Storyline

Mr. Pickwick, Mr. Tupman, Mr. Snodgrass and Mr. Winkle constitute The Corresponding Society of the Pickwick Club. The purpose of the society is to make reports of excursions outside London. At the stage-coach to Rochester they are accompanied by a charming stranger, who they invite for dinner at The Bull Inn, the first stop of the journey. When the others fall asleep after too much wine, Mr. Tupman and the stranger sneak upstairs to a ball. The stranger has no fine clothes and borrows Mr. Winkle's tail-coat. At the ball he insults a Dr. Slammer, who the next day wants to duel with "the man in the blue tail-coat", which happens to be the perplexed Mr. Winkle.
