    The ship docks in Rome. Cody and Zack want to eat at a popular restaurant, but because they do not have reservations, they cannot eat there. But, the owner had to fire someone, and she ends up hiring Zack and Cody.

    London falls for a guy, who tricks her into giving him 20,000 dollars. Turns out the man and his uncle are con artists. But now the man feels bad, and him and Bailey come up with a plot to trick the uncle and get the money back.

    Good episode. I was more interested in the con artist plot, but the plot with Zack and Cody working had some good parts too.

    Grade- Amoreless
  • Proof that you can make fun of the bigger things... that you manufuctured

    This episode was a must for me, and it really essence most things people wanted to watch out of it; parodying the Hannah, a scheme connection, food, Italy, it's a cool thing.

    So, the gang finally arrives to Italy, and Mr Mosbey wants the day off. Well, that runs out of promisis. He gets kicked out because of the twins. Cody, because he wants to meet the famous Gigi, and Zack was just in for food. So, both get hired for the job, but, in the end, Zack got the dinner with Gigi, while Cody mourns in swallow.

    Meanwhile - and this is my favorite part - London meets an italian gutarist who's father scemes money from her. I really had some good nods about the Hannah Montana and As the Bell Rings nods, but the ending wasn't clear.

    Bottom line, watch this episode. Plain and simple.moreless
  • the best episode of this season.

    this show really outdone themselves with this episode.the ship stops at rome so that the passengers can know about the country.zack and cody wanted to eat at a popular restaurant but was unable to do so unless they work for the restaurant. In the end ,zack is the one who remain unfired and is able to eat with the chef.the baily/london subplots are even funnier than zack and cody's part. a guy cheats on london's money for his uncle.baily soon realise it and tells london but london do not belive her. then she disguise as "naomi nyoming" - which made me laugh and moseby as lil mose .the part when the uncle ask luca to run this way and lil mose raps was the best part os the episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The moral of the episode is: Beware where you go on holidays or travels, as there always is a con artist or scammer around.

    • London's zodiac sign is Libra.

    • Zack says to Gigi: "table for dos" - in a world-class Italian restaurant. "Dos" means "two" in Spanish.

    • As Bailey says, "We just scammed the scammer", the money switches from her right hand to her left hand, then back to her right hand when Uncle Marcos grabs it. Notice that the money is in the gloved left hand in the close-up, and in the gloveless right hand in the mid-shots.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Bailey: We're gonna be in Rome, and the last thing Pa told me before I left the farm is to watch out for pickpockets in the big city.
      London: And by "big city" you mean...
      Bailey: Any place where the mayor is not a goose.

    • Bailey: London, we need to talk. It's not easy for me say, and it won't be easy for you to hear.
      London: It's about my eye and makeup, isn't it? I'm about to change it.
      Bailey: No. It's about Luca. He doesn't really like you; he just likes your money.
      London: Oh Bailey, poor, jealous, badly dressed Bailey!
      Bailey: I'm not jealous! It's true. I overheard Luca talking with his uncle. They're conmen and you're the mark.
      London: No, Bailey. I'm the London.

    • Cody: I wanna eat here more than anything in the world.
      Mr. Moseby: Well then, you should've made reservations fifteen years ago.
      Zack: We couldn't even talk fifteen years ago.
      Mr. Moseby: What a wonderful time that must be!

    • London: I am not a tourista; I'm a Libra!

    • Cody: Uh, Mr. Moseby...
      Mr. Moseby: No!
      Cody: I didn't even say anything.
      Mr. Moseby: I don't care! I'm on vacation.
      Zack: Uh, but, Mr. Moseby...
      Mr. Moseby: Zip, zip, zip!
      Cody: "Zip, zip, zip" is what I was trying to tell him; his fly is open.

    • Cody: What are you doing?
      Bailey: Unwrapping. I have to go tinkle!

    • Zack: (to Cody) Just take a ravioli. It's not like she has eyes in the back of her head. (knife flies and pierces the ravioli, pinning it to the wall)

    • Cody: I have tomato in places tomato should never be!

    • Zack: Hey look, it's Frosty the Doughman.
      Cody: (hits doughman with a rolling pin) Now he's dead as a dough nail.
      Zack: He was so young!

    • Luca: I have terrible news.
      London: You don't like my new eye makeup?
      Luca: My uncle is very angry.
      London: With my new eye makeup?

    • London: Hey, I have the same sunglasses!
      Bailey: These are your sunglasses. (takes off her red wig and sunglasses) It's me, Bailey.

    • Bailey: (referring to London's shopping bags) London, these are getting really heavy.
      London: So, take them back to the ship.
      Bailey: I am not your servant!
      London: Here's 50 bucks.
      Bailey: Let me get that for you, ma'am!
      (London puts handle of small shopping bag into Bailey's mouth)
      Bailey: Taxi! (walks offscreen)

    • Bailey: I'm not jealous. It's true. I overheard Luca talking with his uncle. They're conmen and you're the mark.
      London: No, Bailey, I'm the London.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The German episode title is "Verliebt in Rom", meaning "Love In Rome".

    • When Luca is singing and London falls for him, the song that he was singing was "Could You Be The One?" by Tony Oller from As The Bell Rings. This song is featured in the episode "Ballad from Lexi".


    • Meet the Parents
      When Gigi tells Zack and Cody "I am watching you", she points to her eyes and then points to Zack and Cody in the same manner as Robert DeNiro's character did to Ben Stiller's character in the movie, Meet the Parents. The same gesture was also used in the sequel, Meet the Fockers, where Jack (Robert DeNiro) is teaching Little Jack sign language.

    • Hannah Montana
      Naomi Wyoming (Bailey) was an obvious parody of Hannah Montana and Little Moes (Mr. Moseby) seems a lot like Oliver.
