The best of Stanford Blatch: Willie Garson's most iconic moments on 'Sex and the City'

Garson, the actor who played Blatch on six seasons and in two films of 'Sex and the City,' sadly died at the age of 57 on Tuesday.

I couldn't help but wonder... what would Carrie Bradshaw have been without her gay best friend?Stanford Blatch was always sort of living in the shadow of Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte. And while he wasn't invited to their countless lunches or brunches, he was still always there for Carrie.

SEX AND THE CITY, Willie Garson, Sarah Jessica Parker, 'No Ifs, Ands, or Butts', (Season 3, aired July 9, 2000), 1998-2004HBO / Courtesy Everett CollectionStanford provided an archetype in the late '90s — that the gay character can be clumsy, awkward and doofy and still sit with the cool kids. He didn't let any of that get in the way of being ruthlessly bitchy and in the process delivering some of the best one-liners and jokes that ever graced a"Sex and the City" script. Under all that hard exterior was a softness, though. Carrie saw him for what he truly was: a good friend with a heart of gold. If she was Dorothy, he was her Lion.

Stanford and the man who played him made an indelible mark on pop culture, bringing a gay character as center as possible in one of the straightest shows ever and always holding his own. Maybe the queerest thing about him was his wit, and this above all else made him beloved by everyone. Willie Garson, the man who played him,

It had a brief comeback in the '90s, but as the millennium approaches, everyone’s leaving their options open."

Posing as"Rick9+" in a chat room, he meets"Bigtool4u" online and decides to meet the mystery man in real life at an after hours gay bar. In order to be admitted, he has to bare all in nothing but his briefs. He ends up meeting a cutie, proving there's more out there if you just face your fears.

'All That Glitters'In this episode (season four, episode 14) mostly set in a gay club, Stanford gets jealous when Carrie befriends another gay man and seemingly replaces him."Carrie, don't fall for him. He's just another pretty face," he begs at one point."He doesn't love you like I love you. I knew this woman when she took the subway and wore Candies."

He adds,"I adored you anyway."Alamy Stock Photo'Cover Girl'In season five, episode four, we first meet Marcus, a strapping dancer at Radio City Music Hall who ends up being Stanford's love interest for quite some time. Things get so hot and heavy between the two love birds, they can't keep their hands off each other and Samantha walks in on them doing a dirty deed.

'Boy, Interrupted'Episode 10 of season six is probably where we see Stanford at his most vulnerable, facing his greatest challenge: discovering Marcus once was a sex worker. As Stanford says, it wasn't the act that offended him, it was the fact that Marcus never told him. The episode culminates at a gay prom, something Stanford never got the opportunity to go to when he was a teen. But at this one, in his blue retro tux and Carrie on his arm, he learns to forgive Marcus, and they adorably slow dance into the night together.
