  • Day care

    Maddie is looking after some preschooler, but when her family has some breaking news, she leaves the twins in charge of them, and they go missing in the Tipton. Meanwhile, London takes Carey and Moseby to a yoga class to loosen up. This was funny. I couldn't think of a better way to plot this episode. A+.
  • "Daycare" is an awesome episode! :)

    Season 2 is off to a roll! I love it. It had all sorts of moments. Brilliant touch in this episode. I absolutely spent all episode ROFL'ing, especially at Mr Moseby finding his inner peace with yoga training!



    The hide and seek game between the daycare kids and the twins was hilarious and this episode matched up perfectly! 10/10

    i thought this episode was very funny but randal was really weird and creepy but other wise this was a really good episode. i really liked the parts where london was trying to teach mr.mosbey yoga that was really funny. i loved the part where estobon left while the kids were sleeping and slammed the door shut and all kids woke up and when they did there was scary music i thought that was really funny i dont know why i just did. i think this is one of my favorite episodes and one of the best ones in season two if you haven't seen it yet and ur a fan of the show i suggest that you watch it cuz its really good bye!moreless
  • Day Care was one of the funniest and best episodes ever. This episode had Moises Arias in it who later went on to star as Rico on Hannah Montana.

    Moises Arias played Randall in this episode and he was hilarious. Maddie is working at a daycare taking care of kids. When she has to leave she leaves Estabon in charge of the kids but then he has to leave and he leaves Zack and Cody in charge of the kids. The kids drive Zack and Cody crazy and they eventually escape and run wild all around the hotel. All of the kids were funny but Moises Arias was the funniest as Randall. The other story had Moseby and Carey going to a yoga class with London and when London makes the yoga teacher quit she ends up teaching the class. This is one of the funniest and best episodes ever and I wish that they would have let Moises Arias come back on the show more often. He was so funny in this episode. The whole episode was hilarious.moreless
  • It was great!

    Oh . . . My . . . Gosh! Another great episode from thw riters! I think that the early Season 2 episodes were the best and the peak of excellence. This was one of those episodes. I can't believe how young Moises Arias looks in this episode, compared to what he looks like in the latest episodes of Hannah Montana. I loved the little kids in the daycare! And, I loved it when they were on the hunt, looking for them throughout the hotel. I'd wish they'd make another Day Care episode, because if it was like this one, it might be my favorite episode in the series.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (20)

    • When the baby "pees" you can tell it's fake because the "pee" is a fair distance away from the baby.

    • When the kids start to "cry" after Esteban sings to them, they don't appear to be crying at all as they look as if they're smiling/laughing.

      Edit: Listen, it's Disney. I wouldn't expect perfect acting from little kids when their main actors aren't even that great.

    • When Maddie reads the note from Liam, it says he went to the movies, but in "Not So Suite 16" he's about 8. How could he suddenly go to the movies alone unless he went with his parents. And he said "Love Liam". I doubt Liam would put Love in a note to Maddie since in "Not So Suite 16" he taunted Maddie about not being able to have her party at The Pimento Grove.

      Edit: 1. They never said he went alone, who's to say he didn't go with a friend, with the friends parents? Think about all possibilities before posting. 2. The "Love Liam" is kinda crossed out by the fact that Liam pretty much screwed Maddie by doing this.

    • Zack and Cody scream together twice in this episode in exactly the same way.

    • When Esteban is holding the baby in the Yoga room, it has no arms and looks like a dummy.

    • When Carey is tipped over on the floor with her feet crossed, she should have just uncrossed her feet to get back up, which wouldn't have been too hard.

    • When there is a close up of the sugar stick dust it is facing the audience's way as you can tell when you see the sugar stick dust in a later shot. It really should be facing the way Maddie, Zack and Cody are looking.

    • How would Randall know that you can track one walky talky down with another one, because when they find the walky talky there is a rose for Maddie, but she wouldn't have found it without the walky talky.

    • When the shot is facing at Esteban when he is at the check in desk changing the baby's nappy. The baby starts to pee, then the shot changes to the man watching, then the baby stops. Then when the shot goes back to Esteban the baby is still peeing.

    • Zack and Cody obviously think the same sometimes as they both count exactly the same. "1...2...3...4,8,9,10".

    • A part of this episode is in the opening credits when Cody hiding behind the table with the net.

    • When Cody is rocking the infant look close and you will see it's not a baby or a doll! It's a teddy bear!

    • In real life Moises Arias who plays Randall is 12 years old, but on the show he has to be about 7 years old.

    • Maddie reveals her brother's name is Liam; he actually makes an appearance in the episode, "Not So Sweet 16".

    • In this episode, Zack says 'do you know anything that doesn't involve decapitating poultry?'; but if Zack is as dumb as they make him out to be, would he even know the meaning of 'decapitating'?

      Edit: With all the violent games Zack and Cody play, he most likely learned it from them.

    • When Randall's mother is talking to Mr. Moseby, Randall's hair is re-gelled.

    • In the opening credits, it shows Zack and Cody with the same clothes from this episode, and Zack has his hands on his head, but in the episode there is not a scene that shows Zack with his hands on his head.

    • The blue monkey that the kids threw at Zack and Cody is the same one from the That's So Raven episodes, "Five Finger Discount" and "Four's a Crowd".

    • When the kids are taking a nap, you can tell they are awake.

