  • This really wasn't a great episode. It was o.k. but not really a favorite of mine and it was actually kind of boring.

    • Arwin: (finishes fixing it) Done!
      Cody: A minute, ten seconds
      Arwin: DAH! I'll never beat Irv. I'm such a loser. (starts hitting his head) LOSER! LOSER! LOSER!

    • Mr Moseby: London, you're going to have to pay for it yourself.
      London: Fine! I'll use the ten dollars grandma gave me for my birthday.
      Mr Moseby: London, ten dollars isn't enough to open up a store.
      London: I know, but the ten dollars was wrapped around a diamond the size of a potato. I'll use my potato diamond to open up my business.

    • Maddie: Mr Moseby, I'll make this quick. I'd like a raise.
      Mr Moseby: I'll make it quicker, NO!
      Maddie: But can't we at least talk about it?
      Mr Moseby: We just did!

    • Zack: That was amazing! How did you hit ten feetthrows in a row?
      Cody: New system. I realized, if I picture myself in a happy place, all the pressure goes away.

    • (fat lady picking up a dress) London: Oh this is Not for you! Fat Lady: Excuse me?! London: See, those dresses are made for women with an hourglass figure. You're shaped like a pumpkin. (London turning around to the other lady in the store) London: And you're more like a butternut squash. (The two women leave after being insulted and Maddie goes after them to apologies for London's behavior) Maddie: I happen to love butternut squash. I love all the winter vegetables.

    Trivia (15)

    • During the scene where Irv sneaks into the toilets and puts or draws a cheat sheet on how to put the auto-flusher back together, why didn't he just keep it with him and go into the toilets during the competition with it. How could he have been so sure that he would get that toilet.

    • After Arwin fixes the elevator, when he gets in, it is very easy to see that the elevator he gets in is on the lobby.

    • Before Irv arrives at the elevator, Zack and Cody hide behind the plants, but when he arrives they are clearly not visible at all.

    • It would be easier for Zack and Cody just to get rid of the toilet paper that Irv put instructions on, so he can't cheat, instead of showing the toilet paper to the judges, and even if they had it on it, there was no evidence that Irv would have used it.

    • A part of this episode is in the opening credits (of Season 3): when Zack and Cody pop up from the bathroom stall.

    Allusions (7)

    • Arwin< strong>: Rats, number two again. Arwin is talking about coming in second place when he says it, but this is a joke referring to the common usage of "number 1" as liquid waste and "number 2" as solid waste, as they are in the bathroom when Arwin says it.

    • The way that Arwin and Irv greet each other, is an allusion to the way Seinfeld and Newman would greet each on the the show "Seinfeld".

    • During the race, one fan holds up a sign that says "Arwin's Army". This is possibly a reference to the secret society made by Harry and the gang in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, "Dumbledore's Army", or the DA.

    • During the hotel engineer's game, when Arwin loses the air conditioning repair contest to Irv Wheldon, Arwin's comments about the Cunningham 200 on/off switch and the Fonzarelli 22 are references to the 1970's TV series, "Happy Days," which was about life in the 1950s with the Cunningham family and their cool friend, Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli.

    • Cody: Think of a happy place. This is what Happy Gilmore does when he is in golf tournaments in the 1996 movie, "Happy Gilmore" starring Adam Sandler.
