--> 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. [[CouldSayItBut But better give it a low whistle[...] and miss, I observed something indistinct but apparently feminine bobbing about behind a distant tree.think.]]

** Bertie's one effort at playing the role of TheChessmaster (in ''Right Ho, Jeeves)'' didn't just flop, it [[EpicFail redefined 'catastrophic'.]]

* BreachOfPromiseOfMarriage: One of Jeeves' regular tasks is getting Bertie Wooster out of engagements while avoiding such lawsuits. The TV adaptation, produced after the breach of promise doctrine was abolished, replaces these references with Jeeves simply trying to avoid offence to the parties involved or being under threat of violence rather than legal action.

* 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.

* SophisticatedAsHell: Bertie's narration style fits this, being an interesting combination of witty prose, attempts to quote from the classics and Latin or French phrases with what is essentially BuffySpeak.

* GilliganCut: In "Jeeves and the Song of Songs", after Bertie refuses to sing at a concert:
--> "Once and for all, Aunt Dahlia, nothing will induce me to let out so much as a single note."

--> And so that afternoon I sent a pre-paid wire to Beefy Bingham, offering my services in the cause, and by nightfall the thing was fixed up.

* MasqueradingAsTheUnseen: In one story Bertie tries to pretend he's romance novelist Rosie M. Banks, claiming the Rosie name is a pseudonym. The person he's trying to fool is a fan of Rosie doesn't know what she looks like, allowing the lie to work. Bertie is doing this to help the man's nephew, who wants to get married but needs his uncle's approval. It goes wrong when it turns out [[spoiler:the would-be bride actually is Rosie M. Banks]]. It goes right when this means [[spoiler:the uncle approves of the marriage on the basis of his admiration for Rosie]].
