"Yes. You were pregnant with me for 11 months!"
Freddie to his mother.

iMove Out is the 7th episode of the third season of iCarly and the 57th episode overall.

Plot

Freddie's mom showing everyone his baby pictures

After Mrs. Benson embarrasses Freddie on iCarly (by reprimanding him for not eating his asparagus and then forcing him to eat them on the live webshow) and in school (showing everyone his baby pictures after assuming they all are his friends), he grows frustrated with her babying ways. When his mother tries to clean out his ear with a vacuum while he was sleeping, Freddie finally decides to move out to an unused room in his apartment building. Although it is a decrepit utility room, and costs $100 a month to rent, Freddie is satisfied to be free of his mother. His mother commands him to return home (and eat a "prune pop" that she brings to his apartment), but Freddie stands his ground. After Mrs. Benson promises to respect Freddie and agrees to his conditions the next morning, they hug and he moves back home. His conditions are that she treats him like he is as old as he is, and that she unlocks all the TV channels (but Mrs. Benson is reluctant to unlock the nature channel, although she does do so).

Subplot

The Pet-ographers.

After a pet makeover on iCarly. the iCarly gang opens a pet photography business. Another duo of pet photographers want them to shut down and when they refuse, vandalize the studio. The police refuse to help because one of them suffered from Spencer's antics and because the Petographers don't charge cops. Sam comes up with the plan to vandalize the petographers' studio in return, but when they are interruptes, she kidnaps their cat, Harmoo, to hold for ransom while threatening to shave him if the police gets involved. After the petographers fix the studio, they want Harmoo back, but he jumps out of the window and runs along the ledges of the building. They find him outside of Freddie's apartment, and since he attacks Spencer every chance he gets, they decide to use that to bait him. It works, and the petographers quickly make their exit.

Character Revelations

  • Freddie claims Mrs. Benson was pregnant with him for eleven months.
  • Ever since Freddie was born, Mrs. Benson would de-wax his ears on every third Friday.

Goofs

  • Carly and Sam put Harmoo in the bathroom which is next to the living room on the eighth floor. Harmoo then jumps onto the ledge outside. Freddie sees Harmoo on the ledge outside his window, but Freddie's room was shown to be somewhere on the top floor of Bushwell Plaza earlier when it was first shown.
  • Unless Mrs. Benson got a new locator for Freddie's head, she wouldn't have been able to find Freddie with the chip in his head, because Spencer dropped the locator in Japan.
  • It would be impossible for Spencer not to have fallen off the building when Harmoo attacked him like that.
  • In exterior shots of Bushwell Plaza there are vertical columns running from bottom to top between adjacent windows, and it does not appear that there are any horizontal ledges at all.
  • Freddie claims that 17 seconds is Sam's personal best lock-picking time when breaking into the Petographers studio, but in iWill Date Freddie, Sam manages to unlock Freddie's apartment in less than 4 seconds.
  • When Carly is at the Petographers' studio she appears to be wearing black jeans, but after returning to the apartment she is wearing blue jeans.
  • It is claimed that Mrs Benson was pregnant with Freddie for 11 months. However, in real life, labor would be artificially-induced if she was pregnant beyond the due date.

Running Gags

  • The gears at the top of the apartment turning and scaring people when someone uses the elevator.
  • Spencer being attacked by Harmoo.

Freddie: Hey, hey, I'm sorry!
Gibby: [sarcastically] No, I'm sorry!


Freddie: It's all my mom's fault. Don't you think she's a lunatic?
Carly: Totally. You know she's outside in her car waiting for you?
Freddie: Let her wait.
Carly: There you go!
Freddie: Where I go?
Carly: Your mom pushes you around and treats you like a baby 'cause you let her.

[Spencer comes out of his room and sees the de-waxer on the table]
Spencer: [puts the tube up his nose] This is fantastic!


Spencer: I would go ice skating every night.
Carly: Except now we can't, 'cause we've been banned from the Frozen Oval.

Carly: So you had to jack slap him in front of his kids?!


Officer Carl: So what do you want us to do?

Officer Carl: [to Spencer] What up with your face?
Spencer: I told you, their possessed cat attacked me!
Officer Carl: Harmoo? He's just a pussy cat.
Spencer: No, he is not, just a...
Carly: [stops Spencer] Wait, how do you know their cat's name?
Sam: Are you friends with those guys?
Officer Carl: I know them. They took some very nice photos of my daughter's bunny. For free.
Carly: Why didn't they charge you?
Officer Carl: 'Cause I'm a cop, and the Petographers don't charge cops.
Spencer: [sarcastic tone] Oh, so that means they can just break into our apartment, [louder] TRASH THE PLACE AND YOU DON'T EVEN CARE?!
Officer Carl: Watch the attitude. I haven't forgotten about "Pee on Carl"! [gives Carly a ticket] Here.
Carly: You're giving me a ticket?
Officer Carl: Yes. [points to the car] That vehicle has no license plate.
Carly: It's a prop!
Officer Carl: So are you. Show us out please.

Carly: [Seeing Freddie's new apartment] And I'm sure it'll be really nice after you paint it ... hang some curtains ...
Sam: Move to a new place that's less disgusting ...
Carly: Sam!


Sam: Hey ... there's no bathroom in here.
Freddie: There's a sink.
[Both Carly and Sam shudder in disgust]


Sam: [making grabbing motions] Wow, you can actually feel the awkward.


Freddie: Please don't try to talk me into moving back in with you.
Mrs. Benson: Oh, I won't. Actually, I think living on your own will be a positive thing for you. Perhaps you'll even--YOU GET UP TO YOUR ROOM THIS INSTANT FREDDIE BENSON! I AM YOUR MOTHER, AND YOU'LL DO AS I SAY!!


Mrs. Benson: [shouting] Eat this prune pop!
Freddie: [in a calm tone] I don't want that prune pop.
