Ho Yay: Victorious
Tori: "And now we're in a closet."

Girls

  • Les Yay: With a cast made up of mostly girls, and this being a Dan Schneider show, what would you expect?
  • Jade, Tori and Cat all share a mammoth amount of Les Yay. From Season 2 onwards you might as well call Jade/Tori the Official Couple of Victorious.
  • From the episode "The Wood":
    Tori: ...Where have you been?!
    Jade: In your room. You've got a lot of...things in there. *makes a flirtatious biting motion in Tori's direction*
    • Not to mention they seem happy to stage a "girl fight" for The Wood producers
  • The short film for "A Film by Dale Squires" implies the two female characters are lesbians.
  • Jade's screen name, ScissorLuv, is the first major hint to Jade's obsession with scissors. Self-harm or lesbian symbolism? Or two birds with one stone?
    • Jade also appears to have a nautical star tattoo on her right arm. Knowing what that symbolizes in the LGBT community, that's either an odd coincidence or blatant symbolism.
  • Tori repeatedly tries to get Jade to hug her.
    • Jade does hug her once… then pulls her onto the floor.
      • She likes it on the floor. She said so later in that episode.
  • Jade is happy to want to 'take off' Tori's dress in "Tori Gets Stuck".
  • Helen Back Again has Cat, Tori and Jade being a family.
    • Even better, the lesson Sikowitz is trying to teach them is about Subtext.
  • Possibly in "Jade Gets Crushed" when she dresses up like Jade for Andre. Which raises the question: was Tori jealous that Andre was crushing on Jade instead of her or just a good friend trying to help Andre out of his dilemma... or was she sympathetic towards him harboring an impossible crush on Jade? The fact that she has easy access to a Jade costume and actually sang his Getting-Over-Her song with him, it's ambiguous, to say the least.
  • Tori getting to frisk Jade in "A Christmas Tori." With more discussion about scissors. Jade even tells Tori, "Don't be shy," with a very flirty look on her face.
    • Jade definitely looked like she was enjoying that...
    • Then she tells Tori to beg for her present...
    • Not to mention earlier, with her favorite film being The Scissoring (*COUGH*) and swinging her scissors and starting at Tori excitedly when saying the protagonist of the film started her 'scissoring' rampage with "The Pretty Girl". It's barely subtext at this point.
  • Just moments prior to the above frisking, Tori opens the door to find Jade waiting on the other side.
    Tori: What are you here for?
    Jade: You.
  • The performance from Tori, Jade, and Cat at the end of A Christmas Tori is unfiltered OT 3-fuel. Notable examples are the three girls putting their hands on the other's hips in a line, and Cat blowing Tori a kiss which she cutely "grabs" in the air before moving to flirtatiously poke at Jade's nose (earning a suggestive bite from Jade.)
  • Tori says Jade looks hot in the "Freak the Freak Out" Slap photo gallery.
  • When you read the online tie-in website (the school's social networking site), you get the distinct impression that Cat has a crush on Jade. Several exchanges of comments imply that Cat is exempt from Jade's hatred of most people, so the feelings may be mutual.
  • Tori and Jade, since it seems they also get along in future episodes. But in terms of Beck, they can go Foe Yay.
  • Jade and Tori definitely seem to be growing a Like an Old Married Couple vibe as the show goes on, their bickering and banter becoming so seamless you think they've known each other a lot longer, and even with all the hostility they still seem to be there for each other at the end. Nearly played straight in "Car, Rain and Fire" where, with Cat, there conversation in the car perfectly mirrors a frustrated couple on the road trying to please their irate child.
  • In "The Birthweek Song", when Tori preforms the song at Trina's birthday party, there are several female dancers dancing in front of Trina, wearing short dresses, making them seem kind of like exotic dancers.
  • In "Jade Dumps Beck", Jade mentions to Tori all the reasons why she is confused that Beck wouldn't want her back, one of them being that she's "hot". Tori agrees.
  • Tori feeling Jade's forehead, cheeks and collarbone, and being stopped with a "Having Fun There?" before getting to the chest, in "Survival of the Hottest"
    • It becomes notable that the supposed rivals Tori and Jade get into each other's personal space A LOT during the show (even the vocally non-Touchy-Feely Jade)... without any complaints.
  • Tori's performance in The Great Ping-Pong Scam contains some of this.
    • Add to that the fact that it's Jade's dress and Tori demanded she give it to her.
    • And add to that Tori says the dress feels warm, insinuating that Jade is hot. Sum that up and mileage still may vary, but it is noteworthy as it is on the radar page.
    • Not to mention in Tori Gets Stuck, Jade returns the Les Yay with wanting to keep Tori's dress warm until she gets back from the hospital.
  • Freak the Freak Out brims with this trope. Jade and Cat perform a duet with a suggestive song. When they employ Tori for a comeback performance, both girls join in with her on the stage. Then, there's Trina wrestling with Haley and Tara as the episode ends.
