  • Quite amusing

    7.0
    The Tipton holds a twin convention. Zack gets Cody to date British twins. Meanwhile, London and Maddie meet fraternal twins, and Maddie gets a twin who is very unappealing but smart. It wasn't my favortie. The old men twins were exactly like Zack and Cody. That's the only part that set me off giggling.
  • Funny!

    I liked this episode quite a lot as Zack gets double dates for himself and Cody after a recent breakup with one of his girlfriends. Maddie meets one of the twins at the Tipton, who is really cute, and falls for him, but when she meets his fraternal twin, the smart one, she isn't very happy.



    All the dates went horribly wrong in this episode. It made it great!
  • This was a funny episode. Not really a favorite of mine but it was funny and pretty good.

    8.0
    I didn't really like the story about London and Maddie going out with those twin guys and Maddie gets stuck with a total goof as her date. It was o.k. but I really didn't find it funny. The story where Cody gets dumped by his girlfriend Irma was pretty funny. Zack meets Janice and Jessica and sets up a date for him and Cody with them. Cody doesn't want to go because he still misses Irma. Zack talks him into it but he has a terrible time because all he can think about is Irma. In the end Cody ends up with both Janice and Jessica. The episode was funny but it's not one of my favorites.moreless

    Mr. Moseby organizes a Twins convention being hosted by the Tipton hotel. Zack and Cody meets a british twin girls the same age as they are. Zack really wants to go out with the twins and asks Cody to come along for a double date. It turns out that Cody gets dumped by his girlfriend and he becomes really broken hearted that he doesn't want to go out on a double date. London and Maddie a good looking guy that has a twin brother, they set up a date for the night, but it turns out that the good looking guy's twin brother isn't as handsome as he is. It's a really hilarious episode, it's packed with jokes. Excellent episode.moreless
  • The Tipton is having a twin convention. Zack, Cody, Maddie, and London all have dates. Things do not turn out well.

    8.7
    In this episode, the Tipton is having a twin convention. Zack and Cody get a double date, but Cody is having less than a fun time because of his recent heartbreak. It turns out that the girls like sensitive boys, and Zack (in the final turnout) is the one who gets the "heartbreak". Meanwhile, Maddie and London also get a double date with fraternal twins Dirk and Dirk. At first Maddie didn't know that she would be dating a complete...geek. So London gets the cute guy and Maddie doesn't get him. It ends up that the not so cute guy likes London after Maddie gives the not so cute guy another chance. Confusing eh? Well it was a funny episode. Escpecially when the "cute" Dirk and London couldn't tell thier left and rights apart. Hilarious.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (16)

    • A part of this episode is in the opening credits (of Season 3): When Mr. Moseby catches the vase.

    • Twins, Jessica and Janice, were both in the audience during a taping of "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody", and both were chosen to have a recurring role for the show.

    • In the "Family Matters" episode: "Til Death Do us Apartment" Waldo is depressed when Maxine broke up with him and two girls comfort him. In this episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, the scene with Janice and Jessica comforting a depressed Cody is similar to the Family Matters episode mentioned.

    • Maddie says, "He scratched his back with his fork... and then used it!" But you can see that Dirk scratched his neck, not his back.

    • This is the second episode when the title ended with "_____ at the Tipton" The first one was "Christmas at the Tipton".

    • When Cody is cleaning the floor and Zack walks in, you can see that the appliances in the kitchen aren't plugged into the wall outlet like they usually are.

    • Maddie taking the extra strand of pasta out of London's mouth when pulling her aside was probably improvisation. It didn't seem like it was scripted and Maddie repeated her line after she started and noticed the pasta hanging out of her mouth. The audience reacted well to Maddie doing this so it was probably kept in.

    • A running gag in this episode is London and Maddie saying things at the same time when they get upset.

    • Dirk: Did you know that it takes three hours for meat to move through your intestines so the bile can churn up the gastric acid?

      Stomach acid is actually churned during the movement of the stomach. Bile is a chemical secreted by the liver that emulsifies and digests fats.

    • When London hands Moseby the money before she and Maddie go into the restaurant, you can tell that it is play money because it is white and gray; and real money is more of a green color.

    • During Zack and Cody's date, why didn't Zack just pretend to feel sorry for Cody, and the girls would have liked him.

    • When Zack walks in his suite and sees Cody cleaning. Cody says "Stop! I cleaned the table." Then Zack walks and falls and his backpack flies in the air. Cody says "I waxed the floor." The backpack is on the floor by the table. Then it's next to the chair and then it disappears.

