Hotel Hangout is the first episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
We are introduced to 12-year-old identical twins Zack and Cody whose mom is the new headline singer at the very fancy Tipton Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. They live in a suite on the 23rd floor of the hotel. As the 'new guys' they have trouble making friends at their new school, with only two outcasts being friendly; Tapeworm, a tall boy who is a math genius, and Max, a girl who dresses like a boy but who can dance fantastically. When other students learn that they live at the Tipton they all want to hang out with the twins. Soon dozens of students start showing up and the hotel is overrun by preteens. The boys come to realize that all of the kids like them only because of the benefits of the hotel, and recognize Tapeworm and Max as their only true friends.
Maddie, the beautiful teenage candy counter girl at the hotel, reluctantly agrees to tutor London, the daughter of the owner of the hotel chain, in math in return for advice on how to ask out boys. Maddie goes out with Lance the hotel lifeguard and discovers that, although he is cute, he is also pretty dim and is obsessed with talking about water. On the end London gets a C+ in math, her dad buys her a big screen tv, and Maddie uses Londons advice and dumps lance. They were both happy!

"The Fairest of Them All" "Hotel Inspector"

Maddie Checks In is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
Two guys come to the Tipton, and London wants to go to the Usher concert with them, however Moseby won't let her go because he receives a fax from her father saying that she can't go on dates alone, without another girl. So she asks Maddie to come with her. When Maddie introduces herself to Jason, she thinks he is another rich snob, but he says something about recycling and they hit it off. London asks Maddie if she will go to the concert, just so London can go, and Jason and Maddie start to like each other.
The next day, Jason thinks Maddie is rich, and she starts to lead him on, saying she has a suite. She thinks Jason is leaving, but he ends up staying another night and offers to take Maddie to dinner. That night, Zack and Cody help her, by getting her an imperial suite and a dress (Which was supposed to be delivered to London), however a celebrity wrestler is staying in Maddie's "suite". When London finds out her dress is missing, Zack & Cody lie to her that Maddie's changing in a closet. So when London looks in, they push her in and quickly lock the door! Maddie, Jason, and his parents go to dinner right in the Hotel where Carey is singing. While they are out, Zack and Cody make sure the Amputater leaves, by wreaking the room and putting it back together when Maddie comes back.
When everyone comes back from dinner, London appears with a bucket stuck to her foot (It was there when she was pushed in & trapped) and orders Maddie to get out of her dress! Jason asks Maddie what is going on and she has to tell him the truth : The dress she's wearing isn't hers. She's not rich. She works at the Tipton as a Candy Counter Girl. Didn't know what she was thinking of lying in the first place and that she's really sorry-leaving Jason confused and Maddie running off in tears.
Carey follows Maddie into the elevator and talks to Maddie, who is feeling lousy and that Jason will hate her. Carey consoles her and tells her that she shouldn't sell herself short. After some help from Carey, Maddie stops crying.
The next day, Carey then takes the boys' television away as punishment for injuring a professional wrestler, damaging hotel property, locking London in a closet, and almost ruining her singing performance!
Meanwhile, Jason goes to the candy counter and sees the real Maddie, working. Jason tells her that he's not like most rich guys and Maddie apologizes. Then they both kiss good-bye (It's Jason's last day there), while the twins are seeing them doing it again and Zack is annoyed by it.

"Maddie Checks In" "Grounded on the 23rd Floor"

