S3 Ep 13: Escape from New York
Directed by John Coles
Written by Becky Hartman Edwards and Michael Patrick King
"When visiting L.A., there are two things you simply must do. One is rent a fabulous car. Two is learn how to drive it." - Carrie
In a spur of the moment mad dash, the girls (minus Charlotte) head to Los Angeles in search of the care-free life. Within minutes, Samantha meets Garth, a model -- a dildo model that is. "Mr. Dildo" invites the girls to a party for his new product. Carrie and Miranda find the celebration revolting, but Samantha enjoys it and ends up going home with the guest of honor. At his apartment, Garth reads Samantha poetry and wants to get to know her, but she's focused on sampling the goods. Meanwhile, Carrie meets with Hollywood producer Matthew McConaughey who is interested in making a movie based on her sex columns. McConaughey makes tasteless remarks about Carrie and Big's relationship and then gets skeevy with Carrie, intimating they should sleep together. Carrie leaves in disgust. These days, Miranda wishes someone would see her as a sex object. After feeling invisible to men for too long, Miranda takes a wild ride on a mechanical bull, determined to unleash her inner sex goddess. And after a sexless honeymoon in Bermuda, Charlotte resolves to get to the bottom of Trey's sexual underperformance. She devises a little experiment and discovers Trey's issues are not physical.
