The 10 Biggest Samantha Jones Quotes From ‘SATC:’ Racy But Reflective

Samantha Jones boasts some quotes to live by in ‘Sex and the City.’ Here are our favorites.

Samantha Jones — with a fast tongue, an admirable air of independence, and a sexually liberated mentality — quickly became a beloved staple of Sex and the City. She brought much of the “sex” that the title so clearly alludes to. She was confident and unafraid to rock a dress with a slit cut all the way down to there or a bit of bedazzled glamour that ageist members of proper society would deem inappropriate. She would strut down a red carpet with shoulders back in five-inch heels — ready to fireplace a quippy remark at anyone who dared to scoff. Her absence in And Just Like That… leaves a gaping black hole where saucy escapades and jaw-dropping one-liners was once. While the show has added some recent faces — like Seema, Nya, and Lisa — nobody can step into Samantha’s stilettos and deliver that very same sashay she employed to sink into our hearts. 

Though Samantha will not be in And Just Like That — sans a really transient appearance within the season 2 finale — we don’t need a reason to reminisce about her biggest moments. So, let’s turn back the clock to the late ‘90s and early 2000s and highlight Samantha’s most memorable lines. 

“I really like you, but I really like me more.”

Samantha had several romantic partners — and memorable one-night thrills — throughout Sex and the City. However, she never sacrificed her identity for a person. She never put her happiness (or her profession) behind another person’s. She was content to be alone and self-realized somewhat than coupled, but because the shell of a lady she might be. She loved herself essentially the most, and this can be a lesson a lot of us could learn from.

“I’m the try-sexual, honey. I’ll try anything once.”

This could also be certainly one of Samantha’s most-quoted lines, because it perfectly captures her sexually adventurous spirit. Samantha was never timid within the bedroom, nor was she timid went it got here to explaining her encounters in vivid, photographic detail. She didn’t subscribe to the sexist and misogynistic idea that ladies ought to be “vanilla” and/or sexually hesitant, as to suggest purity and respectability. She knew that was a load of crap, and her sex life only furthered her glorious feminist characterization. 

“Men cheat for a similar reason that dogs lick their balls… because they’ll.”

Though this quote isn’t exactly male-friendly — because it likens the male member of our species to the canine — it’s not totally unfounded. Men are statistically more prone to cheat than women. While there could also be multiple reasons at play, the very fact stays that some people will cheat in the event that they know they are going to get away with it — whatever the status of their marriage. Samantha never shied away from a troublesome pill to swallow. In short, the ignorance is bliss approach and Samantha Jones don’t coexist. 

“A man gets offended in a gathering, he’s a pistol. A girl, she’s emotional.”

Samantha was a robust businesswoman; thus, she faced the rampant sexist and patriarchal standards that outline the company world one too again and again in Sex and the City. She understood the standards were different for her. She understood that emotionality within the office is passion and determination concerning men, but hormonal and unpredictable concerning women. And, as Samantha does, she called it out. 

“I won’t be judged by you or society. I’ll wear whatever I need and blow whomever I need so long as I can breathe and kneel.”

This quote surfaces in a conversation between Carrie and Samantha a number of scenes after Carrie walks in on Samantha giving a blowjob to a delivery guy — and allows an expression of judgment to crawl across her face. Samantha’s statement is powerful and succinct. It could also be racy, but that doesn’t mean it’s not pointed. She knows that she’s going to come up against people whose standards for behavior are rooted in antiquated notions that should be put to rest, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to take care of it or allow such ideas to flourish uncontested. 

“I’m fifty-f*cking-two and I’ll rock this dress.”

As Samantha’s choosing a dress for a red carpet premiere, an innocent saleswoman asks her, “Is that perhaps a bit of young?” And well, in Samantha fashion, she puts her in her place. There is not any age limit on fashion. Wear what you would like. You have one life to live, and you may as well live it in a designer gown that makes people stare and swoon. Eat your hearts out 20-somethings; Samantha goes to indicate you up. 

“F*ck me badly once, shame on you. F*ck me badly twice, shame on me.”

A more risque tackle “Fool me once…” that is Samantha at her Samantha-est. She has no time in life for bad sex. Once: How was she presupposed to know? Twice: How did she delude herself into considering round two could be any higher than round one?! We only have so many pleasures in a life crammed with woes, so the sex higher be mindblowing. 

“I don’t imagine within the Republican party or the Democratic party. I just imagine in parties.”

While this stance in today’s ultra-divided political climate may sound uninformed or unaware, it’s a complete Samantha line that gets her out of a political conversation she doesn’t wish to have and returns the discussion to levity. It’s not that she doesn’t have an opinion or that she isn’t knowledgeable. Rather, she understands the tried-and-true adage of “time and place” and doesn’t care to get wrapped up in such heated discourse when she’s attempting to have time. 

“Oh, please! There’s at all times a contest with an ex, it’s called who will die miserable.” 

Exes. We all have ‘em. We should still have a bit of love for ‘em. We should still hold a bit of resentment. And at the tip of the day, all of us wish to be the one who comes out on top…first. Who finds recent love. Who succeeds. There’s a contest we will’t deny between split partners. There’s a race. The finish line: whoever finds happiness first within the absence of the opposite. Once again, Samantha says it prefer it is. 

“I’m not the variety of woman who sits home all day waiting for a person.” 

Samantha prepares handmade Sushi for her movie star boyfriend, Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis), and lays all of it across her naked body to surprise him when he comes home. The problem: he shows up three hours late, she’s eaten some sushi, she’s placed on clothes, and he or she’s pissed. She says this line — each admonishing Jason and reminding herself of the lady she is. She will not be a housewife who prepares food while hubby slaves on the office…and he or she never will probably be. No man will ever turn her into a lady she doesn’t yearn to be.
