Charlotte is completely besotted with Trey, who she just met by accident but already considers him, her groom. At a chic boat party Charlotte presents him to Carry, who is already tired of the meeting by fate story and bumps into Mr. Big there, without Natasha- despite her living with Aidan they clearly miss each-other. Samantha, who just moved to the meat packing district, is invited by a much older new neighbor, Len; discovering her period is five days late, she gets drunk and accepts to go all the way, but then nature steps in. To Miranda's utter and sarcastically uttered surprise, Steve suggests they consider making a baby; they settle for the time on a puppy he would care for, but when that doesn't work out...

When Steve is watching Scooby-Doo, he tells Miranda it's the episode with the ghost in the salt mine. But really the episode is "Jeepers! It's the Creeper!", which doesn't contain a ghost at all. See more »

Move over Aidan make room for Mr. Big. And see a nice sexy scene of Sarah!
22 May 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "SATC" episode from season three titled "The Big Time" says it all as Carrie's old flame Mr. Big is about to move in on or at least try to invade her romance with Aidan. As the episodes main theme proves when it ends that timing is everything and Mr. Big will just have to wait. Also funny and both serious at the same time that all grown adult women can relate to is the change or new phase of life as Samantha starts going thru menopause. Also watch Sarah Jessica's Carrie dress up for a social event as for about a minute of a scene she sports a nice and sexy light silk colored purple bra that was just so nice and sweet to see! Overall pretty good episode one of the better from season three.
