Zack Stunt Double
When Arwin was showing his vacuum device to Moseby in the dream, Moseby says that it has a few "bugs" in it, but in fact, the term "has a bug" did not exist at that time, it was invented way after when the room-sized computers were made...
In this episode Carey says to the boys in the flashback that they need to study for their American history test. A few lines later she announces that she's designing a flag for our new country, but she just called it America.
At first when you see Arwin's ball of yarn it is yellow. When you see Mr. Moseby fall over him when he's unconscious it is a creamy color, but then it goes back to being yellow at the end.
When they are all in Zacks dream the clothes Cole and Dylan were wearing were very similar to the outfit they wore in "Big Daddy", when Julian was Benjamin Franklin for the play, and also Arwin was supposed to be like Benjamin Franklin in this episode.
You can tell that Dylan Sprouse (Zack) shoes are purposely loose at the start of the episode.
It's doubtful Esteban would have gotten a summons for jury duty on the very same day he learns he's a U.S. citizen.
This is the third time Zack's armpit hair has been brought up.
1. "Grounded on the 23rd Floor" - Zack and Cody are looking his armpit hair.
2. "Day Care" - Zack argues that his armpit hair are "blond and hard to see".
3. "Boston Tea Party" - Zack admits to having only one armpit hair.
Arwin has the old-fashioned vacuum, and all the stuff pops out, its real dark and in one part of his mouth. Then the shot cuts to Moseby, then back to Arwin, but the black stuff is spread all around his face like a beard, and it is lighter.
The construction worker driving the bulldozer wouldn't run over Carey and the twins because it would kill them and he'd probably get arrested or sued.
When Arwin bunked his head on the tree and fell, you can see a woman and man laugh and smile at the fall.
Esteban's "lucky rabbit foot" is fake.
Look Close: In the last scene at the tree, you can see London in the background starting to take off her purse while she is still on camera.Brenda Song must not have realized that she still could be seen.
Every time Zack &/or Cody dream, it is always on the couch.
In the beginning of this episode Arwin's yarn was is the shape of a yarn ball, but in the end if the episode when Arwin walks into the tree branch he falls on to the yarn its now in the shape of a log.
Kim Rhodes must have been losing her voice during the taping of this episode, because she is hoarse.
Crier: But on the bright side, we just won the revolution!
Zack: Wow, that was fast.
Carey: What do you expect? This is a dream.
Zack: Is it?
Bob: (walks in the room wearing petticoats) Yeah, it better be. Next time, could you dream I was a Viking?
Mr. Moseby: Maddie, now get back to work, we need to raise the price on the sweet milks.
Maddie: But you just raised them ten minutes ago.
Mr. Moseby: Well the president has raised the taxes on everything again including sugar and tea.
London: (pass across a couple)Making way passes! Don't you love my new hair? I just got it cut. I hear the short look is in.
Maddie: Mr. Moseby I tell you, no one can buy that overpriced tea.
London: Except me.
Arwin: Hey guys, check out of my old stuff. I found it the basement.
Maddie: Wow, Arwin you're right. This stuff is amazing.
Arwin: Oh, no no no. I talk about this bally yarn. No wonder cats love this stuff.
Carey: My point is if you believe in something strongly enough, you should fight for it, no matter what the odds.
Cody: I see your point mom. I'm going to write a strongly worded letter, with explanation points and an illiterate use of underlining!
Carey: I'm proud of you son, my little hero.
Zack: Ha, your little hero sleeps with a bunny rabbit night-light.
Zack: They're removing trees in the park across the street.
Carey: No, they can't do that. We should fight this! (show the needle on Cody face)
Cody: Wow mom, what are you going to do? Hem them to death? (pulls his pants and the table-cover stuck to them because Carey had sewn the pants and table -cloth together)
Zack: Well, her sewing is dangerous.
London: Stop! If you get any dirt on this dress, daddy will take away your bullydozer!
Cody: Mom, we got the worst news ever!
Carey: Cheap Charlie's is going out of business!?
Zack: Listen, Quill-boy...paper may beat rock, but cannon make HUGE hole in paper.
Zack: (To Moseby about their skateboards) I believe he (Arwin) called it ... television.
Arwin: I had a vision and I had to tell you about it.
Carey, Cody, Maddie and Zack: (Repeatedly) Don't mess with me, or the tree of liberty.
London: (walking in with a very tall hairstyle) Maketh way peasants, don't you love my hair? I just got it cut I hear the short look is in.
Carrie: I am making a flag. This will show the British we are not to be trifled with. (shows flag of bunny) Don't Tread on Me! Cody: Love the saying, but the bunny isn't exactly scary. Carrie: (disillusioned) Its supposed to be a bear.
London: Emotionally I'm with them (the protestors), but you know...(shows off her dress) Atora Vitali.
Arwin: I'm gonna tie myself to this tree, so you'll have to go through me. Hey, that rhymes!
