Episode Summary

Friends in High Places
As the third series begins, Lovejoy returns to Felsham after a long break in Spain, where he was trying (without marked success) to learn to paint. He quickly seeks out Tinker (who has joined a monastery), Jane, who has a new look, and Eric, now working as a security guard.

Victoria Cavero, an old friend of Jane's, comes to stay, and Lovejoy loses no time in falling for her. Victoria wants to sell a South American gold ring, and the ring sets in motion strange events for Lovejoy and Jane, including safecracking, kidnapping, polo and betrayal.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) Well, I've been back for two days, and I'm drinking Pimm's with the Polo set!

    • Fred: Goodbye, Myrtle.
      Tinker & Lovejoy: Myrtle?!

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) Three hundred thousand dollars, if you remember? But pay a few debts off, put down a down payment on your daughter's first flat, give yourself a brief change of scenery, and bingo, it's gone, well, almost gone. This is what I miss (nods to the market place). Gave up the game for a while, went to live in Spain, to see if I can remember how to paint. (someone calls out) Hi, how are you? (to camera) They're not fakes, the real things. To see if I could. I can't. I mean, who wants a Lovejoy, when you can have an Utrillo? A fake Utrillo. Perhaps I have returned a better and wiser man? Who knows? Anyway, I'm back, and it's time to renew old friendships.

    • Eric: I'm not saying I'm coming back, that way lies madness. I will come in to file your stuff for you on the evenings, for old time's sake, and do the odd weekend job.
      Lovejoy: Your choice, Eric. Can't say I'm not disappointed, I've had my mid-life crisis, Tinker has done his penance.
      Tinker: Amen to that.
      Lovejoy: For us, it's business as usual.

    • Lovejoy: Aren't half the art collections of the world built on someone at some time thieving something from somebody else? People even die for it.
      Alfredo: That's either a very sophisticated or a very cynical view. Not knowing you as a person, Mr Lovejoy, I cannot be sure which.

    • Lovejoy: Janey, it's Friday night, I've just got back into the country, I'm in a new house, I haven't even got a Rottweiler. Why don't you just stick it back in your safe?
      Jane: What if someone breaks in?
      Lovejoy: No one's going to break in here. Everyone in the county knows that Alexander has this place wired up like Fort Knox.

    • Lovejoy: Be reasonable, you were in New York with Alexander.
      Jane: Reasonable? I get more reason from a horse.

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) Came home to this, I'm not even married to the woman.
