Quote from Carlton

Will: Relax, squeeky. It's just a dumb old party.
Carlton: You don't look at the big picture, do you? Today, Michelle Michaels, tomorrow, Gloria Estefan. And then, dare I dream, Michael Bolton.

Quote from Geoffrey

Hilary: Look, I'm giving up a hair appointment with Sergei to hang out with Will and his loser friends.
Ashley: Will's friends are not losers.
Jazz: Greetings, y'all.
Philip: Jazz, to what do we owe your presence?
Geoffrey: My guess would be inbreeding.

Quote from Jazz

Jazz: I'm taking care of the entertainment for Will's party.
Philip: Jazz, I've already shelled out for a DJ.
Jazz: Perfect. Now we have music for my stripper.
Vivian: Oh, no, You are not bringing a naked woman into my house.
Jazz: Oh, no, no. You don't understand, Mrs. Banks. She don't come in naked. Uh-oh.
[Vivian grabs Jazz by the collar and then throws him out through the back door]

Quote from Geoffrey

Ashley: Will, I cannot believe Michelle Michaels actually spoke to you.
Carlton: Hey, I checked her coat.
Geoffrey: Really? I wonder who'll play you in the movie of her life?

Quote from Will

Ashley: You know what, Will? Maybe I'll get you Michelle Michaels' new CD for your birthday.
Will: Oh, my goodness, that's right. I do have a birthday coming up. You know, it just totally slipped my mind. Now, now, listen. Nothing too fancy. Something in a hatchback will do just fine.
Vivian: Will, you're impossible to surprise, so this year, we're not doing anything special.
Hilary: [enters] Okay, we're all set. Birthday reservations at Wolfgang Puck's new restaurant.
Carlton: Hilary.
Will: Oh, that's all right. Don't worry about it. Aunt Viv, you can still surprise me with that red sweater you hiding in the upstairs closet. Wolfgang Puck, huh?

Quote from Hilary

Will: Then, after the concert, she took me to this fly restaurant called Chez Pinette.
Hilary: Chez Pinette? Isn't that up near San Francisco?
Will: Oh, did I forget to tell y'all? She flew me up there in her private jet.
Vivian: What?
Ashley: Michelle has a private jet?
Will: Listen, she got a private jet. She has yacht.
Hilary: Does she have a brother?

Quote from Hilary

Philip: Hilary, is the coast clear?
Hilary: No, there's gonna be patchy morning fog with limited visibility.
Philip: I meant is Will gone?
Hilary: Yeah, he's gone.

Quote from Carlton

Vivian: Okay, Hilary, you are getting the DJ and I arranged for the caterer.
Philip: Why do I have to pay for a caterer if I have a butler?
Vivian: Philip complains. That only leaves the cake.
Carlton: All set. I ordered a Sunny the Seal ice-cream cake. His sleek little body is made of chocolatey goodness and he balances a ball of tutti-frutti sherbet on his buttercream nose.
Hilary: You are way too into this.
Carlton: I guess at your age, birthdays are no longer a cause for celebration.

Quote from Hilary

Hilary: Will, I don't think Hilary wants to see you right now.
Will: Why, what did I do to her?
Vivian: You made her miss her appointment with Sergei and she had to settle for his assistant.
Will: So what? [Hilary comes down the stairs] Damn. And I mean that in the nicest possible way, Hil.
Hilary: [grabs Will's throat] I look like a troll doll.
Will: Hilary, don't you think you're overreacting just a tad?
Hilary: Sleep with one eye open.

Quote from Will

Will: This is better than watching the fights with my Uncle Phil.
Michelle Michaels: I'm glad you're enjoying yourself.
Will: Hey, now, how could I not be enjoying myself? I got Vegas, you, me, a Black dude and a White dude beating each other. Life is good.
