Little do people know, he is in fact a cheater; Chase caught him taking pictures of a history test with his cell phone. Chase must choose: not to tell the teacher and let Vince cheat more or make PCA lose its biggest football game. Logan, Michael, and the football team convince him not to tell, but Zoey thinks he should. Meanwhile, Zoey, Lola, Quinn, and Mark put healthy snacks called Moon Bars to try and persuade the students to stop eating junk food, but ends in chaos as they turn out to be addictive after Quinn and Mark put cactus juice in them to enhance their flavor.

Episode Trivia

  • Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) did not appear in this episode.
  • This episode marks the second time blood is shown. The first time being Welcome to PCA
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Vince Blake.
  • When Zoey, Quinn, and Lola were watching all of the PCA students going crazy over the moon bars, a tall, short haired blond girl in red was just leaving the vending machine with a moon bar. In the next scene where Zoey was talking to Lola and Quinn, the tall girl was walking up to the vending machine again.
  • While Zoey, Quinn, and Lola were placing Moonbars in the vending machine, if you look closely, you can see a Snickers bar.


  • Zoey and Lola tasted the moonbars with cactus juice, but didn't get addicted. This was likely due to the fact that they only had one small bite.
