Philip Banks: Did you refer to Hurricane Robert as Bobby? It was serious, darling. It wiped out half of Miami.
Hilary Banks: Well, excuse me for trying to spread a little sunshine.

Gr8at – The Fresh Prince

Released in 1990 and running for six years, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was one of the coolest and funniest shows around, and is still shown all the time. One of the main reasons was just how brilliant Will Smith was. Here are eight of his funniest jokes from the show.


Tyrell: What’s he’s doing here?
Jazz: Na, what’s he still doing here?
Will: You’re not still mad at each other about of the watch thing.
Tyrell: He sold me a fake Rolex!
Jazz: You paid with a fake 20!
Will: Now first of all you should have known it was fake when you saw the warranty was only for two hours, and you should have known that the Jackson on a 20 ain’t Jermaine.

Carlton: Are you nuts! I’m not bringing her within 100 yards of you.
Will: Why Carlton, i’m your cousin man.
Carlton: The cousin who stole every woman i ever had.
Will: Oh please. I stole one girl.
Carlton: My point exactly.
Will: You’ve got some time uncle Phil. You want some grub?
Uncle Phil: I’ve already eaten.
Will: Is that a yes or a no?
Carlton: Why don’t you act like an adult?
Will: Why don’t you look like one?
Uncle Phil: Ron said his buyer is willing to go $1 million above market value [for the house]
Carlton: Yes, there is a God.
Ashley: Look at you all! Will! Say something!
Will: Ching Ching!
Will: Carlton, listen I need your help man. I gotta go into training and kick Omar’s butt. Come on!
Carlton: Hang on a second. I thought you said this was a one-on-one. What do you need me for?
Will: If I win I need a witness. If I lose you’re my blood type.
Carlton: I still can’t get over it Will. if you hadn’t of pushed me out of the way that bullet would have gotten me
Will: Not necessarily. Even if you stood right in front of me he still could have hit me from my belly button up.
Will: Carlton.The customers are complaining there ain’t no bacon in the BLTs.
Carlton: Well where’s the law that says the B has to stand for bacon. Read the damn sign.
Will: Bread, lettuce and tomato!

Hilary Banks

Hilary: It’s ridiculous to compare yourself to Will. You’re the captain of the debate team. You’re a straight A student. You’re leader of the glee club. So what if Will’s good at basketball?
Carlton: Thanks Hilary. That means a lot to me.
Hilary: And besides, if that basket were two feet lower you’d be just as good as he is.

Fresh Prince

I’ve got a few questions for you. When you got this alleged confession from these two young men, did they have a lawyer present? No, because I’m their lawyer. Did you notify their parents? No, because we’re their parents. So, officer, don’t tell us to wait and don’t tell us to sit down. Just open that damn cell and let those two boys out of there or I’m going to tie this place up with so much litigation that your GRANDCHILDREN ARE GONNA NEED LAWYERS!
