Carrie becomes suspicious when Doug's 10th Anniversary at IPS, a date that used to coincide with the beginning of their relationship, arrives three months later than it should. Doug's sordid tale of how he faked employment in order to win her over transports them back to 1995, a time when Doug was still lazy, but Carrie was too blinded by love and mascara to notice.
