Storyline

While Cody is preparing for the Boston Spelling Bee, Zack tries to borrow money from his mom for video games. When his mom won't give him money, he borrows from everyone else in the hotel. He finally borrows $30 at 20% interest from a rather large bully. He tells Zack to pay up, "or else." After Cody and the bully become the final two contestants, the bully offers Zack another out: get Cody to lose, "or else." Zack realizes that he should let Cody do his best. It turns out, however, that the "or else" isn't being beaten up- it's having his mom find out. Written by Anonymous

Amazing!
27 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a 12 year old girl, I really like the Sprouse twins... so naturally I loved this episode. It should be on in 2 weeks or so, but it was awesome. The plot is pretty good, Cody's entering a spelling bee and Zack borrowed too much money from a contestant, and can't pay it back. Needless to say, Zack ended up trying to get Cody to lose.... and I don't want to spoil the ending, so wait to see it. The sub-plot line was a charity project for Maddie's school.... something surprising happens that makes London come along for the ride (you'll have to wait and see!) but anyways, London gets a not-so-fun lesson about what charity REALLY means. Have an awesome time watching this and feel free to message me for more info!
