The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: Papa's Got a Brand New Excuse (1994) is claimed to be the most emotional episode, due to the fact of how Will Smith felt about his relationship with his father, both in the show and in reality. Although his real-life father was there for him growing up, Will had a lot of friends who never knew their fathers, and his emotions in the final scene came from thinking of all his friends who never had a father in their lives.
