The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (season 2)
season of television series
The following is a list of quotes from the second season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Did the Earth Move for You?Edit
- Will: [singing to himself] I'm stuck in a basement, sittin' on a tricycle, girl gettin' on my nerves. I'm goin' outta my mind, I thought she was fine, don't know if her body is hers!
- Will: [after Kathleen insults his childhood teddy-bear] Hey, hey, HEY! Don't you be dissin' my bear!
The Mother of All BattlesEdit
- Dr. Hoover: Your daughter suffers from displaced aggression syndrome.
- Vivian: Oh, Dr. Hoover, I'm afraid I would have to give a second opinion before I could believe that.
- Mrs. Hoover: Oh, it's definitely displaced aggression syndrome.
- Dr. Hoover: Let me put it in simpler terms. This is where a child acts out the repressed hostility of an unhappy home.
- Vivian: And what is that supposed to mean?
- Mrs. Hoover: Oh, too many big words.
- Vivian: No, Miss Thing, but I got a couple small words for you.
- Philip: Vivian!
- Will: [enters] Hey, good news, people. The girls...
- Dr. Hoover: Obviously, your wife is upset. It's common with women in mid-life. I'd be happy to prescribe something.
- Philip: Dr. Hoover, the school where you got your degree? You find it on the back of a matchbook?
- Will: Please, my humble brothers, please...
- Dr. Hoover: Penn State, my brother.
- Philip: Really? Good school. I was thinking of going there if my scholarship to Princeton, Yale, Wharton, and Talladega Tech had fallen through.
- Dr. Hoover: Impressive! You must've been quite an athlete in your thinner days.
- Will: Okay, time out! Time out!
- Philip: Hey, hey, hey! Let's stick to the topic, okay?
- Dr. Hoover: Fine. Speaking as a doctor, I think your daughter oughta be heavily sedated and immediately institutionalized.
- Philip: Well, speaking as a lawyer, I can only say that your daughter suits the criminal profile to a T. Right down to the low, sloping forehead, and the wide jaw suitable for grains and small rodents!
- Dr. Hoover: I think you must have her confused with yo' mama.
- [Philip punches him, and Hoover falls on Will]
- Will: That's it, Uncle Phil! You're grounded! [to Dr. Hoover] Y'know, I'd be happy to prescribe something for that.
Will Gets a JobEdit
- Will: Yo, what's up, y'all? You know if Uncle Phil's in a good mood? I'm trying to hit him up for $50 for the homecoming.
- Carlton: Will, $50 is only gonna cover the tickets. There's still the tux, the limousine, the pre-party party, the post-party party, and, in your case, bail.
- Will: Yeah, you're right. This could cost a fortune.
- Hilary: Oh, That's okay. Daddy's got a fortune. I always find that when you ask for large sums, it helps if you take his hand look deep into his eyes, and tell him you have cramps.
- Carlton: That only worked for Hilary. When I tried it he sent me to a specialist.
- Vivian: Maybe Will did get a job.
- Philip: Oh, please, Vivian. You'd believe that boy if he told you that he was a big rap star whose album just went platinum.
- Will: [as a pirate in a restaurant] Welcome to the Briny Deep, where none of our prices are ever too steep. We got fresh fish, you can look at our tank, to get to the bathroom make a left at the plank. Follow me.
- (Will and Carlton enter the kitchen with cleaning equipment)
- Carlton: (about the PSAT) I don't believe it. You couldn't have done better than me. Somewhere, there's an Asian Will Smith and he's really ticked.
- Will: Carlton, it was one measly little percentile point, all right? But I won't hesitate to throw it in your face if you don't leave me alone.
- Carlton: Well, everyone still knows I have the superior intellect. (he sprays the kitchen window)
- Will: Than why are you using car wax on the window?! (patronizing voice) This a window. This Windex? Can you say that little man?
- Hilary: Geoffrey just looked back and gave a sad little wave.
- Will:(to Ashley) And fortunately, you're too young to know what he was waving.
- Philip: Geoffrey, after seeing your good work this past year, we have decided to increase your pay by twenty dollars per week.
- Geoffrey: (mockingly) Thank you, sir. And, with my newfound wealth, I shall be able to treat myself to a Happy Meal!
- Carlton: I'll be subjected to overcrowding, bad food, and daily threats of violence. I'll have to get a Jheri Curl and tattoo.
- Will: Carlton, They're not gonna send you to jail for cheating on a test.
- Carlton: I wasn't talking about jail, I was talking about public school!
Granny Gets BusyEdit
- Will: Hey, grandma. What do you think?
- Hattie (walking in the living room to see Carlton in a dress being sewn by Will): Six years of Oprah and this is still a shock.
- Carlton: It's a bet, Grandma.
- Hattie: Don't tell me what happens if you lose. In fact, I don't want to know what happens if you win. Oh, Hell. Let's just never mention it again.