The Hotel Inspector is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
Mr. Moseby hears that a hotel inspector is on the way to the Tipton. Afraid the mischievous twins Zack and Cody will get him fired, he invites them to that night's Red Sox game. But Zack sneaks his pet rats, Bonnie and Clyde, to the game. Mr. Moseby meets the Tipton hotel inspector, Ilsa (played by Caroline Rhea) - notable for her very large mole - shortly before the twins return. Bonnie and Clyde sneak out of Zack's pocket and causes panic in front of the Ilsa, the inspector. Appalled, Ilsa sends Moseby packing and takes over the hotel. While under Ilsa's strict control, Zack and Cody realize how much Moseby meant to them. Zack heads up to Moseby's apartment to apologize and invite him back, but Moseby refuses to go. Meanwhile, London is working on a birthday poker party for her dog, Ivana. Maddie the candy clerk is inevitably drafted to wear a dog/clown costume. When Bonnie and Clyde return to their suite, Zack and Cody say they were lucky that they found the rats before the party, which would have been a disaster that could get a manager fired. Noting that, Zack and Cody realize what they must do to get Moseby back.
So, Cody invites the Cat Lovers Society for a free week at the Tipton, allowing them to bring as many cats as they want, while Zack hacks into the Tipton computer system and reassigns everyone to a new room so that their card keys don't work on their usual rooms. The next day, Ilsa is overwhelmed with complaints. Zack also did something to the computer so that every time you push a button it comes up with a picture of a dancing koala. Meanwhile, Zack phones Mr. Moseby and complains that the hotel is going crazy. When Moseby assures Zack that Ilsa can handle it, he overhears cries for help from Esteban, Muriel and Cody. These problems were all false, but Moseby knew the Tipton needed him immediately. Next, Zack releases Bonnie and Clyde, who run through the lobby to lure the Cat Lovers' cats into giving chase. The rats relay themselves into Cody's carrier. The cats disappear behind a corner, only to come running back into the lobby followed by the dogs from the party. The Tipton review board comes in to see all the commotion in the lobby. Not long later, Mr. Moseby arrives and restores order. Impressed with his work, the review board gives Moseby his job back. Ilsa leaves the hotel without a job. Zack and Cody had engineered the chaos, nearly destroying the hotel in the process, just to get Moseby back, and he only has one thing to say to them: "Thank you."

Trivia
Ilsa (played by Caroline Rhea) makes a cameo appearance in the episode, "Cookin' With Romeo and Juliet".
1st appearance of Ilsa
1st appearance of Muriel
3rd appearance of Esteban
When Mr. Moseby says to the twins that the health inspector is coming, he hints that they might go to New York. They then ask for Yankees' tickets, even though they hate the Yankees.
The first part of Ilsa's last name is the original family name of Adolf Hitler's father.
When Moseby says the kids are going to New York, they could have asked for Mets tickets.

Allusions
Zack's pet rats are named after Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the most infamous outlaw couple in American history. And they are the cousins of Stitch in "Lilo and Stitch: The Series".
Ilsa's outburst at the end "I'll get you next time, Mr. Moseby. And your little dog, too!" was an allusion to the famous line The Wizard of Oz. She later uses a similar line in "Bowling."
When Maddie says "London, we have a problem" she is alluding to the Tom Hanks, line in Apollo 13.

Trivia
Even though London is obviously tone deaf, in real life Brenda (London) is an excellent singer as she sang with the Disney Channel Circle of Stars. The song they sung as "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes." Along with stars from "That's So Raven" and "Phil of the Future" Dylan, Cole, and Ashley also participated.
Even though they are not actually playing their instruments in this episode, the Sprouse twins did write the song and record it in the studio.

"Band in Boston" "To Catch a Thief"

Cody Goes to Camp is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
Cody goes to math camp with his friend Tapeworm and meets a new friend, Warren. Zack is excited to be free from his brother, but soon finds out he's alone and doesn't have anybody to play with. London get her learner's permit starts her driving lessons with Mr. Moseby, but things don't go that well when she crashes into the Tipton because Mr. Moseby was tensing her up. Zack gets worried because Cody doesn't return his calls, and convinces London into driving him to the camp to visit. London and Zack run away with Muriel as driver's aid and Maddie -- having kidnapped her after she threatens to tell -- and after being stopped twice by the police, they arrived at the camp where Zack finally admits he missed Cody.

Trivia
The song played when Cody and Tapeworm get to Camp Knock-A-Number is also in Playhouse Disney's PB&J Otter episode, Babble Berry Picking.
5th appearance of Esteban
4th appearance of Muriel
3rd appearance of Tapeworm
1st appearance of Warren
London's crashing through the wall of the ballroom is similar in plotline to the episodes of Family Matters, Silver Spoons, and Full House where Eddie, Rick, and Stephanie respectively also have the same accident. The same thing also happened in an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, where Frank and Marie had the same accidents.
The highway patrolman was on point when he mentioned that driving too slow is can also be dangerous (as going too fast). Most highways in every part of the world have a minimum speed limit as well as maximum and London could have just as easily been written up for going too slow.

