The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: A Decent Proposal

516. A Decent Proposal

Aired February 13, 1995

As Will gets ready to be discharged from hospital, he proposes to Lisa.

Quote from Lisa

Lisa: So I say one thing that you don't wanna hear and that's it? You just shut me out without even letting me explain?
Will: "Will, I don't want to marry you" seems pretty self-explanatory.
Lisa: Well, you're wrong. Will, I love you. But I feel like the only reason you asked me to marry you is because you're feeling vulnerable right now.
Will: Well, getting shot kind of has that effect on a brother.
Lisa: I understand that, but what's gonna happen when you're back on your feet and feeling like yourself again? Baby, I don't wanna have to shoot you every six months just to hold on to you.

Quote from Philip

Philip: Now, now, Vy, I'm sure the boy has a very sound financial plan in mind.
Will: That's right, you tell her, Uncle Phil.
Philip: Right. After all, he is working full time at the college.
Will: It's part time, Uncle Phil, just part time.
Philip: Oh, that's okay. I mean, you have that great hourly wage.
Will: Well, not to mention my tips.
Philip: That's right, that's right- Well, now, just what exactly is 15 percent of a frozen burrito? Oh, never mind. That's okay. I mean, once you graduate and you start your career... Um, what is it that you're majoring in, now?
Will: See, I haven't exactly declared my major yet, Uncle Phil.
Philip: Oh.
Will: You're not giving good examples right now either. Oh. Aha. Ha, ha. I see what you're doing. Hey, I watch The Cosby Show too, Uncle Phil. Ha-ha-ha. This is that episode where Theo drops out of school, right?
Philip: Well, yeah, something like that.
Will: Yeah, well, a couple more Pudding Pops, you'll be there.

Quote from Vy

Will: Isn't anybody gonna congratulate me?
Vy: Yeah, yeah, come here. My foot wants to congratulate your butt. Boy, no way are you ready for marriage. How are you gonna support a wife?

Quote from Jazz

Will: Thank you, baby. Oh, man, this week has been hell. Remind me to never get shot again.
Jazz: It's always hard the first time. I remember mine. I'd forgotten how much Jewel hates anchovies on her pizza. Well, the rest you can guess.

Quote from Will

Therapist: Remember, just because you're going home, doesn't mean you can slack off. The harder you work, the faster you'll regain use of your leg.
Will: Well, hey, you think I'll ever be able to slam-dunk?
Therapist: Sure you will.
Will: Oh, cool, because I never could before.

Quote from Vy

Vy: [to Will, as he dances] Honey, honey, I don't think what you're doing is good for you. [to Carlton, as he dances] And I don't think what you're doing is good for anybody.
Vy & Will: Psht.

Quote from Will

Vy: Hey, babe. Are you hungry, baby?
Will: [sighs] Not especially.
Vy: Come on, you've got to eat something.
Will: All right, just give me the same thing Uncle Phil has. Just make mine a single-sized serving.

Quote from Jazz

Jazz: Check it out, Will. I'm the Black dude on ER.
Lisa: Jazz, that is not a toy.
Jazz: It doesn't have to be a toy to be fun. Check this out. Clear. [screams]

Quote from Lisa

Lisa: Okay, baby, I packed your books and your Walkman. Mm. And this cute little backless gown that you just looked so good in.

Quote from Will

Lisa: Oh, Will, you fell?
Will: Oh. Yeah, I fell, uh... in love with you, baby. Lisa, will you marry me?
Lisa: Marry you? Will, did you take another one of those yellow pills?
Will: I'm serious, Lisa. I mean, you've been right here with me all through this thing. The first face I saw every morning, the last face I saw every night. I just want that to go on forever.
Lisa: Will, I don't know what to say.
Will: Your face says it all, baby. Hey, listen, we should probably... Ah. We should probably keep this thing a secret, just spring it on people at the right time. Then it's gonna blow them away.
Lisa: It sure is.
Will: Oh. Oh, babe, I'm sorry I don't have a ring for you. I can give you this one around my collar.

Quote from Hilary

Hilary: Hi. Ready to go?
Will: Oh, well, Hil, where's everybody else at?
Hilary: Well, they're all at home. It's just me. [picks up defibrillator paddle]
Will & Lisa: Don't touch that!
Hilary: Okay.
Will: I mean, Hil, on my big day, I thought that everybody would be here.
Hilary: Oh, it's not their fault. They're setting up for your surprise party.
Will: They're giving me a surprise party?
Hilary: Well, now that you dragged it out of me.

