Sex and the City : Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Which moment did you like Carrie least?

For the most part, I think people agree that Carrie had her annoying/terrible moments. For me, there are a lot of things that she does that don't sit right with me but what really blows my mind is when Carrie basically tells Aiden to get over it and accept that Big is her friend.

I truly don't see how anyone can defend this. Being friends with Big is one thing, but the way she treats Aiden like he HAS to accept that she's friends with Big... what?! She cheated on Aiden with him, broke his heart, and then she thinks Aiden's in the wrong for not wanting them to remain "friends"? It's especially frustrating because obviously Big/Carrie are never capable of being just friends.. she's essentially just being selfish and wants it all.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Can't dispute any of this. It would have been a different story if Aidan put that to her before taking her back however.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

You saw this yesterday, right? I saw it again, and it got me interested in watching SATC from the beginning to see if my assumptions are correct. I found myself wondering if the way these affluent Manhattan females seem to think is typical of all or many women. There are many situations, IIRC, where the way all of them have acted - but especially Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda - indicates a spoiled upbringing, being used to having her cake and eating it too. Extremely self-centered. I may start another thread to ask if they are indicative of most women, or if it's in the writing/portrayals.

But, yes, I found her demanding that he "must forgive" her - even though admitting he won't be able to forget it - to be beyond narcissism, into fairytale territory. It's like she's never been taught that actions have consequences. I was dumbfounded.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

One of the most awful scenes for me was when Carrie was pawing through Natasha's refrigerator, touching and looking over Natasha's things after having sex with Natasha's husband in the marital bed, on Natasha's sheets and pillows. Then Carrie showers in her bathroom, using her soap and shampoo, placing her giant wet feet on her bath mat, using her towel to dry herself, ugh! That scene was so repulsive and made me wish Carrie had plummeted down those concrete steps and smashed her nose instead of poor Natasha.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

When I saw this thread, I immediately thought of her invasive, insulting behavior when she ambushed Natasha in the restaurant, wearing the provocative dress. The familiar way Carrie spoke to Natasha, her drinking from her glass, her assumption that Natasha would hear her out after refusing to take her calls.

But your post reminds me of even worse behavior. "Giant wet feet', hahaha.

We are supposed to be on Carrie's side, her great love and passion for Big, but she really showed herself to be contemptible. Completely lacking in boundaries.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Yelling at Charlotte for not offering her money and equating spending $40k on shoes to Charlotte still wearing her wedding ring. No. Just no. Yes, Charlotte does give her the ring and enough for her down payment later and everything seems smoothed out, but this is just appalling behavior.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Funny enough, I think that scene of her berating Charlotte is the most realistic and relatable scene in the series. It doesn’t paint Carrie flattering light, but it’s a very realistic scene as to how irrational someone is gonna act in a situation when they’re knee deep in money problems.

Kiss my black ass! Toodles!

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

The amount of money she spends on shoes is ridiculous. If she were rich it would be okay but she's not

It's really annoying the way she yells at Big and throws tantrums. Way over the top

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

The increased 'fashion' consciousness - shoes, more shoes, ridiculous outfits, even more shoes - started to ruin the show, mostly because it felt so focus-grouped. Hey, we got a second/third/fourth series! Let's give the fans what they want - Carrie Shopping for Shoes!!!!

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Season 5 Carrie personality wise really grates on my nerves more than any other iteration of Carrie.

Kiss my black ass! Toodles!

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

I never liked Carrie and her obsession was Big was easiest the thing that got me annoyed the most.

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Big was gross imo. I loved Carrie though and she should have been with Aidan. He was perfect😊

Re: Which moment did you like Carrie least?

Gross how?

When she used her psychic powers and killed everyone at the high school Homecoming Dance.
