Carrie Bradshaw: [voice over narration] One of the best things about living in a city like New York is leaving it. My friend, Patience and her husband invited me out to the Hamptons for the weekend. Patience and Peter were the perfect married couple. They were fun, smart, and they looked like they fell out of a J. Crew catalogue. If their house wasn't right on the beach, I would've hated them.

Carrie is invited to go up to their Hamptons beach house by Patience and Peter.But in the morning she bumps into Peter in the hall without his underwear on.This cause complications on their friendship. Some friends introduce her to Sean,who has been known as a guy who wants to get married but when she can't keep up on his quick-march to commitment.He ditches her for commitment-phile Charlotte. Miranda's colleague from work, Jeff, introduces her to a lesbian, Sid, at a baseball game, and they are invited to her senior partner's dinner party.

This episode was absolutely hilarious. I absolutely loved drunk Samantha. That was definitely one of my all-time favorite Sex And The City moments. I also didn't really mind the documentary style being used on the show in this particular episode since is discussed married people compared to single people since it was only less than 30 minutes. All in all, this was a great episode.I really enjoyed it.
