Char runs in the park, passing everyone else on the track. She cuts through a grassy area away from the river and passes a woman with one of those jog-strollers, avec baby. Char looks at it, then runs faster to pass the stroller. She sprints away, and Carrie VOs that Charlotte had won everything she'd ever tried to, except "the baby race."
Mir and Steve hang in bed together, looking at real estate listings. Mir scoffs at one ad, which reads as a two-bedroom, but Mir says in reality is a "crack den on an air shaft." Heh. When I was house-shopping, I saw places that were so scary I half-expected to find a body in the tub. I'd go up the stairs whispering, "Here I come, Mister Killer!" Pentagrams on the walls. I didn't even blink. Mir says she's a Manhattan girl, ergo she doesn't like anything not-Manhattan. Oh, come on. That attitude is so ridiculous. Plus, it makes non-Manhattanites hate you. I mean, I was BORN in Manhattan and lived there until we moved here (which I wasn't thrilled about), and most of the people that have this attitude are from fucking Kansas or Massachusetts. Like, what's the entitlement about? The pride? The exclusivity? You MOVED to a CITY and now you think anywhere else is Shitsville? Get over it. Manhattan is now as much of a StarbucksGapDisneyVirginMegastoreVille as the Mall of Fucking America, and those Manhattan snobs aren't going to move to Minnesota, are they now? Why not? All the same shit is there! Sure, there's no Magnolia Bakery at the Mall of America...YET. But still. I mean, Carrie DRAGGED her worldly "lovah" to MC-FUCKING-DONALD'S this season with the rationale that she's "an American" and McDeathburger is WHAT WE ALL LIKE. Well, that attitude (and Giuliani) made Manhattan GENERIC AS FUCK, complete with extremely high property values, and no smoking inside. Oh, I'm kidding, I love New York. But I can live in other places without breaking into hives, is all I'm saying. And I can smoke! So, in your face, Manhattan. So, Miranda, after scoffing and shrugging, "Sleeping in the dining room isn't so bad," decides to look at the house in Brooklyn.
