Aidan vs Big
11 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite episodes because it contains the Big vs Aidan showdown (some basketball, attempted fisticuffs and finally mud wrestling). I wanted to search the forums (THANKS IMDb ASSHOLES) but apparently they are gone - for a quote I remembered because it pertains to a recent situation. Something Big says about "we're grown men, we don't make new friends." I wanted to show this to a recent new acquaintence I made who seems reluctant to go do some guy stuff that I invited him to. I just wanted to say... it's OK, I understand it's just like that Sex & the City episode where Big says "....... " but I guess I won't get the exact quote now.

Also want to make a note that as much as this was beloved by people when it came out. Now that I watch Sex & the City clips on Youtube, in the comments Carrie is universally panned. Everyone hates the bitch now, in a few years everyone will probably hate the show because it contains a group of selfish, materialistic "bitches" that live a meaningless lifestyle. Times change.... PS Miranda is my favorite now, used to be Charlotte cuz she was so cute but Miranda is closest to my soul mate. F*ck Carrie.
