Synopsis

Directed by: Allen Coulter
Written by: Michael Patrick King

"The ratio of women to men in this city is huge. All they have to do is sit outside, have a beer and wait for the Jessicas and Susans to come to them." - Miranda

Samantha and Carrie are having trouble getting their beauty sleep. Samantha is bothered by the late-night cackling and ranting of the transsexual prostitutes outside her window, while Carrie is awakened a tad too early by roosters crowing on a nearby rooftop. Carrie and Miranda spot Steve and Aidan and their dogs at an outdoor cafe. They decide they can't avoid interaction and approach their exes, only to discover they have new girlfriends. Carrie wonders if maybe everything isn't the man's fault, if maybe the problem is them. Carrie gets an even bigger wake-up call when Big rings her up and asks her to lunch at the Boathouse in Central Park. Carrie agrees to go and when she confides in Miranda, the friends have their first big fight. Miranda tells Carrie that it's a huge mistake to see Big again and Carrie calls Miranda "judgmental." Miranda, who feels like she's in a life rut, runs into Steve at her local Chinese restaurant. They have a nice friendly exchange, and Steve allays some of Miranda's fears. Meanwhile, Charlotte, in her new-old single-girl apartment gets a 4am visit from Trey, who turns on the heat and manages to keep his Schooner going with Rebecca. After their sexy session, the couple has a real heart-to-heart about their marriage, but no decisions are made. Carrie calls Miranda before she meets Big and the girls make up. At the Boathouse, Carrie and Big fall into the pond and go back to Big's place to dry off. Carrie says the two are like "war buddies." Big hints that Carrie can stay a while, but Carrie says "It's a good idea in theory, but somehow it doesn't quite work." She leaves. After some serious cat-fighting with the transsexuals, Samantha ends up inviting them, plus Carrie, Miranda, and Samantha, over for a roof party. The girls all get down, drink Flirtinis and try to stop obsessing.
