The 16 Best Quotes from Sex and the City, which Debuted 16 Years Ago


We first met Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda sixteen years ago today when the groundbreaking series about the escapades of four single and well-off best friends living in New York City debuted on HBO. In honor of the occasion, we’ve rounded up sixteen of the foursome’s most-famous lines.

Miranda on bad breakup form:
“I once was broken up with by a guy’s doorman: ‘I’m sorry Ms. Hobbes, Jonathan won’t be coming down. Ever.’”

Miranda on choosing her wedding dress:
“I said no white, no ivory, no nothing that says ‘virgin’. I have a child. The jig is up.”

Carrie on Steve’s recovery from testicular cancer:
“Balls are to men what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag, but we’d feel naked in public without it.”

Carrie on Big’s move to Napa:
“If you’re tired, you take a napa, you don’t move to Napa.”

Samantha on her sexual orientation:
“I’m a try-sexual. I’ll try anything once.”

Charlotte on her first impression of Harry:
“I hate his name, Harry, because he is, everywhere but his head.”

Miranda leaving a voicemail for Carrie about her chocolate addiction:
“Your good friend Miranda has just taken a piece of cake out of the garbage and eaten it. You will probably need this information when you check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic.”

Carrie on moving in with Aidan:
“I used to think those people who sat alone at Starbucks writing on their laptops were pretentious posers. Now I know: They are people who have recently moved in with someone.”

 Miranda on pregnancy:
“I’m so bloated and gassy. I feel like a flotation device.”

Miranda on childbirth:
When this gets going, don’t let anyone get all cheerleadery on me. I don’t want any of that, you can do it, push push garbage!

Miranda on her son Brady’s colic:
“No, he’s not sick. He’s not hungry, he’s not teething, he just wants to scream. I’m doing everything I can but I can’t please him. If he was 35 this is when we would break up.”

Carrie on her first date with Berger:
“We were having one of those great first dates that you can only have when its not an actual date.”

Samantha to the girls on finding a soulmate:
“Listen to me! The right guy is an illusion. Start living your lives.”

Carrie on what her tombstone would say:
“It’s over for me. Here lies Carrie. She had two loves and lots o’ shoes.”

Miranda on relationship doubts:
“In a courtroom, reasonable doubt can get you off for murder. In an engagement, it makes you feel like a bad person.”

 Samantha on dressing one’s age:
“I’m fifty two and I will rock this dress.”
