* In "Courting Disaster" Will is coaxed into joining the basketball team. In the first game, Will singlehandedly annihilates the opposing team and Uncle Phil couldn't be prouder of him and it starts bringing them closer together. This was probably the earliest true bonding moment between them

** Another one from that same episode was Will (correctly) guesses Uncle Phil doesn't want to go on Soul Train because he's insecure about his dancing abilities. Rather than make fun of him, Will brings a friend of his over to help Uncle Phil.

* A very underrated moment was in Season 1 when Will gets a new girlfriend who's a lonely intellectual in college. When Will learns that his relationship with her is damaging her grades and could get her kicked out of school, Will, under Aunt Viv's advice tells her they need to send some time apart which upsets her. Back at the dorm room, Aunt Viv, who is the girl's professor, tells her that she told Will to do that. The two then have a heart to heart conversation discovering they both had similar upbringings and Aunt Viv tells her that she needs to understand that even if she doesn't fit in and she's the last hope for her family, she does deserve to be where she is and she needs to believe that otherwise nothing anyone tells her will help.

She then realizes it's better for Will and her to spend less time together.

* When the bickering Will and Lisa go to pre-marital counseling, the counselor gives them foam bats to work out their aggression. For that day's session, they are joined by [[Series/TheJeffersons George & Louise Jefferson]], (at this point, it becomes obvious the episode is intended as an {{Homage}} to the "foam bat" episode from the previous series). Despite all their previous arguing, Will and Lisa are instantly ticked off when George and Louise make insulting comments about their respective partners and engage in an all-out brawl. By the episode's end, they realize that they have what it take to make a marriage work if they can stick together despite previous animosity.

'''Vivian:''' Geoffrey. Nobody loves Nicky more than you do... Would you do us the honour of being Nicky's godfather?
'''Geoffrey:''' Oh, Madame, I don't know what to say! This is the best Christmas gift I could ever get!

* "'Twas the Night Before Christening" has Vivian ask Geoffrey, on Christmas, if he'll be Nicky's godfather. His face positively lights up.
'''Vivian:''' Geoffrey. Nobody loves Nicky more than you do... Would you do us the honour of being Nicky's godfather?
'''Geoffrey:''' Oh, Madame, I don't know what to say! This is the best Christmas gift I could ever get!
** And then later, as Will walks in, Geoffrey proudly announces, toothy smile and all, "Master William, I'm Nicky's godfather!"

* A lot of the interaction between Will and Carlton in "Blood is Thicker Than Mud," shows just how close they've gotten over the years. The pair are trying to get into an all-black fraternity and are putting up with typical hazing as pledges. The frat's head takes an instant disliking to Carlton for "not being black enough" and makes his hazing much harder than all other recruits, with the intention of never letting him in. When Will sees Carlton put up with all of it without complaining he starts by saying whether they get in or not he's proud of him (though he does get comically annoyed when Carlton tries to hug him afterward). Later when the frat leader tells Carlton just what he thinks of him, Will is about to rush to his defense, only for Carlton to stop him and say, in an understanding and appreciative voice, "I got this." After Carlton storms out, Will immediately follows his example, even quoting one of his cousin's corny jokes as he does so. It just displays the mutual love and understanding the pair have formed for each other by this point.

* A subtle moment in "To Thine Own Self Be Blue...And Gold" Will discovers his new boss (and Uncle Phil's friend from Princeton) wants him to deliver a bribe to a councilman so he can set up his new office. Will takes the suitcase and goes home to tell Phil. When Phil comes home and Will tells him he wants to quit. Phil gets mad at him for betraying one of the few friends he has and asks why he wants to quit. Will goes from wanting to tell Phil about the bribe to saying "I'd rather not say" so Phil wouldn't know his friend was a sleazy businessman. Plain and simple he'd rather have [[HairTriggerTemper Uncle Phil]] be mad at him than have Uncle Phil lose one of his close friends.
