* TheWickedStage: Several stories deal with some acquaintance or other falling in love with a chorus girl, and the resulting familial disapproval. [[note]] A chorus girl was essentially a professional MsFanservice, and while the stage was becoming respectable at the time of the stories, a chorus girl wasn't many notches above a prostitute. A modern equivalent might be someone declaring they're marrying a stripper. [[/note]]

* FirstWorldProblems: A shining example,[[TropesAreNotBad in a very good way]]. The inhabitants of the Jeeves and Wooster universe are hugely rich without having to work for it, and nobody is ever in serious danger. Even relationship troubles are strictly angst-free.

Arthur Treacher was well-known as the embodiment of Jeeves in a series of films in the 1930s, with DavidNiven taking the part of Bertie Wooster. In the Sixties, Ian Carmichael (better known for playing LordPeterWimsey) as Bertie and Dennis Price as Jeeves appeared in the TV series ''The World of Wooster''. (It is on record that Wodehouse did not care much for any of these adaptations.)

* FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent: Bertie is fundamentally incapable of turning really nasty, and definitely believes that blood is ThickerThanWater, but the appearance of once of his aunts can drive him to, by his standards, desperate measures.

* TheAlcoholic: Bertie's Uncle George.
-->I donít know if youíve ever met my Uncle George. Heís a festive old egg who wanders from club to club continually having a couple with other festive old eggs. When he heaves in sight, waiters brace themselves up and the wine-steward toys with his corkscrew. It was my Uncle George who discovered that alcohol was a food well in advance of modern medical thought.

--> I was just wondering whether it would be any use my putting in a soothing word, and feeling on the whole perhaps not, when there came to my ears a low whistle[...] and I observed something indistinct but apparently feminine bobbing about behind a distant tree.

--> I was just wondering never know, when I'm telling a story, whether it to cut the thing down to plain facts or whether to drool on and shove in a lot of atmosphere and all that. I mean, many a cove would be any use my putting no doubt edge into the final spasm of this narrative with a long description of [the big horse race], featuring the blue sky, the rolling prospect, the joyous crowds of pickpockets, and the parties of the second part who were having the pockets picked, and - in a soothing word, and feeling on the whole perhaps not, when there came to my ears what not.
