Storyline

Now none of the girls has a relationship, the quartet hits a salsa bar all night, so Carrie is late for a photo-shoot for Stanford's boyfriend Nevin's magazine; the result is worse then she ever feared. Only Samantha is absent from the power-walking, where Miranda bumps into an ex, hunky ophthalmologist Josh, who just didn't give her orgasms; history repeats itself, and she still fakes coming; once she tells him, his confidence is shaken, so he gets her to coach him- now sex feels like an exam subject. Charlotte enjoys the handy jobs done by and kissing with unemployed actor Tom, too much to see him move to Salt Lake City for a soap part, but is that enough? Samantha was picked up by the salsa club's co-owner William, and invites Carrie to join them for the summer in the East Hamptons, but is stood up. At a party with Stanford, drunk Carrie meets single smoker Jake. Written by KGF Vissers

The one that proves it's okay to be single and be happy about it!
22 May 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "SATC" episode from season 2 perfectly titled "They Shoot Single People, Don't They?" is without a doubt one of the best as it's proves it's okay to be single and be happy in the process. As all of a sudden at once all of the girls find themselves alone and single and they all are club hopping together instead of bed hopping. To complicate matters things worsen when Carrie does a photo page for "The New Yorker" looking rough as a mugshot yet it declares her single and fabulous! Each then get involved with a man and all see that it's better to be single if you have to sacrifice your pride and respect to do things you don't want to. As Miranda finds Josh can't give her an orgasm, and Carrie doesn't want to do a one night stand just to feel like a celebrity. And Samantha finds that promises and riches don't make happiness as it's better off to be single as her new lover cheats in the end. Look for a hot sexy scene of Samantha getting dressed in which she sports a sexy gold flowered strapped lace silk bra! Overall one of the better episodes that makes a viewer feel good about being single it shows that the life can be okay.
