And just as Carrie thinks she's in "the safe zone," she sees Aidan. Aidan has on the Texas tuxedo: jeans and a denim jacket. Then my b.f. Ben comes downstairs, takes a look at Carrie's outfit, and says, "That's hideous. Never wear a skirt over pants." I protest, since I like how Carrie's put together. Ben says, "What, you think that's cute? I'm not even gay and I know it's awful. It's horrible, it's like she's trying too hard to set fashion trends. Who is that, John Corbett from Lucky? He's LUCKY to still be on this show, since that thing on F/X is going to get canceled." Ben is such a kvetch. He's Kvetchy Smurf. I love him, even though he's so mean. Anyway, the show. Aidan? Has a baby now. He's wearing it in a sling. Carrie says stupidly, "I have a date!" One of my favorite songs by The Vandals, by the way. Anyway, Aidan's baby is Tate. Bug-Eyed Tate. Aidan calls him "Tater, since he looks like one. No hair, big eyes." He married another furniture designer. Does Carrie want to meet her? Not really. Maybe he and Carrie can get coffee sometime. They both know that won't ever happen. He asks Carrie where she's running to, and it makes her think.
Carrie goes around the corner and sees the movie theater. The movie she and Berger are going to see is starting soon. So, she calls him and asks him to get together right now, with her all looking like shit and stuff. Berger is all, "Hey! That's so weird, I'm right in that neighborhood!" Must be fate! Must be. Berger walks up and says, "This blows!" Because he had a special outfit picked out, too. But no matter. Carrie already bought the tickets, so he's buying the popcorn and candy. Does she like candy? Good, because Berger is the candy-man. "Sammy Davis has nothing on me!" Carrie is surprised that he doesn't even need the "Jr." Aww -- they're dating cute, and while casually dressed. That is so fucking right now. Then they go through the revolving door, and Carrie screams. Yeow! Her VO gets super-saccharine and says, "At the close of Wall Street that day, the NASDAQ was down, but amazingly, our stock was still up."
