Carrie comes home

Harry's home. Char, in a pink Polo top, says she's a bad wife, she ordered Chinese. Harry has something from China too: a baby. They get her in six months. Char begins to cry. The picture is so cute. Char nods and cries and says, "That's our baby. I know it. That's really our baby." Aww!

Mir reads the paper. Magda walks up and says, "What you did. That was love. You love." Mir looks up and says, "Let's not make a big deal of it to Steve. It would just upset him." Magda kisses her forehead, and I think I see a tear fall off Mir's face. Or maybe that was me.

Smith lets himself into Sam's apartment. Sam's sleeping. He wakes her up with a "hey, baby." He forgot to tell her something. He loves her. She asks if he flew all the way home to tell her that. He asks, "Can you think of a better reason?" She can't. Then, with tears streaking down her face, she says, "You have meant more to me than any man I've ever known." They kiss. Oh man, I'm crying now.

Carrie gets out of Big's car, in jeans, a pink top, and a furry coat. She looks up at her apartment with love. Then Big rolls down the window, and with his face framed in the car window like we've seen so many times before, he says he doesn't live here anymore, and the Four Seasons won't check him in until one. Carrie says, "Oh! Did you want to come up?" He says, "Abso-fuckin-lutely." And, of course, it's on. Is it right in the long run? I think not. But is it right for right now? Yes. Righter than Alek. She smiles and lets him follow her up the steps to her apartment.

Brunch with the girls. Mir sees Carrie enter the place, and she screams so loud that my dog Artie tries to jump inside the TV to kill the squeak, like he does with toys. The four friends, together again, talk over each other and look at the picture of Char's baby, cheating it out to the camera. This ending is exactly what the majority of posters on the forums wanted, of course. The four friends together, and Carrie with Big. So, why does there need to be a movie? I think the demand has been satisfied. But who knows. I don't think I could stand a Carrie VO in Dolby. She begins for the final time: "There are relationships that open you up to something new and exotic." Like espresso? "Those that are old and familiar." The four friends spill out onto the sidewalk, in their coats and ankle boots. I saw photos from this scene in In Touch magazine. Carrie types in her apartment and VOs, "Those that bring up lots of questions...those that bring you somewhere unexpected...those that bring you far from where you started. And those that bring you back." We see Char and Harry walking their doggies, Mir and her family around the table, and Sam bouncing on top of Smith, winding up to a siren-sounding orgasm, as the camera pans by her flowers, now in bloom. "But the most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship you have of all, is the one you have with yourself." So, it is sort of like an "I choose me" Kelly Taylor ending. Carrie walks with a shopping bag from Manolo Blahnik, and her cell phone rings. The caller ID says, "John." She answers with a "Hi!" It's Big. His house is on the market. New York, get ready, 'cause he's coming back. The VO continues, "And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous!" Carrie walks on in her Fendi fur, swinging her bag, with the techno music pumping. Shoes, Big, and everyone's happy. The end!
