  • Funniest episode ever

    This is the funniest episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. I liked how they showed a lot of what normal people do when they're sick like laying in bed miserable watching tv and doing whatever but I think that they should've added one thing to it and that have Carrie and Cody sleep a lot bc usually when you're sick all you wanna do is sleep. Other than that it was a pretty funny episode.moreless
  • Love it

    Zack and Cody must tend to their sick mother, when Cody gets sick also. So Zack must take care of them both. But Cody takes advantage of Zack as a servant. Meanwhile, Moseby offers the Tipton staff an "Employee Of The Month" competition. So everybody tries to sabotage each other's stations. This is one of Season 2's best after the show went to crap.
  • Easily the best Season 2 episode! Hotel Doctor FTW!

    I'm being serious here. Every character here was awesome in this episode, although if only Zack volunteered to stay back in the end. ANyways, this episode had some hilarious moments. I loved how the Tipton staff sabotaged each other and I love the two scenes with Hotel Doctor. That guy has to be one of the funniest one time characters in Disney's history. Every time I watch this episode, I laugh out really hard. Greatest Season 2 episodemoreless
  • This had to be one of the funniest and best episodes of the series. It was a favorite of mine for sure.

    In this episode Carey and Cody get sick and Zack finds himself having to take care of both of them. Also, the Tipton employees are all trying to be the employee of the month to win a trip. The employees all sabotage each other and the results are hilarious. All of my favorite characters were in this episode. Estabon, Lance, Arwin, and even Irene and Norman were in it and they had funny roles in this episode also. But the funniest part was when Zack was going crazy trying to take care of Carey and Cody. And in the end Carey ended up being the winner of employee of the month and all she wanted as her prize was a box of tissues. This was one of the funniest and best episodes of the series and it is a favorite of mine.moreless
  • Zack takes care of Carey and Cody while they're sick, and the employees compete for "Employee of the Month"!

    This is a simply funny episode! While Carey and Cody are sick in bed, Zack has to take care of them, eventhough he wants to go to a skate park. Meanwhile, the employees compete for the "Employee of the Month" award by sabotaging other employees' work stations. Examples are Irene ruining Maddie's candy cart, and someone filling the pool with grape juice while Lance was swimming. Then they start arguing when a guest wants to check into the Tipton, and Mr. Moseby has to go break them up. It's also funny when Cody blows on a kazoo when he needs Zack's help. In the end, the employees get disappointed and upset that Carey was named "Employee of the Month", despite her being sick in bed. She only got it for not bothering and annoying the guests, but more importantly Mr. Moseby.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (14)

    • Zack asks Carey to make pancakes; in other episodes, Carey isn't a good cook, so it's unlikely Zack would ask her to make pancakes.


    • When Zack comes back from the store, Cody comes out of the room and asks for his frozen fruit bars. Zack says no, and he ate them all on the bus. Why not just go to the market around the corner?

    • You would expect that a five star hotel like the Tipton would have more efficient staff. Most of them are goof balls (i.e. Lance, Arwin, the candy girl who replaced Maddie).

    • A running gag is that Arwin would exclaim that he fixed everything. Then we would hear something(s) crash, and Arwin would whisper "except that."

    • Instead of growing impatient and going to Paris by herself, London should have just told the employees that she needed someone to keep her company while she shopped.

    • At the end of the episode, when Mr. Moseby holds up a paper clips you can see a "I (Heart) Phill!", which is the actor who plays Mr. Moseby's (Phill Lewis) real name.

    • It appears that Dr Chip is a mommies boy, because his mother rings during his visit with Carey, Zack, and Cody with references mentioning that Chip was asked to take a photo of himself and Carey for proof of where he was.

    • London gets scared of Maddie when shes yells at her saying "I've never had a holiday", when in past episodes, if Maddie has raised her voice at London, she would glare at Maddie and she would quiet down.

    • When Maddie offers the woman some candy, she stands there. About a second later, she is just gone!

    • Irene pranks Maddie who pranks Patrick who pranks Lance. Norman pranks Arwin who pranks Esteban. Nobody pranks Irene or Norman. Lance and Esteban don't prank anyone.

    • Since grape juice is purple, you would notice it in a pool before you go swimming in it., also if you are in it for a while, you can't really turn purple (unless you are in it for a very long time). You also notice that Lance's hair is dry and not wet. If you got out of the pool, your hair would be wet, but Lance's hair was very dry.

    • Zack and Cody attend/attended Buckner Middle School.

    • The only set that Dylan (Zack) and Cole (Cody) were on during this episode was their suite. Their characters never leave the suite throughout the entire episode.

    • This episode's ending was longer than others.

  • QUOTES (27)

    • Carey: But I need you.
      Zack: Aw...I need you too. See ya!

    • Zack: (To Carey) Ah, ah. Don't breath on me. I can't get sick. That new skate park's opening up this weekend and I wanna try the half pipe before it's stained with blood.