Goofs
When London is driving the car to go to Cody's math camp, they establish that the car is going 20 mph, after that a police officer pulls the car over, so Muriel tells everyone to act natural. Maddie then asks how she can act natural in a car going 10 mph. (It could be that Maddie would be trying to show everyone the car is going very slow, or that it's impossible to act natural in a car going slower than people on bicycles. Of course, Maddie being in the car against her will may also have something to do with her semantics.)
London says that she is going to the DMV to get her Learner's Permit. In Massachusetts, what other states refer to as the "DMV" (Department of Motor Vehicles), is called the "RMV" (Registry of Motor Vehicles) or simply "The Registry". (Though it could be a reference to London's stupidity).
Error in Geography: The highway patrolman who stops them twice is wearing a California Highway Patrol uniform -- including the sunburst badge but minus the badges on his collar. Massachusetts State Police highway patrolmen would be wearing dark blue instead of khaki with upside-down triangular-shaped badges.
When London is adjusting the rear mirror she only rubs it and the mirror dosen't move.
In the postcard Cody sends , he says he has made lots of new friends but there is only one person that we see he has met in camp.


To Catch a Thief

Zack and Cody try to disprove the myth that Esteban is a thief and Maddie dogsits Ivana, which helps Zack and Cody find the real Jewel thief.

"Cody Goes to Camp" "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Hotel"

"To Catch a Thief" is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
Zack and Cody find out there is a jewel thief at the Tipton. However, when Mr. Moseby declares a meeting about the jewel thief, he says they are not allowed to go in. They sneak in anyways, by using the food cart, when the two men in charge of the cart are eating the foods and are distracted. They go inside, and cause Esteban to look suspicious, because he is talking to the fruit on the food cart while it is really Zack and Cody who he is talking to. After everyone leaves, they see that the woman whose jewels are being stolen suspects Esteban, because he was the last one in their suite before the jewels were stolen. Zack and Cody decide to find the real jewel thief, because they didnt want Esteban to get fired, and because they know that Esteban wouldnt do it, but no one would believe them. They overhear a suspicious conversation, and they think they found the jewel thief. However, after Esteban jumps on the man at a bar mitzvah, they find out he is not the crook. They later find out the jewel thieves are in fact the two food cart men. They hatch a plan. However, Muriel gets caught in the net they put up. In the end, Ivana pulls the string and Muriel falls on the thieves. Zack and Cody find out that the person who gets the money is in fact London Tipton, since Ivana is her dog. Maddie, who was taking care of Ivana, since London had gone away and couldn't take the dog, complains that things aren't fair. However, in the end, she helps Ivana and London overcome their 'problems', since Ivana wouldn't talk to London on the phone. Maddie then says "That'll be ten-thousand dollars."

Trivia
Esteban's full name is revealed in the episode: Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez, occasionally it is mentioned in the series.
Esteban's father's full name is revealed also: Diego Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez. And his mother name: Gladis.
6th appearance of Esteban
5th appearance of Muriel
2nd appearance of Mr. Mambossa
When Carey scolds the twins she makes a reference to Aesop's Fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Zack however doesn't get the point. He probably was nodding off when the tale was first told to him in kindergarten.

"To Catch a Thief" "Poor Little Rich Girl"

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Hotel is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
After accidentally destroying a painting, Zack & Cody discover an old newspaper article describing a treasure left in the hotel by mobster Alphonse "Hot Peppers" DeLeo in 1938. Soon, the twins, Maddie, Muriel, Esteban, London, and Arwin are all turning the hotel upside down to find it. After Arwin's latest invention - a super strength glue - explodes a hotel wall once Moseby and Carey arrive, money and gold bars are found - but they turn out to belong to the United Bank of Boston next door to the hotel. The hidden treasure turned out to be "Hot Peppers" girlfriend - Muriel.

