  • Quotes (14)

    • Carrie: The city was no longer a fantasy, it was real. And I knew now I wasn't searching for someone or somebody here. I was searching for me. Who I was. Who I wanted to be. Finding my voice wasn't going to be easy. But for the first time, in a long time, I thought it might be fun.

    • Sebastian: So you're the princess who slays her own dragons.
      Carrie: Well, somebody has to. It might as well be me.

    • Carrie: They say the key to being a writer is figuring out who you are. Finding your voice. Well that seemed to be the only thing I had found that day.

    • Carrie Bradshaw: I wasn't sure if it was a lie but I wanted it to be true.

    • Sebastian Kydd: I'm sorry.
      Carrie Bradshaw: For lying, or that you got caught?
      Sebastian Kydd: Both.
      Carrie Bradshaw: Finally, the truth.

    • Carrie: They say that the eyes are the window to a soul. That looking into someones eyes it to know the truth. To know what’s real. The same could be said for the city that never sleeps. It’s honest and totally awesome. Maybe I was lying to myself, but I felt like nothing could stop me or us. Except maybe Donna LaDonna and her minions. And me being grounded.

    • Carrie: Now I knew what it said on Sebastian's label: contents under pressure, handle with care. Unfortunately I never bothered to read it. That's the thing about labels, once in a while they tell us something we need to know. But most of the time they only make things worse. In reality nothing is as simple as the label we give it. The one thing you have to remember about labels, they only matter if you let them stick.

    • Carrie: Let's face it. Life is easier if you read the labels. Like, do not put in dryer. Expiration date: 1 week ago. Everything we wear, everything we eat, they all have labels. They same is true for everyone we know. Stoner. Class Clown. Well-meaning but ultimately clueless class counselor. And, the boy of my dreams.

    • The World Trade Center towers(1970-2001)were not included in any of the scenes of the pilot, even though it fits within the show's time frame. This was done deliberately by the producers so it wouldn't be possible painful reminder for any of the audience.
