    When Harry says 'talking of which', he is referring to work. Johnny just went to work and Harry is wondering why Olivia isn't in the shop working. The expression 'talking of which' keeps the conversation on a topic that was already brought up.

    "Since we are talking about this subject, here is something else related..."
