Directed by Charles McDougall
Written by Michael Patrick King
"Maybe we should get married." - Charlotte
"Alrighty." - Trey
While he continues to try and find an apartment in New York City's overpriced real estate market, Steve has taken up residency on Miranda's couch. Despite his lack of an apartment, Steve finds a new romantic interest, which saddens Miranda and makes her wonder what she's doing wrong. Charlotte is mixed with bittersweet feelings herself: she's now engaged to Trey, but it didn't happen the way she envisioned. Charlotte ended up proposing to Trey, whose response was "alrighty!" Charlotte is rather devastated, until a few days later when Trey spontaneously suggests they go to Tiffany's to buy the most beautiful engagement ring they can find. Samantha's latest sexy professional, Adam, is great except for the "funky tasting spunk." When she refuses to go down there on a future date, Adam gets annoyed, and Samantha is forced to spell it out for him. Adam thinks she's just making excuses, so Samantha challenges him to taste it for himself. Meanwhile, Carrie bumps into a drunk Big at a furniture show. He blurts out that he and Natasha are not working out. If that wasn't enough, he calls Carrie several times, and learns from Aidan she's working on a deadline at a hotel next door. Big shows up at the hotel, and drops the bomb: he says he's made a mistake, and he really loves Carrie. Carrie runs for the elevators, but Big pushes his way in, which leads to the bedroom, which ends with sharing a cigarette in bed.