Vinnie: I got a cute poem. Roses are red, violets are blue, I can't wait to run over you!
Arwin: Well, you are going to have a long wait. (turns around and hits his head on the tree; he falls to the ground unconscious)
Cody: You were right. There's no use in fighting City Hall. Zack: No, I was wrong. You can fight City Hall. Cody: Dude, pick a side. Zack: I just had a dream, and it taught me two things. No matter how small you are, if you're fighting for something you believe in, you can win. Cody: What's the second thing? Zack: Bob looks terrible in petticoats. Wait...I just thought of a way to save our park. Can they tear it down if it has historical significance? Cody: Probably not. But you're 360 double-kick over the water fountain doesn't count. Zack: That's not what I'm talking about. And by the way, it should count.
Moseby: Bill, bill, bill...Hey Bill, your mail's here.
Cody: Zack figured it out!
Mr. Moseby: No, seriously.
Zack: I have my moments.
Carey: What are you doing?
Zack: Counting my armpit hair. 1...done.
Maddie: Esteban don't worry, you're gonna do great on the test.
Esteban: Ok, ok. Remind me again, what's the President's cabinet?
London: Oh, that's easy! That's where Mrs. President keeps all the cleaning supplies.
Maddie: (to Esteban) Ignore her and you'll do fine.
Zack: Stand still!
Cody: Quit kicking!
Zack: I'm only kicking 'cause you're not standing still!
Carey: Boys, it's time to get upstairs and study for your American History test.
Zack: Mother, there is no history. Yesterday we got off the boat, and today we bathed in the creek.
London: Ten pounds of tea, please.
Maddie: Who drinks ten pounds of tea?
London: Nobody, silly. I bathe in it. Huzzah for me!
Cody: Sir, notice it dosent say dear sir.
Zack: Oo that may make him cry.
Carey: Zack at least your brother is fighting for something he believes in. By the way how many pages is that letter.
Cody: Eighteen. Single spaced. Okay here it goes.
Carey: Ohh! Im late for rehearsal. Im sure its great though honey. Love you bye.
Cody: No problem i'll just read it to Zack.
Zack: I picked a bad day to be Zack.
London: Irene, have you set up my reservations at the Happy Badger yet?
Irene the Concierge: I'll do it right away Lady Tipton! Hey, Bartholomew! Two for dinner tonight at 7:00!
Bartholomew: Booth or table?!
Irene the Concierge: Booth or table?
Irene the Concierge: BOOTH!
Vinnie: Hey, kids, you like to play here in the park?
Zack: We love it!
Vinnie: Too bad. We're paving it over.
Cody: You can't do that!
Zack: Yeah, this is where we play!
Vinnie: Come back in 6 months. You can play in the parking lot. Bring a push broom. You can make a few bucks.
Esteban: It might not always be that way. In fact, I envision a country that will one day reach from sea to shining sea.
Zack: Yeah. And someday man will walk on the moon.
Maddie: Yeah, right.
Arwin: Actually, I'm working on that, but I am going to need a very long rope.
Crier: (crying) Nothing's going right. My cow ran dry. My wooden teeth have termites. And my girlfriend left me for the village fool.
(everyone looks at Arwin)
Arwin: Don't look at me. I didn't even run for Fool this year.
Maddie: This is a great day!
Esteban: We've made history!
Zack: Oh, great. More for me to study.
Cody: You were there, and you're still probably going to fail.
Esteban: Just think how wonderful it will be when we're all citizens and can vote.
Cody: Can Zack and I vote?
Esteban: No, you're only kids.
Carey: Can Maddie and I vote?
Esteban: No, you're only women.
Maddie: So who can vote?
Esteban: Those who are qualified to. Me and Arwin.
Maddie: Don't we have any other choices?
Esteban: Oh, Maddie, guess what? I'm going to take a test and become a citizen of the United States. All 13 of them.
Maddie: There are 50 states.
Esteban: I better get a new pamphlet. (blows dust off pamphlet)
Carey: I once dated this guy.
Zack & Cody: Ugh!
Cody: You fought city hall and won.
Zack: And then your boyfriend dumped you.
Carey: Did I tell you this story before?
Zack: No, that's just how all your boyfriend stories end.
Zack: You know, Mom, I've learned a lot in my 13 years. And one of the things I've learned is when a little guy tries to fight a big guy, the little guy ends up head-first in the garbage.
Carey: Oh, honey, did that happen to you?
Zack: No. Cody. (laughs) I was watching from behind the lockers.
Maddie: Who was the first president of the United States?
London: Ooh, ooh! I know, I know! He chopped down a cherry tree, had icky wooden teeth. Don't tell me.
Esteban: It's George Washington!
London: No, that's not it.
Maddie: Yes, it is. The guy on the $1 bill.
London: They make a $1 bill?!
Moseby: Here's your first perk, jury duty.
(Maddie and London console him)
Esteban: No, this is great! I get to serve my country already! I need two weeks off.
