    Logan and Chase do not like the girls being on their roof, so they kick them out. They claim that guys can't be guys when around girls. So, Zoey and Nicole disguise Lola as a boy so they can prove to Logan and Chase that guys CAN be just guys around girls. Will their plan work?

    Good episode. The only reason my grade is not higher is because the nurse/Michael plot bored me a bit. But the rest of the episode was pretty nice, so my final grade for it is in the "C" Range. Could be higher if the sub plot did not bore memoreless
  • when the guys say the girls shouldnt be on their roof, the girls devise a plan to show that guys and girls can hang out and do the same things

    i did like this ep b/c its just like another girl power ep of any show and i always feel so empowered after girls prove that they can hang out with guys no matter what the situation..girls are just as good as guys and guys just need to accept it..i always hate it when the guys think theyre better than girls like logan and chase in some regards but the girls plan was so brilliant..spoiler..lola did some really good acting that was very phenomenon..i loved it and it just goes to show you girls can do anything guys can do..im so glad that truth is becoming a popular topic for a tv epmoreless
  • Dippin episode!

    "Girls Will Be Boys" was a great episode abotu Lola dressing up as a boy to fool the guys and get to stay witht hem in there dorm, but first the girls will have to get rid of Michael to make room. They attempt to do this to convince Chase and Logan that guys can be guys when girls are around. The girls decide to make Lola's guy name "Steve". Their plan works out and the guys are still just guys with girls around or well "Steve" around. But the girls plan backfires when The boys are asked to go play water basketball one Saturday morning. When the boys find out about Lola being Steve they allow the girls to hang out on their roof which was what started the whole predictament. Overall the episode was funny,but not really very serious. I like episodes that are a mix of serious and funny, which was why I didn't give this episode a perfect score. This episode goes right pu there with Trading Places, Spring Break-up, and Anger Mangement whcih are my favorite Zoey episodes. So to wrap things up I'd just liek to give Dan Shiender one tip about writing iCarly, Drake and Josh, and Zoey 101 episodes. Always remember to mix serious with funny. Those are the best type of episodes. Not the best, but still a very good episode.moreless
  • Lola turns to a guy.

    Haha that's funny, my favorite quote in the episode: Logan: Guys just can't be guys when there's girls around.

    Lola: Why not?

    Chase: Because when females hang around males, it just causes the males to behave differently. We can't help it.

    Logan: It's basic biology.

    Zoey: You got a C- in biology.

    Logan: Yeah, but who was the best-looking guy in the class? Huh? Yeah. Me.

    Chase: Um, I was in that class.

    Logan: What's your point?

    Guys Will be Guys! Anyway, Chase really stood up for himself in this episode, even though he still likes Zoey. This is my review for the Zoey 101 episode "Girls Will be Boys".moreless
  • Lola's a guy!

    The girls are hanging out on a rooftop, talking about their assignment load but not actually doing any work. However, their procrastination session is brought to a halt by Logan and Chase. Logan tells them to get off the boys' roof. They protest to Chase, but Chase agrees that the guys need their own space for "being guys". Nicole tells Logan and Chase there's nothing stopping them, but Logan claims that guys can't "be guys" (i.e. burp and do other disgusting stuff) in front of girls. The guys claim that biology causes guys to act differently around girls. The girls claim it's stupidity, not biology.

    I'm not sure if this moment was supposed to be funny but when Logan makes a comment about being the best-looking guy in Biology, Chase responds with, "Uh, I was in that class." Wishful thinking on Chase's part, because Logan is beyond doubt the best-looking guy at PCA, even though he's also the biggest jerk. The girls don't really react to Chase's quip.

    In a possible prelude to "Lola Likes Chase" (2 episodes later), Logan, Nicole, and Zoey leave to talk to the guys dorm adviser, leaving Chase with Lola. Things go smoothly, proving the girls' point, until Chase knocks Lola's boom box of the ledge of the roof.

    The guys' dorm adviser agrees with Logan and the girls are evicted from the roof. Zoey tries to retaliate by banning guys from the girls lounge, but boy-crazy Nicole rejects her motion. Zoey leaves to visit Dustin, who has chicken pox, and a crush on his nurse Shannon.

    The girls are on their own roof, and complaining about it, when Zoey has an idea. What if they can trick the guys into interacting with a girl? To pull this off, Lola is to dress up as a guy. While Nicole has doubts, Lola has faith in her acting abilities. After all, "Chase is gullible and Logan's a moron." However, the girls decide to get Micheal involved with their plan. Micheal doesn't seem to care about the roof, but jumps on the opportunity to play a trick on his roommates.

    The plan is to have Lola play Chase and Logan's temporary roommate while Micheal pretends to be sick at the infirmary. (Micheal tries backing out but is right back in when he sees a picture of Nurse Shannon.) In a wonderful montage, Lola becomes Steve. Micheal suggests a moustache (seriously, 9th graders do not have moustaches) but the annoyed girls send him off to the infirmary. However, Micheal is in for a rough time at the infirmary. Nurse Shannon only takes care of the Lower School, and Micheal's nurse isn't exactly the nicest.

    After Quinn equips Lola with spy glasses ("They won't explode, will they?") and a fake letter from Dean Rivers, Steve makes his debut at PCA. But the task proves difficult. Lola almost reveals herself before Steve even makes it to the guy's dorm. At the guy's dorm, she messes up the Chicago Cubs with the Detroit Tigers. However, Chase and Logan still don't suspect a thing. The plan is working.

    Until the next morning, that is. Steve is dragged into water basketball with the guys. Quinn comes to the rescue with her pet snake, Marvin, but just when Steve seems to have gotten out of trouble, she gets knocked into the pool amid the chaos. With the makeup washed off and the wig floating in the water, Steve becomes Lola again. The guys are clearly upset, but the girls have proved their point and are let back onto the guys' roof.

    Meanwhile, Micheal is going through all sorts of torture at the infirmary. He eventually tries to make a break for it, but is stopped by the nurse. It turns out he has caught chicken pox from Dustin. The episode ends with the whole gang on the roof procrastinating, except for Quinn who is playing with Marvin, and Micheal who is stuck in the infirmary.

    Victoria Justice did an excellent job as Steve in this episode. Lola's overcompensation for not actually being a guy was hilarious. What guy goes around saying "dude" to everyone in sight? And there was no real need to mention the "Chicago Tigers", as guys don't have to be into sports. However, weird as Steve was, Chase and Logan had no reason to suspect anything, a testament to Victoria's great skills. Christopher as Micheal also did well as a prisoner of the infirmary.moreless
