    Zack and Cody both sign up for orchestra, and a Russian violinist comes to their school and Cody's current girlfriend is supposedly in love with her. Meanwhile. London looks for a job at the Tipton. Not a fan. London's plot was like Nugget Of History. And romance is not something I'm a big fan of.
  • Fantastic episode

    The plot was strong and similar to rumours, it shows how much a relationship/individual can be affected by one rumor. I found Cody stupid to believe the rumour, but this episode worked very well,. The comedy was there,but Ifound the constant "Oh Barbara", "Oh Cody" plain annoying at the very end. That being said, its a great episode with brilliant acting so give it a go.

    I almost NEVER review. But I liked this episode so much I'm writing my first review in seven months! This is one of the finest TSL episodes ever written. The acting was outstanding, and for once the sub-plot didn't overwhelm the main story. Zack and Cody join the Cheevers High School orchestra for their fundraiser, which apparently is "The Nutcracker" (because that's what they play). Zack plays the Triangle and the Cymbals. A conceited Russian exchange student Sergi Mishkin is First Violin and is attracted to Codys GF Barbara Brownstein. The conductor's son Billy Madigan says "Sergi is putting a move on Barbara, pass it down" which finally gets to Cody as "Sergi loves Barbara and they're moving to Russia to raise llamas." Cody becomes insanely jealous. A running joke is the value of llama hair vs alpaca hair.Cody breaks up with Barbara and storms out of the rehersal as Zack plays the kettle drum to his steps. Hilarious.Back at the suite Cody plays (badly) "Ode to Joy" and yells "Puberty STINKS!" probably one of the funniest lines TSL ever has had. At the concert 2 weeks later Cody tries increasingly rediculous efforts to make up with "Ba-bar-a." When they finally re-unite a boy plays "Love Story" on an oboe and the audience cheers. Zack, who is napping in a storage room, falls thru the air vent onto the cymbals at precisly the right moment (wedging a drumstick in an uncomfortable spot) to end the concert. In the sub-plot London tries to do the employees jobs and winds up injuring most of them. She decides to do what a Tipton does best--nothing.moreless
  • A Russian musician comes to school and Barbara falls in love of him. As Cody gets jelous, he cuts with her. But when he discovers she didn't love him, he tries to come back with her. London has to try all the jobs in the hotel.moreless

    A great episode, specially when Zack practices for the orchestra (triangle, triange, gongs). My friend and I laughted for 5 minutes when he did that. It was obvious London wouldn't make any of the jobs alright, if she couldn't spell any word with more than three silabes, How could she have a job?

    Zack is a purely lazy. Who goes to another room for sleeping 30 min. while the orchestra is playing? And the ending became good: Cody gets Barbara, Zack felt from the ventilation tues and hit the gong when he had to. Another great episode for the series.moreless
  • CodyxBarbra episode. Didn't like it much.

    6.1
    Cody Martin is currently with Barbara, during music class, there is a famous Russian violinist Sergie, and he starts flirting with Barbara. One of the classmates starts a rumor that states that Barbara and Sergei are moving back to Russia and are going to sell llamas and Cody gets extremely jealous.



    It wasn't the best episode. It was more or less a relationshippy, Cody and Barbra episode who I don't really support to be together in the first place. The russian guy was new and exciting I guess. I sorta liked him sorta not. I didn't like this episode very much.moreless

    • (Mrs. Madigan screams)
      Zack: That's weird. My new math teacher said the same thing when I walked into his class.
      Mrs. Madigan: That's because there's a "Beware of Zack" poster in the teachers lounge.
      Zack: Actually, my stage name is Nasty Z, the Dark Prince of Awesome.

    • (When Cody stomps out of class, Zack plays the tympani to the beat of his stomping. Cody gives a dirty look at Zack, Zack continues to play the tympani.)
      Zack: And you got me playing the triangle!

    • Cody: You are my latka!
      Barbara: (confused) I'm your potato pancake?

    • Esteban: Hep, Hep.
      London: Hooray!

    • London: Well, I did it! I've done all the jobs in the hotel, and now I'm ready to do yours.
      Mr. Moseby: Mine? London, you can't-
      (London pulls Mr. Moseby out of his chair and sits in it)
      London: Who do I yell at first?
      Mr. Moseby: My job isn't yelling at people.
      London: So you just do it for fun?
      Mr. Moseby: (yells) No!

    • Zack: Dude you're jealous of a rumor and I am not even sure that I heard it right
      Cody: (crying) Oh, great! Now I've ruined my life by dumping Barbara, (squeaky) I have NOTHING!
      Carey: You have a family that loves you.
      Cody: (still crying) I mean something that I care about!

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • In this episode, Estaban mispronounces "help" as "hep". This could be a reference to Ricky Ricardo on I Love Lucy. He is Cuban, thus he speaks with an accent, and often mispronounces simple English words.

    • The song that the other band members play while Cody and Barbara were falling in love was Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet.

    • Zack: If that's not nerd love, I don't know what love is.

      This could be an allusion to The Naked Brothers Band song, "If That's Not Love".

    • In the beginning of the orchestra everyone was playing The Nutcracker.
