1998 was a time devoid of a thriving meme culture in which the writers of the show were certainly not thinking that a certain choice caption would get screenshotted and circulated widely out of context.

And definitely no one could have predicted that BFF Miranda would be launching her own political campaign decades later to run for New York governor.

Yet here we are in 2018, a totally different bizarro time that could never have been predicted in the more innocent-seeming days of the late '90s.

Even though the show’s 100 percent white cast was neither delicate nor woke in the face of racial discrimination or gender issues, they did pave the way for a lot of the fashion and female openness around sexuality that we see in the world today. 

The girls also single-handedly began the cupcake trend with their Season 3 visit to Magnolia Bakery, and we have them to thank for killing the sugary cocktail formerly known as the Cosmo. 

The internet recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of Sex and the City's pilot and in its honor, here are 20 of the most relatable moments of the show that withstood the test of time.
