When Zack watches Cody "the girl" dancing, he shouts out "She wouldn't" then sees the sign for 2000 dollar award and shouts out "He's a genius!" There are people just in front of him. They should've easily been able to hear him and figured out that Cody wasn't Tyreesha.
It doesn't make sense that Zack would have stripped Cody before locking him in the closet. Zack is wearing different clothes when he skateboards in the talent show than Cody was wearing when he was threatening to drop out of the competition.
It is obvious that the person doing the skateboarding is not Dylan Sprouse, but an adult.
This is the third time Skyler Samuels has played a mean girl. The first time was in "That's So Raven" as Chrissy, the second time was in "Drake & Josh" as Ashley Blake, and her fourth and most popular was in "Wizards of Waverly Place" as Gigi.
Zack and Cody need new bikes, and they need new bikes again in "Moseby's Big Brother".
Parts of this episode are in the opening credits: when Cody spins Zack around and says "Oh Zack". And when London has a crown on her head when watching the competition.
We learn that Cody wears pantyhose when doing the catwalk.
If you look closely at Cody when he's talking to Rebecca on the phone as Tyreesha, Cody is mouthing out her line.
Mr. Moseby comes into the dressing room and talks to Brianna's Mom about the "rose-colored candies." However, in the next scene, when the pageant coordinator comes in telling them to get ready, both Mr. Moseby and Brianna's Mom are gone.
You can clearly see a camera in a mirror before Zack shoves Cody in the closet.
In this episode, Zack and Cody say their bikes are tricycles. However, in 'Grounded on the 23rd Floor' they show an image of a bike in their suite when Carey goes to answer the door.
When Cody hurries to put the wig on to fool Mr. Moseby, a bit of hair from the wig gets bent under the headband. In the next shot, his wig is on perfectly.
When London walks into the hotel room where the sleepover is, Cody (as Tyreesha) turns around to look at London, then turns back and you hear Cody say "London!" but his lips aren't moving.
Cody's sandal falls off his left foot, then they show it off the left.
Rebecca comes back from getting her mom's earrings, we see her listening to Zack and Cody talking, wouldn't she have heard Cody talking like a boy and Zack saying how they were just in it for the money?
Zack and Cody are talking in the dressing room after the first modeling competition, there are contestants in the dressing room also, then just before Rebecca comes back, they show behind them and no one is there.
London's hair is long and wavy in this episode but in Hotel Hangout, her hair is a little bit above her shoulders, layered and straight and it's because it is fake hair (which she mentions in some of the other episodes, in which her hair is really long).
In the scene right before the talent contest, how is it that there are no contestants in the dressing room? Wouldn't girls who have already gone on be in there, waiting for results?
In the scene where Cody takes off Zack's wig and reveals Zack's true identity, you first see Cody's sandal fall off. In the next shot, he's sitting Indian style with the sandal on, but after that he is suddenly barefoot again as you see his bare sole. Finally the next shot his sandal is back on his foot.
Mr. Moseby says that one of them (Zack) was wearing a dress, but it's a skirt like Carey says just after that.
During the talent competition Brianna drops her baton and then goes to pick it up, but when she stands up the baton isn't in her hand.
Cody: (quickly) I'm sorry but when I meet new people, I get nervous. And I talk and seem to ramble on and on. You'd think I'd know better considering I know I do it, but I just can't seem to stop.
Zack: Ok, this thing is a total wash-out; the girls are all stuck up, phony...
Cody: Don't talk about her (Rebecca) like that! She's sweet and she's pure and everything that's good about life.
Zack: Cody, you just met her!
Cody: And yet, I know all I need to know about her...
Zack: Oh yeah, what's her name?
Rebecca: So I guess this is goodbye.
Cody: (Starts talking fast) Yeah, bye. I hate to say goodbye, 'cause you know we just met and your gonna be leaving and it's like--
Rebecca: Its ok. (Kisses Cody and leaves)
Cody: SO MUCH BETTER THAN A BIKE!
Rebecca: (After Cody offers to help her with her bags) That's really nice of you, but I'm not supposed to talk to strangers.
Cody: Oh, it's okay, I'm not that strange---except for when I get really nervous, I can't stop talking, which is odd because I'm aware of it, and you'd think I'd know better, but for some strange reason...
Rebecca: ...Alrighty then!
(Brianna and her mom push their way to the front desk with rude "Excuse Me!" comments)
Brianna's Mom: (Southern accent) I need to speak to the manager (rings desk bell) right away.
Mr. Moseby: Marion Moseby at your service.
Brianna's Mom: Well, Maryann, my Brianna is the odds-on favorite to win this year's Universal Mini-Miss beauty pageant.
Mr. Moseby: I've already started working on your personal requests: foot roller, high wattage makeup mirror, and a bucket of fried possum fingers.
Brianna's Mom: Thank you. (Honking from outside) 'Scuse me, my house is double parked.
Cody: I can't believe I thought a girl would be more useful than a bike.
Zack: It's okay, buddy. We all make mistakes.
Brianna's Mom: Look Girls it's little Ty-read-a.
Brianna's Mom: Like it matters.
Tim: Tyreesha's hero is George Washington... Carver.
Mr. Moseby: Oh, nothing out of the ordinary. Your boys are attempting to destroy my hotel again, but with a new twist. One of them is wearing a dress.
Cody: (Talking to Tyreesha on the phone) A slumber party?
Zack: No I'm putting my foot down on this one!
Cody: I'll be there.
Zack: Apparently you don't understand the foot down concept!
