  • Best episode of the last ones leading up to the Series Finale.

    I loved this episode. It was by far my favorite one leading up to the series finale. Doug becomes a devout vegetarian after almost running over a chicken during his route at the beginning of the episode. His passion for animals leads to him becoming an outrageous proponent of vegetarianism, even to the point of him opposing to people drinking coffee (because of the conditions the workers who pick the beans must endure), which sets Carrie back in her attempts to become closer to her boss, Mr. Kaufman. The sub plot of this episode is how Mr. Kaufman wants Carrie to become his "book buddy," which leads Carrie on a mission to try and read 'The Contortionist's Daughter,' an 1,100 page book which Doug ends up reading for her. Overall, an extremely well written and acted episode. I still laugh every time I watch it.
  • Another great episode nicely written.

    Doug turns veggie after rescuing a chicken from a Chinese meat clever, he realises what eating meat doe’s not just to his health but to the animals like the one he rescued, but though he come’s off meat he try’s to wean Carrie and others off meat with little success, Carrie on the other hand has bigger problems when she try’s to impress her boss by a book he’s reading, it all backfire’s naturally on her when Carries boss gives her the book to read.

    Meanwhile Doug is still playing the meat hating philosophical veggie geek and Carrie hates it, naturally it doesn’t last forever as Doug see‘s sense and after a comical turn of events get’s back to his meat eating ways.
  • What a great episode!!!!!!!

    Doug while driving through Chinatown meets a chicken and sees how animals are killed to make meat. Because of this he becomes a strict vegitarian... Carrie soon grows tired of Doug's forcing his new vegetarian lifestyle down her throat. Meanwhile, Carrie's boss wants to start discussing novels with her and Spence takes on some humiliating new jobs. Doug even gets so protected and strict about being a vegitarian that he maked Carrie only wear certain clothes that were not made with animal fur or hair. In the end this episode was great, and Spence getting al of those humiliating jobs only added to how great an episode this was...
  • Doug learns about how meat is processed, and decides to become a vegetarian. Meanwhile Carrie wants to impress her boss by acting interested in a 1200 page book. Eventually Doug drives Carrie up the wall with his vegetarian kick! Great Episode!!

    This was yet another great episode from the King of Queens staff. I really like how the episode started, with another familiar scene of Doug trying to drive his truck and eat chinese food at the same time..which never ends well. This time he hits something..turns out it's a chicken but it's not hurt at all. As Doug gets ready to flee the scene he see's that an asian man is coming out of a business with a cleaver and hanging in the window of the mans business are cooked chickens. Feeling guilty, he grabs the chicken and leaves the scene. The next few scenes are great! Doug bonding with the chicken! Finally Doug leaves the chicken at a farm. I really liked the scene when Doug gets home from work and Carrie pulls the cooked chicken out of the oven, then rips a leg right off..and Doug freaks out. Really funny stuff. Who would have thought that Doug could be grossed out by any kind of food?! So Doug decides to quit eating meat. Meanwhile all of these burger places are trying to come up with a new burger to appeal to everyone. Carrie is trying to impress her boss by acting interested in a 1200 page book, but it backfires when Carrie's boss gives her the book to read. Doug and his new eating habbits somehow transform his entire character into this smug, glasses wearing wimp. Carrie gets very annoyed at the 'new' Doug. One of the funniest scenes in the show is when Doug is making a delivery and a truck drives by with a huge new burger add! He turns the other way in disgust only to see another truck with another add for a different kind of new burger. He panics after seeing 2 more burger adds and hearing a radio add for a burger. Carrie comes home later to find that Doug has broken down and was passed out with a huge burger in his hands, and even more burgers on the table. She happily touches his face knowing that she got her old Doug back! What a funny episode! I give this a 9!
