  • Doug's Cookin' Great, Doug Loses Dale not so much

    This episode had the best of Doug and the worst of Doug. I enjoyed the first episode of Doug's Cookin' with Patti and Doug deciding to make a pizza. The funny thing is Roger accidentally runs into Doug and Patti with his banana pudding. The pizza and pudding collide. Pretty much is just shows that you can be creative and make something out of what you thought would not work. I liked this one a lot. 9.5/10

    Doug loses Dale was not memorable to me and is one of my least favorite episodes of the entire series. What happens? Wow, Doug gets to babysit Skeeter's annoying little brother. I never cared for Dale. This one was nothing special.


    Overall, you get one great episode in Doug's Cookin', and a pretty mediocre to below average episode of Doug loses Dale.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (After Roger teases Doug and Patti being teamed up together for the cooking class)
      Mrs. Wingo: And since we have an odd number of students in the class, the last student will be paired up with me. And that student is... Roger Klotz.
      Roger: AHHHH!

    • (after their dish explodes)
      Patti: I'm sorry, Doug, but I warned you I can't cook. It's just that I never learned. I was always busy with something else like ballet or basketball or something.

    • Patti: It's just that... I don't know how to cook. In fact, the one time I tired... I filled our entire house with smoke.
      Doug: Oh, that happens to everybody.

    • (after hearing that Skeeter and Bebe are being paired up together for the cooking project)
      Roger: Hey, Valentine! You two gonna bake a wedding cake?

  • NOTES (1)

    • In "Doug's Cookin", Mr. Dink's computerized chef (named Julia) has a voice that is similar to a famous real-life chef named Julia Child.


    • Mr. Dink: (about his state-of-the-art kitchen)
      Judging by the computer's voice and how the kitchen is called Julia, this greatly references the known chef Julia Child (1912-2004).
