  • Quotes

    • Phillip: You'll get the air when I get the rent.
      Carlton: You'll get the rent when we get the air.

    • Philip (Philip comes out and sees Carlton, Will and their friends): I see you're having a gathering. Isn't that wonderful? (Steps on Carlton's duck float)
      Carlton : Hey Pops! You popped my duck!
      Philip : I'm sorry son. Here, here's a 100 dollars.
      Carlton (Takes the money): That's more like it!

    • Philip: How dare you two defy me!
      Carlton: Now see here big guy!
      (Philip pokes Carlton's duck tube causing it to pop)
      Carlton: Oh my god! Howard! (Runs away crying)

    • Will: G, listen, how upset was Uncle Phil last night?
      Geoffrey: Well, he did something I've never seen him do in all the years I've been here.
      Will: What? A sit-up?
      Geoffrey: It's a bit more serious than that I'm afraid. You know the cherry cheesecake, candied yams, and the barbecue ribs left over from yesterday?
      Carlton: Yeah.
      (Geoffrey opens refrigerator)
      Will (Will and Carlton jump back shocked): Oh my god, it's still there!

    • Steffi: Hi, Mr. Banks.
      Philip: Steffi, do your parents know you're here?
      Steffi: The hell with my parents! Will taught me that.

    • Steffi: Hi, Mr. Banks.
      Philip: Steffi, do your parents know you're here?
      Steffi: I don't think so. They're in Aspen.
      (she sees a guy pass by)
      Steffi: And I'm in heaven!

    • Carlton: Steffi, go home. You're not age appropriate for this party. (Carlton puts on duck floatie) I'm going swimming.

    • Carlton: Will, have you seen Dad anywhere around?
      (Will looks around for Philip and eventually spots him)
      Will: Well, that's either him or a rhino that got his horn chopped off.

    • Judge: However, air conditioning is considered a luxury. Rent cannot be withheld from a malfunctioning appliance!
      Will: Meaning?
      Judge: Meaning you'll have to pay the rent!

    • (Will gives Philip a handshake)
      Phil: I don't want your hand, I want my rent.
      Will: Oh come on, Uncle Phil, haven't you learned anything from all of this?
      Phil: Yeah, never rent from relatives.

    • Will: What I offer, is the truth!
      Philip: Oh shut up Will! Your honor, he is making a mockery of the entire legal system!
      Will: And he is making a mockery of an finely-cut Italian suit!
