About JEEVES And WOOSTER & Episode Guide

Wooster A Young Gentleman & His Valet Jeeves

Jeeves & Wooster Aired From April 22, 1990 - Jun, 20 1993 On ITV

About Jeeves & Wooster
Bertie Wooster is a upper-class gentleman; he has his Club, he has his friends (all of whom have strange nicknames), he has his female friends with whom he tries to avoid romantic entanglements, and most of all, he has his Aunts, who are to be feared. Bertie often gets into tight situations either with his friends, or trying to avoid the females, or avoid the Aunts. Unfortunately, while Bertie is blessed with an upper-class life style, he was set off in life with an average sized helping of brain power... or maybe even less-than-average sized.

This is where Jeeves comes into things; Jeeves is a gentleman's gentleman, the ultimate man-servant. He knows which shoes go with which suit; what to wear to to every event; and what to say in every situation. And while Bertie might be lacking in the brains department, Jeeves is overflowing with them. His keen mental powers are called upon time and again by Bertie to help him out of the current scrape, which Jeeves does with understated aplomb.

Season 4 Episode Guide

Episode 1: Return to New York (May/16/1993)
Once again, Bertie and Jeeves are off to America, and once again, Bertie meets Tuppy Glossop, this time trying to sell a recipe to an American soup company. Meanwhile, Bertie has commissioned a painting of Aunt Agatha from his fiancée, Gwladys (sic) Pendlebury; Gwladys has run over advertising executive Lucius Pym in her car; Pym is now recuperating in Bertie's bedroom; and Aunt Agatha arrives with cousins Claude and Eustace, who have been expelled from Oxford and are shipping out to South Africa, until which time Bertie is expected to keep them out of trouble. Of course, nothing could possibly go wrong.

Episode 2: The Once and Future Ex (May/23/1993)
Bertie's former fiancée Lady Florence Craye arrives in Manhattan, her new fiancé D'Arcy "Stilton" Cheesewright in tow. When Florence throws Stilton over and announces that she will marry Bertie, Bertie is faced with two most unpleasant alternatives: either Stilton will kick his spine up through the top of his head, or--worse--he might actually have to marry Florence. Meanwhile, Lady Florence's father, Lord Worplesdon, is trying to put together a secret deal with prominent businessman J. Chichester Clam, while Worplesdon's niece Zenobia Hopwood wants (against his wishes) to marry Bertie's friend, the playwright George Caffyn.

Episode 3: Bridgeroom Wanted (May/30/1993)
Once again, Bingo is in love with a waitress, and once again, he asks Bertie to impersonate Rosie M. Banks to soften up his uncle, Lord Bittlesham; this time, though, things don't go quite so well.

Episode 4: The Delayed Arrival (Jun/06/1993)
Back in England, Bertie once again finds the Florence Craye-Stilton Cheesewright romance on the verge of destruction, a circumstance for which Stilton blames Bertie's new moustache. Though Stilton very much wants to break Bertie's spine in four places (or five, or perhaps six), he is restrained by the fact that he has drawn Bertie in the Drones Club Darts Sweep, and stands to scoop in a matter of 60 pounds if Bertie wins. Meanwhile, Aunt Dahlia is trying to sell her women's magazine to businessman L.G. Trotter, while Trotter's stepson Percy Gorringe has written a play based on Florence's novel and is trying to get financial backing.

Episode 5: Trouble at Totleigh Towers (Jun/13/1993)
Sir Watkyn Bassett has recently acquired an African tribal totem which Stiffy Byng believes is cursed. Naturally, she turns to Bertie to steal the object and return it to its rightful owner. Meanwhile, the romance between Gussie Fink-Nottle and Madeline Bassett is on the rocks over Madeline's insistence that Gussie become a vegetarian, leaving Bertie in grave danger of having to marry a girl who would begin every morning by putting her hands over his eyes and saying, "Guess Who?"

Episode 6: The Ties that Bind (Jun/20/1993)
Bertie's nightmare has come true: the Ganymede Club book has been stolen. This book, the property of a butlers' and valets' club to which Jeeves belongs, contains information on the foibles of the members' employers--including Bertie. Worse, Bertie learns that this book is to be used to dish the political candidacy of Bertie's friend Kipper Herring, who is now engaged to Lady Florence Craye (but who won't be for long if he loses the election). Worse yet, if Roderick Spode (now the Earl of Sidcup) gives up his title to stand for election, Madeline Bassett (now Spode's fiancée) might conclude that she doesn't want to be Mrs. Spode instead of the Countess of Sidcup. With Florence and Madeline both on the loose, can any man--especially Bertie--be safe?
