Quote from Geoffrey

Philip: Okay, Geoffrey, let's have it.
Geoffrey: I'm too ashamed to talk about it. It's better if I show you. [goes to the VCR]
Will: You did a porno movie?
Hilary: Ew.
Narrator: [on TV] Montreal, site of the 1976 Olympics where some athletes become heroes to their countries and where one man became the shame of a nation. Geoffrey Butler, a long-distance runner representing Great Britain was descended from a long line of running Butlers. The hopes of a nation were on this promising runner's shoulders. Alas, his best was simply not good enough. Halfway through the race, young Geoffrey Butler hit the wall. But unfortunately, he would not accept his defeat. In this amazing footage shot by Japanese tourist, Hashi Takashi, Geoffrey Butler's unthinkable actions were captured.
Hashi Takashi: [on TV] [speaks Japanese] "He jumped in a cab. It took him to the Olympic Stadium parking lot. He entered the stadium ahead of all the other runners."
Narrator: [on TV] Geoffrey Butler's false victory was short-lived. The Takashi footage was released almost immediately and the public was outraged. Geoffrey Butler dropped from sight, never to be seen again. To his countrymen, he is the shame of a nation.
Geoffrey: That's the shameful secret I have kept inside for 17 years. [all laugh]
Will: Hey, hey. Hey, G, man. Hey, we ain't laughing at you, man. I guess we kind of are. Hey, G, why don't you run into the kitchen and get me something. Or better yet, take a cab.
Geoffrey: Sensitive lot, aren't you?

Will: You mean you and Joann... um, closed the deal?
Ashley: What are you guys talking about?
Will: Business, Ash. Here, have some breakfast. So who put the offer on the table?

Geoffrey: They won't?

Quote from Carlton

Carlton: Will, I don't wanna settle for just anyone. I mean, when I was a kid, I used to sit in my tree house thinking for hours about my dream girl. I can see her now. [a woman emerges from the elevator behind Carlton] She's got beautiful brown eyes and a smile that lights up a room.
Will: Carl- Carl- Carlton.
Carlton: She'll be a great dresser. Sophisticated. Beautiful long, dark hair.
Will: Carlton-
Carlton: Let me finish, Will. She'll love everything I love. Money, Ivy League schools and America.

Will: Geoffrey's not here, Hilary.
Hilary: Can he do that?
Vivian: He was so upset, I gave him the morning off. I better go check to see how he's doing.
Hilary: Great, so what am I supposed to do about breakfast?
Will: Oh, here's a crazy idea, Hil. How about you get it yourself?
Hilary: Fine. [picks up the phone] Bel-Air Hotel? Get me Room Service.

Quote from Will

Will: Hey, it is great to see you two together again.
Dean Morgan: You've met my wife?
Will: I mean, it is great to see you two together again.
Dean Morgan: Do I know you?
Will: Um... [stammers] Well, see I'm the manager of this place, and there's a phone call for you.
Dean Morgan: Well, who is it?
Will: [stammers] It's your uncle.
Dean Morgan: My only uncle died three years ago.
Will: Then you should take the call because it's probably really long-distance.
Dean Morgan: Excuse me for a minute. I'll leave you two to get better acquainted.
Will: I don't think that's possible.

Quote from Carlton

Carlton: [sings] I know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away

Will: Wait, even better than the day you met the Van Patten family?

Quote from Will

Duane: Hey, guys. I remember the best day of my life. It was when I did the wild thing for the first time. I cut out of high school to go to Soul Train. And the next thing I knew, me and this honey was knocking boots behind the Soul Train Scrabble board.
Will: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You mean you cut high school in Akron, Ohio to go to Soul Train, which tapes in L.A?
Duane: Hey, hey. High school was boring, okay?
Will: Yeah, we believe that one.

Quote from Will

Will: Yo, man, I remember my first time. Right before I came out here from Philly. Um, Miss X gave me an unforgettable going-away present.
Carlton: What was it?
Will: A key chain, Carlton. What do you think, man? Look, all I'm saying is she was very special and this true mack here was solid gold.

Quote from Jazz

Duane: Carlton, you've been mighty quiet over there about this here subject.
Jazz: Maybe he ain't got nothing to talk about.
Duane: Lockjaw.
Carlton: I thought we were here to play poker.
Jazz: I think he's more used to playing solitaire.
Duane: Solitaire!
Will: Oh, oh, oh. I guess y'all don't know. The only problem this stallion has is keeping the names with the faces if you know what I'm saying. You know, Carlton, tell them about the time. Tell them about the time.
Carlton: Not that it's anybody's business, but my first time will be a loving expression of my commitment to the girl of my dreams.
Jazz: That's beautiful, Carlton. I call. Check it out. Three kings... and a virgin.

Quote from Will

Carlton: Hey, Will.
Will: Hey, what you doing here?
Carlton: I'm here to sign up for the reception. The dean of the business school's a Princeton alum. You know what that means.
Will: Yeah, you'll be kissing more butt than Arsenio.

Quote from Will

Carlton: Look, Dean Morgan could be my ticket into Princeton. Kissing up is a small price to pay.
Will: Well, you know what? Just try not to embarrass yourself... again.
Carlton: What's that supposed to mean?
Will: Last night, Carlton. I mean, this innocence thing. In high school, that was cute. But come on, you're a man now. Start lying.
Carlton: Why? I have nothing to be embarrassed about. I'm waiting for Miss Right.
Will: Carlton, please, forget about Miss Right. Go for Miss Right Now.

Quote from Carlton

Carlton: So you're a Princeton fan?
Joann: Not really. But my favorite singer is performing the national anthem.
Carlton: Who's that?
Joann: Tom Jones.
[Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing plays while Carlton longs longingly into the air]

Quote from Geoffrey

Philip: [on the phone] Bob, Bob. Bob, calm down. Bob, judges don't cry. Bob, this is just an investigation. Everything's gonna work out fine. Trust me. Okay, bye. Yeah. Bye, bye. [hangs up] He's dead.
Will: What's going on, Uncle Phil?
Philip: Oh, that ethics committee is digging up dirt on every judge in town. It's a witch-hunt, man. A witch-hunt.
Geoffrey: [drops a glass] Goodness. Clumsy me.
Vivian: Philip, I thought you were getting the car. What's going on?
Philip: Oh, that committee nailed another judge. I sure am glad we don't have anything to hide. Will?
Will: Hey, look. I found that Chevette. The body was already in the trunk too.
Vivian: Honey, come on, we're gonna be late for the party.
Philip: I am serious, Will. You stay out of trouble. The slightest indiscretion could cost me my job. [Geoffrey drops another glass]
