Dirty, Filthy Money


If it pleases the court, m’lord, I would like to direct your attention to the events on February 9th, 2004. As you’ll recall, this was the night Amy Barlow (nee Patience Cropper) was born. The child’s mother, Tracy Barlow discussed with Steve Macdonald the option of selling his child to the Croppers.

I direct your attention to exhibit A: This YouTube clip:

Please forward to the 3:15 mark.

Steve Macdonald, were your words not “That’s dirty money, Tracy. Dirty, filthy money.”?

And now, in the space of one evening, because your wife threw a tantrum like a three year old who is denied her sweets, you have reversed your position on the buying and selling of children.

No further questions, m’lord.

    No good will come of this! Kylie will keep coming back wanting more money – or Social Services will discover that Becky lied and pretended to be Kylie. Good soap story line though – I hope! Kylie is a lot like Tracy.

    Thanks John. The picture reminded me of how much I used to enjoy Street Legal. They don’t makes shows like that anymore – just reality crap.

      While I agree that Kylie is as despicable as Tracy I don’t think she’s as smart as Tracy.
      Boy, this has disaster written all over it.
      Can’t Steve ever find a woman that doesn’t have a ton of baggage – speaking of baggage, what ever happened to Michelle’s real son?

      haili – actually the photo was from Law and Order UK

      But I miss Street Legal. It was a brilliant show that still holds up after twenty some odd years.

    This is the 3rd time the writers have recycled the child selling story line. Didn’t Terry Duckworth sell little Tommy to his other grandparents?

    • missusmac says:

      Yes, he did. Can I just say, I have four children. Never found a buyer… dang!

      I agree that Kylie is not as smart as Tracy, although she is just as greedy and despicable. Steve must REALLY love Becky, because nothing about this is smart. I’m not always a big Liz fan, but if she was around, this would not be happening. She can still bring Steve into line.

    But John….surely there’s a difference between buying and selling?!
