[first lines]
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 sees how her married friends have changed!
4 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Staying one weekend in the Hamptons with her favorite couple of friends Patience and Peter,Carrie was having fun in their beach house, until in the second day, in the morning, she sees Peter without his underwear on. After telling Patience about what happened, she is expelled from their house right after Patience gets mad about it. That's what is needed to make Carrie think about the differences between married women and single women. For Miranda, after someone gets married, all the single friends become the enemy. Samantha complements saying that this is because married women are afraid of the single women,since they can have sex in any place and anywhere, and one of those men can be the husband of the married women. Others opinions around the episode comes out, like some married women telling that when they were single they were desperate, and the reasons why they change is because ''I'' becomes ''We'', and they don't make decisions alone anymore.

At the same time,Miranda gets confused in the company she works as a lesbian because she is single,Carrie starts going out with a guy who only thinks about marrying,bringing Charlotte and Samantha to one of the most annoying parties with ''the enemy'' ever.
