Who didn't ship Zoey Brooks and Chase Matthews? Sure, it took Zoey a little longer to realize just how much she liked the lovable klutz, but everyone knew these two were meant for each other from the start.

THE FIRST KISS
Chase surprises Zoey by returning to PCA right before prom, and in a scene that's reminiscent of the time the two first met, they finally
