PCA Confidential (also known as Clip Show) is the 14th episode in Season 4, the 26th episode of Season 3 the 65th overall and final episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The episode aired on December 14, 2007 in Canada and May 2nd, 2008 in the United States. Originally planned to be a season 3 episode, this episode aired as the epilogue of the series finale.
Zoey, Chase, and Stacey take a walk down memory lane as prospective new students ask them about their experiences attending PCA. Stacey becomes upset when no one asks her any questions. Questions for Zoey and Chase include queries about dating, science and technology, and dress codes, among many other things.
- Zoey and Chase are the only main characters to appear in this episode, although the rest of the main characters are shown in flashbacks.
- This episode was originally planned to be a season 3 episode, but Nickelodeon aired it at the end of season 4 in the United States. However, it still premiered as part of season 3 in Canada.
- Because this aired after Chasing Zoey in the US, a new version of the episode was created where Chase and Zoey respond to the question about them being a couple differently. Clips from Chasing Zoey were also added.
- This is the only episode of Zoey 101 in which Michael does not make an actual appearance, although he makes appearances through flashbacks.
- Nicole Bristow and Dana Cruz appear in flashbacks from seasons 1 and 2.
- This episode is similar to "iBloop" from iCarly, "Blooptorious" from Victorious, BlooperEpisode from Sam & Cat, and "Dr. Phyllis Show" from Drake & Josh, episodes of other Dan Schneider-created shows in which the episode includes flashbacks of previous episodes of the series.
- The United States releases of the season 3 and 4 DVDs both omit this episode, making it the only episode of the series not available on DVD.
- In Canada, the season 3 DVD includes the season 3 version of the episode.
- This is the final appearance of Zoey Brooks, Chase Matthews, Coco Wexler and Stacey Dillsen.
- Despite this being Stacey and Coco's last appearance of the show, Stacey would later on appear in the iCarly episodes "iStart a Fanwar" and "iHire an Idiot" as well as the Sam and Cat episode "#MadAboutShoe". While Coco appears in the Sam & Cat episode "#FirstClassProblems".
- Canada was the first country to aired this episode than the US (Which means this was made in 2007).
- When Chase is thinking back to mentions of his bushy hair, it includes a clip from Dance Contest, when Michael said, "...crazy Jewish Afro," but Chase was asleep when Michael said that in the actual episode.
- During one of the flashbacks, a scene is shown when Zoey pours a drink on Lance right after she says she doesn't want to go with him in the limousine. However, this scene doesn't appear anywhere in the episode it is from (Son of a Dean), hinting that this scene was deleted.
