Episode Summary

Carlton insists on installing an intercom. Will and Carlton get a shocking earful when they roam the intercom system at home and hear Ashley's private conversation about sex.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Let's talk about sex again

    Even though there was not mention of him. Ashley has been dating a guy who lives right down the street from her and things are going well. They are going so well, that her boyfriend proposes they have sex before he leaves for college. Before he proposes this, it shows how far Ashley needs to grow because it was obvious he was proposing. This guy should not be confused as any other guy who would try to sleep with anything that moves. The actor who played Ashley's boyfriend was a very good choice. He was Urkel from Family Matters. Not only is he a good guy but he is friends with Will and makes fun of Carlton. Ashley talks about the possibility of having sex with her boyfriend with her friends and accidentally Carlton and Will overhear it. Their overreaction was pretty funny. How they talk about it with Ashley's boyfriend was amusing. It was curious why the parents were not in this episode. I am not sure if this was intended or not. Maybe this episode would have been better. That was my only big complaint about this episode. At the end Ashley makes the right decision. It was a good way to end the episode.moreless
  • When ashley's boy friend decided to go to college out of town Ashley thinks about having sex with her boy friend before he leaves

    i thought that the episode was fun, exciting and enjoyable. It included jaleel white from the T.V. sitcom Family matters. it was fun to see him played a completely different role. It also shows Will and Ashley's bond when Will hears that she needs to talk about sex he keeps her secret not telling anyone and helping ashley with the issue
