Trivia: 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. (00:05:20)
Trivia: During the scene at the wedding reception, Carrie is wearing her 'Carrie' necklace, which hasn't been on her the entire season. This symbolizes that Carrie feels like she has come back to herself. Also, the 'Carrie' necklace appears and disappears during the entire series in very important and significant ways. (00:25:25)
Trivia: During this scene, Samantha throws a cantaloupe through the plate glass door. Carrie is standing in the background at the party, and you can see her suddenly duck and react very strongly to the glass breaking. The reason she did this was because, when the glass door was shattered, the glass fragments flew out a much greater distance than had been expected. All of the actors standing near there, including Sarah Jessica Parker, were taken by surprise. (00:20:00)
Trivia: As in the previous episode, the colors pink and red are again emphasized in this episode, although not as much as before. We first see the combination with the flashback of Richard explaining himself to Samantha. His bedspread is red, and there is pink lighting in the windows behind him. During the second scene in Richard's apartment, the same colors are used, with the addition of Samantha wearing a bright red top. Later when Carrie and Charlotte are 'trolling guys' in the park, Carrie is wearing a red plaid hat, and Charlotte is wearing a very pink jacket. There is also a pink/red umbrella, and dark pink fire hydrant in the background. When Carrie meets with the two female Publishers in the bar, it has a red and pink decor. Later when Carrie and Samantha are walking in the street, and talking about Carrie's book, Samantha is wearing a very obvious pink and red outfit. When Carrie is back in her bedroom, going through her newspaper columns, she is wearing a pink dress with red figures on the chest. When Charlotte is seen in her bathroom listening to Affirmations, she is wearing a pink sweater, and writing on the mirror with red lipstick. Later when Carrie and Miranda are shopping in the Baptism store, Carrie is carrying a pink sweater, and Miranda is holding a large red purse. When Charlotte and Carrie walk into the Seminar and approach the welcome desk, there is a shot of a woman wearing a pink sweater standing next to a woman in a red shirt. Later when they are sitting down, Charlotte takes off her coat to reveal that it has a red lining, and she is wearing a pink and black dress underneath. There are also several women in the audience wearing red. When Samantha and Richard are seated at the restaurant, the decor there also has some red and pink. Later when Carrie walks into the Baptism Church, she is wearing a pink hat, which contrasts against Mary's red jacket. And finally, when Carrie is holding Brady right after the Baptism, there is a shot of her wearing the pink hat, juxtaposed against the bank of red candles behind her. So once again, for some reason, the colors pink and red were a focal point of this episode as well.
