Episode Quotes

Phillip Banks: So Vivian, how were your classes today?
Vivian: Fine. I just wish my students would concentrate more on their work. They're very easily distracted.
Will: I see it every day. Don't you, Hilary? [Hilary barks like a dog]
Vivian: Did you say something, sweetie?
Hilary: No. [Phillip takes a drink from his glass] Will Smith is perfect!
Will: Why, thank you. It's so nice to be appreciated.
Phillip Banks: Yes, but perhaps at another time. Your mother was trying to say something and I'm sure she would appreciate it if she weren't interrupted again.
Hilary: Anyway, as I was saying... [Phillip takes another drink]
Vivian: Will Smith is the king of the universe!
Will: Why, thank you Hilary! [Hilary barks]
Phillip Banks: Hilary! [Hilary barks again]
Vivian: Look, I know people get a little silly around midterms. But not at the dinner table. Hilary
Hilary: Sorry, Mom. [Carlton clinks his fork on his glass]
Hilary: Will Smith is the scum of the earth!
Vivian: Hilary! [Hilary barks, then Phillip takes a drink]
Hilary: However... Will Smith is the pinnacle of manliness. [Carlton clears his throat and Hilary smacks Will upside the head]
Vivian: Hilary! [Hilary barks, Carlton clears his throat, Hilary smacks Will again]
Ashley Banks: What's with Hilary?
Vivian: [about Hilary's purpose of going to college] We just want you to be all you can be.
Hilary: You want me to join the army?
Phillip Banks: Let's try this again.
Hilary: What do you know?
Will: I know that the basic element of physics is matter. And if you were going to write a term paper, you would have to know something, from... I don't know, the first day?
Hilary: How did you find out?
Will: I have my methods, and that Toni's roommates have a combined IQ of a raisin.
