Episode: Models & Mortals

Charlotte: In some cultures, heavy women with mustaches are considered beautiful.
Samatha: And you're looking at me while you're saying that?

Samantha: I happen to love the way I look.
Miranda: You should. You paid enough for it.

Episode: Bay Of Married Pigs

Carrie: Charlotte treated marriage like a sorority she was desperately hoping to pledge.

Carrie: He was like the flesh and blood equivalent of a DKNY dress: you know it's not your style but it's right there, so you try it on anyway.

Carrie: Everywhere I looked, people were standing in two's. It was like Noah's upper west side rent-controlled ark.

Episode: Secret Sex

Samantha: Don't worry, sweetie, don't worry! Nobody in New York notices a bus until it's about to hit them!

Episode: The Turtle and the Hare

Carrie: My Zen teacher also said: the only way to true happiness is to live in the moment and not worry about the future. Of course, he died penniless and single.

Episode: The Baby Shower

Samantha, watching Lanie strip at a party: Look at her: the poster girl for low self esteem.
Miranda: You know, I have low self esteem, but I express it the healthy way -- by eating a box of Double Stuf Oreos.

Miranda: Maybe it's maturity or the wisdom that comes with age, but the witch in Hansel and Gretel, she's very misunderstood. I mean, the woman builds her dream house and these brats come along and start eating it.


Episode: Take Me Out To The Ballpark

James: And how are the most beautiful women in Manhattan?
Miranda: If I see them, I'll ask.

Charlotte: It takes half the total time you went out with someone to get over them.
Carrie: I always like a good math solution to any love problem.

Carrie: Miranda was a huge fan of the Yankees. I was a huge fan of being anywhere you could smoke and drink at two in the afternoon without judgement.

Episode: The Awful Truth

Susan Sharon: It's 100% Italian cashmere and light as a feather.
Carrie: God, I love it! It's a cashmere-acle!

Episode: The Freak Show

Carrie: When Charlotte really liked somebody she said their whole name. It helped her picture their future monogrammed towels.

Miranda: Whatever happened to aging gracefully?
Carrie: It got old.

Episode: They Shoot Single People, Don't They?

Carrie: By now she knew that "we" William wasn't ever going to show up. He was one of those men who faked a future to get what he wanted in the present.

Episode: Four Women and a Funeral

Big: I never really thought about it.
Carrie: Oh come on. Everybody wonders what happens after you die.
Big: I'm too busy wondering who's dinging my car in the garage.

Episode: The Chicken Dance

Big: This is fun.
Carrie: It's not supposed to be fun. This is somebody's wedding.

His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was, "I do."

Episode: The Caste System

Carrie: Now I've laid down a gauntlet. He either has to say "I love you" back or I guess I'm going to have to break up with him.
Charlotte: Well, how long are you going to give him?
Carrie: Well, I didn't put an expiration date on the sentiment, but I figure it's got the shelf life of a dairy product. It's going to start to curdle in about a week.

Steve: What's wrong with corduroy?
Miranda: I don't have enough time to tell you what's wrong with corduroy.

Episode: La Douleur Exquise!

Charlotte: How does he wait on tables dressed like that? It's humiliating.
Carrie: Well, the summer I worked at Howard Johnson's I had to wear an orange hat.

Episode: Games People Play

Carrie: Hey, I don't need therapy. I need new friends!
Samantha: Look, we're as messed up as you are. It's like the blind leading the blind.

Carrie: Therapy? It's just so self-indulgent. Ancient man didn't need shrinks to survive.
Miranda: Ancient man only lived until thirty.

Carrie: I do not pick the wrong guys. They pick me.
Miranda: So what, you're like a flystrip for dysfunctional men?
Carrie: Yeah, but one of those really pretty floral scented ones.

Carrie: Sports night: every female's fantasy. A room full of captive men all looking to be distracted during commercial breaks.

Episode: The Buddy

Miranda: You double-booked?
Carrie: How do you conceive pulling this one off?
Charlotte: Early dinner with bachelor number one, late supper with bachelor number two.
Samantha: My god, you're turning into a man!
Carrie (voiceover): Apparently Charlotte had done more than just break a pattern. She had actually changed genders.
Charlotte: I just don't know how I'm going to eat two dinners in a row.
Carrie (voiceover): And just like that, she was a woman again.

Episode: Shortcomings

Samantha: Here's what I think. Round up all the divorced men and keep them in a pound. That way, you get their whole history before you take one home.

Vaughn: Hey, GQ called.
Carrie: Really? They want you to write something?
Vaughn: No, they want me to wear something. It's great to be a writer these days. There's so little writing involved.
Carrie: Just don't be photographed in anything sleeveless. No one who went sleeveless ever won a Pulitzer.

Samantha: I dated a guy once because his family had a pool. He was pretty much of a nerd, but... His mom loved me. She was always serving me Kool Aid and chips.
Carrie: Kool Aid?
Samantha: Yeah! Kool Aid! I was thirteen. And honey, you should've seen my tan!

Carrie: Wallis was right. The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don't, but in the end they're the people you always come home to. Sometimes it's the family you're born into and sometimes it's the one you make for yourself.

