Everything I Know About Girls, I Learned From The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

One of the main highlights of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is how much of a sweet talker Will Smith is. His pick up lines are one of a kind and that of which every guy should use. In essence, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is not just a sitcom but an educational show on women. Yes, it took 148 episodes to get a better understanding of the complexity of women. And we barely made a dent…

Will’s pick-up lines were probably the most helpful aspect of impressing a lady. How could a woman resist a man that says, ” Girl, you look so good I wish I could plant you and grow a whole field of ya’ll!”? I would instantly fall in love with the person who said that to me. Some other classic pick up lines are “I believe I saw your picture somewhere. That’s right! It was in the dictionary next to ‘Kablaaaaam’!” and “Jean Claude Van DAM you look good!”. I have tried using these in real life and they always end up with the girl cracking up. I guess that’s better than getting clocked in the face. So yes men, it works. Will also knows how to treat a lady after the initial contact with the pick up line. Will is always dressing up and taking his “honnies” on dinner dates. What a stud! He is constantly complementing their beauty and always seems to know exactly what to say in every situation.

Then there is Carlton. He teaches us how not to act around a woman. His “pick up lines” are no where near the level of Will’s. He also seems to get even nerdier whenever he is around a girl. He tries to impress them by using big words and talking about subjects not many people care for. An example of his lack of knowledge about women comes up when he goes up to a cheerleader and says, “Hi. I’m Carlton Banks. The Carlton Banks.” This may get a good laugh out of the girl but for the wrong reasons. You want the woman laughing with you, not at you.

Yet another reason The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air should be watched by all. It is an educational program.

  1. Haha, I would most definitely be flattered if a guy came up to me and said he wanted to plant a whole field of me…Will Smith is definitely quite the ladies man, even since The Fresh Prince, the various roles he has played in movies have always been flirtatious.

  2. Will Smith’s delivery on the Fresh Prince of Bell Air was near-impeccable. And his relationship with Carlton is my favorite relationship depicted on the show. Carlton obviously needs Will in social situations but Carlton in turn challenges Will in academic settings. Despite Carlton’s need for new pick-up lines, I will always affirm my love for his wonderful dance routine to the tune of Tom Jones’ song “It’s Not Unusual”; what an unforgettable dance!

  3. This is hilarious and so true! The pick-up lines are all ridiculous and so funny, and when said by Will Smith, they become so believable and girls love them. Plus, the pick-up lines make the show all the more funny.

  4. After reading your script during your work shopping day, I have to say, you really nailed the Will Smith smooth talking dialogue. You even channeled Jazz’s pick-up lines perfectly. Who knew “Fresh Prince” was smooth talking education tool?

    Although you make many good points about it being helpful for pick up lines, they may be a little dated. I’m not sure how much longer the “Jean Claude Van DAM you look good!” will work. It’s too bad Will Smith doesn’t use any of these great pick up lines in his movies anymore though. “Hancock” could have used some help from the Fresh Prince.

  6. Even though a lot his pickup lines were ridiculous, Will was quite the charmer. It wasn’t hard to crush on the Fresh Prince growing up.

  7. Pick up lines are so hilarious. I hope that everything you know about girls didn’t come from this show! His pick up lines are so ridiculous. I got a good laugh from this post!
