Carrie: Unlike Miranda, I wasn't ready to accept that all single men were freaks. I was so optimistic that I had actually agreed to go on my first blind date in two years. P.J. was a very successful independent movie producer. His documentary on endangered seagulls had just aired to excellent reviews on PBS. So, documentary films. That must be fun.
P.J.: Well, let's be realistic. I'm only doing this docu bullshit to earn a rep. You know, I may ultimately want to parlay into the action movie arena. I want to make money. I'm not afraid to say it. OK? I love money. I'd sell toilet bowls if it'd make me a millionaire.
Carrie: What about the seagulls?
P.J.: Fuck the seagulls.
Carrie: Step right up, folks. Two vodkas and a $12 pasta buys your admission to see The Man With No Soul. Observe, if you dare, this chilling sight. Bachelor Number Two seemed promising. Just so you know, I can't see a movie without popcorn.
Man: I'm a Junior Mints kind of guy. This relationship is probably doomed. You want to lean a little closer? Maybe hear our entire conversation? Hey, here’s a better idea. Why don't you and your fucking girlfriend just sit on our laps during the movie? Then you won't miss a fucking word, dick!
Carrie: Ladies and gentlemen, stand far away from The Man With Two Faces. They say the third time's the charm. Max was a broker who made two million on bonds last year. We had a great dinner in Little Italy. Not only did Max have two million, he also appeared to have a lending library in his pants. Parents, please keep the kiddies away from the cage of The Man Who Steals Cheap Used Books for No Reason.

3. Documentary film, documentary 记录片
Documentary film is a broad category of visual expression that is based on the attempt, in one fashion or another, to "document" reality. Although "documentary film" originally referred to movies shot on film stock, it has subsequently expanded to include video and digital productions that can be either direct-to-video or made for a television series. Documentary, as it applies here, works to identify a "filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception" that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries.
4. Parlay into
Parlay 的本意是“谈判”，这里则指“成功地利用To maneuver (an asset) to great advantage”，例如：John parlayed some small investments into a large fortune. 约翰成功地把一些小投资转变为一项大资产。
5. Earn a rep
Rep 这里是 reputation 的简写。这里我们又学到一个表达法，记住“赚得名声”就可以用earn a rep 来表达。例如：All he wants to get is to earn a rep and make a lot of money.
Junior Mints are a candy currently produced by Tootsie Roll Industries. They are small rounds of mint filling inside of a dark chocolate coating, sold packaged in varying amounts from a single serving fun size to a much larger 3.5 servings for movie theaters. Junior Mints are sold in many venues, but are particularly popular in movie theatres. This is mainly because that is where they originated.
