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. (00:01:40)
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: When Carrie is seeing Aiden off to PA, she says in voiceover, "Until the morning". The scene is set to be in the early morning, during sunrise. But it was actually filmed at sunset, at the end of the day, because they ran out of time. They added the birds chirping to make it seem like morning. (00:05:50)
Trivia: When Carrie comes downstairs at Aleksandr's, she finds his entire staff busy at work. These actors are speaking Hindi, Japanese, and French, individually. They are also fluent in these languages. A 5-page monologue had to be written for each actor, and translated for this scene. (00:13:15)
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. (00:08:50)
Trivia: When Carrie and Jeremy are having their picnic at the mental institution, a man suddenly runs by yelling, and being chased by two people. The man running is actually Michael Patrick King. The woman chasing him is Grace Naughton, the Associate Producer. And the other man helping is Key, one of the Security Guys from the show. (00:23:10)
