ZING ZING ZING WENT MY HEARTSTRINGS
THE MOMENT I MET HIM -- I FELL
Carrie, not in the mood, picks up the remote -- clicks. The
TV goes off. She looks around: Now what?
159AC INT. CARRIE'S APARTMENT -- LATER -- WINTER 159AC
Carrie sits at her makeshift desk as snow falls outside her
window. She looks down at the computer; motionless. CLOSE ON
SCREEN: The only thing written on it is the word: "Love."
After a beat Carrie types three dots. She thinks, then
deletes two of the dots. Her phone rings. She answers it.
159B INT. BUDDAKAN/RED ROOM -- CONTINUOUS -- WINTER 159B
Stanford sits in a festive booth with festive FRIENDS.
Happy New Year -- We're having a
fabulous time. The only thing
missing is you. Come.
That's sweet but I can't, I'm
You're not really writing are you?
No. You're not really having a
fabulous time are you?
No. Rescue me. It's very forced
Oh yes, that's just what every New
Year's Eve party needs: a visit
from the lost Bronte sister.
Well... Better a Bronte sister than
a Hilton sister.
Thanks but -- by ten PM I'll be in
bed asleep and blissfully unaware
of how fabulous this night is
supposed to be.
159C INT. CARRIE'S APARTMENT -- LATER -- WINTER 159C
Carrie is sound asleep. Her phone rings. She grabs it.
159D INT. MIRANDA'S APARTMENTS -- CONTINUOUS -- WINTER 159D
Intercut with Miranda -- sitting on her couch watching the
New Year's Eve coverage on television. Chinese take-out is on
the table in front of her.
I thought one of the perks of
having a family is you don't have
to spend New Year's Eve alone with
I'm alone with Chinese food.
I was sleeping.
Oh, shit -- I'm sorry.
That's okay. Where's Brady?
It's Steve's night.
Go back to sleep -- don't wake up.
It's okay. Are you alright?
I'm fine -- I was just getting a
little choked-up watching the
stupid New Year's Eve stuff on TV
Want me to come over?
I'm all the way downtown --
I can grab a cab --
On New Year's Eve? No way. I'm
I just wanted to talk a little. Go
back to sleep. Good night.
Miranda hangs up. Carrie lays there -- holding the phone.
She looks over at her bedside table clock: 11:12. She thinks
then -- throws back the covers and gets out of bed. START
159E EXT. CARRIE'S BULIDING -- NIGHT -- WINTER 159E
Snowing. Carrie hurries out of her front door -- a coat
thrown over her pajamas. She comes down the stairs to the
street looking for a cab. Nothing. No traffic. She starts
RUNNING up the block -- passing TWO FESTIVE COUPLES; walking.
159F INT. CHARLOTTE'S APARTMENT -- NIGHT -- WINTER 159F
Lily, in her PJ's, is marching around the den wearing a
"Happy New Year" party crown and blowing into a party favor
horn. Harry and Charlotte -- wearing New Year's Eve party
hats -- sit on the couch -- laughing. Charlotte and Harry
kiss. His hand moves sensuously down Charlotte's body and
rests on her pregnant belly.
165 INT. BEACHOUSE/DEN -- CONTINUOUS -- WINTER 165
Samantha and Smith recline on the couch. They are wearing
sexy black robes and having caviar and champagne. The Dog
sits nearby... a fire roars in the fireplace behind them.
Samantha and Smith kiss on the couch. The Dog humps a pillow
