|Season 3, Episode 24|
George Doty IV
December 14, 2007 (Canada)
PCA Confidential (also known as Clip Show) is the twenty-fourth episode in Season 3 and the 50th overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The episode aired on December 14, 2007 in Canada and May 2, 2008 in the United States.
Zoey, Chase, and Stacey take a walk down memory lane when prospective new students question them about their experiences attending PCA. Stacey is very annoyed because no one asked her any questions. Questions for Zoey and Chase include queries about dating, science and technology, dress codes, amongst many other things.
- Zoey and Chase are the only main characters to appear in this episode, although the rest of the main characters are shown in flashbacks.
- This episode was originally planned to be a season 3 episode, but Nickelodeon aired it as the last episode. However, in some countries, it still airs along with season 3.
- Because this aired after Chasing Zoey in the U.S., there was some confusion because people were asking Chase and Zoey if they were dating and they acted like they were not. Moreover, in some airings, clips from Chasing Zoey such as the two sharing a kiss were included.
- This is the only episode of Zoey 101 in which Michael does not make an actual appearance, although he makes appearances in flashbacks.
- Nicole Bristow and Dana Cruz appear in flashbacks from seasons 1 and 2.
- This episode is similar to "iBloop" from iCarly, "Blooptorious" from Victorious, and "Dr. Phyllis Show" from Drake & Josh, episodes of other Dan Schneider-created shows in which the focus of the episode is flashbacks of previous episodes of the series.
- When Chase is thinking back to mentions of his bushy hair, it includes a clip from Dance Contest, when Michael said, "...crazy Jewish afro," but Chase was asleep when Michael said that in the actual episode
- When flashbacks of Coco are being shown, one of the clips presented shows Coco crying because of her job in the episode Fake Roommate. However, since PCA Confidential was originally going to be aired during season 3 in the USA (except Canada) and that Fake Roommate is a season 4 episode, the events seen in Fake Roommate didn't happen yet. The U.S. Version of PCA Confidential would make much more sense since it was moved to be the last episode of Season 4.
