* In "The Alma Matters" Will and Carlton are both interviewed by a Princeton official scouting for interested applicants, and so naturally Carlton has prepared for his make-or-break case for acceptance. Will's record does little to impress the man until he starts playing it cool with his usual antics, which greatly amuses the representative and earns Will a conditional acceptance, much to Carlton's shock. Not believing it, he springs the same act upon the man, who is convinced that Carlton is crazy and turns him down flat. Carlton panics and tries to convince him otherwise, and when this fails, he actually threatens the man on an impulse and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone catches his mistake too late]]. Getting himself suspended, Carlton tries to pretend nothing is wrong and lies to everybody that he's been accepted with a full scholarship, much to the joy of everybody, especially Uncle Phil. And then they receive a call from school:
-->'''Uncle Phil''': Hey I just heard the good news! What? Well how can he be suspended? He just got a full scholarship! (...) I'll, uh....I'll call you back.
-->'''Vivian''': Philip?
-->'''Uncle Phil''': Carlton.....Tell me you didn't threaten to kill the man from Princeton.
-->'''Vivian''': Oh, my God!
-->'''Carlton''': [[MyGreatestFailure I can't]].
** Carlton eventually makes peace with his father over the incident, but the pain and disappointment in Carlton's face as he sees how badly he hurt his family as well as himself is very raw, knowing he just blew his lifelong goal of attending Princeton as his father did. And at the time, it certainly looked like he would never be granted a second chance...

* The episode "It's a Wonderful Lie" in Season 5 has a lot of conflict in it, with the focus characters of the episode struggling with trust. Ashley in particular lies to her parents, is discovered at a party full of college boys and runs away from home for a short time. When she faces up to her parents about it at the end of the episode, Phil gets too angry to lecture her properly and leaves Vivian to talk to Ashley about it. It's one of the few times that Daphne Maxwell Reid gets an intense scene as Vivian, and she nails it. Ashley clearly realises during the discussion how much she betrayed and hurt them, but Vivian remains cold and distant while gently and logically reprimanding her about how fragile trust can be. You can see and hear how much Vivian doesn't like speaking to her daughter like this and it's very clear that Ashley regrets what she did, so right before Ashley leaves as she's sent to her room, Vivian calls to her with a shaking voice. She walks over to Ashley and the two of them embrace as Ashley breaks down crying and apologises.

** Also worthy of note is what was perhaps the worst argument between Will and his uncle, when Will says that he has accepted his father's offer to take the trip, which Phil furiously objects to, knowing that Lou would betray him again. The fight escalates and Will finally shuts him down by screaming that he isn't his father, which leaves Phil at a complete loss for words. We see him spending the next day wondering if he's been a good father to his kids. It's truly upsetting to see Uncle Phil of all people so lost on what the right thing to do is, when it's clear he only wants to protect Will. Thankfully the two of them quickly make up and Phil gives Will his best wishes as he prepares to set out with his Dad, which only makes Lou's inevitable betrayal later hit home that much harder, as does Phil stepping in to comfort Will when Lou leaves.
