Storyline

Carrie ponders the theory that all Manhattan men are freaks. After Samantha found out an eligible lawyer has a masochistic closet, she decides too cheer up herself by scheduling having her fanny's fat injected in her facial cheeks. When Carrie meets charming journalist Ben, she doubled-dates with his mate Luke and Miranda - a total misfit because she abhors his position that nothing outside is worth leaving Manhattan even for a holiday. Charlotte meets the legendary Mitch(ell) 'pussy' and experiences he never disappoints in bed, but can she really be satisfied without an actual relationship? Meanwhile Carrie gets freaked out by her failing to find Ben's freaky side, so she takes drastic action at his place. Written by KGF Vissers

Carrie turns freakish herself after dating a string of freaky guys and freaks out the very normal Ben when trying to discover his secret freakishness. Miranda dates "Manhattan Guy," a guy who hasn't left Manhattan in ten years. Charlotte dates the renowned "Mr. Pussy" and tries to make a real relationship out of it. Samantha decides to get plastic surgery and freaks out during the consult.

This episode is entertaining in the sense that we get to see how the women deal when dating normal guys particularly Carrie,who obviously hasn't gotten over Mr.Big; and Miranda,who hasn't gotten over Skipper.Although they say that they are dating with freaks,both women just haven't completely gotten over their previous relationships.Also,we get to see how hard it is to get past the hurt that they have been experiencing.This is an eye-opener especially from people who just have broken up from a relationship.
