3 corrected entries in season 3

(37 votes)

Strike One - S3-E5

Corrected entry: In this episode Doug buys their Jeep during the October-Palooza sale right as IPS goes on strike. Later in the episode Doug says he just wants to "put his shorts on and feel like a man again". However, October in New York (and moving forward in episodes "Strike Too" and "Strike Out") would be too cold to still be wearing shorts.

The Minister

Correction: Much like UPS in real life, IPS defines their drivers in part by their shorts. This is a running gag on King Of Queens. Does says this just as a cop might say "I want to put on my badge again" even if he was working undercover.

Strike One - S3-E5

Corrected entry: In the scene where Doug is ordering his fudge blast (and extras), his hands never leave the steering wheel. In fact, his right hand is on top of the steering wheel the entire time. However, after his order is placed, he automatically goes to start the car. It should still be running.


Correction: The whole point of the scene was his car died on him while in the drive-thru, so he had to start it back up. In fact, you can hear the car die/shut off while Doug is ordering.


Strike One - S3-E5

Corrected entry: In this episode, when Carrie asks Doug about ripping out the shower tile without replacing it, Doug says he was "trying to save some money around here." It doesn't make sense that he would he decide to renovate the shower tile at all while on strike and trying to save money - he would still have to purchase a lot of materials even if he did it himself. We also know from earlier in the episode that Doug is not very handy when he breaks the cupboard handle while trying to just tighten it.

The Minister

Correction: Doug is a bit of a moron, probably didn't think it through before he started tearing stuff down. Then it was too late, and it HAD to be fixed.

In fairness to Doug, people often think that home repair/remodelling jobs will be easy. They are convinced that the experienced professionals want to do a simple task and charge an outrageous price. However, you can create a bigger, more expensive mess by rushing into a project and not fully understanding what you are doing.

Friender Bender - S4-E4

Trivia: When Spence is describing why he can't eat peanuts ("My body doesn't like this and my throat gets real small") Kirby's hands are mimicking the lines along with Spence because he already knows what Spence is going to say. (00:51:40)

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know if Carrie and Doug had a baby on the show? And also was it just me, or was Carrie pregnant in real life in one season, and they did not write it into the show, or did she just gain a lot of weight?

Answer: To answer the question directly. Carrie and Doug do not have a biological child during the show's main run. In season 3 or 4 finale (cant remember which) Carrie has a miscarriage. Later on in the show they find out Carrie has 1 working ovary. Thus reducing the chance of them conceiving. By the final season, they couple agree to adopt from China and go to collect their child in the show's final episode. While on the flight back from China it's revealed that Carrie is once again pregnant. However the last scene of the show is a flash forward showing that Carrie goes full term with that child and they are struggling with both kids.

Answer: Leah Remini was not pregnant in real life at the time of the series finale in 2007. Her daughter was born in summer 2004 and it was obvious she gained weight and wore larger clothes during that season. So no, her real pregnancy was not written into the show.

Answer: They did have a baby in the series finale. They actually adopted a baby from China, and then at the same time they found out she was pregnant. She was pregnant in real life, but they just covered her up, as much as they could, during the filming of the show.
