Episode Summary

Damon comes home after work, and Bernard tells him he has to leave right away; Bernard actually has a woman in the bedroom. The only problem is that Bernard told her that he's an undercover cop named Damon. The woman, Carla, comes in to meet Damon who is introduced as Bernard. Carla says she understands he's a security guard. Damon's irritated, but he gets really upset when he realizes he'll be sleeping on the couch. Bernard and Damon give Carla a tour of the squad room. Carla can't understand why everyone seems to know Damon and not Bernard. The Captain tells everyone that they have to be more diligent about recycling and proceeds to make a speech on the subject. Back at the apartment Bernard begs Damon to allow him to keep up the charade for just one more night; very reluctantly Damon agrees, puts on Bernard's uniform and goes out to be a security guard for a night. Damon comes home after a very frustrating evening and finds Bernard, bald, dressed in his clothes, wearing his earring. He's even wearing Damon's underwear, but it's the last straw when he calls Damon "Bernard" when Carla's not even around. Damon demands that he tell Carla the truth; he wants his life back, but Bernard says he's not done with it yet. They go to the bank where Carla works so Bernard can make his confession, and someone tries to hold up the bank while they're there. Damon gets the situation under control, but Bernard helps out and considers himself a hero. When Bernard confesses to Carla, she says she has a tiny confession herself; her name used to be Carl.moreless
