[Talking about oral sex]

Charlotte York:
The truth is, I hate doing it.

Samantha Jones:
Honey, you can't be serious!

Miranda Hobbes:
Are you telling us you never perform this act?

Carrie:
She'll juggle, she'll spin plates, but she won't give head.

Charlotte York:
I don't like putting it in my mouth! I have a very sensitive gag reflex and it makes me want to puke!

Miranda Hobbes:
That's one way to say no.

Charlotte York:
It's not like I haven't tried. I practiced on a banana, I pretended it was a Popsicle, but... I just don't like it.

Miranda Hobbes:
Personally, I'm loving it, up to the point where the guy wants me to swallow.

Carrie:
Well that's just, that's really a judgment call.

Samantha Jones:
Some men just take it so personally if you don't.

Miranda Hobbes:
Some guys don't give you a choice!

Carrie:
Well that's just bad behavior.

Charlotte York:
Are you honestly telling me you like it?

Carrie:
Well, it's not my favorite thing on the menu, but you know, I'll order it from time to time, and, with the right guy, it can be nice.

Miranda Hobbes:
Oral sex is like God's gift to women. - You can get off without worrying about getting pregnant.

Samantha Jones:
Plus the sense of power is such a turn-on, maybe you're on your knees, but you got him by the balls.

Charlotte York:
You see, that is the reason that I don't want to go down this road.

Carrie:
Well sweetheart, if you're gonna get all choked up about it... [Carrie and Miranda exchange looks about the pun] , just don't do it, don't do it!

Miranda Hobbes:
But if you don't go down on him, how can you expect him to go down on you?

Charlotte York:
I don't.

Miranda Hobbes:
Oh, well, forget it! I only give head to get head!

Samantha Jones:
Me, too.

[after Gilles has slept with Carrie, he leaves her a note and a thousand dollars]

Miranda Hobbes:
[reading the note] "Thanks for the beautiful day." Must've been a hell of a beautiful day.

Carrie:
Well, it was. We had such a fantastic connection, then he leaves me money. I don't understand. What exactly about me screams "whore"?

Miranda Hobbes:
Besides the thousand dollars on the end table?

Samantha:
I just can't believe you had dinner at Balzac. Wait a minute, I thought I ordered two eggs Benedict and one spinach omelette.

Miranda Hobbes:
It's all right. I'll take the omelette.

Carrie:
You know what you guys, this isn't right. We're gonna pay for all this ourselves, all right?

Samantha:
He said order anything.

Miranda Hobbes:
The room service is one thing, but the money... - uh-uh.

Samantha:
What are you getting so uptight about? I mean, money is power. Sex is power. Therefore, getting money for sex is simply an exchange of power.

Miranda Hobbes:
Don't listen to the dime store Camille Paglia.

Carrie:
I don't know whether to take it as an incredible compliment or as an incredible insult?

Samantha:
Just take it, period.

Carrie:
Well, I wouldn't know how to return it anyway because the one thing he didn't leave me was his phone number.

Miranda Hobbes:
He paid in full, what more is there to talk about? Who is this Amalita Amalfi character anyway? I'm concerned you've been drafted into a ring of high-class hookers.

Carrie:
She isn't a hooker. She's like an international party girl.

Miranda Hobbes:
She's a hooker with a passport.

Samantha Jones:
[on the phone] I am so f***ed.

Carrie:
What's wrong?

Samantha Jones:
No, I mean, literally. I have been f***ed every way you can be f***ed.

Carrie:
If you keep talking like that, I'm gonna have to charge you by the minute. [goes to a voiceover] As I searched for my morning Marlboro Light, Samantha proceed to give me a rundown of her night with Jon - no "H", no inhibitions. [voiceover ends]

Samantha Jones:
We did with him on top. Me on top. Me on my side.

Carrie:
Him on his side?

Samantha Jones:
Oh, God, yes. On his back, on his side, on his face. Have you ever done that?

Carrie:
It's too early to remember.

Samantha Jones:
Well, do it immediately. It is fabulous. These guys in their twenties, they are up for anything. How did it go with uh, you and Sam?

Carrie:
We kissed.

Samantha Jones:
Just kissed?

Carrie:
No. We just kissed for five hours, - at the club, in front of the club, on the corner of the club. I forgot how much fun it is to just kiss, you know, even if I did only get two hours of sleep.

Samantha Jones:
I didn't sleep at all.

Carrie:
[narrating voiceover] As Samantha went on about her sexual escapades, I glanced down at my arm. There it was in Bic blue. Twenty-something Sam's phone number. I had this sudden urge to call but I'd just left him. Hell, my lips were still swollen. Why this sudden craving? Are men in their twenties the new designer drug? Yes, Samantha, Miranda and I were all recreational users, but were we getting into something w couldn't handle? Okay, we were attracted to younger men for various reasons. But I couldn't help but wonder, what do they see in us?
