Now that Carrie has a book deal, she and Samantha go to Barnes and Noble in search of cover ideas. Together, they come up with something 'smart and sexy'. Samantha begins to think that she's too old to have the lifestyle that she's living, and Charlotte, still worried she'll be an old maid, secretly consults self-help books for advice. Miranda continues to try to lose baby fat by joining Weight Watchers, where she meets Tom "Big Boned".
Courtney: Let me talk you through it. Blurred background, aah, fast-paced city. And you, naked with nothing but your ideas.
Carrie: I get it. But, see, no matter how fast paced the city, I always manage to get my clothes on before I leave the apartment.
Samantha: I will not be judged by you or society. I will wear whatever—and blow whomever—I want as long as I can breathe and kneel!
Charlotte: What kind of diet book are you looking for?
Miranda: I don't know. Something with a title like 'How to Lose That Baby Fat by Sitting On Your Ass.'
Stanford: Before I tell you, you have to promise not to judge.
Carrie: Do I judge?
Stanford: We all judge. That's our hobby. Some people do arts and crafts; we judge.