    • Chip: (On the phone with his mother) No, I'm not going to ask if she's single! Her kids are like.. my age.

    • (Irene is laughing after ruining Maddie's candy cart)
      Maddie: Irene?! Oh, it's always the quiet ones!

    • Cody: (to Carey) Keep the thermometer under your tongue or we'll have to take it the other way.

    • (Cody toots kazoo; Zack runs into their room)
      Zack: What?
      Cody: Do you think you could get me some juice?
      Zack: Well, probably, considering I've done it twelve times today!
      (Carey rings bell)
      Carey: Where's my tea with honey, honey?
      Zack: Coming, Mother!
      (Zack starts to leave the room, but Cody tooting kazoo again)
      Cody: Don't forget the bendy straw.
      Zack: Oh I wouldn't dream of it!
      (Zack runs to the living room)
      Zack: I'll get your tea as soon as I get Cody some juice.
      (Zack pours Cody's juice, and Cody blows on the kazoo again)
      Zack: What!?
      Cody: No pulp.
      Zack: No problem.
      (Zack sticks his hand in cup, presumably to pull out the pulp)
      Zack: (to Carey) You want pulp!?
      (Carey gives Zack a surprised look)
      Carey: I'm fine!

    • Cody: Are you sure you're okay? You just gave me an oatmeal sandwich!

    • Carey: Honey...
      Zack: Get your own dang honey.

    • Zack: It's not my fault all he can catch is a cold.

    • London: That is all the employees do around here. Work, work, work.
      Maddie: Call us wacky!

    • London: Maddie, I need your help and I won't take no for an answer.
      Maddie: No.
      London: Ok, I tried. (sees Esteban) OH! Esteban, can you help me?
      Esteban: Of course... (falls over because of the bags he is carrying) NOT.

    • Carey: So, Doctor Walters...
      Doctor: Call me Chip.
      Carey: I'd rather not.

    • Zack: Hey mom, how ya feeling?
      Carey: Well, I...was watching that.
      (Zack changes the channel)
      Cody: Mom, you're burning up.
      Carey: I know, I called the hotel doctor but I don't think he will be here...
      (Knock on the door)
      Voice at door: Hotel Doctor.
      Zack: Mom, Door. Oh sorry, that was insensitive of me. CODY, DOOR!

    • Arwin: I woulda moved that fast too if I still had my cape.

    • Moseby: Item number 11. Pool towels are for the guests only, they are not to be worn as capes.
      (Everyone looks at Arwin who is wearing one like a cape)
      Arwin: It makes me look like I am moving faster. Look, I'm SUPER JANITOR.
      Lance: Yeah, and I have to refold them. You know, it's not as easy as it looks.
      (Lance folds it poorly)
      Moseby: Moving ooon.

    • Chip: (Carey sneezes on his new stethoscope) EEEWW, you're getting it all boogery.

    • Esteban: Arwin, what are you up to?
      Arwin: Oh, I'm gonna automate the revolving doors.
      Esteban: (sarcastically) Oh, yeah, because last time it went so well.

    • Dr. Chip: So, who's the patient?
      Carey: That would be me, the woman lying in bed, sneezing her guts out.
      Dr. Chip: Actually, you can't really sneeze your guts out. I wrote a paper on it.
      Cody: What grade did you get?
      Dr. Chip: That's not important!

    • Patrick: (to Mr. Moseby) I would never do anything to sabotage another employee. (steps all over Maddie's candy) Never, never, never, never!
      Maddie: Hey!

    • London: Whatcha doing?
      Arwin: Oh, I'm equipping this exterior portal with an infrared trigger device, thus enabling it to open automatically without the need for human interface.
      London: Whatcha doing?
      Arwin: Stuff. (laughs)

    • Cody: Look, just because a man cooks and cleans doesn't mean he can't be macho and tough. (takes a drink out of Carey's cup)
      Zack: Hey, you're drinking out of Mom's sicky cup.
      (Cody screams in a very high-pitched voice)
      Zack: Yeah, that's macho and tough.

    • London: Maddie, I really need your help and I won't take no for an answer!
      Maddie: No.
      London: Okay, I tried.

    • London: Hey, what's everybody doing?
      Maddie: Talking about work.
      London: Eww! (leaves)

    • Carey: (to Zack & Cody) Sit down for breakfast. We're having oatmeal and toast. (sneezes on the toast) On second thought, we're just having oatmeal.

    • Carey: Can you get me the cough syrup?
      Zack: Here you go.
      Carey: This is maple syrup.

  • NOTES (13)


    • Romeo Must Die:


      Arwin's lines are close related to DMX's lines in the movie Romeo Must Die (2000):


    • Buckner Middle School could be an allusion to Bill Buckner. He was the Red Sox player whose infamous error led to the Sox losing the 86' World Series.
