"That's the thing about Manhattan, the most exclusive clubs only have a couple members and they're very hard to find." - Carrie
It's Saturday night and Carrie is raring to go out on the town, but Aidan would prefer to stay home with a bucket of KFC. So, Carrie invites the girls to go out dancing at a hot gay club. At the club, Charlotte runs into Anthony and his friend who works for House and Garden magazine and they dance the night away. Carrie makes friends with a cute gay boy named Oliver at the bar. Miranda runs into Max, a junior associate at her firm. He asks her not to tell the partners he's gay and she asks him not to tell them she's pregnant. When Carrie gets home she's ready for some action but Aidan wants to sleep. Samantha, who took Ecstasy at the club, has X-cellent sex with Richard and ends up declaring her love for him.
Carrie has lunch with her new gay date Oliver. She wonders: To be in a couple, do you have to put your single self on a shelf?
At work, Miranda finds out Max has spilled the beans on her being with child; she then lets it slip that he's gay. They both realize it's time to stop hiding their personal lives. Charlotte finds out that House and Garden wants to shoot her apartment, but Trey doesn't want to do it. He abruptly tells her that she can have the apartment and that he'll move back in with his mother.
Samantha talks to Richard about that thing I said the other night. Richard says it doesn't matter, he's knows she was on Ecstasy. Samantha realizes that she secretly wished it did matter to him.
Carrie gets ready for another fabulous night out with Oliver and puts her engagement ring on a chain around her neck. Aidan offers to go, but she convinces him not to. At the club, Oliver flirts with men and Carrie starts to wonder what she's doing there. She realizes she wants to be with Aidan and heads for home.
As Charlotte prepares for the House and Garden photo shoot, Trey shows up. He tells her that he wants to at least do that for her. They pose as the happy married couple they no longer are.
