  • A fresh start.

    A fresh start to the Sam,Freddy relationship story.
  • Really Good

    I really enjoyed this episode. For me, this is one of my favourite episodes. It had a really good plot, but I wish the episode went for longer. Jim Parsons guest staring in this episode was the icing on the cake for me. Some of Jim's lines were quite funny, they should have him on more. The kiss at the end was nice.

    "iLost My Mind" was a fun start to the new season of iCarly, which I hope is not short, but fear it probably will be. Jim Parsons' appearance on the show as Caleb was much hyped, but it definitely delivered as the Emmy winner brought some real laughs to the house.

    Mental institutions are a great place for sitcoms to have one-off episodes and this show properly utilized that setting for a good episode tonight.moreless

    what i liked- Spencer trying to get into the jeans he thought were his, only to find out they were Carly's, Gibby enthusiastically saying "Yes!" when Carly said they were going to the hospital, Carly telling Freddie Sam's password is 'icky' (that's how you do an innuendo slash 'hm, what could it be?' line/scene), the ending was nice, Spencer as Pam (would've been funnier if they hadn't spoiled it in the promos, Spencer and the book club ladies, amongst other things.

    decent. it wasn't as good as iOMG but it was still pretty decent. it sucks we have to wait till September for the next episode, but hopefully it will be worth it. B- or so as my final grade for this episode.moreless
  • Pretty Good - (and)* - Exciting

    8.5
    This episode was very exciting and I think better then iOMG because of the functionality of it.

    Carly is in her apartment andFreddie tells Carly why he didn't tell her about the kiss and that he doesn't even know where Sam is.They find out where she is at (she checked herself in a mental hospital) so they go there to talk to here. Once there, Freddie and Sam are alone and Freddie tells her that she isn't stupid for liking him so they try to get out of the hospital but can't because Sam needs a parent to sign papers for her to get out. So Spencer dresses as Sam's mother who couldn't be there because of laser hair removal. That fails and they really needed to get Sam out because they had an Icarly show coming up soon. So they have the show there. They try to see do Icarly fans think Freddie and Sam should date but Freddie kisses Sam which ends the episode.

    I especially liked the part where the Icarly fan says " SEDDIE! , SEDDIE ". The good thing about this episode is that it is very exciting to see the story between Sam and Freddie continue. Although I think they could have done more with this, this was very exciting anddefinitelyfunny. Far better then the last episode (Except for the ending).

In the other version, Carlyisthere and witnesses the kiss. He filmed that ending both ways because, at that time, they hadn't yet written the next episode, and they weren't sure if they wanted Carly to have witnessed the kiss or not.

  • NOTES (13)

    • The Duration of this episode is '23:37.'



    • It was not in the script for Jim Parsons to have cotton swabs in this scene. When they were filming it, and going to Jim for reaction shots, Dan felt Jim should be doing something more interesting than just sitting there, listening. So, Dan grabbed some cotton swabs and handed them to Jim.

    • A new Penny-T! 'Angry Towel' appears in this episode.

    • If you'll notice, Gibby enters this scene, says a couple of quick lines, then exits, and never returns. Why? Because Noah is under 16 years old, so they have a limit on how much time they get him (for work) each day. They didn't have enough time shoot this whole scene with Noah, so Dan wrote him a quick entrance and exit. If they could've had more time with him, Dan would have put him in this whole scene.

    • After Jim drops to the floor (after Jerry kicks his thigh), Jim says two things that were not in the script. First he says,"I didn't even feel that"– and then he says"Don't touch it". They added those 2 lines on stage as they filmed this scene. Steve Molaro came up with"I didn't even feel that"and then Dan came up with"Don't touch it".

    • Jim is actually wearing a special "stunt shield" on his thigh (under his pants leg), so it didn't hurt too bad when Jerry kicked himhard.

    • Scene 8 marks thesecondtime we've seen Spencer dressed as a woman on iCarly.

    • In the original script, it was someother patientat Troubled Waters that was going to be laughing at the TV that isn't on... but then someone said,"Why don't we give that bit to Jim?" And they did.

    • There were more funny lines about the book club ladies exchanging recipes and making fruit tarts, but they had to be cut, for time.

    • Freddie's last line in scene 5 –"Sure". Danadded that on stage, while they were filming this scene.

    • It was not scripted for the elderly lady to blast Spencer's eyes with pepper spray. Dan thought of that on stage, while they were filming the scene.

    • Nathan's line, "I have to click the items!"– that line was not in the script – Dan added it on stage while they were filming this scene.

    • Miranda, Nathan, and Jennette kept asking Dan Schneider what Sam's icky password was in this episode.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • "Troubled Waters" – Is a little nod to the great Simon & Garfunkel.

    • You'll hear Spencer use the phrase"in ways I can't understand". This is a little wink to one of Dan Schneider's old characters,Coach Kreeton,fromAll That(the first TV series he ever wrote and produced). Coach Kreeton would always get upset and yell,"Daagghh! Aw, you've upset me in ways I can't understand!"Now, you'll hear Spencer say it to Carly in this scene.
