By Jove, there's a great flurry of talk going on. Is there something important happening? If so, this Wooster is willing and able to lend strength, wit, and...thingness to the cause.

Likewise, sir.

[Now a cough that signifies forthcoming awkward questions]

This telephonic device was delivered this morning with a small packet of instructions. I was not anticipating your presence at the other end of the line, as it were. I feel compelled to ask if you are quite safe, sir?

[One eyebrow has raised a precise sixteenth of an inch and the shadow of the apologetic ghost of a frown is lurking around the corner of his mouth. Utter bewilderment, to those who know him well.]

Your friends, I think, remain much as they did when you left them at the Drones Club last evening. It is, if you will pardon my saying so, not outside the realm of possibility that they have in that time entangled thenselves in significant personal trouble. I shall telephone directly, if you like.

May I ask your destination on your impromptu cruise? I shall have your evening jacket forwarded at once.

[He is employed.]

[Apparently by the navy..]

[Nobody has been making his tea.]

[And it is all impossible within the limits of known physics.]

[Jeeves will now quietly and politely, with the utmost discretion, turn a shade of white usually reserved for close and sudden exposure to horseshoe ties or pajamas at dinner.]

If you will pardon me for a moment, sir.

[A few moments later]

A quick perusal of the other missives available on this device has provided some insight as to your situation, sir. It would seem that you have been called to provide guidance for some wayward person in exchange for a reward. While I do advise against exposing a gentleman of your position to employment for any length of time, and also against headgear of that particular shade, your acceptance of this task is quite a noble one, sir.

I regret that I have been absent. I was quite unaware of the situation and must immediately extend my deepest apologies for the oversight.

I feel I may perhaps be sufficiently inured against further upsets, sir.

Perhaps this is a test of sorts that you are meant to undergo alone. [Though the wrinkling of his brow at the practically microscopic level indicates that he disapproves of the very notion]

The poet Edmund Spenser wrote of a set of similarly otherworldly tasks or trials of virtue for a group of knights in his poem The Faerie Queene, although the work has heretofore been considered allegorical-

More in the sense of the trials of Hercules, or the quest for the Grail, if I may. A proof of your valor. I have always personally taken your ancestor's presence at Agincourt as proof enough.

If you should desire to come home, sir, I am certain it could be arranged.

Then perhaps a word with the Admiral and I will do my best to expedite matters? If you can tell me how to contact him.

I see. If you would oblige me by pointing your telephonic device towards the ceiling?

[He clears his throat delicately]

Admiral, I must request that you allow Mister Wooster to leave at any time of his choosing. Should I find that you are holding him against his will at any point I shall have to negotiate with you in person, a process I fear will be quite tedious for us both.

[And there's an expression on his face that he'd never display in front of Bertie, which will be gone as the dew on the leaf as soon as the communicator turns back.]

That will do, sir, thank you. We can only hope that the gentleman will consider my request.

Have I, sir? You're very kind to say so, sir.

Shall I put the kettle on in anticipation of your return to home?

Very good, sir. All shall be ready when you return to the flat. [He displays the tiniest, the most modest of pleased smiles.]

Ho-ho-ho! What would you like for Christmas, little boy?

Well, now, you've been very nice this year.

If you eat all your vegetables and wash behind your ears, I will see to it that you have that tie on Christmas morning.
