Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 833
locum, grommet, thaumaturgy, fractious
While certainly giving small metal eyelets their due, let us never forget "The Wrong Trousers", wherein the penguin, acting as a sinister locum tenens for faithful canine Gromit, lures the innocent and unsuspecting thaumaturge Wallace into the robot trousers, which are a trifle difficult to manipulate at the best of times, but downright fractious when worn by a sleeping human and remote-controlled by a penguin wearing a rubber glove on his head.