- Philip (walking in the living room to see Carlton in a dress being sewn by Will): Son -- and I use that term loosely.
- Carlton: Dad, it's not what it looks like. Will and I are making a dress.
- Philip: That's exactly what it looks like.
Guess Who's Coming to Marry?Edit
- Bobby: Cousin Carlton, Tomorrow, can you take me to Disneyland?
- Carlton: Forget it. I will not be an accomplice to the murder of Mickey Mouse.
- Carlton: I was thinking, since Janice is of the Negroid persuasion and Frank is of the Caucasoid persuasion, we could try these sings for the wedding...
- Carlton sings a few lines from "Ebony and Ivory" by Paul McCartney then "Jungle Fever" by Stevie Wonder
- Carlton: So, Will, what did you think?
- Will: I think you were deprived of oxygen at birth.
- Will: Bobby, I like it whenever you come. They all appreciate me after you leave.
The Big Four-OhEdit
- Will: (cheering) We beat 'em, we dissed 'em, we whipped they butts good, but that was kinda stupid, y'all, we in they neighborhood. Run!
- Will: Yo! Yo! Yo! We're here to display...
- Carlton: A look at a woman who's 40 today.
- Hilary: She's smart and well-dressed, so just to give thanks...
- Ashley: This is your life, Vivian Banks.
She Ain't HeavyEdit
- Will (to Dee Dee): Would you ever wear white after Labor Day?
- Dee-Dee: If it's clean and I can button it, I'll wear anything.
- Philip [to Will about his new car] Until I see some insurance papers, you're not driving this car. In fact, what kind of idiot would sell a car without insurance?
- Jazz: I resent that. The joke's on you, Mr. Banks. You can't throw me out, 'cause I'm already outside. [Philip picks up Jazz then proceeds to throw him into the kitchen]
- Will: You've heard of the Batmobile, get a load of the Rapmobile!
(After stealing silverware they thought was theirs)
- Will: Carlton, why do I have service to eight in my drawers?
- Sonya Lamor: Hello darling...NO photographs!
- Hilary: I hope there's no papparazzi around here
- Sonya Lamor: Oh don't worry darling, they don't know I live here
- Hilary: No, it's because people mistake me for Whitney Houston.
The Butler Did ItEdit
- (Will enters the kitchen carrying two suitcases.)
- Carlton: Will, it's nice of you to help Mom and Dad with their bags.
- Will: Oh yeah, man. I mean, they treat me so good here, I do whatever I can to repay their kindness.
- Carlton: Can't wait for them to leave either, huh?
- Will: Does Barry White want seconds?
Something for NothingEdit
- Will [looking at Carlton's book cover]: "How To Beat The Odds? Sorry C, there's no way to beat it. You're odd."
- Will: Carlton, skiing is for white guys named Sven, and O.J. Simpson.
- Carlton: Oh, Will, you deprived product of the ghetto. Skiing is an exhilarating sport.
- Will: What is exhilarating about strapping two sticks to your feet, flying down a hill at 90 miles an hour, and then slamming into a tree?
- This is L.A., man. If I wanted to get my head cracked, I'd star in the next Rodney King video.
- Hilary: Forget it, Ashley, I am not getting you a stun gun for Christmas.
- Ashley: I'm not really going to use it on Cousin Bobby I just want to scare him with it.
- Hilary: Look, we haven't seen him since Aunt Janice's wedding. Maybe we remember him worse than he is.
- Will: Yeah, right, and maybe it was Barbie's idea to catch that tan in the microwave.
Hilary Gets a LifeEdit
- Will: [to Hilary] I've been busting my hump ever since you got a job.
- [Philip reads off the family's credit card bills]
- Philip: Carlton, ninety dollars for a pair of socks? That's ridiculous.
- Vivian: It certainly is. Oh Philip, that's nine dollars.
- Philip: Oh...Ashley. How could you manage to charge eighty dollars worth of trinkets on our account at the drug store?
- Vivian: That's eighty cents. Sweety, do you need to get your eyes checked?
- Philip: Don't be ridiculous Vivian.
- Vivian: This has been going on for months. If you move the TV any closer to the bed, I'll be sleeping with Jay Leno.
- Philip: Now, this looks like it says "300 dollars for shoes." What's that say?
- Vivian: 300 dollars for shoes.
- Hillary: Point being?
My Brother's KeeperEdit
- '[Will and Tyriq sitting at the table eating]
- Carlton: Will, everybody knows why you're in training. No fats, no chocolate, and no women.
- Will: Then I should probably cancel my date with that fat chocolate woman!
- Carlton: Will, you better listen to me if you want me to be your manager.
- Will: My manager? I don't even want you to be my cousin.
- Carlton: I didn't hear that.
Geoffrey Cleans UpEdit
- (Geoffrey's down on his millionaire girlfriend, and Will starts singing the blues and playing harmonica)
- Will (singing): ...My butler is black ...My butler is blue ...'Cause his honey's got green ...coming out her wazoo.
