Episode Summary

The bad girl on campus (who has had a few clashes with the law in the past) has a crush on Dustin. Zoey finds out, and begs Chase to step in and break the couple up. While doing so, Chase finds himself right in the middle of a lover's quarrel he wanted nothing to do with in the first place, seeing as the bad girl has now fallen for him. Meanwhile, Logan and Michael have an encounter with a skunk, and, after they feel they've done everything they can to get rid of the smell, go to Quinn for help. Unfortunately, her anti-smell spray (which works), accidentally makes their clothes disappear.moreless

    Dustin develops feelings for an older girl named Trisha, who gets in trouble a lot. Zoey disapproves of this and tries to get them to break up. Chase intervenes and Trisha thinks Chase likes her. What will he do?

    Good episode. One of my favorites. The main plot was funny and so was the skunk sub plot. I really cannot think of one thing about this episode I did not like. It all rolled together perfectly, both plots were good ideas and had good execution, and funny, and made for one of my favorites of the series. This episode definitely gets an A+ as a grade from memoreless

  • Choey was really noticed in the episode.

    Wow, this was a great episode, including Trisha (the actor, and also known as Sam from iCarly). My favorite quote was:

    Trisha: So, how long have you two been going out?

    Zoey: A year.

    Chase: Six months ... (realizes his answer was different) ... a year

    Zoey: And six months.

    That was historical, Zoey says something and Chase says something else the sametime as Zoey and Zoey has to make sure it's right. Oh, this is funny. A funny and silly episode. Well that's my review for "Bad Girl" of tv series, Zoey 101 (Z101) This is T G H 3, peace out! - Buh Bye!moreless
  • Chase is getting closer to Zoey...

    Chase is really bad with words and making up conversation. We all know that, but when Dustin gets himself involved with an older girl, who better to be volunteered by Zoey to fix things? Why, good ole Chase of course! And since he is not the greatest with words, he talked himself right into going out with Trisha, but only because she put words in his mouth. Chase then enlists Zoey's help to get Trisha to back off, then gets her and Chase in deeper by revealing that Chase and herself are going out. When Chase and Zoey set out to prove they are really boyfriend/girlfriend, Trisha doesn't believe him, so she tells them two to kiss in front of her, if they really are for real. So, Zoey and Chase lean in toward eachother and just before their lips were about to touch, Dustin came in and knocked Chase to the ground leaving Chase to wonder why things such as that always happen to him. Will Chase ever get the girl, and have the kiss he's always wanted?moreless
  • A year...six months...a year and six months.

    Dustin falls for the bad girl in 6th grade, Trisha. Naturally, Zoey finds out and freaks out. Since she promised Dustin she wouldn't interfere with his life anymore, she gets Chase to do her dirty work for her. ("And my nightmare begins... now.") Chase tries, but being the lovable idiot he is, makes things worse.

    First, Chase talks to Dustin, but only makes him more eager to date Trisha. Zoey makes him try again, but after talking to Trisha, she falls for him instead and even kisses him. Dustin is furious. ("I was just threatened by a topless boy.") Chase finally persuades Zoey to step in.

    Zoey doesn't do much better, and as a final desperate attempt, tells Trisha that Chase and her are a couple. (Well, they are, they just don't acknowledge it.) Trisha doesn't believe her. While Zoey thinks she failed, Chase has an idea: they pretend to date so that Trisha will leave Chase alone. Zoey agrees to the plan, and Chase is so happy about it (for obvious reasons) he has to douse himself with water.

    Trisha still doesn't believe them, so she makes them kiss. Zoey asks if it is really necessary. (Chase: "Please say yes, please say yes, please say yes... (aloud) she said yes.") Eventually they agree to kiss, but just before they do, Dustin runs into the scene and tackles Chase to the ground. Trisha, impressed, dumps Chase and goes after Dustin again, but Dustin knows better now, and Trisha is left without a boyfriend, and Chase is left without a kiss.

    Meanwhile, Quinn invents a spray to rid Micheal and Logan of their skunk stench, but it also disintegrates their clothing, forcing them to run around campus wearing nothing but garbage bags. Wow, Nick.

    I'm surprised at how eager Zoey was to go along with Chase's plan. Maybe this is a hint that Zoey does like Chase as more than a friend. I'm bummed that Dustin had to ruin the kiss, but with it, the show would have been over long ago. I'm patient, so I can take all these delays. I'm just happy the prospect of them getting together is even shown.

    Side notes: Popular Science's guide to removing skunk smell:

    1 quart 3% H2O2, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 tsp liquid soap. Secondly, race car drivers should know their physics and chemistry if they want to understand their car.moreless
