Episode Summary

Out To Lunch

Lovejoy is spending more and more time with Victoria, not so much on his business. Together with Jane and Alexander, he and Victoria go away for the weekend at a friend's cottage. Meanwhile, Lovejoy buys some drawings for a song and sells them to an art gallery for a good profit. He is shaken when the pictures are denounced as fakes - even the artist says they are not his, but Lovejoy is sure they are. What is going on?

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Lovejoy: (to camera) Freddie the phone, my absentee landlord, called from Spain. Asked would I house-sit for the rest of the year, business premises included?

      • Tinker: I was in the army with a bloke who tried to top himself.
        Eric: How did he do it?
        Tinker: Well after a great deal of thought, he settled on hanging.
        Eric: Hanging?
        Tinker: He found a tree on top of a cliff with a branch that stretched out above the sea.
        Eric: Spectacular.
        Tinker: To save himself pain, he took an overdose of pills.
        Eric:Wasn't leaving anything to chance, was he?
        Tinker: Just to make trebly sure, he decided to shoot himself.
        Eric: What happened?
        Tinker: Well, he slipped the noose around his neck, cocked the pistol and swallowed the pills and stepped over the cliff.
        Eric: And?
        Tinker: Well, the jerk of the rope ruined his aim, the bullet missed his head and cut the rope in half, and he fell like a stone into the sea and swallowed so much salt water that he vomited the pills and swam back to shore a better and wiser man. Last I heard he's growing chrysanthemums in Cornwall.

      • Victoria: You're the expert, it says eighty to a hundred pounds. Surely it can't be worth that much?
        Lovejoy: The price is what the figure is sold at, the value is how much it's worth to the owner. Often the two have nothing to do with each other.

      • Jane: Ah, it's Monday morning.
        Lovejoy: Straight after Sunday. Gosh, life's predictable, Janey.

      • Eric: I shall move on to item three on the agenda, financial planning. Now, I've contacted the bank.
        Lovejoy: What?
        Eric: I've contacted the bank.
        Lovejoy: You don't contact the bank, they contact us, if they can find us.

      • Eric:Now, by rights we should start with the company secretary, that's me, Mr E. Catchpole, reading the minutes from the last meeting.
        Lovejoy: What's stopping you?
        Eric:There are no minutes, in fact there was no last meeting, in fact there was no meeting at all.
