Storyline

Doug sees a picture of Carrie's mother in which she looks really fat. Doug tells Arthur he never knew she was fat and Arthur tells him she wasn't always like that. But at one point, well, she just started expanding rapidly. Now Doug is afraid Carrie will also get fat and he wants her to lose weight by going on a diet. Deacon advises against this because it'll get him into serious trouble with Carrie, but Doug thinks it won't be as bad as that and decides to try and talk Carrie into going on a diet.
