    Look at Carly and Spencer's Apartment. How does Spencer make so much money that they afford all that stuff? He does not have a real job. He's an artist and they do not make a lot. Well some do, if they are really good at it, and Spencer is good at it. However, in the show, we do not see him working everyday. On top of all that, his works are not in a museum. Do their dad send over money or something? I have just been wondering about this for some time.

    I've always wondered too.

    Maybe their dad sends money every week? He is in the marines/military-whatever. I bet he gets paid a lovely check .

    I've wondered that too. Like TJ12 said, I had just assumed they got the money from their dad.

    But only because dad believes that Spencer is still in law school.

    I think your being spammy as usual, but that's a really good point.

    Yeah, that's the theory I based "Against All Odds" on. In that, when the dad (who was actually an antagonist) realized Spencer was lying to him about law school, he stopped paying Spencer. Eventually bills caught up and he was evicted. He, Carly, and his fiance had to deal with getting back on their feet.

    He makes some money from his sculptures, but Dan hasn't mentioned anything else. Things would happen that we don't see on the show.

    That's true. But still, they should show it xD. Guess its not that important in such a show like this, because its' comedy/fantasy.

    Rici - Bahahah! xD And I'm not sure what Mrs. Benson does. I just always assumed she was a nurse or something.

    Lol, her as a nurse? She would freak out the patients . But I've never actually wondered what she did for a living. Now I wish we knew :/ .
