The Drama Queen's New Career Aspirations

"I'm a doctor, Mommy!" she yells as she takes my temperature, gives me a shot, and listens to my heart.

Then she takes off her stethescope. "I'm not a doctor anymore. I'm a playgirl. I'm going to play."

There's no reason she can't be both. A lot of guys would probably dig having a playgirl doctor. You're a feminist. Don't limit her.

Andy's right. She could become the Miranda Hobbes of medicine. With better friends, one hopes.

I am Miranda Hobbes, if I were an educated, heterosexual woman and a successful litigator. Other than that, we have the same personality.

I feel so ill-prepared for this comment thread!

Andy: Cynthia Nixon is not as heterosexual as Miranda, so the difference there is blurred.

Quinn: If you're forced to watch Sex and the City, try to enjoy it from a cultural anthropology angle. Carrie is the useless heroine, Samantha is the horny one, Miranda is the neurotic professional, and as Stephen Colbert once said, Charlotte is the clean one.