- (Carlton helps his father to try on wigs.)
- Carlton: What do you think of this one, Dad?
- Philip: I look like Little Richard, Attorney at Law.
- Geoffrey: Dinner is served. (sees Philip) A-whop-bop-aloobop-a-wop-bam-boom!
- (Geoffrey sneezes)
- Vivian: Geoffrey, it sounds like you're getting a cold.
- Geoffrey (speaking with nose stuffed up): Not at all, madam. It was barely a stipple. There you go, Master William.
- Will: Thanks a lot, G. It looks great.
- (Geoffrey sneezes in Will's cereal)
- Will: Yo, Carlton. Breakfast!
- Will: Will Smith, tonsils.
- Max: Max Jakey... everything else. Sweaty palms, kid? First-timer, huh?
- Will: Man, you trippin'. I was 15 when I first... You mean surgery.
- Dr. Baylor: [his glasses on his head] I've gotta find those glasses.
- Will: [prays] God, please don't let me leave here with breasts.
Eyes on the PrizeEdit
- Jazz: (to Will, about Tyriq) What's he doing here?
- Tyriq: (to Will, about Jazz) No, what's he doing here?
- Will: Now, y'all not still mad about that watch thing.
- Tyriq: He sold me a fake Rolex.
- Jazz: He paid with a fake $20.
- Will: [to Tyriq] Now, first of all. You should have known it was fake when you saw that the warranty was only for two hours. [to Jazz] And you should have known the Jackson on the $20 ain't Jermaine.
- Jazz: They all look the same to me.
- Bob Eubanks: What is the capital of Ohio?
- (Tyriq buzzes in)
- Eubanks: Tyriq?
- Tyriq: That would be the capital "O", Bob.
Those Were the DaysEdit
- Vivian: Marge, when you told Will that we chained ourselves together at sit-ins, you're only giving him the romantic part of the struggle. Girlfriend, you are leaving out everything that went before it: the leaflets, the petitions, the years of trying to work through the system.
- Marge: The system doesn't work. You have to blow the door down. Looks to me like you forgot that.
- Philip: You talk as if I wasn't there with you in Birmingham facing dogs and firehoses. This is me, Olufemi, the same Olufemi that was with you the night Harlem went up in flames, but now I have a family and I choose not to fight in the streets. I have an office to fight from and I have fought and won cases for fair housing, affirmative action, health care and I am not ashamed to write a big fat check for something I believe in and that doesn't make me any less committed than you, so don't you dare look down your damn nose at me, Adebola.
- Philip (to Marge): Remember Woodstock?
- Marge: Yes.
- Philip: Twenty of us tried to squeeze into that tent. Vivian and I jumped into that lake naked.
- Vivian: I wasn't at Woodstock.
Vying for AttentionEdit
- Vivian (to Geoffrey): So, how's the chicken holding up?
- Geoffrey: I'm afraid it's drier than happy hour at the Betty Ford Center, madam.
- Will: I know my Ma. She's just trying to get to her retirement plan and her rocking chair.
- Carlton: Is that why she's moonwalking up the driveway?
The Aunt Who Came to DinnerEdit
Helen: Lester, Don't make me get Ethnic on you!
Helen: You know how they say men are animals in bed?
Vivian: [*smirks*] Yes?
Helen: Well I don't.
Be My Baby TonightEdit
- Geoffrey (to Will): Aren't you dressed a little early for your date?
- Will: I ain't going on a date. I'm going on a phone call.
- Geoffrey: That's what I call safe sex.
- Ashley: I know where babies come from. I took sex education.
- Phil: I thought you took band.
Strip-Tease for TwoEdit
- (at the Gingham Turtle restaurant, where Carlton is performing a striptease)
- Woman: Take it off!
- Vivian: Put it on! Carlton Banks, you put your clothes on this minute!
- Carlton: Mommy?!
- (he covers his chest with his hands)
- Philip: I wanna know what excuse you two have for pulling such a stupid stunt.
- Carlton: We needed the money.
- Philip: For what? And I want the truth.
- Will: All right. It's like this Uncle Phil. See, Carlton got this inside tip on a stock.
- Philip: Federal offense. Go on.
- Will: Then we pawned Aunt Viv's bracelet to get the money for the stock.
- Philip: Grand Larceny. Impressive.
- Will: Then we lost the money, so we had to strip to get the bracelet back.
- Philip: That would be indecent exposure. Is there more?
- Carlton: I'm afraid so dad. We never got the clasp fixed on mom's bracelet.
- (all three start laughing)
- Philip: You never got...I don't know what to say. What can I do? What do you boys think I should do?
- Will: I don't know...reward us for our honesty? (they laugh again) Hey, it worked for the Beave!
- Philip: "The beave"!
- [they all laugh inaudiably; Philip suddenly stops]
- Philip: [loudly] DO I LOOK LIKE A WHITE GUY NAMED WARD?!!
