  • Classic episode of iCarly.

    This is another well done episode of icarly. It's a classic episode. It was pretty funny for the carly gang to come up with a bet to increase more viewers by doing various things, while the loser has to touch the doorman Lewbert's nasty Wart. It was funny that when Carly and Sam made a poster that said "PLEASE GO WATCH it got soaked in the rain. Freddie and Spencer made an electric sign that said the same thing. It was funny when the cars were crashing. it was also funny that Spencer's sign says "Pee on Carl" when he was trying to turn the sign off. That part was really hilarious. The ending was cool too since they both lost, they didn't have to touch Lewbert's Wart. Overall another perfect episode of icarlymoreless

    I love this episode! OK, so i am a huge fan of icarly. i watch it whenever i can. my mom wont let me watch this show. the funny part was when the sign said pee on carl. 7/10
  • Even better than the first episode!

    This was my favorite episode from season one and still is. It has a good storyline,good humor,and the ending is worth watching alone. All around a great episode.
  • iWant More Viewers- Terrible

    These season 1 episodes are all the same:

    1. Carly: The girl who has no funny jokes.

    2. Sam: Better in the future seasons but not that good in season 1.

    3. Freddie: That dork who thinks he's so cool. (Only in season 1)

    4. Spencer: The only funny one.

    This episode was terrible because it had that same annoying unfunny humor season 1 is having. Sorry.
  • Even better than iPilot.

    This episode was perfect in so many way i can't even tell you. I really loved this episode. Now i think this is the best episode of season 1. Now i would say that the funniest part of the whole episode when the sign said Pee on Carl. I LOLed so hard!!!! I really don't have that much to say about this episode but overall 10/10.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (10)

    • This episode marks the introduction of Lewbert, the doorman of the Bushwell building where Carly, Spencer, and Freddie live. He's mean, and has a big wart on his left cheek.

      This also introduces "Messin' With Lewbert", a segment that Carly and Sam created for iCarly. In it, they pull a series of pranks on Lewbert.

    • This is the first time we see Spencer's "light-up" sock.

    • Running Gag: Spencer using the word "literally" on the interstate, usually incorrectly.

    • The Band playing on Seattle Beat is Saucy Monky with their song "Disco Ball."

    • Spencer graduated from Ridgeway (Carly's current school) eight years ago. Therefore, Miss Briggs has been teaching at Ridgeway for at least eight years.

    • In the scene where Spencer's sign lights up the interstate, it supposedly causes drivers to crash. However, cars can be seen driving along smoothly behind him after the cars crashed.

    • It is discovered that Ms. Briggs' first name is Francine.

    • When Sam and Carly came into the apartment after getting soaked in the rain, one back shot of Sam had her hair was completely swept over her right shoulder, but in the next shot, some of her hair draped down her back.

    • When Spencer repeatedly and quickly said no, Freddie commented that he said no seven times when Spencer really said no five times.

    • When Carly and Sam are in front of the Seattle Beat holding the banner, the host says, "You can catch them at the showbox next weekend. (Looks at Carly and Sam) That sign is messed up," but when they play back the clip on iCarly, she goes on to say, "So don't miss-" before she looks at Carly and Sam.