Zack: Maddie and London, I need you to alert the media!
Maddie: But how do we get their attention?
London: Hello? I walk outside.
(Starts walking away from the door)
Maddie: And outside would be that way! (Points at the door)
Zack: (dreaming) Little Bob Peep lost his sheep...
Chocolate Salesman: Sorry, King Charles just raised the taxes on chocolate.
Zack: Oh no he di-idn't. Give me chocolate or give me death!
Maddie: I bet you can't name a single founding father!
London: Can so! My father founded Tipton Industries!
Maddie: No, no, I meant -
London: I'm bored. Bye!
Maddie: He's right. My take-home pay is so small, I won't even be able to afford a used horse. And I'm like getting my license like this year! Esteban: She's a Valley Forge girl.
Esteban: The people are revolting!
London: You're telling me? Have you seen how they dress? (Everyone looks at her) What am I wrong? (She starts leaving)
Esteban: Oh, we dress the best we can! Considering most of our money goes to English taxes. (sounding as Texas)
Maddie: You mean taxes?
Esteban: That's what I said!
Maddie: Give me liberty
Cody: Or give me death
Zack: Is there a third choice?
In 1775, Mr. Tipton's ancestor, Lord Tipton, was on the side of King George.
Zack is wearing the same shirt as Drew in "Hotel Hangout", which is probably from the same wardrobe used for Drew.
This is the second time that Dylan Sprouse (Zack) needed a stunt double.
Zack can climb trees, but he can't get down.
Apparently, Maddie thinks Arwin's name is Herman. This is strange because in the episode "The Ghost of 613", Maddie called him Arwin.
London doesn't know that there is a one dollar bill.
Esteban gets jury duty in this episode.
This is the first episode Zack admits he has almost no armpit hair.
The vase does not appear in this episode.
Zack doesn't tie his shoes.
Zack hates heights.
This episode drew in 3.68 million viewers, losing a few viewers since last week.
In the old painting, you could see Zack, Cody, Maddie and Carey in it with old clothing.
When Moseby hands a letter to Vinnie about how the tree is historic, he tells Vinnie to 'read it and weep' which is a possible plug to an upcoming DCOM, Read It and Weep.
Estaban becomes an American citizen in this episode.
Like in the present, in 1775 Cody wears more formal clothing than Zack. Cody's hair is also more formal. Curly as opposed to straight where in the present Cody's hair is combed and Zack's in untidy.
The Tipton is called "The Tipton Inn" in 1775.
(1) Esteban, trying to say "taxes," says "Texas."
(2) Someone saying, "No, seriously," when hearing that Zack came up with the plan.
(3) Zack saying he learned two things where the second thing is a joke.
Irene the Concierge makes another appearance and gets a few speaking lines (a first!).
Zack is slightly taller than Cody in this episode.
This is the second time Charlie Stewart (Bob) is dressed as a girl. The first time is in "Election", where he plays a double role as his sister.
"...paper may beat rock, but cannonball makes HUGE hole in paper."
This is a reference to a well-known game commonly called "Paper, Rock, Scissors." In the game - played with hand gestures - paper covers rock, rock breaks scissors, and scissors cut paper.
When Esteban was saying women could not vote, during the 1770s, it was because women were not allowed to vote until the 19th Amendment was passed in 1920.
Don't Tread on Me:
The flag that Carey is sewing has this saying on it. It refers to an actual flag during the American Revolution with the same phrase on it. However, the animal on the flag was a rattlesnake. It was a symbol to show the English that if they tread to hard on the colonies, then they would bite back. (Just like a rattlesnake).
When Esteban mentions that the United States will spread from sea to sea, it was referring to Manifest Destiny. Manifest Destiny was an idea, prominent in the 19th century, that intended the U.S. to stretch from ocean to ocean (Atlantic to Pacific).
Carey was dressed up as Betsy Ross because she was designing a new flag for the new country. Plus, she was also sewing something all the time.
In this episode, Arwin is dressed as Ben Franklin, a famous inventor and scientist from the eighteenth century.
Valley Forge Girl:
When Maddie says "And I'm like getting my license like this year", Esteban says she is a valley forge girl.
This is an allusion to Valley Girls who talk full of themselves, and use the word "like" in every other word or sentence.
Quote: Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death.
"Give me liberty or give me death" is a famous quote from a speech made by Patrick Henry to the Virginia House of Burgesses.
The speech was given March 23, 1775, at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia, and is credited with having singlehandedly convinced the Virginia House of Burgesses to pass a resolution delivering the Virginia troops to the Revolutionary War. In attendance were Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Reportedly, the crowd, upon hearing the speech, jumped up and shouted, "To Arms! To Arms!"
Title: Boston Tea Party
The Boston Tea Party is a historical event that happened in American History. It took place on December 16, 1773. It was a protest by the Colonists against Great Britain's tax on tea. The Colonists dumped over 300 crates of tea into Boston Harbor. The harbor turned temporarily brown.
