"Okay. Can I have my website back?"
Carly to Nevel.

iWant My Website Back is the 15th episode of the second season of iCarly and the 40th episode overall. It marks the fifth appearance of Nevel Papperman and the second appearance of Mandy.

Plot

Spencer gets a new credit card after cancelling his old one, causing Carly, Sam, and Freddie to lose control of the iCarly.com domain. Luckily, Mandy (who first appeared in iAm Your Biggest Fan), returns to buy their website back for them, but gets tricked into giving it to Nevel, who disguises his online name as FreddieB123. Spencer disguises himself as an old woman ("Great Aunt Natalie") to trick Nevel into signing the URL transfer document back to them during an autograph signing, but is distracted by an old man (who thinks he's a woman), and Spencer gets chased out by security guards after Nevel recognizes him.

Later, Nevel demands a kiss from Carly in exchange for signing the transfer document. Carly agrees to the kiss, confronts Nevel, and he signs the document. However, Carly cleverly escapes with the signed document without having to kiss Nevel and succeeds in reclaiming their website. Nevel declares that the iCarly's will "rue this day," but gets guacamole dumped on him.

Subplot

Guest Stars

Trivia

  • Butts do have muscles. They are called gluteus maximus, gluteus minimus, and gluteus medius, or glutes for short. Carly should know this, because Miss Briggs refers to her glutes while she and Freddie are trapped in her closet in iSpy a Mean Teacher, and they both gag as a result.
  • As Carly and Freddie click on Mandy's name to view her profile, her laugh is heard right when they click on her name. Their reaction is a horrified, simultaneous scream.
  • Making soup in the toilet is later referenced on Victorious in the episode The Wood, when André said: "I didn't say people could puke on my carpet, and make soup in my toilet!".
  • This is the third episode to start with iWant, the first being iWant More Viewers and the second being iWant a World Record.
  • The brand name of the Mexican sponge that Spencer bought is "Esponja!", which is the actual Spanish translation for sponge.
  • This is the only episode where Spencer crossdresses as Great Aunt Natalie Shay who doesn't exist in the iCarly universe.
  • This episode marks the last one in Nickelodeon history to have the just Schneider's Bakery logo, without "DANWARP", or the preheat light.
  • It is implied that the old man might be gay or bisexual, supported by the fact that he is still interested in Spencer ("Natalie Shay") even when he finds out Spencer is a man.
  • Carly nearly mentions the episode title when she says, "I just want my website back!".

Allusions

  • Send-Ex is a parody of FedEx.
  • Nevel getting guacamole dumped on him resembles the Nickelodeon Green Slime gag, which originated on You Can't Do That On Television, a show that aired on Nick in the 80's.
  • David Schwimmer is mentioned by Mandy in this episode.
  • In this episode, Freddie is wearing a blue golf shirt and a pale green golf shirt that both have a crest sewn on them - this crest appears the same as one sewn on a sweater worn by Megan (Also played by Miranda Cosgrove) in the Drake & Josh episode "The Gary Grill".

Character Revelations

  • Spencer's dress size is 10. He knows it by heart, answering the question without even thinking for a second.

Goofs

  • The freight elevator that serves the Shays' apartment and the iCarly studio has exterior doors on each floor that appear to be made of studded metal. It also has in inner door that appears to be a gate of green-painted wooden slats - this inner door should be part of the elevator car and go up and down with it. However in the scenes with the pillows in the elevator the inner door is missing.
  • In the scene where Nevel is signing autographs, there is a couple behind the first man. But after he has left, the couple has gone.
  • While Nevel is signing autographs the cash box on the table is open, but after the man gives Nevel four dollars the cash box is closed, and Nevel has to open it to put the money in.
  • After Spencer is chased by security guards and returns to the apartment, Carly goes upstairs to the iCarly studio to video chat with Nevel; but she moves away from the laptop which presumably has a webcam in it and starts addressing the studio monitor which has no webcam - yet Nevel is carrying on the conversation and gesticulating to Carly as if he can see her, when he obviously cannot.

Series Continuity

  • This is the first appearance of T-Bo and the Groovy Smoothie after the store was first mentioned in iWanna Stay With Spencer.
  • It also is the fifth appearance of Nevel, and the fourth time he tries to destroy iCarly.
