At first glance and introduction, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air's Hilary Banks might not seem like one to dole out epic advice and catchphrases. When she first stormed on the scene in the series, she barely acknowledged her cousin Will's presence, and instead badgered her father for $300 to purchase a hat. Despite this introduction, Hilary turned out to be one of the most intriguing characters on the Fresh Prince — not to mention one of the most influential. She was simply a woman before her time. Like many millennials today, Hilary struggled to find her niche in the working world until she snagged her dream gig as a talk show host for her very own show. Hilary's love for fashion and lavish extravagances may seem superficial to some, but Hilary was never afraid to be herself — and for that reason alone, she should be commended.
Though she led a cushy life for the most part, Hilary didn't always have it easy. She had to figure things out by herself when her fiance Trevor was killed during a tragic bungee jumping accident, and she ended up learning a great deal about life from her cousin Will. Hilary's sensational fashion choices and her outlandish quips make her an iconic television character — so, if you're a diehard Fresh Prince fan, you'll probably be able to fill in her sentences.
