"Grounded on the 23rd Floor" is the 5th episode of the first season of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Because of Carey losing too much money, the boys decide to make a plan on taking a picture of a wedding kiss (costing $20,000) taking place while the twins are "grounded".
The episode starts when Carey told her children that she didn't have enough money to buy all the things they want, because they, "don't have any money". When Zack and Cody heard about the famous wedding in the Tipton, without paparazzis, and anyone with a photo of the kiss will be paid $20,000. Meanwhile, Maddie was called to Carey, to babysit her children, and she has to prevent them from escaping.
