Before I write anything, I’d like for people to watch this scene from a TV show called The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It’s a small 1m 41s clip (In case, if anyone comes back to this article in the future and the video gets taken down on YouTube, it’s from Episode 2 of Season 2).

Some background to this scene. Uncle Phil (the tall, heavily built, bald man) is one of the main characters of the show. He is a lawyer. Uncle Phil’s daughter Ashley gets bullied at school by the daughter of a psychiatrist. But the psychiatrist’s daughter lies to her parents that it’s Ashley doing the bullying and she falsely acts innocent.

So, Uncle Phil and his wife Vivian, and the psychiatrist and his wife, confront each other to talk about their kids.

Even though the show is a generally a comedy, this scene actually throws some very good light on what the reality of psychiatric labels are. Unfortunately, in real life, you mostly cannot do to psychiatric labellers what Uncle Phil did there at the end, no matter how much grief they cause you.” – Source
