  • Sam has to come up a way to get $526 to owe Carly and Freddie.

    This is a perfect episode of season 2. This episode is so funny. It was funny when Sam had to pay Carly and Freddie an estimate of $526. It was funny when Sam, Carly and Principal Franklin said the word Gilrs incorrectly by saying "Girfs". It was awesome to see Sam actually working to get the $526. It was funny that Freddie left while Sam was crying to Carly, although it bugged me to hear the laugh track laugh at Sam Crying, but hey it's iCarly. I died laughing when Sam screamed at Freddie to make him leave and then crying again to Carly. The reaction towards Sam receiving the $526 at the Chili my Bowl was hilarious. Sam spend the money to get the Trampoline. Normally, that would've been a terrible ending, but seeing the icarly gang having fun on a Trampoline was funny. Spencer's subplot was kind of good too. Spencer wanted to sell Girl Scout Cookies to impress that single mom. The other girls selling the cookies were Mean-Spirited. It was funny when Spencer was teasing those girls when he won the Bike. Overall a perfect episode of season 2. I laughed at this episode a lot. 10/10.moreless
  • I love this episode!

  • iOwe You- Poor!!!!

    Sadly this episode dissapointed me!!!! Why would the producers put on an episode about Sam getting money and just spending it!!! Thats teaching kids to just spend their money when ever they want and not save it for something they need. Tsk Tsk!!
  • almost perfect AGAIN!

    A wonderful episode of icarly. Once again an almost perfect episode of icarly. the reason why this episode wasn;t perfect was when Sam took the fire exstingusher and smashed it . that part was boring and i thought it was TOO random. This was a good idea of an episode to make Sam work. Now Sam HATES work so thats what made it funny. I thought it was creative when Sam used Icarly to get money, but i spoke too soon because Sam was sent to the princeipals office because of that. If you havn't seen this episode You have to seen it!moreless
  • good

    What I liked: Sam getting the money she owed Freddie and Carly, Spencer's sub plot of trying to help the little girl sell cookies, Sam getting a trampoline (which mysteriously vanished after this episode, CONSPIRACY!), amongst other things.

    Good episode. Sam getting a job was a good plot and the execution was well, and Spencer's plot was pretty funny, like him riding the bike around to flaunt it to those mean girls. B or so as my final grade, I think is fairmoreless

      Carly: Tell him what?
      Sam: I sent you a text.
      Carly: Oh. (reading text) Sam did nothing wrong. She didn't do the thing you're mad about. She's not that kind of girf.

      Sam: I got it.

      Sam: I had to. My mom loaned her car to some fisherman and I missed the bus.
      Carly: A cab here from your house doesn't cost $30.
      Sam: It does when you make the guy stop and buy you a breakfast burrito!

      Sam: When?
      Carly: NEVER!

      Guy: You should have put it on my tray in the first place!
      Sam: You know where I want to put it right now?!