Episode: Was It Good For You?

Carrie: So what type of movies do you compose for?
Patrick: Really bad ones. You know, the "I Screamed When I Knew What You Did Last Summer on Elm Street" type.

Miranda: I'm trying to change my bed karma. I figure if I can make my bed a place I really want to be, others will feel the same.
Carrie: Aah, the Field of Dreams.
Miranda: Exactly. If you build it, he will come.

Episode: Twenty-Something Girls vs. Thirty-Something Women
Charlotte: It's a really cute three bedroom cottage and they're giving us a fantastic deal for the month of August.
Carrie: Yeah, of course it's a good deal. It's haunted with cheating boyfriends.
Samantha: We could always burn sage.

Carrie: The Hampton's Jitney is just like the bus to summer camp. Only instead of singing songs, everyone ignores each other and talks on their cell phones.

Charlotte: ...if he asks, he thinks I'm 27.
Carrie (voiceover): Evidently while we had taken the midtown tunnel, Charlotte had taken the time tunnel.
Episode: Ex and the City
Carrie: There is no way that the love that I had with Big is the same thing that he has with Natasha.
Miranda: "Natasha"? When did you stop calling her "the idiot stick figure with no soul"?

Carrie: An hour later I had solved the unsolvable friendship equation. It seems the answer is this: cosmopolitans plus scotch equals friendship with an ex.

Carrie: Your curl is lovely, Hubble.
Mr. Big: I don't get it.
Carrie: And you never did.

Episode: Where There's Smoke...
Miranda: Who would've thought an island that tiny would be big enough to hold all our old boyfriends?
Charlotte (drunk): I'm nice. I'm pretty, and smart! I'm a catch!

Charlotte: I've been dating since I was fifteen! I'm exhausted! Where is he?
Miranda: Who, the White Knight?
Samantha: That only happens in fairy tales.
Charlotte: My hair hurts.

Carrie: I lost my Choo!
Episode: Attack of the 5'10 Woman
Carrie: There are very few things this New Yorker loves as much as Sunday brunch. You can sleep until noon and still get eggs anywhere in the city, alcohol is often included with the meal, and Sunday is the one day a week you get the single woman's sports pages: the New York Times wedding section.
Miranda: Do you have a rolling pin?
Carrie: On me?
Miranda: In your kitchen.
Carrie: Are you kidding me? I use my oven for storage.

Carrie: I've talked to her twice. Once I was in a cowboy hat and once I was in my bra. I'm like frickin' Annie Get Your Clothes On.
Episode: Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl...
Samantha: You know, women dressing like men is very popular right now.
Carrie: And here I thought it was Pokemon.

Sean, who's ice skating with Carrie: I'm guessing it's easier to balance when you're not smoking.
Carrie: Smoking is the only thing that keeps me balanced.

Carrie: I'm not even sure bisexuality exists. I think it's just a layover on the way to gaytown.
Miranda: Isn't that next to Ricky Martin-ville?
Episode: No Ifs, Ands, or Butts
Charlotte: shouldn't be talking like that at all, Samantha, it's rude and politically incorrect.
Carrie: Sweetie, a reminder: Samantha is rude and politically incorrect.
Miranda: She's an equal opportunity offender.

Samantha: Adeena, I'm a lovely woman. At least get to know me, then hate me.

Episode: Are We Sluts?
Charlotte: Do you think I'm a whore?
Samantha: Oh please, if you're a whore, what does that make me?
Carrie: Wow! It's like a Danielle Steele novel in here!
Aidan: From a writer, I'm pretty sure that's an insult.
Episode: Drama Queens
Carrie: I realized I was in the throes of an existential crisis. One that not even the sight of this season's Dolce & Gabbana strappy sandals could lift me out of.

Miranda: Steve is completely predictable but that's one of the things I love about him. He's just so comfortable and safe.
Carrie: Are you dating a man or a minivan?

Samantha: From my experience, honey, if he seems too good to be true, he probably is.

Miranda: I just don't get it. Why do men get skidmarks? Is it laziness or are they just in a rush?
Carrie: I don't know, but whatever it is it goes hand in hand with urinating on the seat.
Miranda: I tell you one thing: when your boyfriend is so comfortable he can't be bothered to wipe his ass, that's the end of romance right there.

Charlotte: You kept all of your great single friends away from me just so you could cheat on your wife? (Slaps him.) You should be ashamed of yourself!
Guy: You're such a spark plug! I love that about you!
Charlotte: I am not interested in starting some married man's car!
Episode: The Big Time
Steve: Oh come on, I want a baby. It would be fun.
Miranda: It's not like owning a foosball table, Steve.
Episode: Easy Come, Easy Go
Carrie: I had often fantasized about running into my ex and his wife. But in those fantasies, I was running over them with a truck.

Mr. Big: Hey, have you got a light?
Carrie: I quit.
Mr. Big: Aw, we always used to share a cigarette together.
Carrie: We did a lot of things that were bad for me together.

Samantha: Well, let's just say it: you won.
Carrie: Was there a contest?
Samantha: Oh please! There's always a contest with an ex. It's called "who will die miserable."

