  • His Birthday weekend!

    I cant believe that Chase ignored his important birthday for his weekend to finish his homework to get 5,000 words. I cant believe his teacher give him hard homework, was harsh! Zoey and her friends tried to get Chase got fun and enjoy weekend with no works! Zoey did tried to get his best present Chase can get it. It was weird enough that Chase and his grandma get same birthday on same day! WEIRD! It is awful enough that grandma died on her own birthday! OUCH! It is so weird double! I cant believe I saw Chase crying and got comfort from Zoey, was so sweet!moreless

    One of the best episodes of the series, and you know why? It toyed with the viewer's emotions, that's pretty strong for a show on Nickelodeon. Throughout the whole episode, you could get the feeling that Zoey 101 was building up for something big toward the end, well that's the second time you watch the episode.

    Chase & Zoey's friendship only grows stronger when they sit in the rain to the song "A Million Raindrops." It was just a great tie in, with the rain and the grandmother's favorite song. Dying on your birthday was kind of morbid, but it just made the episode all the more great. I always wondered why Lola & Quinn were so mean to Dustin. Throughout the whole series, and in this episode, he was nothing but nice to them. Yet they treated him like garbage.

    It was sad to see that Dan Schneider resorted to people being mean to each other for no reason just for comic relief. That's what annoyed me about the episode, Dustin was of course great though. Great emotional Zoey 101, definitely the best of the season.moreless
  • Present

    Chase is stressed trying to finish a paper, when he should be celebrating his birthday. Zoey searches for a present and decides to have his grandmother, whom she finds out he is close to, come visit, but she falls ill. At the end of the episode, we learn that she was more ill than lead on. She died on her birthday (As well as Chases', they shared the same birthday).

    A good episode, the subplot was stupid so I did not feel the need to mention it, but the rest was good, very interesting ending, I thought. Grade- easy A+moreless
