    • Carrie: (voiceover) As I walked away, I started to think, how many cute smart single smokers are there left in the world, seven? I decided to do something I almost never do. Give a man my phone number. (Turning back to Patrick) Hi. This whole burn lawsuit I plan to initiate, it might get a little crazy so here is my phone number. You'll need that for your attorney. Or if you want to have coffee again sometime. (voiceover) I left feeling great. It was such a cute approach. How could he not call? (Days later, making bed with Miranda) Come on, how could he not call? It's been three days.
      Miranda: Give him twelve more hours, and then send him off to the Island of Lost Men.
      Carrie: I don't want to send him there. I like him.
      Miranda: Could you believe that someone actually had the nerve to call this color "Florentine Peach"?
      Carrie: I can't believe you had the nerve to spend this much on sheets!
      Miranda: It's an experiment. I'm trying to change my bed karma. I figure if I can make my bed a place I really want to be, others will feel the same way.
      Carrie: Ah, the Field of Dreams.
      Miranda: Exactly. If you build it, he will come.
      Carrie: The thing that gets me is that I'm not usually wrong about the phone number size up. I don't put it out there unless I'm pretty damn sure it's coming back.
      Miranda: I'm either really loving or hating the color.
      Carrie: He thinks I'm ugly.
      Miranda: Oh my god, get a grip. A guy doesn't call you for three days and you're ugly?
      Carrie: What's your point?
      Miranda: Pillow case! (Carrie tosses it to Miranda) It's amazing. We can feel totally good about ourselves, and then it all goes out the window if the guy doesn't mirror that right back to us. (looking at the pillow case) This is a little weird thing here. Damn it, does everything I bring into this bedroom have to have a flaw?
      Carrie: Ha ha.
      (Miranda hits Carrie with the pillow)
