Episode Synopsis: Partners episode 7 & 8 “The Curious Case of Benjamin Butt-Ugly/The Law School Reunion” – When one of Allen’s former colleagues wants to divorce his wife over an ugly baby he can’t believe he fathered, the guys investigate a fertility clinic to uncover the sticky truth. When Allen brings Marcus to his prestigious law school reunion, Allen finds himself sidelined by his friends and unexpectedly outshined by his partner.

Show Summary: Partners opens after Allen Braddock (Kelsey Grammer), a blue-blood Chicago lawyer, is fired from his father’s law firm for his questionable ethics and is brought down to the courthouse to be punished. There he runs into Marcus Jackson (Martin Lawrence), a man-of-the-people community lawyer who is representing himself in his own divorce settlement hearing. The two men strike a deal and end up forming an unexpected partnership. In the second episode, the partners suspect that a high-end wedding planner is taking advantage of same-sex couples and while Marcus sees this as an opportunity to help a young couple that was duped, Allen focuses on the lucrative potential in cornering the market on future same-sex divorces. When they pose as a couple to get evidence, it shines a light on the problems in their own relationship. Other series regulars include Telma Hopkins, Rory O’Malley, McKaley Miller, Edi Patterson and Danièle Watts.
