Sex and the City Season 1 Episode 10: "The Baby Shower" Quotes
Carrie: What if I am?
Miranda: If you am, you am.
Carrie: I don't think I'd be very good at this. I mean, am I maternal?
Carrie: You know when I was a little girl, I left my favorite baby doll out in the rain for four days. Her face peeled off. That can't be good.
Miranda: Yeah, but I mean if you...
Carrie: I shaved my Barbie's head when I was mad at her.
Miranda: When I was little, I took a rubber band and put it around my dog Pepper's snout.
(Carrie and Miranda at the drug store)
Carrie: I'm on total ovary overload. Which kind do I get?
Miranda: Here. This one's on sale. Half off.
Carrie: Sweetie, I just spent 395 dollars on a pair of open-toed Gucci's last week. This is not the place to be frugal.
(Carrie's period is late seven days)
Samantha: Oh honey, gray area. True, you're in front of the firing squad, but you haven't been shot.
Miranda: I was once ten days late.
Carrie: Really? Were you having sex?
Carrie: You don't have to lose yourself to have a kid. I know plenty of cool, hip mothers who live in the City and who still have great careers and stuff.
Samantha and Miranda: (at the same time) Who?
Carrie: Charlotte, come on. You're still young. You have plenty of time to have children.
Charlotte: No, no I don't. I don't want to be one of those 40-year-old moms. (Glances at Samantha) No, no offence.
Samantha: Well I don't want to be one of them either. There are no frozen eggs in my freezer.
Charlotte: Stop it! You're not gonna clean up at your own shower.
Laney's friend: Yeah relax, cause once little Todd or Shayla comes around, you'll never stop cleaning up.
Charlotte: Shayla? Did you say Shayla?
Laney's friend: It's so unique, isn't it?
Charlotte: It's so my name!
Laney's friend: I thought your name was Charlotte.
Charlotte: No, it's not my name, it's my name! My secret baby name that I made up when I was eleven years old for my daughter when I had her. I told you. Don't tell me you don't remember.
Laney: No I'm sorry. I really don't.
Carrie: (voiceover) A complete lie. She remembered. We all remembered. Charlotte had made us all swear never to use it.
Laney: Anyway I think my husband heard it somewhere else.
Charlotte: Really, where, because I didn't tell him.
Laney: I can't believe you're freaking out over a name.
Laney's friend: I mean, you're not even pregnant.
Charlotte: That's not the point!
Samantha: (joining) What's going on?
Charlotte: She stole my baby name.
Samantha: You bitch! Let's go.
Carrie: Oh shit! I totally spaced. I forgot to buy her a present. How tacky is it to give the mother-to-be a fistful of cash?
Samantha: Oh don't worry about it. (Shows a bottle of Scotch) You can go in on mine.
Carrie: You bought a pregnant woman a bottle of Scotch?
Samantha: The invitation said BYOB.
Miranda: That meant, "Bring Your Own Baby".
Carrie: What did you get her?
Carrie: Seriously. What'd you get her?
Miranda: Seriously. They're pastel.
Samantha: So help me, she fucks on my couch, she buys it.
Carrie: Isn't that how you got the couch from me?
Samantha: Frankly, I think it's sad, the way she's using a child to validate her existence.
Carrie: Exactly. Why can't she just use sex and a nice cocktail like the rest of us?
I don't have a baby! Everybody drink!Samantha
I just realized; maybe it's maturity or the wisdom that comes with age, but the witch in Hansel and Gretel, she's very misunderstood. I mean, the woman builds her dream house, and these brats come along, and start eating it.Miranda
