    • Eric: (as Lovejoy groans from a head wound) Hey, you know those stitches? I reckon they were put in by a student, because I've seen better needle work on a sunday joint. Lovejoy: Shut up, Eric!

    • (Eric starts barking like a dog as Lovejoy approaches) Lovejoy: Ah, Eric! You lunatic, shut up! What you still doing here?

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) Come on. It's a bronze I'm interested in. It's a lovely piece of work. Catalogue says "Victorian after landscape". Fine enough, except it isn't. Casing is brilliant, though, thin shell, beautiful. It's not often you see a fake better than the original.

    • The auction scene in The Italian Venus was filmed in the Town Hall of Saffron Walden, Essex. The branch of Barclays Bank seen in the episode is in Saffron Walden's Market Place.
