Will and Carlton start college with this season, and notice many drastic life changes along the way.
Daphne Maxwell Reid assumes the role of Vivian Banks from the episode forward, replacing the fired Janet Hubert-Whitten. At the beginning of the episode, Jazz comments to Vivian that ever since she gave birth to baby Nicky, she looks different. Not only does Reid look drastically different from Hubert-Whitten, her acting style is different, and it seems as though Vivian would never be the same again.
We are introduced to Tyra Banks as Jackie, a friend of Will's from his Philly days.
This episode, along with every other Season 4 episode, was released on DVD on August 8, 2006.
(Giving Vivian a weird look, looking her up and down)
Jazz: Gee, Miss Banks, ever since you had that baby, there's something different about you...
(Vivian chuckles as Will gives the camera a look)
Vivian: (to Philip) It can't have been that long since we've made love...
Geoffrey: Five months now (Philip and Vivian stare at him) Thin walls...
The joke Jazz makes about Vivian looking different since she gave birth to baby Nicky isn't exactly correct. Vivian gave birth in the episode "The Baby Comes Out" but appears again briefly in "The Way We Were", with Janet Hubert still in role, so if you get technical, this is not the first time Vivian has been seen since she had the baby.
