Episode Summary

Maybe having Aidan move in wasn't such a good idea, as Carrie feels her apartment overcrowded with stuff that isn't hers and noise that disturbs her alone time. Things only get worse once Carrie's old neighbor tells her she's not moving out until the end of the month, postponing Aidan's plans of breaking the walls. After a big fight, Carrie and Aidan spend three days without talking to each other, until she breaks and apologizes first. Turns out there's a lot more about moving in than just throwing out some one-time-worn clothes in order to make room for your future husband's stuff. Meanwhile, Samantha freaks out because she is actually falling in love with her perfect-dicked boss; Charlotte is extremely offended when Trey gives her a cardboard baby and Miranda wonders if having sex is going to hurt the baby.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • the display on Samantha's cell phone shows 07/20/01 as the date. When she answers the phone, she says "Richard, it's Sunday." July 20, 2001, was a Friday.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Carrie: I used to think those people who sat alone at Starbucks writing on their laptops were pretentious posers. Now I know, they are people who have recently moved in with someone.

      • Aidan: What do you need two doors for?
        Carrie: Well, cause you know sometimes I'm in a hurry I just brriinrr that one and it's my escape hatch in case.
        Aidan: In case what?
        Carrie: In case rapists come in my bedroom window, I see 'em in the mirror and I wriiirr! Gone.

      • Samantha: For the last time, the only thing I like about Richard is his big,throbbing, rock hard, perfect dick.
        Trey walks in to hear the end of her sentence.
        Trey:Whoops, forgot it was ladies night.

      • Charlotte: Don't talk to my friends like that! Without a baby they're all I have!
        Trey: And what am I?!

        Trey: It...was...funny!!
        Charlotte: NO IT WASN'T!!!

    • NOTES (7)

      • This is the first (and only) episode of the series which shows full frontal male nudity.

      • Because of the events of 9/11 there was a broadcasting break of 6 months so any footage of the twin towers was edited out and Sarah Jessica Parker felt it was inapparioate before then to show a show based in NY to a sensitive audience.

      • Music:
        "Tribute One" by Jeff Sharel, as Samantha shows up at Richard Wright's office.
        "An'Teallach" by Richard Worth, as Carrie goes to Starbucks to think and type.
        "Sweet Rose" by Louis Livingstone, as Samantha gazes at the rose Richard gave her and then throws it away.
        "Home Again" by Louis Livingstone, as Carrie goes home and apologizes to Aidan.
        "Seaweed" by Quincy Jones & Claus Ogerman, as Charlotte throws away the cardboard baby.
        "By Your Side" by Sade, as Samantha and Richard dance on the roof.

      • The rooftop scene was one of Kim Cattral's favorite scenes ever because she finally got to play Samantha with emotions.

      • When Samantha and Richard dance on the rooftop, the Twin Towers are editted out of the background because HBO wasn't sure how the public would respond.

      • Guest Robert John Burke was featured in the bomb "If Lucy Fell" starring Sarah Jessica Parker.

      • From this episode and beyond, the theme shots were altered, after the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers. Originally the title and Sarah Jessica Parker's name in the credits featured shots of the Twin Towers. The Towers were replaced by the Empire State Building.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Trey: Graham Pomander thinks he's snagged us orchestra seats to The Producers next Wednesday night.

        The Producers is a Broadway musical based on a 1968 Mel Brooks film comedy. It follows washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his timid accountant, Leo Bloom, who plot to become rich by convincing investors to support a supposedly certain flop of a musical called Springtime for Hitler.
        The show opened in April 2001, with Matthew Broderick (real life husband of Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker) playing the role of Leo Bloom and won a record twelve Tony awards its first year. Broderick left the show in March of 2002, but reprised his role in the movie version of the musical, which opens December 2005.
