Did You Know?


The whole episode is based on false facts. Cody was getting an A in woodwork and Zack was failing in all his classes the previous year at school (according to their report cards in Ep "Smarter and Smarter"). So Cody knows a lot more about woodwork than Zack and should be able to make a clock, never mind a birdhouse, and Zack should not be able to make a clock. See more »


Mr. Woodburn: Remember, this counts towards one third of your final grade.
Cody Martin: [shrieks]
Zack Martin: Would you relax? You're gonna do fine.
Bob: No, he won't. He's hopeless.
Zack Martin: Not helping!
Bob: Not lying!

this episode ends showing what great relationship the boys really have and how much they care for each other. Zack and Cody get to pick a extra class. Zack picks wood shop and Cody picks some really hard math class. then when no one shows up for the math class it is taking away so Cody joins wood shop so he can get an easy A. but it turns out he is not so good with wood as he thought. Cody is so scared about getting a bad grade that Zack who created a master piece gives it to Cody so he can get an A. Cody ends up confessing that it was not his. While this is going on London stole a story Maddie wrote and handed it in as a school essay. she gets an A and a company wants to turn it into a children's book. Maddie is jealous and wants the glory. but in the end London ends up getting sued for copying another book word for word. this is an excellent episode, and my favorite so far.
