Episode Quotes

William 'Will' Smith: Where we come from, age don't make no difference.
Vivian Banks: Kayla, don't be so angry with Will. l told him that l didn't think you two should spend so much time together.
Kayla Samuels: You did what? You're not my legal guardian. How would you feel if someone interfered with your life? Just face it, Professor. You fit in here. l don't.
William 'Will' Smith: l think l should go.
Kayla Samuels: Will, l want you to stay.
Vivian Banks: Look, l didn't always fit in. Let me tell you both...
Kayla Samuels: Let me tell you something. l got four older sisters, all of them mamas before they were 18. None of them finished high school. Everybody's waiting for Kayla. l'm the last chance for the whole damn family and you have no idea what that feels like.
Vivian Banks: I know what that feels like. l know what it feels like to clean hotel rooms during the day and go to school at night to get the high school diploma l didn't get.
William 'Will' Smith: You dropped out of high school?
Vivian Banks: lt's not something l'm proud of, but l did it. My whole family was counting on me too, but l couldn't handle the pressure, so I ran off with some guy and quit school. By the time l realized l'd made a mistake, it was too late. l was left with no education and nothing l was qualified to do. lt took me years to get back. lf you wonder why l seem to fit so well here it's because l worked damn hard to get here and l know l deserve it. Your problem is that you don't know you deserve it. Will knows it and l know it, but unless you know it, there is nothing more l can say.
Vivian Banks: [to Will] Honey, listen to me. l just read Kayla's Shakespeare exam. lt's way below her usual work. l'm gonna have to give her a ''D'' and that kills me.
William 'Will' Smith: A ''D''? Come on.
Vivian Banks: She's real smart, but she still has to do the work which she hasn't been doing lately.
William 'Will' Smith: That's just one bad grade. lt ain't the end the world.
Vivian Banks: When your grades slip, we ground you and we make sure you get back on track. lf Kayla slips, she loses her scholarship and she doesn't get another chance.


  • SPOILER: While they attempt to do so on several occasions, Will and Kayla never actually kiss during the course of this episode.
  • Jasmine Guy is the first guest star to have "Special Appearance by" on the scene after the intro.
  • A trip to USC is mentioned in this episode, although later in the series both USC and UCLA are replaced with fake aliases "SCU" and "ULA", respectively.
