  • Zack: Lets put our names in.
    • Cody: Fine. But just in case they announce the winner on the radio, I'm not going to use my own name.
    • Zack: Good thinking, me neither. So, what name did you use?
    • Cody: I'm Wing Lee. How about you?
    • Zack: Cody Martin.
    • Cody: I hate you.
  • Zack: (to Cody) Look at you, what do you do all day?
    • Cody: Schoolwork.
    • Zack: And what do you do when we get home?
    • Cody: Homework.
    • Zack: And on the weekends?
    • Cody: Weekendwork.
    • Zack: There's no such thing as weekendwork!
  • Cody: What's Mom doing here at the mall?
    • Zack: I don't know. She works like two hours a day. She has to spend the rest of her life somewhere.
  • Snooty Saleswoman: (brings Carey some bottled water) I hope it's cold enough for you.
    • Carey: Well, did you hold it right next to your heart?
  • Brandi: You know, when I was your age—
    • London: When was that, 20 minutes ago?!
  • Brandi: (to London) You will show your stepmother some respect!
    • London: (gestures to door) I will show my stepmother the door!
  • London: (about being grounded by Brandi) I hope you're happy!
    • Brandi: A mother is never happy when she punishes her child.
    • London: Well, the child ain't so thrilled either.
  • Mr. Moseby: (to London about Brandi) That may be, London, but at least she's doing something that the other three haven't.
    • London: What?
    • Mr. Moseby: She's trying. Remember how number three just called you "that kid"?
    • London: Oh I remember her... "that woman".
  • Cody: (to Carey) Why did she come in here? She can't afford this stuff. I should know, I do her taxes.
  • London: (to Brandi) Look, I don't need you in my life.
    • Maddie: What London means is—
    • London: I don't want you in my life.
    • Maddie: And by that she means—
    • London: You're not my mother!
    • Brandi: Look, I'm going to be around for a long, long time. Your father and I love each other.
    • London: (points her charm bracelet at Brandi) That's what step-mother #1 said, step-mother #2 said they were soul mates, and step-mother #3 was gone before the charm was even finished. You're just another one of theses.


  • This is the only time where one of London's stepmothers is seen.


  • When the store owner goes over to see where the boys went after they disappeared, the inside of the dressing room is partly visible.
