  • Carrie tries to start dating the man with whom she'd previously been having no strings attached sex. Charlotte books two dates for the same evening. Miranda dates a jerk.

    9.1
    I love this episode because I think every woman has been in the situation of having a friend that they fool around with. We all wonder if there must be some possibility of a relationship when the sex is great, but Carrie shows us that this isn't always the case. I also loved Charlotte's attempt at letting go and taking a risk with me which of course backfired when she lost both guys!

    Overall, this is one of my favorite episodes of Sex and the City. It's well-written, the acting is great, and the storylines are entertaining! Definitely one of the best!moreless
  • Probably one of the best, if not in top 10

    I think this show ranks right up there with the reason this show is one of the best in writing, humor, and acting. And I think it has to do with the episode's co-writer, Merrill Markoe, who has written a number of books on relationships. Her trademark wit and humor are prevalent throughout this episode, and having seen enough episodes written just by series creator Starr, I could probably pinpoint the lines he wrote--flat, bland. But then again, most of Starr's shows are from other people's work, and his solo outings are usually dead on arrival.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: After John and Carrie have sex for the first time, we see that John has a tattoo on his right arm. During their second date, when John climbs on Carrie, his tattoo is shifted to his left arm. In the next scene the tattoo is back in his right arm again.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Miranda: Can't we enjoy your success for one fucking second?
      Kevin: You know, it just pisses me off that you don't get how much pressure I'm under. You really do live in never-never land, don't you? By the way, if there's a difference between this hundred dollar bottle of champagne and the crap they sell for 29 bucks, it takes a more delicate palate than mine to detect it, I don't know.
      Miranda: Well, I like the champagne and the bread is fabulous. Oh my god, look at those flowers!
      Kevin: Don't piss me off.
      (Miranda puts on her jacket and gets up)
      Kevin: Where're you going?
      Miranda: Back to never-never land. And by the way, never-never call me again. Have a nice day.

    • Charlotte: Excuse me. Fuck buddy? What is a fuck buddy?
      Samantha: Oh, come on.
      Carrie: A fuck buddy is a guy you probably dated once or twice, but it didn't really go anywhere, but the sex was so great, you sorta of keep him on call.
      Samantha: He's like dial-a-dick.

    • Samantha: Carrie, you can't date your fuck buddy.
      Carrie: Say it a little louder. I don't think the old lady in the last row heard you.
      Samantha: You wanna take the only person who's in your life purely for sex, no strings attached, and turn him into a human being? Why?

    • Miranda: Isn't it funny, what I hate in life, I love in sex?
      Samantha: So, how about you just limit your contact with him to just sex.
      Miranda: Oh, that's a nice healthy relationship.

    • Miranda: The wierd thing is, when he tells me what to do in life it drives me crazy. But when he tells me what to do during sex, it really drives me crazy. It's totally hot!

    • Skipper: I totally should've seen this coming, but of course I didn't, because they wait for you to get relaxed and comfortable, before they bring the ice pick down right between your eyes.
      Carrie: Not all women, just the type of women you seem to be attracted too.
      Skipper: Over and over again.
