“We Stopped Celebrating Life Choices and Started Qualifying them…” -Carrie
The SATC episode in question, a Woman’s Right to Shoes, is a favorite episode for us both. It is episode 9 of season 6, and aired on August 17th, 2003. How is it that an episode from 2003 is still just as relevant as ever?!?
Our favorite quotes from the episode:
“If you had a party and told her to leave the baby outside the hall, and the baby was missing at the end of the night, there would be payback.”
“I’m so sick of these people with their children. LOL” Double cappuccino not double strollers.
“Is it bad that my life is filled with shoes and not children?”
“She shoe shamed me!” (Carrie) “She’s a fucking bitch!” (Miranda)
“Is it bad that I have a closet full of shoes instead of children?
“We stopped celebrating life choices and started qualifying them.”
“If you are single after graduation, there isn’t a single occasion where people celebrate you”
“I am Santa…I have bought” and went on to talk about how much she’s spent celebrating her friends life choices (marriage, engagements, baby showers, etc)
“And if I don’t ever get married, or have a baby…what?!?! I get bupkis?”
“You must have a lot of time on your hands”
“Come on Carrie, that’s insane.” “Well, that’s what they cost.” “ I’m sorry, I just think that’s crazy to spend that much on shoes.”
“That’s before I had a real life”

You Have A Real Life No Matter What Your Situation Looks Like
