    A Definitive Ranking Of Carrie's "Sex And The City" Questions, From Most Banal To Most Profound

    Yes, that's right. All 92 of them.

    92. The thing about Carrie is that she spends an extraordinary amount of time in a permanent state of wonder.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 14.

    91. Which means that often her questions make no sense.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 12.

    90. As in, they are literally devoid of meaning.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 4.

    89. It's not even obvious whether she understands what she asks.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 7.

    88. Sometimes she invents words.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 15.

    87. Sometimes she wonders whether it's OK to date someone from an different background to her own. Earnestly.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 10.

    86. And sometimes she's sexist.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 1.

    85. Scrap that. Often she's sexist.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 3.

    84. When she's down, she thinks everyone is out to get her. Including just general women who are young.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 17.

    83. And general women who are married.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 3.

    82. And despite writing a dating column, she can't grasp the difference between being an "employee" and being a "girlfriend".

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 5.

    81. One time, seeing some models (people who are paid to look pretty) made her (someone who is not paid to look pretty) feel insecure.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 2.

    80. And then there was that time she thought relationships might have just come to a natural end.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 11.

    79. And then once she asked whether she should just settle and the whole world was like, "NO CARRIE NO."

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 9.

    78. In fact, loads of her questions can be answered in three words. Here goes: YES (BUT DON'T).

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 9.

    77. NO, OBVIOUSLY NOT.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 7.

    76. SNOGGING AND MORE.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 6.

    75. DON'T SLUT-SHAME YOURSELF.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 6.

    74. BUT, BUT, BABIES?

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 4.

    73. DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 11.

    72. OF COURSE NOT.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 10.

    71. UM, YES CLEARLY.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 12.

    70. FOE FOE FOE.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 16.

    69. NO NO NO.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 17.

    68. TAKE A BREAK.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 4.

    67. AW, HOPEFULLY BOTH.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 16.

    66. Then sometimes she asks questions that are obviously silly but, let's face it, everyone asks.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 8.

    65. And sometimes they're so specific that you're like, "OMG CARRIE JUST TELL US WHAT YOU REALLY THINK."

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 6.

    64. Sometimes she just moans.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 11.

    63. And moans.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 12.

    62. And moans.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 3.

    61. And sometimes she puns. That's bad.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 4.

    60. But then she just gets scared of life and that's kind of sweet.

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 10.

    59. We've all been there, Carrie.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 5.

    58. Just looking for answers.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 5.

    57. Even when we kind of know there aren't any.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 1.

    56. Sometimes Carrie's questions are so raw.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 16.

    55. And so real.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 14.

    54. And so vulnerable.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 14.

    53. That we can all just relate to them.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 1.

    52. That's pretty much why Sex and the City is so great.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 15.

    51. Because no one has all the answers.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 3.

    50. And Carrie doesn't pretend to.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 14.

    49. She just asks.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 8.

    48. That's why, even though she's prone to sweeping generalisations...

    HBO

    Season 1, Episode 1.

    47. ... specifically gender-based generalisations...

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 5.

    46. ... we can all feel her pain.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 13.

    45. So when Big screws her over...

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 16.

    44. ... again...

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 1.

    43. ... and again...

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 10.

    42. ... and again...

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 13.

    41. ... we're happy to listen.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 8.

    40. One time, she didn't finish her question, but we could tell it was going to be a good one.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 8.

    39. She gets that relationships aren't just about two people.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 15.

    38. And that Daddy issues are a very real thing.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 17.

    37. She basically nails describing that part of a relationship where everything changes.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 9.

    36. (OK, fine, she's a bit repetitive).

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 8.

    35. But she's also smart.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 12.

    34. And aware.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 15.

    33. And iconoclastic.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 4.

    32. And sure, she makes obvious mistakes.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 17.

    31. But not being perfect makes her a fantastic anti-hero.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 18.

    30. Besides, she isn't afraid to accept the blame.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 18.

    29. Everyone has asked this at some point.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 1.

    28. Also this.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 6.

    27. And this.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 2.

    26. And obviously this.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 13.

    25. And no one knows the answer to this.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 9.

    24. Yes, she can be shallow.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 4.

    23. Yes, she over thinks things.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 5.

    22. And yes, loads of things she asks are absolute clichés.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 6.

    21. But she poses important questions about faith.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 2.

    20. And double standards.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 2.

    19. And hindsight.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 7.

    18. And self-awareness.

    HBO

    Season 5, Episode 6.

    17. OK THIS IS A VERY GOOD QUESTION.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 13.

    16. THAT'S WHY SHE ASKS IT SO OFTEN.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 5.

    15. SO SO OFTEN.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 3.

    14. This is very astute.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 8.

    13. This is now just basically philosophy.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 3.

    12. Philosophy of love.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 12.

    11. Philosophy of hearts.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 11.

    10. Philosophy of forgiveness.

    HBO

    Season 4, Episode 7.

    9. Philosophy of sex.

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 2.

    8. (And again).

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 11.

    7. Once she got very meta.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 18.

    6. This is basically where all great thinkers start, no?

    HBO

    Season 3, Episode 10.

    5. And this is age old.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 18.

    4. EUGHHH YOU'RE BREAKING MY HEART, CARRIE.

    HBO

    Season 6, Episode 2.

    3. I hear you.

    HBO

    Season 2, Episode 7.

    2. Loud and clear.
