Episode Summary

EDIT
To Sleep No More
AIRED:

Sam Wendell, an old forger, dies of a heart attack while being pursued by a mysterious priest, leaving behind one of his small forgeries. Sam had told his wife it was the key to a fortune, and the priest soon tries to break into the Wendell house. Lovejoy aims to unravel the puzzle, by way of helping Sam's widow (who's left with very little) to recover anything of value. Along the way, Lovejoy dresses up as a priest.

      • Lovejoy: Ruin my fifty! That's people in the antique game for you; warm, decent, sentimental and soft-hearted as a cricket ball. Whatever Sam wanted to tell me I thought I never know, but I was wrong, even in death he manage to drag me into a nasty hassle. Put it another way, the usual tale of lust, greed and treachery in our distinguished trade.

        Hamlet: To be, or not to be, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep - no more. And by a sleep to say we end the heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub. Or in that sleep of death, what dreams may come, when we have shuffled off this mortal coil...
