Episode Quotes

Will: Aroomph!
Jazz, Mad Dog: Aroomph!

Carlton: Aroomph!
Carlton Banks: Will, I've never judged you, but you always act like you carry around some measure of blackness that I don't live up to.
Will: Wait a minute, you never judged me? You do everything except carry around a big 'ol gavel. You act like I'm an idiot just because I talk different.
Will: [runs inside] Uncle Phil! Aunt Viv!
Vivian Banks: Will, what are you doing here? Why aren't you in San Fransico?
Phillip Banks: Where's Carlton?
Will: Uncle Phil, before you get all angry-
Phillip Banks: Where's Carlton?
Vivian Banks: Where is my baby?
Will: In Compton.
Vivian Banks: Compton?!?!
Phillip Banks: What's he doing in Compton?
Will: A really bad imitation of me.
Phillip Banks: Where?
Will: At Jazz's crib.
Vivian Banks: I'm going down there right now and getting my baby back!
Phillip Banks: Vivian, baby. Slow down. Nobody is going anywhere. Expect Will.
Will: Wait, I'm Will. Where am I going?
Phillip Banks: Down to Jazz's crib to find your cousin.


  • Goof (continuity error): In the first shot where Will and Jazz walk in the door, Carlton or C-note as he's known in Compton is not there. Then, in the next shot he comes out from the spot easily seen by the camera in that first shot.
  • Goof (continuity error): In the scene when Will went to tell Vivian and Phil about Carlton, Vivian took off the earring in her right ear to go get Carlton. Later in the scene, Vivian tries to go get Carlton again, and the earring is back on, but the left one is missing.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Uncle Phil tells Aunt Viv to put her earrings back on, she is missing the left one, and pantomimes putting the right one on.


  • When seen on WB11, the network dubs out "Compton" with a street name.
