Jeeves Weevil




Bagges house

This transcript is

  • (The episode begins with the Bagges driving down a road when suddenly a human-sized insect flies across the road and is hit on the windscreen leaving a trail of green blood)
  • (Courage screams; Muriel looks horrified)
  • (The insect is thrown to the side of the road as the truck keeps driving)
  • Muriel: I think you hit something! Or someone. (Courage is still horrified)
  • The truck does a U-turn and Eustace pulls to a halt. Muriel exits with Courage, frightened, beside the vehicle. Muriel goes towards the bug
  • Muriel: Oh my! (Courage comes running to her)
  • Weevil: (Recovering) Hello! (Muriel and Courage recoil in horror)
  • Muriel: Are you ok? (Courage continues shuddering)
  • Weevil: But for the fractured thorax, the ruptured rostrum, and the threaded forewing, not to mention swelling in most of my ankles, I'm fine.
  • Muriel: We better take you home and make sure you're ok. (gestures towards the house) We live just up the road!
  • Eustace: (Leans out from the window): Muriel? Muriel! Get your food-making mitts back into this truck and let's go home!
  • Muriel: I was just going to make dinner. Why don't you join us?
  • Weevil: I don't want to impose...although I am feeling a tad peaked.
  • (Cuts to the Bagges' house at their dining table, everybody is seated)
  • Weevil: I'm a weevil, actually. A Jeeves weevil. (Muriel rises)
  • Muriel: (plate in hand, she walks away) I've never heard of the Jeeves weevil.
  • Jeeves Weevil: Commonly known as the Butler bug, madam. We live to serve (eyelids shut and he bows forward)
  • (Courage growls suspiciously. Muriel returns to the table carrying food and the weevil rises)
  • Jeeves Weevil: (walks to Muriel) Allow me!
  • (Muriel pauses; the bug takes the plates from her and places them on the table. She walks off and the bug follows. Muriel sits and the bug tucks her chair in)
  • Muriel: Oh gracious me! Thanks! I'm not used to such treatment.
  • Jeeves Weevil: My dear lady, you should be pimped, plumped and pampered daily!
  • Muriel: Oh, oh my! (she giggles)
  • Eustace: Blah blah blah! Whoever's serving pie, serve pie!
  • (Jeeves is serving the food that Muriel brought, which consists of a tray of pie and a watermelon
  • Jeeves Weevil: A hardworking gentleman such as yourself deserves the biggest piece of pie!
  • Eustace: Blah blah That's right! Bug's got a good head for his...whatever he's got there under his head!
  • (Jeeves Weevil serves Courage some pie, then pats the dog's head as Courage looks on still horrified. The weevil walks off, Courage moans in fear)
  • Muriel: Mr Weevil, would you like some watermelon with your pie? (Weevil sits next to Muriel as she cuts a slice of watermelon and hands it to him)
  • Jeeves Weevil: Watermelon? Thank you! Yes...
  • The weevil's proboscis suddenly shoots out on the watermelon, which was cut, and sucks it up. The camera shows the Bagges staring horrified at the insect)
  • Jeeves Weevil: Oh goodness me! I must've been hungrier than I thought...
  • (Cuts to Muriel washing at the sink as she hums a tune, then we see the weevil massaging Eustace on the sofa)
  • Eustace: (makes sounds of happiness. Courage is watching them from behind on the stairs. The weevil suddenly leans forward and sucks. Courage's eyes bulge out in terror and he shakes. Finally the weevil backs away from Eustace and his proboscis retracts)
  • Eustace: I haven't felt this relaxed in years...
  • (Camera pulls back to show Eustace skinny)
  • Jeeves Weevil: A hardworking gentleman such as yourself needn't suffer the slings and darrows of aches and pains!
  • Eustace: You are right, but...I could use a nap! (he starts yawning) Yeah, ooh! Relaxed.
  • (Eustace rises but all his clothes fall off and he is left clutching his underpants. He starts for the stairs and the weevil picks up his clothes)
  • (Courage is shaking as Eustace goes upstairs.)
  • Eustace: Stupid dog!
  • (The Jeeves weevil stops at Courage before he goes upstairs)
  • Jeeves Weevil: I'll take in his trousers. I do say I'm quite nimble with a thimble. I studied at the Tailoring Academy of Stitch-on-Time. (laughs and goes up)
