The good fight - S4-E13

The good fight - S4-E13

Trivia: During this scene when Richard and Samantha are dancing by the pool, you can see the NYC skyline behind them. The World Trade Towers were visible right between them, when this was filmed. They were later taken out, and this was the only time in the entire series that anything was digitally removed from the show. They removed the World Trade Towers for two reasons: One; they would have changed the entire tone of the scene and made it sad and tragic. Two; when the show actually aired the World Trade Towers had already been destroyed. They wanted the show to appear current, as if it was happening now and not in the past. If they had left the World Trade Towers in the shot, it would have looked like it was filmed in the past. (00:24:10)

Belles of the balls - S4-E10

Trivia: When Carrie is reading 'InStyle' magazine, there is a prominent photo of Big's recent girlfriend/actress "Willow Summers" on the cover. This photo looks exactly like the same actress who played Big's first wife (and publishing executive) during a previous season. This same woman appears in the previous episode when Carrie is walking down the street after having dinner with Big, and he tells her about Willow Summers. She stops when she sees a poster of the famous actress, and again the woman in the photo looks exactly like the woman who played Big's first wife. (00:13:30)

Trivia: The apartment shown in this scene as Big's, was the same apartment they used for Trey and Charlotte. They had to reconfigure the living room to make it look like Big's again, because he had been out of the series for so long. (00:28:45)

I heart ny - S4-E18

The good fight - S4-E13

Trivia: This dog 'Pete' is not the original Pete dog, he is a replacement. The first dog was too scared being around John Corbett, so they had to replace him with a 'stunt' Pete dog. (00:02:00)

I heart ny - S4-E18

Trivia: In this scene when Carrie is walking out of Mr. Big's apartment, all of the autumn leaves were tinted, and not real. Everything was very green when they were actually filming. (00:29:30)

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.
