Air Date 10/22/2018
Characters Introduced
Himself Will Smith

Season 1

Episode 1

“Because I did not understand marriage, I did not understand divorce.”

“Expectations will steal the gifts that are sitting right there in front of you.”

Episode 2

Self-Harm makes the pain more tangible, it’s actually visible, something you can see and put your finger on and it becomes real.

Pain motivates you, pain is a motivating factor for you to make a change in your life to do something different.

What I need to keep doing is training my heart and my mind to accept and move with loss.

Episode 4

Gabrielle Union speaking to Jada Pinkett-Smith.

That’s where you were then, thank god you someplace else now.
— “EP 4: Girls Trippin’” Red Table Talk (Jada)

It’s hard, it’s painful, to recognize you are the common denominator for the vast majority of your problems.
— “EP 4: Girls Trippin’” Red Table Talk (Gabrielle)

You have to mourn that death of who you thought you were.
— “EP 4: Girls Trippin’” Red Table Talk (Gabrielle)

Being a victim is also comfortable for everybody else. Because when you take accountability for yourself and your own healing, a lot of people lose a bit of control. It’s easier to control a victim than it is to control a healed, evolved person.
— “EP 4: Girls Trippin’” Red Table Talk (Gabrielle)

I say no! And no used to be so terrifying because no means a boundary and if you put up a boundary, maybe people won’t comeback.
— “EP 4: Girls Trippin’” Red Table Talk (Gabrielle)

Episode 6

[…] the stuff of life is meant to be lived, not analyzed.

Episode 7

What is normal for you, in your natural state, do that.

Episode 9

Cesar Millan's name in the Red Table Talk style.

Poverty makes you strong.

Episode 10

“Sometimes it does take that. It takes something outside of us to give us that hope, to give us, ‘Okay, I wanna reach for that’ You know what I’m saying? In order to get the strength, because guess what? If we had it for ourselves, we wouldn’t even be there!”- Jada

“[…] if someone else can love you that much that it hurts them, why doesn’t it bother you that you’re actually hurting yourself?” – August Alsina

“It’s not what you’re doing, but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it is my thing. […] It’s the behavior that’s attached to it.” – Jada

Episode 11

I have a thing, I recognize when I see a person, if our relationship can be exponential.
— Will Smith

Episode 12

‘Cause what happened was, our characters were trying to have a relationship, and if you’re going to wear a mask, then the person’s trying to love your mask, right? They’re trying to love the image that you’re presenting, but that’s not what you really need.
— Will

My brokenness created all my discomfort.
— Jada

I used to think that if you don’t need somebody then you can’t love them. […] And if you’re not needed, then you’re not loved. That was a false belief I had.
— Jada

We expect people to love us more than we love ourselves. We expect people to do the work for us.
— Jada

I have to be the thing that I’m asking for and if I can be it, then I can create it.
— Jada

Expectations are the mother of disappointment.
— Will

When people say “love,” they mean it transactionally, right? I love you as long as you do things that make me feel good. If you don’t do the things that make me feel good, or if you, even worse, do something that makes me feel bad, I don’t love you. […] I’m going to disconnect.
— Will

Episode 13

I don’t actually like that [aggressive] side of me. I like the intention behind it, but I don’t like the way I’m coming at it, like a fighter.
— Leah

My therapist, she said, “You’re missing something. You just need to find out what you’re missing.” Just in those moments, just ask yourself or ask the person that’s saying these things or antagonizing you, “I’m sorry, what are we missing here? What do you think I don’t understand?”
— Leah

Episode 14

Prejudice is the emotional commitment to ignorance.
— Adrienne

Put “should-ing” on a shelf. It doesn’t matter what you should do, what matters is what are you going to do?
— Jane Elliot

“In this country, what we call education is actually indoctrination.”
— Jane Elliott

The change was already happening in my mind, but now I’ve gotta change it in how I live.
— Adrienne

About Amari Sali 3353 Articles
New Jersey native Amari Sali takes the approach of more so being a media advisor than a critic to sort of fill in the gap left between casual fans of media and those who review productions for a living. Thus being open about bias while still giving enough insight, often with spoilers, to present whether something is worth seeing, buying, renting, streaming, or checking out at all.