Quote from Jazz

Jazz: Lisa, I want you to know that Will's as proud of you as I am of my sweet little bride, Jewel.
Lisa: Oh, thanks, Jazz, that's nice. Um, by the way, where is Jewel?
Jazz: Her ex-cellmate broke out. They're having dinner.

Quote from Hilary

Hilary: Will, what is all this? It's too soon for you to get married.
Philip: Hilary's right. Did I say that?
Hilary: I mean, come on, I'm still decorating my new house. When would I have time to buy you a gift?

Quote from Geoffrey

Vy: Will, you are not getting married, and that is it.
Will: Look, Mom, I understand that this was a bit of a shock for you guys. But you don't have to worry about me and Lisa. We're gonna be all right. You know why? Because we got love.
Vy: What's love got to do with it?
Geoffrey: [sings] Got to do with it, got to do with it

Quote from Philip

Lisa: Thanks, Mr. Banks, for a really nice party.
Philip: Oh, okay. Uh, Lisa, could I speak to you for a second? Look, I know Will has probably told you we have some concerns about you getting married.
Lisa: You do too?
Philip: What you talking about, Lisa?
Lisa: Mr. Banks, it's not that I don't love Will. It's just that all of this is happening so fast. And I never really said I would marry him. I mean, of course, I never said I wouldn't either.
Philip: Well, you two should talk. And soon.
Lisa: Well, I know, Mr. Banks, but I just don't wanna devastate him with all that's been going on. Have you ever crushed anyone?
Philip: Well... [sighs]
[Geoffrey looks Uncle Phil up and down]

Quote from Philip

Will: Oh, can you cut up my chicken finger for me, please?
Vivian: Of course, dear.
Will: Uncle Phil, my biscuit needs some butter.
Philip: Then I suggest you butter it.
Will: My God, man, I'm in a wheelchair.
Philip: I've noticed. I've noticed a lot of things lately. Like you moping around here, acting all helpless. You can do some things for yourself, you know.
Geoffrey: Sir, when you're finished eating, I've pre-pasted your toothbrush upstairs.
Philip: Thank you, Geoffrey.

Quote from Hilary

Hilary: Will, I am really disappointed in you.
Will: Please, not another lecture.
Hilary: Well, someone has to say it. Being in a wheelchair is no excuse for wearing the same shirt two days in a row.

Quote from Hilary

Will: Hilary. Look, you don't know what it's like to lose a fiancée.
Hilary: Hello? I was engaged last year, remember? Bungee accident?
Will: Oh. Sorry, Hil. You would think hitting the concrete like that would've made more of an impact. Sorry.
Hilary: Will, we were gonna spend the rest of our lives together. But we never even would've been engaged in the first place if he hadn't been so persistent. God, I must have turned him down like 10 times before we even went out.
Will: Really?
Hilary: You know what made me finally change my mind?
Will: That big old rock he put on your finger?
Hilary: Well, besides that. It was knowing that no matter what I said or what I did or how I acted he would always be there for me. The point is, Will, if she really means something to you take a lesson from my fiancé. Don't give up. God, I miss him. Poor, poor... Tip of the tongue, Will. Please help me out.
Will: Trevor.
Hilary: Trevor. Thanks.

Quote from Will

Will: Hey, look, Lisa-
Lisa: No, Will. When I said we needed to talk I meant that I need to talk and you need to listen. Will, you are stupid.
Will: Well, stupid is as stupid does.
Lisa: Well, what is that supposed to mean?
Will: I don't know, but the movie made like a half a billion dollars.

Quote from Lisa

Will: Look, Lisa when that bullet hit me, I gotta admit, it scared the hell out of me. But it made me realize that maybe I don't have all the time in the world like I thought. I mean, who's to say what's gonna happen tomorrow or next week or the week after that? All I know is that I love you. And, Lisa, believe me, that is never gonna change.
Lisa: [sighs[]Well, in that case, the answer is yes.
Will: Yes?
Lisa: [giggles] Yes.
Will: Yes! [both laugh] Hey, hey. You wouldn't really bust a cap at me, though, would you?
Lisa: Not unless I have to.
