Back when Doug was a nightclub bouncer and Carrie a shop seller, Doug's buddy from the nightclub successfully asked Carrie out for a date. But Carrie wanted her friend Lynn to come along so Doug agreed for a double date. Doug's buddy made sure their neighbor's dog would be present at their bachelor pad. While it was eventually only the buddy and Lynn who had chemistry, Carrie accidentally allowed the dog to run off. While driving to find the dog, their ongoing common dislike was intensified until Carrie asked to leave the car near a bus station. The episode ended as Doug drove back to said bus station to try having a second chance with Carrie. Written by Anonymous

Lynn: Do you... you know, get in to a lot of fights at the club?
Doug Heffernan: Well, you know, it is... it's... I try everything I can not to fight. It's like I tell my boys. Always be nice. Be very nice. Until it's time to not be nice. Then... be very not nice.
Lynn: [laughs] I love that!

Lynn: Oh, I never saw that movie.
Doug Heffernan: You never saw it...? It's only the greatest movie ever made except for Risky Business.

both king and queen are certifiable
10 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

after having watched this show in rerun several times ,it now occurs to me that both Carrie and Doug are borderline insane.. Most sitcoms have a normal spouse that reacts to the zany one.. (see the honeymooners).. In King of Queens both characters are Ralph Cramden.. They alternate between episodes as to which one is the the most bonkers.. Some episodes it is a tie...

Throw in Arthur and we have a regular coo-coo's nest.. The show is hilarious,well written and well acted. None better that Jerry Stiller... (a comic genius).. Also nice to see Ann Meara in a recurring role as Spences' mom...

The only continuing voice of reason is Deacon.. As far as I can tell he is the only character on the show that has it more or less together.. The rest are certifiable..albeit hilarious..
