I’m not always going to talk to you first.
If you want to talk to me, then you would take some of your time to actually make an effort to talk to me. I don’t want you to come talk to me, when you have nobody else to talk to or if you’re bored. I want somebody worth talking to, someone that will keep up a good conversation. I dont want a boring conversation with one worded replies.

A little backstory to this clip before you watch it:
Will Smith’s father abandoned him and his mother when he was a child, and when Will was finally getting into show business and making a name for himself, he tried to snake his way back into his life like nothing happened. Will co-wrote this episode, and James Avery (Uncle Phil) said “this scene was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to shoot in my life. Every emotion, every word.. that was Will”
Will was actually supposed to play it off and then walk away, and there was originally an alternate scene that was supposed to happen, but he actually completely cut out what was supposed to be said, and did all of his own dialogue. The hug at the end of this scene is completely genuine, and this was a stepping stone in Will’s career where he started to take on the “do what feels, sounds, and looks right” approach to his acting.
It’s hard to wait around for something you know might never happen, it’s even harder to give up when you know it’s everything you’ve wanted.
I’ve done my part, so now it’s time to do yours.
