Monday September 29th 2008 – The Spit it OUT Update



UK Time Monday December 17th 2007 – Episode 2

The episode opens with Michelle and Liam in the parkette across from stalker central. Michelle is in hysterics much to the annoyance of several Corrie Canucksters. How could this boy look just like Dean? Did Dean have an affair? What’s going on?

Liam and Michelle stay outside hoping to catch a glimpse of the boy, but they miss him every time and decide that have to go confront the stalker. Once they get to the door they see the stalker and are invited into his home. Here we are forced to sit through this man telling the story. As it was clearly written by the staff of Young and the Restless, I’ll condense it for you: Due to some medical problems leading to subsequent tests, this family found out they had the wrong son. There was only one other boy born at that Manchester hospital that day (totally likely in a city of 458, 000), he is Michelle’s son. Michelle can’t take it and run out of the house, again in hysterics. Luckily Steve has just pulled up and after not returning his calls all day she runs, in hysterics, into his arms and begs him to take her home. It could be worse Cunucksters, she could be our Katie. Remember that?

Later in the car, Steve is trying to get Michelle to tell him what’s going on. She doesn’t. Basically, this goes on for an eternity – well, for a large part of the episode. By the end of the episode, she tells Steve what’s going on and he is very much the supportive boyfriend doing everything he can to poke holes in the story. Michelle, however, looks worried. Maybe she thinks it could be true? Soon she sees Ryan, hugs him and telling him how much she loves him. I have a feeling we are going to have to see a lot of crying and worry from Michelle.

Could This Be David in Italy?

Could This Be David in Italy?

Sarah Platt is bringing out the big guns now. She has been planting the idea that David is “back” on drugs, but, David never really took drugs. He was certainly never an addict. He was careless and that almost killed that weird looking kid who is on the show from time to time.

For the whole show Sarah tries to get Gail to believe that David is using. The best part is that Sarah tells Gail that he has mood swing. Gail says it is because he’s leaving home. You know, because he loves it so much there.

Anyway, Sarah does repeat her warning to David that he wont be going anywhere. I am starting to believe her.

Mel and her 35 year-old bezzie mate hit the town together and get hammered on Jerry’s dime. Great guy. The bookie son, Dan Mason, first plays all hard to get then shows up at the pub ready to mack on the 35 year-old bezzie mate.

Result! She goes home with him and guess who’s moved in. His dad Harry has decided to move in with Dan because his now ex-wife has changed the locks. This, my friends, is why you don’t give your parents the spare key.

Its Rosenkelly and Wikistern!

It's Rosenkelly and Wikistern!

Kelly and Wiki are basically the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the episode. I was loving them. I also agreed with Kelly when she was saying that the half day off is good, but they are spending while they are earning, therefore they are loosing money.

While they were in the pub they ran into Carla and Tony who made a joke about them going back to work, so Rosencrantz and Guildenstern would skitter away? So, does anyone else thing that the Connors don’t treat their staff with respect?

Know what I’m real happy about? Two episodes, no Rosie and John. Thanks for the break.

    Ha ha, I thought that was a big loogie flying from David Beckham’s mouth… then I saw that it was water. I hope it’s water.

    I missed this episode. Every so often on my television set CBC just craps out and is too blurry to bother watching. This website saves me in times like that, especially since CBC got the brilliant idea of only posting the episodes -after- Sunday’s marathon.

  2. Pauline says:

    Wouldn’t it have been easier for this “stalker” guy (sorry, don’t know his name), to approach Michelle and tell her what he has discovered regarding taking home the wrong babies? Why stalk Ryan and scare the life out of him and Michelle?

    I can’t stand Vi’s sister, Lauren. Does she HAVE TO purse her lips after everything she says?

    Uncle Stephen’s fake Canadian accent is aggravating too. I can’t wait until he and Devil Boy jet off to Milan. Arrivederci, eh?


  3. Michigander Fan says:


    Because that would have been a logical and adult thing to do. Much better to “only have a look” and then of course allow it to escalate from there.

    Not to mention (not trying to sound callous here) but regardless of genetics, if you raise a kid for 15 years, isn’t he your son, even if he’s not your son? What are they going to do, switch back?


  4. Michigander Fan says:

    Fave line of the episode:

    Kelly’s going on about not working and drinking, and Wiki agrees with her, and Kelly saus, Well don’t just agree with me!”

    And Wiki says, “It’s easier this way.”

    Wiki: a future Blanche in training?


  5. Mandy says:

    Ryan is cuter.

  6. Piper says:

    Is the flat that the Mason’s are living in the same place where Katy and Martin lived? Also, can someone please remind me where Lloyd lives? I remember he had a flat with Kelly when Becky lived with them as well – is that over the cabbies?

  7. Michigander Fan says:

    RE: Junior Mason and PC Babe-arella:

    A 1-night stand after a night of drinking? What is this, 1978? Are we looking for Mr. Goodbar? Have they not heard of STDs in the UK?