Trivia
This is Dylan Sprouse and Ashley Tisdale's favorite episode.
Each of the younger characters reveal their dream of what they would do with the money:
Zack would marry Maddie and live in a private suite with a huge gameroom. (Maddie would be Maddie Martin or Maddie Fitzpatrick-Martin.)
Cody would win the Nobel Prize in each academic area as well as baking and work with Dr. Inga.
Maddie would be become President of the United States and help protect the environment while having good-looking secret service agents.
Esteban would become the owner and manager of Hotel "Esteban", make London work as a bellhop, and make every certain time of the day "salsa time" where everybody in the hotel dances the salsa.
London is already rich, so she wouldn't change a thing.
Muriel has been "working", more likely just sitting around, at the hotel since at least 1938. If she was 18 when she began working, she'd be 85 years old now. Of course the minimum age for full-time work was 14 back then.
In the flashback, each character is portrayed by another character in the Suite Life of Zack & Cody:
Muriel - Maddie Fitzpatrick
Hot Peppers - Esteban Julio .blah blah blah (not writing it all!)
Hot Pepper's bodyguards - Zack Martin and Cody Martin
Flossy - Carey Martin
Detective - Mr. Moseby
London's Great Grandmother - London Tipton

The episode title is occasionally printed wrong, adding or subtracting the word "Mad".
During Esteban's dream, Kim Rhodes who plays Carey has a bandage on her left ankle.
London's great-grandmother speaks with a Southern accent even though she's a Bostonian.

References
The episode title and the frantic search for treasure are based on the 1963 movie It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
In Zack's fantasy, he tells his "wife" Maddie, "Baby, you're the greatest" -- a reference to The Honeymooners in which Ralph would tell Alice those exact same words after making up from a fight.
In Muriel's flashback, Detective Moseby was mimicking James Cagney.
When Zack tells his brother, "So I'm in love. Sue me" it was a reference to "Guys and Dolls". One of the main characters, Nathan Detroit, tries to explain to his fianc that he loves her by singing 'sue me, sue me, what can you do me, I love you!..."

Goofs
When Esteban imagines himself as manager, the logo on the front desk is an E. But on London's bellhop uniform, there still is a T.
Cody calculates the garbage room to be at the center of the hotel, but Arwin blows through the wall of that room to a federal bank next door, although the garbage room could stretch from the center to one side.
Seeing as though Muriel would be between 81 and 85 now, in "Free Tippy" Mr. Tipton has a strict retirement policy when they turn 65. However this was Season 1 of the show. Free Tippy occurred in Season 2 when Muriel was no longer seen on the show.

"It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Hotel" "Cookin' With Romeo and Juliet"

Poor Little Rich Girl is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
London discovers her father has gone broke when he accidentally over-invested in a diamond mine that turned out to be diamond-less. With nowhere else for her to go, Maddie reluctantly lets London move into her family's apartment (which is next to Fenway Park). Maddie helps London begin to learn "regular people" skills including finding a job. She suggests that London babysits for Zack and Cody. While sitting, she nearly burns down the suite while trying to make grilled cheese (She didn't use bread or take the plastic of the slices of cheese). During her "poor" life, London discovers things she had never experienced when she was rich, such as peanut butter, sleepovers, making a bed herself, and especially the value of family and a good friend. But soon, her father strikes oil in his diamond-less diamond mine, and are rich again. London still recognizes that Maddie was the only friend who didn't abandon her when she didn't have money and they confirm that they are friends.
Meanwhile, the twins find a videotape in which their mother temporarily mixes them up when they were babies. Cody thinks he might be Zack, and Zack thinks he might be Cody. While they challenge Carey, they also start acting like each other. Carey eventually resolves the matter by having their birth certificates sent to the hotel from the hospital and identifying them by their footprints. Zack and Cody have been living under their correct names all their life and they return to normal.

Trivia
8th appearance of Esteban
7th appearance of Muriel
1st appearance of Kurt (Voice)
This episode contains some mild Adult Humor: When Maddie tells London they're going to "Strip and Make the Bed," London misunderstands and begins unbuttoning her blouse, but is stopped by Maddie who explains that they were going to Strip the blankets from the bed, not their clothing...
And at the beginning of the episode, Zack and Cody can be seen watching a video of their Birth.

Allusions
The title is an allusion to the movie of the same name starring Shirley Temple.
When London asks, "Which one is Flipper?" she is making an allusion to the movie and TV shows about the dolphin Flipper.

Cody is tired of getting in trouble when Zack does something wrong, so he decides he needs to look different than his identical twin. After a failed attempt at hip hop clothing, Cody dyes his hair a honey mist auburn only to discover to his horror that it is bright red (essentially the color of Raggedy Andy). An official from the Week in Washington that Cody applied for comes to interview him. Embarrassed by his hair, Cody gets Zack to pretend to be him. Zack is unable to give coherent answers to the officials questions as he tries to guess Cody's intent who is doing charades to tell him the answers.