Charlotte: Trey is this close to proposing, I can feel it.
Carrie: Oh my god, really?
Miranda: You just met! I've had pairs of pantyhose longer!
Miranda, to Carrie, who's listening to an answering machine message from Big: We could analyze this for years and never know, I mean, they still don't know who killed Kennedy.

Aidan: Don't take this the wrong way but this place could use a little work.
Carrie: I know, but I can't afford it.
Aidan: You've got eight thousand bucks' worth of shoes over there.
Carrie: I needed those!

Charlotte: I proposed to myself!
Carrie: What?
Charlotte: Yes. I suggested he have a tomato salad, then I suggested we get married.
Carrie: Wait. What exactly did he say?
Charlotte: Alrighty!
Carrie: Alrighty? He said alrighty? Now I'm thinking the upsetting thing isn't that you proposed, it's that you proposed to a guy that says "alrighty."
Charlotte: Oh, Carrie, stop!
Carrie: Alrighty.
Episode: Running With Scissors
Carrie: When Charles Dickens wrote "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," I believe he must have been having an affair with his married ex-boyfriend.

Carrie: Our affair, like our hotels, had gone from elegant with crystal to seedy with plastic cups.

Carrie: You've heard those stories about affairs where people realize how great their other relationship is and end it without anyone being the wiser.
Miranda: I don't watch Lifetime television for women.

Carrie: It was a typical downtown male mix. Ten percent Wall Street, ten percent real estate, and ten percent [Samantha had] already slept with.

Miranda, looking at a bride magazine: Ooh! Cute purse!
Charlotte: No purses! There's no time for purses! This is gown-specific!
Miranda: What's your theme again? A Nazi wedding?

Samantha: What if I have it?
Carrie: You don't have it.
Samantha: Sometimes it takes me a really long time to get over a cold.
Carrie: That's not AIDS, it's central air conditioning.

Carrie: Charlotte was thrilled. Anthony was like the pushy Italian mother she never had.

Carrie: We're so over, we need a new word for over.
Episode: Don't Ask, Don't Tell
Charlotte: Carrie, you're right, you have to tell him. But not before the wedding. It's supposed to be my week.
Miranda: It's your day. You get a day. Not a week.

Charlotte (whispering): Could you please not use the F-word in Vera Wang?
Episode: Escape From New York
Charlotte: I can't believe you're all going to LA without me.
Miranda: We still can't believe you went on your honeymoon without us!

Charlotte: So how are you?
Carrie: I'm good. How are you?
Charlotte: Great.
Carrie: I told Aidan about the affair and he broke up with me.
Charlotte: Trey and I never had sex on our honeymoon.
Carrie: You win. So. Should we get more coffee or should we get two guns and kill ourselves?
(Carrie is having trouble driving a stick-shift car.)
Miranda: Why didn't you just get an automatic?
Carrie: I love this car! It goes with my outfit.
Guy: This floor's non smoking!
Carrie: I have an addiction, sir!
Episode: Sex and Another City
Samantha: Drinking with three blondes! I guess that's a regular day for you.
Hugh Hefner: A slow one, yes.

Miranda: Maybe it's time that I stop being so angry.
Carrie: Yeah, but what would you do with all your free time?
Charlotte: My marriage is a fake Fendi!

Miranda, to Samantha, who's offered to take Charlotte to a Playboy Mansion party: Why would that cheer her up? Does she look like a 22-year-old frat boy?

Samantha: That bunny's got my bag!
Episode: Hot Child In The City
Wade: I know you've heard of Wonder Woman.
Carrie: Ooh, with the bracelets and the tiara. I used to love that even her accessories had superpowers.

Carrie: I'm scootin' in heels!

Carrie: So are you saying there's no way you'd go out with a guy who lived with his family?
Samantha: Well... maybe Prince William.

Samantha: Are you in pain? I'm in pain just looking at you.
Miranda: I'm a 34-year-old woman with braces and I'm on a liquid diet. Pain doesn't begin to cover it.
Carrie's answering machine message: Hi. I'm not here but my shoes are, so leave them a message.

Carrie: In the end I decided I was definitely 34 going on 35, but in a city like New York, with its pace and its pressures, sometimes it's important to have a 13-year-old moment. To remember a simpler time when the best thing in life was just hanging out, listening to records and having fun with your friends. In your very own apartment.
Episode: Frenemies
Miranda: They're starting to die on us.
Charlotte: Oh my god.
Samantha: Well, at least you weren't stood up.
Miranda: 35 and they're dying! We should just give up now.
Carrie: Well, on the bright side this could explain why they don't call back.
Charlotte: How did he...
Miranda: Heart attack. At the gym.
Carrie: See? This is why I don't work out.
Carrie: Do you know that there are no available men out there?
Miranda: Ahh, we're at my date's wake, so, yes.

Carrie: Awww, wow, he's cute!
Miranda: Was. Damn.

Miranda, at her date's post-wake party: He set money aside for this.
Carrie: That's nice. "I'm dead, you're not, enjoy the buffet!"
Miranda: I'm staying way out of this one.
Carrie: Way out. New Jersey out.

