  • Easily this season's best

    Zack and Cody have a science project where bugs release in the hotel. Maddie returns from Antartica and doesn't get along with Moseby's niece, and numerous other conflicts between the Tipton staff are going on, so Moseby hires someone to discpiline everyone, including himself. It felt like Zack and Cody's plot was actually the subplot. And there's a big confusion of Maddie's location this whole season. First she was at camp, and then at the twins' school, and then Antartica. But still my favorite episode. A+.moreless
  • The best from Season 3

    One of my favorites actually. As the Tipton employees struggle to get along well with each other, Moseby books a professional to help them out. Meanwhile, Zack books a bug convention to make up to Mr Moseby, but the bugs eventually escape and the twins must track them down.

    The episode overall was awesome and it was great to see Ashley Tisdale return finally! Zack and Cody are still great and London is still as dumb and annoying as she has been all season.

    Apart from the odd bad thing, this episode is remarkable, considering Season 3 was its worst season!moreless
  • Maddie comes back from saving the penguins in Antartica but she causes a stir with Nia. The whole Tipton workers get help from Mr. Beataux to try and solve their problems.moreless

    I started to watch the episode and was glad to see Maddie back for a start, then Millicent just made it all better by screaming and fainting. However, me being Scottish and then the whole incident with Mr. Moesby not being able to understand the Scottish bagpipe band was a bit offensive. I got even more into the episode as it progressed, i loved the picking up Millicent with two finger bit and almost split my sides when they stepped into each other's shoes. The best immitation was when Carey pretended to be Patrick and I haven't laughed so much in ages! Overall this was by far the best episode of the Suite Life!moreless
  • great episode

    Maddie returns to Boston after her far away trip to antartica. But her return is not so merry after she finds out that Nia wouldn't give her back her shift. But everyone else working at the tipton are not getting along well with each other. So to keep everything in control, Mr. Moseby hires a professional councilor who will help patch their relationships among the staff. This is a really hilarious episodes. The jokes were so funny, each scene had something funny in it. The writers really did a good job with this one. It was awesome, I can't wait for the next one.moreless
  • Maddie is back! finally!!!!

    Maddie (Ashley Tisdale) is finally back!, this is a really good episode because we finally see all of the main characters together. All the scenes where funny, and that is why I love this series, because it is always making you laugh. Zack and Cody's story was really funny, and we see that Zack is still "in love" with Maddie, which is really cute. We can also see that London loves Maddie, even though they are really different. The whole "team tipton" thing was really funny, because we can see what they think of each other... but at the end we see that everyone loves each other. I would watch this episode a 1000000 times!...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (11)

    • It doesn't make sense that Cody is using a wooden box to capture the wood eating bugs. In the box the bugs aren't trying to get out by eating through it, like they did with the door of Zack & Cody's suite, after accidentally being released by Zack.

    • goof: When Maddie, London, Nia, Mr. Moseby and others saw the bugs, they (bugs) looked different, than when Cody and Zack spotted them on the corridor.

    • It doesn't make sense that Maddie would still be cold from Antarctica. From the time she traveled from Antarctica to Boston, she would've been warm.

    • This is the second time Esteban imitates Mr. Moseby. The first time is in "Smart and Smarterer" (Season 1).

    • In the scene where the bugs enter the room and everyone starts to panic, Patrick gets up and steps on one of the bugs, but the bug isn't crushed or hurt. For this episode, all the bugs were animated.

    • In earlier episodes, London knew Milicent and Nia's names, but at the beginning of this episode, she simply calls them "Nervous Maddie" and "Cranky Maddie".

    • At the beginning of this episode, Maddie argues with Nia about Maddie's shift, which apparently Nia took over. But even though everyone makes up at the end (after the disastrous "Team Tipton" exercise), Maddie and Nia never figure out how to divide up their shifts.

    • It doesn't make sense that Maddie went to Antarctica, and came back with a tan. And also, her hair was really white in this episode.

    • Maddie is back from Antartica from saving the penguins. Ashley Tisdale's (the actress who plays Maddie) favorite exotic animal is the penguin.

    • This is the first episode in a while where Zack finally flirts with Maddie again.

    • Zack is still not over his crush on Maddie.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Nia: You must be Maddie. London's told me a lot about you. (shakes Maddie's hand). Your hair isn't that hideous!

    • Mr. Butteax: Okay guys, we're going to do a simple exercise about trust, we are going do the classic fall back and catch technique. Now everyone pick a partner...
      Arwin: Ooh! Dibs on Carey, Ha ha I picked Carey, you've gotta be faster than that.
      London: I really don't trust any of these people so I'm just going to catch myself, here I go... (Thumps, then gasps) I didn't catch myself.

