Sex and the City Quotes


I started watching this show when I was a junior in college…many many years ago. I was single and just got back from studying abroad. I had ended a long-term relationship several months before and this show gave me some perspective and changed the way I viewed relationships. Sex wasn’t so taboo – it was almost celebrated – and friendship was highlighted as the most precious relationship you could have.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the show. If you have any favorites, please feel free to email me and I will add them to the list.
