  • Episode Description
  • Carrie wonders why she has never become friend with an ex-boyfriend, and decides that if she must start with someone, that someone mind as well be Mr. Big. She calls him up for inviting him over for a dinner, where he breaks the news that he's proposed to his new girlfriend, Natasha. Shocked, Carrie storms out of the restaurant, shouting and yelling about how with her he had a commitment problem for two years, but had found no difficulties on proposing to what's-her-name after five months. Meanwhile, the other gals try to find friends themselves. After running away (literally) from Steve, Miranda receives a visit from him in her place and ends up in bed with him – they're friends who have sex. Charlotte tries to become friends with a horse and overcome her trauma caused by her best friend – a horse – who threw her from his back when she was a child. And Samantha faces a challenge: she meets a man with a huge penis. So big that she isn't sure she can make it. When the doubt becomes a certain, she proposes they stay just friends – for the safety of her own vagina!moreless

    • Carrie: (Miranda has just told Carrie that Steve wants to be exclusive and that she's feeling conflicted about it) Time for the old list. Miranda: The list? Carrie: Things you like about Steve, things you don't like about Steve. Then see which list is longer. Miranda: That seems so judgmental. Carrie: Miranda, you are judgmental. Try putting it to good use.

    • Carrie: Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with.

    • Miranda: I am shitty. You would never do anything that shitty. Steve: What do you call showing up at your apartment in the middle of the afternoon and calling you shitty? Miranda: Yeah, that was pretty shitty!

    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: When Carrie and Big are having lunch and they talk about Big's music, right after she says: "ten minutes after we're awake", her hand holding the knife is on the left side of her cosmopolitan, but when the shot changes, her hand is on the right side, without time to have changed her position.

    • Goof: Samantha says that Black Widow spiders bite the heads of their mates when they're through. Actually, it's the female praying mantis who tries to bite off her mate's head after sex. The black widow spider just stings and poisons her mate.

    • During the scene where Samantha attempts to have sex with Mr. Cocky for the second time ("after 2 advance yoga classes and a hit of the best hawaiian gold she could find"), you can clearly see that she is wearing flesh colored panties.

    Allusions (3)

    • Carrie: You broke up with James because he was too small. This guy's too big. Who are you, Goldicocks? Samantha: Yep! I'm looking for one, that's juuuust right. Is a reference to the very popular 18th century children's fairy tale from England "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," about a young girl who enters the home of a family of bears and causes mischief.

    • Carrie: Sweetie, it's a penis not Mount Everest. Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world with a elevation of 8844.43 meters and is located in Nepal in the Himalaya Mountain Range.

    • Carrie: Your girl is lovely, Hubbell. This is a quote from the movie The Way We Were, In the film, Katie and Hubbell fall in love despite their political and social differences and get married. Hubbell has an affair, leading Katie to see that Hubbell is not the person that she idealized and admired when she fell in love with him, and they decide to part ways. Years later they accidentally meet on the streets of New York City. With Hubbell is a beautiful woman who exemplifies the WASP ideal. Katie and Hubbell share a tender moment where it is clear that he is hurt that they are no longer together and believes that he was at his best when he was with her and feels that no one will believe in him or see as much promise in him as Katie did. They leave each other with fond memories of "the way they were."
