Sex and the City might seem like it’s just about dating and having fun, but really, it’s about true friendship – as these scenes prove.
Sex and the City never failed to deliver humorous, relatable scenes. Everyone can identify with at least one of the main characters: Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis). The women juggle their careers, relationships, and social lives in New York City. Despite these challenges, they still have time to lean on each other.
There are numerous sentimental scenes throughout the show’s six seasons, mostly between the friends. They might have their drama, but they depend on each other–as best friends are supposed to do.
10 When Miranda Proposes To Steve
There are several relationships on Sex and the City that fans support, including the romance between Miranda and Steve Brady (David Eigenberg). When they first meet, Miranda is hesitant because she’s a successful lawyer and he’s a bartender. They’re from completely different social worlds. However, the two have undeniable chemistry. They’re fun and playful.
In the show’s final season, Miranda and Steve are finally on good terms. While playfully discussing everything they don’t want in life, Steve says, “I don’t want to lose you again. Even if I screw up all the other stuff, that’s the one that matters.” Miranda doesn’t have to hesitate anymore. So, she spontaneously proposes, surprising everyone, including Steve. What’s his simple, yet heartwarming, response? “Hell yeah.”
Carrie has two significant relationships on the show: Mr. Big (Chris Noth) and Aidan Shaw (John Corbett). She loves both men, but no matter how much Carrie cares for Aidan, she can never ignore her attraction for Big. He’s like a magnet and she is constantly pulled towards him.
During the third season, she has an affair with Big while she’s dating Aidan. It’s unfair to him, who has always been loyal to her. On the day of Charlotte’s wedding, he finally learns the truth about the affair. Carrie is heartbroken about what happened. While taking pictures with her friends, Carrie realizes she doesn’t need a man in her life right now. She has three people who will never leave her, and that makes all the difference. Gazing at her friends, she reflects, “It’s hard to find people who will love you no matter what. I was lucky enough to find three of them.”
8 When Carrie Helps Miranda While She’s In Labor
In the show’s fourth season, Miranda finds out she’s pregnant with Steve’s child. Because this is an unexpected surprise, she’s scared about being a mother. Can she be a single mother? Luckily, she has supportive friends who don’t leave her side, including Carrie.
In “I Heart NY,” Miranda goes into labor and Carrie rushes to the hospital to be with her. Miranda is scared, but all she has to do is look at Carrie and she’s fine. Because of Carrie’s support, Miranda knows everything is going to be okay.
7 When Big Surprises Carrie In Paris
No matter how fans feel about Carrie and Big’s relationship, he is the best man for her. He suits her outgoing lifestyle. However, because of commitment issues, they have an on-again, off-again relationship throughout the show’s entire run.
Finally, in the sixth season, Carrie unexpectedly moves to Paris. Big is finally ready to commit to Carrie, and Miranda tells him to go to Paris and “get your girl.” Making a heartwarming romantic gesture, Big surprises her in the series finale and says she’s “the one.” It took six long years for Big to treat Carrie the way she always wanted. After returning home to New York, she asks if he wants to go upstairs to her apartment. He answers, “Abso-freaking-lutely,” recalling a line he said to her when they met in the show’s first episode. The show came full circle.
