  • Pretty nice

    9.5
    Zack finds out he failed English, and therefore will not graduate middle school. So he tries to fake to not disappoint his parents. Meanwhile, Maddie is hired as a counselor for a camp, but the girls she must look after are viscous, and Holly from Have A Nice Trip is one of them. This was good. Kind of weak, but the good heavily outweighs the bad.
  • Awesome premiere to the worst SLOZAC season

    10
    Graduation is one of my favorites from Season 3, despite being part of the worst season. That being said, this season had a few good points. One is that Zack fails school and so attends Summer School. The next episode actually shows us that and Maddie's career of camping actually goes on for many episodes.



    Anyways, Zack's part was funny. He was actually hilarious and I thought his scheme during the graduation to get his name called out was hilarious. This is the real Zack Martin! Cody was hilarious and him getting stomped by Barbara was hilarious. Kurt's moments in this episode are awesome and so makes a perfect premiere. Maddie's plot also had great moments and I thoroughly enjoyed the episode Overall!moreless
  • Great Start To The {IMO} Worst Season

    9.5
    In this episode, Zack and Cody and their class graduate 8th grade, but Zack gets some news: he failed English and therefore will not graduate. He tries to tell Carey, but it turns out their Father, Kirk, is coming for a surprise. So, at the night of the graduation, Zack feigns a fake diploma to make it look like he graduated. But at the end he feels guilty about what he had done so he tells the truth, and how he must go to summer school now.



    Overall grade from me would be about a B-, it was a good premiere for the {IMO} worst seasonmoreless
  • Great strt for the season

    Graduation day is here! However, Zack found out that he failed English and had to go to summe..summe... summer school. But he had to lie his way because his mum made an effort to bake a cake, his dad skipped his concert for him and he feels guilty about it. Meanwhile, Maddie becomes a counselor in Camp Heaven on earth or hell on earth with mean campers.

    This episode was really hilarious! i enjoyed it because of its original and unique jokes. the father was hilarious during the graduation and when he was talking about the bikini girl.

    Great episode which is going to lead to a great season :)moreless
  • This was a great episode.

    This is a great episode when Zack and Cody graduate. Especially when Zack was having trouble pronoucing summer school that was the best and I really liked that the most. Zack finds out he has to go to summer school. It was really cool how he faked the whole thing that he graduated that was the best also and also how Barbara was stepping on Cody's feet and when they were at there suite having the party Barbara stepped on Cody's foot and he had some special shoes and it hurt Barbara's foot that was also funny and I liked it because it was silly and at the end of this episode Kurt laughed at the woman in the Bikini that was also really funny and I laughed at that the most.moreless

    • Barbara: Cody, I'm sorry I got upset before. After all, I creamed you in the math competition and you didn't get mad.
      Cody: Well, I wouldn't say creamed. But it doesn't matter, because I annihilated you at the spelling bee. And by the way, that's annihilated with 2 Ns and an "h".

      Zack: Uh...that Dad wasn't gonna be here to see me graduate. But it's all good now! (the cake on the ceiling falls on Zack's face)

    • Cody: Now, what you need is tell the truth and promising to do well in summer school.
      Zack: You're right. Honesty is the best policy. Give me that water. (puts water on his cheeks) Mom's a sucker for a sob story. Dead puppy, dead puppy, dead puppy. OK, let's do this.

    • Sister Dominick: Wait until you see your cabin.
      Maddie: (opens the cabin door and it falls down)
      Sister Dominick: Oh, I must get this fixed, (Flick off dusts on the table and it falls down, too) and that.

    • Cody: Whoever gets speech, the winner kisses the loser.
      Barbara: Ok, it's gonna to be you.
      Cody: No, it's gonna to be you.
      Mr. Forgess: OK I found it. And this year valedictorian is Cody Martin.
      Cody: Yes, I knew it. (Prepares for being kiss by Barbara)
      Barbara: (tramples on his feet)
      Cody: Ow, ow
      Zack: Ah, young love.

    • Barbara: Oh Cody, I just know it's going to be you.

