Episode Summary

Aunt Helen arrives unexpectedly, and upsets Will and Carlton's plans for a rendezvous with two French women. What will Carlton and Will do now that their plans are foiled?

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Will and Carlton try to clear the house

    Another good episode, funnier then the last one. I like how Will and Carlton are trying to clear the house of everyone while trying not to steal each other lady. It shows how much their relationship has changed. When Will is on the phone and Phillp comes in and he says "Barry White is here" it was a great line. The second story where Will's aunt also comes to move after thinking her husband cheated. Helen is a great character and is always good to see. The scene where Helen and her husband make up with Will being in here was very good to see. While a very small part, when Helen's husband mentions Will's father, you see Will's reaction. Maybe I am wrong but it is a small set up to what will happen later. The ending of the episode was very funny.moreless

  • The Aunt Who Came To Dinner

    Will and Carlton’s run of bad luck when it comes to the French women, especially the final scene, is a very entertaining plot with great gags, for example their enthusiasm for getting their aunt out of the house and Will’s assumption about the French.

    The fact that everything Uncle Phil “fixes” doesn’t work such as the shower and to Will’s later horror, the door to the bathroom is a very funny addition to this episode.

    The whole episode being based on a misunderstanding may seem like a kick in the face to some people or a cliché to others, but I believe the Fresh Prince managed to pull the episode off rather well, topped up with a few subplots and side jokes on Hillary’s behalf and this is yet another season two episode that is well written throughout with great laughs.moreless
