EDIT
Carrie goes to the country with Aidan and ends up accidently inviting Mr. Big when Willow breaks up with him. He calls Carrie and tells her that Willow dumped him and she says that she wishes that he could come over but it's too far but he's willing to take the long drive to see her. She gives him the directions and then tells Aidan who isn't pleased to hear that Mr. Big is coming over. He says that it's like a super hero thing and Mr. Big is Batman while he's the Green Hornet. Mr. Big gets drunk and Carrie won't let him drive so Aidan lets him sleep on the couch. The following morning Mr. Big tries to apologize to Aidan but Aidan starts a fight with him and Carrie steps in to stop them. It turns out that they really get along.

  • Absolutely brilliant.

    9.6
    This particular episode has got to be one of the most classic installments of the entire series. So many moments occur here that there are actually too many to list.

    Samantha\\\'s standing up for herself at the job interview, and then breaking down in the elevator.

    Miranda\\\'s \\\"Ford Pinto\\\" allusions in reference to Steve\\\'s potential new prosthetic testicle.

    Charlotte and Trey having sex in the little room at the fertility clinic.

    Of course, Carrie and Aidan\\\'s conversation wherein Big is Batman with all the gadgets and the cape, and Aidan is the Green Hornet with his trusty side kick Kato the wonder puppy.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Carrie: I'm thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It's just a little bag but we'd feel naked in public without it.

    • Samantha: "Emotional" is just code for "I don't want to hire a woman."
      Miranda: They're like that at my firm. They're afraid you're going to cry over a legal brief.
      Carrie: HAVE you ever cried over a legal brief?
      Miranda: Yes, but only in the privacy of my own office.

    • Carrie (about Aidan): Maybe I should try to get Big and him and me together.
      Miranda: Did you have a big plate of crazy for lunch?

    • Miranda: Men, wait, let me rephrase that, some men...
      Carrie: Good move, counselor. That will look much better on the court transcripts of this dinner.
