    Chase nominates Zoey for class president and in retaliation Zoey nominates Chase. Logan takes over for Chase, making lucrative offers for the people voting so they will vote Chase. Things go too far and it threatens to ruin Zoey and Chase's friendship, forever.

    It was pretty good. The only complaint I had was that Mark bored me, but he was a very small part of the episode. So my final grade is still somewhere in the "B" Range, a pretty good episode from the second season of the show, I thought. It is not the best ever but an enjoyable 22 minutesmoreless

  • chase and zoey both inadvertedly run for class president and things get rocky when chase gets logan as him campaign manager

    i did like this ep b/c this definitely was a turning pt in the choey relationship..they never were really mad at each other..well more so zoey mad at him in this one and him feeling like an idiot so i think that strengthened their relationship in this..i like how they teased each other in the beginning but when logan got involved it was more a competition no matter how much chase didnt want it to be..and he was trying to do the right thing and not drop out but make it so zoey would win..unfortunately that didnt work out so well for him..luckily and this is a spoiler they both dropped out b/c their friendship meant more to them than a silly racemoreless
  • Zoey and Chase are running for class president.

    Chase and Zoey are running for class president. This episode proved some points. Chase really cares about Zoey and Zoey doesn't use her head when it came to Logan's ads. Chase also didn't use his head when it came to making the self destructing ad. He should have known that it wouldn't result in people not voting for him. When he forfeited from the race, he did it in a smart way that left a lot of people shocked. Logan was really smart in trying to make Chase win the election. If this had been a regular election with real politicians, his tactics would have worked fine. But he forgot that Chase isn't a politician and a really good guy.moreless
  • This is one of my favorite episodes. I like it a lot! Zoey rulez!

    I love this episode and show for that matter. It is so entertaining! Chase is the coolest of cool. They both run for class president and an interesting twist happens. Logan wants to help Chase but by planning some dirty tactics. I like it when this episode shows a lot, because everytime I see it I enjoy it! The girls are so hot too! Lola is pretty! The events ROCK OUT LOUD! It has been a LOOOONG time since I've seen this episode however. It's been at least a year. It is just brilliant! And Nickole is one beautiful girl! I love you Nickole! If you ever see my review call me at 547-0230! Of course if you're not in Ludlow Massachusetts then I'm sure you'll also have to dial 413...moreless

  • QUOTES (29)

    • Logan: (to Chase) Hey, what's up future prez? Dude, it is gonna be so cool when you win the election!
      Chase: How is that?

    • (In the press conference)
      Chase: Hi, is this thing on, am I on?.. I am? Okay... Hi my names is Chase Matthews or most of you may know me as the guy that eats out of garbage cans, shaves his legs and picks on little girls. Now I know that most of you thought my opponent Zoey Brooks made that commercial but she didn't... I did. I know that it sounds pretty stupid but I did it because I really think that Zoey is the best person for the job. Which is also why I've decided to drop out of the race for class president. Anyway, I guess that's it... Is the camera off? Yes? It's not off yet? Turn it off!... Is it off? (walks off the camera)

      Michael: Oh, yeah. The Karen Franklin incident.
      Logan: What happend with Karen Franklin?
      Michael: Her birthday was coming up, right? So I asked her what she wanted. She said nothing! So I said "uhm, nothing?" and she goes "yeah, nothing" so I said "are you sure?" and she's all "yes, I don't want anything". So, I didn't buy her a present.
      Chase: And?
      Michael: She cried for three days, then moved to Wisconsin.
      Logan: Wisconsin?
