Wishing a Happy Birthday to Cynthia Nixon – let’s enjoy some Miranda moments from ‘Sex And The City’
Cynthia Nixon, the two-time Emmy winner, Tony winner and even Grammy winner (get her an Oscar and she’s an EGOT!) turns 51 today.
I loved her even before she was a lesbian because her character of Miranda on Sex and the City had most of the really smart and funny lines.
When her baby would not stop crying: “No, he’s not sick. He’s not hungry, he’s not teething, he just wants to scream. I’m doing everything I can but I can’t please him. If he was 35 this is when we would break up.”
On getting unexpectedly pregnant: “He has one ball, and I have a lazy ovary! In what twisted world does that create a baby? It’s like the Special Olympics of conception.”
Miranda: (to Carrie’s answering machine) Your good friend Miranda has just taken a piece of cake out of the garbage and eaten it. You will probably need this information when you check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic.
Samantha: Are you in pain? I’m in pain just looking at you.
Miranda: I’m a 34-year-old woman with braces and I’m on a liquid diet. Pain doesn’t begin to cover it.
