In the urban jungle of NYC, Carrie and friends prowl everywhere from Fifth Avenue to 42nd Street as they forage through the wilderness of married pigs, twenty-somethings and ghosts of boyfriends past in their search for the Real Thing – and a decent Cosmopolitan.
Carrie is introduced to Big's mother as 'a friend'.
Carrie's embarrassing episode of flatulence in Big's presence causes her to spiral into a massive bout of insecurity about her relationship with him.
The friends go to a baby shower. Charlotte finds her made-up name for her own future child has been stolen. Samantha holds an 'I'm not having a baby' shower party.