Episode: The Agony and the 'Ex'-tasy
Samantha (on dating service flyers): That's the postal equivalent of a drive-by shooting.
Carrie: Yeah, and I thought those fifty-seven menus I get every day from Hunan Munan were annoying.

Carrie: I'd like to think that people have more than one soulmate.
Samantha: I agree! I've had hundreds.
Carrie: Yeah! And you know what, if you miss one, along comes another one. Like cabs.

Carrie: If two people only have one thought between them, something is very wrong.

Carrie: I'm thirty-five.
Samantha: Oh, shut up, I'm a hundred and forty.
Episode: The Real Me
Miranda: Smart, yes, sometimes cute, but never sexy. Sexy is the thing I try to get them to see me as after I win them over with my personality.
Carrie: You win men over with your personality?

Lynn Cameron (fashion show producer), to Carrie: You're doing my show if I have to hunt you down, skin you alive and have one of the other models wear you.

Stanford: Ooh! Gucci and Dolce and Dior!
Carrie: Oh my!

Stanford: Oh my god! She's fashion roadkill!
Episode: What's Sex Got To Do With It?

Miranda, to Carrie's answering machine: Your good friend Miranda has just taken a piece of cake out of the garbage and eaten it. You will probably need this information when you check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic.
Episode: Ghost Town
Charlotte: Your mother decorated this entire apartment, didn't she.
Trey: Of course! Mother does all our houses.
Charlotte: I should have known. The plaid, and the mallards...
Trey: You don't like them?
Charlotte: No! It's like we live in the Museum of Natural Ugliness!
Episode: Baby, Talk Is Cheap
Charlotte: I promise I won't become one of those mothers who can only talk about diaper genies.
Carrie: Good.
Samantha: What the hell is a diaper genie?
Carrie: I don't know... someone you hire to change a kid's diaper?

Carrie: I don't believe in e-mail. I'm an old-fashioned girl. I prefer calling and hanging up.
Episode: My Motherboard, My Self
Charlotte: Whose legs bend back that far?
Miranda: This is like sex for the boneless!
Samantha: See, that's what I love about this guy, Nick, I'm seeing.
Miranda: He's de-boned?

Charlotte: You exchanged keys? That's big!
Carrie: No, that's the opposite of Big.

Carrie: Philadelpha. Just a hop, skip, a cab, a metroliner and another cab away.

Charlotte: Those flowers were supposed to say "We're so sorry, we love you," not "You're dead, let's disco"!
Episode: Sex and the Country
Trey: She's expecting us. If we miss the orchid show she'll be devastated.
Charlotte: Then I guess we'll just have to have sex at your mother's.
Trey: People having sex in Connecticut? There's a first time for everything.

Carrie: You can't be friends with a squirrel! A squirrel is just a rat in a cuter outfit.

Carrie: Yes, I'd like a cheeseburger, please, large fries and a cosmopolitan.

Samantha: Who's the farmer with the dells?
Carrie: Young MacDonald?
Samantha: Oooh! E-I-E-I-O!

Carrie: What's he doing out here?
Samantha: Pushups, by the look of it.

Carrie: The only thing that I have ever successfully made in the kitchen is a mess. And several little fires.

Samantha: These [fast food apple pies] are surprisingly delicious!
Carrie: I konw! Why would anybody go to the trouble of making one when you can buy one that is so perfect and individually sized?

Episode: Belles of the Balls
Miranda: There's nothing to be embarrassed about; he's still got one.
Carrie: Miranda, they come in a set. Like earrings.

Carrie: I'm thinking balls are to men what purses are to women. It's just a little bag, but we feel naked in public without it.

Charlotte: We're having Trey's sperm tested.
Miranda: Is it not doing well in school?

Miranda: Men, wait, let me rephrase that, some men...
Carrie: Good move, counselor. That will look much better on the court transcripts of this dinner.

Episode: Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda
Miranda: He only has one ball and I have a lazy ovary. In what world does that create a baby? ... It's like the special olympics of conception!

Aidan: Well, if Miranda doesn't want the kid, can't she just give it to Charlotte?
Carrie: No... it's not like a sweater.

Samantha on the Hermes Birken bag: Oh honey, it's not so much the style, it's what carrying it means!
Carrie: It means you're out four thousand bucks.

Carrie: I made him swear on Chanel.
Miranda: Well, as long as he took the oath of fabric!

Samantha: If it's so hard to get pregnant, how do you account for the number of crying children on planes?

Episode: Just Say Yes
Carrie: Maybe this is all happening because my building is going co-op. Is this a real estate merger? Am I a real estate bride?
Miranda: If there were unlimited apartments in Manhattan, we'd all be single forever.

Charlotte: We're not barren, we're reproductively challenged!

Episode: The Good Fight
Carrie: Someone once said that two halves make a whole. And when two halves move in together, it makes a whole lot of stuff.

Carrie: I used to think those people who sat alone at Starbucks writing on their laptops were pretentious posers. Now I know: They are people who have recently moved in wtih someone.

Episode: All That Glitters
Carrie: Are you two together?
Anthony: No, but I'm hoping we will be around 3:30 [am].

