  • Quotes

    • (Cody opens the bathroom door, closes it, then faints)
      Woody: Ca-holy? Mr. Toledo?

    • Bailey: I just can't go home now, I can't. You have to promise you won't tell any one I'm a girl. (gets down on her knees and takes Zack by the hand) Please, please, I'm begging you.
      Zack: (looks down at her hands, then looks her in the face and smiles) Don't worry, it'll be our little secret. (pats her hand, then she smiles at him)

    • Cody: Dude, you're a girl!
      Bailey: I am? That explains so much.

    • Carey: (about sending Cody and Zack to Seven Seas High) It was a great opportunity and I could afford it with my employee discount. How could I say no?
      Mr. Moseby: Like this. Noo!
      (Mr. Moseby jumps into the ocean)
      Carey: He took that better than I thought.

    • Zack: Let's play pool while Woody and Cody work out their issues.
      Woody: We have issues?
      Cody: No, no, no. Yes.

    • Bailey: (about octopus) They're highly intelligent and can be trained to open jars.
      Zack: (is trying to open jar) Stupid jar!
      Woody: We should get a hammer!

    • Cody: We fell overboard!
      London: Why is the ocean so hot!
      Mr. Moseby: Probably because it's a hot tub.
      London: Why is there a hot tub in the middle of the ocean?!

    • London: I hate this stupid sea school and I hate this stupid boat!
      Zack: Hey, Galaxy Raider game is open!
      London: I love this stupid boat!

    • (Zack picks up Bailey's bra out of her suitcase)
      Bailey (as a boy): Um, that's my girlfriend's.
      Zack: Well, I wouldn't think it was yours.

    • London: Hurry! The boat is already tipping over!
      Bailey: No, you just broke your heel.
      London: Worse!

    • Ms. Tutweiller: Bailey, I'd let you stay, but, unfortunately, we don't have a cabin to put you in.
      Zack: She can stay in my room. I'm willing to take one for the team.

    • Ms. Tutweiller: Miss Pickett, why on Earth would you masquerade as a boy?
      Bailey: Well, I... I don't know.
      Zack: Yes, you do. It was her only way to get out of Popcorn, Kansas.
      Bailey: Kettlecorn.
      Zack: Whatever. Look, this girl was meant for better things than to shuck hogs.
      Bailey: No, you shuck corn. If you try to shuck a hog, it bites you.
      Zack: Work with me.

    • Bailey: Alright, alright. I'm a girl. See, all the girls' slots for this year were filled. So, I applied as a guy. And, since my name is Bailey and I did play on the boys' baseball team, it worked. Well, it worked right up until the moment when you walked out when you were scheduled to take a shower and ruined the whole thing!
      Zack: So, this somehow is my fault?
      Bailey: Yes! Don't you knock when you leave a bathroom?
      Zack: You're lucky I was raised by a woman so this sort of irrational behavior doesn't throw me.

    • Ms. Tutweiller: Moving on. This is the state of the art marine biology lab.
      London: Which my daddy paid for! Can I go now?
      Ms. Tutweiller: No! Now, if you will all follow me, we will go up one deck to the planetarium.
      London: I don't know what that is, but my daddy paid for it! Can I go now?
      Ms. Tutweiller: No! But nothing would make me happier.

    • Zack: Oh, hey, Cody. What's going on?
      Cody: (sadly) My roommate farts classic rock.
      Zack: Cool!

    • London: But why do they call him a purser?
      Ms. Tutweiller: I don't know, but I do know that it is not his job to hold your purse.
      London: Fine. Then you hold it. (London gives Ms. Tutweiller her purse)
      Ms. Tutweiller: Oh. Good grief, what is in this?
      London: My allowance.

    • Bailey: I can not believe that you used my hairbrush to scratch your back.
      Zack: Back? Yeah, let's go with that.

    • P.A. Announcer: Attention students, classroom time will begin in five minutes.
      London: Hey, invisible voice! Five minutes does not work for me!

    • Zack: Wow, check out our schedule. 8:00 - bingo, breakfast and buffet. 9:00 - volleyball tournament and donuts. 10:00 - water sports and omelette bar. Man, I love this school!
      Cody: Zack, that's the passenger schedule. Here's the student schedule.
      Zack: Eight hours of school and then a cheese sandwich.

    • London: Gangway! London Tipton coming through! (London is riding on top of her luggage, which is on a bellhop, and rolls over Moseby's foot)
      Mr. Moseby: Oww!
      London: Wow, bumpy seas.
      Mr. Moseby: That was my foot.
      London: Well, what was it doing under my trunk?
      Mr. Moseby: Throbbing.

