  • This is a great episode.

    Well it turns out Carrie is nicer when she is drunk. Love the skate ring thing, it is just great how they fit that in there. A lot of quality for one scene. I like how the writers incorporated Doug's diet along with it. And this is prob ably the only episode when Arthur isn't that annoying. But then it goes downhill when he sells out Doug. Lou is good in this epsiode. I also like how they made the running gag when the friends still don't see a difference in Carrie throughout the episode. I like how this episode intensified Carrie.moreless

    Lush-life, is a king of queens classic. From start to end. Doug and Spooner get Carrie drunk so they can have that they want. How can that not be funny? I would put this in the classic tv show episodes of all time. And this is why I watch king of queens.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Doug sulks over his healthy microwave meal)
      Carrie: Oh, have your stupid pizza!
      Doug: Really?
      Carrie: Yeah.
      Doug: You're not just baiting me, like that time you told me I can get the porn channel, then said I disgust you?

    • Lou: Isn't it better to love the person for who they really are, not when they're made artificially nicer by alcohol?
      Doug: (chuckles) You're adorable.

    • Doug: I care about keeping you happy.
      Carrie: Oh, yeah? Well, how about we stop chain-swallowing Yodels? That'll be a start, okay?

    • Carrie: I'm bored. Let's go do something!
      Doug: I gotta be up for work early, honey. I want to be sharp tomorrow.
      Carrie: Oh, yeah. "Sign here for this package, ma'am." Gotta be sharp for that.

    • (Carrie comes inside after Lou told her what's going on)
      Carrie: (sips martini) Hmm, suddenly I feel less bitchy and easier to live with.
      Doug: Oh, God.

    • Arthur: This is a perfectly good container. Why are you throwing it out?
      Carrie: Because when I buy margarine again, I'm pretty sure they're going to give me another one to take it home in.

    • Carrie: Fat; really fat; lose five pounds, but still fat.
