Vivian: Did you say something, sweetie?
Hilary: No.
[Phillip takes a drink from his glass]
Hilary: Will Smith is perfect!
Will: Why, thank you. It's so nice to be appreciated.
Phillip Banks: Yes, but perhaps at another time. Your mother was trying to say something and I'm sure she would appreciate it if she weren't interrupted again.
