  • Will truly learns a valuable life lesson....

    Will has often been lectured by Uncle Phil on working hard, but I thought this episode really made the message clear. Will decides to take a philosophy class to impress this girl, but he can't even pronounce the name of the course. He mistrusts the teacher at first, but he soon finds the class to be enjoyable. Unfortuneatly, because the class was going to be difficult, he drops out. He tells Uncle Phil that it's just one class and that it was too challenging. Philip angrily tells him that he needs to take harder classes to challenge himself, and that if he wants respect, he needs to go out and earn it, no matter how difficult it may be. It shows a weaker side of Will, how he runs from challenges sometimes, takes the easy way, and misuses his talents that many people would kill to have, but it shows that he is truly human. He decides to go back into the class, but his spot had already been taken. He was allowed to stay if he was willing to do the work and not receive any credit. He accepted, realizing that it would be a good class for fulfillment and challenge.
