  • Water filters.

    7.3
    Water filters are the theme at hand in tonight's installment of The King of Queens. The episode was a well-executed and well-performed attempt to showcase the struggles of pyramid schemes and even 10 years later this is still a relatable issue (see Madoff, Bernie).



    The episode also featured the funny, multi-time Emmy Award-winning Bryan Cranston as Tim Sacksky, the goofy, outlandish, next door neighbor. Even though there were some continuity errors with his appearances on the show, he always provided some good laughs and you have to wonder why The King of Queens never brought in him in a full-time role. Even if his Malcolm in the Middle show got in the way, any neighbor would have helped add another interesting dynamic to the show. Spencer and Deacon can only do so much.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the opening scene when Carrie has trouble with parking, we see the car from the top and Carrie's arm in the window. When the car is parked right eventually, Doug's arm is showing, which means, that he was the one parking the car correctly. In the next scene, Carrie is at the wheel again.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Carrie: You are not dragging my father into this!
      Doug: I am not dragging him in! He knows what he's doing. He happens to be very savvy as well.
      Carrie: Okay, now I'm convinced you don't know what that word means.

    • Arthur: This is me leaning forward with interest.
      Doug: Alright, well lean back with interest or have a mint.

    • Doug: Did you know he didn't learn to swim til he was 23?
      Carrie: Really? Remind me to send you a picture of me yawning.
