Update for Tuesday, September 1, 2009 – Don’t Mess with the Windarses


We open with David pulling out of the house and past a young ginger guy as he jumps into Joe’s van.

“Move!” he yells at Joe, showing him the £7000 he was owed (because everyone keeps cash like that lying around). Joe sees the ginger guy coming out of the house with a menacing look on his face and they high tail it out of there.

Back in Weatherfield, Joe tells David that he was stupid to bully that money out of the Windarses as word will get round what kind of workers they are. David tells him that he didn’t want him to go broke and that he’s good for his mum. Joe hands David some of the cash and tells him to go have a night out with Tina.

Afterward, David is recounting, with some embellishment, his tale to Graeme. Meanwhile, Graeme has an elaborate plan for falling in love with local supermodel Agness Deyn involving doing free gardening for her mum.

This is Agness, posing with food she has no intention of eating:

agnyessdeyn Anyway, David gets round to mentioning the name of the cheapskates: Windass. Graeme goes white.

“They’re bad banditos, senor!”

He explains that while Eddie, the dad with the phony disability, wasn’t so bad, it was his son Gary and Uncle Len that are the bad ‘uns.

And bad ‘uns they are as Gary and Len are driving around town looking for David, even though Len gives Gary a hard time when he learns that the guy who terrorized him was a teenager.

Anyway, they see Joe, who is busy offering Gail a trip on the Cornish Riviera. So much for that £7000 being all accounted for. They hold back on doing anything, reckoning there are too many witnesses.

“He’s laughing now but he won’t have much to laugh about when we’ve finish with him,” Len says, adding, “Because in that, I’m implying the threat of violence, possibly to the point of murder, but without explicitly stating my intentions. The point is that what I have planned for him will be sufficient to spoil his good spirits.”

In Other News

Peter has purchased the bookies and is moving into the flat upstairs with Simon. Leanne joins them for fish and chips  but tactfully leaves when Peter puts Simon to bed.

Leanne sold a flat, finally.

Dan Mason mad a classy exit when he dumped Kelly, accusing her of being a freeloader, and then took off on vacation promising never to come back. As he left, Kelly threw her white boot at the car.

The reason Kelly is a freeloader is because Tony didn’t give her the $150 he promised so she couldn’t pay the last installment on her vacation, as well just not paying his workers.

Dev finally convinces Prem to let him see Amber Tara but Prem agrees to make sure Nina doesn’t mention the affair to Amber Tara.

Darryl gets on Dev’s good side by asking for help with the kebab shop. This puts him in good enough spirits to give Darryl and Amber some cash for a night at the movies. He then calls Jerry in Spain to make an offer. And there was much rejoicing for Amber and Darryl.

    Graeme is delightful.

    Gail is an idiot, offering to break up with Joe, so as not to offend Darling David.

    And yes, Prem’s ears are gigantic!

  2. haili says:

    Why did Leanne pour Peter a drink and then leave?

    It looks like Dev wants to buy the kabob shop. Maybe he will employ Darryl.

    I wonder if Dan has gone for good. The flat looked fully furnished and decorated. That was quick!

  3. Debbie says:

    Leanne did pour Peter a LARGE scotch. I guess she doesn’t notice that the dude is always boozing or always smells like booze.

    That Agnes Dean thing was HYSTERICAL! He is funny. So is the picture of her with food she has no intention of eating.

    I loved that scene in Mad Men. That episode was so good I watched the encore.

  4. Piper77 says:

    I’m confused why Dan is selling the bookies? Wasn’t Harry selling it out from underneath him and that’s why Dan needed Leanne’s money? Maybe he’s selling it on Harry’s behalf – but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

  5. I don’t know how those Windass fellows knew where to find David. I thought Joe lived in another neighbourhood.

  6. corrieheart says:

    Good point Piper77. I too thought Dan was trying to raise money to buy the bookies from dad, but now he seems to be acting as a selling agent on behalf of Harry ‘briefs not boxers’ Mason.

