  • Raven Baxter goes to the Tipton hotel and winds up meeting Zack and Cody.

    I am not a fan of That's So Raven, but this episode was pretty good. The plot wasn't that interesting, but I kind of enjoyed it. But when I watch it later on, I realize it wasn't so good. There were a lot of lame jokes and the sub plot was just plain stupid. I also didn't like Zack and Cody's "humorous" parts. All in all there were some ups and some downs of this episode. It was an avergae episode which is why I rated it a 5.2. It was a pretty good episode. It wasn't the best storyline, but it was aN okay episode.moreless
  • Raven checks in to the Tipton, as Tiffany's replacement for Donna Cabonna.

    I liked the "That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana" event, and I thought it was great to see three new episodes of three of my favorite shows in one.

    Checkin' Out

    Dylan and Cole Sprouse guest star. So hilarious, how Raven didn't know how to work a SECKRETECK (I think I spelled that wrong). And I loved the Stanley versus Chelsea battle, but I'd want to see it go out for like all of "That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana". Like they could make Chelsea/Victor/Stanley/Cory/Eddie guest stars on Suite Life and Hannah Montana too.

    That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana

    The hotel tries to plan a birthday party for Carey. I loved the "old" jokes, and when the party happened. And when everybody kept suprising the wrong person, like Moseby and Raven. That was hilarious. I also loved the Zack/Cody plot. But the Hannah Montana (HM) plot was just too short.

    On the Road Again

    Miley tries to get Robbie Ray back on stage. It wasn't the most funniest, funniest episode but I do want Marty Clien (I think I spelled that wrong, too :P) to come back sometime. He was funny! Ladies and gentlemans, Marty Clien! I Want My Marty Back!

    I give the complete "That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana" special, an 8.0!moreless
  • Not a good way to end the show, but at least it was a great episode.

    Donna Cobanna makes Raven her temporarily assistant when Raven is sick, but this could become a problem when Raven has to orginize a photoshoot with a new portable device called the secretec in which she does not know how to work. When she arrives at a hotel called the Tipton in Boston, Massachusetts. Her reservations for the hotel are sucessful, but she accidentally leaves the photographer, Pistache, and the twins for the photoshoot halfway around the world. So when Raven meets twins Zack and Cody Martin, she uses them for the photoshoot as the two twins while Raven is disguised as Pistache, but soon enough Donna is disguised as Pistache as well for the photoshoot, and soon enough the real Pistache comes! At the end, Raven and Donna lie that they dressed like Pistache for her honor and the photoshoot is a sucess, but Raven is stuck at the Tipton in the end, riding a bellhop cart. I thought this episode was hilarious, but the original idea for the episode, "Here Comes the Twins" would've been better as a series finale. Also, ever since Fur Better or Worse, I've been thinking that Eddie has turned into Cory now, which is bumping into his great character in this episode, as well as the rest in the fourth season. Well, I enjoyed this episode, but I won't consider it as a great series finale.

    FINAL GRADE: A-moreless
  • Raven must organize a photo shoot at no where else but, the Tipton Hotel in Boston. There she chekcs in but realizes, thanks to Mr.Moseby, that her models and photographers are missing. She uses the Martin twins as new models and herself as photographer.moreless

    I thought this episode was well written. They incorporated both That's So Raven and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody well together. My favorite part personally was Raven's interaction with Mosbey(or is it Mosby?) I knew something to that effect and comic routine would happen. Disney really to imagery out of my head and scripted it onto film. The episode was really funny too. This episode is part of the That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana special, and is the 1st to be shown in order. This episode is awesome for both That's So Raven fans and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody fans.moreless
  • Raven must arrange a photo shoot at the Tipton Hotel where she meets Mr Moesby, Zack, and Cody.

    I loved this episode. I thought when Raven found out Pastash was in Italy and she started crying on the cart that the bellhop was pushing. I love this episode, even the part people find borring. When Chealsea was playing the the ball. That was kind of boring, but it was fantastic!!! I totally rate this 10! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! But...what the best part when Pastash starts dancing after the photoshoot. Maybe that would be counted as funniest...but hey, I liked it. Also, the star falling was pretty funny when Zack smelled her. Although, that was pretty stupid. But I LIKED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Rondell Sheridan (Victor Baxter) only appears in the beginning of the episode, when Chelsea was using the paddle ball, he doesn't appear for the rest of the episode.

    • When Raven was trying to figure out the Secretec, she looked at the manual for it and it spelled "Secretek", but when she was talking to Pistache, the top spelled it "Secretec".

    • Isn't it kind of unusual that Raven and Donna would be wearing the exact same Pistache disguise? This after they see her on the teleconference call in San Francisco. How would be sure she'd be wearing the exact same outfit the next day when she's in Boston. And why was a famous fashion designer like Pistache be wearing the same outfit on consecutive days?

    • When Raven and Donna Cabonna are both dressed up as Pistache and are talking at the candy counter, you can see the real Pistache in the background waiting to come in the door. (obviously waiting for her cue to come in)

    • In this episode Maddie and Estaban do not appear, there are others working in their positions instead (candy counter girl and bell hop).

    • This is the second time Raven fills in for Tiffany as Donna Cobanna's assistant.

    • Zack and Cody from "The Suite Life" appear in this episode.

      Raven has 2 visions in this episode. One is her seeing an actress fall. The other is seeing Donna Cobanna's new fashion catalog succeeding.

      (from behind Raven, Zack and Cody appear)
      Zack: (to Cody over cheers and applause from the audience) I can't believe our favorite actress is checking out today, and Moseby won't even let us near her!
      Cody: Tyler Sparks. All I wanted was one autograph.
      Zack: I just wanted to smell her.
      (cut back to Raven, who's now sobbing into her phone; then she has her vision: Tyler's cell phone rings; she picks it up and says "This is Tyler. Yes, I read it; it's GARBAGE. Of course I'll do it," but then she slips backward onto the floor in front of the boys)

    • Donna: Of course I'm Pistache. Who else would I be, Donna Cobanna?

    • Raven: (To Zack and Cody) You're Juan, and you're Kevelt.
      Cody: Actually he's Juan and I'm Kevelt.

    • (after Raven has her vision, a cell phone rings; Tyler Sparks picks it up)

      Raven: (to Zack and Cody) You guys, put your arms out!

      Zack: (suspiciously) Good to know.
      Cody: I'm Cody, and this is Zack.
      Raven: I'm Raven.
      Cody: And if there's anything we can do for you, we've got your back.
      Raven: Really? Hey, do you know how to work a SecreTech?
      (the boys laugh)
      Zack: Nobody does.
      (the boys walk away)

    • Donna: How would you like to be my assistant for the trip?
      (Raven hyperventilates; thinking she was going to scream, Donna starts to cover her ears; Raven doesn't scream; Donna breathes a sigh of relief, but then-)
      Raven: (earsplittingly shrilly) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!

      Chelsea: No, but u got what you deserved.
      Cory: Nothing!
      Chelsea: Exactly. Now if you excuse me, I'm going to set the record behind my back.

      Donna: Yes, she came down with some horrible lip fungus.

  • NOTES (22)


    • Budapragueaslovakia is a combination of two Eastern Euopean capitals: Budapest, Hungary and Prague, Czech Republic and the country Slovakia.

    • Pistache's character accent and appearance is strangely similar to the superhero fashion designer (Edna Mode) from Disney/Pixar's computer-animated film, The Incredibles.
