Let there be light - S6-E13

Trivia: According to the commentary, one of the problems with this final season was that all of the babies used for Miranda had grown to the level where they were crying almost all of the time. Therefore, they had to switch babies a lot, even within scenes. (00:09:25)

I love a charade - S5-E8

Trivia: According to the commentary; when Carrie is looking at her high school yearbook, you can see Cindy Chupack (the writer for this episode) and Sabrina Wright on the yearbook page. Sabrina Wright is the Property Master for the show, and they have used her name for a couple of generic book titles, etc. in Sex and the city. (00:06:45)

Boy, interrupted - S6-E10

Trivia: These basketball game scenes were actually filmed in the real Madison Square Gardens. In order to use the name 'The Knicks' for the show, they had to agree to film at MSG, which is their home. They also used the real Knicks City Dancers.

Trivia: After Lexi falls out of the window, there is an outdoor snow montage. This was the only time in the entire series, where they just filmed the city without one of the girls in it.

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

Trivia: The coffee shop has always been a set, on a sound stage. But in this scene, the girls are leaving the coffee shop to walk out on the street. Sex and the city had to build a real coffee shop exterior, so that the girls could walk out into the real world. (00:42:05)

Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

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.

Splat! - S6-E18

Trivia: When Carrie meets Eunice for lunch, they are actually being filmed at Milo's, which is a Greek-themed seafood restaurant in New York City. (00:01:05)

Splat! - S6-E18

Trivia: During these scenes outside of the funeral, all of the snow visible onscreen was placed there by the show. This was filmed before the actual snowstorm. (00:24:25)

To market, to market - S6-E1

Trivia: During this scene when Miranda keeps accidentally smearing baby poo on her face, it's actually chocolate icing they are putting on Cynthia Nixon's face. (00:06:45)

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.

Charlotte: How can you forget a guy you've slept with?
Carrie: Toto, I don't think we're in single digits anymore.

More quotes from Sex and the City

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?

Weeny Post

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.
