    Trivia (1)

    • In this episode when Carrie and Charlotte are at the bar and Charlotte is hoping to meet a guy. A guy named J.J. comes over and asks if he can "buy those sweep lips a drink?". Later in the series this same guy will appear as a gossip columnist who writes about Richard Wright "canoodling" with a bunch of different women while he's dating Samantha. It seems weird that if J.J. really was a gossip columnist in New York that Carrie and Charlotte wouldn't have known him already.
