Quote of the episode:
Kelly: “Ooooh! I’ve just been electrocuted!”
Sean: “Oh, so that’s why your hair’s like that.”
Chesney and Kirk are still anti-Fiz over the whole she-loves-John–Stape-thing. Fiz is shocked to see she’s getting her letters she sent to John returned, with a note from him saying he doesn’t want to see her anymore. Chesney is looking for a job to save money to be able to move out when he’s 16. Ah, teenage angst.
Claire tells Ashley that his butchers should sponsor new uniforms for Joshua‘s football team. Ashley tells her to look elsewhere. She does this, then comes back after everyone has turned her down. Well, not everyone, she didn’t ask the Rovers! That’s the only business that’s making any money these days. Maybe little kids with liquor ads on their backs isn’t quite primary school material though. Peter wouldn’t even be able to watch Simon play!!! Ashley eventually concedes and sponsors.
Kelly electrocutes herself on her machine, as does Rosie when she tries to see what is the matter. Luke comes over to see if Rosie is alright. Rosie looks infatuated. Uh oh, we know what this look means = trouble! Tony’s being all misery and miserly and Luke insists that they spend money on health & safety matters. Tony disagrees and challenges him to find the money for it. I WONDER how he’ll do that? Rosie and Luke flirt over making fun of Tony. Rosie asks Luke if he’d like to further make fun of Tony over a pint or two, but he politely declines choosing business over pleasure. Although, he did look flattered and somewhat interested. He is a man, afterall. And John Stape can’t be the ONLY fool in Weatherfield, god knows.
Maria gets a shock when she thinks she’s in labour, and has Kirk drive her to the hospital. However, Kirk forgets how to drive all the sudden and Sally saves the day, by driving them there. Although, they find out it was all a false alarm, Maria was in false labour.
Gary tells Anna and Eddie the truth about the burglary when he finds out he wasn’t directly responsible for Ted‘s heart-attack and Ted has told as much to police. Anna makes Gary go down the police station and tell them EVERYTHING. Anna and Eddie warn Len to stay away from Gary and vice versa, saying he’s a bad example. Len is shocked when Eddie and Anna ban him from their house and lives. On his way to the police station, Gary threatens David in the street that he’s going to tell the police the truth. Gary looks nervous at the police station. (He’s so cute!!!) David thinks he’s bluffing, but can’t be sure. David has been stressing all day to be able to get back to his Gran’s house to put the family photos back before she arrives. However, he’s shocked to hear from Joe that Audrey and Gail are arriving earlier. Sure enough, the second David gets to Audrey‘s door, Gail and Audrey pile out of the cab. He tries his best to distract them so he can put the photos back, but fails miserably. Audrey quickly realizes all her photos are missing, then when looking for her insurance papers in a drawer, she finds them there! I can’t imagine how confusing this must be for her!!! David looks VERY troubled, very troubled indeed.
What’s the smell? That’s the sh*t hitting the fan, David Platt!
Good episode, albeit no words of wisdom from Blanche!
