"She kissed you, and she's not even your mom! Impressive."
Jeremy to Freddie.

iWill Date Freddie (also known as iWant to Date Freddie[1][2][3][4]) is the 9th episode of the first season of iCarly.


iCarly introduces a new feature—called the Blab Cam—where viewers can chat with Sam and Carly on the air. One of the first callers is a fellow student from Ridgeway named Valerie, who seems more interested in Freddie than Sam or Carly, so that the girls suggest the two should go on a date.

Mrs. Benson seems very excited with the fact that Freddie is having a first date and states that she would love to have them over to her apartment. However, Carly convinces Freddie's mother that the date can be at the Shay Apartment. She also has him put on some backup clothes instead of the dorky ones his mother dresses him up in. Sam sets up cameras and both girls spy on Freddie's date. Freddie and Valerie have a good first date and seemingly become inseparable for the next week. She then asks him to help her do a webshow on the same day as iCarly, causing Freddie to quit the show, which enrages Carly and Sam. Freddie tries to help them by hiring Jeremy as iCarly's new tech producer, but he messes up the show due to his constant sneezing.

After the disastrous iCarly episode, Valerie confesses to Sam that she was just trying to ruin iCarly and establish her own show as the best show on the web and even offers Sam a place as her co-host, baiting her with calling the web-show 'Val and Sam' or 'Sam and Val' if she wanted to. Sam fakes interest, but immediately tells Carly about it, and they both give the news to Freddie. At first, he doesn't believe them, but when he confronts Valerie about it, she admits it. Freddie breaks up with her. He returns in time for the iCarly webcast, but doesn't return to as tech producer because Sam doesn't treat him like he is important to the show. After a reluctant Sam tells him he is important to iCarly, he returns as iCarly's tech producer.

Without Freddie's help, Valerie and her show, The Valerie Show, fail dismally.

Guest Stars


  • On the DVD, Season 1, Volume 1, Disc 2, this episode is called "iWant to Date Freddie," hence this is probably the correct title, not "iWill Date Freddie".
    • "iWant to Date Freddie" was also the title of the episode in the UK airings of this episode.
      Robyn's Weiner-Dog-Pig.JPG
  • This episode has a reference to crew member Robin Weiner in the webcast scene where Sam says, "We'd like to thank our friend Robin for letting us borrow her weiner dog."
  • It was during the filming of this episode that Drake Bell (Miranda Cosgrove's former Drake & Josh costar) visited the set. He walked onto the kitchen set and said, "Hey, Megan." (addressing Miranda by the name of her "Drake & Josh" character), and asked, "Where's Josh? Where's Mom and Dad?" A clip of this was included in iBloop.
  • The word "skunk-bag" as used in this episode is a euphemism for scumbag (a contemptible lowlife), the origin of which has vulgar connotations.
  • Sam claims that Valerie must be in a mental institution if she likes Freddie. Later in the series when she realizes she likes Freddie, she checks herself into a mental institution.

Character Revelations

To be added


  • Jeremy ("Germy") is using a small hand-held camera with a lens that is only two or three cm wide, yet when he is wiping his spittle off it we see his whole hand and part of his arm, indicating that he is wiping spittle off a sheet of glass, not the actual camera lens.
  • When Valerie's TV monitor falls it has no power cord attached, so it couldn't actually work.
  • When the monitor fell on Valerie, she seemed unharmed. In reality, she would have been extremely hurt or even killed.
  • When Sam spits out the watermelon, you can see Nathan Kress breaking character by laughing.

Running Gags

To be added

Sam: Just take the girl out, kiss her, then step back before she pukes.

Mrs. Benson: Freddie, tell her [implying Sam] the rule about standing up straight.
Freddie: … You won't get respect if your back's not erect.
[Sam spits a mouthful of watermelon on him]

Mrs. Benson: [To Freddie] There is a living, breathing girl out there who wants to go out with you. This may never happen again! ... [quickly turns to Carly] Unless Carly changes her mind.
Carly: Yeah, Freddie and I are just buds.
Mrs. Benson: I totally understand.
Carly: Thank you.

Carly: Sam, stall her! Freddie, take off the stupid clothes!
Freddie: Right!
Sam: [opens door] Hey, Valerie, how goes it?
Valerie: I'm great! Is Freddie here? Because I've been thinking--
[Sam slams the door shut]
Carly: I said to stall her!
Sam: She is stalled, I slammed the door right in her face.

