The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Granny Gets Busy is the 5th episode of Season 2 of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.


Mortified over spying his mother kiss the handyman, Philip can't bear to think of her having a new man in her life.


Phillip acts angrily to the news as he is scared that he will lose his mother after having lost his father the previous year. She assures Phillip that she is always going to be there for him, even with a new man in her life.

Meanwhile, Will and Carlton place a bet against Hilary and Ashley that they cannot do an opposite-gender job better: Will and Carlton must design a dress while Hilary and Ashley must put Will's exercise bike together with the loser having to help Geoffrey in the kitchen. In the end, both parties surprise the other with their successes.
