Update for Tuesday, August 17, 2010. The Scary Update
Michelle is on the phone, complaining to Dev about the hired builder’s behaviour and the unwanted kiss.
“Don’t laugh. How would you like it if someone came through your window and … never mind, don’t answer that.”
Ryan and Ben arrive home and Michelle tells them what happened. Ryan suggests she must have done something to encourage her. Maybe it was something she was wearing. Or not wearing.
But Ryan, seriously? Don’t ever suggest that to someone who’s had an unwanted advance put upon them.
Ben asks her if she’s ok but really, he’s asking her for a reenactment of the scene, complete with bath bubbles. Yeah, we all saw how you were checking out your friend’s mother. Don’t deny it. She’s still got a bod that would make a bishop kick out a stained glass window.
Later that day, Jake appears at her window again. She tells him to bug off but he insists on going up to the top of the roof to finish fixing it. Michelle calls the police.
The police arrive to sort it out and one even tries to ask Michelle to chalk the whole thing up to a misunderstanding. But then he tries to kiss her and the police take him away.
In the pub, Michelle recounts the whole tale to Liz and Julie suggests he was just being friendly. She says she never wants to his smug, grinning, so very handsome face ever again. Kelly and Julie agree that she wants to have his babies.
But can an unwanted sexual advance be forgiven in light of rugged good looks and a rakish charm? On this show? Yes.
The Scary Procedure
Ashley has finally decided to have his balls removed his vasectomy as per Claire’s request. Graeme is mercilessly teasing him about the doctor sneezing right in the middle of the “snip snip”
“Is Daddy getting a haircut?” Joshua asks.
“Good luck!” Graeme says then, in a higher voice, “GOOD LUCK!”
When Ashley gets back, he’s in much pain. Joshua sees this on his way out to trick or treating.
“Mummy I don’t want another haircut.”
The Scary Bank Account
Rosie is at home, sulking in her pajamas about her lost money. Kevin suggests selling the car.
“NO. WAY. I love that car!”
“Ok, how about that handbag that cost 2 grand?”
“It cost 3 grand and I lost it in a club.”
“SWEET FANCY MOSES! YOU’RE AN IDIOT!”
“Gee, thanks for all your support, Dad!”
At the factory, Rosie asks Tony for help on the money front. He says he needs a new PA. Rosie thinks it’s beneath her but Sally steps up and takes. Rosie feels betrayed.
“Well, I did give you first refusal.”
In the Rovers, she complains about how Sally shouldn’t have taken the job but also how she doesn’t need Tony’s money. But when it’s time to pay for the drinks, she decides that she does need her parents’ money.
She becomes upset about the whole Luke and collapses in Kevin’s arms. Molly walks in, sees this, glares at him, and leaves. Stupid Kevin, comforting his daughter like that.
The Scary Heart Condition
Maria is off to Cyprus to visit her barely interested parents (Seriously? Have they ever shown up for ANY of Maria’s life events?). She promises to get on the Skype in an internet cafe once she arrives. He also admits to having a bit of indigestion.
They have their video conference as planned when she gets to Cyprus and Tony talks to her and tells her that he and Ozzy miss her. As he leaves the darkened factory, fireworks start going off as Tony clutches his chest. Ozzy runs off and Tony slumps to the side of the Kabin as he is taunted by a trio of teens in monster masks. Just then, a car drives by playing that shitty techno music that the British insist on supporting.
It’s all very disorienting for a guy having a heart attack and he falls to the ground and whispers one last word: “Maria! I just met a girl named Maria!”
Ok, he just says Maria.
Other Scary Things
There’s good bat sighting in Weatherfield tonight, according to Roy who’s back from Romania and, like the good patriotic man that he is, he’s sporting his poppy for Remembrance Day. First one on the street. He also tells Pam that the Vampire lore around Romania is largely Xenophobic. Roy should donate to the American Vampire League, to help eliminate prejudice.
And The Scariest of All
Kelly ate all the chocolate ones! Right in front of Julie! Bitch.
