"In the Line of Duty" is the 3rd episode of the second season of The Suite Life on Deck.
StoryIn the Line of Duty starts out with Mr. Moseby and Miss Tutweiller rushing to a classroom that has just been stink bombed. The room is under lock down because of the smell. They find out that Zack caused the smell and when they ask why Zack states that he caused the accident to prove to his science teacher that he could create a chemical reaction. Moseby and Tutweiller then take him away to be punished. Moseby opts for permanent detention (actually he wants to give Zack detention till he graduates which might never happen, so it could be permanent. But Miss Tutweiller asks for Zack to be hall monitor (she has the idea that if you give a rebellious teen a position of power they will become model citizens). Moseby disagrees saying they just need to throw Zack in the brig (which Zack agrees to), but end up going with Tutweiller’s idea.
While that is going on, Cody and Bailey are seen on the Sky Deck trying to plan a date, but neither have time (When Cody gets off work, Bailey has to go to physics. When Bailey has time before her Mandarin class, Cody is tutoring.) They have even less time because Bailey is going to an interview for a new job because her family is getting sued because their neighbors slipped on horse droppings, and her parents couldn’t afford to give her an allowance anymore.
Later, Kirby is showing Zack the ropes for being a hall monitor, but so far Zack isn’t doing that good of a job (he lets Woody walk by without a hall pass). Kirby gives a lecture about how aware a hall monitor has to be or the kids will sneak by with whatever they want (consequently while he is giving this lecture a bunch of students sneak by with whatever they want). Zack tries again by actually stopping Woody when he comes by again. He gives Woody a detention. This starts Zack’s job of hall monitor.
Next up, we have Bailey arriving at the new boutique that just opened up, One of a Kind. When she arrives she meets up with London, who is the owner of the store. After a quick interview, Bailey ends up with the job (even though the only store she has ever worked at was Buck’s Bait and Beauty Barn).
In the meantime, Zack is really taking his job as hall monitor seriously (he gave three kids detention for chewing gum in the hallway). Moseby shows up and comments about the great job Zack is doing. Zack says he likes the rush of catching people doing something wrong and that he finally understands Mr. Moseby. Moseby is overjoyed, stating that Zack has really changed. Miss. Tutweiller walks by and Mr. Moseby admits that she was right, and he gives her a hug (but Zack gives them detention for PDA or public display of affection.)
Simultaneously, Bailey completes her first sale at One of a Kind. However, when London finds out, she gets mad at Bailey. Bailey asks why (seeing London hired her as a sales girl), but London says she only hired Bailey because she was under qualified and thought that she wouldn’t have been able to sell anything. Bailey then asks why London would open a store if she didn’t want to sell anything. London goes on to explain that her father wouldn’t let her expand her closet, so she opened a store as a masquerade for her closet (hence the name of One of a Kind, seeing the clothes are only London’s size and there are only one of each.) Bailey still gets paid, but now to scare away customers instead of selling to them. Cody shows up to spend a little time with Bailey before he has to go to his next class, yet they are interrupted by a customer. Bailey then says that they never time to spend together and that she doesn’t get off till right before curfew. Cody, not happy about the predicament either, says that they will just have to meet after curfew. Bailey is shocked, but likes Cody’s new bad boy attitude (but then Cody’s nerdiness kicks in and falls ending up with a pink boa on his neck.)
Later that night, Cody and Bailey meet up with each other on the Sky Deck (they run to each other in slow-mo, but crash into each other which leads to Bailey hugging Cody to make sure he is alright.) Bailey, excited that they snuck out, and that they are now under the stars, alone together, asks Cody to kiss her. Everything is ruined when Zack stops them as they are about to kiss. Zack then busts them for sneaking out after curfew. Cody tries to talk Zack out of giving them both detentions (seeing they are both too busy, and Cody would always bail Zack out, so Zack should return the favor). Zack still gives them detention, saying how he doesn’t make the rules, he just enforces them. Cody gets mad and throws the book overboard. Zack tells Cody to assume the position (the one cops use with people who break the law), but Cody resists and ends up getting harassed by Zack (Zack kicks his trick knee.)The next day, Bailey is back working at One of a Kind. London gets mad because there is a customer in the dressing room, and she tells Bailey to get rid of her (Bailey isn’t having a good day because she has detention that day, her job doesn’t make any sense, and her boyfriend is a victim of hall monitor brutality.) Bailey goes up to the customer and tries to nicely to tell the customer the dress isn’t for her. But, when the customer tells Bailey that her boyfriend might be proposing to her, Bailey feels bad and allows her to buy the dress. However, London finds out and angrily chases after Bailey which leads to them getting detentions from Zack for running in the hallway.
After Zack puts all of his friends in detention (much to Miss. Tutweiller’s and all of the other students’ displeasure), but now he faces the aftermath of his job. All of his classmates now hate him. Kirby tells him that being in law enforcement is hard, lonely, and stressful life (that’s why Kirby is bald.) Zack, not wanting to be bald, rushes off to Mr. Moseby to quit his job. They have a conversation about how Zack goes to the extremes with everything and that he should find a balance (like just being a normal student that follows the rules.) And even though Zack doesn’t agree with it (saying it is boring), he says that he will try, but not before he gets a detention to make it up to his friends (he sets off another sink bomb.)
Meanwhile, Cody and Bailey are in detention. They realize that it is not so bad, for they finally get to be together (even if they are ‘prisoners of love’ as Cody says.) They go in for a kiss, but they are interrupted by Miss. Tutweiller (saying there is no kissing in detention which causes London to stop kissing herself in the mirror. But sneaks another one.) Kirby brings Zack in for detention. Zack thinks that everything will be alright, but his classmates still are mad at him and try to get revenge (which Miss. Tutweiller conveniently misses with a coffee break.)
The episode ends with Bailey called to the boutique by London. It seems that London’s father found out about London’s scheme and is now forcing her to sell knick-knacks in her store. So now Bailey gets paid to do an actual job and is able to be nice to customers.
- Cody's line, "Bailey's comet", is a reference to 1P/Halley, known as Halley's Comet.
- Moseby is revealed to have a jacket that despenses several pocket hankies in several folding styles out of its pocket
