Sex and the City

Boy, interrupted - S6-E10

Trivia: During the prom scenes, almost every single one of the extras were actually at the original Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Prom. They all came back dressed, to film the scenes. (00:25:20)

The good fight - S4-E13

Trivia: Carrie has just left her apartment and is walking down her street, which is empty. They did not close off traffic to film; it just happened to be a quiet New York City day with no traffic. (00:27:35)

Running with scissors - S3-E11

Trivia: Whenever we see the 'sandwich guy', his voice is actually that of Michael Patrick King. (00:17:05)

Let there be light - S6-E13

Trivia: A lot of the artwork seen in Aleksandr's home set really belonged to Mikhail Baryshnikov from his own home. He told Sex And The City 'Let's make it authentic, come and get my artwork'. (00:11:15)

Splat! - S6-E18

Trivia: Aleksander's kitchen set was beautifully designed, but they forgot to include any ovens or a refrigerator. They didn't realize this until they were filming this scene. So they had to use a 'lit-up shelf' as a pretend oven, for Aleksander's character to use convincingly. (00:02:40)

Change of a dress - S4-E15

Trivia: The earrings that Carrie is wearing in this scene are very special to Sarah Jessica Parker. She wore them the year she won the Golden Globes, and they are her 'good luck' earrings. (00:19:15)

I love a charade - S5-E8

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)

I heart ny - S4-E18

Trivia: In this scene with Miranda giving birth, the doctor shown is a real MD. They wanted to use a real doctor who knew how to handle a baby. (00:26:35)

All or nothing - S3-E10

Trivia: During this scene when Miranda is having phone sex, the male actor's voice is not dubbed or edited in. Instead of using him in voiceover, he is actually in the next room, talking live on the phone to Cynthia Nixon. (00:17:05)

Easy come, easy go - S3-E9

Trivia: When Trey and Charlotte are viewed through the Tiffany window, it isn't the actual window. Tiffany would not allow cameras to film inside their store, so the show built a fake Tiffany window. But Tiffany sent their dressers to dress the window, to make it appear authentic to the real thing. (00:24:20)

What goes around comes around - S3-E17

Trivia: When Carrie and Samantha are walking to the party, they stop when they find out it's actually located at a college dorm. The name of the dorm is shown as 'Coulter Hall'. This is an homage to Allen Coulter, the director of this episode. (00:11:10)

To market, to market - S6-E1

Trivia: Concerning the entire Wall Street/Stock Market scenes; Sex And The City was the very first production to film in the New York Stock Exchange since the movie Wall Street. They filmed these scenes at the actual NYSE. Because it was after 9-11, every piece of camera equipment, prop, costume, etc. had to be sniffed by bomb-sniffing dogs. This was the very first non-official event that was let into the Stock Market after 9-11. Every extra that you can see on the Stock Market floor was an actual trader. Also, Sex And The City got to open the real Stock Market, on the day the show premiered.

Running with scissors - S3-E11

Trivia: During the scene when Charlotte and Anthony are looking at wedding dresses, it was actually filmed at the real Vera Wang. (00:12:05)

Don't ask, don't tell - S3-E12

Trivia: At the beginning of Charlotte's wedding, they are playing an actual Scottish funeral dirge. This is to symbolize Charlotte losing herself in a bad marriage. (00:22:30)

I love a charade - S5-E8

Trivia: The pink dress that Carrie is wearing is very special. Patricia Field designed and made the dress, to cover Sarah Jessica Parker's pregnancy. This was the only time a Patricia Field dress had ever been on the show. (00:26:10)

I heart ny - S4-E18

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

Trivia: The large 'moon' seen in this scene was not the real moon. It was actually a light that got caught on film, and they decided to shape it into the moon. (00:22:50)

Great sexpectations - S6-E2

Trivia: According to the commentary, the show was always careful not to locate the day and year on screen. But in this scene, when Miranda's Tivo has broken, it was necessary to use the real date. The date shown on the Tivo screen was actually the date the show first aired (right around that week). (00:15:45)

Let there be light - S6-E13

Trivia: According to the commentary, there are a lot of mirror reflections used in this episode. Mirrors become elevator doors, hallways, etc. They were all about reflecting back where each of the girls are, at this point in their lives. (00:20:25)

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

Trivia: While Big's first name is finally revealed in this episode, it's never actually said out loud. It instead appears on Carrie's cell phone caller ID.
