Storyline

Aunt Dahlia aims to sell her ailing magazine to Scouse parvenu Mr. Trotter but hocks her pearls to afford to pay a famous female novelist to contribute a story to the magazine, to reel in Trotter. Bertie, having been arrested in The Mottled Oyster speakeasy, where he has accompanied Lady Florence Craye to research her new book, is charged to 'steal' the fake pearls which Dahlia has substituted before her husband finds out - which involves his dressing as a thieving housemaid. Jeeves too dons drag to impersonate the great lady novelist, in the process attracting the unwanted attentions of Florence's oafish beau 'Stilton' Cheesewright, though at least it gets him off Bertie's case.

Quotes

Bertie: No. No no no no no. No, seriously and definitely no. I'm prepared to do many things for you, Aunt Dalia. But putting on earrings and a frock and pretending to be an American lady novelist is not among them. Besides, I've got a mustache.
Aunt Dahlia Travers: For a lady novelist, that's a positive asset.
