  • I hated Zack here

    Zack and Cody have a shopping competition against their chief rivals, but Zack goofs off at a party the night before. Meanwhile, Moseby's niece Nia comes to visit, and wantes to go to the same party with London, even though Moseby denied. Zack was as dumb as a brick in this episode. And it was his fault they lost the competition.
  • This episode= UH!

    I found everyone to be completely doofuses in this episode. Zack basically goofed off to some party looking for some "love" and didn't sleep. Next day, during the competition he was too tired. Cody, on the other hand, I found him to be jerky as well when he goofed off as well. It was from this very episode that London's character changed considerably as she began acting all ***ed. This episode should honestly have been named "The Downfall of London". She was horrible, however Nia was okay. Mr Moseby was the normal character here.

    Zack loses the competition and still acts jerky. I hatehim here.moreless
  • Why was everyone acting like a jerk?!

    Ok, this episode is really irritating.i mean everyone as acting like a jerk. 1) Zack. you know, he's usually a jerk, but in this episode he has gone too far. I mean he was the one that caused the store to lose the whole baggage competition. and he was like

    Wayne: ..... i do not look good in lady's clothes

    Zack: Just so you know, you dont look so good in men's clothes either

    I was like WTH?! how rude could he be. and whats more he made them lose the whole competition and still had time to slp.

    2) Nia. She is the most annoying brat i have ever seen. but thats her character i guess

    3) London. How would you like it if other people called you at a different name? And i guess she doesnt understand the meaning of be quiet huh? 4) Carrie. really disappointed with her. she was like im still blinded with Wayne. I mean seriously, its her son's fault and yet she dares to say this?

    I dont hate this episode, its just, i dont like the way they potrayed the characters. i did laugh at some jokes but still.moreless
  • I luffed this episode!

    I really like this show but this episode impressed me, a lot. First off though Ashley Tisdale(Maddie), wasn't in this episode because of whatever she's busy with. Although, Nia made up for it(almost). I liked Nia's and London's part, London was stupid in this episode but did it really well. My fav part of hers was when she attempted the Z-snap and the sista thing. Hah hah hah... Zack and Cody's bag thing was really funny too, in the end they were partying with Nia and Londom though. They didn't look too bad in dresses.... so overall it was a good episode and I haven't seen it it was new to me even though it was so old or something...moreless
  • Quite a funny show

    This review contains massive spoilers to the episode.

    So, this is my third review. Anyways

    This episode, Cody and Zack are challenging against another shopping mart. While Nia is goofing off as usual, taking advantage of London. Quite funny. Zack lost one of the challenges. Loser have to w ear a dress. Some of the gags are lame.

    Overall this wasn't a bad show. still okay i guess. Love the dramatic part in the end. Sloooow Motion. Team Zack won! Or not. NOOOO. Zack sleeps on a bag of potatoes while carey tried to buy a fish. While wayne is wearing a dress... Dont forget Zack and Cody.

    Zack admitted for the first time!moreless

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Nia: (referring to Mr. Moseby) He is not the boss of you! You're the boss of him.
      London: You're right. I'm London Tipton, and I can do whatever I want, whenever I want!
      (both Nia and London see Mr. Moseby at the entrance)
      London: Let's sneak out the back.
      Nia: Okay.

    • Skippy: (to Carey) Moseby said he'd be here as soon as possible.

      Nia: It's Nia.
      London: I got the "ia" part right.
      Nia: Yes, sir-ia, and more importantly, you got us front-row seats to see Toxic Vomit. Yeah!
      London: Ok. Let's hit it, girlfriend! (performs a Z-snap and wobbles her head)
      Nia: Don't do that.
      London: You got it, sista!
      Nia: That, either. Ever.

    • Wayne: Well, with these yahoos were gonna kick some Betsy Ross Butts!!

    • London: (to Mr. Moseby about Nia) I want her fired!
      Nia: He can't fire me. I'm his favorite niece! Ain't that right, Uncle Marion?
      Mr. Moseby: Well, you are my only niece. Ergo, my favorite.
      London: Wait, wait! Who's your favorite? Her or this "Ergo" person?
      Nia: I just heard the air go out her head.

