The Most Exciting Thing to Happen Last Night….
We found out Jerry’s real name.
Seriously, they gave me very, very little to work with last night, pigeons. I think instead of doing these ‘nothing’ shows they should do a special episode featuring little known characters, ‘A Day in the Life of Mr. Wong’ or ‘Fat Brenda’s Fantastic Adventures’.
I am however, duty bound to report on last night’s events and even though doing a report on Deidre’s optometrist’s cat may be more exciting…here you go in glorious technicolor.
Not happy about the price that they’re getting for the house, Claire wants to pull out of the deal. Ashley reminds her that they’ve agreed on a price and that the Websters are their friends so she should just leave it.
Claire realizes that if she can’t get the price she wanted for her house, all other hopes she has for world domination will be dashed. So she kiiiiiiiiiind of ignores Ashley and plays the guilt card with Sally. She tells her that without the extra 5K they could never do the repairs they need to do with the Webster’s house to make it livable…and dangles the threat of withdrawing from the deal over Sally’s head.
Sally takes the bait and tells Kevin that they have to do something or they’ll lose the house. (oh nos!). The Websters go back to the Pecocks with an offer that Bill will do the reno’s for ‘Mate’s Rate’ and they’ll throw in another 2K. Claire hums and haws, but Ashley takes the deal.
Claire is becoming quite the manipulator….she’s almost ‘Shakesperean’ as they say.
Morons ‘R Us
Molly wants the plastic blue and yellow siding off of the house saying that it makes them look like morons. Tyrone is more worried about the memory of Vera and Jack’s feelings and would rather they leave it up. They fret over the situation, but Molly decides to ask Jack how he’d feel about having the siding removed.
Turns out he’d be VERY freakin’ happy without the siding. While it is a reminder of Vera, it’s not such a good reminder.
Harry’s Girl Troubles
Harry asks Liz out for a drink but she turns him down again…..but adds a bit of a wink and a smile as she does it and sashay’s away, hips and ass in full swing. Harry’s been around the block enough times to pick up on these signals.
Meanwhile, his soon-to-be ex, Clarissa shows up. Turns out she’s had her driver’s permit revoked and would like Harry to pay for her transportation between the tanning salon and the ‘Gold Diggers of 2001’ club. Harry tells her to keep dreaming.
This whole scene, btw, was witness by Deidre and Eileen who were minding their own business, standing there, eyes and ears in the general direction of Harry and Clarissa…for 5 minutes. They trip over themselves getting to the Rovers to tell Liz.
In the theory that a marriage ring is an aphrodisiac….Liz accepts Harry’s offer to dinner the next time they run into each other.
In Other News
Leanne wears underwear as a frock to work at the Rovers.
Michelle comes home and Ryan gets a video game. Oh yeah, she’s pissed that Leanne is working at the Rovers. Someone please remind me, what is the beef she has Leanne? Other than Leanne slept with both of her brothers? But wouldn’t that beef be overturned by the fact that one of the Conner brothers tried to KILL Leanne?
Leanne wants to know what an actuary is. About $130K a year, sweetie.
