(2000) Sex and the City: No Ifs, Ands, or Butts The impossible happens when Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) meets a man who's so fabulous that she attempts to give up smoking for him. Throwing out her smokes and slapping on the patch, Carrie makes a go of it with Aidan (John Corbett), a non-smoking furniture designer who's so cute that he could convince Phillip Morris to begin funding lung cancer research. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) realizes that some changes are impossible when the sister of an African-American man she's dating tells her that Samantha's not right for her brother by virtue -- or vice -- of her skin color. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) faces up to her own intransigence when she won't make time to support Steve (David Eigenberg) at his basketball game, which annoys him to no end. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is also annoyed, in this case with her new guy, Brad (Ross Gibby), who kisses with the grace and intricacy of a blind and thirsty bloodhound. And Carrie's gay friend, Stanford (Willie Garson), makes a sporadic appearance, this time while dating a guy (Donald Berman) whose fanaticism for his doll collection reaches a fever pitch when Stanford breaks one of the dolls during an enthusiastic bedroom session. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Escape from New York While Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is away to Bermuda for her honeymoon with Trey (Kyle MacLachlan), the other girls make a spontaneous decision to hop a plane to Los Angeles. Upon arrival, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) duly makes the acquaintance of Garth (James Macdonald), who pays the rent as a dildo model. The generously endowed Californian invites Samantha and the girls to a party for his new product, where Sam ends up bedding her host while Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) find themselves disgusted with the tawdry festivities. Carrie is in for some tawdriness of her own when she meets a Hollywood producer (Matthew McConaughey) who wants to make a movie based on her columns; Carrie finds his proposition desirable enough until he begins making propositions of a more unseemly nature, and further insults her by offering crass remarks about her relationship with Big. Miranda, on the other hand, wishes someone would proposition her: Frustrated with her apparent invisibility to men, she saddles up a mechanical bull for a lusty ride. Returning from an asexual honeymoon, Charlotte creates an experiment to test Trey's lack of performance, and discovers that her husband's sexual issues are psychological rather than physical. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Sex and Another City During the second week of the girls' L.A. vacation, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), who is tired of the sunny insincerity exhibited by the city's natives, reconnects with Lou (Sam Seder), an old friend from New York. Unfortunately, Miranda is disappointed to find that, far from badmouthing his adopted city, Lou has become a happy Left Coast convert who abandoned his neuroses back in New York. As for Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), she makes the acquaintance of Keith (Vince Vaughn), who uses his apparent status as a TV exec to get her and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) into an exclusive party. Unfortunately, Carrie's latest Lothario is not all that he says he is, as she later discovers when she meets his boss...at his house, where she ends up with Keith after the party. However, this deception is nothing compared to the bomb Charlotte (Kristin Davis) drops on her friends when she unexpectedly shows up in L.A.: her marriage to Trey (Kyle MacLachlan), she confesses, is a sexless hoax. Shaken by this admission, the girls decide to cope in the most quintessentially L.A. way possible, by heading to the Playboy mansion for a raucous party with Hugh Hefner. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Hot Child in the City While shopping at a comic book store, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) meets Wade (Cane Peterson), who quickly assumes status as her latest boy toy. Particularly impressed by Wade's fabulous apartment, Carrie is less than impressed when his mother (Anita Gillette) comes home. Although Carrie is happy enough to accept his mom's home-baked cookies, she questions whether she can really date a mama's boy, especially when Wade's mother reprimands them for smoking weed. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) is having childhood regression issues of her own, thanks to her decision to get braces. When her date gets caught in her ungainly hardware, Miranda is forced to question the true cost of orthodontics. Meanwhile, Charlotte (Kristin Davis) has more adult issues to confront when she decides to get to the bottom of Trey's (Kyle MacLachlan) sexual hang-ups. Although he protests angrily, Trey finally agrees to accompany Charlotte to a marriage counselor, at whose behest they name their respective private parts Schooner and Rebecca. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) gets an eye-opening perspective on the teens of today when she does publicity for the bat mitzvah of an oversexed 13-year-old who in more ways than one reminds Samantha of herself. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Frenemies Will, Miranda's (Cynthia Nixon) latest man, happens upon the perfect excuse for not showing up for a date when he drops dead. At his wake, a shocked and dismayed Miranda finds some solace when she meets Jim (Dominic Fumusa), an aesthetically pleasing fellow mourner who also happens to be one of Carrie's (Sarah Jessica Parker) exes. Although Carrie warns her that there was a reason she broke up with Jim, Miranda sees him anyway, and then just as quickly sees that he's a complete louse. For her part, Carrie has her hands full when she agrees to teach a seminar about how to meet men to a group of very dissatisfied women whose questions make her realize that for a professional sex columnist, she still has a lot to learn. Meanwhile, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) gives a few sex lessons of her own to Charlotte (Kristin Davis), who is getting nowhere in her attempts to cure Trey (Kyle MacLachlan) of his listless libido. Although Charlotte is disgusted by Samantha's lascivious advice, she discovers that her friend speaks words of wisdom when she reluctantly follows Samantha's instructions and reaps raunchy results. