Debbie!!! WHAT the hell???!!! (Update)

Inspired by Sarah’s subtle detective work, I decided to check out my man’s blackberry.  Imagine my surprise when I saw the list of people who’ve texted him,‘Mom, Debbie, Debbie,  Mom, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Debbie, Debbie, Debbie, Debbie, Wayne Newton, Debbie, Debbie,  Svetlana, Debbie!’

Meanwhile, On The Street

David took Jason’s cellphone and gave it to Sarah over at the salon saying that he found it on the street.  Of course this is all a ploy to get Sarah to read the texts that David has sent Jason from Becky’s cell.

Sarah confronts Jason and he swears he’s innocent – a fight ensues resulting in Sarah slamming the front door on Jason’s hand.   Sarah goes through his text messages (“I like skinny blonds) and he says that there’s no way he could have sent them, someone else must of them.  Neither can imagine who the hell would be playing pranks designed to cause grief in their marriage.  Nope, no one they know has a history of sending unwanted correspondance.

Seriously, if these two are this thick, they deserve whatever David throws at them.  

On a related note, I’d be pissed if someone was sending text messages to my man signed ‘XXXX’.  HOWEVER, I’d be even more pissed and I mean really pissed if my partner felt that they had every right to read my text messages.   The invasion of privacy infuriates me.

 Tony G. Indahouse

Apparantly Tony goes by ‘Tony G.’.  Whatever.   No man over the age of 36 needs a street name.

Here’s LIam’s announcement of his wedding ot Maria in a nutshell.

  • Carla not happy but faking it.
  • Tony is VERY freaking happy about it and buying champagne all around to celebrate.
  • Liam thinks he’s happy.
  • Maria is singing that Kylie Migonue song about being ‘lucky’.
  • Michelle is happy.

Then Maria announces to all and sundry that she’s pregnant.  Carla responds with some teeth grinding but makes a toast to Liam, Maria and the bump.   She then starts snogging Tony.  Liam responds by snogging Maria, all the while glancing over at Carla.

Wake me when this ‘filler’ storyline is over.

On The Scotty Evil Front

Vera and Jack put on a special dinner for the kids where they announce that they will be selling up and moving to Blackpool.  Tyrone and Molly are sad that they are leaving but more happy that the Duckworths will be living out their retirement dream.  (Just HOW good is Blackpool, btw?).

Then the camera moves over to Paul who is sweating, sweating, sweating and then I remember – oh riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, he’s stolen Jack’s identity and re-mortgage the house.   He quickly convinces Jack and Vera to go to Blackpook temporarily with a rented flat or caravan to test the waters of a Blackpool winter before commiting to selling the house.

He’s such a lame imitation of his dad.  See Terry, Terry would have taken a long drag off of his cigarette and while still holding the smoke in the back of his throat he’d tell Jack and Vera, ‘Well, you can’t sell up because I’ve remortgaged the house, right.  And there’s nuffin’ you can do about it, right.’  Then he’d exhale, stub out his fag and add, ‘Oh yeah, I’ve also sold your pigeons to pay off me tab at the track.’

Seriously Scotty, Amy’s eyebrows are more menancing.

In Other News

Bookie Jr. steals the streetcar that Lloyd was driving.   Bookie Sr. gives it back to Lloyd but tells him he has until Friday to pay back the loan.

That car is still stalking Ryan.

    Funny, I got that same text from Debbie…

  2. Gayle says:

    Loved the update! I so agree with your comments regarding how thick Jason and Sara are and where is Bethany? Sara is really geting on my nerves lately.
    I loved your comments regarding RTerry.

  3. Mandy says:

    I missed last night’s episode, but I love the update!! And I had a good chuckle at the start too.

  4. Michigander Fan says:

    Wow – Terry sounds awesomely evil! Now there’s a guy I could really commit to hating. (Kinda like JR Ewing.)

    I love how Sharah gave Jayshun a whole new injury to keep him off work. First her brother, then her. When is he going to realize that the Platts are physically painful for him to be around?

    I solved the stalking mystery – it’s Kit, from Nightrider. He must have had some procedures to stay so young looking (just like Hasselhoff!).

    If the pigeons move to Blackpool, will they keep flying home to Corrie Street?

