Miranda is sorting laundry, and she finds a pair of Steve's tighty whiteys with a huge skid mark on them. She gets all disgusted and almost runs away from the offending underwear. What did she think was going to happen when you do laundry? Skid marks are a typical work hazard when washing dirty underwear. Duh! Like her ass has been so clean all her life that she never once made skids. I guess with her panties, you would have to watch out for diseased discharge in the crotch.
Miranda and Carrie are walking down the street together. Carrie looks like she is wearing a leftover costume from Clash of the Titans and has a purple flower corsage on her wrist. Was she coming home from a prom with a toga theme? Miranda is munching on carrots and not even offering any to Carrie, which seems a little stingy. Miranda tells Carrie she is living with "Skidmarks Guy," and Carrie starts laughing. They start talking about why men leave skidmarks, and how that leads to peeing on the seat. I would rather live with a man who has poopy pants than a man who shoots fire out his penis when he urinates because the woman he sleeps with has an STD, but that's just me. Then Miranda starts talking about her boring sex life, and Carrie suggests that Miranda is mistaking falling into a rut with intimacy. Miranda thinks that she and Steve have generic sex, and that they have a "race to have an orgasm." And Carrie reminds her that at least she is getting some regularly. Miranda agrees that they always whine, whether they have men or not. Knowing is half the battle, girls. Carrie then asks Miranda if she remembers how Big kept her away from his parents, and how much it hurt her. Miranda remembers, and then Carrie tells her that CIM wants her to meet his parents, and she isn't sure she wants to meet them. Miranda tells her she is no hurry to meet Steve's parents, and I'm thinking that Carrie's relationship with Big was completely different than her relationship with CIM, especially since she went out with Big for two years, and she has only been with CIM for three weeks. If I were dating someone for only three weeks and they wanted me to meet his parents, I would be a little wary too. Carrie theorizes that CIM is acting how she wished Big would have acted, and she is acting like Big. If that is true, let's hope that Carrie dumps CIM, moves to France, meets a young French guy, and takes him back to the US and marries him.
As Carrie is sitting in front of her computer, we find out the question of the week: "Do we need drama to make a relationship work?" Well, if you are a neurotic thirtysomething living in NYC, you sure do.
