To Top

Charlotte York, played to pristine perfection by Kristin Davis, was the most conservative of the characters on Sex and the City, which is a stark contrast to the other women on the show. She felt strongly about holding out for a fairytale type of relationship and living a respectable life whenever possible, and often was trying to dole out advice to help keep her wayward girls in line. Here are some of the best Charlotte quotes from Sex and the City.

1. When she had reasonable emotion to how tiring dating can be

Anyone who has spent a lot of time dating knows how tiring it can be…especially if there’s an end goal to wrap it up after finding “the one.” Charlotte had been on a husband hunt since day one, so naturally the effort got to her from time to time.

“I’ve been dating since I was fifteen! I’m exhausted! Where is he?”

2. When she turned things down like a pro

Charlotte was once propositioned for anal sex, and she ended up going into a length ramble about why she wouldn’t. The ramble can work because it freaks men out and they’re less likely to have a counterargument ready when they aren’t sure what the point of the statement is.

“I can’t, Brian. I want to, but I can’t. I mean, actually no, that’s not true. I don’t want to. Or maybe I do. I don’t know what I want. But I’m afraid if I don’t, you’ll dump me. And if I do, then I’ll be the up-the-butt girl. And I don’t want to be the up-the-butt girl, because I mean… Men don’t marry up-the-butt girl. Whoever heard of Mrs. Up-The-Butt? No, no, no. I can’t. I want children and nice bedding, and I just can’t handle this right now.”
