Doug is a football player at Westdale High School. Marcia really wanted a date with the class hunk, and he finally asks her. Peter accidentally hits her in the nose with a football, and Doug breaks the date when he sees Marcia's swollen nose. He used the classic excuse line, "Something suddenly came up!" Ironically, Marcia later used this exact same line on "Doug" to give him his comeuppance when he later asked the "healed" Marcia on a date. Then Doug went to the pizza parlor and saw Marcia and Charlie at the parlor. Then Doug and Charlie got in a fight. According to Marcia, Charlie won the fight and Doug's nose swelled and he became embarrassed and ran back home.
