"I think that I was just mistaken for a mother... by a mother!" - Carrie
Petrovsky continues to open himself up to Carrie, teaching her the access code and giving her a set of keys for his apartment. He also reveals that he has a daughter - Chloe, 22 and living in Paris. He also mentions that he doesn't want to have any more children, making Carrie wonder if she'll be willing to give up a man for a baby that she may or may not want to have.
Samantha's cancer treatments hit a rough spot when her male physician offends her by mentioning that some studies show that childless women have an increased risk for breast cancer. Samantha vows to receive treatment from a female doctor. Unfortunately, the top female specialist, Dr. McAndrew, has a months-long waiting list. Samantha tries namedropping her way into the doctor's schedule, but to no avail. Luckily, McAndrew's receptionist idolizes Smith, so a quick mention of his name manages to get Samantha (and a fellow patient) onto the toughest list in Manhattan.
Miranda and Steve take their honeymoon, but Miranda finds it somewhat difficult to totally relax in the wilderness setting chosen by her husband. The lack of television, radio and other distractions (along with Steve's raging libido) drives Miranda crazy.
While Miranda and Steve are on their honeymoon, baby Brady is entrusted to both Carrie and Charlotte. Carrie enjoys her time with Brady (taking him fingerpainting at Petrovsky's), but Charlotte winds up stressing out. She flips when Brady accidentally winds up seeing a lovemaking session between her and Harry, convincing her that she's scarred the child for life. Miranda eventually assuages Charlotte's fears... somewhat.
Carrie confronts Petrovsky about potentially wanting a child some day. She says that she thinks that she could ultimately end up with him, but that she worries that this issue will eventually tear them apart. Petrovsky also sees a future for them, but is certain that he doesn't want to have any more kids. The pair embrace, leaving the issue unresolved, but Carrie's affections for Petrovsky continue to grow.
