Rich Bride, Poor Bride
At the Platts’, Sarah-Lou and Jason have returned from their walk and tell Gail that they have come to an important decision regarding their wedding: they want a chocolate fountain. And by “they”, we, of course, mean Sarah. Jason just needs to know when to show up.
Gail congratulates them for making one decision in the 1001 other things they’ll need to decide before giving their money over to the Bridal/Industrial Complex.
Gail decides they should discuss the wedding in full with all family members in attendance, including Eileen, but not David.
Gail calls Audrey to invite her over but David overhears and asks if they were talking about him. Audrey makes like he’s being an egoïste.
Anyway, Bill thinks being excluded from the wedding isn’t such a bad thing.
Of course, later, as David is talking to Darryl outside the Platts, he sees Audrey and Bill pull up and head toward the house with a bottle of wine in tow.
As they discuss the chocolate fountain, the church, the chocolate fountain, the flowers, and the chocolate fountain, David stands in the window and stares through the net curtains. This may have been the first time a character stared through net curtains into a house.
Eventually, everyone is creeped out and Gail goes outside to talk to David. He claims they are talking about him but she brings him inside to show they are talking about the wedding. He seems offended that he’s not even considered part of the family anymore but Sarah is surprised he’d even want to be a part of the wedding.
He again apologises for what he did to Bethany but Sarah says maybe in a thousand years, she’d forgive him. He asks if he can help at the wedding or the stag do, but it’s made clear he’s not invited to either.
David then says there is no way, therefore, that this wedding will ever happen.
The Only Socially Acceptable Place An Adult Should Dress as a Pirate is at a Child’s Birthday Party
Corrie Canuck: For All Your Eurovision Needs
It’s Finlay’s pirate-themed birthday party and there are 800 children in the house, not much sign of Finlay, but a whole lot of Jerry.
He and Jodie engage in a little pirate skit in which he tells bad pirate jokes. Oooh, I got one!
Q: Why didn’t the little kids see ‘Sex in the City’?
A: Because it was rated “AAAARRRRRRRR!!!”
Anyway, he’s not staying long, as he has a hot date with his “partner” Eileen which involves dinner at Chesire’s finest Indian restaurant (his friend owns it and promises a 10% discount), and the rather presumptuous move of booking the hotel next door. The kids are therefore dumped on Jodie, who protests that she was meeting someone (she made a date with Lloyd at the Rovers).
Jerry asks who this is, despite having practically thrown her toward Lloyd the other day. She says nobody and Jerry figures it’s ok for her to break the date.
Later, she gets her friend to watch the kids while she quickly goes across the street to meet Lloyd. She’s apologetic at first but then goes into a long rant about how selfish her father is and how he takes her for granted. She then gives him a big kiss and agrees that they’ll meet again later, then returns to the party. Liz notes that she looks good in a skirt. Lloyd agrees.
At the Rover’s, Sean hasn’t turned up for his shift, leaving Violet to fill in. She gets a little queasy and starts feeling ill. Jamie takes her to the hospital, just to be sure, given what happened last time.
Later Sean walks in apologising for his lateness and tells Liz how he was transported to another world with Marcus and they talked all night and had an interlude in which they did their own version of the Haagen-Dasz commercial.
Liz tells him that Violet was taken to th’hospickle with Jamie and Sean flies out the door. Turns out Vi had some bad spaghetti but all is well.
Except that I think Violet will be leaning on Jamie on a little more in the future for these types of things.
