Episode Summary

EDIT
While Charlotte is frustrated that she's can't get pregnant despite her efforts with Trey, Miranda has the exact opposite problem: her lazy ovary combined with Steve's lonely ball somehow managed to get her pregnant in what Samantha called "a mercy fuck" ("he only had one ball", Miranda justifies). Although she's decided to have an abortion, she isn't sure about whether or not to tell Steve. Carrie thinks she should, despite never having told a waiter from The Saloon that she got an abortion herself after a drunk one night stand over a decade ago. In the waiting room of the abortion clinic, Miranda reconsiders her position as she wonder when she'll ever find time and chances to get pregnant again; so she decides to keep it. Meanwhile, Charlotte discovers her uterus is attacking Trey's sperm and considers in vitro fertilization; Carrie comes clean with Aidan about her past after meeting the waiter that knocked her up and Samantha has a hard time being the rep for Lucy Liu and finding a way to get the purse of her dreams.moreless

  • One of the best episodes in my opinion...

    9.2
    Coulda, woulda, shoulda is one of the best Sex and the City episodes in my opinion. It is exactly why i watch this series. It has comedic moments, heartfelt moments and great dialogue between the four main girls.



    It follows Charlottes attempt to have a baby, with her finding out that Trey is fertile and she, in fact, is not. Then comes the bombshell that Miranda has discovered that she is pregnant, by her ex Steve. Then all the four girls discuss pregnancy and abortion. Charlotte and Miranda argue as Miranda doesn't want the baby, but Charlotte is desperate for a baby.



    It shows the struggle that some women have to be mothers, but also considers the opposite, that some women just don't want to be mothers. all in all this is one of my favourite episodes!!moreless

      Carrie: You didn't use a condom?
      Miranda: He has one ball, and I have a lazy ovary! In what twisted world does that create a baby? It's like the Special Olympics of conception.

      Carrie: Sweetie, do you want me to leave?
      Miranda: No I can't have a baby. I could barely find the time to schedule this abortion.
