Summary Edit

Will and Carlton lose their shirts investing on an insider trading tip and take jobs as strippers to recoup their losses and get Vivian's bracelet back.

Plot Edit

Will, Carlton and Geoffrey invest on an insider trading tip towards a stock with Carlton and Will pawning off Vivian's diamond bracelet to pay for their stock. However, the company files for bankruptcy and all three lose their money. To recoup their losses, they first try donating blood before settling on a stripper job worth $500 a night. Will's first gig happens to be at the same club Hilary and Vivian to get Hilary into a group that Phillip wants her socializing with. Will freezes up, causing Carlton to go through with the stripping until Vivian stops him.

Will and Carlton are punished for their behavior and ordered by Uncle Phil to get the bracelet back. At the pawn shop, Agnes is about to sell the bracelet to another customer for $550. Playing on the crush Agnes has on Carlton, he plans to have Carlton strip to get the bracelet.


  • Carlton: Will! Shake something, damn it! Will, you get back out here.

  • (at the Gingham Turtle restaurant, where Carlton is performing a striptease)
  • Carlton: Oooohhh!
  • Woman: Take it off!
  • Vivian: Put it on! (Carlton sees his mother, Vivian and shocked) Carlton Banks, you put your clothes on this minute!
  • Carlton: (Gasps) Mommy?!
  • (he covers his chest with his hands)

  • Agnes: What you got?
  • [Pop music plays]
  • Carlton: Oh, no.
  • Will: Work it, Honey.

  • Phil: What do you boys think I should do?
  • Will: I dunno, reward us for our honesty?
  • [Phil, Will, and Carlton continue to laugh]
  • Will: Hey, hey, it worked for the Beav.
  • Phil: The Beav! [all laugh, then Phil yells] DO I LOOK LIKE A WHITE GUY NAMED WARD?! Now you get that bracelet back, and for the next 6 weeks, I don't want to hear you breathe, or I'm calling the Feds myself! [leaves]
  • Will: [to Carlton] I guess this probably ain't the best time to tell him we ran over the mailbox.
