The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: Same Game, Next Season

512. Same Game, Next Season

Aired December 12, 1994

When Will tries to impress Lisa's father, Fred (John Amos), he gets more than he bargained for. Meanwhile, Uncle Phil considers early retirement, prompting his kids to worry about the family finances.

Quote from Hilary

Ashley: Maybe Daddy's password is some kind of food.
Carlton: Look, I tried every dish in Geoffrey's cookbook, nothing works.
Hilary: Unbelievable. What kind of idiot picks a password no one can guess?
Carlton: See, it's that kind of question that knocks you out of the running... for Dad's favorite. Just keep a lookout.

Quote from Carlton

Hilary: Where did you learn to do this?
Carlton: The Young Republicans sponsored a seminar. Ah, open sesame.
Hilary: Oh, my God, it's full of gold bars. [giggles]
Carlton: Those are Twinkies.

Quote from Geoffrey

Geoffrey: Well, I see someone's coming into money.
Ashley: Geoffrey, we weren't taking any money.
Geoffrey: I meant me.
Carlton: All right, Geoffrey, what's it gonna cost to keep you quiet?
Geoffrey: Well, considering the magnitude of this betrayal of your father's trust... I'd say a thousand dollars.
Carlton: Well, that's cool, we can handle that. No problem.
Geoffrey: A week. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to wash some dirty laundry.
Carlton: He has no scruples.
Hilary: Shut up and close the safe.

Quote from Will

Hilary: Daddy, how can you even think about retiring early? I'm in middle of a holiday shopping season. Are you mad?
Philip: I simply said I was considering it.
Ashley: I hope you do retire, that way you can spend more time around the house.
Carlton: He's here plenty. You can't do this, big guy. Money, we need money.
Philip: Carlton, you know we can afford this. You're the one who helped me invest. My money makes money. We're rich.
Carlton: That's right, we are rich.
Hilary: Never thought about it like that.
Carlton: Cool.
Will: If we're so rich... why we can't afford no ceiling? [the camera pans up to reveal the stage lighting]

Quote from Philip

Philip: Oh, I remember the first time I met Vivian's father. He was an obstinate, dictatorial old tightwad. We didn't get along at all.
Will: Really? Even with all that in common?
Philip: I'm serious, Will. Wasn't till the day he died that he did something to improve the situation.
Will: Really? What did he do?
Philip: He died.

Quote from Lisa

Will: Stop worrying, go to work, and I will handle your father.
Lisa: Will, you don't know my father. He's very overprotective. The last time one of my boyfriends spent an evening with him... it ended our relationship.
Will: So, what? You never saw the guy again?
Lisa: No, no one did. He left town. At least that's what my dad told the police.
Will: I think you're exaggerating a little bit.
Lisa: Okay, maybe a little. But, just in case... it's been really nice knowing you.

Quote from Philip

Philip: But the point is, first impressions can last forever. So you be careful tonight.
Will: No, don't worry about me, I'm gonna just be myself. Let the charm take care of it for me.
Philip: Now, Will, I don't think that's such a good idea. You see, your charm is kind of an acquired taste. Like liver.
Will: What you talking about? Man, you hate liver.
Philip: Exactly.
Will: So, what? What, are you saying I shouldn't be myself?
Philip: Oh, let me just leave you alone with your thoughts, huh?

Quote from Ashley

Ashley: Guys, we have to do something about Dad.
Hilary: Listen, I've tried, but he likes that shirt.
Ashley: No, I mean we have to try to discourage this whole early retirement thing.
Carlton: I thought you were all for it.
Ashley: I was, but I've been thinking, if Dad has more time around the house... I'm the one he's gonna be spending it with.
Carlton: Why you?
Ashley: I'm his favorite.
Hilary: His favorite what?
Ashley: His favorite child, his little girl. I thought it was obvious.

