Jim takes Linda Hassler for dinner at an expensive restaurant, but despite them having a reservation Henri, the owner won’t allow them to sit. Then the Princess Irene Rachevsky and her party arrives, and Henri goes to seat them – but Jim protests, and he is seated, next to the kitchen. Jim sends the Princess a bottle of wine, but Jim’s dining is ruined. Later that evening, the Princess takes her good friend Kendall back to her hotel. As Kendall gets out of the Limousine, someone almost runs her down. The next day the Princess hires Jim to protect Kendall, and invites him to a costume ball that afternoon on Blake Sternlight’s boat. Dressed as a scholar, Jim foils another attempt on Kendall’s life by a mysterious figure dressed as a Friar. Jim takes Kendall home, but first stops at Escobedo’s, Jim favourite eatery, but August Fairfield brings a party of friends, and Jim is forced to eat with them. Next day, Kendall brings a picnic to the trailer, but Jim is investigating the mystery Friar, so Kendall offers to help by taking Jim to the costume shop where guests of the Sternlight party were instructed to go, and discover the identity of the mystery Friar – a local bartender named Richard Soderling. Jim finds Soderling at a drinks conference, and when he spots Jim he runs, ending up on the roof and failing off the roof.
