The cook, just Jon, is reserved for Samantha's bed, but his hot friend Sam, also twenty-something (those always seem to know the right people) flirts with Carrie; Big turns up saying he was on time but couldn't find her, time to leave town. At a twenties club Sam takes Carrie on his lap and kisses really well, five hours long, and again while she helps him pick a shirt. Samantha eagerly reports on a night of sex with Jon, twenties-men are so hot and consider thirties-women a good deal. Charlotte is embarrassed Bryant explicitly asked for anal sex, Miranda warns her not to give in on respect which is power, Samantha says a hole is just that; Charlotte gets a decent first date.

Did You Know?


When Carrie is narrating while in the bar with the 20-something guy Sam, she says something like "While I took a sip of my pony neck bottle..." while she is clearly drinking a long neck bottle, the standard in virtually every U.S. bar. A pony is an 8 oz bottle, which were popular in the late '70s/early '80s but most breweries no longer bottle in that size. See more »


When Carrie receives a phone call from Samantha, her voice over says she needs her morning Marlboro Light, however, when she picks up her pack of cigarettes, it is a pack of Merits. See more »


[first lines]
Carrie: [narrating voice over] Once upon a time... in a kingdom faraway, a certain man and a slightly less certain woman kept bumping into one other. They seemed to meet everywhere. On street corners. At parties. It was almost as if they were dating accidentally. And then, after another chance meeting, at a wealthy lawyer's new son's rbis, they decided to pick a time to bump into each other on purpose.

Dating younger guys...
4 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Carrie and Mr. Big, after always seen each other by accident in all the places they go, decided to go out together. Carrie,Samantha,Charlotte and Miranda are all in one of the coolest restaurants of New York, and after a long time waiting for Mr. Big to come for their date, Carrie decides to give attention to Sam, a guy in his twenties who is a friend of the chef Jon,another guy in his twenties that Samantha is going out. Carrie starts seeing the advantages of going out with a younger guy,like the fact that they always know everybody,has cute bodies and butts, and are not complicated and full of annoying habits like the older guys.Mr. Big for example, makes everything complicated for him and Carrie in all their first dates. Miranda tells that is all about sex, but Carrie thinks if she could make the relationship go ahead.

But Samantha's and Carrie's interests will not last very much,specially when Samantha sees that dating a younger guy she will always be the ''old one'' and Carries stays disappointed with the type of place Sam lives and his subjects to talk.
