The King of Queens: Package Deal / Season: 3 / Episode: 19 (2001)
April 9, 2001
Doug has been feeling unappreciated at work. He hears that FedEx drivers are being paid more than double what he makes, so when he runs in to a former IPS worker (who now works for FedEx) he mistakenly thinks his former co-worker has offered him a job as a driver at FedEx. Doug tries to use this information to play hardball with his boss in order to get a raise and a better delivery route. His plan backfires, and instead of the raise, his boss wishes him well at FedEx. Unfortunately for Doug, FedEx isn't hiring, so Doug ends up taking a job as a bike messenger.
Meanwhile, Carrie has become addicted to using the sunless tanning cream that her neighbor, Lou Ferrigno, uses.
