"Look! It's Carly, my best friend who loves me and sees the value in me as a person!"
Sam about Carly.

The Cam Friendship is the friendship pairing of Carly Shay and Sam Puckett (C/arly and S/am). Carly and Sam have been best friends since they were eight years old, and it's a major component of the show. Many storylines focus on the development of their friendship. Their unbreakable bond is a force to be reckoned with. Many fans celebrate this friendship, while respectfully disagreeing with others that there is any romantic attraction between the two. Even though they are not the same, they are great/best friends. (See: Cam Relationship.) Carly and Sam's friendship is one of a few canon pairings on the show. It is the main friendship on the show, as they are as close as sisters, who look out for each other.

Basic Friendship Facts

"Look! It's Carly, my best friend who loves me and sees the value in me as a person!" - Sam


Carly and Sam met when they were only eight years old, after Sam tried to steal Carly's tuna sandwich during a lunch break. Carly refused to give it up when Sam was trying to take it. Carly retaliated, and this impressed Sam and she said, "You're alright". Due to her "vicious, but lovable" nature, she tells Carly that she's an "all right kid," and Carly allows her to sit with her at lunch.

Five years later, they are still friends to this day, and their friendship continues to grow stronger. Although they are very best friends, Carly thinks that Sam's a nightmare, obnoxious, irresponsible, etc.

Mustache Petting Is Always A Good Time.

Throughout the series, Carly has acted as a moral guardian for Sam, as Sam's mother appears to have poor parenting skills. Carly lends Sam her clothes, allows Sam to stay in her place and feeds Sam more than her mother does, as shown in the show. Carly loves Sam for who she is, but will put her foot down when Sam goes too far. Carly is the only person who can control Sam's aggressive behavior. As revealed in iChristmas, Sam would have wound up in a juvenile detention center (Juvie) if it weren't for Carly's moral guidance. Carly is the only character in iCarly who Sam has always acted civil towards.

Great Cam hug!


Although some may disagree, Carly also would be affected adversely as well if she never became friends with Sam. The episode iChristmas also shows that if Carly and Sam weren't friends, Carly would have a considerably more boring life (i.e.: she'd date Nevel Papperman, wouldn't be friends with Freddie, and iCarly wouldn't exist). This seems to ring true throughout the entire series of the show. In their friendship, Sam's always been the humorous, daring one, and her free-spirited nature seems to bring spontaneity and fun to Carly's otherwise normal life. In terms of this aspect, their relationship is balanced and not one-sided as some would think.
