"Quack! Quack! "
Mandy using her catchphrase during the episode.

iAm Your Biggest Fan is the 13th episode of the first season of iCarly.

Plot

After receiving a gushing fan letter, the iCarly gang invites Mandy Valdez, their self-proclaimed biggest fan, to attend a webcast with their first live audience (consisting of Mandy only).

Mandy quickly reveals that she's more than simply a fan of the group -- she's obsessed, to the point where she sneaks into Carly's apartment in the middle of the night so she can join Carly and Sam watching TV, sends them countless thank you cards gives pointless gifts and even transfers so she can attend the same junior high as the group. It reaches the point to where Mandy starts to disrupt their broadcasts, in particular while doing her duck impersonation (complete with duck mask). Spencer tells them they should tell her to leave them alone but Mandy won't listen, eventually it gets to the point where they send Mandy on a ridiculous errand, (which she actually was able to do).

The joke is on Backflesh, however, when Mandy sneaks into Carly's apartment and hears a Backflesh CD playing and starts dancing (with no talent). Immediately, she falls in love with the band and they become her new obsession, as Carly, Sam, Freddie, and Spencer discover to their amusement when they see Mandy disrupt the band's Seattle Beat performance with her duck impression. They watch amused with their drinks and laughing happily at Mandy's idiotic ways. We leave them happily clinking their drinks.

Subplot

Meanwhile Spencer tries out to be the new drummer for Backflesh, despite having no drumming ability using drums he found in the junkyard. The band decides to keep him on because he lets them use his apartment for rehearsals, and they continuously forget his name. Spencer later calls in a favor to get Backflesh booked on the Seattle Beat TV show. Before the show, however, they fire Spencer and steal his drum kit.

Guest Stars

Trivia

  • During Twister Vision, Carly and Sam's voices pan from left to right and back again in the stereo field.
  • This episode is the debut of the (fictional) snack Fladoodles.
  • Backflesh appeared briefly in "Chasing Zoey", the series finale of Zoey 101 (one of iCarly's sister shows).
  • This episode is similar to the Drake & Josh episode #1 Fan. Both plots feature a fan who becomes too obsessed with the main characters.
  • The person who yells "Hey, somebody call the cops!" when Mandy was with the band on Seattle Beat was voiced by Dan Schneider.
  • This is the first time the Messin' with Lewbert sketch was mentioned, but not shown.

This crazy look in her eyes frightens us A LOT!!!.jpg

Allusions

  • Mandy exclaims that the four of them will be three musketeers and Freddie says "but there's four of us," as if this somehow is a beat down. There are actually four musketeers in Dumas' book: Porthos, Athos, Aramas, and D'Artagnan. D'Artagnan is a musketeer wannabe, much like Mandy is an iCarly wannabe so the allegory is quite fitting.
  • Mandy bears similarity to Wendy from Drake & Josh.

Character Revelations

To be added

Goofs

  • In the last scene, Freddie hands Carly and Sam drinks and all have curly straws in them. In the very next cut, Sam's straw disappears.
  • When Carly and Sam are watching Girly Cow and Mandy surprises them, Carly says "How did you get in?" and Sam says "The door was locked", Mandy said "Not all your windows were" - but as the apartment is on the 8th floor it would be insanely dangerous if not almost impossible for her to get in through a window.
  • Carly said to Spencer, "Take an umbrella" but in the background it's not even raining, never mind it being cloudy out, however Seattle is known for its weather; and rains frequently.

Running Gags

  • Suzay is mispronounced as Suzie by some people and she keeps correcting them
  • Spencer not being addressed properly

Series Continuity

  • Mandy mentions an episode where Carly and Sam dress a dog as a pig and another where they bled spaghetti with meatballs in a blender. She is referring to iWill Date Freddie and iWant More Viewers respectively.
  • Sam says she hates people, which is later also mentioned in iChristmas.
  • Mandy makes her first appearance in this episode, and later returns in iWant My Website Back.

Quotes

[after Spencer's new "invention" bursts into flames]
Carly: Electrical wiring just isn't your thing.
Spencer: No, it is not.


Carly: [picks up show idea card] Carly and Sam roll Freddie in bread crumbs then bake him at 350?
[Freddie looks at Sam in shock]
Sam: Just 'til he's golden brown!


[Spencer is finished setting up a drum set and begins drumming, which causes it to fall apart shortly afterwards]
Spencer: ... I rocked too hard.


Sam: Hey, can I spend the night here?
Carly: You don't wanna go home?
Sam: Nah... When my mom buys a new bikini, she usually wears it around for a couple of days to "break it in." If you're my friend, you won't make me look at that.


Spencer: OK, all fixed. Which means I'm now officially a drummer.
[Spencer starts playing the drums and one of the cymbals mysteriously bursts into flames]
Spencer: How did that even happen?!
[Carly gets the fire extinguisher and extinguishes the cymbal]


Mandy: Quack! Quack!
