Episode Quotes
Duncan: I'm just one of those weird male aberrations who prefers to be married. I like stability, I like routine. I like knowing there's people waiting for me at home. I guess that makes me sound pretty dull.
Miranda: Are you kidding? You're the heterosexual holy grail.

Samantha: Here's what I think. Round up all the divorced men and keep them in a pound. That way, you get their whole history before you take one home.

Samantha: Get out now before he stains all your sheets!
Miranda: Oh, come on, that's harsh! It could be that he was just nervous.
Carrie: The first time is always weird.
Miranda: And he probably had something to drink.
Carrie: And we just spent the whole day with his family.
Samantha: LOOK. This guy could not get his Cadillac into the garage. Honey, I'm sorry. I hate being right about this.

Charlotte: (to Samantha) Is your vagina in the New York City guidebooks? Because it should be - it's the hottest spot in town - it's always open.

Carrie: I like him.
Samantha: Well, that's real swell, but it still doesn't get the cream in the cupcake.
Carrie: But the thing I like best about him is his family.
Samantha: Mmm! Anyone there you can fuck?

Charlotte: You don't know Samantha. I do. She has so many notches on her bedpost it's practically whittled down to a toothpick.
