Paige at PCA is the thirteenth episode in Season 3 and the 39th overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. It is the 18th episode of Season 3 in streaming and production order. The episode aired on August 10, 2007.


A science star named Paige Howard (Miranda Cosgrove) attends PCA and is going to install her new energy converter to make PCA run on "Paige Power". This upsets Quinn because she realizes that she may no longer be the smartest girl on campus, and she gives up science, and starts acting like a careless student. Meanwhile, Chase and Logan try to make Michael think that he is going crazy for a psychology class after he refuses to do his share of the work.

Episode Trivia

  • Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) did not appear in this episode.
  • In the scene after Michael finds out that Chase and Logan were making him go insane, Drake Bell's song "Fool the World" can be heard in the background.
  • Lola goes barefoot and reveals that her feet are two different sizes. She is the third character to have a foot abnormality (Quinn has an extra toe on her right foot and Zoey has a corn chip-shaped toenail).
  • Throughout the episode, some people say that Quinn is two years older than Paige. But at the end of the show, the news reporter says Paige is 13 and Quinn is 14, so they are only one year apart. Paige's birthday could be earlier in the year than Quinn's though.
  • Miranda Cosgrove stars in this episode, likely to promote iCarly. However, the iCarly homepage can be spotted in a 2006 episode, before iCarly even existed; the pilot had been filmed and greenlit around that time.
  • Going by production order, this is the 18th episode of Season 3.
  • Coco's cousin returned in Season 4 in the episode Roller Coaster, where it turns out he manages Mystic Mountain. He asks Michael if he remembers the psychology incident, something Michael would rather not talk about.
