Doug and Carrie are having a party for their eleventh anniversary and get a portrait of the two of them from Deacon and Kelly. They hate the portrait but don't want to show it and put it up. Spence convinces Danny to give Doug and Carrie something as well and when they ask them what they want Doug and Carrie suggest that they steal the portrait. All Deacon and Kelly wanted was to open up a conversation about stupid gifts because Doug and Carrie once gave them a very stupid and racist black jazz band sculpture. Written by Marco van Hoof <>
