The girls wrestle with social inequalities. When Samantha dates super-rich Harvey, she enjoys the perks she claims not to crave for, but finds his relationship with female servant Sum is not as one-sided as it seems. Charlottes date with celebrity actor Wylie Ford starts as a luxury dream, but she soon finds she's expected to become more of an abjectly servile fan then a self-respecting lover. Miranda takes Steve shopping for his wardrobe but has a taste he cannot afford and yet won't allow her to pick up the bill, even if that breaks hem up. Carrie is insecure again when Big takes her to a socialite party but never seems able to express his love, and therefore goes out with an old artistic flirt without means she find waitering there.
