    Zack and Cody take aptitude tests and Zack finds out he's going to be a CEO, while Cody finds out he's going to be a garbage man. But at the end, the creator of the aptitude tests says their fake, much to Zack's dismay. Meanwhile, London returns from Morocco and Maddie saves the ambassador's life. It was perfect. Zack's dream was hilarious.
  • Awesome Season 2 finale!

    Great episode. Finally, Zack and Cody have another "mix up" episode. It was great seeing their futures swapped over. Maddie's part could've been a bit bigger but that also went nicely.



    I loved Cody's nightmares and how Zack was covering his face with a maths magazine when Carey walked in.



    Great episode. Give it a go

    zack and cody take career aptitude tests and cody's says he will be a garbage man, while Zack's says he will be a CEO. maddie saves the life of someone and becomes famous, but will she discover that fame is fleeting?



    a good episode, it felt kind of short, and the london and maddie sub plot with her being jealous about maddie being famous was kind of boring but i enjoyed the rest too much to care. i thought it was an interesting and entertaining episode, and so my grade for it is of course, an A+. All around perfectmoreless
  • "Zack's got the money!"

    9.5
    "Zack's got the money!" That was a great song, in a great episode. I thought Season 2's quality was dipping a bit, but with this episode it flew right back up.



    My favorite part was their dreams. hat was really funny. "Zack's got the money! Zack's got the money!" and then Cody had the same dream, only he had to clean up after Zack, because the Aptitude thing said he would be a "Sanitation Engineer" or "Janitor."



    "I hope it makes the whooshing sound!" WHOOSH! "Oh, those are the best!" Great line said by Zack. I, too, like th whooshing sounds when you send something. :P



    So, overall, great episode, and it deserves a 10, but sometimes (for only about 2 minutes!) it was a bit boring.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Maddie says that London has never "yah'ed" anyone but herself, but she "yah's" her father once in "Not So Suite 16".

    • Just like last season there are some clips in the opening credits that are not actually in any episode. The first one is when Zack has his hands on his head and moving them back and forth, and the other is when Maddie is in her school uniform and says "yeah".

    • Parts of this episode are in the opening credits (of Season 3): when Zack is looking at the "Money Bags" Magazine, and when Zack is dancing in his dream.

    • When London has dinner with the ambassador, she says: "Sit wherever you like" insinuating that she'd let him sit first, but she takes the initiative and sits before him.

    • Zack's letter makes a wooshing sound when he sends it in, unlike Cody's.

    • When Maddie saves London, London spits out the food and Patrick says "Ow". But if you pay close attention, the piece of food didn't actually hit Patrick, it just went right by him.

    • This episode was originally set to air before "Nugget of History", so Maddie mentions her job as Hilary Hen at the Cluck Bucket, but she is no longer Hilary Hen, she works behind the counter.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Carey: Who wants pizza bagels!! It's pizza... on a bagel.

    • Zack: 24% compounded yearly means 2% compounded monthly?
      Carey: (gasping in surprise) Zack, you just did math in your head!
      Zack: WOW! I did! You know if they just put dollar signs in front the numbers, math would be a whole lot easier.

    • Cody: But, I'm the smart one, I'm the smart one...
      Zack: Oh yeah, then what's the capital of Honduras?
      Cody: Tegucigalpa.
      Zack: Wow, he really is the smart one.

    • Zack: Should I get a flying car, a flying boat, or a flying monkey?
      Carey: There's no such things as flying monkeys.
      (Zack shows her a magazine picture).
      Carey: Well, I'll be darned.

    • (Pete, the man behind the aptitude test, emerges from under the desk)
      Pete: How may I help you?
      Carey: (disbelievingly) You're the "International Life Assessment and Testing Corporation"?
      Pete: Yesiree! I'm also a dating service, online casino. Plus, I sell fat-free doughnuts.
      Carey: Well, we have a complaint.
      Pete: Fine! There's a little fat in 'em! Without it, they'd just crumble!
      Carey: WE'RE NOT HERE ABOUT YOUR DANG DOUGHNUTS!

    • Patrick: Mr. Moseby, my podium is falling apart, and I want a new one. I picked out a lovely one from Podium Emporium. It's mahogany, with a little holder for my spectacles!
      Mr. Moseby: (gasps) Oh, it is beautiful! However, we can't afford it!
      Patrick: I'm prepared to quit!
      Mr. Moseby: I'm prepared to replace you!
      Patrick: I hate when you do that!

    • London: I've been to Morocco. It's so wonderful there! During the day, it's so bright.
      Maddie: And at night, it gets dark?
      London: You've been there?
      Maddie: Just guessing.

    • London: Daddy's gonna build a hotel on a beach and name it after me.
      Maddie: Oh, great! I can't wait to stay at Hotel Airhead!

    • Cody: You're going to be the head of a large corporation and I'm going to be a garbage man?! There must be some mistake!
      Zack: (drops candy wrapper on the floor) Cody, can you throw that away for me?
      Cody: Yeah. (picks it up and throws it away)
      Zack: Nope, no mistake.

    • Mr. Moseby: Patrick, what if I get you a new podium?
      Patrick: And a raise.
      Mr. Moseby: Not gonna happen.
      Patrick: I'm prepared to quit.
      Mr. Moseby: I'm prepared to replace you.
      Patrick: Podium it is.
