Episode Quotes

Will Smith: What did I do?
Philip Banks: What did you do? You destroyed my image!
Will Smith: Man, I ain't destroyed nothing!
Philip Banks: Of course you did! Look at that story! I've got to walk in that banquet room tonight filled with people who are gonna think I'm nothing but a hog-handling hick from Yamacraw!
Hattie Banks: [from behind, offended] But that *is* where you come from, Zeke.
Philip Banks: [startled] Mama! I was just having a few words with Will.
Hattie Banks: And I'm having a few words with you. What have you got to be ashamed of? We always put food on the table and clothes on your back!
Philip Banks: Mama, I'm not ashamed. There are just certain aspects of my life I don't wish to emphasize.
Hattie Banks: [furious] Where I come from, they call that being ashamed... Mister Bigshot! [walks away]

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (continuity error): When Philip comes home from work and talks about the award, Hillary is excited that she's going to get 2 new dresses for the interview and the awards ceremony. But, during the interview scene, Hillary isn't wearing a new dress. She isn't even wearing a dress at all. Despite the fact the Banks' don't end up getting their picture taken during the interview, Hillary didn't know that until the reporter arrived.

Trivia

  • The newspaper reporter during the interviews says that Uncle Phil "settled the landmark court case of Quincy vs Jones". Quincy Jones was the executive producer of the show.
  • This was actually the 6th episode to be shot, but the fourth to be broadcasted.
  • Hattie repeatedly sang or hummed the song Wade in the Water. Harriet Tubman sang this spiritual as a warning to runaway slaves. To escaping slaves, the song told them to abandon the path and move into the water. By traveling along the water's edge or across a body of water, the slaves would throw chasing dogs and their keepers off the scent. This song was better explained in a later episode of this series.
  • Will reads in TV Guide that Bill Cosby is getting a streetwise niece. This is a reference to Erika Alexander who joined the cast of The Cosby Show as Cousin Pam the same year that this episode aired.
  • Phils real name is Zeke.
