Rumor of Love

Alone at PCA is the third episode in Season 4 and the 55th overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The episode aired on February 3, 2008.


The gang must stay on campus over spring break when the trip to Yosemite is cancelled. Stacey is waiting at PCA for her parents to pick her up to go skiing but they are four days late. Dean Rivers' golf trophy gets smashed and he assumes it was Michael and Logan so he puts them under dorm arrest.

Zoey and the girls (and Mark) set out to find the real culprit, who ultimately turns out to be Seamus Finnigan, the PCA-groundskeeper who also happens to be an old classmate of Dean Rivers from when PCA was still a boys-only school—Seamus feels that Dean Rivers never deserved the trophy, and the two of them get into a really brutal fight when the girls explain to the Dean that Seamus is the real culprit.

In the end, at a bonfire, Logan and Michael thank the girls and Mark for proving that they were innocent—when the guys question who won the fight between Seamus and Dean Rivers, it would seem that the two men have buried the hatchet and become friends.

Episode Trivia

  • Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) did not appear in this episode.
  • This is the first episode that doesn't have any reminiscence or after mention of Chase.
  • This is the first time someone used the word "gravy" regarding looks. The second time is in "Quinn Misses The Mark."
  • Logan and Michael's room guards remain only in the door when the two can go out the window of the room.
  • Dean Rivers' fight with Finnegan is a reference to Captain Kirk's fight with Finnegan (same name) in the Star Trek episode "Shore Leave".
  • Before turning on the leafblower, Seamus says "Say hello to my wee friend!", a reference to the line, "Say hello to my little friend!" in Scarface.
