Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: Samantha flips out when Richard rebuffs her advances, accusing him of wanting to break up and of seeing someone else. He calmly and reasonably points out that he's in the middle of work and also answers the questions she posed to him during her rant--"Where were you this afternoon?", etc. It seems like a great moment for her to learn not to be jealous and suspicious, except it turns out that she didn't believe a word he said and upon following him, learns that he IS cheating on her, thus making her supposed overreaction completely justified.
** All of the girls got moments like this. Carrie realizes she needs to stop being a spendthrift. . . Charlotte gives her the money for a down payment and she goes right back to the spending habits that got her into this mess, etc.

*** Indeed, there were a lot of [[UnfortunateImplications]] and evidence of [[ValuesDissonance]] that Samantha dating a Black man was considered so controversial, especially given all the other kinky and unorthodox things she has done.

* FoodSlap: Samantha Jones dresses in her finest and heads off to meet Richard, who's sitting at a table in very nice restaurant, waiting for her. As Samantha approaches him, he smiles and tells her how great she looks. She gives him a big smile back, tosses a drink in his face, turns on a dime, and triumphantly walks away.

to:

* FoodSlap: In the first season, having been ghosted by a guy she genuinely liked and was having a great time with, Samantha Jones dresses is seen throwing a drink in her finest and his face during the closing sequence. Several years later, she heads off to meet Richard, who's sitting at a table in very nice restaurant, waiting for her. As Samantha approaches him, he smiles and tells her how great she looks. She gives him a big smile back, tosses a drink in his face, turns on a dime, and triumphantly walks away.



** Samantha has knowingly slept with married men several times, yet is outraged whenever SHE is cheated on.
** Miranda thinks there's something wrong with a 30-something guy who's never been married, but champions women in the same position "We're just choosy".



** Miranda has her moments too--she can be quite horrible to some of her boyfriends. In particular, she dumps Skipper, then decides she wants him back the second that she sees that he's happy with someone else. After they sleep together, she decides this is the perfect time to tell him she doesn't want to be monogamous. When he rightfully gets angry and tells her off, declaring that he's sick of her jerking him around, she reacts with astonishment and tells him he's overreacting. She blasted Carrie for constantly letting Big do this to her, yet is completely oblivious to the fact that she's done it to someone else.

** Miranda has her moments too--she can be quite horrible to some of her boyfriends. In particular, she dumps Skipper, treats Skipper like crap before finally dumping him, then decides she wants him back the second that she sees that he's happy with someone else. After they sleep together, she decides this is the perfect time to tell him she doesn't want to be monogamous. When he rightfully gets angry and tells her off, declaring that he's sick of her jerking him around, she reacts with astonishment and tells him he's overreacting. She blasted Carrie for constantly letting Big do this to her, yet is completely oblivious to the fact that she's done it to someone else.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: Occasionally, the girls' personalities would overlap. Charlotte had a few "Samantha" moments, Samantha had a few "Charlotte" moments, as did Miranda, etc.


Added DiffLines:

* SlutShaming: To all the women at various times. In particular in the aptly titled "Are We Sluts?", when Samantha's promiscuity catches up to her--her latest fling let's a burglar into her apartment building, prompting one of her neighbors to irritably snap, "Every time I see you in this elevator, you're with a different man." Samantha cringes upon realizing that she's right and actually seems to have a HeelRealization about her behavior. When complaining to Carrie, she compares the treatment she's receiving to "being chased with Main/TorchesAndPitchforks like I'm [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} Fuckenstein]]!" It gets so bad that she has to move out.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: After Miranda contracts chlamydia, she tells Steve he needs to be tested, but assures him, "men are just carriers". This is completely false. Men can have chlamydia--or any STD--just as easily as a woman.

Added DiffLines:

** Skipper finally blasts Miranda for jerking him around --acting annoyed with him throughout their whole relationship and finally dumping him, deciding she wants him back the minute she sees him with someone else, then telling him that she doesn't want to be monogamous right after they've had sex.

* RacistGrandma: Bunny's (Trey's mother) response to Charlotte's plans to adopt a Mandarin baby?
--> "The [=McDougal=] name will be carried on by ''sons of your own''. ''Not'' daughters of the South Pacific."



** Charlotte rushes into a FourthDateMariage with Trey, and it falls apart just as quickly. She then rushes into having a baby just after they reconcile and the resulting strain puts the final nail in the coffin of their relationship. Plus, having quit her job before she even got pregnant, not only can she not get it back after the divorce, she's overqualified For everything else.
