"I didn't really want to go Briarwood anyway. "
Sam and Freddie become upset when Carly is offered a full scholarship to an elite private school, Briarwood Academy. They both worry that if Carly left, it would mean the end of their friendship and their webshow, iCarly.
Meanwhile, Spencer creates a miniature golf course, which eventually plays into Sam and Freddie's plan to get Carly to stay at Ridgeway Middle School. Sam asks for Freddie's help to prevent Carly from switching to Briarwood with the incentive that there is a better chance of Carly falling in love with him if she stays. They plan to sabotage Carly's interview with the headmistress, Mrs. Peeloff, so she would be seen in a bad light and no longer be considered for the scholarship. The two decide to make up a golf night (using Spencer's mini golf course) and invite students over to make noise and create havoc. In addition, they reschedule Carly's interview so it takes place at her home where all of the kids will be.
After her meeting goes awry and Carly confronts the two about their actions, they are apologetic and the headmistress admires the loyalty her friends show. Despite that, Carly is sure she has no chance to be accepted at Briarwood any more and says she didn't really want to go there anyway. In a blog on iCarly.com, she posted the rejection letter she received.
- When Freddie first imitated Spencer, Sam said not to sound like Darth Vader (a character from "Star Wars"), even though in the iCarly universe, Galaxy Wars is the equal to Star Wars. It could be that Star Wars also exists in the iCarly universe.
- When Freddie is talking to Mrs. Peeloff and pretending to be Spencer, his voice gets more and more like his own, ending up with Freddie talking normally.
- Sam and Freddie barely fight in this episode.
- One of the awards in iCarly Awards said iGibby, which was mentioned here.
- In the Victorious episode The Blonde Squad, Evan Smith (Cat's date) was said to go to Briarwood Academy.
- Shayne Topp, who plays Phillip Brownley, also plays Vance Anderson in the Sam & Cat episode #StuckInABox.
- Carly yawning while using a laptop became a popular reaction image.
- The life-size cutout on Spencer's golf hole is probably John C. McGinley known for his role of Dr. Perry Cox on Scrubs.
To be added
- Before Carly got sprayed, her shirt was already wet.
- When Carly asks a boy to press the water fountain button it squirts directly into her mouth - in reality the water stream would describe a path across the floor and up Carly's front before reaching her mouth.
- When Carly was watching iGibby, it says that it is live. It can't be live, because Sam, Gibby, and Freddie weren't in the iCarly studio, (Carly was), and in the studio, but not on the website, there were mini golf holes. However, it was just a dream sequence.
- When Carly and Mrs. Peeloff enter the iCarly studio and sit down to begin the interview there are three colored golf balls lying on the "toilet bowl hole" - but when the boy runs back in to hit a golf ball into the hole there is only one - the other two have disappeared.
- At the end of the episode when Spencer comes out of the shower he clearly has shaving cream all over his head, not shampoo.
To be added
- Carly wears the same pink robe in the episode iCarly Awards.
