Fun Stuff

From "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: The Fresh Prince Project (#1.1)" (1990)
Will: I remind you of where you came from and what you used to be. Now I don't know somewhere between Princeton and the office, you got soft. You forgot who you are and where you came from.
Phillip Banks: You think you're so wise.
[Will looks away from Uncle Phil]
Phillip Banks: Look at me when I'm talking to you. Let me tell you something, son. I grew up on the streets just like you. I encountered bigotry you could not imagine. Now you have a nice poster of Malcolm X on your wall. I heard the brother speak, I read every word he wrote. Believe me, I know where I come from.
