Carrie, Carrie, Carrie (Part Deux):

Throughout Sex and the City (the television series), there are moments which I consider to be so amazing I have to spend a whole entry talking about them.

Especially when they relate to my favorite gal.

Season 1 (episode 3): Carrie tags along for a weekend in the Hamptons with her friend--who happens to be half of a married couple. When Carrie accidentally has a full-frontal encounter when her friend's husband, she is sent packing.

She wonders, "Is there is a secret cold war between marrieds and singles?"

Season 2 (episode 16): Carrie is asked to be a part of a magazine feature highlighting single people in the city. She spends half of the episode assuming it will be “Single & Fabulous!” but when the magazine hits the stands, she finds herself on the cover of “Single & Fabulous?” (Note the question mark).

"That question mark is hostile." The girls decide it is okay to be single.

Season 2 (episode 30): The end of the season brings about the comparisons of The Way We Were and the Carrie/Big relationship. It also features the girls singing Memories over colorful martini glasses.

Carrie gets her own "Your girl is lovely, Hubbell" moment as she asks Big why it was another woman and NOT her after his engagement party at The Plaza.

Season 3 (episode 41): Even though Carrie has started seeing the most wonderful guy in the world (Aidan) she sabotages the relationship by falling into bed with a now-married Mr. Big.

Guess who comes home in time to catch Carrie in her apartment? Mrs. Big…and after a chase, Natasha falls down stairs and breaks a tooth. Carrie takes her to the emergency room and when Mr. Big arrives, another dramatic break-up occurs:

“We’re so over, we need a new word for over.”

Season 4 (episode 65): A tribute to the “old” New York ends the season and Carrie learns Big is leaving the city for the Left Coast. They share an impromptu “twist” to Moon River in Big’s empty apartment, making for one of the most romantic moments of the series.

Season 5 (episode 69): The girls go to Atlantic City for a weekend of female bonding. The entire episode is beset with humor and special moments between the girls.

Carrie is given a $1,000 chip by a man and eventually decides to bet on 36 (her age) at the Roulette table after she asks the dealer what happens “after 36” and he replies, “I guess you fall off the table.” She loses.

It is difficult to pick out just one or two special moments or episodes from Season 6, because there are so many involving Carrie. You'll have to watch for the flying pink carnations, "jack rabbit" sex, the "wedding registry" at Manolo Blahnik and the eventual move to Paris.

"I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."
