Episode Summary

EDIT
Upset with the idea of having to move out because her building is going co-op, Carrie faces an even bigger problem: Aidan suggested that they mov in together after he bought both Carrie's and the next door apartment to make one big place for them. It's a big step that needs some thinking time, which is not helped when Carrie accidentally discovers an engagement ring among Aidan's stuff. This makes her question if Aidan is really "the one" and if she is ready for it. But then again, are we ever ready? An unexpected bump into Big doesn't really help her, especially when the ring she saw has nothing to do with her – never mind that it was Miranda who helped him pick it out. Finally, when she's not expecting, Aidan kneels and pops the question. The right timing, the right place – and most important, the right ring – make Carrie say yes. Meanwhile, Miranda faces a proposal too, after she tells Steve she's pregnant with his child. But, unlike Carrie, Miranda is definitely not ready for marriage – especially with a secondhand ring – and so they decide to raise the kid together, but separated. Samantha flies off to Rio with her new boss and doesn't wait long before entering the mile-high club, while Charlotte anticipates herself and enrolls to adopt a Mandarin baby.moreless

    • NOTES (3)

      • Music:
        "Leaky Faucet Skank" by Sad Rockets, heard as the show opens on a shot of the Statue of Liberty.
        "Blues By The Pound" by Bob Christianson, Aidan listens to the radio as he cooks.
        "A Bumpin' Groove" by Bob Christianson, as Carrie thinks about when it's right as she types her column.
        "Deep and Warm" by Flying Pop's, as Samantha arrives late for her meeting with Richard Wright.
        "Flying to Frisco" by Flying Pop's, as Carrie takes Aidan out to dinner.
        "Second Time Around" by Yo-Yo Ma, as Aidan proposes to Carrie.
        "Rua Escondida" by Black Mighty Orchestra, as Carrie meets Samntha for a drink and tells her she's engaged.

      • The scene where Aidan proposes to Carrie was shot on the street Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn lived. They were standing by the window watching the shoot.

      • This is the last episode to feature any footage of the World Trade Center. Sarah Jessica Parker decided she didn't want upset for the people of NY so she changed the opening credits after this episode.
