The partners check out a fertility clinic in the first episode, while Allen brings Marcus to his reunion in the second episode. Read on for more details about this back-to-back airing, including a short recap from last week.
Previously in the episode “Jurist Prudence,” Allen (Kelsey Grammer) squared with an old nemesis on a corporate case in court. Not wanting to be defeated, Allen made the necessary preparations with choosing the jury carefully. However, one of the members of the jury happened to be the woman Marcus (Martin Lawrence) was dating, and it looked like he was falling really hard for Prudence.
Hounded by his conscience and perhaps seeing how his friend was happy with his new love, Allen had to tell the judge that Prudence was unfit for jury duty. This pleased Marcus, no less, but then she still broke it off with Marcus, as she wasn’t ready to be in a serious relationship with him.
In the episode that followed, “Paralegal Activity,” the partners take on the case of a couple who blamed the wife’s infidelities on sleeping pills, which made her delirious. Marcus accidentally drank the pill, which did made him do crazy stuff. Allen had to trick Marcus into drinking the pill again to show the judge that they have a cause for suing the drug company.
The case, however, didn’t prosper the way the partners would’ve liked it because the judge only asked that the drug company provide warning labels on their products. Worse, their client ran off with her lover, which meant that even without the drugs causing her to act in weird ways, she really was having an affair.
The episode ended with Marcus tricking Allen into drinking the pill, and later, he recorded Allen’s antics on video, where he was seen twerking.
