Episode Seven: the chicken dance

They are doing a new thing with the interviews. Carrie will interview random people saying random things, then the last interview in the segment will be a character from the show, who will answer the question as it pertains to the plot device that got her to ask the question in the first place. Example: a girl named Madeline gets engaged after knowing a guy three weeks, which leads Carrie to ask the question: is there such a thing as love at first sight, and some random guy on the street says something about Carmen Elektra and Dennis Rodman (so, so dated), then Madeline starts talking about what it was like for her. I believe they are trying to make the interviews work in the context of the show before phasing them out completely.

Samantha accidentally sleeps with a guy she forgot she slept with about 15 years prior, and this is an endless source of humor for me. The guy is alternately referred to as a “deja fuck,” a “reunion,” and a “rerun.” I don’t know why this is so funny to me, but it is. Probably because Samantha is drunk for most of this episode as well.

She and Miranda have a nice comic chemistry in this one, such as when Samantha says she’ll be at the bar and Miranda says “say hello to my date.” Then Carrie asks Miranda what she gave the happy couple and she dead pans “the dancing frogs,” (Madeline was Miranda’s interior designer and bought the frogs for Miranda’s house before stealing Miranda’s man) and Samantha does that whole floozy laugh.
