Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Corrected entry: At the end of Season 4 after Aiden moves out, Carrie has the hole in her bedroom wall fixed, and repaints that wall an olive green color to match the others. (Season 4, Episode 18, at: 1:18.) But in this episode, when Carrie is in her bedroom going through her newspaper columns, you can see that this same wall is suddenly painted a light pink color. It hasn't been very long since she just painted the wall olive green again, so why would she suddenly repaint just that one wall light pink? Why would she repaint the same wall again twice, that quickly? (00:12:50)

Correction: Carrie painted the wall olive green in season 4, episode 18. After which at some point, she reconsidered her choice and painted the wall pink, by the time we see it in season 5, episode 2. Even if she changed her mind and repainted her wall a dozen times between that time span, it is her choice to make, and we needn't see it onscreen. It's only a mistake if it suddenly reverts back to the olive colour between shots.

People don't normally paint their bedroom walls more than once, in a short period of time. Or paint them 'a dozen times'. It is unusual to paint a wall a new color, and then suddenly repaint it a different color a short time later.

Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie is sitting at the table writing on her laptop after her trip with the girls to the sports bar, the camera comes round and you can see her TV. You can see a boom mic reflecting on the TV screen, and another camera.

Samantha: There isn't enough wall space in New York City to hang all of my exes. Let me tell you, a lot of them were hung.

Trivia: 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.

Twenty-something girls vs. thirty-something women - S2-E17

Question: I have a somewhat odd question for everyone that watches Sex and the city. I got into the show about 2 or 3 years after it started running but I remember watching the episode "Twenty-something girls vs. thirty-something women" which was the episode about Carrie and the girls going to the Hamptons and renting a house. Charlotte dates a younger guy that gives her crabs. There is commentary about comparing 20 year girls to 30 year old women and when I watched this episode originally I swear there was a different ending then what is what is shown now. I want to know if anyone else has seen this or am I absolutely insane. In the episode there is a girl that pukes on the beach - her friend holds her hair back and Carrie makes a commentary about "counting on 20 year old girls to hold your hair back." Later when Carrie sees Big with Natasha she runs to the beach and Miranda runs after her. Carrie throws up because she is upset and Miranda holds her hair back, but the version I saw changes the commentary/narration and says that you can "always count on a 30 something year old friend to hold your hair back." I haven't seen that version again. Has anyone else seen it or did I just dream this, because I swear I remember watching this when it first came out?

Answer: I'm a long-time fan of the show, having re-watched it many times, and I definitely remember slightly different dialogue at the end of that episode than what's on my DVD. I'm afraid I have no idea why this change might have been made or any other info, but you're not insane.
