Maddie's high school prom is coming up, and Zack finds out by throwing it at the Tipton. When he overhears her saying that she likes a guy who has an age difference from her by three years, he thought it was him, not Jeff (the guy she liked). Meanwhile, a circus comes to the Tipton, prompting Cody to act like a mime. When Zack gets his heart broken by Maddie, she gets her heart broken by Jeff, who has a college girlfriend. Maddie then agrees to dance with Zack.

Note: In the end of this episode, Maddie makes a deal with Zack. She tells him that she will dance with him at his prom, if he dances with her at her prom. Guest star: Monique Coleman
