The King of Queens: The Shmenkmans / Season: 2 / Episode: 18 (2000)
February 21, 2000
Doug and Carrie have new friends, Gary and Abby Shmenkman. They have become their new "Saturday Night Friends" because they, like Doug and Carrie, don't have kids. One Saturday night, Doug and Carrie have plans to go to dinner with their new friends, and at the last minute, Deacon and Kelly are able to get a babysitter, but Doug and Carrie are torn between going out with their new friends verses spending the evening with their "old" friends. They decide on a compromise of Sunday brunch - with both couples. They are disappointed and feel left out when the new friends bond with the old friends.
