When I was in high school, my girlfriend at the time sat me down and forced me to watch season one of “Sex and the City.” After watching these few episodes with her, I decided I really liked the show and ended up watching the rest of the entire series on my own time. When I was finished, I’d become very familiar with the tropes of a standard episode and decided to write my own. It’s still one of my favourite things I’ve ever written (though I think I could have done more with the Miranda character). If you’ve never seen SATC, you might not like this.
Sex and the City Script
Title: “BIG DIES AT THE END”
By James Island
(Camera pans across Carrie’s apartment, eventually revealing CARRIE and a man in bed.)
CARRIE (VO): There comes a time in every relationship when a couple has to take a certain important step. I’m speaking, of course, of the dreaded… picking your matching tattoos.
(Carrie and the man are looking at a book entitled “LOTS OF TATTOOS THAT ARE DIFFERENT”)
GUY IN BED WITH CARRIE: (Yelling) HOW ABOUT A DINOSAUR!!!!!!
CARRIE: Dinosaurs are nice, but what about that one? It’s a shoe!
GUY: Okay, listen, Carrie. I have something really important I have to tell to you.
CARRIE (VO): The second worst fourteen words any woman can hear.
CARRIE: What’s that, Sam? You can tell me anything.
GUY: Well, I think it’s about time I told you that I AM a dinosaur. (Pulls off human mask revealing dinosaur head)
CARRIE (VO): And there were those last fourteen words.
