Sex And The City: 8 Funniest Episodes
Sex and the City was widely popular throughout its entire six seasons which aired from 1998 to 2004. Like many other HBO shows, SATC was the first of it’s kind as it tackled not only different societal issues and timely controversies, but also broke down a lot of barriers when it comes to women and relationships and it did so in a way that was lighthearted and comical. Sex and the City followed four professional women in their thirties, living in New York City trying to navigate their personal lives and relationships. The show has become a cultural phenomenon because, not only is it just as popular today as it was 12 years ago, it’s even more so! It’s one of those series we can watch over and over again and it just never gets old — it’s timeless just like the city. Here’s a look at 8 of the funniest episodes from the Sex and the City series!
8. “Anchors Away” Season 5, Episode 1
This was the first episode filmed after Sept. 11, 2001 and was supposed to serve as a tribute to the city. Not only did it manage to give a proper shout out to the city of New York, it was also one of Samantha’s funniest episodes! Still reeling from her break up, Samantha is finally past the stage of mourning Richard and onto the revenge phase. Richard spends the whole episode trying to get back together with Samantha even though she does everything in her power to punish him. She prints out hundreds of flyers plastered with Richard’s face branding him as a lyin’ cheat and passes them out around his neighborhood. She tapes them to posts, hands them out to pedestrians and leaves them on the windshields of parked cars making sure that everyone in town knows who he is and what he did. When she goes to meet him for drinks later, she wastes no time hearing his apology. She grabs her dirty martini and, in the most satisfying scene in the history of television, throws her drink in his face and says: “Dirty martini, dirty bastard.” Cue the mic drop.
7. “Hot Child in the City” Season 3, Episode 15
Miranda and Samantha are two women who are typically very confident in themselves, but in this episode they most definitely aren’t. Miranda is told she needs to get braces because she’s a “tongue thruster.” It’s safe to say no one wants to get braces, especially a single 30-something woman living in New York City. Meanwhile, Samantha takes on a new 13-year-old client, Jenny Bryer, who somehow has more money and attitude than she does! Jenny is interested in throwing an “A-list Bat Mitzvah” with a red carpet, guest list and all. While Carrie, Samantha and Miranda are out for lunch they run into Jenny Bryer and some of her friends. The women are shocked that these pre-teen girls act and dress just like them. Miranda notices one of the girls also has braces and asks her if her braces are blue, to which the girl replies: “No, they’re sapphire. Oh my god, look, you have the old fashioned kind. I didn’t even know they made those anymore.” Miranda deems herself a 34-year-old nerd and has her braces removed by the end of the episode.
