We have only seen Marshall's law office occasionally, most notably in a show arc that lasted a few episodes with Martin Short as his boss back in season four. Here, we see the law firm has fallen on hard times and only two lawyers remain in the whole firm: Marshall and his lawyer buddy "Bernard". With Bernard's help, Marshall can honestly tell his wife Lily (actress Alyson Hannigan) he was busy with "a big case", that he was with "the Client", that "he had a lot on his plate", that he had "a lot of balls in the air", that he was going "to get reamed" and that they were keeping "a lot of plates spinning". SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN THE EPISODE: The comedy is that Bernard and Marshall are drinking "a big case" of beer, that Bernard is reading the book "The Client" to Marshall, that Marshall and Bernard have a lot of food on their plate at lunch, that Bernard is juggling rubber band balls in the office, that Bernard is throwing reams of paper at Marshall's head, and that Bernard is spinning lunch plates on pencils like a circus performer.
Would like to see more of Marshall and Bernard, they made a good comedy team.
