Plot Overview

A nude painting of Marshall gives Barney an idea for a portrait of his own, and Ted can't quite bring himself to fire his former boss in spite of the man's obnoxiousness.

When Ted is constantly insulted by his former boss, who is now working for him on a project, he is told to fire the man, but he finds that a hard thing to do. Meanwhile, Barney offers Lily a lot of money to paint a nude portrait of him.
