Sex And The City: 8 Best Carrie And Big Moments
6. First Time He Called
During season 2, in the episode “The Man, The Myth, The Viagra” Big takes Carrie out on a romantic date to a restaurant he clearly frequents and introduces her as his girlfriend for the first time ever. It’s a special moment between the two because viewers, and even Carrie herself, have never heard Big refer to her as his girlfriend. He even serenades her! Throughout this episode, the women, mainly Miranda are skeptical about the rekindled relationship between Carrie and Big. Miranda is adamant that people don’t change and their relationship will go back to exactly what it was before. This theory is tested when Carrie invites Big to meet the girls for drinks. In typical Big fashion, he bails right before they are about to leave. She starts to doubt their relationship, but right before she’s about the break the news to them that he’s not coming after putting it off, he surprises her by showing up which once again proves that their relationship truly is different this time around.
5. The Way We Were
This episode is bitter sweet. Carrie finally realizes and accepts that she has to let Big go. After a long few months of complaining about his new found relationship with Natasha (“the idiot stick figure”) who he’s about to marry, Carrie comes to terms with the fact that “they are happy/we’re over.” The day of their engagement brunch, Carrie goes for drinks with the girls in order to forget about the party happening no that far away at the Plaza. It was during this lunch that she compares her relationship with Big to the film, The Way We Were. This causes her to draw the conclusion that she’s like the main character, Katie — she’s just too wild and free spirited and Big needs a woman who is much more plain, like Natasha. She walks over when she knows the party is long over and sees Big and Natasha just as they are leaving. He comes over to greet her and tell her she’s missed the party, and she replies with “Your girl is lovely, Hubbell.” Big then said, “I don’t get it?” and she replied with, “And you never did.” It’s hands down one of the best scenes in the entire series!
