    This was overall an amazing episode! I think that Zack Martin will always cause mischief as long as he's on that boat. No matter what anybody tells him. Some hillarious parts to this episode was Woody being the only one to stand the stink bomb, seeing almost the entire cruise ship in detention. Tutweiler throwing a spit-ball at Zack and blaming it on some random student in front of her. The subplot was hillarious and cute at the same time. Bailey and Cody hardly see each other so they sneak out after curfew. But when they are about to plant one on each other guess who catches them red handed? Zack! Now this was another hillarious part to the episode. As well Mr. Moesby's handkerchief reappearing in his pocket after he uses one was also hillarious. I wonder if these writtters can write as amzing in season three, because season two so far is turining out to be one of the best. I truly believe that this series is going to rule! Also, Disney may also order season 3 and 4. if you remember The Suite life of Zack and Cody ended at season 3. But if this amazing writting keeps up, The Suite Life on Deck maybe able to beat out it's twin series. Best of luck to the cast and crew. You guys make me, my cousin and all of America smile each and every Friday night.moreless

      Bailey: Sweetie, are you okay? (puts her arm around him and strokes his face)
      Cody: I am now.
      Bailey: I can't believe we're out here under the stars, after curfew.
      Cody: I know. (laughs)

  • NOTES (1)

    • The original NBC teen comedy series Saved by the Bell did an episode similar to this one called "Screech's Birthday" in which the gang gets Screech hired as the new hall monitor, but Screech starts taking his job way too seriously and he sends all of his friends to detention.


    • Even Stevens
      There is an episode of Even Stevens when Louis Stevens (Shia Lebouf) is made Hall Monitor, is too strict and throws his friends in detention, just like Zack does.