Charlotte: I can't believe you took ecstasy from a stranger!
Samantha: It's not a stranger, it was a friend of my friend Bobby's friend Bobby.
Miranda: Oh, well then we know it's safe. Will we be going to a rave later?

Stanford: I saw the way you were behaving. You're sleeping with the beautiful man!
Carrie: The beautiful man is gay.
Stanford: Damn! An accent always throws me.

Charlotte: Aaah! It's gay porn!!
Miranda: What was your first clue?
Charlotte: You said we were watching an independent film! I brought biscotti!
Episode: Change OF A Dress
Carrie: Ooh! I forgot about the washer and dryer! I've been dreaming about that my whole New York life!

Carrie: You know what they say: If it ain't broke...
Samantha: Don't marry it.

Miranda: It's amazing. In a courtroom, reasonable doubt can get you off for murder. In an engagement, it makes you feel like a bad person.

Episode: Ring A Ding Ding
Carrie: Great love stories are supposed to end with tragedy and tears, not papers from the law offices of Gold & Vogel.

Carrie: I'm homeless! I'll be a bag lady! A Fendi bag lady, but a bag lady!!

Miranda: "Best" is the worst.
Samantha: "Best" is like saying "not love."

Woman on the street, to Carrie: Why do you have to take the bus if you're on the bus?

Carrie: I've spent ,000 on shoes and I have noplace to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!
Episode: A 'Vogue' Idea
Samantha: Oh honey, I have tricks she hasn't even seen!
Carrie: And those trix ain't for kids!
Episode: I Heart NY

Carrie, to Big: You can't leave New York! You're the Chrysler Building! The Chrysler Building would be all wrong in a vineyard!

Samantha: Sex with an ex can be depressing. If it's good, you don't have it anymore. If it's bad, you just had sex with an ex.

Charlotte: Miranda has a son!
Samantha: Just what the world needs: another man.

Carrie: Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away.

Episode: Anchors Away
Charlotte: I read it in a magazine.
Miranda: What magazine? Convenient Theories For You Monthly?

Carrie: It's over for me. Here lies Carrie. She had two loves and lots 'o' shoes.

Samantha: I can't even be around that man. He's dangerous and toxic.
Carrie: So he's manthrax?

Episode: Unoriginal Sin

Samantha: My friends don't believe you.
Richard: Am I dating your friends?
Samantha: With your track record I wouldn't put it past you.

Miranda: He has to get baptized and wear a dress.
Carrie: Baby's first drag show!

Carrie: So you're a pessimist, right?
Miranda: Have we met?

Episode: Luck Be An Old Lady
Carrie: People go to casinos for the same reason they go on blind dates: hoping to hit the jackpot. But mostly, you just wind up broke or alone in a bar.

Miranda: Today's the babynurse's last day. From now on you'll have to book me a year in advance.
Carrie: Wow, you're like Nobu.

Episode: Cover Girl
Stanford: Before I tell you, you have to promise not to judge.
Carrie: Do I judge?
Stanford: We all judge. That's our hobby. Some people do arts and crafts; we judge.
Episode: Plus One Is The Loneliest Number
Charlotte: He should've mentioned her earlier.
Samantha: But not too early. I hate it when men do that. "I have a girlfriend." Calm down, I just asked if that seat was taken!

Miranda: I didn't tell Walker I had a baby.
Charlotte: How could you not mention it?
Miranda: It didn't come up! If Walker had asked me directly, "have you given birth recently," I would've said... first of all, define "recently."

Enid: That's the key to having it all: stop expecting it to look like what you thought it was going to look like. It's true of the fall lines, and it's true of relationships.

Stanford: I don't want to seem like a nobody now that I have a somebody.
Carrie: Oh, so it's okay to be a nobody when you have nobody?
Stanford: Well, apparently you're nobody until somebody loves you.

Episode: Critical Condition
Miranda: No, he's not sick. He's not hungry, he's not teething, he just wants to scream. I'm doing everything I can but I can't please him. If he was 35 this is when we would break up.

Miranda: This thirteen pound meatloaf is pushing me over the edge!

Carrie: Damn! Why is that girl still bothering me?
Samantha: Honey, you have to let it go. If I worried what every bitch in New York was saying about me, I'd never leave the house.
Episode: I Love A Charade
Episode: To Market, To Market



Episode: Pick-A-Little, Talk-A-Little

Episode: Lights, Camera, Relationship

Episode: The Post-It Always Sticks Twice
[Miranda can fit into her "skinny jeans."]
Charlotte: How'd you do it?
Miranda: Well, I got pregnant, became a single mother, and stopped having any time to eat.
Samantha: Oh, that's a diet I won't be trying.

Charlotte: I just feel kind of silly that I made such a big fuss about my ring earlier.
Samantha: Oh, honey, a diamond that big deserves a parade!

Episode: The Catch
Carrie: Stanny, are you watching? I'm about to try a catch!
Stanford: Maybe you should quit while you're a... live?

Carrie: I tried the trapeze yesterday for that piece that I'm writing.
Charlotte: I could never! I have the most terrible fear of heights.
Carrie: Well, I do not. You've seen my shoes.

