Summary Edit

Will and Carlton try to concentrate on their schoolwork while surrounded by the noisy late-night distractions of the Banks family.

Carlton ends up irritating Will by revealing that the assignment he was working on was purely optional whereas Will's test will be mandatory.


  • In the kitchen after Will says, "check please", if you notice, there's a boom mic visible.


  • When Carlton's laptop gets unplugged, he shouldn't have lost all his information because the battery would have prevented the computer from shutting down.
  • When Carlton is at the kitchen table working on his paper with Will, he opens a bag of chips and takes a bite. The loud crunch bugs Will, but the echo of the chip crunch is audible, so it was obviously a special effect.


Vivian: You can't stop little girls from growing up.
Philip: I can and I will!
[Carlton is tapping his fingers on the table & Will stares at him]
Carlton: Sorry, bad habit. [opens a bag of chips and chews loudly, Will takes the bag and hits Carlton on the head]
Will: Sorry, bad habit!
Ashley (to Will & Carlton): Why are you guys still up? You're making it really hard for me to sneak in.
Will: Ashley, you know full well if you wanna sneak past Uncle Phil, you don't go through the kitchen.
Philip: This will take care of that cricket.
Geoffrey: Sir, that's air-freshener.
Philip: Well, it's all we have. It might work.
Geoffrey: Yes. Perhaps the scent of sea breeze will recall some painful memory for him and then he'll commit suicide.
Phil: If Ashley tried something like that, I'd throttle her.
Will: Wait a minute. Throttling isn't anything like killing, is it?
Hilary: (coming downstairs reading the dictionary) Not exactly. The second definition of throttle is to strangle: choke. Killing is a result of throttling.
[Philip goes upstairs]
Carlton: Either way I think we're about to see a demonstration.
Will: Ding dong, the cricket's dead, Ashley's grounded, now y'all go to bed.
