Zoey's Ribs is the sixteenth episode in Season 3 and the 42nd overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The episode aired on September 28, 2007.


After a deceased relative of Zoey's sends her "a thousand pounds of ribs", Zoey, Chase, Michael, and Logan agree to have a rib cook-off. After a fierce feud between Michael and Logan, they decide to compete against each other with Zoey on Michael's team, and Chase on Logan's. Meanwhile, Quinn accidentally blows Mark's eyebrows off in an experiment gone awry, and she creates a stimulant that accelerates hair growth. Unfortunately, it works too well; a glob of hair grows out of her armpits, and Mark's eyebrows become very bushy.


  • Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) did not appear in this episode.
  • This is the second time that a main character's family member dies. The first time is when Chase's Grandma died on both hers and Chase's birthday in Chase's Grandma.
  • This episode isn't the last time that Lola questions why Quinn dates Mark. She also does it in the Season 4 episode, "Trading Places".
  • The song used at the end "Saucy Monky - Permanent midnight" was also played in the opening of Jet X.
  • Mark usually has a somewhat dull and quiet tone of voice. However, in this episode, he yells a lot.
  • The concept of using an object in a sock as a weapon was later seen in the iCarly episodes "iTake on Dingo" and "iParty with Victorious."
