  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Carly: (to Spencer) I can't take you seriously when you're wearing duck pajama pants. (Spencer pulls down his pants)
      ...Duck boxers?

    • (Sam is brought to Principal Franklin's office)
      Sam: Principal Franklin... You're looking well. You join a gym?
      Carly: (walking in) What happened?
      Sam: Carly! Look, Principal Franklin, it is my best friend Carly who loves me and sees the value in me as a person. Right, Carls? Tell the nice man.
      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.
      Principal Franklin: Girf?
      Sam: Girl!
      Carly: Well, you wrote girf!

    • Carly: I'm Carly.
      Sam: And I'm Sam.
      Carly: And this is iCarly. The only web show that makes you laugh and prevents heart disease.
      Sam: So sit back with a pound of bacon and enjoy the show!

    • (finding out Sam owes Carly and Freddie $526)
      Freddie: Are you going to pay us back or what?
      Sam: I was, but I didn't know it was gonna be that much.
      Carly: So how much do you have?
      Sam: Um, let's see. (going through her pockets) I've got 14 bucks, a double A battery, some string, a fork, and I think that's an olive.
      Carly: The olive's moving.
      (Sam calmly takes a fire extinguisher off the wall and bangs it viciously on the table)
      Sam: I got it.

    • Sam: Hey, can I borrow thirty bucks? I gotta pay a cab driver.
      Carly: You took a cab to school?
      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 closes Freddie's laptop on his hand)
      Freddie: Ah, you squished my trek pad finger!
      Carly: That's not something a cool person says.

    • Sam: (crying) I had to clean urinals! Boys are so gross!

    • Freddie: Sam, are those address labels coming along?
      Sam: Great. Fine.
      Carly: (looking at the computer screen) You're not printing address labels, you're looking at trampolines!
      Sam: I'm sorry. I just want one so bad!
      Carly: Well, you know when you can have a trampoline?
      Sam: When?
      Carly: NEVER!

    • Sam: Can I help you?
      Guy: Yeah, I asked for hot sauce and there wasn't no hot sauce on my tray.
      Sam: Sorry. (slams a bottle of hot sauce on the counter) Here's some hot sauce!
      Guy: You should have put it on my tray in the first place!
      Sam: You know where I want to put it right now?!

    • Spencer: (about selling Fudge Ball) I could help her sell them.
      Mother: Oh, I couldn't ask you to do that.
      Spencer: Oh, come on! My little sister Carly used to be a Sunshine Girl. I used to help her sell Fudge Balls all the time.
      Mother: And you're sure you want to help Emily?
      Spencer: How tall is your husband?
      Mother: I'm single.
      Spencer: I really want to help Emily.

    • Carly: Isn't "Chili My Bowl" the place where someone found a finger in their chili?
      Sam: It was a thumb!
