  • Episode Description
  • Carrie thinks her relationship with Big has evolved enough to the place where she can leave stuff at his place. She purposely leaves a few items on his bathroom, only to be surprised by Big the next morning with a bag with all her items in it. Carrie is confused and tries to discuss it with him, but realizes she doesn't have to leave her marks on his place to know they're in a relationship. Meanwhile, Miranda feels her biological clock ticking when her gynecologist tells her one of her ovaries has stopped production. She starts taking hormones and going out on dates with guys she'd never go – like her co-worker with the hair plugs – but a discussion about freezing eggs leads her to realize she's only 33 and still has one ovary working. Samantha has the chance of getting back to the one guy who broke her heart, but can't resist the temptation of jumping to bed with him. Her vengeance plan goes down the drain when he dumps her and she realizes she hasn't evolved past having feelings quite yet. And Charlotte finds a piece of the male evolution of her own: a man who could be either a gay straight or a straight gay. The difference? The gay straight is nothing but the product of overexposure to the high life in Manhattan, but is still straight. Confused, she decides to go forward with the guy, but realizes her male side isn't as evolved as Stephan's female side.moreless

    • Carrie: (voiceover) The gay straight man was a new strain of heterosexual male spawned in Manhattan as the result of overexposure to fashion, exotic cuisine, musical theatre and antique furniture.

    • Miranda: Hey! I don't need to be lectured about science by a man who's doing a crop rotation on his forehead!

    • Carrie: In order to survive two decades of dating in New York, Samantha had become a powerful hybrid - the ego of a man trapped in the body of a woman.

    • Samantha: Relationships have been on a decline since women came out of the cave, looked around, and said, "This isn't so hard." Carrie: Okay, so you don't need a man, but you still want one. Samantha: Oh honey, I want more than one. Carrie: I can't decide whether you represent our future or our demise. Samantha: I am the future!

    • Carrie: If the things we leave behind become the archaeological relics of our sexual history, I should be able to leave something. Ancient man left cave drawings to prove they existed. I left a Hair Pro 1200, and I didn't stop at that. Man may have discovered fire, but woman discovered how to play with it.
