Will: [to the nurse about Carlton] Does he look like a drug addict?
Nurse Irene: Do I?
Will: Can we stick to the subject, please?
Nurse Irene: [to Carlton] Listen, sweetie, the first time I came to this hospital, it was on a stretcher. I've been from Yale to jail and from Park Avenue to park bench, but now I'm clean and sober.

Nurse Irene: [to Will] I like him. Try and help him to stick around

Carlton Banks: Will, how long have you been on drugs?
William 'Will' Smith: I haven't been. Someone gave them to me. I've been really stressed out with everything I have...
Carlton Banks: Will, calm down. You're not the only person in this house that hasn't thought about it.
William 'Will' Smith: You? You don't seem like the type that would even consider drugs.

Carlton: I feel terrible. I never thought losing my virginity would be this painful!
Will: Carlton, I got some bad news...
Carlton: Oh, God, I malfunctioned!
Will: No. See, you never made it past the dance floor. Those pills that you took weren't vitamins.
Carlton: What were they?
Will: Look, you gotta promise you're not gonna overreact...
Carlton: What could be worse than finding out I'm still a virgin?

Carlton Banks: [about Uncle Phil's driving] Dad knows exactly what he's doing. Do you think anybody would drive by the same tree seven times on purpose?

Carlton Banks: For a long time, it gave me nightmares, having to witness an injustice like that. It shows you just how cruel this world can be. I can still hear them taunting him. "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids." Why couldn't they just give him some cereal?

Carlton Banks: [after surviving the night in a cave] Dad, wake up! We made it!
Philip Banks: [while asleep] Vivian, Vivian, I'm not a machine!

[pulls tree branch off the ground]
William 'Will' Smith: is about to connect with Carlton's head!

Carlton: For a long time it gave me nightmares, witnessing an injustice like that... It's a constant reminder of just how unfair this world can be... I can still hear them taunting him... "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!"... I mean, WHY COULDN'T THEY JUST GIVE HIM SOME CEREAL?

William 'Will' Smith: [pops up from behind Carlton's chair in a Freddy Krueger mask] Four, get the stick out of your butt.

Carlton Banks: [to Will] We were detained for a few hours, Dad straightened everything up and we were released. The system works.
William 'Will' Smith: I hope you like that system. You're going to be seeing a lot of it in your life.
Carlton Banks: Not if I bring a map.
William 'Will' Smith: You haven't learned a thing this weekend. No map is going to help you. Neither is your glee club or who your daddy is because when you drive a fancy car in a strange neighborhood, none of that matters. They only see one thing.

[last lines]
Carlton Banks: Dad, if you were a policeman and you saw a car driving two miles an hour, wouldn't you stop it?
Philip Banks: I asked myself that question the first time I was stopped. Good night, son.
[exits room]
Carlton Banks: [to himself] I would stop it.

Carlton Banks: The police were doing their job. We were detained a couple hours, and dad came and got us out. The system worked.
Will: I hope you like that system, because you're gonna be seeing a lot more of it in your life.
Carlton Banks: Not if I bring a map.
Will: Man, you don't get it, do you? A map is not gonna help you. Neither is your Glee Club, or your fancy Bel-Air address, or who your daddy is. They don't care about any of that. They only see one thing.

Philip Banks: [to Will as he walks into the room] Excuse me! Is this what you've been telling my boy? That life is one big orgy?
[backs Carlton and Will in a corner]
Philip Banks: Well, college is hard work, son! And after that, a family, which is even more hard work, and a teenage daughter who doesn't want to be seen in public with you, and a wife, a wife, who won't let anywhere near her, and a butler, a butler who may be the father of your child! And a gardener, a gard...
Carlton Banks: Dad!

Carlton Banks: [about his date] I'm not bringing her anywhere near you.

Carlton Banks: The cousin that stole every woman I ever had.
William 'Will' Smith: Oh, please. I stole one girl.
Carlton Banks: My point exactly.

Phillip Banks: Carlton, you don't have to do anything.
Carlton: Will says I do. He says it's time for me to leave the nest and start having sex with girls. Safe sex, mind you, but lots of it!

William 'Will' Smith: Stand back, y'all. I got a banana and if either of you take one more step, I'll fill both of ya with potassium.

William 'Will' Smith: You know that model in all them Hugo Boss ads?
Carlton Banks: Yeah?
William 'Will' Smith: You don't look nothing like him.

Carlton Banks: I'm a virgin.
Groom: It's nice to know someone still is.

[the girl Carlton was supposed to marry leaves him at the altar]
Carlton: When she told her parents she was going to marry me, they came and got her right away.

Will: Come on, Carlton. Just because the kid's cute, doesn't mean you're not the father.

Carlton Banks: Mommy!

Philip Banks: I wanna know what excuse you two have for pulling such a stupid stunt.
Carlton Banks: We needed the money.

Philip Banks: Federal offense. Go on.
William 'Will' Smith: Then we pawned Aunt Viv's bracelet to get the money for the stock.
Philip Banks: Grand larceny. Impressive.
William 'Will' Smith: Then, we lost the money, so we had to strip to get the bracelet back.
Philip Banks: That would be indecent exposure. Is there more?
Carlton Banks: I'm afraid so, Dad. We never got the clasp fixed on Mom's bracelet.
Philip Banks: You never got... I don't know what to say! What can I do? What do you boys think I should do?
William 'Will' Smith: I don't know, reward us for our honesty? Hey, it worked for the Beav.
Philip Banks: DO I LOOK LIKE A WHITE GUY NAMED WARD?

