When Carrie asks what happens at Doug's Overeater's Support Group, he tells her that on the first day, they talked about famous fat people, "like the lady from 'The Practice', and on the second day, they talk about famous skinny people, "like the other lady from 'The Practice'."
In an effort to help Doug gain control of his weight, Carrie insists that he join an overeating support group. But when Doug notices an abusive relationship group down the hall that offers donuts and potato chips, he decides to join them instead. The group convinces Doug that his eating is a coping mechanism for Carrie's anger, and she becomes suspicious when he not only gains weight, but begins to cower in her presence.
