* BestServedCold: Normally, Philip would yell or threaten Will the instant he does something insanely wrong. But in one case Will did something so bad, that it took three years for Phil to think up the ultimate punishment for Will. Will really had it coming, too -- he wanted to sleep with a girl who wouldn't give it up before marriage, so he staged a fake wedding with Jazz playing the preacher, just to get her into bed. He came to his senses at the last second, but ''damn.''

* BigBrotherInstinct: He's very protective of Ashley, although he's more like "Big Cousin Instinct". When Ashley is a teenager in later seasons, she doesn't always appreciate this.



* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: To Carlton, quite a few of the episodes revolve around Will trying to break him out of his ManChild behavior. Ironically Carlton ''thinks'' he's this to Will. In reality, it's actually the opposite.



* DumbassTeenageSon: One of the rare cases when a teenage son is this trope without being lazy or BookDumb. But he's still childish and has no common sense, usually acting as a foil for Will and even his father Phil at times, who tells him to "Shut up" every now and then.



* OvershadowedByAwesome: How often he feels about Will.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Is he senile? Yes. Is he still a brutally shrewd politician? Hell yes!
--> '''Robertson''': Oh wake up, knucklehead. You're in the big leagues now. I may be old, I may be senile, and I haven't been able to find my car for the past half hour, but I can beat you in a political campaign any day. You're dead meat, Tiny.

-->'''Phil''': ''(yelling at Lou)'' Oh bull, ''bull''! Will is not a coat that you hang in the closet, then pick it up when you're ready to wear it. His life goes on. He's not supposed to be here for you, you're supposed to be here for ''him''!

Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: Unlike other characters on the show, his actions aren't played for laugh and the episode he appears in is one of, if not the darkest moment in the series. The lone episode he appears in begins lighthearted, but ends with Lou walking out on a heartbroken Will again and Will promising to make it without his father while breaking down crying. A sad and sympathetic Uncle Phil gives Will a CoolDownHug. The studio audience is completely silent during this final scene.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: If he starts laughing after a really bad prank or screwup of Will's, that's usually a good sign to run for your life.
