This week we are taking a slice from Mystic Pizza… kind of. Except there is no pizza…or teenaged Matt Damons.
The episode opens with Carrie at her internship, working with the Dragon Lady, whose given name, apparently is Barbara. I thought that The Dragon Lady was an attorney, but it sounds as if she is more of a secretary or personal assistant. In which case, she is WAY too uptight. She needs to let that hair down, literally and figuratively- was Working Girl released yet?
As Carrie files more boring paperwork, suddently a cute guy appears. He is here to see The Dragon Lady (hereafter referred to as TDL), as she has typed up his college applications. His name is George Silver.
Need to take a 90210 aside here. George Silver- shades of DAVID Silver!?!?! 90210 rip-off, seriously, they couldn’t think of another Jewish last name? I’m not slamming Jewish people – at all, their food is, seriously, delicious, but there are a million other Jewish names. Come on writers… throw me a bone.
Ok, so back to George Silver- his Dad is the one who got Carrie the internship, and his dad, Harlan, took Carrie’s Dad out clubbing a few episodes ago. George tells Carrie that he knows her- and frankly, he’s offended she doesn’t remember him. He was at her HOUSE!!! He was 7, she was 4 and she was naked and in his paddling pool. Oh sorry, I was having a Bridget Jones / Mark Darcy moment. He was 7, she was 4 and George gave Carrie poison ivy. Charming.
George, promptly, invites Carrie to his mother’s hip and swanky party in NYC. Carrie turns him down.
We cut to Carrie sitting with the girls, Mags, Walt and Mouse, at the diner. She tells them about George and about the party invitation she turned down. The girls want to know if he’s ugly or dumb? Walt wants to know if he had flabby abs and wears a banana hammock? What?? Oh wait, he’s not there. Carrie explains George is a distraction and she is too busy. The girls think George is a distraction because Carrie is still hung up on Sebastian. Carrie admits they are right. Seeing him on Halloween gave her hope.
Mags tells Carrie that she needs to make herself unavailable to Sebastian- after all what’s what she did with Walt. (she did? I have zero memory of her making herself unavailable to him… I mean, she was jamming that cop, but Walt didn’t know that specifically, right? He just suspected she was with someone else. OMG, why am I even having this argument with myself??!? Mags is dating a, CLEARLY, gay dude and has no clue.) And look at Mags and Walt now … they are like a couple of happy jack rabbits.
