Jeeves and Wooster - Season 3 - Episode 2

Poet Mr Rockmeteller Todd (Rocky) wants a quiet life in his cabin in the Long Island woods but his Aunt Isobel, who keeps him supplied with money, wants him out clubbing every night and to send her a report of what is going on. Jeeves - who somehow attracts the women of New York like a magnet - goes clubbing in his place and Rocky writes reports from his details. However, he makes it sound so good that the aunt decides to see for herself. Meanwhile, Bicky Bickersteth's father believes Bicky is in Colorado learning farming (if he wants to keep his allowance), but he is staying in New York and his father finds out. Bertie lends Rocky his place to impress his aunt but Bicky's father arrives and also believes Bertie's apartment belongs to his son, and seeing that he is apparently doing well, cuts his allowance off. It is down to Jeeves to save the day.

Meanwhile Bingo marries the waitress, who turns out to be the real Rosie M. Banks, so she and Lord Bittlesham are also after Bertie who decides the best thing is to take the next ship to London. But so do all the others and, confronted by all of them on board, he and Jeeves jump ship. Eight and a half months later, they turn up back in England, with long beards and looking like they have spent much of that time in an open boat and in savage lands.
