** However, it should be noted that unlike ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' with [[ButtMonkey Raymond]] and [[{{jerkass}} Debra]], Doug was always portrayed as equally strongwilled and just as often meant to be "right" in the plot as Carrie.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The first house Doug and Carrie bought together turned out to be more impractical than awesome as Doug initially thought. The house itself was uncomfortably close to a school, the easy chair that looked like a hand wasn't as comfortable as it looked, the sunken living room was a booby trap, and the dumbwaiter was, well, [[StealthPun dumb]].
--> '''Doug''': ''(examining the mess left by the faulty dumbwaiter)'' We're going to need a tiny cleaning lady.

* FleetingPassionateHobbies: A psychologist unwisely advocates Carrie and Doug giving Arthur what he wants as a sort of aversion therapy, in the hope that the continual demanding will burn itself out. Arthur then ploughs through a dozen or so expensive hobbies in the space of a month, beginning each in a state of high enthusiasm that inevitably burns itself out when the novelty is gone.

Deacon loves the Koosh ball that his son gave him and doesn't want anything to happen to it, but he chooses to bring it to work and play around with it. When it predictably gets lost, he has a fit. Why did he bring this precious possession into work if it was so important to him?

* TookALevelInJerkass: Both Doug and Carrie. Doug has some selfish moments in early seasons, but is generally a NiceGuy. He becomes a lot more self-centered and prone to [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkassery]] in later seasons. Carrie actually started out as probably one of the most well-adjusted and nicest characters you'll see in an American Sitcom, but in later seasons she's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold at best.
