After a long time, I caught both Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives on the idiot box on Sunday night. You have to give it to them for coming up with some really interesting episodes! From SATC, Carrie (who had given up her life in NY to be with Alexandr in Paris) realises that she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places.
Carrie: “Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous. “
Carrie: “I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love. And I don’t think that love is here in this expensive suite in this lovely hotel in Paris.”
Big: It took me a really long time to get here, but I’m here. Carrie, you’re the one.
Now that’s a line that would melt any woman’s heart and I must confess I shed a tear or two myself, watching Carrie and Big find each other again on the streets of Paris… Sigh. Did I call it the idiot box? I have to take that back 🙂
