Doug has a great weekend all planned out for him and Carrie - including watching all of the Planet of the Apes movies. Unfortunately, Carrie has to go out of town for the weekend for work - to build houses for the less fortunate. Doug follows Carrie to Connecticut to surprise her, but the surprise is on him when Carrie tries to get him to go home so she can spend the weekend relaxing with her girlfriends. 
 
Meanwhile, Danny and Spence sneak backstage at a Huey Lewis and the News concert but things don't go as quite as planned.