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: What Goes Around Comes Around It's a case of instant karma for Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) when, in addition to getting snubbed in a restaurant by Big's (Chris Noth) wife, Natasha (Bridget Moynahan), her favorite pair of Manolo Blahniks are taken by a mugger. And if this isn't enough, the cute detective (Timothy Gibbs) who's supposed to be handling Carrie's case wavers in his dedication to justice when he meets Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and begins to dedicate his attentions to her instead. After Samantha (Kim Cattrall) informs Carrie that Natasha (Bridget Moynahan) has left Big, Carrie, wracked with even more guilt than she had been previously, hunts down Natasha in a restaurant and makes a profound apology, one that is met with even more profound hostility. Samantha, meanwhile, makes an equally profound mistake by seducing a college boy (Jacob Pitts), who duly becomes her obsessed stalker. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) finds relief from her marital woes in the muscular arms of the McDougal family's gardener (Steve Richard Harris); unfortunately, her bliss is cut short when Trey's (Kyle MacLachlan) sister catches the two of them together and proceeds to tell her entire family. Following an angry confrontation with her husband, Charlotte leaves the family estate and returns to the city, where she is met by the empty silence of her old apartment. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Cock a Doodle Do! After learning that their respective exes, Steve (David Eigenberg) and Aidan (John Corbett), have moved on to new girlfriends, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) are led to question whether the problems in their relationships stemmed from the men or from themselves instead. The question is exacerbated for Carrie when she receives a call from Big (Chris Noth), who asks her to meet him for lunch. Carrie agrees to, but when she tells Miranda -- who disapproves of her decision -- the friends get into their first big fight. Fortunately, Miranda gets new perspective when she runs into Steve, who allays some of her insecurities, and she and Carrie make up before Carrie meets Big. Meanwhile, Charlotte gets a surprise visit from Trey (Kyle MacLachlan) at her apartment, and an even bigger surprise when Trey seduces her. Afterwards, the two have a serious discussion about their problems, one that yields no new decisions. For her part, Carrie makes a new decision during her meeting with Big, who suggests they resume their old ways; deciding that it may be a good idea in theory but not in practice, she heads over to Samantha's apartment, where Samantha (Kim Cattrall) has invited the girls to join her and some transsexual prostitutes for a few drinks. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Drama Queens Three weeks into her relationship with Aidan (John Corbett), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) begins to freak out over the seeming perfection of their life together, something that isn't helped when Aidan asks her to meet his parents. Charlotte (Kristin Davis), tired of too much imperfection, decides to ask her married friends to introduce her to eligible bachelors. Her latest plan backfires when her first date ends up being a married friend who confesses he's in love with her, but Charlotte, who angrily dumps the hormonal husband on the spot, finds the silver lining when she subsequently has a chance meeting with Trey (Kyle MacLachlan), a stranger with whom the sparks immediately start to fly. Sparks of another origin fly for Samantha (Kim Cattrall) when she sleeps with Mark (Billy Wirth), a doctor who doesn't need Viagra but takes it to further heighten his sexual pleasure. After downing a couple of the pills herself, Samantha is hooked, and soon finds herself unwilling to have sex without it. And after encountering Big (Chris Noth) and Natasha (Bridget Moynahan) at the opera, Carrie realizes she's been treating Aidan like Big treated her, and she goes to breakfast with Aidan and his parents. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl At her gallery's opening for Baird (Donovan Leitch), a photographer known for his portraits of drag kings, Charlotte (Kristin Davis) meets the photographer, who wastes no time in asking her to pose for him. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) encounters some gender issues of her own when Sean (Eddie Cahill), the fun twentysomething she is currently dating, reveals to her that he has dated men as well as women. Although they end up sleeping together, Carrie finds herself wondering whose company Sean truly prefers. Meanwhile, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) has a new assistant (Chris Tardio) who, despite being of the aesthetically pleasing variety, vexes her with his inability to take orders. Tired of his refusal to do what she asks, Samantha asserts both her public and private supremacy by firing Matt and then sleeping with him. For her part, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) finds her household supremacy challenged after Steve (David Eigenberg) moves in and proceeds to make a slob of himself. And Charlotte and Carrie's gender conundrums find eventual resolution: Charlotte's when she poses for Baird and is so happy with her drag look that she ends up bedding the photographer, and Carrie's when she kisses another woman while attending a party with Sean and decides she's just too old-fashioned for that sort of scene. