Philip: What took you so long?
Vivian: Oh, I just spent an hour chasing my outfit on the new rotating dress rack.
Philip: Why didn't you set the variable speed adjuster?

Philip: Baby, you're the one that's wanted to redecorate.

Quote from Vivian

Geoffrey: Another minute, madam, and perhaps we'll have a diamond.
Vivian: I don't know why Philip insisted on putting in all these new gadgets. To heat something up, I have to be Lt. Uhura of the Starship Enterprise.

Quote from Vivian

Ashley: Takeout food again?
Vivian: Well, we were having leg of lamb but I accidentally put the oven on self-cleaning and now the door won't open.
Hilary: Takeout again?
Vivian: No, Hilary, I bought a new set of Styrofoam.
Carlton: Gosh, Mom, who put the rusty nails in your granola?
Vivian: Look, all this hi-tech has got me a little on edge. I'm so sorry, sweetie.
Philip: Takeout food again? What happened to the leg of lamb?
Vivian: It's being cleaned! Is that a problem?

Quote from Geoffrey

Philip: Geoffrey, where have you been? I've been looking all over for you.
Geoffrey: Mrs. Banks sent me on some errands. That is my job. I am but a lowly servant.
Philip: Geoffrey, it took some doing, but I managed to get you a ticket.
Geoffrey: Thank you sir. I am most grateful. Now I won't have to slash your tires.

Quote from Will

Will: [sings] I'm stuck in a basement Sittin' on a tricycle Girl gettin' on my nerves Goin' out of my mind I thought she was fine Don't know if her body is hers

Quote from Will

Kathleen: Forget it. I don't need you to do anything for me. Could you open this?
Will: Thought you ain't need me to do nothing for you.
Kathleen: Just open it.
Will: What's the magic word?
Kathleen: Now!
Will: [imitates buzzer] Guess again. Here, look, I can't open this thing.
Kathleen: I thought you supposed to be the big man.
Will: Look, you the one that's hungry. Use your fingernails.
Kathleen: Look, look. [removes artificial nails] Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Knock yourself out.
Will: Okay, look, Kathleen, in the last three hours you took out your eyeballs, your fingernails your eyelids, and your hair. Now what else on your body can I get at the mall?

Quote from Will

Kathleen: Yeah, your mom sucks breath mints, too! And I never really thought your ears were cute, I just thought they were big.
Will: Yeah, well, a lot of women seem to find them extremely attractive.
Kathleen: Oh, yeah, like who? Dumbo's mother?
Will: Well, I'm sorry, but I couldn't find any Lee Press-On Ears.
Kathleen: You know, Will, I am so glad we got stuck down here together. It gave me a chance to see who you really are.
Will: You know, it gave me a chance to see who you really are, too. And most of you is in a pile over there on the floor!
Kathleen: Yeah, right next to your stupid teddy bear.
Will: Hey, hey, don't be dissing my bear!
Kathleen: Well, don't be dissing my hair.

Quote from Will

Kathleen: Will? It's over, Will, we're all right.
Will: Nuh-uh. The ground moved, all right? The ground. The ground moved, all right? The ground moved!
Kathleen: Baby, it was just a little earthquake.
Will: Baby, no, listen, no. The ground moved, okay? The ground. The ground moved. Nobody was bothering it, it just moved, all right?
Kathleen: But it's over now, and we're fine.
Will: I am not fine, all right? I'm a grown man and I'm sitting under a table hugging a teddy bear. I am not fine.

Ashley: [sings] A-dab-a-doo time We'll have a gay old time [shouts] Wilma! [talks] So what do you want to sing?
Hilary: How about Go Away Little Girl?

Quote from Geoffrey

Geoffrey: Why don't we listen to the radio? [classical music plays]
Carlton: With all due respect, Geoffrey, I'll pick the station.
Hilary: Let me do it.
Ashley: I'm not listening to that.
Carlton: Well, I'm not listening to that.
Hilary: Cut it out, you guys!
Ashley: You cut it out!
Hilary: Don't you talk to me like that!
Ashley: l will talk to you- [Geoffrey removes the radio dial and throws it out the window]
Carlton: Geoffrey, what did you do that for?
Geoffrey: It was either the knob or one of you.

