      • Lovejoy: (to camera) I am taking a couple of days off. Why the early start? Well, imagine the lip I get from the rest of the firm. Friends do that to you after a while, they crowd you with guilt. Take Tinker and Eric, please. I mean, age notwithstanding, those fellas are like the sons I never had. Eh! I'll dream about that now.

      • Lovejoy: (to camera) Mended, painted and repainted, it's by Lawrence Burke, from the Paris collection, 1898. Trouble is, the family who owns it had a very low flash point. Last Friday, the wife brings down this vase on the husband's head, crunch. Mind you, this is not the first time this has been used as a club. Anyway, I had to finish it.

      • Lovejoy: (to camera) Well, I've sailed close to the wind a few times in my life, never for real, adrift in the North Sea. If I wasn't afraid, I showed her who's boss. Don't worry, I think she knows.

      • Lovejoy: (to camera) Women may let you down, antiques never. (puts vase down) There. All ready to clobber somebody else. By rights, I shouldn't let them have it back, should I? The Philistines have no eye for lasting beauty, they prefer a lovers' tiff, smashing up the odd bit of hard work and falling back into each other's arms.

      • Lovejoy: (to camera) Yesterday, I'd never been on a boat. Today, I want to live on one for the rest of my life, with her.