Quote from Hilary

Carlton: Well, think again, little sister. You are not Dad's favorite.
Hilary: That's right, Ashley, I am.
Carlton: You? Pfft!
Hilary: Hey, it's a known fact that the oldest is always the favorite. Mom and Dad got it right the first time.
Ashley: Then why did they keep trying?
Carlton: Well, you're both wrong. It's me. [Ashley & Hilary laugh] Wait, wait, wait, you cost Dad money. I make Dad money. And Daddy's little girl doesn't mean beans next to a chip off the old block... which is me.
Ashley: And Nicky.
Hilary: Nicky's only been around a few years, Daddy hardly knows him. It's me.

Quote from Will

Will: Hey, listen, Mr. Wilkes, I want you to order anything that you want. Price is no object.
Fred: Yeah, yeah, I heard you the first six times.
Will: Oh. Wow. You know, they're known for their lemon soup.
Waitress: Uh, sir, that's a finger bowl.
Will: Oh, my fault, my fault. [lifts bowl up and sips the soup] Excellent.
Fred: You know, Will, I don't know about this place. See, I'm more of a pizza guy.
Will: Oh, well, they got pizza. What do you want on it? What, a tandoori duck? Grilled pheasant?
Fred: For 24 bucks, I want a 20-dollar bill on it.
Will: [laughing] He said... That is so... It was fu...

Quote from Will

Will: Wait a minute, wait a minute. Mr. Wilkes, come on, don't leave. This is... This is not the real me. This is Carlton.
Fred: Why you putting on airs, boy?
Will: Look, please? Mr. Wilkes, I like your daughter more than any other girl... that I've ever been with in my life. And believe me, I've been with... Out of girlfriend for a long time. Listen, I just wanted to make a good impression on you.
Fred: Well, look, as long as we're being honest with each other... I wasn't gonna like you no matter how you acted.
Will: Oh, why not?
Fred: Well, ever since the good Lord took my Yvonne... my life's been pretty empty, Will, except for Lisa. I'm a little overprotective.
Will: Really? Look, Mr. Wilkes, I mean, the real Will Smith ain't bourgie. I'm telling you, he's a low-class working stiff like yourself. Even lower. [both laugh] Hoo!
Fred: Hey, I tell you what, Will. Why don't we get out of this joint and introduce me to the real Will Smith?
Will: Yes, sir, sounds good to me. Oh, say, baby, you seen the real Will Smith? [laughs]

Quote from Philip

Ashley: I told you this whole idea was stupid. Can you put the disk back in the safe before Dad catches us?
Philip: Too late.
Carlton: Hilary, do you even know what the word "lookout" means?
Ashley: Daddy, I am so sorry.
Carlton: Let's just settle this right now. Look, big guy... Sir... we just wanted to see what was in your will.
Philip: I knew it. We never should've let you play with those Menendez boys.

Quote from Philip

Hilary: Daddy, we just wanted to know who your favorite child was.
Philip: I can't believe you would even ask.
Hilary: See, it is me.
Philip: Right now, it's hard to love any one of you, but I do. Ashley, I love your sensitivity, your warmth. Carlton, I love your ambition and your persistence. Hilary. Hilary.
Hilary: Yes, Daddy?
Philip: Nice earrings.
Hilary: Oh, Daddy.
Philip: I love Nicky's innocence and his enthusiasm. I love you all differently, but equally. Do you understand?
Ashley: Daddy, that was beautiful.
Hilary: I love you.
Carlton: Okay, they're gone now.

Quote from Hilary

Carlton: Well, there's a simple way to find out. Dad's will. Whoever gets the most wins.
Ashley: That's ridiculous. More money doesn't mean more love. We're all his children, right?
Hilary: I don't know, I'm starting to think you were adopted.
Carlton: Come on, let's find that will.

Quote from Will

Will: So Lisa says you're an automotive technician.
Fred: No, I'm not. I fix cars. I manage a garage.
Will: A garage. Wow, that is so interesting.
Fred: No, it's not. It's a job. Hey, but I like working with my hands. It gives me the feeling I'm earning my money... instead of having it just handed to me.
Will: [chuckles] I know the feeling. [feigns laugh]
Fred: No, you don't. Look, Will, Lisa may like you... but personally, I think you're a bourgie little toad. Thank you for a wonderful evening. I'll catch a bus back to Lisa's house.
