  • Quotes

    • Kevin: Come on, Carrie, I hate that we're fighting. I'd hate it if I lost you as a friend. (long pause, Carrie comes out of the bathroom stall)
      Carrie: That was really sweet.
      Kevin: Which part? I'll say it again.
      Carrie: No, please... it was a nice moment, let's not ruin it.
      Kevin: So we're okay?
      Carrie: Yeah. Just... just don't call me a flake, okay?

    • Alex: Carrie, you haven't changed a bit. You're still beautiful, smart, charming... and way too exhausting.
      Carrie: You - You think I'm exhausting?
      Alex: Yeah. I could never keep up with you. I'd sort of forgotten that until just now. Uh, listen, I need to go check on, um... (Pause) Oh, hell. I just gotta go.

    • Paul: (Locked in the basement) Uh, hello? Anybody hear me? I'm locked in here! (Drops club soda downstairs) Okay, can't open that for a while.

    • Paul: (As the band plays) You stay here and party like it's 1999! Oh. It is.

    • Kevin: (About Carrie, to Alex) But if I may be serious for a moment here, Alex. I believe everyone in this world has a soul mate, and this beautiful, vivacious, and, dare I say, passionate woman here is mine. (Notices a waiter with appetizers) Ooh, crab cakes. (Leaves)

    • Josh: Hey, Mary-Kate.
      Mary-Kate: Hey, Josh, you made it.
      Josh: Are you kidding? This is our first paying gig.
      Mary-Kate: We're not paying.
      Josh: Then it's our first gig!

    • Kevin: (About Alex) Chanteuse? He owns Chanteuse?
      Carrie: Yeah, you've heard of it?
      Kevin: Yes, I've heard of it. I tried to get a reservation the minute I found out it was opening.
      Paul: Did you get one?
      Kevin: I sure did. Now I've only got 3 years to find a date.

    • Paul: (To Carrie) You got engaged? Why didn't you tell me? Oh, probably because I'm not invited to the wedding, right? No, okay, that...
      Carrie: Paul, I'm not really engaged. I'm just pretending to be.
      Paul: Oh. Well, then continue.

    • Kevin: Sorry for dumping all this research on you at the last minute, Paul.
      Paul: (On Kevin's computer) It's no problem. I can come by Friday night to finish it up.
      Kevin: Give up your Friday night? Doesn't a single guy like you have something to do?
      Paul: Well, yeah, but I can tape it.

    • Carrie: And I'm engaged.
      Alex: Congratulations. Who's the lucky guy?
      Carrie: Oh, I don't think you know him. He's... (Looks over at Kevin at the table) He's a professor. Kevin Burke.
      Alex: Well, that's great.
      Carrie: Thank you. We're very happy.
      (Kevin comes and takes the newspaper from Carrie)
      Kevin: I guess you won't be needing this. (To Alex) Hi. Kevin Burke.
      Alex: Alex Reardon. Congratulations.
      Kevin: For what?
      Carrie: (Laughs) Our engagement, you silly goose.

    • (Carrie tries to leave without Alex noticing)
      Alex: Carrie?
      Carrie: Alex! Oh, my God!
      (Both laugh)
      Alex: It's great to see you. You look... (Pauses, sees Carrie a complete mess) It's great to see you.

    • Carrie: Oh, my God! It's Alex Reardon. I can't let him see me. (Covers herself with Kevin's newspaper)
      Kevin: Oh, you couldn't have done me that favor?
