Season 2, Episode 14
March 7, 2009
Carly, Sam and Freddie are thrilled when they get invited backstage to a mixed martial arts arena to do an iCarly bit filmed backstage. However, Spencer (who builds a large version of a Newton's Cradle using bowling balls), and Mrs. Benson refuse to let them go making Spencer act more strict and responsible. Upset by this, they set up a risky scheme to sneak out by hiring some lookalikes to fool Spencer into thinking they are still there. They provide them with 200 responses they taped previously on the laptop which they use when Spencer comes up. Spencer finds out, however, and follows them to the MMA match, where he gets thrown into a table by iCarly´s guest star, MMA fighter Jackson Colt. After this, they go home to wrap up the webcast while Spencer slowly recovers from his brutal toss. At the very end, he says Carly is grounded for 2 weeks making him more respnsible, although he soon forgets about it when he sees Jackson Colt dancing with the Bra Who Tells Ghost Stories.
- This episode reveals that Carly can be a bit spoiled and bratty whenever she doesn't get what she wants that Spencer, her parents, and Granddad Shay doesn't like about her and grounds her. The second episode where this was shown was in iDate a Bad Boy similar to Spencer grounding her. It means that Spencer grounds Carly for the first time to show his parents that he's acting mature.
- The character of Carter Ford, the boy who had his basketball stolen out of his locker by Sam, was probably named after two former U.S. presidents, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.
- This is the one of the two times a Sam "clone" was seen. The second is Melanie seen in iTwins.
- The iCarly lookalikes are never named.
- The cartoon the "fake" iCarly gang are watching when Spencer comes up to the studio is Super Duper Sumos, a cartoon Nickelodeon aired in the past.
- Doctor Doty, the doctor who re-attaches the man's ear at the MMA fight, is actually George Doty IV, an iCarly writer. He is later referenced in the Victorious episode Freak the Freak Out.
- Carly wears the same shirt later in iTake on Dingo, but not the same vest.
- Gabriel Basso, the actor who plays "fake Freddie" is the real-life brother of Alexandria Basso who played Sabrina in iBeat the Heat, and the girl who knocks over Freddie's drink in iTwins.
- The skit "Great Moments in Kid History" is featured in this episode.
- In the scene where Jackson Colt threw the other guy at the table, it broke, but when he threw Spencer, it is the same table, and is back to normal.
- Why would the lookalikes leave the key near the entrance? Even if it was hidden, they should have kept it with them so Spencer wouldn't be able to get a hold of it.
- When Carly, Sam, Freddie and Jackson Colt bend down to pick Spencer from the floor Spencer's arm is raised, although he is knocked unconcious.
