Storyline

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
