Charlotte is shocked and Berger slightly embarrassed when Samantha enthusiastically explains how she enjoys role-plays with her sexy actor Jerry "Smith" Jerrod, including fake rape. Miranda is relieved when he says a man not calling her back just means not interested, as men don't send sexual double messages. When Carrie can't help herself and criticizes a futile detail in Berger's book, even though she loves it, he shuts down; Samantha cuts of Jerry when he confesses being in AA; both couples soon make up. Charlotte makes her first sabbath a grand production- her pride and nitpicking don't make Harry set a wedding date as she desperately wanted but even walk out altogether.
