Episode Quotes

William 'Will' Smith: Thanks for helping me out, Uncle Phil and for winning my money back.
Philip Banks: Your money? I'll play you for it.
Philip Banks: We gotta get that car back.
William 'Will' Smith: Uncle Phil, you can't go down there alone. They got dudes down there that make you look like Webster.
Geoffrey: If there are hooligans there, perhaps I should accompany you, sir. In the early ages, I was sparring butler for Mr. Chuck Norris.
William 'Will' Smith: All this legal stuff won't work. The only legal phrase these people understand is, "will the defendant please rise?"


  • Will tells Uncle Phil that there's men at the pool hall who would make him "look like Webster". James Avery, who played Uncle Phil, once guest starred as a judge on Webster.
  • When Phillip asks Jeffrey for his cue stick, he calls for 'Lucille'. This is the same name as the guitar of B.B. King.
  • Will and Philip are revealed to be great at playing pool. We also learn that Philip uses his pool cue, Lucille, to play pool.
