Episode Summary

When Hilary is ordered to do community service at a free clinic, the doctor in charge becomes the antidote for her marriage-mindedness.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Not so good

    This again, does not satisfy me in comparison to Season 1. Here, Hilary does community service and meets a doctor whom she falls in love but he only treats her as a friend. Here, I could tell the twist at the end. Its the same twist in everything; The guy already has a girlfriend. This twist is the most overused twist I've ever come across. Its not funny

    Aside from a few giggles, the plot of the episode sucked and it really didn't interestmemoreless
  • Hilary does connuity service

    Another quality episode. By Fresh Price standards it was average, but an average episode from this series is a good one. It's interesting to see Hilary fall for the guy but the guy show no interest in her. It was funny to see her try to impress him. The scene with Hilary and the old man were one of the best. While you find out the doctor has a girl friend.. the doctor does not come off as a jerk or his girl friend bad for him. While at the party, you see Will try to pick up on some of the women and is unsuccessful. I liked the scene where the female doctor is telling Will about the different surgeries she does. It was also funny seeing Jazz live the Banks family. It would go how you expect.moreless

    Hillary trying to impress the doctor is a very entertaining plot but Jazz living with the Banks is even more hilarious, with great scenes such as the briefcase in the trash compactor and Jazz not wanting Hillary’s guest to stay since there isn’t enough food for one more.

    Hillary’s attempt to look intelligent is very amusing and Jazz thinking she was a different person was terrific and something only Jazz’s character could do.

    The end was a bit weird because even if he wasn’t married, the amount of times he was asked, you’d think he would have mention he had a girlfriend but the last scene, as usual has the comedic and familiar ending of Jazz getting kicked out of the house, ending the episode in a very good way.moreless

      Will: Oh no, not me Uncle Phil. Hey, after the last time, I just bought a car cover.
      Ashley: Mom, I can't find my cassette player. (looking at Will) Does anyone know what happened to it?
      Will: Oh sure, blame the black guy.
      Carlton: Mother, somebody took my address book. (looking at Will) I hate to think what might happen if it fell into the wrong hands.
      (Will slams his paper down on the table in frustration. Jazz walks in with his arm around a girl and wearing a robe and carrying a cassette player)
      Jazz: Hola, amigos.
      Ashley: That's my cassette player.
      Philip: That's my bathrobe.

    • (Carlton comes in with a shrunken sweater)
      Carlton: Jazz, I told you not to touch my clothes! And this label clearly says hand wash!
      Jazz: And that's exactly what I did. Before I stuck it in the machine, I washed my hands.

    • Jazz: I work all day to keep this house nice for you. I cook, I clean, and work my fingers to the bone, and this is the thanks I get?
      Will: Well, I bust my hump at school all day, and you just sit around here watching soap operas and eating bon-bons!
      Jazz: Well excuse me for having a little fun! Maybe it's because you never take me out anymore!
      Will: Well maybe I would if you fixed yourself up a little bit! Now wait a minute. We sound like an old married couple.
      Jazz: So now I'm old? I gave you the best years of my life!
