Episode Quotes

Will: Uncle Phil, I don't think all this legal talk is gonna work. I mean, the only legal phrase these people know is, "Will the defendant please rise?"
William 'Will' Smith: Uncle Phil, how did you learn to shoot like that?
Philip Banks: Well, I spent some time at several pool halls in my days. That is why I didn't want you in one. You think I want to spoil your fun? I just want you to come home in one piece.
Philip Banks: A hard head makes for a soft behind.
William 'Will' Smith: So, you're gonna spank me?

Trivia

  • 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.
  • Will and Philip are revealed to be great at playing pool. We also learn that Philip uses his pool cue, Lucille, to play pool.
  • When Phillip asks Jeffrey for his cue stick, he calls for 'Lucille'. This is the same name as the guitar of B.B. King.
