While Lovejoy is house-sitting for his cockney friend and fellow antiques dealer Freedy the Phone, the local sheriff dispatches the bailiff, who assumes that Lovejoy is Freddie. As Lovejoy has always lived below the legal radar, he has no paper work to prove that his inventory or car is his, so they are confiscated and sold at auction. Lady Jane, Tink, and Eric worry that their friend seems to accept the situation without a fight. However, when he comes across a piece that is represented as Napoleon's commode from St. Helena, Lovejoy becomes reinvigorated. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Bernard: We've had some real dingbats in here. You've heard about the stuffed wolf, haven't you?
Eric Catchpole: Stuffed wolf?
Bernard: A couple of months ago an old geezer brought this stuffed wolf in with him - about four foot high.
Eric Catchpole: The geezer?
Bernard: No, the wolf. He put it in the corner of his room and the central heating dried it out so much the skin split open, and guess what there was inside?
Tinker Dill: Little Red Riding Hood?
