Episode 75: ”To Market, to Market”
Carrie couldn’t help but wonder… ”Why do we keep investing?”
Plot Carrie frets about her first official date with Berger, so she plans a ”sim-u-date” with a graphic designer to calm her nerves; Miranda realizes she’s in love with Steve (again); and shiksa goddess Charlotte considers converting to Judaism for Harry.
Creative casting Wallace Langham (CSI) as Carrie’s awkward faux-date Willy.
Best sound bite ”I love the stock market. A room full of screaming, sweaty men all trying to get it up.” —Samantha
Critique Carrie’s pre-Berger encounter with Willy ekes out some chuckles thanks to a feisty pigeon, but the lackluster episode functions mainly as a bridge between season 5 and major plotlines to come. Props to Miranda, though, for maintaining her dignity when Brady’s ”doody” winds up on her forehead. B
