As she leaves, she bumps into a mystery man whom she will later see again.
Miranda is set up with Carrie's friend Skipper and though she hates him, he really likes her. Charlotte thinks she's found a great guy in Capote Duncan until she tells him she has to be up early in the morning and he asks her to split a cab so he can go to Chaos and get laid.
