Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Great episode

    This episode was a truly great one but not one of the best of season 5. It had some truly hilarious moments such as in the shopping centre. Great acting by Will Smith and a great story with Lisa. It definitely needs to be watched
  • Will and Lisa have a fight

    Will and Lisa have been dating for a while at this point has went along pretty smoothly. It's going along fine until Will get jealous of Lisa meeting up with a friend who is a guy. It's gets rougher when Will has his beeper (a dated reference for you kids) to only pretend that is was nothing when it looks like it came from a women. Will takes a step further to try to takeout one of his women in his black book. Will does not do anything because of how he feels for Lisa. I really liked that Will did it. The funny part of the episode is when Will does the fat suit. It was funny when his pants fell down. I also like despite their fight they did end up telling each other that they love each other. A really funny moment at the ending when Will handed Carlton his black book.moreless
  • It was hilarious, as most Fresh Prince episodes are.

    I never thought that Philip would get a personal trainer, but I knew that if he ever did, he could NEVER stick to their strict rules. :P I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did. (But then Carlton drove her away. Lol. Typical Carlton.) Will's increasing obsession with Lisa was so sweet, and in the end they were closer than ever. It was so sweet. The grocery store scene with Will in the "fat suit" was my favorite part of the episode. Lol! I loved it when he confronted Lisa with his pants down and he didn't even know it. Lol. It was a pretty good episode.moreless
