The King of Queens: Hungry Man / Season: 1 / Episode: 21 (1999)
April 5, 1999
Doug has promised to go to an important client party with Carrie. His day turns out to be busier than usual by working a double shift. In order to keep his word, he has to save time throughout the day - by skipping lunch, snacks and dinner. Doug changes into his borrowed suit in the building’s elevator, which unbeknownst to him is private, and greets guests in his underwear when the doors open directly into the reception. Doug manages to charm Carrie and the clients, but his shameless search for a morsel of food at the drinks only affair leaves a lasting impression - two raw eggs, a pickled carrot, sake, ten-odd breath mints and a cigar on the elevator carpet.
