<Samantha's been reporting on last night's weird date... >
Miranda: Y'see, this is why I don't date -- the men out there are freaks.
Carrie: Well that's completely unfair.
Miranda: I'm sorry, if a man is over 30 and single, there's something wrong with him, it's Darwinian -- they're being weeded out from propagating the species.
Carrie: Okay, what about us?
Miranda: We're just choosy. I'm getting more shrimp.
Carrie: In the end, I decided I was definitely 34 going on 35. But in a city like New York, with its pace and its pressures, sometimes it's important to have a 13-year-old moment -- to remember a simpler time when the best thing in life was just hanging out, listening to records and having fun with your friends -- in your very own apartment.
Stanford: It's so not fair. All the good ones are straight... even the gay ones.
Samantha: You've got to get online, honey. If only for the porn.
Miranda: I'm fine... but Charlotte, maybe your "hmmm hmmm" would like an order of fries?
Carrie: Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.
Carrie: <about therapists> First they want you to come there two times a week, then three times a week, and eventually you're starting every sentence with 'my therapist says... '
Miranda: My therapist says that's a very common fear.
Carrie: You think it's as simple as my dad walked out therefore I'll always be screwed up about men?
Miranda: My father came home at seven on the button every night and I still have no clue.
Stanford: Oh my God, look at him. It's like he travels with his own personal lighting director.
Carrie: Come on, you wouldn't commit to a nice guy, given the chance?
Stanford: I can't even commit to a long distance carrier.
Carrie: My Zen teacher also said: the only way to true happiness is to live in the moment and not worry about the future. Of course, he died penniless and single.
Carrie: Well, I think maybe there's a cheating curve. That someone's definition of what constitutes cheating is in direct proportion to how much they themselves want to cheat.
Miranda: That's moral relativism!
Carrie: I prefer to think of it as quantum cheating.
