Will Gets a Job is the third episode of the second season from the television sitcom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which was originally aired from NBC on September 23, 1991. It was directed by Ellen Falcon and written by Andy Borowitz.
Phillip calls Will "Carlton" accidentally several times and offers to pay for Will's Homecoming dance expenses, causing Will to become paranoid that he is becoming exactly like Carlton and totally living off of Uncle Phil. Will begins to slack in school and his extracurricular activities. However, Uncle Phil believes that Will is lying about having a job and grounds him excessively.
Will decides to secretly get a job at a pirate-themed restaurant. Due to his costume, Uncle Phil originally doesn't recognize him and Will tries to get away with some insults in anger for Uncle Phil not believing him. In the end they make up once Uncle Phil realizes why Will wanted to get a job and Will realizes it is okay to get help to succeed.
Meanwhile, Ashley's friend Tina develops a crush on Carlton after seeing him shirtless after he had finished swimming. Though at first flattered by the crush, he soon becomes annoyed with Tina's obsessive behavior that doesn't stop even when Carlton tells her they can never date because of her being a child. At the restaurant, Tina soon projects her crush onto Will, causing Carlton to become jealous despite how annoyed he was previously.
