    • Lovejoy: No grub, no girls, no gossip and I volunteered.

    • Alexander: Money? I assume that must be your friend Lovejoy. Jane: The poor dear is in some desperate mess. Alexander: Do you know, I think it would be less trouble and a lot less expensive if we adopted him. He can have his own room, clean the horse brasses.
