    • At Holly's party, after Carrie congratulates Holly and wishes her well, she orders a gin and tonic from the bartender. You can see the bartender is holding a bottle of Stolichnaya Vodka.

    • Carrie complains about her engagement ring, but in an earlier episode we find out that Doug had found her a ring at an auction worth alot of money. They sell it and they both pick out a new ring. So she can't be upset with Doug for picking it because they both did.