Quote from Philip

Ashley: This dress makes me want to puke. You can't even tell I have a figure.
Philip: You're 13 years old. You're not allowed to have a figure.

Quote from Will

Kathleen: Now, where were we? [they kiss]
Will: Beat it, baby!
Kathleen: Will! It's just an aftershock!
Will: Aftershock? Baby, look, I'm from Philly. "Aftershock" is not in my vocabulary. Wind, rain, cheese steak, these are things I know.
Kathleen: It's nothing. Now would you come back over here?
Will: Nuh-uh.
Kathleen: Why not?
Will: Because every time I come near you, the ground starts moving. I'm just trying to get back to Philly where the ground stays still and the people move.

Quote from Geoffrey

Will: [on the phone] No, no, no, baby. No, I wuv you more. Yes. No, no, no, no, I wuv you more! All right, you wuv me more.
Geoffrey: Isn't that romantic? He's quoting Elmer Fudd.

Quote from Hilary

Hilary: Dad got us all tickets to the People's Choice Awards.
Ashley: Thanks for butting in, Hilary. Anyway, the best part is-
Hilary: We get to sit with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
Ashley: Hilary, you promised I could tell.
Hilary: I know. I lied. Ooh, I am so excited! Everyone from the A list is gonna be there, which means none of my friends are gonna be there, which means they are all going to corrode with envy and hate my guts. I love it!

Quote from Vivian

Will: Hey. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Look, before y'all split each other's wigs, can we have our tickets, please?
Philip: Oh, sure. [checks pocket]
Vivian: You lost them, didn't you?
Philip: No, I did not lose them, thank you very much. I know exactly where they are. They're in my desk, in my office downtown.
Vivian: No problem. We'll just hop on my dress rack and swing by.

Quote from Will

Kathleen: Look, someone's got to come home sometime. Baby, we'll only be down here a couple of hours.
Will: Okay. But what if you wrong? Okay? What if they don't come home for, like, ten years? We'd just be like two real, real fly skeletons. Oh, man. I may never see my mom again. I may never see Zimbabwe. Never dunk on Michael Jordan. I may never see Rudy get married on The Cosbys.

Quote from Will

Will: Here we go, babe. A spot for me and a spot for you. Whoa, whoa Kathleen, hold up. That's my spot. Your spot's over here.
Kathleen: But your spot is more comfortable.
Will: I know. That's why it's my spot.

Quote from Vivian

Vivian: You know this earthquake could have been the big one. We shouldn't argue about things that just don't matter. And I'm sorry I gave you such a hard time about the gadgets.
Philip: Oh, I'm sorry. I get carried away with those things at times, baby. I'll cut back.
Vivian: What is that?
Philip: It's my automatic pulse monitor. It likes you.
Vivian: Well, honey, I hope it has a warranty.

Quote from Will

Will: You know what? Let's kill all this noise, sweetheart. Maybe we don't know each other as well as we thought. Oh, listen to me, I'm starting to sound like my Uncle Phil. Next thing I know, I'm going to wake up bald and hungry.
Kathleen: Yeah, we have been moving a little fast. I guess I should give this back.
Will: Now come on, baby. No, that's cool, keep that.
Kathleen: Well, it probably cost you a lot of money.
Will: No, it didn't.

Quote from Philip

Vivian: Oh, you poor babies! You've been trapped down here all this time. Will, where is Kathleen?
Kathleen: It's me, Mrs. Banks. I probably should go call my parents. Bye, Will. [exits]
Will: Bye, babe.
Vivian: Well, thank God nothing happened to you.
[Kathleen returns and grabs her hair]
Philip: Nothing did happen, right?
Will: Well, to be honest, something did happen. Me and Kathleen decided we just gonna chill out for a little bit. Y'all were right. Now I'm gonna call my mom. She's probably worried about me.
Vivian: Philip, did you hear that? He said we were right.
Philip: Yeah. All it took was an earthquake. You think something hit him on the head?