    • When London walks into the Lobby after Cody spilled cans on the floor, she is holding a can in her hand. In the next shot, it is gone.

    • Maddie: If you're going to help, don't act like children, in front of the children!

    • Randall: Hey toots! It looks like we have a date tomorrow!

    • Maddie: I'm sorry Mr. Moseby but I had to leave for a family emergency, and I had to leave Esteban in charge! Esteban: And I had to take care of everything you put me in charge for, so I had to leave Zack and Cody in charge! Zack: Which means this is clearly your fault, Mr. Moseby. Cody: But rest assure.

      Mr. Moseby: Welcome to my world.

    • Esteban: Ah, Mr. Moseby. I hope the children did not disturb you.
      (Mr. Moseby glares)

      Mr. Moseby: Madeline, what is the meaning of all of this?!
      Maddie: Oh, well, it's a yoga class and people come here to relax.
      Mr. Moseby: Oh, that's not what I meant!

    • London: Are you feeling relaxed now, Moseby? Mr. Moseby: (in an uncomfortable position) Not really. But I have lost the feeling in both my legs. I really think we should stop. London: I won't let you stop, just like when you wouldn't let me stop when you taught me the alphabet. Mr. Moseby: But that took 14 years! London: And now I know my ABDs.

    • Esteban: This stinks. (picks up baby) This really stinks.

    • Mr. Moseby: May I please go now?
      London: Moseby, stop resisting. Just try it. Cross your legs, close your eyes, take deep, slow breaths. Now, clear your head of all thoughts.

    • London: Could I make a suggestion? Tia: If it's another comment about my split ends, I would prefer you didn't. London: It's not. It's about your lousy yoga technique. (pause) London: And your split ends. Tia: Before I taught yoga, I was a female Golden Glove champion. London: So what? All my gloves are golden. Tia: I'm trying to teach a class here! London: You're trying, but not succeeding.

    • Tia: Let's start with a Bhastrika breathing technique.
      London: (laughs) Where'd you get that, the back of a cereal box? (laughs)
      Tia: Excuse me?
      London: Well, it's just when I was taught yoga the right way, we always began with a Bhramari breathing technique. (winks)
      Tia: I'll have you know I have been teaching yoga for 20 years.
      London: (coughing) Badly.
      Cary: I'm relaxed, but I am entertained.

    • Johnny: Do you like coloring?
      Cody: I sure do, little one. When I was in first grade, I won a free ice cream sundae for my work on the Enchanted Pony Island coloring book.
      Johnny: You're weird.
      Zack: He's got you pegged.
      (Johnny kicks Cody)
      Cody: Ow! Little boy, it's not nice to kick people in the shin!
      (Johnny stomps on Cody's foot)
      Cody: Ow! Look, kid, I know Santa, and you just made the naughty list!
      Johnny: I'm Jewish.

    • Randall: Maddie, I hurt my finger again. Can you kiss it?
      Maddie: Randall, I've already kissed it five times.

      Randall: (to Johnny) She wants me.

    • London: Moseby, has my new yoga mat arrived?
      Mr. Moseby: I'm busy, London!
      London: Someone needs to relax.
      Carey: Please, he's never relaxed a day in his life.
      Mr. Moseby: Oh, not true. I was very relaxed before you and the twin tornadoes moved in.
      Carey: You leave my tornadoes out of this!

    • Carey: I'm so pleased that you boys care about the environment.
      Zack: Hey, recycling cans is important, and I love this planet. And I want our children to live in a better place.
      Cody: Maddie's not here.
      Zack: Oh, then you carry this junk.

    • Esteban: Maddie, your Granny is doing the limbo in the lobby in her pajamas.
      Maddie: Again?

    • Mr. Moseby: There's an old lady in Pajamas doing the limbo in the lobby?

    • Zack: Did I ever tell you that you look pretty when you're mad.
      Maddie: Well then I must be gorgeous because I am furious!
      Zack: Hey. I would never let you down. You'll be so impressed when you see how this great father-to-be has corralled these little suckers.

    • Zack: I love you Cody.
      Cody: I love you Zack.

    • Zack: Where can they be?
      Cody: I don't know, but look at this.
      Zack & Cody: (Reading the sign) HA, HA, HA, Turn around
      (Both turn around)
      Cody: Incoming!
      (Little kids throw the toys)
      Randall: Suckers!

    • (At the Yoga Studio)
      Mr. Moseby: I can't talk right now! I'll get in trouble with the teach-
      (London is in his face)
      Mr. Moseby: er.
      (London makes the sign with her fingers that she is watching him)
      (Mr. Moseby puts his cellphone away. Then he quickly takes it out again)
      Carey: Teacher! Mr. Moseby is text messaging!
      London: Don't make me come over to that mat!
      Carey: Moseby's in trouble.
      Mr. Moseby: No I'm not. The cellphone is in my pocket on vibrate.
      (Mr. Moseby's leg starts vibrating.)

    • Zack: Aww, you have a little crush on Maddie! That's so cute!
      Randall: I bet I have more armpit hair than you!
      Cody: Everyone has more armpit hair than him!
      Zack: Hey! They're blonde and they're hard to see!
      Randall: Yeah, all two of them!

  • NOTES (18)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Mr. Moseby says "Mama Mia", which is a name of a famous Broadway show.

      In this episode, Estaban sings a lullaby that he sings to Dudley. It goes.
