A
Anorexia — the condition Carrie accuses Miranda ”Your breasts are huge!” Hobbes’ newborn, Brady, of having after he refuses to breastfeed

B
Blahniks — The credit card-busting pumps Carrie wears to worship at the altar of Manolo

C
Convenient Theories For You Monthly — the magazine that Miranda charges Charlotte with reading after she spouts heart-numbing nuggets of bleakness such as ”You’re only allowed two great loves”

D
Dime Store Camille Paglia — What Miranda calls Samantha after she dishes out truisms on sex (i.e., ”Men give and women receive; it’s biological destiny.”)

E
Ecstasy — the drug that induces a whacked-out Samantha to proclaim to Richard (James Remar) — mid-climax — that she loves him; she later regrets saying it… sort of.

F
Fleet Week — Carrie and the girls’ favorite holiday when hunky seamen dock in New York and ”our city is made even fairer by cute, sweet American sailors looking for fun”

G
Gay Straight Man — A breed of New York men spawned by ”overexposure to fashion, exotic cuisine, musical theater, and antique furniture”

H
”Hope that F—er Doesn’t Break My Heart Again” Diamond — What Samantha names the paper-weight-worthy gem that Richard gives her to woo her back

I
”I’m not getting laid, therefore I’m getting laid off” — The reason a paranoid Carrie thinks her editor, who never calls, phoned her after she gets a bad case of writer’s block and winds up writing about French fries instead of sex

J
Jimmy Choo — Carrie’s other shoe god
