Elsewhere on the podcast episode, Rhodes said that Dylan refused to make a “fat joke” about her on the series after being instructed to, instead purposely skipping over the scripted line. Rhodes was pregnant at the time.

“Finally, we get in front of the studio audience, and he skips it, and the executive producer screams, ‘Cut! Dylan, say the line!’ And he goes, ‘I would not disrespect any woman that way, let alone this woman. You write something funny, and I’ll say it.’”

From 2005 to 2008, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody ran for three seasons, followed by the teen sitcom The Suite Life on Deck from 2008 to 2011.
