Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Will tries to impress a snob and at the same time impress a geek!

    Another fine episode from the series. This personally made me laugh hard, I mean it was just hilarious towards the end when Will was trying to impress the girl and also impress the dad. The whole way through, I found the plot enjoyable and the acting to be great.
  • Carlton teaches Will to be preppy

    While I enjoyed this episode, I didn't like it as much as the other episodes so far in this season. One part that was weird was when Carlton was trying to get Will's story on where he came from, Carlton thought it was Penn st. I think this episode is worth watching but like any show especially new ones there needs to be some kinks worked out. All the characters are still stiff, especially Hilary. I also didn't like Phillp gossiping with his law firm partner about the other club members. It's fine if Hilary or Carlton does it but not Phillp. I was not a fan of thuggy character by Will It was funny seeing Will act all preppy. Despite the flaws it's still worth watching.moreless

    An early episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and honestly it was probably the first good episode of this classic sitcom. Dr. No is easily one of the best one-off characters they have ever created and they managed to do so just by having him say one two letter word.

    Sure, the show was over the top at times, but that is part of the program's appeal. The Will Smith character is an exaggerated personality, extremely exaggerated and that is what distinguishes it from other older sitcoms of the time period.

    Good episode here. It would be hard not to consistently laugh at it.moreless

  • Will wants to go out with a girl he meets at the country club, but first he must figure out how to impress her extremely snobbish and very protective father.

    Will wants to go out with a beautiful girl he meets at the country club, but first he must figure out how to impress her extremely snobbish and very protective father so he seeks tips from cousin Carlton on becoming preppie. The problem is that the daughter of the father doesn't want someone intelligent she wants someone from the streets. He must then rely on his street smarts to gain her attention. The funny part of this episode is when the father says no to every boy he is not impressed with. The good thing in this episode is that Carlton doesn't like the girl well actually that is good news for Will.moreless

    • Will: Hey baby. You look so good I wish I could plant you and grow a whole field of y'all.

    • Carlton: Mimi, top of the evening.
      Mimi: Carlton, for the 900th time, no I will not go out with you.
      Will: I thought you said she wasn't your type.
      Carlton: She isn't, she's too negative.

    • Will: Now remember, I'm wanted in five states. I'm hiding out from the police for robbing a gun store and what did I do before then?
      Carlton: You went to Penn State.
      Will: I went to the state pen.

    • Will: If i could show her that I'm dangerous, I'll have her like that.

      Carlton: I'll bet you wouldn't.
      Will: I bet you wouldn't.
      Carlton: I bet you would.

    • Will: (sees Mimi enter) Ooh, hold up. Ooh. Special bulletin. (pats his heart) Hormones to Will. Hormones to Will.
      Carlton: Hold up yourself, Will. That's Mimi Mumford. You can't get to first base with her unless you impress her father. He's an eminent surgeon, a championship polo player, and around these parts, he's known as Dr. No.
      Will: Why they call him that?
      Carlton: Because he never says yes. No young man is good enough for his daughter.
      Will: Well, he ain't gon' have a chance ta' tell me no, 'cause I ain't gon' ask.

      (Philip furiously walks up to them)
      Philip: What-- What in the hell are you doing?!
      Will: I'm sorry, man. It ain't my fault. I panicked. That squirrel came outta nowhere.

    • Will: I'm not a young Republican from Conneticut, and I'm not a hood, I'm Will Smith from West Philly, and I've been busting my butt trying to impress you and trying to scare you, and I'm exhausted!

  • NOTES (6)


    • Character Name: Dr. No
      Dr. No is the name of a James Bond film starring Sean Connery in which the main villain is a half Chinese/half German nuclear physicist named Julius No. His supremely confident attitude and personal motto of 'I never fail' is similar to the character in the film.
