: : Hi, I'm wondering where the phrase "What's it all about, Bertie?' comes from? Can't seem to find any info elsewhere. Thank you so much for your help!
: I guess it's not what you're looking for, but "What's it all about, Alfie?" is pretty well-known (from the movie, Alfie).
[The same thought had occurred to me. Maybe Bertie's beta to alpha Alfie? -B.]
