An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

Trivia: Carrie is carrying a small bunch of violets in this Parisian montage. What is interesting is that in France, traditionally, violets are the flowers that the husband gives his wife when he has disappointed her, or they have had a fight. Symbolically, the violets that Carrie bought for herself represent that she is continually disappointed by Aleksandr.

Anchors away - S5-E1

Trivia: During this scene, Carrie states to the other girls, "If you want to do your patriotic duty as New York women, you will come shopping with me right now and throw some much needed money Downtown". According to the commentary, this is possibly the only direct reference to New York City and 9-11 in the entire episode. Downtown NYC was very hurt by the World Trade Towers disaster, and the show thought that Carrie's character would be doing her part, which includes shopping.

The good fight - S4-E13

Trivia: During this scene when Richard and Samantha are dancing by the pool, you can see the NYC skyline behind them. The World Trade Towers were visible right between them, when this was filmed. They were later taken out, and this was the only time in the entire series that anything was digitally removed from the show. They removed the World Trade Towers for two reasons: One; they would have changed the entire tone of the scene and made it sad and tragic. Two; when the show actually aired the World Trade Towers had already been destroyed. They wanted the show to appear current, as if it was happening now and not in the past. If they had left the World Trade Towers in the shot, it would have looked like it was filmed in the past.

Shortcomings - S2-E15

Trivia: Justin Theroux, who plays Carrie's date/boyfriend Vaughn in this episode, also stars in a previous episode. In that episode, "The Monogamists" from series 1, his name is Jared and he's a novelist just like Vaughn is in the "Shortcomings" episode.

Let there be light - S6-E13

Trivia: During the scenes in the department store, they were filming at the real Barneys. Also, the blindfold that Charlotte is wearing is from Burberry. The show asked if they had Burberry blindfolds, and they didn't make them at that time. But they then tailor-made a Burberry blindfold, just for Charlotte to use in these scenes.

Splat! - S6-E18

Trivia: When Carrie is typing on her computer, she changes the question mark to a period. The moment she does this, there is no more computer typing shown in the entire series, until the very last moment in the final montage. This was done to signify that Carrie had stopped questioning her life.

Trivia: Because Cynthia Nixon doesn't have pierced ears, all of the earrings she was seen wearing were clip-ons.

Trivia: When Samantha runs into Phoebe on the street, Phoebe is really Geri Halliwell, one of the Spice Girls (Ginger Spice). At the same time that they were filming this scene in front of the SoHo House, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) and David Beckham were actually inside the SoHo House as well.

The good fight - S4-E13

Trivia: Carrie has just left her apartment and is walking down her street, which is empty. They did not close off traffic to film; it just happened to be a quiet New York City day with no traffic.
