The Wit & Wisdom of
 Sex and the City

Because when real people fall down in life, they get right back up and keep on walking. - Carrie


Later that day, I got to thinking about relationships...

There are those that open you up to something new and exotic.

Those that are old and familiar.

Those that bring up lots of questions.

Those that bring you somewhere unexpected.

Those that bring you far from where you started.

Those that bring you back.

But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all - is the one you have with yourself.

And if you find someone to love the you that you love - well, that's just fabulous!

The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don't, but in the end they're the people you always come home to. Sometimes it's the family you're born into and sometimes it's the one you make for yourself. - Carrie


Ladies, I want to thank you all for wishing me well tonight. Despite some of your personal opinions about my leaving ... Today I had a thought: What if I - What if I had never met you? - Carrie

I got to thinking about relationships and partial lobotomies: two seemingly different ideas that might just be perfect togetherólike chocolate and peanut butter.- Carrie


Soulmate: two little words - one big concept. A belief that someone, somewhere is holding the key to your heart and your dream house. All you have to do is find them. So, where is this person? And if you love someone and it didn't work out - does that mean they weren't your soulmate? Were they just a runner-up contestant in this game show called: Happily Ever After? And as you move from age box to age box ... are your chances of finding your soulmate less and less?- Carrie


Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away. - Carrie


I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love. And I don't think that love is here in this expensive suite in this lovely hotel in Paris. -Carrie


There's the kind of support you ask for and the kind of support you don't ask for. And then, there's the kind that just shows up. -Carrie


Sometimes I wondered what the big deal was about having friends. Then, I remembered about the good, the bad and the ugly times. We need - I need friends during every time in my life. That's what makes life better ... friends. -Carrie


If you are single there is one thing you should take out with you when you go out on a Saturday night ... your friends. - Carrie


Maybe the best any of us can do is not quit, play the hand we've been given and accessorize what we've got. - Carrie

Samantha: Oh, what ... My name is Samantha and I'm a love-a-holic.

Carrie & Miranda: Hi Samantha.

Miranda: I can't believe it!

Samantha: Neither can I, but here I amóMary Poppins!


Big: God knows I've made alot of mistakes with Carrie ... I've screwed it up many times, I know that.

[the girls look at each other]

Big: Look, I need your advice. You three know her better than anyone. You're the loves of her life and a guys just lucky to come in fourth. But I do love her and if you think I have the slightest chance - I'll be on the next plane to Paris. I'll roam the streets to find her ...

Miranda: Go get our girl.


Your good friend Miranda has just taken a piece of cake out of the garbage and eaten it. You will probably need this information when you check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic. - Miranda's message on Carrie's answering machine
