Trivia

After Jeeves resigns as Bertie's valet, Bertie says, "We shall meet at Philippi." This is a paraphrase of a quote from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar". Before the Battle of Philippi, Brutus sees a ghost; when he asks its identity, the specter replies, "Thy evil spirit, Brutus: I shall see thee at Philippi." See more »

Quotes

Chuffy: She must have had a wonderful time being engaged to you. What on earth made her except you I wonder?
Bertie: I once consulted a knowledgeable pal. And his theory was that the sight of me hanging around like a loony ship awoke the maternal instinct in woman. There may be something in this.

Jeeves and Wooster Separate
26 August 2016 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

A very substantive and even emotionally moving J&W episode, drawn from the P.G. Wodehouse novel "Thank You, Jeeves." Much is at stake here, as a rift between Wooster and Jeeves develops because of Wooster's trombone playing. Unable to stand the infernal din of Wooster's music, Jeeves leaves his master, who moves to the country and hires a new and entirely inadequate valet named Brinkley. Meanwhile, Wooster's friend Chuffy Chuffnel is in love with American heiress Pauline Stoker and must sell his estate to Pauline's millionaire father in order to have enough money to marry her. Chuffy becomes suspicious when he finds out that Wooster was formerly engaged to Miss Stoker. And with Jeeves now free, Chuffy snaps him up as his new valet...

The Wodehouseian complications pile up, culminating in a house fire. The episode ends with a beautiful scene the morning after the fire, in which Jeeves comes and restores order. One of the least commented upon aspects of J&W was the subtle Christian symbolism that was often present. As Jeeves makes a rustic breakfast for Wooster in a meadow (to the strains of a Vaughan-Williams-like version of the J&W theme), we have a Creation, a Resurrection, a priestly liturgy. Amazing!

In short, an essential J&W episode, more dramatic and emotionally fraught than most, in which the relationship of our beloved duo is put on the line.