    • Arwin: Come on Millicent, there's no "I" in team.
      Millicent: There is in injury.
      Nia: Look I can either lift you up with two fingers or I can knock you down with five.
      Millecent: Lift away!
      (everyone then lifts her up with two figners)
      Mr. Butteax: You see what can you acheive when you all work together.
      Millicent: This is so exciting I'm actually having fun!... Wee.

    • Maddie: (shivering) Hey, g-g-guys, I'm b-b-b-back.
      (audience can be heard cheering)

    • Mr. Butteax: Okay, people. The best way to understand a co-worker is by stepping into their shoes.
      London: But, I'm a dainty size three, Maddie has the feet of Sasquatch!
      Maddie: He means we act like someone else to see their point of view. For example, I'll be you! (immitating London) Mint me, candygirl! Even though you're busy, forget the other customers because I'm more important! Yay me! (claps hands)
      London: (immitating Maddie) Sorry, London. I can't right now, because I have to tell you a boring story about one of my weird relatives. Do me a favor and pretend to listen, would you? While I go on, and on, and on wearing my really ugly clothes!
      Nia: (immitating Maddie) Oh, and let's not forget, since I'm back from saving the penguins, I want everyone to drop what they're doing and do it the way I want it!
      Millicent: (immitating Nia) And, I'm Nia. I can make you do anything I say because I'm tough and can crush you like a grape! (Nia gets mad at Millicent) I was talking about another Nia.
      Nia: Uh-huh.
      Carey: Ooh! I'll do Patrick! (immitating Patrick) Well, (fixes her hair) I suppose I could get you to finish dinner in time to see Carey Martin's show, but that would mean working hard. (everyone else gasps)
      Arwin: (thinking he is immitating Estaban) Mr. Moseby! Mr. Moseby! Can I take something that's working perfectly well and do some conveluded thing to it until it breaks? (laughs)
      Carey: Arwin, I don't think you're supposed to immitate yourself.
      Arwin: Oh, I thought I was doing Esteban.
      Mr. Moseby: No, no, no. Esteban is more like this. (immitating Esteban) Oh, Mr. Moseby! Oh, can I have a day-off? Because, my chicken has chicken pox, and I can't feed him chicken soup, 'cause he's a chicken! Did I mention the fact that I have a chicken?
      Esteban: (immitating Mr. Moseby) Oh, very well! Good luck with that! Oh, keep carrying those bags, Esteban, like a pack mule! While I sit in my office talking to my mommy!

    • Maddie: There's a giant spider on your head!
      Zack: I feel the same- wha, wha, wha, wha? Ah, get it off! Get it off! (throws the spider in the box; running while rubbing his head) Mommy! Spider! (Maddie looks at spider in the box)
      Maddie: Shouldn't you tell him the spider's off his head? (Zack runs back)
      Zack: Ahhh!
      Cody: (to Maddie) Maybe later.

    • Mr. Moseby: (imitating Esteban after all the lights go out) This is a disaster!

    • Cody: (sniffs Zack's shirt) Cologne... fresh shirt? Wow, Maddie should come home from Antarctica more often.
      Zack: Yeah, well, my woman's back, and I'm ready to resume our relationship.
      Cody: You mean the one where you hit on her and she laughs?
      Zack: No. The one where she says, "You know, you look a lot like Zack, only older and a lot better looking."
      Cody: Clearly the cologne has gone to your head.

    • Mr. Moseby: All right, boys, let's talk.
      Zack: Okay, you know, I think the Red Sox have a pretty good chance this year.
      Mr. Moseby: I meant about the bagpipes!
      Zack: Sorry. In my defense, I didn't know it was a bagpipe. I thought it was the new Super Squirter Octopus, the one with 8 nozzles.
      Cody: In my defense, I'm not Zack.

    • London: (about Millicent) Moseby, Moseby, Nervous Maddie just passed out again! (about Nia) Cranky Maddie isn't at the counter! (sees Maddie; gasps) Hideous Hair Maddie, you're back! (hugs Maddie)
      Maddie: Suddenly I miss the frozen tundra.

    • Zack: Hey baby did you just break wind, cause your blowing me away.

  • NOTES (6)


    • When Zack was talking to Maddie, Cody saw a huge spider crawling to his head, and Zack hit it off him and still running, even so that the spider is not on his head. This scene can be reference to a scene in Madagascar.

    • When Zack says to the man who was going to stay at the Saint Mark about the trees around it coming alive and televisions eating people he was most likley refering to the 1982 movie "Poltergeist".
