After seeing Doug eat a hearty breakfast of pancakes and sausage, Carrie advises him to eat a light lunch since they’ll be going to a play with some work friends of hers. Not only does Doug ignore her advice, he participates in an egg roll eating competition during lunchtime. By the time the play comes around, Doug has such an upset stomach that he can’t stop belching. Carrie is infuriated and sends her husband home early only to find him stuffing his face with Yodel chocolate cakes when she arrives. Carrie convinces Doug to go see a therapist who will help him overcome his poor eating habits and lose weight. Doug’s therapist, Dr. Wagner, gives him some great tips on watching his food intake, and Carrie is happily surprised. Soon she starts giving her own suggestions on some of the “problems the doctor can help Doug with . . . like watching too much television, being more spontaneous, tips on being a better lover, etc. It’s not until Deacon gets in on the game and adds some issues of his own to Doug's “therapy list that the truth gets out.