Miranda: He was funny. And cute.
Carrie: Yeah, and in town for a week! What's the point?
Samantha: That IS the point! It's the best possible scenario, because you know he's leaving.
Carrie: But it's like whatever happens, there's an expiration date. It's expiration dating.

Anthony: I want nothing but lilies on the huppah. The theme is yentil chic!

Charlotte, wearing her wedding dress: Is it okay?
Anthony: Okay? You're Audrey Hepburn...owitz!

Samantha: Listen, when you're on location, don't do anything I wouldn't do.
Smith: What's that rule out?
Samantha: Mmmm, there are things. Karaoke, I don't do that.

Carrie, about Steve's new girlfriend: Well, did you see her?
Miranda: Just her shoes and her nails.
Carrie: And?
Miranda: Both acrylic.

Episode: A Woman's Right To Shoes
Stanford: I also got them a CD of Free To Be... You And Me.
Carrie: I loved Marlo Thomas! I played that album all through the fifth grade. I wanted to run as fast as the wind.
Stanford: I played "William Wants A Doll" so many times I almost turned my little sister into a gay man!

Carrie, after being told to take off her shoes: But... this is an outfit!

Samantha: I'm so sick of these people with their children. I'm telling you, they're everywhere! Sitting next to me in first class, eating at the next table at John Schu— [A child runs by.] Look at that. This place is for double cappuccinos, NOT double strollers. [Glances at Miranda.] I'm sorry.
Miranda: Hey, no need to apologize. I wouldn't bring Brady here. Mommy needs two hands to eat her eight-dollar cake!
Charlotte: You're not going to defend children?
Miranda: No, I don't like any children but my own.

Carrie: She's become this whole other person. It's like she's had two caesarians and a lobotomy.

Carrie: And how are [your chicken pox] today?
Miranda: Biblical. There's literally a pox on my house.

Episode: Boy, Interrupted
Miranda: I just got Brady to sleep.
Dr. Leeds: Now, do you sing to him?
Miranda: Only if he's been bad.

Charlotte: You're marrying him!
Carrie: Will you stop? He doesn't even live in New York, he lives in Denver.
Charlotte: People move! It would be so romantic.
Carrie: Or tragic. Seriously. If I had the guy in high school, what have I been doing for the last twenty years?

Stanford: God, I hate him. Come on, we're going over there.
Marcus: Why?
Stanford: Because you're in a tank top.

Charlotte: Did I ever tell you I was a cheerleader?
Miranda: No, because you knew I would mock you endlessly.

Episode: The Domino Effect
Carrie: Bet you can't get steaks like this in your little Napa village, now can ya?
Big: Where do you think this cattle comes from, a ranch on Canal Street?

[Carrie is crying in a restaurant.]
Big: She's fine. Can you bring some extra napkins... and some violins?

Charlotte: Big is in town?
Carrie: Yeah, he's here for a little heart thing.
Miranda: What, is he on the list to get one?

Samantha: He did something to me that was so perverse! Okay, I'm just going to say it. He tried to hold my hand.
Carrie: You mean to tell me that Smith is a hand-holder? And to think he once served us food.

Carrie: Honey, if it hurts so much, why are we going shopping?
Samantha: I have a broken toe, not a broken spirit.

Big: So I guess this is what we'd be like in our 70's. No sex and board games.
Carrie: Aww, you're already thinking about your next birthday?

Episode: One
[A performance artist is starving herself and refusing to speak while on public display.]
Aleksandr: You don't think it's significant?
Carrie: Oh please! There are depressed women all over New York doing the exact same thing as her and not calling it art. I mean, if you put a phone up on that platform, it's just a typical Friday night waiting for some guy to call.

Episode: Let There Be Light
Samantha: Don't play "hard to get" with a man who's hard to get.

Charlotte, testing fragrances: Maybe cucumber basil?
Samantha: Why would you want to smell like a salad?

Charlotte: How about pomegranate patchouli?
Carrie: No, you need something classic, clean.
Miranda: With just a hint of neuroses.

Anthony: Can we please talk about something else? I'll give you a hundred dollars if you say something bitchy about someone we know.

Charlotte: Imagine, being blind and not being able to see a beautiful day like today. Can you think of anything worse?
Anthony: Stonewashed jeans and a matching jacket.

Episode: The Ick Factor
Charlotte: Well, it all sounds very old world to me. Very 18th century Russia.
Carrie: Yes, and I live in New York City circa now. I think it's romantic when someone offers me a seat on the subway.

Carrie: You know that song he wrote for me?
Miranda: Yeah. Ick.
Carrie: Well, it had a name. La Femme Avec Le Yeux Lumineuse.
Charlotte: The Girl With The Eyes That Sparkle?
Samantha: What's French for ick?
Miranda: Eek!

Samantha: I had a cold, hard dose of reality. From this! Look!
Charlotte: You're in In Touch magazine?
Carrie: And that's your dose of reality?

Charlotte: I can't believe you would actually consider having a boob job.
Miranda: I can't believe you went to Planet Hollywood.

Carrie: How about I read you a little bit of my favorite poetry?
Aleksandr: Please.
Carrie: [Reads from Vogue] "Cocktails at Tiffanys calls for classic charm. Oscar de la Renta sleeveless silk full skirted dress with black patent leather bow belt." Now that is pure poetry.