Tyreesha: I'm going to Science Camp
Tyreesha's Mom: Where did I go wrong?
Cody: I'm sleeping over at Tapeworm's tonight.
Carey: (To Zack) And you aren't?
Zack: Uh, no, we got in a fight.
Carey: You and Tapeworm?
Cody: Me and Zack.
Carey: (To Cody) Are you wearing lipstick?
Zack That's what the fight was about. I put lipstick on him while he was taking a nap.
Carey: That wasn't very nice. And that's not your shade.
Zack: I told you.
Maddie: I hate beauty pageants.
Carey: I know. I never won one, either.
Maddie: The point is, they reward girls for being shallow, plastic robots. What kind of superficial airhead thinks that's cool?
London: Isn't this cool?
Maddie: Oh, that kind.
Brianna's Mom: You know, these rose-colored candies are horrible.
Mr. Moseby: That's soap, madam.
Brianna's Mom: Well, then they're pretty dang good.
Breanna's Mom: Marian, where can I dump my port-o-potty?
Mr. Moseby: If you will excuse me, I have to help the Queen with her throne!
Brianna's Mom: Maryann, I'm just letting you know I am not paying for this movie cause I didn't like it.
Mr. Moseby: I'll waive the fee Madam, I understand what it's like to have to look at something utterly repulsive.
Cody: Bring it on!
Zack: So take off the dress 'cause I can't hit a woman.
Rebecca: So, Tyreesha, what do you want to be when you grow up? Cody: (Is acting as Tyreesha for the whole scene) Oh, I'm gonna be a hockey player. (All the girls look at him funny) Cody: Or a princess! Whichever pays better. Rebecca: I'm going to open a free animal shelter for underprivilged pets. Cody: I think that's beautiful. Rebecca: Thanks! I need to start saving for vet school now. (Whispering) That's the only reason why I'm dong the pageant. (Stops whispering) So, what are you doing it for? Cody: Oh, I'm doing it so I can buy some bikes. (Rebecca looks at him sadly) Cody: For underprivileged pets!
Cody: Hey! This is the only way I can be with Rebecca, and I'm gonna take it!
Zack: No! You'll blow our cover and ruin our chances for new bikes!
Cody: Tyreesha can do it!
Zack: (In a girly voice) No, Tyreesha can't!
Girl: What did you want to be when you were little, London?
London: A heiress. And I did it! Yay me!
Maddie: It takes a special kind of person to be born rich.
London: (Touched) Thank you!
Brianna: Rebecca, you dress is so darling. It's just long enough to hide your scrawny, little chicken legs.
Cody/Tyresshea: HEY BACK OFF! I-I mean why can't we all just be nice to each other?
Brianna: You are new!
Rebecca: Thanks. Everyone else has been kinda mean. Except for the person who sent me these flowers, but they didn't sign the card.
Cody/Tyreesha: That was me. (Rebecca looks at him funny) Uh, me brother Cody. Argh, I'm a pirate.
Cody: I'm sweating in places I never sweated before.
Girl: So, do you know Orlando Bloom?
London: London's talking!
Zack: So, if I guess your name, do I win a kiss?
Brianna: Aw! You're so adorable and so completely out of your league. (She walks off)
Zack: I'm sorry for being a selfish greedy goofball.
Cody: No, you're not greedy.
(Cody mumbles incoherently.)
Rebecca: I'm sorry, I don't speak Vietnamese.
Tim: Hi Carey. Carey: Hi Tim. Tim: Sorry I missed your show last night. I had some socks that just HAD to be folded. Carey: I did three encores. That's when you sing more because they want you too. Woman: Miss Carey how would you like to do a song duet with Mr. Tim? Tim: When pigs fly. Carey: (To Tim) You fly? Mr. Moseby: Of course Ms. Martin would be glad to oblige such a guest who brings so much business to the Tipton Hotel. Carey: Apparently it would be my pleasure.
Zack: Dude you so are gonna win those bikes!
Cody: No I'm not!
Zack: Come on you gotta have confidence. You're such a loser. What's wrong with you?
Zack: He's out of his mind!
(Zack looks at the sign that says that you will win money.)
Zack: He's a genius! Yay Tyreesha! You go girl!
Cody: From now on, it's just you and me.
(Rebecca comes walking towards Zack & Cody)
Rebecca: Cody, can I talk to you?
Cody: Buzz off bike boy! (Pushing Zack out of the way)
Maddie: Orlando Bloom likes smart girls. (Looks at the rest of the girls, they look at her.)
Maddie: I know he does. I just know it! (Looks at girls again and leaves.)
London: He doesn't.
Cody: Hey, you remember my brother, Cody?
Cody: Cody. You're Cody!
Carey: Who's Tyreesha?
Cody: This new weather person. She is so wrong. 40% humidity? I don't think so.
Carey: The TV's off.
Zack: Yeah, we turned it off. We're sick of her lies.
Carey: What's wrong with your own bikes?
Zack: Mom their tricycles.
Carey: We can't afford bikes right now, its either that or food. No forget I gave you that option.
Zack: Great now we're stuck here with nothing to do. This is probably the most boringest hotel in the history of boring hotels.
Cody: Oh Zack. (Cody turns Zack to a group of girls)
Zack: I love this hotel!
Carey: (Concerned tone.)Zack, why are you wearing a skirt?
Zack: I did it so we can win money for bikes
Carey: (Sighs with relief.) Oh, thank goodness!
Rebecca: (Grabs Zack) Your a boy?
Cody: (Grabs Zack) Your a boy?
