Doug and Deacon discover they have more in common with each other's wives than their own, so they start hanging out with each other's wives as well. When Kelly tires of Doug, he ruins Deacon and Carrie's good time. Meanwhile, Arthur dispenses romance advise and the recipient finds success simply doing the opposite.


When going to the cinema, Doug and Carrie can't decide on which film they want to see. They run into Deacon and Kelly and it turns out Kelly wants to see the picture Doug wants to see and Deacon likes the film Carrie likes. It turns out Doug and Kelly have more in common and they start doing more things together. So do Deacon and Carrie.


During the montage of the "spouse swap," the song "Stuck With You" by Huey Lewis and the News plays. It is revealed in the following episode, The King of Queens: Hartford Wailer (2006) that Doug's friends Danny and Spence are both big Huey Lewis fans.
