* BecauseImJonesy: In season 1 episode 5, "Brinkley Manor," Jeeves is away and Bertie is forced to take care of himself. While he is struggling to make tea, Barmy Fotheringay-Phipps arrives for a visit. When the phone rings, Bertie asks Barmy to answer it and pretend he is Jeeves. -->'''Barmy:''' Mr. Wooster's residence. ''[pause]'' Where is Mr. Wooster? He's not at home, sir. I'm Jeeves. ''[pause]'' What do you mean 'you think not?' ''[pause]'' Oh! ''[He hangs up.]''\\ '''Bertie:''' Who was it?\\ '''Barmy:''' Jeeves! ** Used later on a BrickJoke. In an earlier episode, Bertie had pretended to be a writer of romance novels under the pseudonym "Rosie M. Banks" in order to help one of his friends convince his uncle to approve of an engagement to a woman of lower social station. It doesn't work the first time, but in the fourth season, when his friend has fallen for another woman of lower social station, it proves to be helpful and after some initial reluctance the uncle is willing to support the marriage. [[spoiler: That is, until it's revealed that the woman Bertie's friend married actually IS Rosie M. Banks, and she's quite indignant that someone has been impersonating her, and insulted that the uncle doesn't believe her.]]

* LoveFreak: Madeline BassettBassett. * LoveInformant: In the first episode, Bertie Wooster attempts to play this role for his friend Bingo Little, who is infatuated with Honoria Glossop, but Honoria instead gets the impression that he's speaking on his own behalf, and spends the rest of the series convinced that Bertie is pining for her.

The plots tend to be quite similar - a friend of Bertie's is in love but they lack the courage to propose/their family doesn't approve of the match/they've forgotten the girl's name and address, and they require Bertie to propose in their stead/pretend to be engaged to their fiancee/pose as a burglar to make them look heroic when they foil him; this will go wrong and Bertie will get unwillingly engaged to someone, or be caught stealing something, or both. At the last minute everything will turn out all right and Jeeves will explain how he solved everything. Grateful at being saved from the altar or prison (or both) once again, Bertie will give permission for Jeeves to book the cruise he's been angling for, or destroy the hat of Bertie's he dislikes; inevitably, Jeeves [[TheChessmaster has already done so]].

* AttractiveBentGender: In the last season, Jeeves has to dress as a female novelist. Bertie finds his feminine appearance rather amusing, but Stilton Cheesewright finds him more attractive than his ex-fiancee. (Just to remind you, Jeeves is played by Creator/StephenFry, [[TheBigGuy who is nearly six-and-a-half feet tall, and does not have what you would call a traditionally feminine build]].)

Moving to appropriate sections
* CriticalResearchFailure: One is committed by Tuppy: he has a scheme to sell the [[{{Expy}} Spritz Polecat]], an American automobile, to his fellow fops, but he fails to take into account that people in the United States ''drive on the right side of the road'', and the automobile maker won't even consider making a model for left-side driving unless he'd be selling a thousand cars a week.

* FakeAmerican

* HoYay: Despite their official Heterosexual Life Partners status (see above), Bertie and Jeeves both seem almost ''suspiciously'' determined to make sure Bertie never ends up with whatever woman he's gotten himself engaged to. Early in the show's run Jeeves will explain that he thinks the fiancée is a "bad match" but as the plot kept coming up it was taken for granted that Bertie was simply ''never'' to marry if he and Jeeves can find him a way out of it.

* TheOtherDarrin: Over four seasons, we have had two Gussies, three Madelines, two Agathas, two Barmies, four Dahlias, two Claudes, two Eustaces, and two Bingos, to name a few. ** Reaches MindScrew levels when you realize that the first Madeline ''comes back'' as the ''second Florence.'' Especially bizarre in the last episode where the two characters ''actually share scenes.''