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Attack of the Five Foot Ten Woman Following an encounter with Big's fiancée, the tall, beautiful, twentysomething Natasha (Bridget Moynahan), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) asks herself if some New York women exist for the sole purpose of making other women feel like hell. To cheer her friend up, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) suggests a day at the spa. The day, however, turns out to be anything but rejuvenating: Acting on a tip that one of the massage therapists performs with more than his hands, Samantha makes a misguided advance on the man that gets her banned from the spa. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) realizes she has problems of another kind when her body issues prevent her from taking it all off in the steam room. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) has a confrontation with her Ukrainian housekeeper, who insists on lecturing Miranda on everything from herbal teas to marriage. Eventually, all four friends enjoy validation: Samantha by getting the unwilling massage therapist fired; Charlotte by returning naked to the steam room, where another woman compliments her breasts; Miranda by firing her overbearing housekeeper after she replaces Miranda's vibrator with a statue of the Virgin Mary; and Carrie by discovering that for all of her outward charms, Natasha can't escape making certain embarrassing faux pas. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Politically Erect Having yielded to the advances of politician Bill (John Slattery), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) spends a few weeks accompanying him on the campaign trail. Charlotte (Kristin Davis), who now inhabits the realm of active husband-hunter, throws a used date party that doesn't quite work out as planned when her current object of interest rekindles his romance with his ex. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) faces a quandary of her own when Steve (David Eigenberg) tells her he wants to date her exclusively, which causes her to worry that she might miss out on someone better. Samantha (Kim Cattrall), meanwhile, encounters a different kind of conflict when she begins seeing a midget who buys his clothes in the Bloomingdale boy's department but is fantastic in bed and has a great sense of humor to boot. After being dumped by Bill because he feels that dating a sex columnist would be bad for his image, Carrie gets revenge on the callous politician through her latest column, proving again that the pen is mightier than the sword. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Where There's Smoke.... In order to properly participate in the New York City Fire Department's Calendar Contest, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and the girls journey from Manhattan to the exotic climes of Staten Island. There, the irascible Samantha (Kim Cattrall) wastes no time in fulfilling her fireman fantasy with hunky Ricky (Mike Lombardi), but is dismayed when their romp is interrupted when Ricky is called upon to fight an actual fire with his colleagues, who, Samantha is aghast to discover, are a bunch of regular Joes who don't live up to her hottie-with-a-hose fantasy. Carrie, meanwhile, finds herself pursued by Bill Kelley (John Slattery), a local politician. Although Carrie resists his overtures, she eventually yields to the older man. As for Charlotte (Kristin Davis), she decides that this will be the year she gets married, but her mission faces its first obstacle in the form of Arthur (Brad Beyer), whom she is currently dating. After he gets into a series of fist fights, Charlotte realizes it's time to move on to someone without bullying tendencies. The perpetually cynical Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) gets a lesson in strength and weakness when, despite her insistence that she doesn't need rescuing, Steve (David Eigenberg) escorts her home following her laser vision surgery and shows her that needing somebody's help shouldn't always be equated with weakness. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Don't Ask, Don't Tell As Charlotte's (Kristin Davis) wedding to Trey (Kyle MacLachlan) draws near, the bride-to-be finds herself more than a little concerned about her bedroom relations with her fiancé, or rather, the lack thereof. The night before her wedding, after confessing to her shocked friends that she and Trey have not yet slept together, a drunken Charlotte goes to Trey's apartment, where she plans to rectify their previous lack of intimacy. Unfortunately, her expectations aren't quite fulfilled, and Charlotte wakes up on her wedding day with a disproportionately meaty helping of the wedding day jitters. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), meanwhile, has significant issues of her own to consider: Only minutes before Charlotte's wedding, she finally confesses to Aidan (John Corbett) her affair with Big (Chris Noth). Aidan, unsurprisingly, is less than pleased with the news, and leaves. He reappears after the wedding to tell Carrie that although he loves her, he can't accept her cheating, and dumps her. Devastated, Carrie turns to her friends for support. Carrie isn't the only one of her friends who must deal with the consequences of lying, however: Fed up with scaring off men with her status as a corporate lawyer, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) pretends to be an airline stewardess and subsequently lands a date with Harris, who says he is an emergency room doctor. Miranda finds out otherwise when, after spending the night with Harris, she cuts her finger and Harris confesses he knows nothing about medicine. Instead of confessing her own white lie, Miranda kicks Harris out, and is left bleeding with hypocrisy. