Today is the 15th anniversary of the premiere of Sex and the City, and even after all those years, two movies, and countless reruns, we're still just as in love with the HBO series. To commemorate the day, let's look back at one of the most momentous moments in the series premiere (and, well, series): when Carrie meets Big. Before Carrie romanced the likes of Bradley Cooper and John Slattery, there was Big. Actually, Big's been there before, after, and sometimes during Carrie's other relationships, proving that the two — now married in the movies — just can't stay away from each other. So, to take you waaay back, watch the first scene of their introduction, embarrassing bag spill and all. Epic.
