Marshall and Jethro play gin. Jethro accuses Marshall of saving jacks, and Marshall claims that he's not, so you know that he totally is. Who admits to his opponent what cards he is saving while playing gin? An idiot, that's who. And Marshall is no idiot. Karen sits down at their table just as Marshall declares that he has gin. Karen tells him that Louis DiNardo is back in town. Marshall wants to bring up one of his old stories about a taxi driver who knocked out Marshall's front tooth. Karen tries to pull the subject back to DiNardo, since she's clearly heard this story a million times, and tells Marshall about the credit card and the hardware store. Marshall continues telling his story, which basically ends with Marshall beating up the taxi driver later. Karen is mystified as to why DiNardo would buy a hedge trimmer, and then admits that she told Amos she would find him in three days, and that she really wants to do that. Marshall advises her not to let it get personal. Karen asks if the taxi driver wasn't personal, and Marshall says it's "a point well taken."
Isabella Hoffman walks up and greets Marshall, introducing herself as Mrs. Mulraney. She asks if the restaurant is his office, and Marshall says that his office is being painted. Marshall introduces her to Karen and Jethro. Karen's phone rings, so she apologizes for having to leave, and suggests that Mrs. Mulraney check out Marshall's office when the paint job is done. Marshall shakes his head at Karen as she walks off.
