Carrie: I'm thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It's just a little bag but we'd feel naked in public without it.

Humanity Among The Characters
5 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie returns to the countryside with Aiden, and inadvertently invites Mr. Big after Willow breaks up with him. While there, Aiden and Big are constantly at odds, and end up fighting, leaving Carrie to mediate. Back in New York, Trey goes to have his sperm tested but can't get it in the cup, Miranda and Steve meet a specialist about a prosthetic testicle, and Samantha goes to a job interview.

This is definitely one of the better episodes of Sex And The City.Inspite of nothing much happening,we get to see Carrie's relationship problems magnified after Mr Big and Aiden gets into a fight.Also,we get to see Charlotte's immense desire of having a family particularly having children after she and Trey makes loves in the fertility clinic when the latter had a hard time getting off semen into a cup.Aside from that,we get to see Steve and Miranda deal with the testicular cancer that Steve has as both go to a therapist.It only shows how Miranda loves him so much.Finally,this is one episode that humanizes Samantha when she cried in the elevator after getting rejected in a job interview.In the end,this episode humanizes every character on the show.
