Between 1998 and 2004, there are plenty of heartbreaking, sometimes comedic and always iconic scenes from Sex and the CityFor example, the “You Broke My Heart” scene between Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie and John Corbett’s Aidan or when Jack dumped Carrie with a post-it note. For Chris Noth’s Mr. Big however, his favourite scene comes from 1998 episode, “The Drought”.

Noth appeared on the Kelly Clarkson Show this week and revealed his most beloved scene is where Carrie passes wind while they’re in bed. Mortified, she buries herself under the sheets, with Big replying, “It might be worse under there.”

“I insisted on doing the sound to get it right,” Noth said, “because I’m an expert in farts.”


Noth continued to reflect on another memorable scene from the 2000 episode “Cock a Doodle Do!”. Big leans in to kiss Carrie and they both fall into the lake. According to the actor it only required one take to make the final edit.

“There were so many great moments in the series of comedy,” he added. “It was just a blast to do it.”

In February it was reported Noth would not return to the highly-anticipated reboot of Sex and the City, titled “And Just Like That”. David Eigenberg’s character (aka Miranda Hobbes’ husband) Steve Brady will not return and it is widely known Kim Cattrall’s Samantha will also be absent from the HBO Max production.

It was announced last week that Carrie’s love interest and ex-fiancé, Aidan played by the aforementioned Corbett, will make several appearances in the series.

A statement from HBO Max says, “The new Max Original series is based on the book, Sex and the City, by Candice Bushnell and the original TV series created by Darren Star. The series will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”
