"I'm gonna get Vin Diesel in tip-top shape."
Carly

iCan Fix it Myself[2] is the 11th episode of Season 1 of iCarly (2021), and the 11th episode overall.

Synopsis

"Carly is in over her head when she tries to repair her car herself rather than ask for help. Spencer tries to help Maeve reveal her secret to Harper."

Official Paramount+ Synopsis

Plot

Carly as Taco Tina

Carly, Freddie, Harper and Spencer are playing a card game. Harper is distracted and staring at her phone, nervous about the outcome of her application for a styling job with emerging pop star Dutch.

Later, while Carly is filming for iCarly dressed as Taco Tina, her car named Vin Diesel, breaks down and needs to be towed away. Wes, the mechanic, advises Carly to buy a new car as the repairs will cost more than her car's worth. Unsatisfied with Wes' recommendation, Carly decides to take things into her own hands by taking an auto repair class.

Carly, Freddie and Millicent in class

Carly, Freddie and Millicent attend an auto repair class at Tucci's Tune-Ups. There, they meet Regina, an enthusiastic student who has attended auto repair classes many times. To Carly's surprise, the teacher of the auto repair class is Wes. Carly accuses Wes of giving people false hope and swindling, but Wes is insistent that he only aims to empower people. He invites Carly to try checking the oil of a car, but Carly refuses Wes' help and ends up covering herself in oil.

Carly attempts to fix her own car by following a tutorial online, but ends up damaging her car even more. She calls Wes begging him to help save her car, however his efforts are futile. Carly is distressed and explains that the car means a lot to her because she has a lot of memories with Sam in the car, and driving the car helps her feel connected to Sam.

New Seat of Sitting for the studio

Spencer preserves Carly's car by repainting it and keeping it in the iCarly Studio, so that Carly can make more memories with her car.

Later, Wes asks Carly out on a date.

Subplot

At dinner, Maeve reveals to Spencer that she faked her own kidnapping. She pretended to be kidnapped to get away from paparazzi, bill collectors and the media after her family lost all their money.

Maeve and Spencer work together to figure out how to reveal this information to Harper. To put Harper in the right mood, Maeve buys a limited edition Normani Off Balance sneakers that Harper was been coveting and Spencer buys a $2,000 bottle of champagne. They also put up flowers around the apartment. However, after hearing how excited Harper is about getting the styling job with Dutch, Maeve changes her mind and doesn't tell Harper the truth about her disappearance.

Later, Maeve and Spencer discuss their new plan, which is to never tell Harper the truth. However, unbeknownst to them, Dutch is in the apartment and overhears their conversation.

During Harper and Dutch's strategy meeting, Spencer interrupts them in an attempt to prevent Dutch from revealing the truth to Harper. However, a misunderstanding results in Maeve revealing the truth to Harper herself.

Harper is angry and vents her frustration to Carly, revealing the extreme lengths she went to find Maeve, such as taking out ads in the newspaper, making #SaveMaeve go viral, and recording a charity single about missing cousins.

At the end, Harper forgives Maeve, and they sing Harper's charity single "Save Maeve" together.
