Episode Summary

Bernard's depressed, he tells Damon, because he's a failure at everything: he's single, a security guard and sleeps on his brother's couch. Bernard says he should take the police exam, but Damon reminds him he's failed five times. Furthermore, every time Damon tries to help Bernard, Bernard wants to do it his way. Bernard says he'll train himself; he doesn't need Damon's help. At headquarters, the Captain is after Fontaine because he has too many unsolved cases. Damon senses that something else is wrong, and the Captain tells him that her ex-husband has just gotten married and wants her to have dinner with him and his new bride. Damon gives her a pep talk and agrees to be her dinner date. Bernard's trying to prepare for his police exam, but he clearly has no idea what he's doing. Damon says he's sure to fail the test, and Bernard grudgingly confesses that he does need some help from Damon. Damon subjects Bernard to rigorous physical training and role-playing exercises until he begs for mercy. The night before Bernard's test, Damon says he has to leave for his "date" with the Captain, but Bernard begs him not to go. The Captain is upset when Fontaine shows up for dinner in Damon's place, but Fontaine stands up to her ex-husband, and, by the end of the evening, has gotten quite romantic. Bernard learns he's passed the written exam and gets into the academy. When he's asked how he's respond in a crisis situation, he freezes up, and it looks like all is lost until Damon manufactures a "crisis" and everyone gets to see Bernard behave like a pro.moreless
