Alfonso Ribeiro: [o.s.] Hey, hey!
Will Smith: Y'all don't wanna see that. Hey, come here, come here, come here. See, now, this is where the wardrobe designers put together all the ideas and stuff like that that they want Alfonso's character to wear. I think this is his favorite.
Alfonso Ribeiro: What do you want, Will? I've gotta get ready for the show.
Will Smith: No, no. Say what's up to everybody, man.
Alfonso Ribeiro: Hello.
Will Smith: No. See, I got everybody, you know, I'm taking them backstage, I'm showing them stuff. All the hush-hush undercover stuff they don't really get to see. We getting prepared for the show. What do you do to get prepared?

Will Smith: Yeah. We only got a half hour, though. Look, how about you do the Carlton dance real quick? Do the Carlton dance.
Alfonso Ribeiro: Ha, ha, ha. How about I don't and say I did?
Will Smith: Man, that dance is your trademark. So is overacting.

Quote from Will

Will Smith: This is Makeup and Hair, right? This is where we get our, uh, um, makeup and our hair done. This is Karyn and this is Tatyana. They play Hilary and Ashley. Say what's up, y'all.
Karyn Parsons: Hey.
Tatyana Ali: What's up?
Will Smith: See, I'm just showing everybody around, you know. Showing them how we get prepared for the show. Oh, hey, here. Let me put some lipstick on you.
Karyn Parsons: No.
Will Smith: I'm gonna put a little lip-
Karyn Parsons: No. Will.
Will Smith: People are looking. Let me put lipstick-
Karyn Parsons: Will, stop it. Come on.
Will Smith: Here, let me your hair. Let me do your hair.
Karyn Parsons: No. Why don't you go bug Ta? Go ahead.
Tatyana Ali: Don't bug Ta.
Will Smith: Let me put some lipstick on.
Tatyana Ali: Will, be careful with that, please.
Will Smith: I just wanna put some lipstick on you.
Tatyana Ali: No, Will, that's a really bright color, okay?
Will Smith: Think they tripping now you should see them when they be messing their lines all up.

Quote from Will

Tatyana Ali: You completely messed me up. I looked over and you had this vacant look in your eyes. I remember it.
Karyn Parsons: I was the one that wanted to go home. But don't blame me for you messing up. That was the fifth take.
Tatyana Ali: Me, messing up?
Will Smith: Excuse me.
Tatyana Ali: What?
Will Smith: I'm just trying to figure out why I couldn't put some lipstick on somebody.
Karyn Parsons: What is this thing about lipstick you got going on?
Will Smith: All right. We've known each other for six years. I should be able to put daggone lipstick on you.
Karyn Parsons: You got a lipstick thing going on.
Will Smith: You're disrespecting me in company.
Tatyana Ali: We have known each other for six years. I think it's his turn for lipstick. He's never gotten any.
Karyn Parsons: Have a seat.
Will Smith: Why y'all getting all strong?
Karyn Parsons: His eyebrows need plucking.
Tatyana Ali: Oh, his eyebrows.
Karyn Parsons: Yes.
Will Smith: Don't be tweezing my eyebrows.

Quote from Will

Will Smith: I guess all that British stuff went right out the window, huh? Ha, ha.
Joseph Marcell: I'm an actor, not a machine.
Will Smith: Yeah, whatever. Just lose the phony accent.

Quote from Will

Will Smith: Well, I just have to say there's not another group of people that I would rather be in this kind of circle with a hundred and forty-nine some-odd times. [mumurs of agreement]
Alfonso Ribeiro: Ditto.
Will Smith: Oh, ditto. Even though James takes up most of the circle...
James Avery: As well I should.
Will Smith: Oh, let's go out there and let's just have some fun. Give me some!

Quote from Will

Will Smith: Yo, now, that was a funny show. I enjoyed seeing them guys mess up. And trust me, they mess up a lot.
Dick Clark: But, Will, we didn't get to see your bloopers.
Will Smith: Uh... Pssh. We out of time, though, man.
Dick Clark: Wait. No, no, no. Wait. Will, we got lots of time. Trust me. Roll them.

Quote from Will

Dick Clark: [laughs] How'd you like the bloopers?
Will Smith: Didn't really work for me, you know. I didn't think it was too funny. Don't you gotta go see Ed McMahon or something?
Dick Clark: No, no. Look at this one. I got a real beauty.
Will Smith: I'm sorry, Dick. I'll see you later, all right? Thanks a lot.
