Sex and the City

Carrie is the only main character who never appears nude (she is either dressed or covered by something). Sarah Jessica Parker had a strict "no nudity" clause in her contract.

Cynthia Nixon, who plays redhead Miranda Hobbes, is a natural blonde. She had to dye her hair for the role.

After the first season, the producers hated having to refer to phone numbers by tv and movie standards (beginning with 555) that they purchased two real phone numbers to use throughout the rest of the series.

Concerning the entire Wall Street/Stock Market scenes; Sex And The City was the very first production to film in the New York Stock Exchange since the movie Wall Street. They filmed these scenes at the actual NYSE. Because it was after 9-11, every piece of camera equipment, prop, costume, etc. had to be sniffed by bomb-sniffing dogs. This was the very first non-official event that was let into the Stock Market after 9-11. Every extra that you can see on the Stock Market floor was an actual trader. Also, Sex And The City got to open the real Stock Market, on the day the show premiered.

Carrie is carrying a small bunch of violets in this Parisian montage. What is interesting is that in France, traditionally, violets are the flowers that the husband gives his wife when he has disappointed her, or they have had a fight. Symbolically, the violets that Carrie bought for herself represent that she is continually disappointed by Aleksandr.

A lot of the artwork seen in Aleksandr's home set really belonged to Mikhail Baryshnikov from his own home. He told Sex And The City 'Let's make it authentic, come and get my artwork'.

Easy come, easy go - S3-E9

When Trey and Charlotte are viewed through the Tiffany window, it isn't the actual window. Tiffany would not allow cameras to film inside their store, so the show built a fake Tiffany window. But Tiffany sent their dressers to dress the window, to make it appear authentic to the real thing.

Anchors away - S5-E1

During this scene, Carrie states to the other girls, "If you want to do your patriotic duty as New York women, you will come shopping with me right now and throw some much needed money Downtown". According to the commentary, this is possibly the only direct reference to New York City and 9-11 in the entire episode. Downtown NYC was very hurt by the World Trade Towers disaster, and the show thought that Carrie's character would be doing her part, which includes shopping.

The good fight - S4-E13

Carrie has just left her apartment and is walking down her street, which is empty. They did not close off traffic to film; it just happened to be a quiet New York City day with no traffic.

What goes around comes around - S3-E17
