* The episode "Not With my Pig you Don't," Grandma' Banks comes to visit, and regales stories a out [[EmbarrasingName Zeke's (Philip's)]] youth, much to the joy of Will. When Will overhears a reporter calling her editor that she's going to cancel the story she was going to write on the Banks' family, Will tells her the stories Grandma' told him. The next day, Philip is furious with Will for telling the reporter [[OldShame what he considers embarrassing stories, such as the time he ran into a "whites only" bathroom when he wanted to go, and how his pet pig, "Wilbur," helped him become the first non-white winner of the youth farmer ribbon at the county fair.]] Grandma' then becomes angry at Philip for disavowing his past, and shuns him for most of the episode. At Philip's honor banquet, he tells everybody that although he did spend part of his life in Harlem, he proudly admits that he grew up in a farm in North Carolina, and Grandma' joyfully hopes he'll talk about his pet pig.

* In the Season 5 opener, Will gets Ashley a career in music. Phill and Vivian are stunned, and are not happy. When Ashley gets nervous however, Will and Carlton both dance to the song to give her confidence and Ashley very rapidly does a stellar performance. It very rapidly goes into funny territory when Uncle Phil and Aunt Vivian, having heard it see what is happening, and after a few seconds, storms onto the stage to get after Carlton and Will, he is briefly forced to dance for a few seconds, before resuming the chase, until Vivian grabs Carlton. When the song is over, Will embraces Ashley and she gets a standing ovation.

-->'''Uncle Phil:''' You don't know my first memory of you. I remember, the kid loaded with all the potential in the world. Now I see someone on the verge of realizing that potential
*** [[spoiler:Will]] joining Carlton in dancing and singing to "It's Not Unusual" by Music/TomJones. This is especially heartwarming, since he was shunned for the song, and that in the end of the show's run, [[spoiler:Will]] joins in.
*** On that note, here's a meta-example: This surprise [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwS14TiO7Pk#t=89 reunion]] of Will, Jazz and Carlton, which also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. ''(In case the link doesn't work properly, skip to 1:38 for pure awesomeness.)''

* After Hilary is asked to pose for {{Playboy}}, Phil flips out, of course. But by episode's end, he finally calms down and acknowledges, "You're not a little girl anymore. You're a beautiful woman. Beautiful enough for {{Playboy}} to ask, and woman enough to accept."
