BBD meets Fresh Prince

This episode is tight as hell! Bell Biv Devoe is one best music groups of all time. I also liked that they got Nicholle Tom(Beethoven 1&2 and The Nanny)to play one of Ashley's friends from her Girl Scout troop. It was hilarious the way they kept being interrupted every time they tried shooting the video. But what really got me going was when Will and Ty were dancing in the shoot, the director got ticked off and Ty said "I was trying to be in the video." Then when Philip and Vivian decide to come home early, they have to stop the shoot and put the furniture back in the house before they get back. When the furniture is moved inside it ends up being damp from the rain. Will orders them to start painting, but Ashley objects saying "I'm not painting." "I didn't have anything to do with this." Then when Will refreshes her memory by stating "I seem to recall a Girl Scout trying to get her "Car Theft" badge." She changes her mind and decides to help anyway. When Philip and Vivian return to the house, Philip tells them how proud he is of them being responsible during their absence. Then when he goes upstairs, they notice paint on the back of his suit and they decide to run away to avoid punishment. Absolutely LOVED it and Thumbs up to Bell Biv Devoe for their appearance.