Carrie: So yesterday, the Russian read me a Russian poem. But, you know, in English.
Miranda: Are you just making this stuff up now?
Carrie: No. And this might sound crazy but I don't think it's an act. I think he actually means it.
Miranda: That doesn't make it okay! Has he considered your feelings?

Aleksandr: Are you okay?
Carrie: No! I'm an American. You gotta take it down a notch.

Episode: Catch-38
Carrie: It was hard to be huffy in a cloth robe but somehow Samantha pulled it off.

Miranda on Magda: She's made plans! She's going to Nannypalooza or something.

Charlotte on Brady: I'll take him! I'd love to take him! He's adorable.
Miranda: It's four days. Adorable stops after a day and a half.

Charlotte: Is it safe? Are there stairs? What about sharp edges?
Carrie: Charlotte, it's a death trap. We're just going to strap a pillow around the kid and hope for the best.

Carrie: Brady knocked the vase over.
Aleksandr: That's pathetic, blaming the baby.

Charlotte: Why should you give up having a baby for a man you hardly know?
Carrie: Why should I give up a man for a baby I hardly know I want?

Miranda: I'm in the woods in my negligee and my cell phone only has two bars left. HELP!

Miranda: Last night Steve and I held hands for an hour and a half watching... the fire. He was looking into my eyes; I was looking for the remote.

Episode: Out Of The Frying Pan
Aleksandr: I love your house. It's so you.
Carrie: Small and artless?
Aleksandr: No, warm and lovely.

Aleksandr: It was a rodent. You don't want this in your house.
Carrie: Well, maybe he was just crossing through to get to the much nicer apartment next door.

Carrie: At least it didn't happen in a room I actually use, like my closet.

Miranda: Samantha, I have to say, you are amazing.
Samantha: I am. And if you love me in chemo, wait till you see me at Smith's movie premiere. I'm getting a hot dress, fantastic shoes... I'm going to kick cancer and that red carpet's ass!

Cab driver: Where to?
Miranda: Um, Brooklyn, please.
Cab driver: I don't go to Brooklyn.
Miranda: Yeah, neither do I.

Carrie: Is this who I'm seeing—a man who kills mice and optimism?

Wig store clerk: Would you like natural hair or acrylic?
Samantha: Sweetheart, does it look like I do acrylic?

Samantha: What if it comes back? I could die, Carrie. With really bad hair.

Samantha: Maybe I should just shave it all off.
Carrie: Yeah, you could be one of those fantastic bald women who's all about earrings.
Samantha: I'd better not look like Kojak.

Miranda: Oh my God... I'm married.

Carrie: Samantha is my friend. She's my family. My insides. She will be fine because she has to be fine. That's how important she is to me.

Charlotte: It's just a subway ride away.
Carrie: A subway that goes underwater! That's not normal!

Miranda: Why do I think living in Manhattan is so fantastic?
Carrie: Because it is.

Carrie: It would be childish of us to deny that our lives weren't changing. But for this night, none of us were going anywhere. That's the thing about really good friends and a really great Manhattan.

Episode: The Cold War

Anthony: That is the fourth person to stop and gush. I swear that dog's getting cruised more than me, and we're on the corner of gay and gay.

Miranda: I had to walk all the way from the subway in these heels. My feet are killing me.
Steve: Why didn't you just carry them and wear sneakers like everyone else?
Miranda: Stop. You can take me out of Manhattan but you can't take me out of my shoes.

Stanford: Let's say hello [to Smith].
Marcus: I'm nervous. He's so incredibly hot in that Gus VanSant movie.
Stanford: Oh! But can he pull off a fuscia Oswald Botang shirt?

Samantha: Well, I decided to turn a little hair loss into a lot of hair gain.
Stanford: Oh, you're gettin' wiggy with it!

Charlotte: Smith is not gay.
Miranda: Of course not!
Charlotte: So this makes you his beard.
Samantha: I'm a beard in a wig.

Miranda: I don't talk to Steve about my work.
Carrie: And he doesn't mind?
Miranda: I think he prefers it that way.
Carrie: But you guys share everything else.
Miranda: Because we're in Brooklyn. There's no one else to talk to!

Samantha: Everyone's talking about me! In the blink of a tabloid I went from Demi to Liza.

Carrie: Oh, you are a good friend. All the way from Brooklyn to see a bunch of dogs run in a circle.
Miranda: She came to watch my baby get baptized, I came to watch her baby get judged.

Smith: Are you sure you want to do this?
Samantha: It worked for Paris Hilton. I need to set the record straight—literally!

Miranda: Elizabeth Taylor got gang-banged in the park?
Samantha: Oh god, that's so 80's!

Episode: Splat!

Aleksandr: Is this really how one finds love?
Carrie: No, it's just what we do to distract ourselves until the real thing comes along.

Charlotte, about Elizabeth Taylor: She's getting a little fat.
Pet store clerk: Oh, she's not fat.
Charlotte: You're right, that's an ugly term. She's... full figured.

Samantha: We're not going to encourage you to cross an ocean. We're selfish bitches who like you in New York!

