Carrie doesn't want Holly to feel like she's being used, so she tells her that she thinks she has good decorating taste, and wants her help in choosing the right paint and decor. While shopping, Carrie is appalled at the hideous things Holly is picking out and is relieved when Holly asks if Carrie can finish shopping on her own because she has spotted an attractive man who wants her help picking out some new furnishings for his home.
