Episode Chronology



Dinner For Two Many

Vince is Back is the eighth episode in Season 4 and the 60th overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The episode aired on March 22, 2008.


The gang is surprised to find out that the bully and football star, Vince Blake, is back after being expelled. The girls talk to Dean Rivers so he would expel Vince. The girls decide to just ignore him, which proves harder then expected when Lola starts to constantly make out with him, but the guys decide that it's time for some revenge, or "comeuppance" as Michael calls it. Meanwhile, Quinn and Logan are struggling to pretend they still hate each other and find themselves slipping up repetitively.

Episode Trivia

  • Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) did not appear in this episode.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Vince Blake, since the episode, The Great Vince Blake, in Season 3.
  • During the beginning of this episode, Chase Matthews appears in flashbacks from the season 3 episode, The Great Vince Blake.
  • In this episode, Lola starts her first serious relationship on the show.
  • is on Michael and Logan's computer when Zoey and Quinn walk into their room to tell them they think Vince has changed. A voice clip of Sam and Carly from the show can be heard.
  • The voice of the yoga teacher is portrayed by series creator, Dan Schneider, although the actor portraying him obviously isn't.
  • The Cheesy-Bake oven Dean Rivers uses in this episode resembles the original Easy-Bake Oven made by Kenner toys.


  • When Michael yells "NOOO!" upon seeing Vince, a crowd of students can be seen in the background staring at him in surprise. However, when Michael turns around and the camera cuts to a shot of him screaming, the kids are nowhere in sight.
    • Also, you see his tongue is completely red from his Rocky Pop, but after he tumbles over the lunch table and goes, "Vince Blake is back," you see his tongue and it is normal color.
  • Vince claims in this episode that he doesn't drink coffee, but in Coffee Cart Ban, he reportedly drinks coffee.
    • Maybe he started drinking it sometime between the episodes.
  • Michael says "to comeuppance" means to get revenge, but this doesn't make sense, as comeuppance is a noun, and cannot be used as a verb. Therefore, the more accurate sentence would be "Comeuppance is a punishment or fate that someone deserves."