Carrie: Maybe I can't leave New York. I don't know how I'd do someplace else.
Samantha: Believe me, your fabulousness would translate.

Carrie: He's very sweet. And smart!
Enid: He's a Hobbit!

Samantha: This funeral is better than fashion week!

Charlotte: I didn't know Lexi had so many friends.
Carrie: Well, she wasn't always so tragic. Remember the 80's? She was the it girl.
Samantha: I thought I was the it girl.
Miranda: Well, it's your word against a dead girl's, so—you win!

Episode: An American Girl In Paris (Part Une)
Samantha: Would you like another cocktail?
Carrie: No, no, no, I can't be drunk on the plane. I want to arrive stunning and impossibly fresh looking.

Carrie: Today I had a thought. What if I... what if I had never met you?

Carrie: I fell. I fell in Dior. So I decided that the more I purchased the less they'd think of me as the American who fell in Dior.
Aleksandr: They don't think like that.
Carrie: Well, not anymore they don't. This is the shopping equivalent of a lobotomy.

Big: You're the loves of her life and a guy's just lucky to come in fourth.

Episode: An American Girl In Paris (Part Deux)
Charlotte: I cannot believe this is finally happening. I hope nothing goes wrong.
Anthony: Well, if it does, I know some gays who got a Guatemalan kid for like a hundred bucks.

Carrie: I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love. And I don't think that love is here in this expensive suite in this lovely hotel in Paris.

Big: It took me a really long time to get here, but I'm here. Carrie, you're the one.

Carrie: Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous.

Well, that's it!! TBS is still showing SATC at 9pm on Tues. and 10pm on Wed.


Trivia and Bloopers


  • The medicine cabinet in Carrie's apartment was first spied by Sarah Jessica Parker at a flea market shortly before filming began on the series. She and Matthew Broderick didn't buy it but reconsidered. When they went back, the cabinet was already sold to "some TV show". When she showed up for filming, the medicine cabinet was there.

  • The naturally blond Cynthia Nixon dyed her hair red to play Miranda on the show.

  • In the final episode, we finally learn the first name of "Mr. Big" (played by Chris Noth) - John. However, his last name is never given.

  • The final word spoken in the very last episode was "Fabulous".

  • The show became so popular that a tour was setup to view the New York City locations of the series by bus.


  • The funeral of Lexi Featherstone ('Kristen Johnston' ) in the episode "Splat!" takes place at St. Mark's Church in the east village on a snowy day. As there was no snow on the ground, HBO trucked in a large amount to use for the filming. Two days after filming, it snowed eight inches.

  • From the very first season up to the 12th episode of the 4th season, in the opening credits, Sarah Jessica Parker's name was shown with the World Trade Center towers behind her name. After the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001 and the collapse of the towers, her name then appeared with the Empire State Building in the background. The same thing happened with the show's main title.

  • In the episode "Four Women and a Funeral", Samantha is a social outcast. In the original showing, she is returned to social acceptance by meeting John Kennedy Jr. After his death, she now meets Leonardo DiCaprio.

  • Kim Cattrall turned down the role of Samantha Jones twice before being convinced by Darren Star's friend to give it a try and shoot the pilot episode.

  • The Versace "dress of a thousand layers" that Carrie wore in the final episode has a retail price of ,000.


  • Continuity: In the opening credits, a close-up of the bus that splashed Carrie shows that it was full of people. But as the bus rounds the corner, it is totally empty.

  • Continuity: In "Secret Sex", Carrie and Samantha are both pinning up Carrie's bus poster on a wall. On Samantha's side, one of the pins falls out and the corner of the poster rolls up. In the next shot the corner is neatly pinned to the wall but no one had corrected the poster.

  • Crew or equipment visible: in Season 2, ep. 13 ("Games people play"), crew can be seen reflected on the TV in the back when Carrie writes her article

  • Factual errors: In Episode 13 of season 4 ("The Good Fight"), the display on Samantha's cell phone shows 07/20/01 as the date. When she answers the phone, she says "Richard, it's Sunday." July 20, 2001, was a Friday.

  • Continuity: In the first episode of the first season Mr. Big's car windows aren't tinted when he offers Carrie a ride. When she gets out and asks him a question, they are tinted.

  • Continuity: In episode "Sex and the Country", Steve and Miranda are having an argument in Miranda's apartment. As Steve goes to put his shoes on to leave, in one shot we see him wearing glasses while in the next shot he isn't.

  • Continuity: In episode 5 of the first season, "The Power of Female Sex," when Carrie is sitting with Amalita and being introduced to the French architect, a man with a dark blue suit and purple tie is seen approaching Carrie from behind three times in a row.

  • Factual errors: In the episode "The Ick Factor" (season 6), Samantha picks up Carrie at her apartment in a cab for Miranda and Steve's wedding. Carrie is "a hundred blocks" out of Samantha's way, but the meter on the cab only reads .80.

  • Continuity: In the fetish episode when Big goes to Paris for a few days for work, he returns to New York and Carrie shows up at his door with McDonalds. In the kitchen, the position of her bag and the french fries (both on the counter top) changes constantly throughout the scene.