      Nia: Hey Uncle Marion.
      Moseby: One second, Nia. She's style one, sixteen years old, she's wearing blue jean and white blouse… Ah (claps his hands) Never mind! (Puts the receiver down). Nia! What took you so long?
      Nia: Well, I sold my plane ticket and took the bus.
      Moseby: Oh, what you do with the money?
      Nia: I got you a gift.
      Moseby: Oh, how sweet! Oh hoo, look at that…, ear rings? I don't wear ear rings.
      Nia: Really? Well, I guess I has to keep them.
      Moseby: Same old Nia, always looking for the quick buck.
      Nia: Quick? That was a seventy hour ride, sitting next to a guy who smelled like a goat. I don't even want to tell you what the goat smells like.
      Moseby: Thank you. I promised your mother I will take you in this summer and turn you into a proper young lady.
      Nia: You know, that's what Aunt Lili told me last year. After one week with me, she changed name and moved to Alaska.
      Moseby: Anyway, I told your mother what you need is a job. Now Millicent will show you what to do.

    • Zack: Hey, Millicent, we'll take a chocolate Christy Bar.
      Cody: Hurts my money. We'll take a Twisty Cho Bar.
      Zack: Christy Bar.
      Cody: Twisty Bar.
      Zack: Christy Bar.
      Cody: Twisty Bar.
      Millicent: Okay, that's it! It's because of you people that I wake up in the middle of the night screaming! Well, I kinda did that before... but it's gotten worse since I started working here! Eat this (reaches for a magazine) and LIKE IT!
      Zack: Wow, Millicent, I've never seen you stand up for yourself like this.
      Millicent: Yeah, it feels good. (She falls to the grown unconscious)
      Nia: Look like an easy job. All I have to do is lie down. I get starting (Jumps to the couch and napping).
      Moseby: (Frustrating)

    • Nia: By the way, is it true that you own a private jet?
      London: Jets.
      Nia: Ooh even better! You take one, I take one and we race to Paris.
      London: Dibs on the pink one!
      Nia: A-right!

    • Wayne: (To Carey) May I offer you my heart? Of Palm. Get it, the Heart of the Palm? It's right in the can!
      Carey: Yeah, I think I'm gonna arti-choke!

    • Wayne: What's wrong with you?
      Zack: Sorry, I'm just a little tired.
      Wayne: Well, you better wake up, pal, because I do no look good in women's clothes!

      London: I like Tia better. Can you change it?
      Nia: Are we going in your limo?
      London: Mm-hmm.
      Nia: Call me Tia!

    • Millicent: I still don't understand. If I'm taking your shift so you can go to a concert, why are you still getting the money?
      Nia: Hello, it's my shift.
      Millicent: Oh, right, thanks for explaining.

    • Nia: Hold up there, girl. Say, why don't we go fly to London?
      London: I'm already here.

    • London: Mint me, candy girl.
      Nia: Excuse me, but I have a name.
      London: Excuse me, but, uh, I don't like to read.
      Nia: Excuse me, but, uh, you should try. Your turn.
      London: Just mint me!
      Nia: Well, if you insist. (takes a mint, licks it and sticks it on London's forehead) Consider yourself minted.
      London: Oh, that's disgusting!
      Nia: No. (tastes the mint) That's peppermint.

  • NOTES (6)

    • The German episode title is "Mosebys Benimmkurs", meaning "Moseby's Manners Course".

    • We learn that Zack and Cody are used to sleeping to the music of Toxic Vomit.

    • This is Giovannie Samuel's first Disney Channel appearance since That's So Raven. She will now appear as a recurring character this season as she is the replacement for Maddie at the candy counter.

    • This is the second time where Zack competes tired and loses. The first time was in the episode "Risk it All" where he was so tired that he lost in the final phase of the competition.

    • Maddie does not appear in this episode again, bringing the total up to 3 episodes that she has missed.

    • This is the third time a relative of Mr. Moseby is shown. The first was his brother in "Moseby's Big Brother", and the second was his grandmother in "Nugget of History".


    • London (to Nia): Not so fast Leah!
      Nia: It's Nia..
      London: Whatever; Nia, Tia, Leah, Gia.

      Though London cannot remember Nia's name, Brenda Song (London) played Tia on Phil of the Future, and the episode where her character was written out was entitled "Tia, Via, or Me...Uh", similar to London's line in this episode. Brenda's final appearance on Phil of the Future was actually a few episodes earlier when she left to join The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

    • Zack: It'll be a mini-mart Triathlon, Bagging, pricing and cleaning. Cody: Oh my! This is an allusion to The Wizard of Oz's line of: "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!"

    • The Betsy Ross Stop & Shop possibly alludes to a highly popular North Eastern United States grocery store chain by the name of Stop & Shop, which got its start in Massachusetts.
