  • Wait for it, wait for it, it's gonna happen... nope, keep waiting.

    We find out that Logan's dad invited the gang to spend Spring break at his mansion. We cut to Chase and Micheal packing. Chase tries to sneak some cologne into his suitcase, but Micheal catches him. Micheal urges Chase to tell Zoey he loves her ("The people on Neptune know it!"), but Chase refuses. He says he's afraid that if Zoey doesn't feel the same way, things could get awkward between them and they could lose their friendship.

    The gang all love the Reese residence, but there's a surprise for them. They are to compete in Malcolm Reese's (shoutout to Malcolm in the Middle) new reality show, Gender Defenders. Chase and Zoey are chosen as team captains. They are to meet in the courtyard later that evening to go over the rules. After the rest of the gang leaves, Micheal urges Chase again to tell Zoey he loves her. Chase tickles him.

    We next see Chase waiting for Zoey in the courtyard. Micheal again urges -- well you get the idea, but this time on their new TekMates. Chase responds with "For the billionth time, no. If I tell Zoey I love her, it could wreck our friendship." He has just enough time to send it before Zoey arrives, leading to a romantic scene where Chase is obviously more interested in Zoey than in the rulebook he should be reading.

    By the way, if you're thinking "Election" also from Season 2, it gets a lot worse than that.

    When Micheal asks Chase whether he finally told Zoey he loves her, Chase asks him why he didn't read his message. It turns out that Chase sent the message to (no points for guessing correctly) Zoey by mistake. After a hilarious "Oh my God!" sequence, Chase and Micheal come up with a plan. They will swipe Zoey's Tekmate from her and delete the message before she reads it.

    After an initial failed attempt, Chase finally gets a hold of Zoey's TekMate and deletes the message, but fails to put it back. His theft is discovered, and he is accused of cheating in the contest. Zoey doesn't accuse him downright, but is extremely upset that he won't tell her the truth. When Chase asks, "does this mean we're not friends anymore?" Zoey just walks away, leaving behind a very hurt Chase.

    The second competition is completed without incident. The contest is tied, so the teams enter the final round. Chase and Zoey are to slug it out in the pool. After each knocking the other into the pool once, Chase throws the match, and the girls win. Of course, Zoey is still upset at Chase.

    It is not until the gang is back at PCA that the conflict is finally resolved. Chase is sitting at a fountain when Zoey walks up to him. Chase explains that he was trying to delete a message he intend to send Micheal, but doesn't say what the message was about. When Zoey presses him on it, he finally relents, but the rest of the gang drag them to the lounge to watch the show before Chase can say anything.

    After another burst of courage, Chase send the following message to Zoey's TekMate: "The message was... I LOVE YOU." However, Zoey left her TekMate at the fountain and the vibrating alert causes it to fall in, and the message is lost forever.

    Such a sad episode needs good comic relief, and Paul was excellent as the Frazzed, hyperactive Dustin. The games were quite entertaining too. Still, this episode is about character development, as we learn the reason why Chase won't tell his secret. Jamie and Sean pull off the hurt expression perfectly, and their awkwardness at the closing party was perfect too. Sad ending, but great episode.moreless
  • End is Sad

    The gang go to Logan's house for spring break, where they learn they are going to be filming for a new reality show called Gender Defenders, where the boys try to beat the girls, and vice-versa. Michael tries to convince Chase to tell Zoey how he really feels, but Chase doesn't think he should, thinking what would it be like if Zoey doesn't feel the same way? So, one night when Michael and Chase are texting each other using their new "Tekmate" phones Logan's Father got everyone. But Chase accidentally sends a message to Zoey. The next day, during the first event, Chase takes Zoey's tekmate and deletes the message, but fails to get it back to her in time. The girls were going to text Zoey the answers for the trivial thing, but since Chase had her tekmate they couldn't, and the boys win. So now Chase and Zoey are fighting.

    In the end, the girls win the ultimate fight, but Logan's Father reveals both teams will be on the pilot episode.

    Back at PCA, when many students gather to watch the pilot of their friends, the gang, Chase decides to finally tell Zoey he loves her. He texts her the message, but her tekmate is at a fountain. Upon getting the message, the takmate vibrates into the water and breaks.

    The overall tone of this episode is much sadder and more dramatic then what we are all typically used to, but it worked wonders.moreless
  • the gang spends their spring break at logan's father's house and they get to be on a game show too; chase and zoey encounter some problems in their relationship

  • Greatest TV movie ever! Zoey and Chase are the coolest! This has been a wonderful movie! A lot of good events!

    Chase has to try to protect his secret from Zoey! He is almost successful but is figured out and is accused of cheating. But he didn't! Logan also has the coolest mansion! that was hilarious when Chase imitated that butler whose name was Chauncey. In the end Chase sent that text message to Zoey saying that he was in love with her but Zoey's pager fell in the fountain on the outskirts of PCA. It still had a happy ending though, and was so exciting! Games were held at Logan's mansion and they ll looked so fun! Again, love Nickole! She's the best and it's a real shame she wasn't in season 3 or 4, Whichever it was and I miss her really badly.moreless
  • One of the best 1-hour tv movies.

    It's one of the first and best 1-hour tv movie. All Chase wanted to do was get Zoey's Tek-Mate. Man, when Chase wrote that text message at the end, I almost burst out. Zoey you need to check where your Tek-Mate is. It's sad she left it at the fountain, but weird. Why would she leave it there. Michael started teasing Chase in the episode, and I think Logan did too. But it was a pretty good tv-movie. Id cant wait for more of Zoey 101. Id give it a 10.0/10.1 :P. No I'm kiding. 10/10 it is! Thanks guys. Peace out!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (12)

    • While the girls and boys are partying after the girls' win, the song "Mandy" is being played by the DJ. It is by the Jonas Brothers off their CD "It's About Time."

    • The "Tek Mate" is an exact replica of the T-Mobile Sidekick II.

    • The numbers in each of the two combinations are related to the other numbers within that combination. The boys' combination, 27-12-36, are all multiples of three. The girls' combination, 14-7-21, are multiples of seven.

    • When Quinn calls Zoey's Tekmate, it rings, yet when the girls text message the combination to Zoey, it does nothing. Chase clearly didn't touch it between those two events, so it couldn't have been off during the text message.

    • Zoey still has her Tek Mate on when she is being pulled off the fountain to run back inside to watch "Gender Defenders." So it is impossible for her to have left it at the fountain.

    • When Chase and Michael are talking after Chase realizes he sent the wrong message, if you look closely, Chase's Tek Mate is shown open and closed in between shots.

    • Mistake: When Chase is typing the message he accidentally sends to Zoey, it says to "PCA Michael" so it couldn't have been sent to Zoey.

    • Everyone's last names are learned:
      Chase Matthews
      Logan Reese
      Zoey Brooks
      Dustin Brooks
      Quinn Pensky
      Lola Martinez
      Michael Barret
      Nicole Bristow

    • When "Gender Defenders" is being played back at PCA, it is done exactly the way it was aired earlier in the episode.

    • After the second challenge, Dustin starts running in circles and laughs madly but when he runs into the shot, we see he's not laughing or even smiling.

    • In the opening credits for "Gender Defenders," Nicole is not mentioned.

    • Not that everyone would be as rich as Logan, but PCA is a nice boarding school. The kids would proabably be wealthy, and every kid at the school was shocked at the limo. Some, if not all, of these kids would also be rich.
