Sex And The City: Season 4 Episode 2 "The Real Me"

"When real people fall down in life, they get right back up and keep walking."

~Carrie Bradshaw
(Sarah Jessica Parker)
Sex And The City
Season 2 Episode 4 The Real Me

The other day, Alan and I, were discussing what our favorite TV moments have been. As you can probably imagine, we have different ideas on what makes a perfect TV moment. His are mostly "guy" moments, and I tend to identify with the ladies. It all works out, and gives us plenty of terrific lines, situations, and scenarios to debate. One that we both really liked came from, Sex And The City! Season 4 Episode 2 titled, "The Real Me." In this episode, Carrie is asked to be in a fashion show that is a mixture of professional models, and real people, like Carrie. At first she believes she will be wearing a very elegant blue sequined dress, but at the last minute it is swapped out for a pair of flesh toned jeweled underwear and a blue satin coat. An already nervous Carrie now has just a couple minutes to pull herself together, so she can hit the runway alongside the likes of Heidi Klum. And HIT THE RUNWAY SHE DOES, after one of her very high heels breaks, and she falls to the floor of the catwalk, becoming, "fashion roadkill."

 Humiliating, but survivable, because she didn't just give up and go away, she got back up and finished her walk. While this episode plays out four different perspectives of what each of the ladies thinks of themselves individually, Carrie is the one who drives the point home that no matter what, at the end of the day, when a real human falls down in life, they will get back up, and keep moving. I love the message of the episode. I love that each lady, when faced with a fear of some sort, not only did their world's not end, but they discovered something new about themselves, and grew as a person for having stared down the fear and met a personal challenge or goal. Carrie's message was the kind of human truth that male or female could identify with. I believe, hands down, this was the best episode of the series. I never get tired of it's message. And it is definitely in my Top Ten favorite TV moments of all time!

Well, that's my favorite moment from Sex And The City. 
Now it's your turn, did you have a favorite moment,
 scene or full episode of the show?
How about a different show?
Do you have a favorite TV moment that stands out for you?

Sometime I will have to share about
 the main reason I watched the show...

 There are some rumors that HBO might be doing a reboot of the series, which I think would be amazing! I would love to see the ladies dealing with the kind of issues ladies our age deal with. Ageism, menopause, wage equality, health issues. Women in our demographic have been really overlooked, it's time to demonstrate how relevant we are! Sex And The City is just the type of iconic show that can do just that! With style!
