This is the first time Nicole uses the word "suckish."
At the end of this episode when the girls were having a party Zoey's bangs were in front of her head then when it was a close up on her it they were behind her ear but when it went back to normal it was in front of her face again. There was no sign of her ever moving her hair.
After Zoey was hit in the nose Nicole gave her some water from a bottle. When the timeout is over and the girls go on the court Nicole takes the bottle with her on the court and then they show the next scene and the bottle's not in her hand when she's on the court.
When Quinn quits the game and Dana joined, a little while later into the second half of the game, we see Quinn on the court even though she had quit by then and Dana is no where in sight.
At the end of the game, when Zoey had the ball, the timer said 00:02, however when Dana had the ball and was about to shoot, the clock was back at 00:03.
Tussling with the basketball is not allowed, so when Logan elbowed Zoey in the nose, he should have been put out.
When they are going to play the basketball game the coach says that this is the first annual GUYS vs. GIRLS game at PCA. But later on the scoreboard says Guys and Girls instead of home and guest. If this is the first annual GUYS vs. GIRLS game and the first year girls are allowed at PCA then why does the score board say guys and girls?
Logan: Coach, are you seriously gonna put a girl on our team?
Zoey: Hey, you catch on quick for a guy!
Zoey: (about the boys) Look, this is not about beating them. This is about proving we can anything they can do.
Nicole: Except use those urinal thingies! Which apparently, they don't sit on.
Zoey: (to Dana) I'm Zoey. This is Nicole. I'm guessing you're...cranky?
Zoey: So, what's the matter?
Nicole: That's the matter! (gestures toward the urinal) This is a girls' dorm, and that is clearly not for girls!
Zoey's Dad: (walking over) Kay...I got a map. I'm just uh...your dorm is Butler Hall...I'm just not sure where um...(notices Chase) Hello.
Zoey: Um Dad, this is Chase. Chase, this is my dad.
Chase: Nice to meet you, sir. Um, you know, I uh, I pass by Butler on the way to my dorm, and if you wanted me to uh, walk you there...
Zoey's Dad: Haha, nah, it's uh...that's...that's um...(Zoey looks at him) That'll be great. Sure. Um...I'll just take Dustin to his dorm then!
Zoey's Dad: So, first day at a new boarding school, living on your own, away from home...it's okay to be nervous.
Zoey: I'm not nervous.
Zoey's Dad: Yeah I was talking to me.
Zoey: Oh, turn, turn! (tries to turn the steering wheel)
Zoey's Dad: Zoey! Let go of the wheel. You're gonna make me have an accident!
Dustin: If you don't let me out of this car, I'm gonna have an accident!
Zoey's Dad: You can't hold it for just five more minutes?
Dustin: I've got twenty ounces of water in a ten ounce bladder. Stop the car!
Zoey: What, you're gonna go behind a tree?
Dustin: Beats my pants!
Chase: I think it's great that PCA's finally letting in girls, and uh, you probably do too, being a girl and all. No offense!
Zoey: It's okay, I'm used to it. Been a girl my whole life!
(Chase rides over on his bike)
(Chase crashes into flagpole)
Zoey: Are you okay?
Chase: Uh, yeah! I was just uh...checking the flag! ...It's a flag.
Zoey: Um, I think your arm's bleeding.
Chase: Oh! Yeah uh, sorry, that's what happens when um, when I get wounded.
Zoey: (giggles) I'm Zoey.
Chase: Chase. So uh, are you like a new student here at PCA? Okay, that was a stupid question, why else would you be here? I guess you could be like, dropping someone off, or uh...you know what, I'll bleed, you talk! What's up?
Zoey: (running into the bathroom) Hi, did you just scream?
Nicole: I don't know. Did it sound like this? (screams again)
Nicole: Yeah, that was me.
Zoey: Okay. How many of you have ever played on a basketball team?
(no one raises their hand)
Zoey: Okay. How many of you would say you're good at basketball?
Quinn: Um, I once made a basketball explode!
Dana: Now just pass me the ball whenever you can, and stay out of the way!
Nicole: Works for me!
Quinn: Can't we just quit? This is humiliating.
Nicole: Maybe we should just forfeit. Zoey?
Zoey: You guys forfeit. I'm playing.
