  • Holly reprises her role.

    I guess you can see that Holly is becoming a recurring/major character after this episode when Arthur continues to walk with Holly. I am really starting to like Holly's character. I like the confrontation between Carrie & Holly on how Holly enjoys spending time with Arthur. Of course Carrie hates spending time with him which makes this episode a whole lot more interesting. Doug's plot seemed a bit of a filler. Making a record in IPS? Seemed unrealistic how everyone hated him for that. Even his best friends turned on him. The end when he tries to get the last package was hilarious!
  • This episode shows doug who is about to break the all time record for ips deliveries without complaint. The current leader is an ips legend. Everyone tries to stop doug until the final package where he cant get to the man. he hurls it up and the catch is

    An excellent episode a remake of a classic story, from the middle ages. A well written episode to fit "the king of queens". This show is not a show that you need to see every episode it's a lot like everybody loves raymond and seinfeld. A new story for every episode and the odd two part show.
  • Reminiscent of Cal Ripken Jr.'s quest for the most consecutive games. For a sit-com this was edge-of-your-seat stuff!

    Doug's dilemma in this episode is reminiscent of Baltimore Oriole shortstop Cal Ripken Jr.'s quest for the most consecutive games played record. When he approached Lou Gehrig's record of 2130 games, fans of the Yankee legend gave Ripken a hard time and suggested that he should skip a game on purpose.

    This episode first aired the same week the "Iron Man" of baseball retired. Watching this episode brought back the same feelings. Would he do it? If not, would fate hand him defeat, or would he buckle under the pressure and take himself out of the running?

    For a sit-com this was edge-of-your-seat stuff!