    And what’s the deal with Leanne? She certainly doesn’t waste any time. She’s dumped by one bookie and simply takes up with the next one who moves in. What are the odds?

    And what about this Prem? Is that glass of scotch permanently welded to his hand? (He always seems to be holding a glass. Does he even put it down when he’s asleep?)

    So many questions..

    cheers to all

  7. Long time lurker says:

    And to add to the list of questions – didn’t Fizz get some sort of urgent phone call late last week that prompted her to rush to South Africa, despite the fact that that may make her look more guilty in the whole John/Rosie debacle. Did we ever find out what the phone call was about; what was the urgency in South Africa? Did Chesney run out of 100+ spf sun screen? Did I miss something?

    It seemed to me that Leanne’s leaving the glass of scotch for Peter was almost knowingly catering to his very apparent drinking problem. Although I have no idea why she would want to do that.

  8. John says:

    Fizz was let go by the police when they believed that she wasn’t aware of the kidnapping. Her exit to South Africa was written so that she would appear in the DVD special: “Out of Africa” in which she buys a coffee plantation and falls in love with Robert Redford. Ok, no. It was a silly bit of business featuring her, Kirk, Ches, and Cilla filmed on location in South Africa. I imagine we’d find out the urgency when Fizz gets there.

    I don’t think it was broadcast on ITV and was only ever intended as a DVD spin-off. I doubt CBC would ever run it.

    I don’t think Leanne knows Peter has a problem, just that he drinks. I think leaving the glass of whiskey was her way of saying, ‘I’m not stopping so here, have a drink’. I think she just wants to take it slow with him.

    The Dan Mason exit does seem rather hastily written, doesn’t it?

    • Long time lurker says:

      Thanks for that info, John. I can just hear Fizz with her best Karen Blixen accent – “I had a home in Africa…”.

  9. David says:

    I think you’ve gotten Tara and Amber mixed up… (Dev wants Prem’s permission to see Tara, not Amber) but we knew what you meant. 😉

  10. S. Poole says:

    Another question, why did Graham (Graeme?) owe David money last week? Missed the Sunday omnibus when I hoped to see what bit the Ceeb edited out. Love the character Graham (Graeme?), even when they were still in the nick. His accent/delivery reminds me of Danny the drug dealer in Withnail and I. After the big David and Tina find their parents snogging meltdown he innocently breaks an awkward silence with “Cup of tea anyone?”

  11. beanie says:

    I just watched the episode again and I think LeeAnn was just making an exit. Peter was putting Simon to bed and there were nighty-nights all around. I don’t think she meant anything with the booze except goodnight.

    Pretty funny when Dev had a romantic moment with Tara with Barry White playing. Or was it Lou Rawls? Oh well same thing and typical of Dev.

  12. haili says:

    Didn’t Graham try to sell David that car – which is probably stolen – and the money he owes David is a refund? There’s something fishy about that car.

    • S. Poole says:

      Yes, that has to be it, totally forgot the line where David mentioned buying a new car with 300 big ones. Turns out that beautiful Audi TT (the car from Midtown Madness!) belongs to a friend of Graham’s(Graeme’s?) mom…. not sure if they were able to get it back safely or not, could still be sitting in the Platt garage. Waiting for the Windass nastys to steal. 🙂

  13. haili says:

    Why would the young juvenile delinquents want to torch the car when they could just leave it in some parking lot? They are really getting out of hand and I have a feeling Graham won’t be around long.

  14. missusmac says:

    Graham in the butcher shop??? This could get good.

    I did wonder why Kirk wouldn’t have been re-hired by Ashley, but remembered Kirk is in South Africa.

    Sooooo, anyone else missed Claire? There is not even an offscreen reference to her! She’s been redecorating that house for six months.

    • S. Poole says:

      Really good.

      And how do we clean the knife? LICK IT!!

      He is hilarious.

      By the way, real happy the Sr Connors are back from Ireland so soon. Not!
