    • Will: (pulling Carlton) Look! You have no idea what MacArthur Park is like, it's dangerous man!
      Carlton: Oh look Will, if there's any trouble I'll call the park rangers.
      Will: (looking down with annoyance) It's not that kind of park, Boo-boo!

    • Carlton: Will, just so I don't need to tell you later, I did win the bet. Will: Whoa-whoa-whoa. No, you did not! Carlton: Yes, I did. Will: No. No. Wait. Our bet was that you couldn't spend the weekend in Compton, and you didn't. Carlton: That's only because you came and got me. Will: But if I hadn't come and got you, you'd-a got yourself killed! Carlton: And why was that important to you? Will: It wasn't. Carlton: Yes, it was. Admit it, Will. You care about me. Will: I do not! Carlton: Yes, you do. You like me. You like havin' me around. Will: Hey, Carlton, take it back, man! Carlton: Face it. You've just gotta face it. You love me. Will: My brother, you wanna take this outside?!

    • Hilary: Have Mom and Dad talked to you yet? Will: No, but I think I heard Uncle Phil upstairs testin' his belts out. Hilary: Look, guys, I know you're worried. But earlier, I was upstairs with Mom and Dad. And even though they were initially upset, now I really think they're willing to overlook the whole thing. Will and Carlton: Really? Hilary: What? Are you kidding? They're gonna kill you guys.

    • Vivian (to Will): Now, none of this would've happened if you hadn't insisted on making fun of your cousin. Now, you know, for a person who's always going around saying "I wish people would let me act the way I want", you were awfully hard on Carlton. Carlton: That was my point. Philip: That's no excuse, Carlton. Just because Will teases you, you have to do something this foolish? Carlton: Dad, I know it seemed foolish, but I had to show him that I had the courage to survive down there. Philip: That's not courage. Courage is being the way you are no matter what anybody says about you. Will teases me, but you don't see me goin' "Yo, yo, yo, homey, yo." Carlton: There's no "yo" at the end of it. I'm pretty sure of it.

    • Carlton: Yo, I'm gonna sleep on the floor. (the guys put a matress down for him to sleep on)
