Sex and the City

To market, to market - S6-E1

Trivia: This traffic jam scene was filmed in the 23rd and 5th avenue area of NYC. The City allowed the show to have the entire city block/area roped off, in order to create a realistic traffic jam. While they were filming this scene, Sex And The City 'owned' the whole block.

I love a charade - S5-E8

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.

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.

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

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.
