  • Quotes

    • Carlton: I say we treat this as a code-1 priority. We need to seal the perimeter. I want four cars on 24 hour servalience, sharpshooters on the roof, and a K-9 team. And remember... we're working with a nut here.
      Detective Simmis: And who are you?
      Will: He's the nut we're working with.

    • (Will looks through infared-goggles)
      Will:(to Carlton) I can see right through your clothes with these things... No wonder you're so shy.

    • (Carlton brought in a stuffed dummy)
      Carlton: Safety-Guy is a life sized simulated man.
      Will: And you're a pint sized simulated man.

    • Carlton:(to Philip) Until we get you to the court-house, we will be watching your every move and protecting you at all costs. Trust me: we are a well oiled machine.
      (cut to a scene in a car)
      Will: Looks like you're well oiled machine just ran out of gas.

    • (Geoffrey hands Carlton a note)
      Carlton: It says "I'm gonna kill you Banks."
      Will: Yo, its a death-threat against Uncle Phil.
      Vivian: What?!
      Carlton: Dad? Oh, thank God. I thought it was for me.

    • (Carlton walks in with the safety guy dummy)
      Carlton: Look who I found.
      Ashley: Its the dummy.
      Will: And he found safety guy.

    • Carlton: At least I'm trying to obey the law unlike somebody else in this car.
      Juggles: Hey, hey, hey. Don't make me get rid of you.
      Carlton: How do you plan on doing that? Throw me out the window like you did Safety Guy. Deep underneath the chiseled body was a man of his word and you got him run over by an 18-wheeler. You BASTARD!

    • Carlton: Dad grounded me for a month for coming home late.
      Will: You deserved it. You got everyone's hopes up, than came back.

    • Carlton: Alright pal state your name and business.
      Juggles the Clown: Who the heck are you?
      Carlton: Never mind who I am and wipe that smile off your face and tell me your name.
      Juggles the Clown (in a kind of voice): Juggles.
      Carlton: Well look (juggles), take what you're here for and get out of here. So come on. Lets go, move it out.

    • Will: Now Juggles, I'm going tell you something as a friend. You suck. It's not because people don't like you or they won't give you a chance. It's because you suck.

    • Carlton: Will I got a plan. You go create a diversion, while dad and I go slip out the back.
      Will: And where does that leave me?
      Carlton (with a disappointing look): You are so selfish.