    • Moseby: London, so nice of you to offer to share your room with Bailey.
      London: I wasn't offering, I was gloating. Here's a diamond necklace, drop out.
      Bailey: I wouldn't drop out for all the money in the world.
      London: I can get that.
      Bailey: No, I want to stay here and be your BFF. (Bailey hugs London)
      London: Get O-F-F!

    • Bailey (in masculine voice after Zack catchers her with her hair down) Uh, I can explain.
      Zack: Please tell me the explanation is that you're a girl because I'm strangely attracted to you right now.

    • Zack: (coming out of bathroom) Hey, have you seen my soap-on-a...? (sees Bailey with her hair down) Whoa! Dude. (in sing-songy voice) You need a haircut.

    • Zack: Come on! (knocking on bathroom door) How long does it take for one guy to rinse off?
      Bailey: (in feminine voice) Well, excuse me for moisturizing.
      (in masculine voice) ...which I need to do after I shave.
      Zack: Shave what? You're like one of them hairless cats.

    • Woody: If you like that, wait 'til you hear me fart "Stairway to Heaven."
      Cody: That's like a ten minute song!
      Woody: I can only do it after the Mexican buffet... which we're having tonight.
      Cody: (weakly) Yay.

    • Zack: Ah, you are one of those neat freaks.
      Bailey: Nah, nah. I'm real easy-going. Here's the bathroom schedule.
      Zack: Umm, not so sure I can go on schedule.
      Bailey: Helps if you eat bran.

    • Zack: So, uh, what's your girl like?
      Bailey: She's very intelligent and she's got a great personality.
      Zack: Arf, arf.

    • Cody: (upon entering his cabin) Hi, I'm Co... Holy Toledo!
      Woody: Nice to meet you, Ca-holy.
      Cody: Uh, what happened in here?
      Woody: Oh, I was looking for my underwear. Oh, there it is.
      Cody: You only brought one pair?
      Woody: Plus the pair I'm wearing.

    • London: Isn't it bad enough that Daddy's making me go to this stupid sea school. Now, he's making me share a room with the maid.
      Padma: Oh, student.
      London: Student maid? I hate training a new maid!
      Padma: And I hate rooming with stuck-up snobs so I guess we're both up the Ganges without a paddle.
      London: Look, I need my own room. Ooh, idea. Why don't you drop out?
      Padma: Ooh, better idea. Why don't you drop dead?

    • London: (upon entering her cabin) Ugh, how hideous.
      Padma: Oh, you do not like the room?
      London: No, your clothes.

    • Carey: Okay, well, good-bye, Zack.
      Zack: Bye, mom.
      (Zack doesn't let go of Carey's hand.)
      Carey: Honey, you okay?
      Zack: Yeah. Sure. No problem. See ya.
      Carey: Okay
      (Zack still won't let go of Carey's hand)
      Zack: Mommy, don't go!

    • London: Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Um, is this where we get our suite assignments?
      Miss Tutweiller: Yes, but, as you can see, there's a line.
      London: As you can see, I don't care. My name is London Tipton.
      Miss Tutweiller: Oh.
      London: Let's not make a big deal about the fact that (loudly) my daddy own this boat.
      Miss Tutweiller: Deal. I will treat you the same as everyone else. (loudly, while pointing to the back) Back of the line! (politely) I mean, if that's okay with you.
      London: It isn't.
      Miss Tutweiller: And that's okay with me.

    • Cody: I can't believe I get to study oceanography on the ocean.
      Zack: I'm going to study anatomy. Starting with her.
      Carey: Ahem!
      Zack: As a study partner.

    • Cody: Did you miss us, Mr. Moseby?
      Mr. Moseby: (sarcastically) Oh, why, yes, yes. I mean, without you, the last three months on this floating paradise has been sheer torture.
      Zack: (in a sing-songy voice) Well, you're suffering's over.
      Mr. Moseby: Eh?
      Cody: We're going to be attending Seven Seas High.
      Mr. Moseby: (weakly) Eh?
      London: (shouting to Mr. Moseby) They said, "They're going to be attending Seven Seas High!" (to Zack and Cody) He's getting old.

    • London: Moseby, enough of your problems. I'm on vacation. Yay Me!
      Moseby: Well, actually, Yay You is on the ship to attend Seven Seas High School. While it may be on a cruise ship, London, this is not a vacation. Your daddy put you on this boat so that you can't jet off to Paris for lunch and miss your afternoon classes.
      London: I had afternoon classes? What's next: classes in the morning?
