But when Emsworth mistakenly steals Peters' most valuable beetle and puts it in his pocket, a passive-aggressive confrontation develops.Peters has suspicions about the other guy, but he is hesitant to approach him out of concern for their children's relationship. As an alternative, he posts a prize for its return, encouraging a gang of greedy thieves to take the beetle for themselves.
