Sex And The City: 8 Best Carrie And Big Moments
Sex and the City was one of the best series on television during the late ’90s and early 2000s. The HBO romantic comedy followed the personal and professional lives of four New York City women in their thirties. Much of the focus was around their relationships, mainly Carrie and Mr. Big’s. Throughout the entire six-season run, these two were off and on, then off and on, but one thing always remained the same — they were perfect for each other! Viewers were split into two groups: team Aiden and team Big, even though Aiden would have been the smart choice, it was clear Carrie was destined to be with Big. Even through the ups and downs, these two always found their way back to one another and have now become one of television’s most iconic couples. Here’s a look at the best 8 moments between Carrie and Big on Sex and the City!
8. First Date
Once upon a time, Carrie met Mr. Big when she initially bumped into him on the street and he stopped to help her pick up the contents of her purse aka cosmetics and condoms. They played a bit of cat and mouse in the beginning as they continuously bumped into each other, but she really started to fall for the idea of Mr. Big when he came to visit her at a coffee shop and said, “After a while, you just want to be with the one that makes you laugh.” After a few failed attempts, they have their first ‘big’ date in episode 6. By that point, there had been such a build up between the two of them that they ended up sleeping together before they even make it to dinner! Afterwards, instead of going to a fancy restaurant, they go to a small Chinese restaurant and have the most perfectly imperfect first date!
7. San Francisco
In the episode “The Big Journey” in season 5, Carrie and Samantha travel to San Francisco on Carrie’s book tour. The main reason Carrie wants to go is so that she can have a friendly rendezvous with Big, but things don’t go as smooth as she would have hoped. Carrie and Samantha take the train from New York to San Francisco which ends up being a disaster! Their deluxe suite is no bigger than a sardine can and then the trip goes from bad to worse when Carrie shows up to her reading only to find out she’s the opening act and everyone is there to see Mr. Winkle. Fortunately, things turn around unexpectedly when she gets a question from the audience from a man who she can’t see. Finally she asks him to stand up and the mysterious man turns out to be Mr. Big! It didn’t matter that the rest of the audience wasn’t there to see her because he was. He surprised her by showing up at her book reading and the two make plans to have dinner later that night.
