Episode Summary Edit
We are introduced to 12-year-old identical twins Zack Martin and Cody Martin whose mom (Carey Martin) is the new headline singer at the extremely fancy Tipton Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The family live in a suite on the 23rd floor of the hotel. As the 'new guys' they have trouble making friends at their new school, with only two outcasts being friendly; Tapeworm, a tall boy who is a math genius, and Max, a girl who dresses like a boy but who can dance fantastically. The boys decide to take her to their suite in the hotel in order to teach their mom some moves. When other students learn that they live at the Tipton they all want to hang out with the twins. Soon dozens of students start showing up and the hotel is overrun by pre-teens. The boys come to realize that all of the kids like them only because of the benefits of the hotel, and recognize Tapeworm and Max as their only true friends. Max and Tapeworm end up as the ones hurt in all this.
Maddie, the beautiful teenage candy counter girl at the hotel, reluctantly agrees to tutor London, the daughter of the owner of the hotel chain, in math in return for advice on how to ask out boys. Maddie goes out with Lance the hotel lifeguard and discovers that, although he is cute, he is also pretty dim and is obsessed with talking about water and nothing else.
