Update for Tuesday, August 25, 2009 – Nothing a Little Fondue Can’t Cure

fondueFizz is taken into an interview room at the police station where DC Timmins begins asking her about her relationship with John, but pretty soon, it’s clear that they think she either knew about the kidnapping, or helped with it.

Back at the factory, the girls and Sean are discussing what constitutes a crime of passion. Kidnapping is not, Wiki tells them, but pouring hot pig fat on your husband’s member because he made love to your best friend is.

“Anything you want to share with us?” Julie asks.

Curious Things From Wiki’s Past now include:

  • A university degree
  • A possible career as a doctor
  • A son back home (I think)
  • A lesbian affair
  • Mutilating her husband with hot pig fat

Coincidently, applying hot pig fat to a man’s member was also used as a threat in the opening episode of this season’s Mad Men.

Aannnyway, PC Timmins eventually believes Fizz’s story and tells her she can go. Fizz then begins crying about John’s possible fate and Timmins reminds her that kidnapping is a serious charge.

Maria and Lloyd pick her up at the station and take her home. There, Julie tries to cheer her up noting that there’s nothing like a good fondue to cheer her up.

Fizz goes back to talk to John in his cell to try to understand what he was thinking. He tells her that it was just a stupid mistake and he’s the same guy he always was but then says that the last five weeks were the happiest of his life WHICH SHOULD BE A MASSIVE CLUE TO YOU, FIONA BROWN, THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS MAN’S HEAD.

Anyway, Fizz is heartbroken. The best man she ever loved turned out to be pretty messed up.

Underworld Can’t Even Afford MS Office

Sally slips into Tony’s office with a flash drive to get that copy of her Liam/Carla video off Rosie’s hard drive. The PC runs XP but I saw a generic icon on the desktop for “Word Processor”. Things must be worse than I thought at Underworld. They could at least download Open Office. Tony catches her just as she’s finishing up and she tells him she just came for some of Rosie’s things.  As she leaves, Tony checks out her computer but doesn’t see anything amiss (as he was unaware of the copied video).

Meanwhile, Giles, his new accountant tells him that his big debt is resulting in a lot of bank charges going unpaid. Looks like his plans to retire a millionaire have hit a snag unless he can start selling those flats. To remedy the situation, Tony forges Carla’s signature on a cheque to use the payroll account to pay his bank charges. Looks like the gang at Underworld is working for free this week.

If only Tony used the Gail Vaz-Oxlade all-cash jar budget.


In Other News…

In this week’s episode of the ABC After School Special, Daddy, Please Don’t Drink, Peter attempts to dump Simon on Ken and Deirdre and bugger off to Portsmouth. Ken tells him, Oh, like fuck you will. But Peter didn’t drink so much tonight so that’s something.

I just think it’s funny that Peter and Simon have the same name, Biblically speaking.

Janice got community service for the lotto scam.

Rosie shows her family the Carla/Liam video but Kevin advises that everyone just forgot they ever saw it.

Molly, who’s looking HOTT, and Tyrone get ready for their big fancy free meal when they are joined by Auntie Pam. Turns out the whole thing was a ruse to get the restaurant to pay for the meal so Molly and Ty would choose them as the caterers. Molly storms off, embarrassed. And Pam tells them waitress that the weddings off as Ty’s having it off with the girl from the abattoir. So they leave in kind of dine and dash type thing.

I was hoping the dinner would be romantic so we could see the Molly Compton Sex Eyes, which are the hottest thing this side of Joan Holloway on TV right now. It’s hard to describe and it’s a rare thing but you’ll know them when you see them.

These aren’t them:

    Hey, it just dawned on me what the ‘NOT THE SEX EYES’ reminds me of:

    It’s the wee lads poop face.

    Just sayin’…

  2. Bea says:

    I love the way Wiki is so mysterious. She seems like a quiet, unassuming person, but then you hear all these interesting “facts” about her. lol

    Poor little Simon. Just another in a long line of neglected Corrie kids.

  3. haili says:

    Wiki is getting nastier though. All the Underworld employees never have a good word to say about anyone and even suspect Fizz of being involved in the kidnapping. It seems odd to me that last week they were drinking and chatting with Janice and this week are being nasty again. They did get the money back so why are they all so broke?

  4. Gayle says:

    I just love the little boy who plays Simon. The scene between him and Blanche was magic! As much as I am enjoying seeing Peter back again I would like to kick his ass! What a coward thinking of walking out on a little boy who just lost his Mom!

    • Trudy says:

      I agree Gayle – I thought he was great last night. His expression when Blance asked him to spell discombobulation was great.

  5. the pink lady says:

    Gotta love Simon. So cute and he can act miles around the robot Bethany.

    • jeanie says:

      the corn child

    • Modge says:

      I was wondering last night why Amy wasn’t there to play with Simon – then realized that Simon would make Amy look like a stuffed animal. Even Josh seemed a little more quiet than usual. I remember that when Simon was first introduced in the original shows, viewers just raved about him. I now see why.

      Speaking of Amy, we haven’t seen her for ages.
      Not that I’m bothered.

      • the pink lady says:

        Amy’s off having her unibrow waxed this week.

      • Mark says:

        Simon is such a cute little lad. I loved the look he gave Peter yesterday. That was hilarious. Its funny how they make excuses for the children not getting lines, like Blanche calling him “Shymon”.

  6. Diane/tvor says:

    While Rosie has been gone, surely Carla and/or Tony has had to use her computer for access to files or emails. Did they not notice a folder called Rosie’s Insurance? Sally deleted the folder. But it’s still in the recycle bin. Duh.

    • John says:

      I thought I saw Sally move the file right on to the flash drive, thus taking it off the hard drive. If she did delete it, then yeah, duh. Also, Rosie could have password protected it and hid it in a subfolder. But maybe mad PC Skillz are more Sophie’s department.

  7. Mark says:

    I can’t wait to find out more about Wiki’s past. Still waters run deep as they say. I also love Julie, she’s a nutbar!

    As for Sally and her PC skills, I wish John Stape had kidnapped her, she should have some computer skills, after all she is soooooo much better than anyone else on the street. Didn’t she use a computer when she worked for the car dealership (that is before she got fired after having an affair with the boss! Can anyone say traaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamp! Jeeze, my hatred for that woman is getting weird. LOL

  8. haili says:

    I’ve had enough of the Platts for awhile and think Peter has really gone downhill. It would be nice if he could smarten up and be a father to Simon but it doesn’t look good so far.

    It’s time Sally apologized to Fizz.

    Corrie seems to be in a bit of a lull since Rosie got out of the attic.
