    zoey and friends plan a trip to Yosemite but can't go because their chaperone, Coco, cancels at the last minute. At first they are all bummed but then they realize all the fun they can have because it is semester break and so nobody is at PCA. But the fun comes to a halt when Dean Rivers' trophy is smashed and he blames Michael and Logan. Zoey, Quinn and Lola must clear their names.

    good episode but obviously time-filler. and not great time-filler either. it was an OK episode though, good mystery, so my grade is a C+ or B-moreless
  • its semester break and the gang plans to go to yosemite but the plans fall through; michael and logan are accused of something they didnt commit

    ugh this ep was not the best..season 4 was not the best but this ep was like one of the bottom of the barrel eps..i just couldnt get into it..the only person i thought in character was coco..spoiler..the gang had the whole campus to themselves..except for a few faculty members and they only do what they normally do while there..i would go crazy..it didnt get any better when michael and logan were accused..that became a very boring investigation..and then it all turned out well when the dean and the janitor who broke his trophy made up..interesting..well not really..just not my type of epmoreless
  • This episode was kind of boring and nothing happened.

    The gang is left at PCA alone when Coco cancels their camping trip. They are all really bored. Lola paints Quinns face like a clown because she's so bored. Logan and Michael play hockey in the halls. Dean Rivers' prized golfing trophy gets vandelized and he blames Michael and Logan. They say they didn't do it, but there are a lot of suspicious things that lead him to believe it was them. Zoey has Lola and Quinn help prove that it wasn't Logan and Michael. They finally have enough information to prove that it was the janitor Seamus Finnegan. He was jealous and Seamus and the Dean started fighting.moreless
  • The gang is left at PCA after Coco, their chaperone for a camping trip, deserts them. The fun stops when the boys are blamed for destroying a golf trophy of Dean Rivers'.moreless

    This was a filler episode that was portrayed as an exciting one. Which it was not. First of all, the gang getting left at PCA has already been done, back in Season One, was there really a need to do it again? And the random plot with the janitor? Okay, how did he get hired without Dean Rivers knowing he was his ex-golfing nemesis? And wouldn't Dean Rivers have seen him around campus? Loose ends that were not tied up. Not to mention that fist fight between Dean Rivers and Seamus. I'm all for adding a little realistic violence into the show, but a fight between two men well past middle age? Not a pretty sight. Not one of Zoey 101's best episodes by far.moreless
  • It's Semester break and Coco cancels, so Zoey and her friends stay at PCA.

    I thought this episode was ok. It was not my favorite though. It's Semester break and Zoey and her friends are going camping with Coco until she cancels, and they have to stay at PCA. They decide to make the most of it. They are having fun until the boys get in trouble for smashing a trophy, now the girls have to find out who did. I thought the part with Dean River and Seamus was a little silly. In this episode Stacey was crazy to wait that long for her parents. I think this episode could of been better, but it was alright.moreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • Shaymus: (with an Irish accent) Say hello to me wee friend! (he pulls out a leaf blower and turns it on).

      This is a play off of the famous quote by Al Pacino in the movie, Scarface. The original quote is "Say hello to my little friend!" while Pacino pulls out a gun and starts shooting.
