The three of them are sitting in the back of the cab, and Carrie is wearing a blue beret with a pin on it. Ah, I get it. Beatniks wear berets. Beatniks like jazz. Carrie thinks she can go with a beatnik look when going to a jazz club. Carrie is wrong. See Carrie look bad. Bad, Carrie, bad. The Music Man is wearing the silly leather porkpie hat that he had on when he was in the club, which makes his head look weird. Music Man makes a jazz joke, and Carrie giggles. Big pouts and says, “Cabs are bullshit.” Uh, okay, Big. I don’t see a gun pointing at your head and making you stay in the cab. I guess he saw Carrie acting like a fourteen-year-old and decided to run with it. Music Man asks Carrie for her number, and Big gives her a pen to write her number with. The cab stops, and Carrie gets out, and as the car drives away she sees that Big got out of the car too. Carrie yells at him because she thinks that Music Man will think they are together. Big thinks she is attracted to Music Man because of the hat he was wearing. Well, Carrie does like unflattering fashion accessories… Then Big starts making fun of Music Man’s bad breath. Carrie gets annoyed and asks Big what kind of friends they are. He tells her that they are friends that go out and do things together, and sometimes wiggle their eyebrows at each other. Carrie tells him that there will be no wiggling eyebrows at each other, and she tells him she's going to bed. Big is all, “You like Jazz Man! Jazz Man!” Carrie pretends to ignore him and goes inside.
Carrie then tells us that she couldn’t get to sleep because she kept thinking about what happened in the taxi. As she is getting out of the shower and putting a towel around herself, the phone rings, and it's Music Man playing jazz music on his stereo into the phone. He tells her that the song makes him think of her, and then her call-waiting goes off. She answers her other call, and lo and behold -- it's Big! Who could have seen that coming? Everyone? Yeah, I thought so. She tells Big she has to go and he asks if she has another call. She tells him she does and he says, “Porkpie? Tell him he needs mints!” Haw! That was a good zinger! Carrie is not amused and hangs up on him. Music Man asks her out Saturday night, and tells her, “Don’t bring the angry guy.” Touché! As soon as Carrie hangs up with Music Man, the phone rings; it's Big again. He asks Carrie what she sees in that guy, and she tells him, “He knows when to say goodbye.” And she hangs up again. In that last part of the scene, you can see Big turn a light shade of green.
As Miranda is getting out of bed, Carrie tells us that Miranda had decided that she wanted to let down some boundaries. She decides to go to the bathroom with the door open. Wow! Miranda is living on the edge! Cartoon-man walks in, and Miranda gets all embarrassed. He asks her if she has any bagels, and she tells him where to find them. He takes some toilet paper and blows his nose and walks out. Miranda gets all flustered and closes the door. I wonder if she would be so bent out of shape if one of the girls walked into the room while she was going to the bathroom. Is it just a boy thing?
