There's just no way Josie could be a thief, or could there be? It's a battle of truth vs rumour, as it becomes intolerable for Josie and Corrine to share the same living space. Meanwhile, the sponge in the aquarium is multiplying and covering the school. Lucas, Marshall, and Professor Z have to get to work before the sponges cover the entire planet...moreless

  • Typical rumours spread that arn't true classic

    This episode is a very good one. For many reasons. I like how this episode has to do with the friendship between Josie & Corrine. It also shows how mean Madison can be by spreading rumours. Also her mad flirting skills. I was surprised how Marshall &`Lucas considered Josie was stealing. All in all i love this episode
  • "Ecosystem" Josie is accused of being a stealer. The whole thing was accidently started by Corrine. With all of there arguing the science lab sponges rapidly multiply. So in the end they must find out a way to comunicate before the sponges eat covmoreless

    This is one of the best episode of this series. It's funny and well writen. I mean you have the Josie and Corrine thing and the sponge thing, but they connect and that leads to them trying to figure out what is going on. The boys (Lucas, Marshall, Professor Z) don't realize it's Josie and Corrine who made the sponges multiply so they play a really annoying sound. It's a pop boy band song and then the sponges start to disappear. So they start to sing to the sponges. When the sponges are almost all gone the girls find the 3 singing and dancing. The boys realize that the danced and sang like fools for nothing. But, they continue anyway. This was so HILARIOUS!!

    This is a great episode and everyone should see it.

  • As rumors about Josie spread around the school, so do the sponges that resided in the aquarium of the science lab.

    This episode is te first that really brings out and shows Corrine's and Josie's room-mate differences. They get into a little fight about these differences, and all of a sudden people are saying stuff about Josie, like how she stole stuff from Corrine. And as the rumor as well as the fight gets worse, Pr. Z and Lucas and Marshall are having trouble with spreading sponges around the school. They do everything they can but nothing works. But just as Josie and Corrine are making up upstairs, Pr. Z's gang turns the radio on to badd music, and the sponges start to disappear. Josie and Corrine realize that it's their making up that is causing the sponges to disappear, while Pr. Z, Marshall, and Lucas, think it's the bad music - so thet end up singing with all their might to the sponges. When Corrine and Josie come into the room to tell them what they did to make the spones go away, they surprize the singers, who after realizing they have embarrased themselves infront of the whole school, continue singing to make the best and BY FAR funniest ending in the whole series. It had me rolling on the floor, and for that I just added .4 points to my rating.moreless