"Rumors" "Rock Star in the House"

"Big Hair & Baseball" is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
Plot
To give Carey some time to herself, Mr. Moseby reluctantly takes Zack and Cody to a Yankees-Red Sox baseball game. His lack of familiarity with the game (he was interested in ballet as a kid, not typical sports) embarrasses the boys. He also takes a win away from the Red Sox by catching a ball on its way into the stands, preventing the fielder from catching it and influencing the outcome of the game (similar to real-life incidents with Steve Bartman and the Cubs and Jeffrey Maier and the Yankees) causing him to become Public Enemy #1.
Meanwhile, London sets Maddie up on a date, but the humid weather makes her hair frizz. With her hair fixed in a spa day in Carey's suite with London, Maddie and her date Gavin hit it off, but sitting outside at a restaurant causes her hair to frizz again. As she tries to hide this from Gavin, he begins to sweat and London helps them know each other better because Gavin had a perspiration problem and Maddie had frizzy hair. They also claimed to "talk" to each other with their minds.
In the end, the boys defend Mr. Moseby in front of an angry crowd of Red Sox fans and a reporter, while Maddie and Gavin accept each other's outside appearance, as they are attracted by the person on the inside.

Trivia
10th appearance of Muriel
1st appearance of Patrick
With this episode aired, the Yankees went on to win the season series against the Red Sox, and eventually won the American League East for the 8th year in a row despite both the Yankees and the Red Sox respectively had the same record (95-67).

According to Muriel, a beautiful woman named Irene and her husband checked in the Tipton for their honeymoon night. But her husband betrayed her when he fell in love with an Italian woman and opened up a pizza parlor in Naples, Italy. But one night, angered by her husband, Irene threw her hairbrush at a mirror and it shattered into a thousand pieces. The sharp points of the glass hurtled toward her neck, slitting it and killing her. The group went into the suite and got scared enough that they felt like leaving. When London discovered her purse, it was empty. Irene had took her money. After hearing a story from Mr. Moseby about his encounter with Irene, Zack makes a bet with Cody that he couldn't stay one night at Suite 613. London, Maddie and Esteban come with them. After entering Suite 613, they get scared when they hear ghost noises and see a strange figure holding and eating a strange object. But it turns out to be Arwin eating a sub. Arwin has a mysterious invention that detects ghosts and their ectoplasm manifestations. The invention beeps when a ghost is around. They see something dead wrong with a picture of Irene. The painting of Irene's eyeballs and face is moving. Arwin gets so scared that he runs out of the suite, screaming. Esteban claims the ghost as "ghostie" and also claims he can speak with ghosts. When Esteban attempts to contact the ghost,he says "Hola, ghostie. Welcome to our--Ahh!" and starts making choking noises. Esteban gets possessed by the spirit of Irene. Then Esteban starts saying in Irene's voice "Who dares call me in the afterlife?" They start to get scared and smell pizza. "Does anyone smell pizza?" asks London to the rest of the group. Irene hates pizza and gets angry. Maddie taunts Irene and disappears. Everyone else disappears except Zack. Zack encounters scary things and it all turns out to be a sick prank to get him for the pranks he did on Cody, Arwin and Esteban. Cody wonders where his blanket is.

Both parents realize that what the other one brings is needed balance to their twins.

"Dad's Back" "Kisses & Basketball"

"Christmas at the Tipton" is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
A snowstorm traps everyone in the Tipton over Christmas. Zack and Cody think their parents want to get back together after they play Christmas music together in the lounge. Maddie makes sure London picks her for Secret Santa so she gets an expensive gift, but Mr. Moseby suggests that London makes a gift herself, and Maddie is shocked when London gives her a handmade sweater with three arms and no neckhole. Eventually Maddie accepts the gift because London was very sincere. Meanwhile, a couple named (coincidentally) Mary and Joseph are forced to stay at the Tipton when the bus breaks down. Later in the show, Zack and Cody get stuck in the elevator with Mary, who goes into labor immediately after the elevator gets stuck. Cody had studied a lot in health class at school, so he gave the woman directions as to what she must do while in labor (breathing, etc.), and then the elevator door is forced open by Arwin, and Mr. Moseby and Zack and Cody's parents help her deliver the baby, using London's gift as a blanket to wrap the newborn in.

