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?

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]

Philip: Good morning, everyone.
Will: Hey, Aunt Viv, I'm telling you, if we band together we can take him.

Philip: Carlton, get the yellow pages.

Will: Don't give me that. Look at these fingernails. Look behind these ears. How long did you bathe today, young lady?
Ashley: Seven minutes. I'm sorry, but I had to wash. I have enough problems. I'm going through puberty for God's sake.

Quote from Carlton

Will: All right, so I lied. But, come on, y'all, I wanna win that car! I mean, and to win on these game shows you gotta be, you know, Carlton-like.

Quote from Jazz

Bob Eubanks: Okay, it's time for the trivia round and here's our first question. Everybody ready? Here we go. "What famous cartoon character soared to fame on his oversized ears?" [buzzer] Carlton.

Will: "In the plains," Bob!
Bob Eubanks: "In the plains." Yes, that's right. You got it for 100 points. Okay, that concludes our question round.
I want you to sit tight and find out what kind of a fine mess these folks have gotten themselves into when we come back for our stunt round on Double Trouble. We'll be right back for that.

Quote from Philip

Vivian: [on the phone] Hello? Philip, did you do something to the phone?
Philip: There was a little static on the line, so I did a little rewiring.
Vivian: Honey, there's no dial tone.
Philip: There's no static, either.

Quote from Will

Vivian: Well, I just called the repairman from the car phone. They can't come out until tomorrow.
Hilary: No phone service for 24 hours? This is a nightmare. I mean, it's like we've vanished off the face of the earth!
Philip: Don't be so dramatic, Hilary.
Will: Hey, she's not being dramatic. Jimmie Walker's phone went out for 24 hours in the late 70s and, hey, well, y'all know the rest.

Quote from Carlton

Will: Yeah, that reminds me. When I win that brand-new Corvette, I'm gonna have a phone on the dash leather on the seats, and Halle Berry on my lap.
Ashley: I can't believe you're gonna be on Double Trouble.
Carlton: Double Trouble? Are you nuts? You want to embarrass yourself in front of the entire country for a lifetime supply of Alberto VO5?
Will: What you talking about, man? It ain't embarrassing. All I gotta do is answer a couple questions and let my partner squirt some stuff all over me.
Hilary: Wasn't Jimmy Swaggart just arrested for that?

Quote from Will

Jazz: Be that as it may, when do we start practicing for the game show?
Tyriq: l'm his partner.
Jazz: I'm his partner.
Will: What, wait, how does everybody know I'm going on a game show?
Tyriq: Man, from Willy at Roscoe's Chicken 'n' Waffles. I'm telling. He knows everything. He's the source who revealed Color Me Badd was White.
