  • The Wizards with Suite Life

    I've always been a massive fan of the Suite Life, in particular the original series which in my opinion is FAR, FAR, FAR better than its spin off series. One of my favorite characters has always been Zack. I mean, Max has always been a cardboard cut-out of a better character. At the same time, I've always detested Bailey Pickett to the point I sometimes refuse to watch any episode that has her.

    I loved Justin in this episode where he actually tries to go out with London and succeeds by fooling her, whereas Alex befriends Bailey and uses Harper to get her to class whilst Zack and Max just goof around.

    I loved each part of this episode and just found it memorable. Hey, I even enjoyed Bailey in this episode strangely. This episode is one of the best of the show and my third favorite Season 2 episode

  • The Wizards set sail!

    In this episode, Justin wins a trip on the S.S. Tipton for an essay he wrote. Everyone is excited, but only kids under adult age can go...and Alex can't go because of her several missed assignments. Though, that's never stopped Alex before, when she convinces Jerry and Theresa to let her attend the school on the boat. Meanwhile, Justin is looking forward to meeting London Tipton. We he meets her, Justin pretends to be a doctor and London falls for it (big surprize). Now, you would think that Alex is actually excited to go to school on the ship, but we should all know Alex by now. She transports Harper from her suitcase and has her pose as "Alex Russo" while Alex has all the fun she can have on the boat before she gets caught. Alex bonds with Bailey and Cody and Harper share academic success. It was so funny how Alex kept forgeting her cover name (Ashley Olsen... yep, very easy to remember). Also when Justin discovered London's intellegence and Max said "That girl is really dumb, and that's coming from me!". I thought that was good example of how the characters from WOWP are so much more complex and funny than in TSLOD, because no characters are generally mean, stupid, or goofy in a desperate attempt to be funny. Max and Zack compete to see who is the wackiest troublemaker, but we will never know who won. In the end, Alex saves Bailey from choking, blows her cover (I'm Ashley.... Simpson?), London breaks up with Justin, and Alex sends Harper home (or... Rome). Really good episode - "A"moreless

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Alex: Did you know, there's a 24 hour pizza bar?
      (Waves a plate with pizza on it, under her dad's nose.)
      Jerry: (sniffs it) There's a pizza bar?
      Theresa: Don't fall for the pizza! That's how she distracts you!!
      Jerry: But pizza is the second most distracting food, right next to ice cream. (looks at Alex) Is there Ice cream?

    • Theresa: (to Moesby) You know, the ship's name is "Tipton" which has the word "tip" in it! Which makes me very nervous!!
      Moesby: It also has the word "Ton" in it. As in the Ship weighs 87000 tons.
      (Theresa looks more worried, then comforted)
      Theresa: (panicked) Oh, my Gosh, how does this thing float!!?

    • (Harper is in marine biology class pretending to be Alex)
      Harper: How long does it take to get from the Atlantic Ocean to the middle of the Pacific Ocean?
      Moseby: That is an excellent question, Alex Russo.
      Harper: Well, that's me.
      Cody: It takes about a month of constant sailing at top speed if you go through the Panama Canal, or you can take the path Magellan did in 1522 and go around Cape Horn, but...
      Harper: But he died before he got all the way home.
      Cody: Knowledge is cool.
      Harper: So are dead explorers.
      Cody: You're an amazing student, Alex Russo.
      Harper: Well, that's Alex Russo for you.

    • Alex: You see how much fun this cruise is? And speaking of fun, I signed you up for a really cool marine biology course.
      Harper: Marine biology? That doesn't sound like fun.
      Alex: What? You love marine biology. Remember that whale-watching trip?
      Harper: The one when I got seasick?
      Alex: That wasn't seasick, that was excited-sick.
      Harper: I do throw up when I get excited.
      Alex: Well, get ready to vomit, because you're going to marine biology class.
      Harper: Thanks, Alex.
      Alex: Oh, and one more thing, though. You're going to be Alex Russo when you go.
      Harper: Well, who are you gonna be?
      Alex: I'm gonna be the girl on the ship having as much fun as she can as fast as she can until she gets caught.

    • Max: (referring to London) That girl is really dumb! And that's coming from me!

    • Justin: Max, I'm in big trouble, London Tipton thinks that I'm the rich Doctor Fossil and she's on her way down to take a picture with the poor Russos.
      Max: Oh no, we're poor, well I guess I can't afford these. (takes off slippers and throws them off the boat)

    • Moseby: Looks like I need one more for the tug of war. Anyone? Anyone?
      Alex: A chance to humiliate some boys? Sure, why not?

    • Max: Someone get this thing off me, it keeps getting tighter! (still squeezing the thing)
      (Zack grabs a pen from a person and pops it)
      Max: Ooooh... thanks.
      Zack: So, I hear you're randomly taking people's blood pressure. I'm Zack, I'm kinda the one on the ship who does weird and hilarious stuff.
      Max: Well... good for you, cause I'm the one who does incredibly cool and serious stuff that people laugh at for no reason.

    • Max: Justin, look! Check it out. It's one of those arm clocks. I'm gonna go put it on people and tell them what time it is inside their bodies.

    • (Alex is sending Harper home)
      Alex: From east to west this spell's no jest wherever we roam send Harper back home.
      (Harper disappears)
      Alex: Oh, wait! Did I say Rome or home first? (Pauses to think about it) Eh, she'll like Rome.

    • Alex: (About London Tipton) And famous for doing absolutely nothing.
      Justin: Aren't you kind of known for doing nothing?
      Alex: You think I'm doing nothing but really, I'm planning something against you. (takes Justin's popcorn)