Carlton Banks: Granted, we are desperate for money, but maybe you should stop and think about the kind of life you'd be leading.

Geoffrey: Well, he did something I've never seen him do in all the years I've been here.
William 'Will' Smith: 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 barbeque ribs left over from yesterday?
Carlton Banks: Yeah?
[Geoffrey opens the fridge]
William 'Will' Smith: [he and Carlton jump back shocked] Oh, my God! It's still there!

Carlton Banks: No.
William 'Will' Smith: Neither do I.
Carlton Banks: Look, I don't wanna see my father with tubes up his nose, okay?
William 'Will' Smith: Carlton, there's gonna come a time when all he has is tubes up his nose.
Carlton Banks: Not my father!
William 'Will' Smith: Everybody's father! Except mine, cause I don't know where the hell he is!

William 'Will' Smith: Only if he eats us first.

[Carlton visits Phil in the hospital after he has a heart attack]
Carlton: Hey, dad. I would have come sooner but... I couldn't stand to see you like this. I mean, you're like Superman to me.

Will: [to Hilary] And what if he told you you couldn't entertain men in the jacuzzi anymore?
Vivian: You had a man in the Jacuzzi?
Hilary: [pause] This isn't about me, it's about Will.
Vivian: I want to know when you had a man in the Jacuzzi.
Hilary: Look, I have my own private life. What happened between me and the man in the Jacuzzi is between me, the man, and his video camera.

Vivian: [Carlton comes home from the airport all beaten up] Sweetie, what happened to you?
Carlton: Will told everyone at the airport I was Bryant Gumbel.
Will: I thought we'd get the luggage faster.

Carlton: No. Five old ladies attacked me for being mean to Willard.

Carlton: Will, you MUST change.
Will: Carlton, you MUST grow.

Philip Banks: Will, get changed now!

Carlton: Because everyone knows Buckwheat didn't go to medical school.

William 'Will' Smith: Carlton, it was one measly little percentile point, all right? But, I won't hesitate to throw it in your face if you don't leave me alone.
Carlton Banks: Well, everyone still knows I have the superior intellect.
[sprays kitchen window]
William 'Will' Smith: Then, why are you using car wax on the window?
[mockingly]
William 'Will' Smith: This a window, this is Windex. Can you say that, IittIe boy?

Carlton: Who said, "It's better to die on your feet than live on your knees"?

Will: So, who put the offer on the table?
Carlton Banks: She did, and the terms were so attractive I jumped on at it right away, and don't worry... I protected my investment.
[Will and Carlton run out of the room laughing as Hilary walks in]
Hilary Banks: What was that about?
Ashley Banks: Carlton lost his virginity.

Carlton Banks: Is the great Will Smith admitting he's wrong?
Will: Well there's a first time for everything... but I guess you knew that.

Will: Here we are. Jazz's crib.
Carlton Banks: Crib: dwelling, home, place of residence.
[holds up note-cards and Will takes them]
Will: Hip-hop flashcards?

Will: Aroomph!
Jazz, Mad Dog: Aroomph!
[Carlton tries to join in]
Carlton: Aroomph!
[awkward silence]

[Carlton is planning to hang out in a dangerous neighborhood to fit in with the homies]

William 'Will' Smith: Look, Carlton, man. I have no idea what you are talking about.
Carlton Banks: I'm not stupid, Will. It's all coming together. The runny nose, the watery eyes. You just couldn't keep your hands to yourself.
William 'Will' Smith: Look, look, Carlton. Now, I know you are sick, probably a little delirious now. You probably had one too many of those children's aspirin or something.
Carlton Banks: That piece was mine.
William 'Will' Smith: You ain't get to get all nasty.
Carlton Banks: You shouldn't have done it, Will.
William 'Will' Smith: I know, I know, Carlton. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have taken Paula out. You're right, man. She was coming onto me. I just couldn't resist, man.
Carlton Banks: Paula? I was talking about that last piece of cheesecake.
William 'Will' Smith: [looks around and starts stammering] Uh, so was I. See, you ain't hip to it. See in Philly, we name our food, right? Like cheesecake is Paula and uh, a Snack Pack is Boomsheeka.
[looks toward the camera and speaks into it]
William 'Will' Smith: I can't see him, you can. Is he buying it?

Carlton: What? But I did everything. I cooked, I cleaned, I hand-washed your toilets.
Top Dog: Everything your butler does for you. I'm not accepting no Bel-Air bred prep school sellout into my fraternity.
Will: Hey man! You can stop all that-
Carlton: No, wait Will. I got this one.
Carlton: You think I'm a sellout... Why? Because I live in a big house where I dress a certain way? Or maybe it's because I like Barry Manilow?
Will: Yo, he mean Barry White, y'all.
Carlton: Being black isn't what I'm trying to be, it's what I am. I'm running the same race and jumping the same hurdles as you, so why are you tripping me up? You said we need to stick together, but you don't even know what that means. If you ask me, you're the real sellout.

Carlton Banks: It's not gonna happen again, not to me!
Will: Carlton, I understand that you're scared, man, but the world can be a scary place. You just gotta learn to deal with it, alright?
Carlton Banks: Yeah, well, I found my way.
Will: That's not you, man, that's them.
Carlton Banks: Look, I didn't come here for your approval, alright? I came here to see how you were. I'm outta here.
