"Pilot Your Own Life" is the 23rd episode of the first season The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Cody is inspired by a guest speaker, Troy Robbins, and tries to do the same with his friends. Meanwhile, London and Maddie compete savagely in the fashion shootout of the year to get on the cover of Teen Trends.
Zack and Cody are discussing what to do for their school community service hours. Cody then hears a speech from a guest speaker giving a seminar on piloting your own life, and Cody gets inspired and tells the Tipton Hotel workers to pilot their own life, which forces them to neglect their jobs at the hotel. Cody eventually fails with everyone who he attempted to inspire, but Zack gets an award for community service after the mayor saw him give all the left-over restaurant food to the poor.
Meanwhile, London and Maddie compete for the front page on a fashion magazine.

- Mr. Moseby: Oh! It d'oes'n't m'a'tte'r!"
- This is Muriel's last appearance in the series until the series finale, "Mr. Tipton Comes to Visit".
