    No real resolution to the Sam ending, but the rest of the episode was okay. I do like the references to how Gibby doesn't take his shirt off as much anymore.
  • Whee!!!!!!

    Love it! Carly story is great,and the Sam,Gibby,Spencer,& Freddy's is aswell.......Never a dull moment.
  • Season 5 has definitely been a disappointing season but this episode was actually GOOD

    Carly gets her toe stuck in a bathtub right before she is supposed to leave for a date; Sam and the rest of the gang get trapped in Canada when Sam's caught trying to smuggle Canadian Fat Cakes over the border. This was a good episode of "iCarly" but Season 5 has definitely been such a disappointing season. First of all, this season has gotten NO PERFECT EPISODES and the plots this season have been boring and disappointing. I do like this episode and it is very funny in some parts which is why I gave it a 7 but is still disappoints me. Okay, I really don't like that this is the second time this season that Carly isn't involved with the situation that Sam, Freddie, Gibby, and Spencer get into. Instead, Carly gets a lame "toe stuck in the bathtub" storyline and I was not please. Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) is basically the reason why I even watch this show since I really liker her acting and she is a beautiful girl. As for the humor, I got a really good laugh at some of the parts in this episode such as Sam not having her passport and more, That guy asking Sam "Who is the first president of the United States?" and then Sam responds "Abraham Jefferson" (something close to that) along with Freddie and Spencer putting their heads down and then Gibby says "That was right.... right?" and then Freddie and Spencer have their heads down again then Gibby puts his head down as well (that part was probably the funniest part in this episode), Mrs. Benson telling Carly "Oh, you bathe in your sweatshirt.... I thought I was the only one", Gibby taking a picture with that kid who took off his shirt, Sam going inside that red suitcase and then it getting switched, and the very ending of the episode. So yeah, it's mainly the second half of the episode that gave me the good laughs. The only part that did make me laugh in the first half of the episode was when Sam is eating the fat cake and then she says "It's more than good... it's tastes like a fat angel" (that just cracked me up). So yeah, not a bad episode at all but my score is low due the "fat cake" storyline being pointless in some ways and boring but my score lowered even more because of the "Carly getting her toe stuck in the bathtub" storyline. Also, I'm tired of seeing Carly dating a guy after another guy. I mean, it's good to see Lance again since the last time we saw him was in the Season 4 episode "iStart a Fan War" but still. Enough with the Carly dating guys storyline. Overall, this episode was funny in some parts (mostly in the second half) and it was a good episode of "iCarly" but it just doesn't live up to the fact of how disappointing and boring this season became. 7/10moreless
  • Sam Gets Her Comeuppence At Last.

    It's great to see that after all the trouble she caused everyone throughout the series, Old Man Karma has finally caught up with Samantha Punkett. First, she gets arrested for trying to smuggle fat cakes out of Canada. Next, she is denied entry back into the United States because she didn't have a valid. passport. Finally, she tries to sneak back into the country in a carrying bag only to be shipped to Malyasia by mistake. This has to be one of the best iCarly episodes ever because it shows that it just doesn't pay to break the law. If I was Freddie and Gibby, I would be gloating over her problems instead of helping her, considering all the abuse they got from her over the years. The subplot about Carly getting her toe stuck in the bathtub faucett was funny too. Only in sitcoms can a human being be that stupid. I give this episode a perfect ten.moreless
