Sam with her butter Sock

Sam using her buttersock in iStill Psycho


The Butter Sock is Sam's weapon of choice. As the name implies, it is a sock filled with a piece of butter. It is used by swinging it to gain momentum and then hitting someone with it.


It first appeared in iTake on Dingo when Sam used it to threaten the Dingo writers to stop copying Random Dancing, Messin' with Lewbert and other segments of iCarly and hit one of them with it twice.

In iParty with Victorious, Sam offered it to Carly to hit Tori with and later wanted to hit Steven Carson with it for cheating on Carly (and Tori), but eventually, it wasn't used.

It appeared for a third time in iStill Psycho, where she used it to behead one of the mannequins to make it look like Gibby was sleeping so he could escape. It is also revealed in this episode that Sam never changes the butter in the butter sock.

It was mentioned in iGo One Direction, when Sam offered to use the butter sock on Harry for faking continued illness.

In iOpen a Restaurant, Sam used it to beat up Billy Boots and in iBattle Chip, Sam used it to beat up a bully at the Groovy Smoothie. She finally changes the butter in the sock afterwards.

It saw its biggest use in iRescue Carly, where Sam beats up a large group of delinquents (about 30 people) with it by turning off the lights and swinging away while wearing night vision goggles. Sam says she uses hard butter in this episode.

It was last referenced in iGoodbye, as when Carly and Sam are signing off, Sam says to the audience "keep your sock full of butter".

It would later appear and be mentioned in Sam & Cat.


  • According to Dan Schneider, he originally intended it to be a sock full of quarters, but since Nickelodeon considered it too dangerous if someone would try it in real life, he changed it to butter. [1]
  • In one of Sam's blog posts on icarly.com, she mentions the butter sock when she is listing things you can buy for 3 dollars. This is what she says: "One tube sock + One stick of butter = Instant butter sock. Cheap and effective!"
