Episode Summary

Dollars and No Sense
Freddie decides to override Sofia's judgment by buying Zoey an expensive phone that she wants. When they are caught, Freddie and Chris are supposed to take Zoey to a soup kitchen to teach her a lesson, but instead decide to take her to an auction that they'd been planning on going to. The real lesson is learned when Zoey makes Freddie bid a ridiculous amount of money on an item she wants, and Freddie makes her work it off at the restaurant, finally teaching her the value of a dollar.moreless

  • Both Freddie and Zoey learn the value of a dollar through Muhammad Ali and Ron Weasley!

    This episode was really funny, I always enjoy the writing on this show, and Chris' character is really growing on me, he is becoming funnier by the episode. One thing I noticed about Freddie, he has excellent line delivery; he can say the simplest of sentences and make you chuckle! I love watching him because he brings such personality to the character. Overall, this show has alot of potential.
