Quote from Carlton in Ain't No Business Like Show Business

Will: Well, I guess I'm up next, guys.

Quote from Will

M.C.: Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for our next comedian from Philadelphia, PA give it up for Will Smith.
Will: What's up? What's up? Hey, how y'all doing out there? Hey, um, I'm a little tired, though, you know. I had a rough date last night. I went out with this girl who ain't have no arms. I took her to The Arsenio Hall Show and she was like... Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo. Well, that's cool, check it out, check it out, check it out. I should be mad at my cousin Carlton, though 'cause he set me up with her. But he ain't no prize hisself. He kind of look like a miniature Bryant Gumbel on a bad hair day. That's cool, check it out. Um, but actually, my cousin Carlton, he don't have no problem buying clothes 'cause he's so short he just rips them off his G.I. Joe doll and wears 'em right out of the box. [crickets]
Hilary: Will's really bombing up there. We should do something.
Carlton: Good idea. Boo! Get off the stage! We want our money back! Go back where you came from! [audience boos]
Will: What's up? What's up?
Keith: Give me that before you hurt yourself. Give Will Smith a big round of applause, ladies and gentlemen. Come on, y'all can do better than that. Give him a big round of applause. He'll be back, just not in here.
