him up".
Meanwhile, Tracey discusses her concerns with Peter about Deirdre playing Columbo. Frankly, I didn't pay much attention to what they said because I spent part of the scene wishing Tracey would get her bangs out of her eyes, and then spending the rest of the scene mourning the fact that I have indeed turned into my mother.