    • When Kirk is asking Maddie for a chocolate bar, Zack is not in the background, but after she says, "You can have anything you'd like"; Zack is standing there talking to Jessica.

    • In the beginning of the episode, when Zack and Cody say "You can't keep us from our peeps!", when they do their "handshake" to the other pair of twin boys; Cody starts too soon, and isn't even looking at the other twins so that is why he messes it up.

    • Mr. Moseby is standing in front of the revolving door next to the steps, but when Dabney is racing in his wheelchair to get the apple Abner threw, Mr. Moseby is not there anymore. However, when the vase is knocked over, Mr. Moseby is there again and ready to jump to save the vase.

    • The twins (The older gentlemen in wheelchairs) dress & act like Zack & Cody (Right down to the secret handshake). This is probably what Zack & Cody will be like in sixty to seventy years.

  • QUOTES (62)

    • Zack: Come on...there are lots of fish in the sea.
      Cody: I don't want a fish...I want Irma.
      (Cody starts crying)

    • (Janice and Jessica knock on the door)
      Cody: Irma used to knock just like that! (falls on ground) Irma!!
      Zack: This time he didn't even make it to the couch.

    • (About going out with the twins)
      Cody: (to Zack) No, and because you're going to ask again, no...again!

    • Zack: So! Who's up for some video games?
      Janice: How can you play video games when your brother is in pain?!
      Jessica: Cody needs comforting, and we're here for him! (She kisses Cody)
      Janice: We think it's wonderful when boys show their emotions! (She kisses Cody)
      Jessica: Only a real man is not afraid to cry!
      Zack: Well, I'm not afraid to cry! I cry at puppies and rainbows... oh, and I watch the women's channel all the time. When Rachel broke up with Guillermo for the one legged tennis player, oh, I blubbered like a baby! I need a moment! (pretends to sob silently)

    • Dirk: Look, you don't have to say anything. I mean... I'm no Kirk. I'm not handsome, I'm not charming, I'm not funny, feel free to disagree.
      Maddie: (laughs) Hey, that was kinda funny.
      Dirk: So you think there's still a chance for me?
      Maddie: Of course. Look, you're obviously very smart. And you know more about bodily secretions than any boy I have ever met. Some day, you're going to make a great doctor.
      Dirk: Oh, I don't want to be a doctor! I wanna be a male model! (strikes a pose)
      Maddie: Really?
      Dirk: Gotcha!
      Maddie: (chuckles) See? You're not so bad once you loosen up.
      Dirk: Thanks, Maddie. You're awesome.
      Maddie: I know.

    • Cody: I miss Irma!
      Jessica: I miss Troy!
      Janice: I miss Ronald!
      Zack: So everyone having a good time?
      (Cody, Jessica and Janice start crying and Zack glares at Cody)

    • Cody: No! She was a person! Zack just said it was a gerbil because he didn't want me to ruin his date!
      Jessica and Janice: Aww!!

    • Jessica: You know Cody, it's bad to keep things bottled up inside!
      Janice: Bad, really!
      Jessica: Really bad!
      Zack: (in a British accent) Oh, not really!

    • Zack: We had some wild times also! Haven't we Codester?
      Cody: NO!

    • Dirk: Did you know? That 80 hairs fall off your head a day?
      London: Can we not talk about hair... unless it's mine?
      Dirk: Sure. We can talk about skin. Did you know that most of the dust under your bed is mostly dead skin?

    • Cody: I'm not ready!
      Zack: I understand. Only time can mend a broken heart.
      Cody: Thank you!
      Zack: You got 5 minutes. Because that's when Jessica and Janice are coming for out date!

    • Carey: Zack you are very insensitive to your brother! You shouldn't be using him for your own selfish schedule! (Turns to Cody) Don't forget to pre-soak!

    • Carey: Cody, do you want to take a break?
      Cody: No....cleaning takes my mind off....Irma!
      Carey: Oh okay...the bathroom is a good place!

    • Zack: There are always fish in the seas!
      Cody: (Starts Crying) I don't want a fish! I want Irma!

    • Cody: Mom I can't decide what to wear!
      Carey: Here's a thought. How about some pants!

