Carrie is presented to Stanford Blatch's adored, classy grandmother, but comes to the conclusion his being gay cancels all his qualities on her bottom line and probably in her last will. Miranda is losing her self-respect after many rejections, but turns to blind dating - just to walk out on the first man who's still willing to give it a go when they meet. Samantha tries everything to turn Bernie Turtletaub, a Wall street guru but society laughing stock with viciously bad breath the girls met at the "singles" table at a posh wedding, into a fashionable date, but can even the best PR expert's make-over make up for his intrinsic lack of charm?

The Rabbit
12 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Turtle and the Hare is the ninth episode of the first season of Sex And The City. In it,we witness Mr.Big telling Carrie that he is not going to marry again.His statement unsettles her.Meanwhile,Miranda introduces the group to the Rabbit,a mechanical aid used for love making.Charlotte gets addicted to it.As for Samantha,she gets to meet Turtle and develops a relationship with him.Finally,Stanford Blatch proposes to Carrie as a cover, so he can inherit his part of the family fortune.

The women gets introduced to the so-called Rabbit.As soon as the word "Rabbit" is mentioned,every Sex And The City fan knows what I am talking about.Charlotte's addiction to it is very hilarious.I myself could not stop laughing. With regards to Carrie,she gets somewhat disappointed that Mr.Big no longer has the intention of getting married to start her own family.And what really makes it weird is that after hearing it,she instantly becomes engaged to another man who happens to like man and would probably join a family which she wasn't really sure joining.

This was definitely another funny episode.After exploring about having threesome in the previous episode,we get to see another taboo subject for TV - The Rabbit. Priceless!!!!
