    • Lovejoy: (Voiceover) From the dawn of Creation, love, the greatest of all human emotions, has been expressed in many forms; in paintings, in books, in music, but rarely in a rug. Yet for centuries the Muslim maidens of North Africa have done that, forbidden to speak to their beloved, their passions take on a secret form. The code of love-knots woven into their carpets, secrets only a soothsayer can reveal. What, may you ask, has all this got to do with Lovejoy?

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) What do you think the truth is? Is it a scam for drugs or arms, where Uncle Said plays Sidney Greenstreet? Or is there, as the lady said, still such a thing as romance? And are there fairies at the bottom of my garden?

    • Lovejoy: No soul, no romance, gentleman scholar, just a pedlar. Said: Just like you, my friend.

    • Said: What about the second, the military gentleman? Lovejoy: Major Dill...Major is quite a scholar. Said: He saw something? Lovejoy: He must have done to pay that price for an original Burman rug.
