Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this episode, three of our plucky heroines have romantic run-ins with "modelizers" -- a nickname Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) coined for men who only date fashion models. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) is going out with Nick (Josh Pais), but doesn't understand his lack of enthusiasm until she discovers his obsession with models. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) also finds herself dating a "modelizer," Barkley (Gabriel Macht), and while she's able to break through his resistance, she also discovers another of his quirks -- recording his sexual conquests on videotape. Carrie decides to do some research of her own on the subject by dating a male model named Derek (Andre Boccaletti), though she still has a more than passing interest in Mr. Big (Chris Noth).
