  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Carlton climbs out of his window and is about to sneak out with Cindy, he walks towards the house. If he was sneaking out of the house, he wouldn't walk back into the house where he could get caught. He should have turned around and walked out the back.

  • Quotes

    • Philip: This time, Cindy's parents are gonna talk to me.
      Vivian: Now Philip, stay calm. Now, I'm sure they're lovely people. Just because they let their daughter run wild and take advantage of our only son and flush his life down the toilet. (shouting)Give me the damn phone, Philip!
      (Philip wrestles the phone away from Vivian and then calls someone)
      Philip: Ah, yes hello. Hey, don't you dare try to hang up on me! What kind of low lives are you, throwing a minor out on the street and endangering a helpless infant?! Well, I'm gonna do everything I can to see you behind bars! (shouting) Now, what do you have to say for yourself? Uh, so when will your mommy and daddy be home?

    • Carlton: I'm a virgin.
      Will: What?
      Carlton: I'm a virgin!
      Groom: (sets off for home) It's nice to know somebody still is!

    • Vivian: Where have you been?
      Will: At the fridge.
      Philip At this hour?
      Will: It's 8 o' clock.
      Vivian: Listen to us, Philip, we're overreacting.
      Philip: This is Will, there's no such thing as overreacting.
      Will: Adolf, Eva, why don't you just take it easy?

    • Will: I would like to point out that Uncle Phil's head is about to explode... and for once it ain't my fault!

    • Ashely: Carlton a father? He won't even let Ken and Barbie sleep in the same shoe box.

    • Vivian: I am never wearing a bathing suit again as long as I live!
      Philip: Now honey, I'm sure the pool man didn't really mistake you for me.

    • Vivian: Carlton, being a teenage parent is very hard, and you have already proved yourself irresponsible by getting yourself into this mess. How are you gonna raise him, feed him, educate him?
      Carlton: Wait. You guys aren't gonna take care of us?
      Vivian: Hold me back Philip!!!
      (Philip restrain Vivian as Will rushes Carlton out of the room. Will than picks up a banana as Philip and Vivian start to go after Carlton and blocks the door.)
      Will: Stand back ya'll! I gotta a banana, and if either of you take one more step, I'll fill both of ya with potassium!

    • Will: You're lucky I ain't gonna do you like Kunta Kinte and cut off your foot.

    • Will: Come on Carlton just cause the baby is cute doesn't mean it ain't yours.

    • Ashley: Carlton, why are you wearing a suit? Is daddy bringing home white people?

    • Carlton: Here comes Mr. Ducky! Doesn't he quack you up?
      (The baby throws it hard against the wall)
      Carlton: Wow, if I could make a throw like that they wouldn't have made me play on the girls team.

    • Will: You know that model in all them Hugo Boss ads?
      Carlton: Yeah?
      Will: You don't look nothing like him.
