    • Tori: Why do I have to play an instrument anyway?

      Cat: And it sounds kinda gross.
      Andre: Why'd you pick the french horn?
      Tori: I don't know. I like french fries, french toast.
      Cat: (gasps) One time, when I was eating french toast at a restaurant, I started laughing, and then I started choking, so the lady who ran the restaurant made me leave.

    • Jade: (to Beck) I want coffee.

  • Notes

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

    • Original International Air Dates:
      Australia: September 28th, 2010 on Nickelodeon.

    • In the scene at the end, when Tori and Jade are cleaning up the food fight scene, when Jade goes to turn the music on, she trips and falls into the wall

    • The scene where Tori accidently picks up a big piece of lettuce and tries to shake it off actually happened during one of the takes by accident, but it made her and the creator, Dan Schneider, laugh. So, he asked her to do it on purpose for the scene.

    • On the very back wall with green bricks, in the room where Robbie and the others are waiting to audition, the names written there are those of various Victorious and iCarly cast and crew. In the context of the show, those names are those of the students who have graduated.

    • In the original script, when Tori says "I dunno... I like French fries, French toast..." there was an added part where she adds "french kissing", but it was taken out because it would have been too much for Nickelodeon.

  • Allusions

    • Locker Stickers:

      On the locker that is two away from Tori's, the stickers that are posted all over it, featuring words like "blunder" and "fang", are actually Wacky Packages, which were sold as trading cards and even gave way to the Garbage Pail Kids trading card series.

      Inside Tori's locker, there is a sticker that says "Don't You Fake It", which is an allusion to the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus album of the same name, and multiple pictures of Katy Perry.

    • André: Play that funky music white girl.

      This is a reference to the Wild Cherry song "Play That Funky Music".
