Zoey gets on her computer and joins the chat
Quinn: What's up.
Zoey: Hey guys.
Michael: Isn't this just awful.
Zoey: Yes it is.
Logan: Who knows how long we have to stay quarantined for.
Chase: This reminds me of the time where Quinn spilled her germs and we all had to be quarantined.
Quinn: Oh I forgot about that.
Coco gets on the chat
Zoey: Hey Coco.
Coco: Hey guys. This doesn't feel the same but it's the only way we can communicate.
Lola: When do you think we can go back to PCA?
Coco: I don't think we are coming back for the rest of the year.
Stacey gets on
Stacey: Hey guys.
Michael: Hey Stacey.
Zoey: How many houses have you made out of cotton swabs?
Stacey: I'm all out of cotton swabs and I can't go out to the store because of the quarantine.
Logan: Who even caused the virus anyways?
Coco: That's what I want to know.
Chase: Hey where's Dustin?
Dustin: I'm doing my homework.
Lola: Come talk to us.

Dustin: Aw I miss you guys too. Even you Stacey.
Stacey: That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.
Zoey: This feels like we're all together again.
Logan: Things better go back to normal soon.
Quinn: Did everyone grab all their stuff before it shut down?
Coco: I think so. If not, Dean won't let us back in until September.
James hops on
James: Hey guys.
Zoey: James what took you so long?
James: It took me 15 minutes to log on.
Michael: Did you have time to shave before you got on?
Zoey: You look kind of hot with that facial hair.
Zoey: I said kind of. Chill out baby.
Michael: I was really looking forward to prom this year.
Logan: Me too. I had my tux all ready.
Lola: Who ever caused this virus can suck my...
Dustin: Whoa calm down.
Stacey: Hey maybe Dean will be nice enough to invite us to prom the following year.
Coco: I doubt it. You know how Dean is.
Dean gets on
Zoey: Dean what a surprise.
Dean: I know what you said. I would be glad to invite all of you guys to the prom after you graduate.
Quinn: For real?
Zoey: Would it be cool if I bring Dustin along next year.
Dean: I don't care.
Dustin: Sweet my first prom.
Michael: Aren't you in the 9th grade?
Dustin: I'm in the 8th grade.
Zoey: We're 3 years apart.
Logan: Well next year, he'll be in high school.
Coco is eating her canned ravioli
Dean: Coco how did you get ravioli when there's none at the store?

Coco: I have a problem.
Zoey: Lola thanks for setting us this zoom call.
Lola: You're welcome.
Michael: I hope things can go back to normal pretty soon.
Coco: It probably won't happen until next year.
Zoey: I miss you guys.
Everyone but Zoey and Dustin: We all miss you too.
They all start signing off as the story ends
Note: This story is in response to the on going pandemic
Note #2: The title is an obvious reference to the show's name
Note #3: Since most of the story takes place in one location which is on zoom call, this can be considered a bottle episode
Note #4: Chase mentions the events of the Zoey 101 episode Quarantine
Note #5: Nicole and Dana do not appear in this story since they left after Season 1 (Dana) and Season 2 (Nicole)
Note #6: This is kind of taking place during Season 5 even though the show didn't get a 5th season as the characters (except Dustin) state they are in the 11th grade
