It's Charlotte's 36th Birthday but she doesn't really want to celebrate. Carrie, however, celebrates the "faux" birthday, by accompanying Miranda and Charlotte to join Samantha on her latest private jet trip with Richard to Atlantic City. Miranda wants to catch up on her sleep and read The New Yorker, and Samantha is busy keeping an eye on Richard's every move. Meanwhile, Charlotte is increasingly fearful that she's become an 'old maid'. To combat this rather frightning thought, she stuns the girls with her new racy, red lipstick look - a result of an Atlantic City style makeover. Carrie realizes people go to casinos for the same reason they go on blind dates - hoping to hit the jackpot, but wonders: If we know the house always wins, why gamble? Samantha's suspicions become unbearable as she watches the busty casino ladies show off their 'assets' to Richard - She tells Richard that she loves him but she loves herself more. She leaves behind the mega diamond ring and the pearl thong he just gave her and walks out the door. Sitting on the boardwalk and watching a happy couple taking in the sunset, Carrie realizes that she's hiding in her friends and that perhaps there are things worth gambling on.
