** Dan Schneider had to be aware that Fred had both a Fandom and a Hatedom, so he probably used "world famous" Schneider-verse to put that episode in a world where Fred is unanimously adored by everyone. The man got One Direction on his show, and even the latter has its Hatedom.

** The writers and Jennette apparently have been "toning down" her behaviour in the final season knowing she has to carry the show (well, kind of, since Nick added ArianaGrande to the cast because they know Sam can't carry a show after what happened during the ShippingWars in ''iCarly''). They could have fooled me.

* That is like questioning how "[[{{Terminator}} John Connor sends Kyle Reese to the past to protect his mother without knowing Kyle would be John's own father]]" works. There's already the CelebrityParadox of Carly AND Craig/Eric not recognizing Carly's resemblance to Megan, plus the Parker-Nichols Hotel (and many more D&J elements) also exist within the iCary-verse. I don't find it a big deal if the writers would like to inject some reference to the D&J AND having it exist in iCarly.

** This is what I thought, and I'm not even a shipper. The "[[BelligerentSexualTension mean and violent towards your love interest]]" thing was something I had become accustomed to from one of Nick's [[{{HeyArnold}} earlier shows]], so I just assumed it was going to come to light at one point or another. I do agree that the plot could have been done better, though.

*** ''iKiss'' shortly followed by ''iMeet Fred'' is too ironic and inexcusable to mention in terms of the first sentence, so no surprises if Dan pulls another such episode again in the aftermath of iOMG. HeyArnold works for a cartoon. iCarly is live action. But it would be quite interesting if they ''actually'' get Sam and Freddie together and then Sam gets nothing short like Melanie in terms of girliness around her BF. It will kill the established VitriolicBestBuds comedy since the pilot and would be just as "boring" and "perfect" (if those 2 words even work together) as some claim against the friendship of the other major (yet minority) pairing. Time will tell.

* Aside from being named after Penny, the shirts are labeled as such because of its "trademark": a single penny sewn onto the trim of its left sleeve. Perhaps this episode is also an attempt how far Dan's shows can be: the Ping-Pong Scam of {{Victorious}} also tackled something that is "illegal", much like Sam's child-labor sweatshop. Seeing that Nickelodeon also aired these themed episodes ''on the same weekend'', it proves that Nick's radar has totally malfunctioned. And it also shows that Sam is on her way to claim her place as Megan's righthand <cue ''Dies Irae''>.

*** The show has a very wide demographic. It works for 8-year-olds to 18-year-olds (especially in season 3, usually considered the most diverse season in terms of demographic), and also has a big PeripheryDemographic because of the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar innuendo and stuff they get under the radar]] (it's at WesternAnimation levels, which says a lot). Plus, how long it'll last is probably going to depend on the main cast. Physically, the kids are done with puberty, and their in-universe ages are still only about 16. It's the same thing that happened with DrakeAndJosh. The only reason that ended is because the main cast wanted to move on.

* It is "illegal" in DrakeAndJosh canon. Given that this show also has a shared universe with DrakeAndJosh, why did the trio still use the said condiment in a contest? Granted that they also won the contest (that ingredient also ensures victory in DrakeAndJosh) and the pepper was not mentioned afterward...

** Even for the sake of cross-over referencing, the DrakeAndJosh episode "Peruvian Puff Pepper" did state that the pepper is illegal in the ''entirety'' of North America. California and Washington both belong to America, don't they?
** ''iCarly'' is set after DrakeAndJosh. The law could have changed.
** DrakeAndJosh might not be even in the same canon. We've seen Carly and Spencer watch a few episodes once.
** Craig and Eric did show up in iStartAFanWar, so DrakeAndJosh has to be in the same canon. Dunno why Carly and Spencer were able to watch episodes of DrakeAndJosh though...

Is it just me or is Carly watching Drake and Josh in iPrank? The girl she was listening to on the TV sounded alot like a younger Miranda and Carly comments on the girl's pranking ability possibly making this a shout out to the fans. And if Carly is watching Drake and Josh, does this mean that Miranda Cosgrove is a real person in the iCarly Universe?
* Yeah. Carly is watching Megan and comments on how that 'little girl can prank so well', and then later Spencer watches Crazy Steve from another DrakeAndJosh episode.

** Series/DrakeAndJosh is clearly a tv show in that universe, as Drake Bell the actor and not Drake the 'Drake' in Series/DrakeAndJosh showed up in Zoey 101. Carly and Spencer have both watched episodes of DrakeAndJosh during Series/{{iCarly}}.

*** That the actors of Craig and Eric are both named Craig and Eric (just like Drake and Josh were played by a Drake and Josh), and essentially play themselves on Series/DrakeAndJosh. Meaning they acted on the in-universe tv show of DrakeAndJosh, and they are the actual real actors showing up at the Series/{{iCarly}} webicon event.
*** That there is some kind of LiteraryAgentHypothesis going on, and that in the Schneiderverse, Crazy Steve, Megan, Craig and Eric (and probably Lola and anyone else who was played by the same person but different characters on Zoey 101 and iCarly) were played by different people for the non-real life 'in-universe' version of DrakeAndJosh.

*** Possible HandWave: In this universe it is just coincidence, they never actually said it was DrakeAndJosh, let alone the characters' names, it was just a shout out for those who have seen the show. This can explain explain why Craig, Eric, and Gavin can exist in iCarly in character because there is no DrakeAndJosh, just a really similar show. Of course I don't know the WordOfGod, so this is speculation.

The day Freddie finally stands up for himself would be the day [[DrakeAndJosh Megan Parker]] gets punished. But let's face facts. Sam managed to out-bitch [[Manga/LoveHina Naru Narusegawa]].

**** And? SpongebobSquarepants was aimed at children. ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' was aimed at 13 year old girls. Didn't stop them getting fans outside their supposed demographic (particularly the latter), and it doesn't stop ''Series/ICarly'' either.
