  • Notes

    • This episode was intended to be the pilot of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. There several details that differ from other episodes, as being a layout for the series:

      *It's explained descriptively that Zack and Cody live in the hotel because their mom works there as a singer.

      *The Martin's suite has a carpeted floor, instead of a tiled. The furniture is different too.

      *Maddie and London act as if they have only known each other for a short time now.

      *When London comes back from Paris, she remarks on how since she had been away, Maddie had been promoted to being the hotel's candy counter girl, meaning Maddie had just started the job.

      *Maddie wears a different uniform, which includes a green vest. Maddie also has darker hair.

      *The vase in the lobby always being saved from falling is emphasized as a series running gag.
