  • The working title for this episode was "Big Brother".
  • From this episode onward, the episode still continues during the end credits scene..


  • Zack: I can't believe Mom is making us buy our own bikes. What's she good for?
    • Cody: Food, shelter, clothing, love.
    • Zack: Well, you can't ride love to the mall.
  • Mr. Moseby: Welcome, Spencer, to the Tipton!
    • Spencer: Actually the light on the "n" blew out, so now it's called the "Tipto".
    • Mr. Moseby: Oh.
    • London: I thought my last name was pronounced Tipton.
  • Mr. Moseby: Esteban, it's almost checkout time. Hurry up to Spencer's room and get his bags.
    • Esteban: He is leaving so soon? It's only been one day.
    • Mr. Moseby: One day is like seven years in Spencer time.
  • Cody: Mom, I've got brother problems here.
    • Mr. Moseby: Please do not talk to me about brothers. Spencer is giving me such a migraine.
    • Cody: Zack is selfish!
    • Mr. Moseby: Spencer's a bully!
    • Cody: He doesn't listen!
    • Mr. Moseby: He has no consideration for me!
    • Cody: And he stinks personality-wise and frankly, his body odor!
  • Esteban: (to Maddie) Wait a minute. Should we be taking advantage of poor Miss London like this?
    • Maddie: Please. When she had trouble potty training her dog, she made you dress up like a hydrant.
    • Esteban: Oh, let's really stick it to her good!
  • Spencer: Don't be mad just because Mom liked me best.
    • Mr. Moseby: Oh, she did not! You know the reason why she treated you better.
    • Spencer: Don't go there!
    • Mr. Moseby: Oh, yeah!
    • Spencer: Don't go there!
    • Mr. Moseby: Yeah, because you were lactose intolerant!
    • Spencer: Ooh, you went there!
    • Mr. Moseby: Who's afraid of cheese? Who's afraid of cheese?


  • Cody told a guy who works at the Tipton that their bike has pegs, but when Zack brings the bike in even before the bike falls apart you can clearly see no pegs.
  • During the scene where Carey is consoling Cody and Mr. Moseby, her turquoise pendant disappears and reappears beneath her shirt collar twice without her ever touching it.
  • In the scene where Zack hands Cody the broken bike, you can see a strand of Zack's hair sticking though one of the holes in the helmet, but in the scene following, Zack's hair is no longer sticking out.
