* Phil and Vivian once appeared on an episode of ''Series/SoulTrain'' when they were younger. The scramble was supposed to read "Music/JamesBrown". Phil made it read: "Vivian, I love you and I always will. Marry Me?"

* In "Bullets Over Bel Air", Everyone reacts their own way when it comes to Will getting shot. Props go especially to Hilary, while her demands at the hospital seem to be her snotty self on the surface. Inside, she just wanted to help her cousin out anyway she can. Especially since for once it's not for her, it's for Will.

* Also from the finale: In the first part, Geoffrey suggests to Phil that it would be a wonderful gesture to give him a first-class one-way ticket to London on the Concorde in lieu of his spring bonus. Phil, known for his thriftiness, tries to wager it down. Then, at the end, Phil presents Geoffrey with a first-class ticket to London.

** In the first half of the finale, Jazz comes by the house after Phil's birthday and gives him a present. This is incredibly heart warming, until [[MoodWhiplash Jazz tells him the present is false teeth.]]

** Hugh Hefner has one at the end. Phil in a bit of an UpToEleven moment of crazyness over the matter decides to join a monastery till the Playboy thing blows over. Will visits him and gives him the Magazine telling him he has to see it. Phil reacts [[{{squick}} squicky]] at first, but opens it anyway and finds out to his glee that they covered up anything on Hilary that would be revealing. Meaning that Hugh took Phil's feelings to heart after meeting him.

** Also, when Uncle Phil learns Geoffrey quit because of Carlton and Will's prank, he spares no hesitation in letting Geoffrey come back despite all Geoffrey did after he thought he won and is understandably more mad at Will and Carlton than Geoffrey. Even though Phil can be stern this shows he's not unreasonable.
* In "Home Is Where The Heart Attack Is." Will feels guilty about his role in Phil's heart attack. When he confesses to the family (sans Carlton who's at home in denial), they berate him for nearly getting his uncle killed, making him even more guilty. He goes to apologize to Phil, but Phil hears none of it, taking the blame all to himself from years of not taking care of himself. When he asks where Carlton is, since he was the only one that didn't show up in the hospital; a now absolved Will goes home to check leading to the [[TearJerker/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Tear Jerker]] moment.

* 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.

* 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.

* The episode "Not With my Pig you Don't," Grandma Banks comes to visit, and regales stories a out [[EmbarrassingFirstName 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,]] [[PottyEmergency such as the time he ran into a "whites only" bathroom when he wanted to go,]] and how [[DownOnTheFarm 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.

* One time Will begins to fear that he won't be able to get his life together, Uncle Phil chimes in his opinion about Will, admitting while Will does give him the most grief out of all the kids under his roof, he also said that he is also the one that he never worries about.