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Running With Scissors Having reached the third week of her affair with the married Mr. Big (Chris Noth), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) is finding it harder and harder to deal with the accompanying guilt and subterfuge. Not only does Aidan (John Corbett) remain blissfully ignorant of her infidelity, but when both Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) -- the latter of whom catches her friend leaving a hotel with Big -- tell her she must stop the affair, Carrie must do some serious soul searching. Samantha (Kim Cattrall), meanwhile, must do some soul searching of her own when the man she is dating demands she take an AIDS test; although she is terrified, Samantha gives in and is extremely relieved when the test comes back negative. Carrie, on the other hand, is in for no such relief when she breaks all of the rules and goes for a romp with Big between his conjugal sheets. Afterwards, Big leaves, and Carrie's afterglow is extinguished by the surprise intrusion of Natasha (Bridget Moynahan), who has returned early from a vacation. Catching Carrie as she vainly tries to sneak out, an outraged Natasha informs her that she knew of their affair all along, and then trips down the stairs, losing a tooth in the process. Carrie takes Natasha to the hospital, where, upon seeing Big, she tells him their affair is finished. However, Carrie still must reckon with Aidan, who is waiting at her apartment when she returns home. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: All or Nothing During a party Samantha (Kim Cattrall) throws at her new apartment, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), tormented by guilt over her fling with Big (Chris Noth), confesses her indiscretion to Samantha. Wondering if she's trying to have it all by dating Aidan (John Corbett) -- who is committed and trustworthy -- and sleeping with the unpredictable and titillating Big, Carrie is forced to lie to the former, who discovers she's started smoking again. Carrie tells Aidan she'll quit, meaning cheating as much as smoking, and when Big informs her that he's leaving Natasha, Carrie tells him to reconsider. Samantha, meanwhile, learns some hard facts when she comes down with the flu and none of her men will take care of her, while Charlotte (Kristin Davis) does some hard bargaining with Trey's mother, Bunny (Frances Sternhagen), and ends up with a cushy pre-nup agreement. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), for her part, takes some lessons in phone sex from George, the out-of-towner she's dating, but becomes an unwilling pupil when she learns that George (Josh Hamilton) has been enjoying fiber-optic bliss with other women. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Easy Come, Easy Go Charlotte (Kristin Davis) finally has the fiancé she's always wanted, but her happiness is compromised by the fact that she ended up proposing to Trey (Kyle MacLachlan), whose glib concurrence lacked the romance Charlotte desired. However, Trey later makes it up to her by taking her to Tiffany's to buy a monolithic engagement ring. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) finds herself engaged in a much less welcome arrangement when Steve (David Eigenberg) moves into her apartment while he looks for his own place; the situation is further exacerbated by the fact that Steve has a new girlfriend, which leads Miranda to ask herself why she continues to be so unlucky. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) also finds herself in a sticky situation when she discovers that Adam (Bobby Cannavale), her latest conquest, has, as she calls it, "funky tasting spunk." When Samantha subsequently refuses to get Clintonian on him, she's forced to explain why to her annoyed lover, who doesn't believe her, so she tells him he should sample some of himself for himself. And Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) faces her own whopper of a conundrum when a drunken Big (Chris Noth) confesses to her that his marriage is not working out, and later shows up at the hotel where she's working on a deadline. When he tells her that he loves her, Carrie tries to kick Big out, but they end up in bed together instead. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: The Big Time Despite her renewed commitment to her relationship with Aidan (John Corbett), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) finds her resolve thrown into serious peril when Big (Chris Noth), possibly the world's worst ex-boyfriend, shows up at her doorstep and confesses that although he is married to Natasha, he can't stop thinking about Carrie. Another relationship is dragged into an early grave when Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) realizes she's tired of Steve's (David Eigenberg) childish, slothful tendencies and decides to break up with him. However, things are looking up for the relentlessly altar-minded Charlotte (Kristin Davis), whose burgeoning relationship with Trey (Kyle MacLachlan) is looking so promising that she decides to resist having sex for awhile in the hope that she can somehow be "re-virginized." Far from wanting to be re-virginized, Samantha (Kim Cattrall), who is worried that she may be menopausal, experiences a joyous rebirth of sorts when, while having sex with her latest conquest (Robert Lupone), she unexpectedly catches a wave on the crimson tide. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi Sex and the City: Are We Sluts? The question of romance versus sex is held up for inspection under some particularly harsh fluorescent lighting for the girls when their dilemmas force them to question certain aspects of their respective lifestyles. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) questions her own attitudes when Aidan (John Corbett) tells her he wants to take things slowly, making her realize she's used to passing up romance for sex. Samantha (Kim Cattrall), for whom sex is as unpremeditated an act as breathing, is forced to move out of her building after her neighbors discover that the robber who attacked a tenant snuck in behind Samantha's latest late-night fling. Charlotte (Kristin Davis), meanwhile, discovers that it's not only sticks and stones that hurt when the man she's dating makes a habit of verbally abusing her during sex. And Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) must deal with sexual peril of another kind when she is diagnosed with chlamydia and forced to inform all of her ex-bedmates of her infection. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
