Plot Edit

While fixing up the riot-torn remains of the Banks former LA neighborhood, Carlton falls for another worker named Simone while Will befriends a teenager named Noah. Noah becomes angered with Will when he refuses to blow off plans to come back and help next weekend, seeing him as every other person who only helps to pat themselves on the back for doing a good cause. Uncle Phil and Aunt Vivian run into an old friend named Hector and begin to reminiscence on the night they got the call that would set their family's fortunes and how Phillip swore that money would never change who they are. Motivated by the memories, Will and Ashley agree to return next week to help. Phillip is disappointed that he became everything he swore not to be upon making it big. Vivian reveals to him that she is pregnant and that is why she is acting strange, causing him to faint.


  • Hector mistakes Uncle Phil for actor Reginald VelJohnson, who portrayed Carl Winslow in the ABC sitcom Family Matters. Both characters are alike in the sense they are both involved in law enforcement, are strict but loving fathers, lose their tempers quickly and are usually annoyed with the antics of troublemakers close to them (Will and Urkel.)