  6. Michigander Fan says:

    Wow. Kunzie is very zen.


  7. debbie says:

    Are you serious? Seriously, do Sarah and Jason not know who sent the text messages?

    So, I’m to believe that they could figure out that David loosened the scaffolding but they can’t figure this out especially after David HANDED THE PHONE TO SARAH?!

    I missed this episode. I will miss the omnibus. I’m sad I wont be able to see that.

  8. Michigander Fan says:


    No VCR?

    Sadly, I tape the omnibus and watch it Sunday afternoon.

    I often also tape the weeknight ep and watch it later in the evening.

    I need my fix.


  9. geenee says:

    I love the pigeon question! What would they do?

    Sarah and Jason know David sent the cards, loosened the scaffolding and Sarah knows he deliberately sabotaged the wedding, but it never occurs to them that he could be tampering with the phones. It just doesn’t ring true!

    For awhile I was using 2 VCRs to tape Corrie, in case 1 didn’t work. That could be a bit obsessive.

  10. kunzie says:

    According to this little article in the New Yorker…you can’t move homing pigeons. If you must move them, they become “prisoners.” and have to fly around inside an aviary you build at your new house. Because they WILL always try to go home. Sniff.

  11. Glacia says:

    Glacia bows before Kunzie for quoting The New Yorker.


  12. Michigander Fan says:


    I feel a leetle bit better about my own Corrie OCD now. Once I figured out that there was stuff in the Omnibus that wasn’t on during the week, I knew I HAD to tape it. But can I wait until Sunday and just watch the whole thing? NO, because I need my daily fix, and my Corrie Canuck buddies (who would be a week ahead of me then). Besides, what if the VCR malfunctioned?

    I mis-set the tape for Cilla and Les’s wedding (and missed it) and have NEVER forgiven myself.

    Okay. Not the only quirky, over-involved one. That’s good. That’s much better.



  13. Michigander Fan says:

    Hey! Here (well, in Windsor) they aren’t showing Jeopardy after Corrie. They are showing Emmerdale. My theory (of course I have a theory – it’s me after all!) is that because Jeopardy is already being shown on NBC at 7:30 that CBC-Windsor cannot show it.

    Anyone else have this?

    Just curious. I’ve never actually watched Emmerdale. And I thought the Ceeb cancelled it altogether.


  14. eps says:

    My dream sequence:

    Sarah confronts David. A yelling match to put any fisher-wife to shame ensues, someone suddenly sees the metaphorical light and Sarah, Jason + Becky track David down. David hides, knowing Becky could easily kill him, Roy is bumbling behind (what now has become a mob) carrying his first aid kit, the mob is wearing Dark Ages clothing, carrying oil torches in the dead of night, David is in true fear for his life, scrambles up the scaffolding (that is now about as tall as the Empire State Building), sweating he hears the screams from the mob, loses his grip and falls to the earth.

    Gail appears in a light gray, stripped business suit and pips up in the squeak-and-annoy voice, “Now, where’s that David got to?”. Bethany looks up at her and says nothing.

  15. Michigander Fan says:

    Debbie said: “…but they can’t figure this out especially after David HANDED THE PHONE TO SARAH?!”

    Excellent point Debbie! You’re absolutely right – when David handed her the phone, that should have set all the warning bells off.

    I personally think that Sarah is yes, suspicious and jealous of Becky, but also on some level that she may not even consciously recognize I think she resents that she had to get a second job while he’s been at home. Injured it’s true, but when you are working 2 jobs to pay the bills, and you find out that your honey spent the day drinking tea in the caff (and “fixing the pipes”) instead of doing chores, it can really cheese you off.

    Perhaps Sarah isn’t that complex. However, it used to drive me crazy when my ex would drive 15 miles to cut his mother’s lawn, but would leave dirty dishes in the sink for me to clean up. (I was working, he was a full-time student.) His mother was not elderly and could have hired it done (or done it herself). If he would have EVER lifted a finger at our place, it wouldn’t have bothered me nearly as much.

    Perhaps I’m reading too much into this.



  16. Michigander Fan says:


    That is HILARIOUS!!! But where I really lost it was here: “Roy is bumbling behind (what now has become a mob) carrying his first aid kit,”
