    • Goof: When Carrie goes to the bathroom in Big's place, her hair is very messy. When you see her again, it's neatly straight. In the third shot, it's messy again.

  • Quotes

    • Carrie: (voiceover) The gay straight man was a new strain of heterosexual male spawned in Manhattan as the result of overexposure to fashion, exotic cuisine, musical theatre and antique furniture.

    • Miranda: Hey! I don't need to be lectured about science by a man who's doing a crop rotation on his forehead!

    • Carrie: In order to survive two decades of dating in New York, Samantha had become a powerful hybrid - the ego of a man trapped in the body of a woman.

    • Samantha: Relationships have been on a decline since women came out of the cave, looked around, and said, "This isn't so hard."
      Carrie: Okay, so you don't need a man, but you still want one.
      Samantha: Oh honey, I want more than one.
      Carrie: I can't decide whether you represent our future or our demise.
      Samantha: I am the future!

    • Carrie: If the things we leave behind become the archaeological relics of our sexual history, I should be able to leave something. Ancient man left cave drawings to prove they existed. I left a Hair Pro 1200, and I didn't stop at that. Man may have discovered fire, but woman discovered how to play with it.

    • Carrie: What is it about Big's apartment? Nothing ever sticks. It's like Teflon for women.

    • Charlotte: I've never done a number two at a guys place before.
      Samantha: Honey, you're so uptight you need to do a number seven.

    • Charlotte: I'm so confused. Is he gay or is he straight?
      Carrie: It's not that simple anymore. The real question is; is he a straight gay man, or is he a gay straight man?
      Samantha: Hopefully, he's a gay straight guy, which means he's straight with a lot of gay qualities. Whereas, a straight gay guy, is just a gay guy who plays sports and won't fuck you.

    • Carrie: Half my music collection was left behind by past boyfriends.
      Charlotte: I always give that stuff back.
      Carrie: Oh I don't. I consider it a parting gift. Thanks for playing and here's the latest from Hootie and the Blowfish.
      Samantha: They're sexual souvenirs.

    • Samantha: I never leave underwear at a guy's place, because I never see it again.
      Charlotte: What happens to it?
      Samantha: Nothing, I just never go back.
      Carrie: Doesn't that get a little expensive, disposing of lingerie everytime you sleep with a guy?
      Samantha: That's why I stopped wearing underwear on dates.
      Miranda: And that's why, I'm never borrowing a dress from you again.

    • Miranda: I know what this is, my right ovary has given up hope that I will ever get married and have kids. It's like working on a case that you know is gonna settle out of court. Why bother?
      Carrie: Well, the left one still believes.
      Miranda: I'm a biological underachiever. And it's ironic because that ovary went to Harvard.

    • Doctor: I got your test results back and everything looks fine.
      Miranda: Great!
      Doctor: Just one small thing, it appears you have a lazy ovary.
      Miranda: A lazy ovary?
      Doctor: Yes, your right ovary has stopped producing eggs.
      Miranda: Is it possible it's just on strike?

    • Charlotte: I once found another woman's underwear on a man's bed!
      Carrie: Maybe it was Samantha's!

    • Samantha: I need a new gynecologist. Do you like yours?
      Miranda: Not right now, no.
      Samantha: Well, at least she's a woman. I tried to go to a man, but it was just too strange. Having a guy spend all that time down there and then you leave, without an orgasm and a bill!
