Update for Tuesday July 13th. Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?

Sophie is singing “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?”, much to Rosie’s annoyance. Rosie would prefer to have a post-dump sulk without selections from the hymnal, thank you very much.

Remember when the human who lives inside Rosie made an appearance last week? Yeah, she’s gone underground as she tells Sophie to knock off the Jesus stuff in public.

Meanwhile, the source of Rosie’s sulk is having problems of her own as she fights with her bank to sort out her automated payments. Dev asks for his rent but Michelle promises he’ll have it that week.

At the factory, Rosie has decided to go in, much to the derision of her underlings. She pretends to be mature with Luke but when he leaves and Kelly makes a crack about getting with him now that he’s single, she ends up wearing Rosie’s Half-Calf Skinny Soy Milk Frappuccino.

Luke, for his part, claims there’s nothing going on with him and Michelle but he spends the rest of the episode asking her out, which she accepts.

Sophie gives Rosie a pep talk, telling her that she could have any man she liked. She agrees and marches out to get Luke back, only to find him snogging Michelle, who, after Steve the cheater and Peter the drunk, has found that the only option is to lower her standards even further.

The Mr. Gay Weatherfield Success Party

Jason got a letter, embossed with an official seal, no doubt, from the august Mr. Gay Weatherfield Society. They want him to run the national competition where the money prizes are double and the tasks even gayer. Also, they want him to appear in a calendar as Mr. November. He could win £5000.

Tina is excited by this and suggests a small party to get well bladdered to celebrate.

The word gets around and pretty soon the whole street is making plans to come to the party. At the kebab shop, Theresa notices a glum Darryl, saying “You got a face longer than Celine Dion.” Darryl says he’d like to get back together with Amber and mentions the party. Theresa gets wind of the party, and invites herself along saying “Time to dust off the ol’ boob tube!” Darryl protests that she’s not invited but she claims that she’s merely going to keep Amber’s claws out of Darryl. And because it’s likely that there will be booze there. I love when a party spins out of control hours before it begins.

And This Happened:

Rita accepted Norris’s offer and decided she’s going to treat herself to a round the world cruise. But first, she’s gettin’ drunk.

Kirk has decided to leave his digs with Fizz and Ches, needing to escape the bad vibes round there. And so, like Superman this month, he has decided to find himself and walk the Earth. Or walk next door to his sister’s house. Whichever is closer.

    I am the president of the I-love-Sophie fan club. Everyone should have a sister like her. And in keeping with Sophie’s spirit of
    Christ-ee-annity I will not start a I-hate-Fiz fan club. What a maroon. What a drama queen and so mean to Kirkeh!

    I think Luke needs to take lessons from Tony and Carla on how to keep the staff in line…butting in on private conversations, is a bit much to tolerate.

    Celine Dion walks into a bar; the bartender says, “Hey, what’s with the long face?”

    My husband couldn’t get over how mouthy Kelly, Janice and Sean were to Luke. He is the boss even though he doesn’t look the part. He dresses even worse than Liam did.
    I am not a fan of Rosie but Luke dumping her in the bar in front of co-workers was disgusting. I wonder what Sally will think of that!

    Does any one else think Michelle wears the tackiest of clothing. Talk about mutton dressed as lamb she dresses like a teenager.

    I have a feeling that this party is going to turn out to be a disaster – with people like Teresa inviting herself!

    I like Darryl and Amber together. I really don’t think Amber likes being so far away from home. Not all kids cope that well.

    It seemed far-fetched to me that Luke would tolerate all guff from Kelly, Janice and Sean. Kelly deserved the splash of coffee she got! Luke is not to be trusted IMO and has shown his true colours.

    Where did Michelle’s wages from her successful tour go? Why is she broke and can’t pay the rent?

    Sophie needs subtitles; too bad my TV doesn’t have them. I missed the bit about Celine Dion too and that animated picture of her is creepy!

    I really don’t know what to make of Michelle anymore. Used to be a nice girl,trying to make a home for her son, the sanest of the Connors. Now she’s little Miss OntheRoad, paycheck to paycheck living, and matching ‘wits’ with teenaged witless Rosie over a loser bloke. (I used to be a big Luke fan, not so much now.)

    Kelly is such a wasted character. She’s comic gold, and it would be great to have more scenes with her and Janice.

      I definitely agree about Kelly. I was watching this episode and thinking she really needs a good storyline.

    John, your groovy Christian graphics are hot!