    • Jessica: There, there sweetie cry on my shoulder.
      (Cody goes to her shoulder pouting)
      Janice: No he wants to cry on my shoulder.
      (Janice brings Cody to her shoulder)
      Jessica: Well he has two eyes doesn't he.
      (Jessica brings Cody back to her shoulder)

    • Zack: Wait! Wait! Look! I'm an emotional wreck, see?
      (Zack picks up a drink and splashes it on his face)
      Zack: Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow, that was soda! Ow! Ow! Ow! Hey look, real tears!
      (Zack starts walking but he runs into the door and falls backwards onto the floor)

    • Mr. Moseby: Hope you gentlemen are enjoying your steaks!
      Abner: We're not having steak, no, we're having seafood!
      Mr. Moseby: Seafood?
      Dabney: See...
      Abner: food!
      (The two start laughing)

    • Maddie: (To Dirk) The steak is really great here.
      Dirk: Did you know that it takes three hours for meat to move through your intestines so the bile can churn up the gastric acid?
      Maddie: I think I'll have a salad.
      Dirk: Did you know--
      Everyone in the restaurant: Don't care!

    • London: Ok, so Kirk and I sit here and you guys sit way over there! (London pushes Maddie and Dirk to the other side of the table) Maddie: So Dirk, do you uh have any hobbies? Dirk: Taxidermy! I like to stuff dead things! Maddie: Who...doesn't...?

    • Cody: I dunno. Maybe you're right.
      Zack: Maybe? These girls have British accents! Even when they dump you it'll sound great!
      (Cody gives Zack a look)
      Zack: Which they won't because you're one terrific guy!

    • Zack: (To Cody) Dude! Look at you! The suite is clean but you're a mess! You need to get back out there. But you might wanna take off the apron first.

    • (Zack comes in the door from school and is about to set his backpack down on the table)
      Cody: Hey! I just polished that table!
      (Zack starts walking but he slips and falls backwards onto the floor)
      Cody: Oh, and I waxed the floor.

    • London: Kirk, tell Maddie you came over here to ask me out!
      Kirk: Actually, I just came over here for another chocolate bar.

    • Zack: So how about I show you one of Boston's most elegant restaurants? Ever had a 7 meat pizza?
      Jessica: That sounds intriguing! Or disgusting...
      Zack: It's both! So, how about it?
      Jessica: Thanks! But, I don't go anywhere without my sister, Janice.
      Zack: No problem. I'll take my vitamins!

    • (Kirk walks up to Maddie's candy counter)
      Kirk: Excuse me? Can I get a chocolate bar please?
      Maddie: (sighs and tries to look good to impress Kirk) You can have anything you want!
      Kirk: I'll have a chocolate bar please.
      Maddie: (laughs)You're a man with a purpose. I like that. So, are you a twin?

    • Abner: This hotel is boring! Dabney: Yeah! Abner: Hey Dab! Dabney: What? Abner: Go long! Dabney: Ok! (Abner throws an apple and Dabney moves forward in his wheelchair) Dabney: I got it! I got it! (Dabney catches the apple) Dabney: Touch down! (Dabney's wheelchair collides into the table holding the expensive vase on the top of it and the vase falls over and is about to roll on the ground and break) Mr. Moseby: Oh! (Mr. Moseby dives on the ground and catches the vase) Dabney: Great toss Ab! (The two do Zack and Cody's "handshake" and then wheel away) Dabney: Look out! Coming through! Abner: Dab, old man! You're slowing me down! Bob: Man! Who do those guys remind me of? Zack: Got me!

    • (London walks into a guy named Kirk)
      London and Kirk: Sorry, excuse me!
      (London and Kirk try to walk in opposite directions but bump into each other again)
      London and Kirk: Sorry, excuse me!
      (They do the same thing again)
      London and Kirk: Ehehe...
      Kirk: You go right, I'll go left.
      London: Which way's my right?
      (Kirk faces London's direction)
      Kirk: I write with my right hand, this one!

Carey: You pushed your brother into dating again, its going to be a while until he is comfortable around girls again! (Cody comes in with Jessica and Janice) Jessica: See you tomorrow at breakfast! Janice: Remember, tea and scones! (Kiss Goodbye) Cody: Pip-pip! Cheerio! Ta-ta! Peace out!! Yesss!!! Thanks Zack. If it wasn't for you, I would of never gone out there and started dating again! Instead I'd be all alone and sad. (Starts singing the British national anthem) Carey: (Whistles with Cody) Sorry..

    • Maddie: He wanted me to help him land on another girl!
      London: What a jerk!
      Maddie: Yeah, it was you!

    • London: Moseby, something's wrong! I'm seeing double!

      London: Zack and Cody are twins? Since when?
      Mr. Moseby: Oh, about 6 months ago.
      London: Ooh, we should tell them about the convention!

