    • Lovejoy: Take my apprentice, for example. Dandy Jack: Eh! No thanks. Lovejoy: There you are. One would think he could be trusted, with a little job like this. Dandy Jack: Why not, he seems quite capable? Lovejoy: I tell you, I turn my back for a minute, and he would likely run amuck. Dandy Jack: Young Eric? Lovejoy: Take the last time I left. He polished off two bottles of wine, my last Havana cigar, and half a box of After Eights.

    • Jane: I don't believe it. Lovejoy: So little trust. Jane: I throught that you forgot all about it until... Lovejoy: Until the perfect moment. That's what I love about our relationship.

    • Gimbert: Lovejoy, you Scumbag! You own me a spiral staircase.

    • Palmer: Stop thinking English. Be positive.

    • Lovejoy: (To the audience) To amateurs, the antiques business must look very attractive. You go to auctions, hang around junk shops to find something that no one has seen and sell it at a fat profit. What they forget, is the time you put into finding out about the stuff and the care. Got to care.
