The episode in which Glacia discovers that she is old…..old, old, old. I have no idea who Jack Johnson or Mark Ronson are.
But in other music news, Morrissey is coming out with a new phonograph in 2009. Crank up your Victrolas!
The Lady Was Dead Depressed Because She Like That Geezer Who Was Well Fit and She Was a Right Minger.*
Sally asks Rosie to pick up a cd for her while she is in town. She wants the new Jack Ranson album…turns out she means Jack Johnson, the guy who does that thing with the guitar.
WHAT THE HELL IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?
Anyway, Rosie gets it and teases her mom a bit about who the present is for. (I think she’s being a bit of a bitch to mom, imho.) Sally gives it to John who says cheers and then takes Fizz home for a bit of Johnson.
In the Who Cares Department
Ashley and Claire are being civil to one another, but Claire makes it clear to Jerry that this does not mean they are getting back together.
Maybe It Was The SCENE Your Family Made at the Hospital
Turns out kids who aren’t feeling well in the Morton household get pop for breakfast. Jerry passes Finley a coke to go with his cereal in the morning…I didn’t see if Finley just poured it over the sugar coated maple bits or not.
Anyway, there’s ongoing argy bargy with Jody and Jerry about family responsibilities and a girl’s freedom to live it up. (moveout, moveout, moveout, moveout).
In the end Jody storms out of the house and leaves Jerry in charge. She goes over to the Rovers to see if Lloyd is up for a drink. He says, maybe some other time and gives her that squishy face look that says, ‘don’t hold your breath for ‘some other time.’’. So it would appear he’s gone off her. Personally, I don’t think it’s the fact that she has family responsibilities, I think it’s the argy bargy in her family that puts him off.
Sarah Louise, Still Pissed
Yep, she’s still angry about the dress, David, and everything. After griping to Maria in the salon, she’s informed by grandma that brother dearest is coming back to work. Sarah storms out claiming that she is gone …FOR GOOD!
Later she tries to get some sympathy from Jason, but he’s more concerned about the fact that they won’t be able to get their own place with neither of them working. Sarah thinks Jason is an ass and storms out.
Is it just me, or does it seem like Becky is just waiting in the wings for her shot at Mr. Gorgeous?
Oh the reason that David is back at the salon is because he asked to come back even though Gayle thinks it might be too much. He soooo loves working there, I swear if in 5 years he doesn’t inherit the Salon from Audrey and takes his place as the Sneaky Snake Straight Hairdresser I’ll cry. I’d like to see him become a bit of a Des Barnes…not truly evil, but not so nice either.
Oh BOY, Did I Say the Wrong Thing
Violet feels the baby kick in the morning but is a bit pissed when Sean touches her belly without her permission. He’s a bit hurt by this and doesn’t understand, but Marcus talks to him and tells him that preggy women don’t like to be manhandled like that.
Violet meanwhile goes shopping with Jamie for some new baby clothes, insisting that she’s not keen on handmedowns and she can well afford it on her p/t barmaid salary.
Back at the Rovers, Violet comes in and shows off the clothes to all and sundry. When Sean offers to help pay for the clothes V adamantly tells him that it’s not necessary, tyvm.
When someone suggests that Steve donates some of Amy’s clothes, Jason says, ‘Well, that won’t do much good, she needs boy’s clothes.’
Shit, meet fan.
Violet is very upset about the fact that everyone knew the gender of her baby before she did and is not about to forgive Sean easily. Later in the Ladies’ loo she tells Michelle that she resents the way Sean is getting involved with this baby because he’s just the DONOR, not the FATHER.
Glacia throws her hands up at this point. We told you it would all end in tears! Not excusing Sean’s behaviour with the baby’s gender, but I hate to say it, he is the father. WTF did she think? Her roommate, her coworker and someone she’s kind of declared as her best friend impregnates her…the same guy who happens to be SEAN…and you thought he was just going to sit back as ‘donor’?
Call me old fashioned, but I think Sean does have the right to be the sprog’s dad and that quite frankly the sprog has the right to have a relationship with his dad.
Glacia’s got a feeling this is going to all go bad, very, very bad in the end.
Spiderman vs. Batman
Heavy debates at Streetcars. John, I’ll just let you take this one.
*Guess the novel.
