Carrie (Leah Remini) is convinced she and her husband Dopug (Kevin
James) are getting dumber by the minute, and to oppose that, she has
decided for the both of them to take a class on Victorian literature. When
Doug faces the challenge of reading Jane Eyre though, he miserably
fails, and to not disappoint his wife, he steals the homework of his nerdy
friend and classmate Spence (Patton Oswalt), just like when they were back
in school. In class though, it becomes immediately apparent to Carrie that
his answers on the homework's questions are far too detailed for a man of
Doug's lack of interest in literature altogether, and when she confronts
him with having stolen his homework from Spence, he admits to it, but when
he says he has done it out of love, she forgives him ...
amusing, this is actually one of the lesser episodes of King of
Queens, as its premise is just too far-fetched to really work -
yet it has some significance within the series as it is the first time
Doug is caught with an elaborate lie, which would become a fixture with
the program later on. It has to be noted here that Doug never lies out of
malice, nor about things really important, he just lies to keep his life
as simple and comfortable as it is (it never works), to not disappoint his
wife, or out of love to his wife. Mostly though, the confusion caused by
his lie is far more funny or important than the actual lie ...