    • Dirk: There's this girl I met tonight that I would really like a second chance with. Do you think she might be interested?
      Maddie: She might be.
      Dirk: Good because I'm nuts about London. Can you go distract Kirk so I can ask her out? I think she's really hot. And I like 'em dumb and rich.

      (Maddie pours water all over Dirk)

      (Bob & Zack start laughing)

    • Dirk: Did you know, it takes six bags of cow manure to grow one bag of potatoes?
      Maddie: Can we please talk about something that doesn't make me... I dunno gag!

      (Maddie grabs London and drags her out of the main area of the restaurant)
      Maddie: This is the worst... oh! (There is a piece of spaghetti dangling from London's chin and Maddie pulls it off and drops it on the floor) This is the worst date of my life! I'm leaving!
      London: You can't! Look, he's not that bad!
      Maddie: He scratched his back with his fork! And then he used it!

    • Bob: Actually, I'm here because Cody doesn't have a date. Irma postponed it.
      Zack: Till when?

    • Cody: Irma's my girlfriend.
      Jessica & Janice: You were dating a gerbil!? Well, to each is own. Strange country, America.

    • Bob: I love visiting you guys. The doorman always calls me "sir."
      Zack: I hope you don't mind, but I'll still call you Sir Doofus.

    • (Maddie and London are talking to two twins and they are explaining that they are fraternal which is why they don't look alike)
      Dirk: We're fraternal twins.
      London: No you're not. You don't look anything alike!
      Dirk: That's what fraternal means!
      London: Ooh he is the smart one!
      (London pushes Maddie into Dirk)

      Carey: I'm here to help.

    • Cody: I already have a girl. Beautiful Irma.
      Zack: Your beautiful Irma happens to have more hair on her upper lip than you do.
      Cody: It's an unfortunate series of moles.
      Zack: No, it's hair.
      Cody: Moles!
      Zack: Hair!
      Cody: Moles!
      Zack: Hair!
      Cody: Moles!
      Zack: Hairy moles!
      (Cody pushes Zack into Mr. Moseby, causing him to fall)

    • Cody: (looking at other twins in the lobby) Wow, so this is what we look like to other people. It's kinda creepy!
      Mr. Moseby: You have no idea.

    • Maddie & London: There he is! That's your cute guy?! That's my cute guy! Tell her!
      Kirk: Wow did you guys rehearse?

    • Cody: (reading sign) "The Tipton welcomes twins."
      Zack: Well, well, well. Nice to see we're finally being appreciated around here.
      Cody: What would really make us feel welcome is unlimited movies and deserts.
      Zack: Ooh, and a room with a hot tub wouldn't be bad either.
      Mr. Moseby: You know what would be better? You two moving to Guatemala.

    • Zack: What a loser.
      Carey: Well, Zack, the truth is, one of you has a date tonight while the other is watching "World's Funniest Truck Collisions".
      Zack: Hello? World's Funniest!
      (Cody runs outside of his room with no pants on)
      Zack: World's funniest until I saw that.
      Cody: I can't decide what to wear.
      Carey: Here's a thought. How about some pants?

    • (After Zack pushes Cody into Mr. Moseby and Mr. Moseby wrecks The Twins Convention Sign)
      Mr. Moseby: (Holding up the letter A) I landed on my "A".

  • NOTES (39)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Zack is watching "World's Funniest Truck Collisions". This is a parody name to "America's Funniest Home Videos" where people send in their funniest moments on videotape in order to win cash prizes.

    • Bob: Irma told Kim, who told Phill, who told Ashley, who told Brenda, who told Dylan, who told Cole, who told me ... it's over. "Kim," "Phill," "Ashley," "Brenda," "Dylan" and "Cole" are the first names of all the stars in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Kim Rhodes, Phill Lewis, Ashley Tisdale, Brenda Song, Dylan Sprouse and Cole Sprouse also happens to be the exact reverse order in which they appear in the credits.

    • Jake Abel and Scott Halberstadt

      If they look familiar to you, you've probably seen:

      1. Jake Abel as "Spencer" in Go Figure.
      2. Scott Halberstadt as "Eric the Geek" on numerous episodes of Nickelodeon's Drake and Josh.

    • London & Kirk share a spaghetti noodle .

      In the famous scene from the movie "Lady & the Tramp", Tramp & Lady pick up the same spaghetti noodle & kiss when they reached the middle.

    • Zack: What they do in Boston, stays in Boston.

      It's a play on the slogan of the Las Vegas tourism board. The tag line goes "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

    • Kirk: My name's Kirk, like the captain.

      Kirk was the last name of Captain James Tiberius Kirk from the TV series "Star Trek".
