    • Miranda: I do want a baby eventually and my clock is running out. I mean, I've only got like a million viable eggs left. Carrie: Three hundred of which we just killed with those martinis at lunch.

    • Carrie: Two minutes later, Aidan still hadn't come back, suddenly my life was all about timing. All the right things, said at all the wrong times. My past, coming back way too fast, and my future taking way too long to come home.

    • Miranda: This isn't gonna work Steve. Steve: There's good stuff here. Miranda: Not enough. A baby would have been a quick fix for something that cannot be fixed.

    • Miranda: Okay, this is it. I'm so sick of you being the kid here, I cannot be in charge all the time. We're supposed to be equals, partners, you think we can have a baby, we can't even have a puppy together. Steve: We're just going through a rough patch here. Miranda: This isn't a rough patch Steve, this is it, all the time, and it's not good.

    • Miranda: Please go to sleep. Shh....please, I beg you, here...gives dog the alarm clock... this is supposed to be your mom's heart beating or something.