    However, I have to admit liking the Masons (as in: they are interesting) more than the Mortons.


  8. debbie1975 says:

    Perhaps they have already heard of condoms, birth control and consenting adults.

  9. Modge says:

    debbie1975: The consenting adults (and not-so-adults) on Coronation Street apparently live in a vacuum in which birth control does not exist, apart from those who believe that “termination” is a form of birth control.

  10. debbie1975 says:

    Ok… that’s not extreme at all.

  11. Michigander Fan says:


    Well, I don’t know that I’d say that. In my (admittedly short) viewership, most of the women who have ended up pregnant have had the baby. The one exception that I can think of is Rosie, when Sally made her take the RU486 (or whatever it’s called over there).

    Maybe I’m stodgy about 1 nighters. I’ve just seen too many nightmares from them to ever consider them a good idea. (Including a friend in college who was stalked by a guy. It was ugly.)

    Also, in this case, just 2 days ago she wouln’t even give him the time of day. It just seemed… incongruous to me.

    Just my 2 cents.


  12. Modge says:

    I seem to have hit a few nerves with my previous comment. My first point was that, judging from the number of children conceived out of wedlock on the street (Amy, David, Amber and the rest of Dev’s seven or however many it was; Ryan (or was it Alex?), and several more, going back generations, birth control is not and has not been shall we say, rigorously practiced on the Street. And was it only last week that Maria and Liam played “do we have it, do we not”, Maria for the second time. She appears to be one of those repeat user of retro-active birth control to which I referred.
    I apologize if I offended anybody, that was not my intention.

  13. debbie1975 says:

    Just to be clear, Rosie was never pregnant. In fact, Rosie and Craig always used condoms and were adamant about that. Her mother forced her to take that pill because she totally over reacted and went a little crazy.

    Also, if I remember correctly, Rosie inquired about getting on the pill when talking to her DR. He refused telling her that she needs to speak to her parents since she is a minor.

  14. mayfairgirl says:

    on another note: becks looks good to me in any picture.

  15. debbie1975 says:

    I can see what your saying, Modge. Mind you married parents are not necessarily stable, planned or good parents.

  16. missusmac says:

    OMG! Sally went a little crazy? Never!

    Yeah, Sally went right round the twist on that one, even though Craig and Rosie sounded much more mature and responsible than most anyone I’d seen on the street for a while. I quite liked Craig.

    Switched at birth, huh? Well, I guess that could be good. Til Richard Hillman I never thought how engrossing a serial killer storyline would be, so maybe this…

    Oh, who am I freakin’ kidding?!?! It’s gonna suck. Wish I could care about Michelle, but I really don’t. Or Ryan.

  17. Glacia says:

    Ryan wasn’t born out of wedlock. Michelle was married to Dean.

    He’s a little bastard in other ways.

  18. Glacia says:

    Actually, it does seem like me too that a lot of folks on corrie are a little dopey when it comes to birth control. I don’t think it’s a matter of kids in or out of wedlock but rather an unexpected or unplanned pregnancy.

    Of course this is a soap and pregnancies are a nifty plot device but it does seem ridiculous to me when Violet (with Jamie) and Maria ‘accidently’ become pregnant. Oh no, how did THAT happen?

    Not being judgemental, but it does seem like there’s a lot more ‘accidents’ than seem possible if people are using birth control.

    Methinks a little bit of carelessness.

  19. geenee says:

    Too many nights getting bladdered!

    Someone please cut Michelle off coffee and give her a vallium; it’s going to be a long haul!

    The mention of Katy makes me cringe at the thought of Michelle having taken the same acting lessons. And the writers must be U.S. soap fans.

  20. missusmac says:

    The flat the Masons are in is the updated former flat of Sarah and Todd. Back in the day, it had red plaid curtains. Now it has the kind of wallpaper R’Tracy and Charlie would have picked. Was it also the flat of the marijuana grower/dog owner who David used to get pocket money from?

    Lloyd is living in another flat that Steve used to live in with Vicram; that Lloyd also used to live in with Kelly and then Becky moved in; that I think Maria used to live in with Bev or Liz (was I drunk?); and was also once occupied by Craig and his dad Tommy.

    Are Jamie and Violet in Steve/Karen and Michelle/Ryan’s old apartment?

  21. Mandy says:

    Unfortunately, it’s not just in Coronation Street where people are lax with birth control. Almost my entire graduating class (read: I’m 21 years old) have gotten pregnant or knocked some girl up, for the guys’ side of things.

    But I have a lot of respect for people who do end up having an unplanned pregnancy and go through with it and become better people by it. More power to them!

    What I don’t get is how people can make the same mistake twice and have more than one unplanned pregnancy! Learn from your mistakes people! I hope I’m not offending anyone with this but that’s just my two cents.
