Episode Guide
iLost My Mind
iCan't Take It
iDate Sam & Freddie is the second episode of Season 5 of iCarly. It is also the second episode of the four-episode storyline stemming off of iOMG


Sam and Freddie start dating. They have Carly settle a disagreement between them. She soon becomes annoyed when Sam and Freddie rely on her to play peacemaker and Carly is also frustrated when Sam and Freddie fail to show up until just thirty seconds before the next iCarly webcast.

Meanwhile, Spencer builds a lawn in the Shay's loft, causing Carly to say to Spencer "You see? This is why I don't like to leave the house!", even though Carly admits that it is nice looking at the fake stars Spencer mounted on the ceiling.