    • Mr. Forgess: Lady and gentleman at the graduating class, it is my honor to announce this year valedictorian. OK, who took the envelope, anybody?

    • Sister Dominick: Oh, well, I guess I'm stuck with you Maddie. Just take a look at this.
      Maddie: Camping on Earth. Oh my goodness! It's beautiful, is it that a waterfall
      Sister Dominick: Yes, It flows into a sparkling lake.
      Maddie: I've never been that camp, and now I'm gonna get pay to go.
      London: (sucks her forefinger and turns it around)

    • Sister Dominick: Now I come here to talk to you about the camp counselor job for the summer.

      (Maddie and the other girls clap)

      Sister Dominic: Ohhh, I think I just had a baby barf. (holds stomach)

    • Maddie: Just so you know, I am not going to judge you. In fact, I brought each of you a little gift. (sees that her backpack is missing) Okay, which one of you crooks stole my backpack?

    • (After Mr. Moseby gives the boys their gifts)
      Moseby: And now that you are heading off to high school, I'm sure that you realize that your wild days of shenanigans are behind you.
      Zack: Cody, are you through with your shenanigans?
      Cody: Nope. I think I'm going to "shenan-again". (Laughs)
      Moseby: Just remember, you're that much closer to being tried as adults!

    • Cody: Zack, what are you doing here? This is only for the people who are graduating.
      Zack: Well, I figured if I showed up here a plan would just hit me. BAM! Wait a minute...wait a minute...oh, I got nothing.
      Cody: Well, at least you're not trying to forge a diploma, sneak into graduation and hide from Mom the fact that you're going to summer school for six weeks.
      Zack: Genius!
      Cody: I was being facetious.
      Zack: Huh?
      Cody: (Sarcastically) Hard to believe you're failing English.
      Zack: There's only one problem. There's only enough caps and gowns for the students who are graduating.
      Cody: (Sarcastically) Gee, why don't you steal someone else's?
      (Zack kisses Cody on the head)
      Zack: Again with the genius plans! No wonder they call you the vale...vale...vale-accordion!

    • Cody: You know, Mom's really gonna be mad when she finds out you're not graduating.
      Zack: Well she can't be too mad when she finds out I saved a life.
      Cody: Whose life did you save?
      Zack: (Tries to shove an apple into his mouth) Here, choke on this.

    • London: Maddie, you know what I like about summer vacation? Not being locked up in a stuffy school until noon everyday.
      Maddie: London, some of us actually come back to school after lunch.
      London: And I suppose you go on Fridays, too. (laughs)
      Maddie: Yeah, silly me.

    • London: I'm spending the summer on my yacht. What are you doing?
      Maddie: Working here. Oh, yeah, and when I get home, I get to help mom gut fish and apply pimple cream to my dad's hairy back.
      London: Ooh, I just had a baby barf!

    • Sister Dominick: Yoo-hoo, London! So, what are we girls talking about?
      London: Fish guts and hairy pimples.
      Sister Dominick: Ooh, I just had a baby barf!

    • Mr. Forgess: We have a little problem. You seem to have failed English.

      Mr. Forgess: ...mmer school.
      Zack: Yeah, that's it.

    • Maddie: For our next activity, I was thinking we could do something to make this cabin more attractive.
      Amy: You're leaving?

    • Zack: Except that I didn't graduate, okay! (Everybody gasps) Moseby: There's a shock! (takes back his gift and steps away) Kurt: What are you talking about? Zack: I faked the whole thing. Carey: I don't, I don't understand. I mean you have a diploma...(unrolls fake diploma and sees the truth) This is a picture of a girl wearing a bikini. Kurt: Uh, she's hot! I mean...it's hot...at the beach...that's why she's wearing a bikini... Carey: Zack, why did you do this? Zack: Because you tried to bake a cake and Dad left his tour, and I didn't want to disappoint you guys again. Kurt: Don't sweat it, dude, it's okay. (Carey smacks him in the gut) OOF!!! I mean, you are so in trouble!

    • Maddie: I hate you.
      London: I have the helicopter.
