(Corrie Standard Time: April 26, 2010)
Tyrone is packing Molly’s carry-on bag and she’s already making good on her promise to Kevin that she’s taking Ty and the baybeh away from Weatherfield so she’s putting a bug in Ty’s ear about moving away to Chester for a fresh start.
She does get a good line about the British habit of bringing grapes to hospital patients:
“Contrary to popular opinion, not everyone gets a insatiable craving for grapes the minute they hit NHS sheets.”
When they get home, she tells Ty that their house still feels like Jack and Vera’s, right down to the stone cladding that they never could get rid of. Ty tells her that’ll change eventually and besides, he doesn’t have a good job to go to like last time.
At the garage, Kevin notices Tyrone is day dreaming and Ty tells him about the plan to move to Chester. Not so surprisingly, Kevin encourages him.
Back home, Molly has hobbled around the kitchen enough to throw together some curly fries (“They’re just like little shock absorbers!”) and fish fingers. Ty is confused by Kevin’s encouragement in regards to the move. He thinks Kevin wants to get rid of him so Molly seizes this and tells him that the only thing they need is each other and a garden.
So Audrey decided to take a peak at Lewis’s black book, which he left at the salon last week. She looks at some of the entries, including one client whose politics are described as “hang ’em and flog ’em”.
Then she sees her own entry and is described as an average tipper. So her man-whore comes over and she confronts him about her entry. She tells him that she wants to bring their business relationship to an end and starts to cry, thinking that she’s felt awful about thinking she was anything but a client. Then he goes and kisses her and shows that they may have been all business before but now he’s all business about getting into her business.
Mary may be a whack job but there is nothing I’m loving more than Norris/Mary dialogue.
As Norris complains about the misplacement of Nuts magazine (they love to reference that magazine on this show), Rita is teasing Norris about his romantic getaway to Bronte country. Norris thinks she allows her emotions to run away with her.
As they prepare to leave, Mary assures Norris that should they hear the call of nature, relief is just a rest-stop away. She talks romantically about what Buzz Aldrin called “magnificent desolation” only he was talking about the moon and not West Yorkshire.
“About as much to do,” Norris mutters.
Then, they board Mary’s ginormous RV as she puts on some thematically appropriate music. The radio gives us the dulcet tones of the patron saint of road trips everywhere: St. Kate of Bush. Even the vampires on “Being Human” think so:
When they get to their destination, Mary makes Norris a toad in the hole with chorizo that she calls “Toad in the H’Olé!” She says her toad in the hole has been enjoyed in many places.
In other news:
Natasha is throwing herself at Nick. This will not end well.
Sophie got a part time job at Dev’s (who is finalizing the purchase of Maria’s house) so she can earn her own money and, oh yeah, take the train to Southport more often to see Sian who is totally her girlfriend now.
