It's Doug's 40th birthday and at his party, one of Carrie's co-worker asks Carrie if Doug is having a hard time with the fact that he is now 40 and perhaps unhappy about getting older and not accomplishing enough in life. Doug isn't concerned about his age and lack of accomplishments, but Carrie is, so she is trying to make Doug realize that he should want to do more with his life. When she asks him if there is anything in life that he wishes he could accomplish, she is surpised and disappointed to find out that his big regret in life was not riding a roller coaster when he was younger because it was too scary. So, now Doug is determined to conquer his fear and take on that roller coaster.
