Guess Who's Coming to Marry? is the sixth episode of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air's second season which was first broadcast on October 14, 1991.

Summary Edit

Tensions spill over just before the wedding of Will's Aunt Janice when Will's mom meets Janice's intended, who is a white man. Though Vivian and Helen are accepting of Frank and the marriage, Vy refuses to accept it, believing that Janice is making a mistake and not thinking about the bigotry she and Frank will face as an interracial couple, as well as their children. 

Vy refuses to attend the interracial wedding and forbids Will too but she is eventually convinced to go and Aunt Janice happily marries her fiancee.

  • Diedrich Bader as Frank


Vivian: Here we are, the Smith sisters, loud live and in color.
Helen: More like quiet, evil and colored.

Vivian: Janice, why didn't you tell anyone about Frank?
Janice: I guess I was hoping no one would notice?
Helen: Girl, who did you think you were bringing him home to, Stevie Wonder?

Vivian (after seeing Janice's fiance for the first time): You know, when Janice described him, she didn't mention that he was...tall. Not that I have any problems with people who are...tall.
Lester: My cousin used to date a girl who was...tall.
Phil: Heck, the boy probably went to a predominantly...tall school.
Will: Am I alone in this or did no one notice he was white?
Vy: What the hell is wrong with Janice?
Will: Oh, I'm sorry. Did I say white? I meant tall.
Hilary: He didn't seem that tall to me.

Hilary: Do I have to do everything myself?
Geoffrey: Miss Hilary, the day you do everything yourself will be the day I square-dance naked on the White House front lawn.


  • The title of this episode is a reference to the 1967 comedy-drama film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, which features a similar plot of family tensions over an interracial couple.
