I would like to start off by giving props to everyone in the forums for having an intelligent discussion of this episode without going down the pro-life/pro-choice debate road. This is a heated issue, and it shows what a mature group of people interact on the forums, and I’m proud of that fact. Now, if people would just learn not to start new topics to ask about a song played in an episode, everything would be perfect. Anyway, on with the show!
Carrie is running down the street in her Psycho Newsies outfit she wore a few weeks ago, yelling, "Extra Extra! Read all about it! I have a shoestring tied around my hair with pompoms on the ends!" as her voice-over tells us that sometimes people get to a crossroads and sometimes it is loud and busy. Carrie runs into moving traffic and cars honk at her and people yell at her, but unfortunately no one hits her. I do think that some guy does yell out, "What the fuck are you wearing, freak?" Miranda is waiting for her at a park or something, and Carrie runs up to her, apologizing that she is ten minutes late. Miranda tells her that she is three weeks late, and then has to explain to Carrie that she's pregnant. Carrie asks her if she is serious, and Miranda is all, "No, I thought it might be a fun thing to say." She then tells Carrie that she took three EPT tests and just had it confirmed by the doctor. Carrie asks Miranda when she had sex, and Miranda confesses to the pity fuck she gave Steve. She then confesses that, since Steve only had one ball and she has a lazy ovary, she didn’t think it was possible for her to get pregnant so they didn’t use a condom. Okay, now, last season she got an STD. Don’t you think that she would have used a condom to, say, prevent the spread of STDs? She doesn’t know who the hell Steve has been with for the past year, except for that one girlfriend. I think it was pretty irresponsible for the writers to only think of a condom as a means of birth control. Yeah, yeah, the writers needed a reason for Miranda to get pregnant, but they could have used the old "the condom broke" excuse, or said the condoms in her apartment were so old they were starting to disintegrate or something. Carrie asks Miranda if she's told Steve yet, and Miranda tells her that she isn’t going to tell Steve because she isn’t having the baby. Then she asks Carrie if she should tell Steve, and of course Carrie has no advice to give.
Carrie then tells us that Charlotte got a surprise of her own that day, and we see Charlotte sitting on the toilet, and she finds out she's gotten her period and is very disappointed.
The girls are at their restaurant, and Samantha is wearing a blue muumuu that Patricia Fields stole from the Three’s Company wardrobe department, and Miranda has about ten orange watch bands around her wrist, but no watch. Charlotte slams a box of Tampax tampons down on the table. Carrie is excited that Charlotte brought party favors, and Charlotte starts whining about not getting pregnant, blah blah blah, five months trying, whine whine whine, women over thirty-five have a harder time conceiving, blah blah blah fertility-cakes. Carrie assures her she will get pregnant, and Samantha makes a lame joke about people being able to get pregnant because of so many babies crying in planes. Charlotte thinks that it's her problem that she can’t get pregnant, and tells the girls all the sexual positions she has taken to get pregnant and how she has had sex with Trey seventy-three times without a condom, and she asks the girls how much semen has been wasted. Carrie looks to Samantha for a rough estimate of how much sperm that really is. Charlotte then whines about how, when she was in her twenties, she spent so much time trying not to get pregnant that she could have been screwing around with anyone and everyone, and that she should have been so lucky to get pregnant by mistake.
