PARKER ON CARRIE ''When Carrie walks out her door, there's just potential everywhere.''

Ever since HBO announced last January that its flagship comedy, which debuted in 1998, would call it quits after this season, millions of ''Sex and the City'' fans have been weeping and rending their Prada pencil skirts. Here are a few tidbits about season 6 to tide you over: Samantha bags a beau in twentysomething waiter Jerry (Jason Lewis); Charlotte ponders converting to Judaism for her attorney boyfriend, Harry (Evan Handler); Miranda falls for an opposite-of-Steve guy; and Carrie gets busy, first with writer Jack and then with a legendary European artist (the role will be cast soon). Big and Aidan pop up again, and ''Sex'' exec producer Michael Patrick King teases, ''There will be a wedding or two.''

As Carrie & Co. primp for their final hurrah -- the first half of the season begins June 22; the second half kicks off in January -- we offer a sneak peek ahead and a lusty look back at what made ''Sex'' the funkiest, spunkiest comedy on TV.