Spencer: Would you care to see a dessert menu?
Freddie: Sure.
Valerie: Sounds good.
[Spencer shows the dessert menu with only the word 'Pudding']
Freddie: I…guess we'll have the pudding…?
Spencer: I'm sorry, we're out of the pudding. [Wipes some pudding off his lip]

Freddie: Yup, we've gone out together every night this week so far. I'd say we're almost officially boyfriend and girlfriend.
Sam: So, which one are you?

Carly: Have you kissed her yet?
Freddie: Maybe. A little.
Sam: No way! Did she puke?

[Valerie gives Freddie a quick kiss on the lips, and then leaves.]
Jeremy: She kissed you, and she's not even your mom! ... [Sneezes] Impressive! [Sneezes]

Sam: [knocks on Carly's door and is dragged into the apartment] Hey, I got your text message, so-
Carly: [closes the door after dragging Sam in] Freddie quit.
Sam: Quit what? Suckin' his thumb?
Carly: He quit iCarly.
Sam: [shocked] What?
Carly: By email.
Sam: [outraged] He can't quit! What's wrong with that little punk!?
Carly: I don't know. I didn't want to talk to him without you.
Sam: Let's go slap some sense into that boy!
Carly: Thank you!
Carly and Sam: Freddie!? [they storm across the hall to Freddie's apartment and bang on his door]
Carly: Freddie, open the door!
Sam: Open up! We need to talk to you right now!
Freddie: [imitating a high-pitched voice from the other side of the door] Uh, Freddie's not here. I'm just a lady.
Sam: [sighs in exasperation, then starts picking the lock with her hairpin]
Carly: What are you doing?
Sam: Pickin' the lock.
Carly: How are you going to pick the lock with a hair- [the door is suddenly unlocked and swings open] Oh, like that.
Sam: [angrily storms into Freddie's apartment] Come here, Freddie!
Freddie: Leave me alone, Sam! Sam, what are you gonna--
[Sam pushes Freddie out of his apartment. He crawls into Carly´s apartment, while Carly and Sam advance on him. He gets up]
Freddie: That was assault!
Carly: Why are you quitting iCarly?
Sam: Yeah, why?
Freddie: Well, 'cause ... 'cause maybe I don't like the way Sam treats me!
Carly: Oh, come on!
Freddie: Yeah, she's always putting me down, and calling me mean names, and every time I get an ice cream cone, she takes it and she licks it. She just licks it all over the place, just to bug me!

Carly: That little--
Sam: Say it!
Carly: I don't like to say it. Spencer says it's not ladylike.
Sam: Say it!
Carly: That SKUNKBAG!
Sam: Feels good, doesn't it?!
Carly: Yeah, it does!
Sam: We're gonna go tell Freddie?!
Carly: Yeah, we are!
Sam: Can we get a smoothie first?!
Carly: No, we cannot!

Spencer: [on the phone with a Girl Sprout] HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY NO?!? Wait, how much for the Twin Mints?

Sam: [to Carly] Now what?
Carly: We can't do the show without someone doing the tech stuff!
[Freddie comes out of the elevator, raises his hand at Sam and Carly.]
'Carly: Hi ...
Freddie: [quietly] You were right.
Sam: Valerie admitted she tried to steal me?
Freddie: Yeah, she even tried to get me to talk you into doing her show. You guys were right about her, she's a skunk sack.
Sam: Bag.
Freddie: Bag.
Carly: [to Freddie] What'd you do?
Freddie: [depressed] Broke up with her.
Carly: I'm sorry.
Freddie: [quietly] It's cool.
[Freddie walks over to Jeremy's laptop and opens Splashface.]
Sam: Well, c'mon, let's do a butt-kickin' webshow; that'll take your mind off of it!
Carly: Totally. Look, I know we haven't rehearsed it with you, but--
Freddie: [interrupts Carly] I didn't say I'd come back to iCarly.
Sam: Yeah, but…
Carly: You said Valerie admi…
Freddie: That doesn't mean that she was wrong when she said you guys don't treat me like I'm important to the show.
Carly: I always tell you how important you are!
Freddie: Yeah, you do. [looks at Sam]
Carly: [to Sam] Tell him he's just as important to the show as we are!
Sam: Ahhh, why don't you just make me drink out of a toilet!?
Carly: [folds her arms] Tell him!
Sam: [walks over to Freddie] Freddie, you're just as important to iCarly as we are.
[Freddie smiles. Sam and Freddie hug each other. Sam gives Freddie a wedgie.]
Freddie: Uggh! She gave me a wedgie!
Sam: No charge! Now c'mon, let's do the show!
