    • Title: "Love Among the Ruins"
      There are many different sources the episode title could be alluding to: a Robert Browning poem from 1855, a 1904 Warwick Deeping novel, a 1948 Angela Thirkell novel, a 1953 novella by Evelyn Waugh, to name a few. But probably the one which could be associated most with this episode is the 1975 made-for-TV movie with the same title, starring Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier, about an aging actress who hires an ex-lover as her lawyer. He is still in love with her, although she doesn't know it.
