Notable dialogue

Sally Metcalfe (to Gina Seddon): "You know, I wasted school. I didn't come out with two certificates to rub together. I'm the Mayor of Weatherfield. And I did that on my own, without a leg up or any connections. And I was on cloud nine. And you brought bailiffs to my door - my own sister".


Norris Cole (to Colin Callen): "You're hard-working, you're tenacious, you're go-getting, and your cup is always half-full, whereas mine is half-empty and invariably chipped".
