The Prisoner Who Wanted some Soup

Carly and Sam in "The Prisoner who Just Wanted Some Soup, and the Man who Refused to Give Him Some."

Shown in the episode iOwe You, although it wasn´t officially declared a "Pathetic Play", it could've been the inspiration to make further Pathetic Plays. Written by Sam as part of a class assignment, and given a D-Minus by her teacher, it was evidently designed to be reminiscent of plays that ended up on low-budget, high-quality television shows made during the "golden age of television," such as Studio One or Playhouse 90. Instead, it consisted of Sam and Carly wearing beaten fedoras and talking in masculine grovely voices repeatedly shouting "Just gimme some soup," and "I ain't gonna give you no soup."

Shown in iWant My Website Back and officially called an "original play". Carly plays a farmgirl who talks to a cowboy (Sam) about his mustache as if it was a pet squirrel.


In iWon't Cancel The Show, the play was continued; however this time, the play was performed by Carly and her brother, Spencer, because Sam was in juvie.

In iPsycho, they do another segment of the play. In this segment, the farmgirl thinks the cowboy´s chicken (played by Nora Dershlit's chicken Maurice) is a sports car.
