Holly has been kicked out of her apartment and Arthur lets her stay in the basement with him. At first Doug isn't too fond of having Holly around, but that changes when it turns out Holly, in contrast with Carrie, laughs at his jokes, makes him all the food he wants and never tells him off about something. Doug now has one woman downstairs for food and one woman upstairs for sex and has the time of his life. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

Doug walks by Carrie in the office on the way downstairs
9 April 2009 | by supermuchSee all my reviews

The first day Doug lingers at the office room door after asking Carrie if she is coming down for Breakfast...He tells Carrie he doesn't want to sit alone and have to talk with Holly while eating breakfast. Carrie finally senses he is still at the doorway and says in a very funny Carrie-ism "OK baby, what do we have here"

Then he goes down and Holly and him Hit it off, big time.

The next day he walks into the office and cheerfully asks Carrie if she is coming down for breakfast and hurries out when she says "No". He goes down and Holly has all kinds of food..She asks him "Do you want Pancakes, eggs and hand cut Bacon?" Doug replies: "Yes, Yes and Hell Yes"

The next day we see Carrie sitting in the office.. Doug barely turns as he breezes by and mumbles "Coming down for dinner?"... and he's gone.. That scene cracked me up so bad.......
