In this episode of the Disney Channel’s comedy series, the hotel-dwelling twin brothers take on their latest challenge: starting their secondary education. They’re joined by the ever-dense socialite London, whom they learn is also a newcomer to the world of public schooling. Since she got kicked out from her upscale private academy for skipping out on every single class she was supposed to attend, she’s shuffled off to the same public school as the Martins. London chooses to handle the situation with her own typical finesse: she pays people to be her friends, and even to attend her classes for her, even as she laments over the size of the school lockers and tries to have her own specially custom-built. When the school principal finds out about her plans, however, all of her paid-for buddies neatly vanish, leaving her along to explain a walk-in locker with a skylight.
On the other hand, the twins start working on their own interests. Cody looks forward to checking out a ton of extracurricular gigs, while Zack starts checking out the high school girls instead, even as they’re both just getting adjusted to being freshmen. Their pal Bob also reveals his intention of becoming a jock, and even faces off against a bully later on. When Zack tries to chat up and charm a sophomore named Amber, her jealous boyfriend comes along and the amorous twin winds up headfirst in a trash can. When Nia comes to Zack’s rescue and introduces her fists to the guy’s face, both she and Zack also get in hot water with the principal.
Throughout all this, one might think that honor student Cody would actually manage to stay out of trouble. Instead, he butts heads with the same bully that his brother tangled with, just in time for the school principal to bear witness. And at the end of the day, the entire gang gets to cool their heels together in detention.
