Jazz and Tyriq both want to be Will's partner when he goes on Double Trouble. Meanwhile, Uncle Phil causes chaos around the house with his handiwork.

Quote from Jazz

Vivian: So, who's gonna be your partner?
Will: Oh, Kellogg Leiberbaum. He's the smartest dude in school. He's gonna call me on the car phone at 8:00. That is, if Uncle Phil don't try to fix it.
Philip: Well, that's it. The next person that mentions the phone gets a boot in their behind.
Jazz: Mr. Banks, your phone is broken.
[Uncle Phil throws Jazz out of the house. Later, Jazz dusts himself off as he returns to the living room]
Jazz: It occurs to me, this family's got a lot to learn about hospitality.

Quote from Geoffrey

Vivian: Geoffrey, can I get some coffee, please?
Geoffrey: l'm working on it, madam.
Vivian: Well, when will it be ready?
Geoffrey: At this rate? About the time Queen Elizabeth opens for Queen Latifah.

Quote from Will

Tyriq: Carlton is your partner?
Jazz: Yeah, what he got I ain't got?
Will: On a straight up tip, y'all, see, Carlton got this rare disease, right? And to go on this game show was his last desperate wish before he takes that old dirt nap.
Tyriq: That's decent, Will.
Jazz: What he got?
Will: Um... Uh... He got Bette Davis eyes.

Quote from Philip

Will: Hey, Uncle Phil. I think Aunt Viv put the Ring Dings in the cabinet over here.
Philip: The sink is busted, and I'm trying to fix it, Will.
Will: Wait, wait, Uncle Phil, no. Geoffrey's eyebrows just grew back from the time you tried to fix the stove, man.
Vivian: Philip, drop the wrench and step away from the sink.
Philip: Why does everybody act like I'm dangerous when I'm trying to fix something?
Vivian: Have you forgotten the toaster incident, sweetie? Geoffrey hasn't.
Philip: How was I supposed to know a piece of whole wheat would scratch a man's cornea?

Quote from Jazz

Jazz: I'm here to practice for the game show.
Will: Wait a minute, how do you know I'm going on a game show?
Jazz: From Willy at Roscoe's Chicken 'n' Waffles. He knows everything. He's the source that revealed that Mariah Carey's Black.

Quote from Jazz

Tyriq: What's he doing here?
Jazz: No, what's he doing here?
Will: Well, come, now y'all not still mad at each other about the watch thing?
Tyriq: Yo, he sold me a fake Rolex.
Jazz: You paid with a fake 20.
Will: All right, now first of all, you should have known that it was fake when you saw that the warranty was only for two hours. And you should have known that the Jackson on a 20 ain't Jermaine.
Jazz: They all look alike to me.

Quote from Jazz

Tyriq: [to Will] Okay, you know, because I'm your best friend I respect your decision. Because I am your best friend. Peace, my best friend.
Jazz: Some best friend. When you go to your car, you gotta walk.
Tyriq: What? Don't you?
Jazz: Please, watch this. Yo, Mr. Banks, my tubby judicial brother.
[Uncle Phil throws Jazz out of the house]

Quote from Vivian

Philip: Good morning, everyone.
Will: Hey, Aunt Viv, I'm telling you, if we band together we can take him.
Vivian: Leave him alone, honey, he's mine. Philip, baby if Mr. Goodwrench wants to visit Mrs. Toolbox he'd better get Mr. Water running.
Philip: Carlton, get the yellow pages.
