An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

Trivia: 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. (00:10:25)

Trivia: The music during the Carrie montage in Paris was actually written by Mikhail Baryshnikov. It's called 'Carrie's Theme', and is the same music that Aleksandr played to Carrie on his piano in 'The ick factor' episode. The show had the music scored by an orchestra, and used it during these scenes. Michael Patrick King wrote the entire montage, with this music in mind. (00:08:50)

Trivia: The coffee shop has always been a set, on a sound stage. But in this scene, the girls are leaving the coffee shop to walk out on the street. Sex and the city had to build a real coffee shop exterior, so that the girls could walk out into the real world. (00:42:05)

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.
