  • Quotes

    • Carrie: The city was no longer a fantasy, it was real. And I knew now I wasn't searching for someone or somebody here. I was searching for me. Who I was. Who I wanted to be. Finding my voice wasn't going to be easy. But for the first time, in a long time, I thought it might be fun.

    • Sebastian: So you're the princess who slays her own dragons.
      Carrie: Well, somebody has to. It might as well be me.

    • Carrie: They say the key to being a writer is figuring out who you are. Finding your voice. Well that seemed to be the only thing I had found that day.

    • The World Trade Center towers(1970-2001)were not included in any of the scenes of the pilot, even though it fits within the show's time frame. This was done deliberately by the producers so it wouldn't be possible painful reminder for any of the audience.
