Carrie hears Big is in New York to get a 'routine' heart operation and fears for his life; sharing his convalescence makes them close again, but not for long. Miranda is getting on with her neighbor & boyfriend Dr. Robert Leeds, enough to take her first true day off work ever to spend in bed with him- just then Steven burst in and is so surprised by the doc's butt that he butts himself a bloody nose, which gets under control the Knicks way: with a tampon. Now Smith is back, Samantha instructs him sexy manipulations, but can't handle holding hands. Charlotte is seeing the Chinese doctor Mao, but must first learn to concentrate on the acupuncture amidst the city noise.
