Miranda Hobbs: We're just choosy.
-- S02E03 The Freak Show

Charlotte York: Everyone needs a man. That's why I rent. If you own and he still rents, then the power structure is all off. It's emasculating. Men don't want a woman who's too self-sufficient.

-- S02E05 Four Women and a Funeral

-- S02E10 The Caste System

Miranda Hobbes: You double-booked?
Carrie Bradshaw: How do you conceive pulling this one off?

Samantha Jones: My god, you're turning into a man!
Carrie Bradshaw: (voiceover) Apparently Charlotte had done more than just break a pattern. She had actually changed genders.

Carrie Bradshaw: (voiceover) And just like that, she was a woman again.

-- S03E07 Drama Queens

Samantha Jones: Easy?! You men have no idea what we’re dealing with. Teeth placement and jaw stress, and suction and gag reflex. And all the while bobbing up and down, moaning and trying to breathe through our noses. Easy? Honey, they don’t call it a job for nothing.
-- S03E09 Easy Come, Easy Go

Carrie Bradshaw: It's hard to find people who will love you no matter what. I was lucky enough to find three of them.

-- S04E15 Change of a Dress

Carrie Bradshaw: Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away.
-- S04E18 I Heart NY

Season 05

Miranda Hobbes: Why do we get stuck with old maid and spinster and men get to be bachelors and playboys?
-- S05E03 Luck Be an Old Lady

Carrie Bradshaw: In New York, they say, you're always looking for a job, a boyfriend or an apartment. So, let's say you have two out of three and they're fabulous. Why do we let the thing we don't have affect how we feel about all the things we do have? Why does one minus a plus one feel like it adds up to zero?
-- S05E05 Plus One is the Loneliest Number

Season 06

Billy: All I'm saying is that there's no good way to break up with someone.
Carrie Bradshaw: Well, it's funny you should mention that Billy, because, actually, there is. You can have the guts and the courtesy to tell a woman, to her face, that you no longer want to see her. Call me crazy but I think that you can make a point of ending your relationship in a manner that does not include an e-mail, a doorman, or a missing persons report. I think you could all get over your fear of looking like the bad guy and actually have the uncomfortable break-up conversation because, here's what; avoiding that is what makes you the bad guy. And just so you know, Alan...
Andrew: Andrew.
Carrie Bradshaw: Uh huh. Most women aren't angry, irrational psychos. We just want an ending to a relationship that... that is thoughtful and decent and honors what we had together. So my point, Billy, is this; there is a good way to break-up with someone, And it doesn't include a post-it!
-- S06E07 The Post-It Always Sticks Twice

Carrie Bradshaw: Think about it. If you are single, after graduation there isn't one occasion where people celebrate you... Hallmark doesn't make a 'congratulations, you didn't marry the wrong guy' card. And where's the flatware for going on vacation alone?
-- S06E09 A Woman's Right to Shoes

Carrie Bradshaw: I'm someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient,consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love.
-- S06E20 An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux)

Carrie Bradshaw: Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous.
