Michael and Logan must help Chase become a wonderful dancer before a dance contest to dance with Zoey. Lola wants to get the lead role in the school play, when Lola sees a handsome guy named, Simon from England, she develops a crush on him, But in order to spend time with him, Lola asks him to tutor her so she can speak with a British accent. Also, Michael, Logan and Quinn try to be customer of the week to get free coffee.


  • At the beginning of the episode, the dance contest was said to be on Saturday. However, when Lola and Zoey are talking in the lounge, Zoey says the dance contest is on Friday.
  • Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) did not appear in this episode.
  • By the time this episode aired, all of season 4 had been filmed.
  • This episode, like many other episodes of Zoey 101, does English accents that are completely wrong. Nobody who lives in England sounds posh anymore. These accents existed many years ago but have now died out.
  • When Zoey, Michael and Logan were talking, Michael can be heard singing the theme song to Zoey 101.
  • Going by production order, this is the 21st episode of Season 3.
  • This episode aired as a part of Nickelodeon's Back to School Bash, along with premieres of Drake & Josh, iCarly, Unfabulous and Just Jordan.
    • The Drake & Josh episode that aired the same night as this episode was also called "Dance Contest.”
  • When Simon was tutoring Lola on how to speak with a British accent, it’s a parody of Professor Henry Higgins teaching Eliza Doolittle how to speak clearly from the Broadway musical, My Fair Lady.
  • Molly Talbertson, who ironically does not interact with Lola, is portrayed by Ashley Rickards who would later star with Victoria Justice in the 2017 film, The Outcasts.
