EDIT
Safety in New York
AIRED:
Jeeves and Wooster set sail for New York, hoping for a quiet getaway from Bertie's tyrannical Aunt Agatha. But Bertie can't evade responsibility that easily, and he soon finds himself charged with the exasperating task of looking after a sheltered mother's boy and giving him his first taste of big city life. Tuppy Glossop ventures to New York, as well, to embark on a business scheme of not-so-grand proportions.moreless

  • I think that apart from the great adaptation of the unique universe of the Wodehouse novels, these series are filled with excellent interiors, exteriors, costumes, cars and props. I absolutely love it, and in this episode it is top notch.moreless

    This episode starts with Jeeves and Wooster escaping to New York, running away from aunts and fiancees back in Blighty. On the boat, in the Wodehouse manner, their past is catching up with them as Bertie is made responsible for taking care of the teetotaler son of a friend of his aunt Agatha. Or else - Aunt Agatha and all the girls he has dreadfully wronged will get to know Berties whereabouts, the mother threatens him.



    This sets of the plot, witch is thickening when they arrive in New York and the teetotaler son suddenly decides to take up drinking. Bertie decides to escape to the countryside, leaving poor Jeeves with the drunken son, partying like there is no tomorrow.



    But, as always Bertram Wilberforce is punished for his escapism and the countryside is far more noisy and uncomfortable than the penthouse apartment in the city. Anyway, back in the flat Jeeves cant take it anymore and give up the drunken son to the police, given the Prohibition in the US. After a lot of twists and turns, the mother and son are reunited and Jeeves and Wooster are happily together in the New York flat.



    I think that apart from the great adaptation of the unique universe of the Wodehouse novels, these series are filled with excellent interiors, exteriors, costumes, cars and props. I absolutely love it, and in this episode it is top notch.moreless

    • Wooster: Hat, then.
      Jeeves: Very good, sir.
      Wooster: No, Jeeves, my American hat.
      Jeeves: (as if pained) Very good, sir. (Jeeves fetches Bertie's white fedora)
      Wooster: There, doesn't look at all bad, does it?
      Jeeves: A violin case would complete the effect very creditably, sir.
      Wooster: All right, Jeeves, we shall say nothing about it. I think the hat looks fairly doggy. You are not convinced of its dogginess. We will agree to differ.

    • Wooster: You, uh, eat something last night that disagreed with you?
      Wilmot: No, nothing of the kind. I drank too much. Much too much. Lots too much. And what's more, I'm going to do it again. I'm going to do it every night.

    • Wooster: Now Jeeves, why do you think they built all these tall buildings?
      Jeeves: Well, sir, it was partly due to the restricted size of Manhattan island and partly because the island is solid granite and therefore capable of supporting such structures.
      Wooster: Nothing to do with having got planned sideways, then?
      Jeeves: No, sir.
      Wooster: That's what Barmy told me.
