Cut to Miranda walking into her apartment and looking around her neat, empty bedroom. She crosses her arms and frowns. For the radio listeners, Carrie VO's that Miranda "didn't like it."
Meanwhile, at D&D, Samanda, er Samantha struts out of her office in a form-fitting orange tank dress and barks at Matt to send some invitations to the printers. He disregards her orders. She commands him to do what she asked, and reminds him that he's her assistant. They growl in each other's faces, like the "alpha dogs" Carrie blathers about in a voice-over. The phone rings. Matt barks at the caller, telling whoever it is that they "have a shitty attitude, too," and "[their] parties suck." He slams down the phone. Samantha fires him on the spot, although most New York PR assistants would get a promotion and a raise for that behavior. Samantha explains that Matt's dismissal is actually "good news" because "now [she] can fuck [him]." She grabs him and forces herself on him. They argue some more about whether to do it on the chair or the desk. As if Samantha doesn't have a bed or a fold-out sofa in her office! As if Samantha's behavior is comical and not repulsive! Whatever! (And, yeah, I know that Matt's comments showed that the sex was consensual. But everything leading up to it was incredibly creepy and practically a tacit endorsement of sexual harassment at the workplace, which is definitely not cool, IMHO.) ["And if it was a man who fired a woman so he could fuck her, no doubt the country would be outraged." -- Nicole]
Then Miranda arrives at her apartment. Carrie VO's that she invited Steve over so they could make up. He greets her and she walks in with grocery bags, explaining that she was late because of work. Her explanation gets more and more hysterical until she accidentally drops and shatters a bottle of marinara sauce on the floor. She throws down the grocery bags and explains that she can't let Steve move in because she "drops things" and she's "stubborn" and she's a poor housekeeper (what happened to the cleaning lady in the last episode?) and Steve will "see all that" and she's "scared." She doesn't want to lose him. Steve hugs her and tells her he's not going anywhere. Miranda cries on his shoulder, just like "a woman." Carrie VO's that Steve moved in a week later.
Then Carrie's voice-over segues to Charlotte's apartment, where Charlotte is "moving her 'man' into her place." Cut to the picture of Charles-lotte hanging on the wall. Charlotte appraises her male visage, as Carrie VO's that Charlotte never saw Barrett again after they macked, because she was "too embarrassed" about her aggressive, masculine behavior during his seduction. This fits Charlotte's character, but doesn't explain how she got the print from the photographer if she never had contact with him after they knocked boots. Whatever.