Nicole: Uh excuse me, but have you noticed she's the only girl on our team who can play this game?
Coach: Yes, I think everyone here has noticed that.
Zoey: Well, which bed do you want?
Dana: I don't care...that one.
Nicole: But that's my stuff!
(Dana glares at her) ...That I'll be moving.
Zoey: Come on, were you this freaked out when it was Dustin's first year?
Zoey's Dad: Dustin? What do you think?
Zoey: Oh my God, I can see the ocean from here!
Chase: And even more important - your own mini-fridge!
Zoey: Wow! (looks inside it) And a sandwich from 1988.
Chase: Uh oh, get down. (throws the sandwich) That was close.
Zoey: My hero.
Chase: Well um, better get going. Oh and be careful.
Zoey: Why be careful?
Chase: Well it's the first day of school. A lot of kids like to pull pranks.
Zoey: Like hanging your bike from a tree?
Chase: Huh? (runs over to the window) Oh man! Put that down, you little freaks! I gotta go. Later!
Chase: Oh, and I forgot to say - welcome to PCA.
Zoey: Go save your bike.
Zoey: Okay, Logan, tell ya what. I'll round up my best five girls and you round up your best five guys. And we'll see who's better at basketball.
Logan: You serious?
Zoey: I'm serious.
Zoey: Why not?
Logan: You're on!
Zoey: See ya here!
Logan: Wanna make out?
Zoey: No! Eww!
Michael: (to Zoey) We also heard you got pizza.
Chase: And cake.
Zoey: Oh, so you want pizza.
Chase: And cake.
Logan: Hey girls, a little tip - try to make the ball go in the basket.
Zoey: And here's a tip for you - try to make words not come out of your mouth!
Dana: Can I play?
Zoey: Um, we kind of have a full team.
Quinn: Bye! (runs off)
Zoey: I guess you're in.
Zoey: (to Nicole) Wow, who would've thought we'd meet by a urinal?
Nicole: Face it, Zoey. You're the only girl on our team who can play this game. The rest of us are suckish.
Zoey: No you're not!
Quinn: Is suckish a word?
Logan: Well, look who lost. Hope you learned your lesson!
Coach: I sure did. How would you two girls like to join the basketball team?
Logan: What?! Coach!
Dana: I'll think about it.
Coach: Fair enough. What about you, Zoey? I think you'd make an excellent point guard!
Zoey: Sure! I'll play.
Logan: Coach! I play point guard!
Coach: Sometimes, things change.
Dustin: Psst, Zoey! Psst, Zoe!
Dustin: Hey! Good luck in the game. I hope you win, but I can't root for you.
Zoey: Why not?
Dustin: The guys said if I root for the girls, they'd shave off my eyebrows!
Zoey: Oh, don't let them scare you!
Dustin: Too late, I'm way past scared! Anyway, good luck!
Nicole: (about the urinal) Why's it in here?
Zoey: 'Cause this used to be a boys' dorm.
Nicole: Well, it creeps me out.
Zoey: You act like it's the first time you've seen one of these.
Nicole: Oh, please, I wasn't born yesterday. I know about boy stuff. So how do they sit on it?
Chase: (showing Zoey around campus) And uh, over there's the science building, where they have science classes. And uh, there's the library. I hear they got some books in there. And uh, let's see, cafeteria, auditorium, Jim.
Zoey: That's the gym?
Chase: Oh, no, that's my bud, Jim. 'Sup Jim!
Zoey: 'Sup Jim! I like Jim.
Chase: Yeah, Jim's good people.
Nicole: You're like a wizard with scissors. I'm gonna call you the scissor wizard!
Zoey: No, you're not.
Zoey: You play sports?
Nicole: Does shopping count as a sport?
Nicole: Then no.
Quinn: Well, give them some food, turn up the music, and let's get this party started y'all!
Erin Sanders first auditioned for the part as Nicole but got the part as Quinn instead.
Tagline: "Let's get this party started yo!" -Quinn
The theme song for the series is called "Follow Me" by Jamie Lynn Spears.
An explanation about the "101" in the title of the show is revealed. It is the room number of Zoey, Nicole, and Dana's door.
This pilot episode first aired on March 25, 2005 in Canada and is entitled "Welcome to PCA" instead of the United Sates title, "Zoey 101 (Pilot)."