Trivia
This was the first episode released direct-to-video.
Arwin received a toy ambulance as a Christmas present.
12th appearance of Esteban
6th appearance of Arwin
2nd appearance of Kurt
This episode makes several references to the birth of Jesus, for the following;
1: Parents named Mary and Joesph 2: Mary is pregnant. 3: When they got to the hotel (inn), there was no more room. 4: A child is born without the proper equipment.

Goofs
Just before Maddie asks London to pick her as Secret Santa, London is turned towards Maddie in the background, but in her next shot she is facing the opposite direction.
The baby is clean after being born, despite a lack of cleaning facilities on the elevator car. Maddie's sweater, which has been wrapped around the newborn, is also much too clean when handed back to her.
Instead of yelling through the elevator doors, it would have made more sense for Zack and Cody to use the emergency phones that elevators come equipped with.
London spells Maddie's name 'Matee', but she picked her name out of the bowl. She read her name, although she spelled it wrong.

"Christmas at the Tipton" "Pilot Your Own Life"

Kisses & Basketball is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
London's father insists she cuts back her spending. She enlists Maddie to help her and they discover her shopping addiction is related to her disappointment in her father's frequent absences. When Zack makes the winning shot to send their team to the basketball finals, Max kisses Zack. After Zack insults her by saying she isn't really a girl, Cody and Tapeworm convince him to take Max on a real date. Although he goes on the date reluctantly, he finds himself falling for Max - for both her sense of fun and her beauty. After revealing this was originally a "pity date," Max is furious at Zack - and Zack is unable to score a basket in the team's finals. The two agree to forget the whole incident and remain just good friends. Max passes the ball to Zack who makes the winning shot and gives the team the championship.

Trivia
At the time this episode was being filmed, Cole Sprouse (Cody Martin) was actually going out with Alyson Stoner (Max)
We find out Maddie has asthma or another type of allergy that requires an inhaler.
Voted the first new episode to be shown in 2006 in a Disney Channel online poll.
Arwin coaches the basketball team (because he was the only adult they could find). Team members include Zack, Max, and Tapeworm. Cody is also on the team, but other than one play where a basket is scored when Max accidentally bounces it off his head, he has always been on the bench.
After winning the championship, Carey kisses Arwin (much as Max did to Zack earlier in the episode) completely unaware of his crush on her.
The title of the episode is a parody of the teen film, "Love & Basketball (film)".
Even as Zack has a crush on Maddie he admits that he likes Max.
We find out that Mr. Tipton's name is Wilfred.
7th appearance of Arwin
4th appearance of Max
4th appearance of Tapeworm
2nd appearance of Patrick

Goofs
We see London's closet in this episode, and she has a remote controlled clothing device, but in That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana, she has only one mannequin and it isn't on the pole like in Kisses and Basketball. (It could be a different room though)
When Max pours the food on Zack's face, it is white and gets all over his suit, the next scenceshot, it's water and his tux is clean.
When Max puts ice cream on Zack there was ice cream all over him but in the next shot the ice cream was almost gone and all the ice cream on Zack's tuxedo was all gone.

"Kisses & Basketball" "Crushed"

