Sam and Freddie are forced to share the school's biggest and best locker after winning a contest to see how many Fat Cakes were in a large jar (the correct number was 2,718). After Sam fixes it up in grand fashion (which gets Freddie into trouble), Freddie finds he can't share a locker with her and offers her $200 for her half of their locker. Sam takes the offer and says she would've done it for free because she wanted to move back to her locker near Carly's. A few moments later, Sam's mom comes to pick Sam up, but inadvertently destroys locker 239, when her car crashes into the wall which the locker was standing against. Sam jumps in the car with Freddie's money, leaving him face-to-face with Mr. Howard, who had been busting him throughout the episode.
SubplotMeanwhile, Carly tries to get some art lessons from Spencer. Spencer tries to teach her about sculpting, but Carly wanted to learn how to draw a bunny after Sam and Freddie act mean and laugh at her simplistic drawing of one on iCarly. Spencer gets frustrated with her and Carly gets lessons from an art class. Spencer barges in, telling the teacher, Ms. Fielder, that she is not teaching "art" right. Disaster ensues. At the end of Spencer and Carly's subplot, Carly's art teacher and Spencer kiss, causing Carly to declare,"Okay, I don't understand art at all."
- The car that crashed into Locker #239 is a 1980 Toyota Corolla station wagon. The fact that a compact Japanese car of that period can do that much damage to a school building that was built in the early-20th Century doesn't say much for the construction of the school itself.
- By an amusing oversight, the Ridgeway Student Handbook forbids students from wearing tube tops or turtlenecks, but not from attending school shirtless.
- After Carly enlists Spencer to teach her about art, she isn't seen at school in the rest of the episode.
- When Sam's mom drives her car into locker 239, we can see the back of her head, but she isn't actually seen until Jane Lynch's guest appearance in iSam's Mom.
- Sam installs a Guitar Hero-type game in Locker 239; it is unknown what happened to the game (or any of the other electronics and implements) after Sam's mother destroyed the locker.
- At the end of the episode, Freddie wears the same outfit as most of iPsycho.
- Although Carly cannot draw a good picture of a bunny, in real life, Miranda Cosgrove is a talented artist.
- Sam's Mom driving after having laser eye surgery could be a reference from the episode of Drake & Josh "Helen's Surgery" when Helen drove to the Premiere right after having laser eye surgery.
- The first bunny Carly drew before the terrible one she showed on iCarly was never shown, but it was described by Sam and Freddie, then by Spencer.
- Sam's mom makes her first appearance in the series but only the back of her head is shown.
- One of the art students is played by Yvette Nicole Brown, who Schneider fans will recognize as Helen Dubois (the movie theater manager at The Premiere) from Drake & Josh, while others will recognize her as Shirley Bennett on Community.
- Ms. Fielder apologizes for painting Spencer's mouth blue, but she actually painted his nose blue.

Mr. Howard: Handbook…?
Gibby: Page 74.
Mr. Howard: I know where it is!…A-ha. "No tube tops, no jolly pants, no turtlenecks."

Gibby: Please be Gibby. Please be Gibby. Please be Gibby.
Principal Franklin: I feel compelled to tell you the worst guess, which was 5. [holds up a piece of paper with Gibby's name and the number five on it]
Gibby: I won?! I won! [starts taking off his shirt]
Principal Franklin: No, Gibby, you didn't win. In fact, your guess was so far off, we're calling your parents and having you tested.
[after Principal Franklin announces Freddie as the winner with 2,718 fat cakes]
Freddie: [to Sam] HA! In your face, you blonde-headed demon! Yeah!
Principal Franklin: Uh, wait. Hold on a second.
Principal Franklin: It seems we have another person who guessed the number correctly.
Freddie: Oh no. [Sam grips Freddie's shoulders.]
Principal Franklin: And the other winner, who will share Locker 239 with Freddie is... Sam Puckett!

Spencer: I'm sorry I painted your mouth red.
Miss Fielder: I'm sorry I painted your mouth blue.
Spencer: Wanna make purple?
Miss Fielder: Please.
Freddie: Hey, I can't get our locker open.
Sam: I know. I changed the combination.
Sam: [Grins] I thought it might irritate you.
Sam: Dude, my mom just had laser eye surgery this afternoon and she's coming to pick me up, so I gotta get outside!
Freddie: This won't take long. I am prepared to offer y- Wait, your mom had laser eye surgery today and she's driving a car?!
Sam: I didn't say she makes good decisions.
Freddie: And you're getting in the car with her?!
Sam: I didn't say I make good decisions.
