  • Sub Standard

    Zack and Cody's father shows the twins his apartment and they both invite a girl to hang out there, when he's not home. Meanwhile, London teaches Esteban how to act rich. Oh no, a below average episode. Why would their dates think they would own a suite? And London's not getting any better.
  • Weird episode

    Both parts of the episode were stupid to me, especially London's part. I hate her now officially. She just became so annoying. The least she could've done was show a little sympathy for Estaban when he became poor again but no. Bad episode highly recommend you not watching it. Waste of time.
  • poor

    kurt shows the boys his apartment and when he mentions he won't be there, they invite their dates on the same night. london teaches esteban how to act rich.

    it was OK, but i find it unbelievable that Zack's girlfriend and Barbara would believe that either of them owned a hotel. They're what, 16, 17? Now, some people around that age do, but usually when they don't want to live with their parents, and Zack's date and Barbare clearly knew they lived with carey still... they were incredibly dumb to believe them, and so my grade is a low "D"moreless
  • When Kurt shows Zack and Cody his apartment, they are thrilled, and both invite their dates there on the same night.

    So Kurt comes for a visit and takes the kids off Carrie's hands for a bit to show them his new, or I guess it's new? Well anyways… his apartment and they are thrilled. It's a great apartment, and they immediately invite their girlfriends over to "their" apartment.

    Well first Zack invites his girlfriend over.. Then Cody invites Barbara over.. And Mark invites a model over as his girlfriend!?! When Cody came with Barbara, it kind of annoyed me, but Mark? That was the final straw. But eventually they would have an "ok" time playing spin-the-bottle only to be interrupted by Kurt, as a viking! Well then Kurt would tell them that's wrong and all, and then Carrie would come along wondering where the boys are and she'd test Kurt and see if he was being responsible. It was funny though when Carrie said- "Did you call the girls' parents?" And Kurt responded, "Only if they're single." That made me laugh out loud, lol.

    Overall, the episode was pretty good and I liked it. It was funny, but I wish they wouldn't of included Mark. He and the dumb model were pretty annoying, but that's just my opinion.moreless
  • Esteban is rich!

    Zack and Cody each invite a girl over to their dad's empty apartment. Meanwhile, London teaches Esteban how to act rich because his family has seized power in his native country.

    In this episode, another main character besides Loudon gets rich. That character would be Esteban. I loved seeing him rich and someday, I hope he gets his money back. It was a very funny episode too. There should be more episodes like this because they are some of my favorite types of story lines. Oh yeah, and the Zack and Cody parts were awesome too. Great episode all around. 10/10moreless
