It's apparent that the two famous Carrie's of premium cable are significantly different from each other. While one spends her free time hunting terrorists and trying to protect the nation from major threats to human safety and national security, the other spends just as much time hunting men, writing a weekly sex column, and protecting her besties from wearing fugly shoes. But that doesn't mean our two favorite Carries don't have anything in common. I mean, they're both racked with infinite wisdom on important subject matters of life, love and friendship. But while Carrie Bradshaw tends to go on and on with long drawn out conclusions about shit so that by the end no one knows what the fuck she's even saying, Carrie Mathison tends to do this in fewer words. To help all you betches out, we've simplified the issue with the following Carrie vs. Carrie quotes.
Carrie Bradshaw: We were having one of those great first dates that you can only have when its not an actual date.
Carrie Bradshaw: When it comes to relationships, maybe we're all in glass houses, and shouldn't throw stones. Because you can never really know. Some people are settling down, some are settling and some people refuse to settle for anything less than Butterflies.
Carrie Bradshaw: I got to thinking about fate. That crazy concept that we're not really responsible for the course our lives take. That it's all predestined, written in the stars. Maybe that explains why, if you live in a city, where you can't even see the stars, your love life tends to feel a little more random. And even if our every man, every kiss, every heartache, is pre-ordered from some cosmic catalogue, can we still take a wrong step and wander off our own personal milky way? I couldn't help but wonder, can you make a mistake and miss your fate?
Carrie Bradshaw: Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.
Carrie Bradshaw: Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cites. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away.
Carrie Bradshaw: (shrieks as she picks up a pair of shoes) Oh my God! Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes! I thought these were an urban shoe myth!
Carrie Bradshaw: I got to thinking about relationships and partial lobotomies: two seemingly different ideas that might just be perfect together-like chocolate and peanut butter.
Carrie Bradshaw: When men attempt bold gestures, generally it's considered romantic. When women do it, it's often considered desperate or psychotic.
Carrie Bradshaw: (on the phone with Miranda) Tell Detective Stevens, if he sees a woman with last years pink suede Manolo Blahnik strappy sandals, bring her in for questioning immediately.
Carrie Bradshaw: The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun
Carrie Bradshaw: And then I realised something, twenty-something girls are just fabulous, until you see one with the man who broke your heart.
Carrie Bradshaw: You and I are like that red wall. It's a good idea in theory, but somehow it doesn't quite work.
Carrie Bradshaw: Oh, it's never different! It's six years of never being different! This is it! I am done! Don't call me ever again! Forget you know my number! In fact, forget you know my name! And you can drive up this street all you want - because I don't live here any more!
Carrie Bradshaw: I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.
Carrie Bradshaw: They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.
Carrie Bradshaw: There comes a point in every relationship when romance gives way to reality.
