Season 3 Quotes

03x09 - A Night at the Oprah Season 3 / Episode 9: - A Night at the Oprah

Audience Member: If you ask me, your whole damn family is crazy.
William 'Will' Smith: I'm not gonna blow up. If this was in Philly, it might have to be something, but we're on T.V., I'm just gonna chill.
Audience Member: And if your mama sent you out there to live with them, then she's crazy too.
William 'Will' Smith: Man, don't nobody talk about my mama!
03x02 - Will Gets Committed Season 3 / Episode 2: - Will Gets Committed

William 'Will' Smith: Hey, man. I'm from Philly. We had to save up to be poor! You don't get it.
Noah: Yeah, I get it alright. You come down here with your X-cap and your cool Doc Martens, and you're all "dope" and "word to your mother", and you think that makes you committed. This isn't a game, Will, and if you think it is, then maybe you better not come back because you don't get it.
