[to Aunt Viv
You don't get it. I have four older sisters, all of them were mamas before they were eighteen, none of them finished high school. Everyone's waiting for Kayla. I'm the last chance for this family and you have no idea how that feels.
Oh, I know how that feels and I know what it's like to clean hotels in the morning and go to school at night just to get a diploma I never got.
William 'Will' Smith
Aunt Viv, you dropped out of high school?
It's not something I'm proud of, but I did.