"Pilot Your Own Life" is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
Cody and Zack listen to a motivational seminar that inspires Cody (and bores Zack) to advise people to "Pilot Your Own Life". He encourages Estaban to pursue his dream of becoming manager of the Tipton Hotel and his mom, Carey, to follow-up making her demo CD. Meanwhile, London is being photographed as part of a magazine's contest to be named the trendiest teen of the year, and seems sure that she will win. Afterwards, however, the woman in charge of the photoshoot notices Maddie, and likes her uniform, which Maddie has given her own personal touch (her father's tie). The magazine woman approvingly calls this look "blue-collar chic" and tells Maddie that she may also be considered for the contest. Maddie is worried about how London will react when she finds out that Maddie is competing against her, and goes to talk to Carey about it. When Maddie says that she's going to drop out of the contest, Cody intervenes and gives her a "pilot your own life" talk that inspires her with determination to win the contest, and she goes to work on her new look.
London grows concerned that the magazine has not called her yet. Maddie tries to break the news that she too has entered the contest but backs off the subject when London says that she regards competition as a chance to crush people. At that point the magazine woman returns to tell the two girls that they are both finalists, and that she will return the next week to photograph both of them and determine which of them has created the better look. London is shocked, and she and Maddie get into an argument, each vowing to beat the other in the contest.
Maddie is working on her new look when Muriel, the cleaning lady, comes in to "clean", quickly revealing that she is actually there because London paid her 10 dollars to spy on Maddie. Maddie is furious and has Zack spy on London with her camera phone. London is creating her outfit (and having Esteban wear it) when Zack comes in; London quickly figures out what he is doing and tells Zack that if he really loves Maddie, he'll make sure she loses the contestotherwise she'll become successful and travel far away, and Zack will never see her again. Zack therefore lies to Maddie, attempting to discourage her from the contest, but quickly changes his mind and says he can't lie to her and explains his worry that she will be successful and leave. Maddie reassures him that she won't be going anywhere.
Inspired by Cody, Estaban takes a night English class and Carey goes to work on her demo tape, both of them taking time off work to do so and frustrating Mr. Moseby. Maddie has stayed up three days and nights working on her outfit and is irritable from lack of sleep. When she and London encounter each other, each in their respective outfits, Maddie accuses London of copying her look, while London says that she made the look better. They begin tearing off pieces of each other's outfits and soon are in an all-out physical fight in the lobby, ripping each other's clothing to shreds. Moseby tries to break up the fight but they drag him in too, and his suit is also destroyed. At this point the magazine woman arrives to see the looks the two girls have created. They pose eagerly although their outfits are now in tatters. The woman says she's not sure whose look is better and will get back to them about it. As soon as the magazine woman leaves, the girls begin arguing again. They reveal their different viewpoints: Maddie is angry that London is rich and "has everything" but still tries to keep Maddie from winning the contest, while London says that her money is really her father's and fashion is the only thing that's truly hers, which Maddie is now trying to take away from her.
After they leave, Cody tells Moseby not to be angry at the girls, because he was the one encouraging them to pilot their own lives. At this point Esteban enters, very unhappy; he is now speaking with a strong Texas accent because his instructor is from Texas. Carey then enters the lobby as well and says that she was advised by a record producer to pursue becoming a lounge singer at the Tiptonthe job she already has. Cody says that he will at least get a better grade for community service than Zack, but it turns out that Zack has in fact excelled in community service over Cody, because he is going to receive an award for helping the homeless.
Eventually, Maddie and London make up and learn that the teen fashion magazine has put both girls on their cover in their ripped clothing calling it 'urban decay.'

Trivia
Motivational speaker Troy Robbins is a parody of Tony Robbins.
In this episode, we learn Maddie's full name is Madeline Margaret Genevieve Miranda Catherine Fitzpatrick.
We also learn Maddie's father's name is Irving and that it is his tie that she wears loosely over her uniform.
Esteban reveals his dream to eventually become the manager of the Tipton.

"Crushed"
"Boston Holiday"

"Commercial Breaks" is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Plot
Moseby announces that there will be a commercial for the Tipton shot at the hotel, and everyone must audition. He feels this to be a burden, but everyone else wants to star in the commercial. They all line up for the auditions, but during the auditions the director rejects everyone's performances. Carey realizes that the director is her ex-boyfriend; she tries to audition anyway, concealing her face, but the director recognizes her and rejects her. Eventually, London, the airhead heiress, gets the role, but only because her father signs the director's checks.
As they attempt to film the commercial, London's singing and dancing abilities turn out to be disastrous. Moseby is irritated and tells her that it's easy; she challenges him to do it if it's so easy, and he does, surprising everyone with a remarkable performance that the director exclaims is brilliant. London is fired and Moseby takes her place; she insists to the director that she can't be fired because of her father, but her father (who is watching everything through a camera from his private jet) calls her up and also tells her she's fired. Unfortunately, Moseby's initial performance wasn't filmed; on the next take, he trips over Dudley, Esteban's pet chicken, and sprains his ankle. The director is furious. Esteban says that it is not Dudley's fault that Moseby tripped over him, as Dudley's hat was too tight. Esteban then adjusts it. The next morning, Carey (whose role in the commercial had previously been that of a dancing suitcase), Zack, and Cody (along with a little force from Mr. Tipton) convince the director to put a family angle on the commercial. The boys and Carey star in the commercial and everything works out great.
