"Band in Boston" "To Catch a Thief"
Cody Goes to Camp is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
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.
Ľ 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.
Ľ 5th appearance of Esteban
Ľ 4th appearance of Muriel
Ľ 3rd appearance of Tapeworm
Ľ 1st appearance of Warren
Ľ 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.
Ľ 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.
Ľ 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.)
Ľ 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).
Ľ 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.
Ľ When London is adjusting the rear mirror she only rubs it and the mirror dosen't move.
Ľ 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.

"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.
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 Ĺfruitĺ 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 didnĺt want Esteban to get fired, and because they know that Esteban wouldnĺt 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."
Ľ Esteban's full name is revealed in the episode: Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez, occasionally it is mentioned in the series.
Ľ Esteban's father's full name is revealed also: Diego Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez. And his mother name: Gladis.
Ľ 6th appearance of Esteban
Ľ 5th appearance of Muriel
Ľ 2nd appearance of Mr. Mambossa
Ľ 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.
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.
Ľ This is Dylan Sprouse and Ashley Tisdale's favorite episode.
Ľ Each of the younger characters reveal their dream of what they would do with the money:
Ľ Zack would marry Maddie and live in a private suite with a huge gameroom. (Maddie would be Maddie Martin or Maddie Fitzpatrick-Martin.)
Ľ Cody would win the Nobel Prize in each academic area as well as baking and work with Dr. Inga.
Ľ Maddie would be become President of the United States and help protect the environment while having good-looking secret service agents.
Ľ 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.
Ľ London is already rich, so she wouldn't change a thing.
Ľ 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.
Ľ In the flashback, each character is portrayed by another character in the Suite Life of Zack & Cody:
Ľ Muriel - Maddie Fitzpatrick
Ľ Hot Peppers - Esteban Julio ůůů.blah blah blah (not writing it all!)
Ľ Hot Pepper's bodyguards - Zack Martin and Cody Martin
Ľ Flossy - Carey Martin
Ľ Detective - Mr. Moseby
Ľ London's Great Grandmother - London Tipton
Ľ 7th appearance of Esteban
Ľ 6th appearance of Muriel
Ľ 3rd appearance of Arwin
Ľ The episode title is occasionally printed wrong, adding or subtracting the word "Mad".
Ľ During Esteban's dream, Kim Rhodes who plays Carey has a bandage on her left ankle.
Ľ London's great-grandmother speaks with a Southern accent even though she's a Bostonian.
Ľ The episode title and the frantic search for treasure are based on the 1963 movie It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
Ľ 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.
Ľ In Muriel's flashback, Detective Moseby was mimicking James Cagney.
Ľ 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 fiancÚ that he loves her by singing 'sue me, sue me, what can you do me, I love you!..."
Ľ 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.
Ľ 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.
Ľ 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.
