Quotes

[first lines]
Carrie: [narrating voice over] The most powerful woman in New York is not Tina Brown, or Diane Sawyer, or even Rosie O'Donnell. It's the hostess at Balzac, which had overnight become the only restaurant that mattered. And we were there to celebrate the moment.

Money and sex: how much are they connected?
5 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Carrie,Samantha,Miranda and Charlotte are discussing in this episode how close is money to sex. In Samantha's opinion, every women should have the rights to exploit the chance to get a promotion or have power using sex, since in her view, men provides power to women,while women would provide sex for them. Charlotte and Miranda do not agree with that and Carrie stays in doubt, until the day she has success going to Balzac, the famous restaurant, and sees her Italian friend Amalita again. Amalita is rich, is always traveling and having the best clothes,food,jewelry and accommodation someone can have. But the doubt is: what's the difference between being a professional girlfriend or just being a professional?

Ps: I am surprised to see that the actress Carole Davis, who plays Amalita(the Italian women) is actually English! She acts and talks perfectly like an Italian woman!( not to mention her looks)

aka "Poder Do Sexo Feminino" - Brazil
