Cute Quotes About Relationships Biography
He was born ten minutes before his twin brother, Cody, at St. Joseph's Hospital in Seattle, Washington at 6:30 on a Saturday. Zack and Cody were born on February 20, 1993. The year of his birth is not clear. In The Suite Life on Deck episode, "Das Boots", it is said to be 1993. However, in the The Suite Life of Zack & Cody episode, "Poor Little Rich Girl", a baby video of him and his brother is date-stamped September 23, 1992. He is typically the insecure, unstudious, outgoing and often lazy twin, who usually dresses in skater clothes. At school, he is a straight "D" student. In an episode of The Suite Life on Deck, Zack admits that he slacks off and either makes Cody do his work or just steals Cody's old papers because he knows that no matter how hard he tries or how much he studies, he'll never be able to match Cody intellectually and always feels inadequate compared to his highly intelligent twin. Zack frequently bullies Cody because of this, and both shows frequently either show Zack insulting Cody or mention pranks he's played, such as tying a rope to the S.S. Tipton and hanging Cody off the ship or gluing Cody to his desk. In spite of this, Zack is very protective of Cody and will step in if he sees somebody else causing trouble; the best example is in the Suite Life of Zack and Cody episode Elections, where Zack humiliates Cody by putting an embarrassing picture of him for everybody in school to see, only to come to his defense and tell everybody to back off once the other students start insulting and mocking Cody. Zack loves wood shop (a class in which he actually does well). In an episode of The Suite Life on Deck, it is shown that he and Cody have ancestors from Sweden.

The Suite Life of Zack & Cody[edit source | editbeta]
Zack has an obsession with women, and has always had a crush on Maddie Fitzpatrick, who works at the candy counter. He always calls her "Sweet Thang". Zack usually picks on his brother but becomes very protective of him when other people are mean to him Although he mocks his brother often (most notably for being intellectual, showing emotion to their mother and for being bacillophobic), Zack is himself a momma's boy. In "Ghost of Suite 613" after being frightened he ran to his mother for comfort. On another occasion he was seen refusing to let go of his mother before attending Seven Seas High - a moment which Cody used to his advantage in an e-mail to their friends.
Zack also frequently gets into trouble sometimes along with Cody. He also is the lazier of the two, often bossing Cody around. He is the charming, cool, funny, and greedy twin, but can also have a soft spot, and caring spot, for example in the episode: "Election" the two brothers run for president, and Zack almost beats him unfairly, but then helps Cody win. Also in the On Deck episode "Shipnotized" Zack stands up for Cody after Harvard's dean of admissions makes him cry, telling him he'd be lucky to get into clown college. Zack is also known to put Cody down a lot, though he is quick to stand up for him when necessary. He truly loves his brother, even though sometimes he doesn't show it. Most of the time he receives no retaliation for these actions, although he seems to be intimidated by Cody whenever Cody stands up to him; in "Broke 'n' Yo Yo", after Cody finds out that Zack stole his student cash card and spent all of their money on girls, Zack runs away in fear when Cody comes after him. Zack does not have as much knowledge but has as much common sense as his brother. Rarely seen is Zack's emotional side, but when we do it is usually Cody or Maddie who's brought it on. Although he and Cody are often shown arguing and even fighting, they both share a close platonic relationship with each other, and despite his frequent complaints about Cody whenever the two are apart Zack misses him and goes to great lengths to see him again; in "Cody Goes To Camp", Zack misses Cody so badly that he convinces London to drive him to Camp Knock-A-Number where Cody is having a great time with other, as Zack would put it 'nerds'. When Cody realizes Zack is lonely without his brother, he sends everybody away so the brothers can have a private talk about their relationship.
One of Zack's skills is his musical ability. He was the lead singer of the band Rock Squared and won an airband contest with Woody, singing a parody of "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses. This was possibly inherited from his father or mother. In the series finale,Zack and cody left the hotel to the SS Tipton.
The Suite Life on Deck[edit source | editbeta]
In the spin-off, Zack still maintains the same general personality he had on the Suite Life of Zack & Cody, but shows signs of maturity. While on the ship, he works at the juice bar and lived alone in a cabin, until Marcus Little boarded the ship and became his cabin-mate, and enjoys the freedom sea school grants him. He also had a crush on Bailey, but stopped liking her because she had too much "baggage." Even though he flirts with other girls, he's never forgotten Maddie, as displayed in "Maddie on Deck." On The Suite Life of Zack & Cody Zack is usually pulling Cody into his schemes; on The Suite Life on Deck he often involves London.
