Paul…who I’m now calling Scotty Evil as he is a very pale imitation of his more dastardly father Terry has lost his recipe book. He thinks he’s left it in the café and asks Becky and Roy to look around but they can’t find it in the lost and found box.
Meanwhile, the special of the day at Roy’s Rolls is a Canard Confit and Parmesan Risotto with wild mushrooms cooked with a 1995 French Chardonnay reduction, all presented on a bed of wild greens and lingaberry sauce.
You think you left your recipe book in another restaurant? Pathetic.
More Stupid Than Evil
Rosie invites jJohn over to the house as she has it to herself all day long. He didn’t say yes, but Rosie says, ‘You will.’ Later in the pub he tells Fizz that he can’t go out that night because he has to mark essays. When she asks if he can’t do that on Saturday he says no because there’s an emergency meeting of the Weatherfield High Glee Club and Terrorist Association. He can’t even look her in the face as he says this.
John is a complete and utter idiot. I’m leaving the creep factor aside, this guy is just out right STUPID. Going to a student’s house to have a tumble in her bed? And you’re doing this why? Because she fluttered her eyes at you….what are you 14? I’m already chilling the champagne for the ‘John Meet Kev’s Fist’ episode.
Anyway, Fizz starts thinking about his sudden changes in plans and immediately runs over to Kev’s – ‘I’m TOTALLY convinced they’re up to something!’. Kev starts to believe her and they hatch a plan to catch the two of them together.

Sarah is still jealous of Becky and makes a snide remark to Becky in the café about how she needs her highlights touched up. Jason later sends Becky an apologizing for Sarah’s behaviour. Sarah finds out, but Jason smoothes everything over with her.
However, he foolishly leaves his cell phone lying around while him and Sarah are out and David catches Becky’s response text to Jason. ‘NP we’re still mates.’ David takes the opportunity to respond as Jason, ‘Yeah we are. X’. Becky responds, ‘Cheers, XX’. David responds, ‘Good stuff XXX.’ Becky, ‘It is! XXXX.’ David, ‘Well, isn’t it just? XXXXX.’ Becky, ’Hey, is year 2000 marked in roman numerals as XX? XXXXXX.’ David, ‘No, it’s MM. I think The year 20 would be XX. XXXXXXX.’ Becky, ‘Xcellent. XXXXXXXX, Bex.’

Later at the Rovers Sean says he wants access to his baby, Violet says, ‘MINE baby.’, Sean retorts, ‘OUR baby.’, to which Violet responds by marching out and Sean follows suit. Marcus and Jamie give each other the ‘Oh dear oh dear what are we going to do?’ looks. The End.

I’ve found my new role if Fat Brenda is already cast. Mrs. Shapiro the Swinger from Swinton…65 years old and still make a move on the boys! Apparantly, Bill sent Roger over to her place to ‘fix her plumbing’ and all Mrs. Shapiro could do was throw double entrendres around like yesterday’s pancakes. That reminds me, where the HELL is Blanche?
Jack and Vera are a bit blue being back from Blackpool and Vera goes so far as to suggest they move there. (A request for the comments – I think most of us know how the Jack and Vera storyline plays out, but if we could refrain from spoilers for those who don’t know.).
Doreen invites Norris out for lunch where she tells him how Rita tried to persuade her that Norris is a dud. She tells Norris that Rita’s doing that to keep him for herself and so she will not stand in the way of the Norris/Rita love connection. Norris is livid and tells Rita to mind her own business. Rita maintains that she’s just trying to protect him from the MAAAAAAN EATER.
