Michael Barrett is the roommate and best friend of Chase Matthews, James Garrett and Logan Reese. Michael is a natural athlete, yet he also plays the flute. He and Logan keep urging Chase to open up with how Chase feels about Zoey. Michael, who was once addicted to potato chips, gets along with practically everyone at PCA. He is a very loyal and supportive friend who loves to make people laugh (he once became obsessed with making Quinn laugh when he found out that she didn't think he was funny). He had his own web show with Chase. Michael is a good singer, when he isn't in front of girls he likes. He is sometimes the test subject of Quinn's science projects. Michael also likes to play with his Clackers, a toy which everybody else hates. On several occasions, when he does not wish for a certain course of action to be taken, he babbles that, "You can't --- a ---!" Someone then usually does what he said could not be done, causing him to respond by saying, "He/She just --- a ---!" He also started a new slang word, "Drippin'," which he wasn't credited for. He appears in every episode of the show. He has a girlfriend named Lisa, who is friends with Zoey. His father gave him a stick shift car, so that he could drive Lisa to the prom, the car with which Mark hit Stacey, causing her to lose her lisp.
