Plot Edit

Zoey, Nicole, Dana, and Vicky are playing a board game called Confess & Stress. Quinn joins them. Chase and Logan deliver some sushi to the girls. Logan says that he feels bad about the tension he's had with the girls so he gets them a huge stuffed teddy bear. Chase says that it wasn't his idea and it was all Logan's idea. The girls continue their game. During Nicole's turn, she confesses that she has a list on how cute boys' lips are. During Zoey's turn, Zoey is forced to prank call their teacher. The next morning for some reason, Michael, Logan, and an unnamed guy makes fun of Nicole about her cute lips list. Then, Logan asks Zoey about her prank call to Mr. Callahan. Everyone ends up knowing what they confessed and the stressful things they did. Chase's boss, Kazu, tells Chase that Logan was sick and couldn't show up. More embarrassing things end up spreading around the school. As the girls are arguing about who did it, it turns out the culprits are Chase and Michael. They had put a camera in the teddy bear's eyes. Chase didn't know about this.

Zoey asks Nicole and Quinn when this started happening. They think back and eventually conclude that there was a webcam in the bear. Quinn tests this out and it turns out to be true. Zoey runs in the guys room and furiously asks Chase if he had something to do with this. Chase doesn't even know what she was talking about. Zoey explains and Chase reminds her that he didn't have anything to do with the teddy bear. Zoey turns on Logan's computer and sees what's happening in the girls lounge. Chase is also angry with Logan for calling in sick and giving all his deliveries to him so that he could spy on them. They tell the girls about this and Michael, who had now learned that spying was wrong. They plan revenge on Logan. Michael, who was now in on tricking Logan, makes Logan watch what's going on in the girls lounge at 8:20. They see Kazu catch Chase for stealing sushi, Zoey smash a vase on Kazu's head (she used a breakaway glass), and plan to blame it on Logan. Logan tells Dean Rivers, but when he comes to check it out, nothing's wrong. Logan is so desperate to tell him what he saw that he ended up telling him that he put a webcam in the bear to spy on the girls. Logan ends up getting in trouble. The girls put the bear on the beach so that they can watch the sunset from their room.

  • This is the first episode in which the plots coincide. 

Goofs Edit

  • When the camera cuts to Quinn, who is holding up the cue cards, you see that after Kazu says his line, Zoey is supposed to go, "You can't expel him!" and then, Chase is supposed to go, "My mom'll kill me!" However, in real life, after Kazu says his line, Chase goes, "Expelled?!" and Kazu goes, "You're going to prison!"
  • Why would Chase tell everybody to be in the girl's dorm at 8:15 pm? According to what is said in the episode, "Defending Dustin", boys aren't allowed in a girl's dorm after 8:00 pm.
  • Chase says that the girls should be at the dorm at 8:15 pm, but while Logan is getting Dean Rivers, it's suddenly daytime.
  • If Quinn already knew there was a webcam in the teddy bear, why would she start eating a fake plant right in the front of the bear when Logan could have been watching?
  • In the very last scene, the laptop is sitting in Zoey's lap with her friends watching the relaxing beach scene. Then they show a close-up of the laptop's screen and it is no longer on her lap but on a tabletop with decor around it along with two laptop speakers sitting beside it, none of which was on Zoey's lap.
  • During the end, when the girls seems to be watching the sunset on the beach, if one would look out the window, that person would see that it's midday outside, and it looked nowhere near sunset.
  • At the end when the camera shows us Nicole, Zoey, and Dana sitting on the sofa, we can see through the window that it is a totally different view from the pilot episode and it is on the first floor with a view of steps.
  • Logan puts a webcam in the bear to spy on the girls. In real life, doing so is grounds for expulsion and possible jail sentence.
