Two of TV's most famous Carries — Bradshaw and Mathison — could not be more different. The Sex and the City fashionista and Homeland heroine usually have different things on their minds — for Carrie Bradshaw, it's shoes, and for Carrie Mathison, it's preventing international terrorism. However, they're not always so different, especially when it comes to their musings on men and love and the crappiness that comes with breakups.

Remember how Sex and the City went from being a bubbly girl-on-the-town all jazzed up by her big dreams and bigger libido to a moth-eaten drag queen slumped over the piano in a hooker bar in Reno? As the seasons progressed and the four leading ladies had less weird sex, less legitimate angst, and more outrageously priced clothing, the show lost its edge — and its devoted audience (hey, Lena Dunham, are you listening?). By the time series ended in 2004 after six seasons, and the movies were wheeled out years later, the plot, the characters, and the fun were as watered down as a blue margarita at an airport Chili’s. There are rumors of another Golden Girls — oops — Sex and the City reunion, but for now, we’ll just enjoy laughing with a new Twitter account @SATC3quel instead of at a new movie itself.
MIRANDA: That robot I replaced Magda with is so *lazy.* I can't do it all on my own! SAMANTHA: Oh, honey. What you need is a MAN-droid.

[CARRIE V.O.]: Twitter recognized me -- but to Big, I was a stranger. What does it mean when a website verifies you, but love terrifies you?

With the return of The Carrie Diaries coming this Fall, (and brand new pictures of young Samantha out!) we've got Sex and the City on our minds. The TV series and subsequent films are rife with puns and hilarious zingers, which continue to live on in memory. Here are a few of our favorite quotes from the foursome; what are yours?
- "I'm thinking the upsetting thing isn't that you proposed, it's that you proposed to a guy that says 'all righty.'"— Carrie
- "Good speech though." — Anthony
- "I have an addiction, sir!" — Carrie
If there's one woman who has inspired more than her fair share of hair envy, it's Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. Her wild, curly tendrils have been mimicked time and time again, making her mane one of the most iconic ones out there.

Ready to feel old? Today is the 15th anniversary of the premiere of Sex and the City, when we first met the Manolo-wearing Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte. But the gang's glam fashion was only one aspect of the show's claim to fame. It was really the relationships — the good, the bad, and the frightening — that had has hooked. And whether you were Team Big or Team Aidan, there was at least a handful of the quartet's love interests that ring a bell for us all. I've rounded up 20 types of former flames from the TV show that we can all relate to from our dating past. Whether it's a mama's boy, a fetish-obsessed fella, or a wedding hookup, you're sure to see a guy you've dated in this group.
Grab a cosmo and make your way to the nearest Manolo Blahnik store — it's time to celebrate Sex and the City's 15th birthday! We know, it's hard to believe that it has been that long since we first met Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte. We have an update on the actresses who portrayed these iconic characters, which shows that, in some ways, life truly does imitate art.
Sex and the City premiered on this day, 15 years ago — and while the fashion trends and technological references may not hold up (how did Carrie Bradshaw not have a cell phone until, like, season six?), we can always count on the love and dating advice doled out by the fab four. Even though Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte don't always get it right when it came to love, their relationship battle scars have definitely taught them (and us) plenty over the years. So we couldn't help but wonder: what are the show's most honest, valid pearls of wisdom? In celebration of the 15th anniversary of one of our most beloved TV shows, we've rounded up 15 Sex and the City quotes about love that stand the test of time.
Today marks the 15th anniversary of Sex and the City — one of the most influential, inspiring, and fashion-forward TV shows to ever grace the small screen. Though Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda have proved their fashion prowess with statement-making ensembles and lust-worthy shoes, it's Ms. Carrie Bradshaw that reigns as queen in our sartorial hearts. From frothy ballet skirts to nameplate necklaces to an array of unconventional masterpieces, Carrie's envelope-pushing ensembles are not only iconic to those who have watched the show since day one, but they've inspired a cult following that spans generations.
After donning countless avant-garde fashions for over a decade, it's no wonder Sarah Jessica Parker's fearless fashion realness has become one in the same. So in honor of the woman whose character has induced major sartorial envy in almost everyone on the planet, we are taking a look back at SJP's 135 most spectacular red carpet moments.
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.
