Summary Edit

Will tries to impress a girl's father so that he can date her, so Philip, Carlton, and Geoffrey try to teach him how to be a gentleman in a la My Fair Lady.

While he impresses the girl's father as "Kipp Smithers", Will finds out that Mimi prefers bad boys "from the hood". Will spends the night alternating between his images before realizing that being oneself is more important than impressing others.

  • This is the first time Will talks directly to the camera.

  • The song that plays during the montage is My Fair Lady.

Goofs Edit

  • In the scene where Will meets Dr. No for the first time, Will mouths the line 'string of Arabians' as Dr. No is saying the line. Frequently, Will Smith did this as a joke and the scenes had to be filmed again, but this one was missed.
  • When Carlton says "How do you propose on going about it", he is looking down as if Will's head is below him, but Will's head is above Carlton.
  • When Carlton says "It isn't as easy as it looks", Will appears to be mouthing that line also.


Carlton: Well, Will, you certainly made a name at this country club. I wouldn't be surprised if they revoked our shuffleboard priviledges.
Will: That's fine with me, man. This place is whack; I'm out of here. (sees a girl) Ooh, hold up! Ooh, all points bulletin, hormones to Will, hormones to Will!
Carlton: Hold 'em yourself, Will. That's Mimi Mumford. You can't get the first base with her unless you can impress her father. He's an eminent surgeon, a championship polo player, and around these parts, he's known as Dr. No.
Will: Why they call him that?
Carlton: Because he never says yes. No young man is good enough for his daughter.
Will: Well, he's not gonna have chance to tell me no 'cause I aint gonna ask.
Will (to Carlton): If i could show her that I'm dangerous, I'll have her like that.
Carlton: I'll bet you wouldn't.
Will: I bet I would.
Carlton: I'll bet you wouldn't.
Will: I bet you wouldn't.
Carlton: I bet you would.
Will: See, I fooled you.
Will (to Mimi): I'm not a young Republican from Connecticut and I'm not a hood. I'm Will Smith from West Philly and I've been busting my butt trying to impress you and trying to scare you, and I'm exhausted!
