Episode Summary

EDIT
When she learns that Uncle George wants to marry a young waitress, Aunt Agatha is horrified, and schemes to have Bertie pay the young woman off in order to get rid of her. Jeeves, however, has a different plan, and invites the girl and her aunt over for tea. This ends one engagement, but reunites Uncle George with his long lost love: the aunt, who used to be a barmaid. In order to escape the wrath of Aunt Agatha, Bertie flees to Twing Hall, and engages in some betting on the local sports day, contrary to the express wishes of Lady Wickhammersley. He and his pal, Bingo Little, seem to have an inside track, but the local odds-man rigs the races, and it's up to Jeeves to save the day.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • For those of you who weren't counting, the bet that Jeeves placed on the elderly men's 100 yard dash earned the Syndicate £1500 (£100 placed on a 15-1 candidate).

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Jeeves: Yes, Sir. The expression is one which I would of course not have employed myself, Sir, but I confess to thinking his lordship ill-advised. One must remember that it is not unusual to find gentleman of a certain age yielding to a sentimental urge. The phenomenon is particularly noticeable, I am given to understand, in the United States of America, amongst the wealthier inhabitants of the city of Pittsburgh. It's notorious. I'm told that sooner or later, unless restrained, they always endeavor to marry a chorus girl. The high turnover rate of chorus girls in the state of Pennsylvania has been a matter of comment for some time in the public prints.
        Wooster: You finished, Jeeves?
        Jeeves: Thank you, Sir, yes.

      • Bertie: I just think you're going to find it dashed embarrassing offering this girl money.
        Aunt Agatha: I'm not proposing to do any such thing. You will undertake the negotiations.

    • NOTES (4)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Bertie: You know what Kipling said: the F of the S is more D than the M.

        Bertie is referring to Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936), who was a prolific writer, penning novels, short stories and poems. Kipling was popular in the early 20th century. The line that Bertie is shortening is from The Female of the Species (1911), and the full line is "the female of the species is more deadly than the male."

      • The song that Bertie sings is Good Night, Vienna, the title song from the 1932 movie of the same name, starring Jack Buchanan.
