I couldn't help but wonder, who hasn't been on SATC?More
Jack (Bradley Cooper) was bad news from the beginning. As Carrie says in the episode, "They Shoot Single People, Don't They?" Jack was everything she needed at 2 a.m. on a Tuesday at a gay bar: single, straight, smoker. It could've been the greasy hair, the tempting smoking habit (she was trying really hard to quit), or the fact that Jack later discovered Carrie's "Single & Fabulous?" New York Magazine cover story — the two never did anything more than make out in a crowded bar and briefly, in his convertible.
In "The Perfect Present," Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda head to a purse party thrown by the recently dumped Vanessa, played by the queen of the bend-and-snap. "Isn't life funny? Because of that fucker, I've discovered, I'm Fendi!" she says in the episode, moments before walking into Samantha and Smith (in his pre-Gus Van Sant days) boning against several glass racks.
