Sex and the City

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.

Question: Since the show is based on Candace Bushnell's book, is Carrie Bradshaw a composite of Bushnell herself?

Chosen answer: Candace Bushnell has been quoted as saying that Carrie was a kind of "alter ego" for herself, so its possible that some of the situations that Carrie describes are fictional accounts of her own experiences.

Question: Did Carrie go back to her hotel room for her wardrobe after leaving Aleksandr and getting with Big? Surely she returned for all her Manolo's and stuff, or are we left to believe she gave it all up as the ultimate sacrifice for Mr. Big?

Answer: It's not shown, but we're to assume she either went back later and got her stuff or made arrangements to have it shipped home to New York.

Question: I know there are several websites devoted to the "count" of the number of men that each character has slept with. Does anyone know where one of these would be?

Chosen answer: Try http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/entertainment/7631192.htm, which has these (and other) statistics for the entire series, except for the last eight episodes (scroll down to 'SEX' by the numbers).

A vogue idea - S4-E17

Question: Why are the girls families never mentioned/they never mention them? I know Carrie talks about her father in series 4, episode 17, and I know Miranda's mum dies around then too, but what about Charlotte and Samantha? Where's all their family gone?

Answer: Introducing too many family characters would have cluttered the storyline and detracted from the show's basic premise of the single life in NYC. The focus remained on the girls' friendship, their relationships, and female views about sex and love. However, in addition to the relatives you mentioned, we also met Charlotte's brother--who slept with Samantha.

Question: So was Kim Cattrall ever serious about Sonia Braga or was it just a fling for her?

Rob245

Answer: It doesn't appear she was. Samantha was sexually adventurous and experimental to just about any type of relationship and had briefly sworn off men. She may have liked Braga, but she was too controlling and overbearing for Samantha, and ultimately, she only preferred men.

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.
