  • this episde is not very good.

    The Suite Life on Deck is very childlish and stupid. Because all of the episode is terrible and worst I've ever seen. Why you should do that?! I'm so tired and hate watching "Mother of the Groom". "The Defiant Ones" is very stupid, weird, and bad acting. The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and The Suite Life on Deck is very worst and bad acting. I don't know why many and many person loves The Suite Life on Deck that some episode rates only 7.1 to 9.8. So... I really don't know why. My Aunt Charyl really hates The Suite Life on Deck. She told me.moreless
  • Estaban is back, and he's getting married!

    Estaban board the ship and is getting married. I've missed Estaban, he was one of the funniest character from the Suite Life of Zack and Cody and so hoped he would return! I liked seeing Estaban dealing with some family issues, whereas his mother doesn't approve of his bride, although some parts were really corny. Zack and Cody setting up a bachelor party for him was funny, though I strongly disagree with Zack's opinion on marrige (eg. being with only one woman keeps you down), but hey, that's Zack, he's a player. I also thought Cody and Bailey disguessing marrige at their age was funny. At least Zack was able to be the supporting friend right before the wedding and get Estaban to stand up to his mother. Oh, and Estaban's mother going wild was...weird, but funny. I liked the ending where she gave Estaban her blessing and played a beautiful song for him and his bride on her guitar. Oh, and the ending with Moesby as the llama priest about to be thrown in the "volcano" hottub-LOL! Really, really good episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Esteban: London!
      London: Esteban! Thank goodness, this purse is heavy. (hands her bag to him)
      Esteban: Oh no. I am no longer a bellhop. I am now the hotel's assistant night manager.
      London: Oh good, then I don't have to tip you.

    • Cody: (to Bailey) When the time comes, we're eloping.

    • Esteban: (after getting married) And now, we throw the llama priest into the volcano!
      Mr. Moseby (the llama priest): What?!
      Esteban: Or in this case, the hot tub!
      (Esteban picks up Mr. Moseby to throw him into the hot tub while the guests cheer him on)

    • (Mr. Moseby begins reading the phrase)
      Mr. Moseby: Please join hands. We are gathered here today to join... Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De la Rosa Ramirez and Francesca Consuela Maria Gonzalez De Masa Garcia Ramone Gomez... boy, your driver's license must be huge!

    • Cody: I know your culture requires a guinea pig brisket, but I was thinking about a nice chicken cutlet.
      (Esteban's chicken clucks at him frightenedly)
      Cody: Whoops, sorry, Dudley.

    • Bailey: What a nice dress, Francesca.
      Mrs. Ramirez: Just what my Esteban needs, a woman who spends all her money on clothes.
      Francesca: Actually, I made it myself.
      Mrs. Ramirez: Now she's bragging.

  • NOTES (1)

    • In the time Mr. Moseby, Zack, Cody, and London have boarded the S.S. Tipton, Esteban has been promoted from a bellhop to the hotel's assistant night manager.


    • Señora Ramirez: (dancing) Cuchi, cuchi, cuchi!

      Esteban's mother is played by actress and comedienne Charo, whose trademark catchphrase is "Cuchi, cuchi!".

    • Esteban's Mother: Who is your father, Quasimodo?

      This is in reference to Quasimodo in Victor Hugo's classic novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (Notre-Dame de Paris), about a severely deformed man named Quasimodo who lives in the famous Paris cathedral. The name is mispronounced; the "qu" should be pronounced with a hard K sound (KA-si-MO-do).

    • The title of this episode parodies the 1950 movie Father of the Bride, with a remake version in 1991.
