  • Arguably the most memorable episode of the series. Hilarious plot about the bond that develops between Doug, Deacon, and Arthur when all three share something in common, no job.

    After three weeks, IPS is still on strike. Doug and Deacon have seemingly lost purpose in life and become depressed homebodies. Lazy Doug grooms Elvis sideburns after Carrie makes him shave and was such a funny part of the episode. Then something special happens. Doug, Deacon and Arthur truly find the kid inside of them and become a gang of pranksters. They go outside and take on Queens with a care free rebel attitude. Its nice to see Arthur considered an equal this time instead of a crazy outsider.

    The slow-motion scene of the three of them (and Deacon's baby) walking together on the street, "mean muggin" to the song Fight the Power by Public Enemy highlights this great episode.
