Backpack is the 10th episode in Season 1 and the 10th episode in the Nickelodeon TV series Zoey 101, the episode aired on April 3, 2005.


After having to pay for a $50 backpack she squirted with liquid candy at the bookstore, Nicole is stuck with a horrible, candy covered backpack. Zoey and Nicole have no money for having to pay for the backpack. So the only thing Nicole can do is burst balloons with popcorn. But the backpack is saved when Zoey decides to spruce it up with a new design she created. To her indignation, Zoey's backpack idea is stolen from a girl named Stacy who is making a lot of money from it, and Zoey decides to improve on her own idea and sell her own backpacks.

Meanwhile, Quinn tries to make a "banapple" because bananas and apples are her 2 favorite fruits. When birds start threatening the banapple tree, she creates a laser scarecrow. However, when the banapples are ripe, she discovers that they taste terrible and make a corrosive acid, demonstrating by melting Stacy's bike. Stacy ultimately has to use the painful bike as the episode ends.
