Sex And The City: Miranda’s 10 Best Quotes

(c)HBO/courtesy Everett Collection

Sex and the City still stands as one of the best HBO series ever! The show was so successful it spawned two spin off films and continues to draw in new fans and viewers even though it’s been off the air since 2004. Starring Sarah Jessica Park, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, Sex and the City was a romantic comedy that followed four single, successful women living in New York City and told the story of their different relationships or experiences with men, or sometimes the lack there of. Each of the woman was vastly different in their own way, but especially Miranda Hobbes, played by Cynthia Nixon. She wasn’t exactly a fan favorite, but she was probably the most realistic and of course, her pessimism was hilarious! Here’s a look at Miranda’s 10 best quotes on SATC!