  • Wok Star too, but more subtly. It's easy to see Jade's play and it's let me be who I am message to convince her disapproving father to let her pursue her life as an artist as a parallel for someone trying to gain acceptance or at least peace from their family's antagonism towards their sexuality. Not to mention Tori seems to be taking over the role as Jade's supportive beau as Beck self-sidelines for most of the episode. And then there was Jade and Tori's climatic hug.
  • A caption written to a photo posted on TheSlap by Tori:
    "Jade looks hot in this pic, but don't tell her I said so. She doesn't like when I compliment her cuz it takes all the fun out of insulting me."
    • It seems like almost every attractive female character, whether in the main cast or guest starring or just a highlighted background extra, has been called some form of "Hot" by Tori, and Jade's been called it frequently throughout the show.
  • Jade gets noticeably annoyed or shrill around Tori's boyfriends, despite it concievably removing Tori's place as a romantic rival towards Beck. She even warns her about the rumors surronding Ryder Daniels, where an indignant Tori finds out they happen to be true. Whether she's just mad at Tori finding any form of potential happiness or just doesn't want anybody else to have Tori, is anybody's guess.
  • In Prom Wrecker to get back at Jade, Tori licks the top of her punch can, and Jade still drinks it with a satisfied look on her face.
  • This. Posted by Dan himself, described as a "weird little Victorious pic", to blow your minds.
  • In iParty With Victorious Tori jumps on Jade's back in the awesome mash-up.
    • Some of the interaction between Tori and Carly can come across as flirty. Tori asks her's (and Carly's) boyfriend during an iCarly broadcast "that Carly is really pretty, don't you think?".
  • In "Ice Cream With Ke$ha", Trina practically drags Ke$ha up to her room after her performance. Ke$ha rushes down a couple of minutes later, telling Trina she's weird. What might Trina have done in her room with Ke$ha that would make Ke$ha call her weird ...?
    • Also Ke$ha seems to hit on Tori when she asks if Tori's cheekbones are real. Keep in mind, Ke$ha is openly bisexual
  • Jade giving Tori the once-over near the end of "The Breakfast Bunch"
  • In "Andre's Horrible Girl", Jade posts a Slap status that says she's on a date...while she's actually hanging out with Cat. Just an attempt to make Beck jealous, or does she really consider it a date?
    • And earlier in the same episode, Jade practically begs to hang out with Cat, and when Cat finally invites her to help dog-sit, Jade says "You owe me, baby-girl".
  • By the time "Tori and Jade's Play Date" comes around (not sure how long it's been there) Tori is wearing a thinner, subtler version of Jade's trademark blue highlights.
    • Actually, Tori's wearing feather earrings.
  • "Tori and Jade's Play Date" pretty much broke the les yay meter. TWICE in the episode Tori practically rubbed her face against Jade's breasts, while playing Jade's husband.
    • Jade yelling at Tori's butt during a deleted scene.
    • They went on a date and called each other pretty. It's practically canon.
      Jade: ...I guess...some people might say...that...from certain angles...you're...pretty.
      • Even Jade saying that she likes when Tori's sad could count, since we don't know what she likes about seeing Tori sad.
    • And while they were on that date, they were hit on by two guys they weren't in to, and ended up singing them a song called "Take a Hint", which basically seems like Sorry, I'm Gay in song form.
    • Watch how Jade looks at Tori's specific "suitor".
    • The two obnoxious guys courting Jade and Tori could be seen as an example of men who intentionally hit on lesbians in bars, noteworthy as some on first impressions may perceive Jade and Tori as a legitimate couple.
    • Jade appears to slap Tori's rear-end during the performance of their song. Not to mention later she's licking her lips while walking towards Tori.
    • After "Tori and Jade's Play Date" while the credits were rolling, there was a shot of Liz Gillies about to kiss Victoria's face, while the latter was still dressed in drag.
    • At the end of the play, right before they hugged, look at Tori and Jade's faces and tell me they aren't thinking about kissing each other.
    • The whole episode could be called "Les Yay: The Episode".
  • A video on theslap.com has Jade and Cat in bed together in their pajamas and under the covers. The camera is turned off at one point, after which Cat has somehow convinced Jade that a bunny could survive being stepped on by an elephant.
    • There's a second video in that series. Jade slept over at Cat's again, and is very handsy when Cat wakes her up; Cat doesn't seem to mind at all. It is also said that Cat's brother is wearing Jade's bra, which makes one wonder why Jade isn't wearing it...
  • Jade's Friendly Tickle Torture to Tori in "April Fool's Blank".
  • Jade announced plans on The Slap to go a 'creepy abandoned mall' on the weekend and Tori was the only one who expressed interest in joining her. Which would mean she and Jade would be all alone in a relatively secluded area for probably an hour at minimum. That either shows a great amount of trust on Tori's part or something else ...
    • They do seem to mention each other constantly on their slap updates, be it in a positive or (mostly from Jade) a negative light. Safe to say both of them are on each other mind's quite a lot...
  • Tori outright refuses Beck's attempt to kiss her in "Tori Goes Platinum", she says she doesn't want to ruin her friendship with Jade but one could wonder if Tori likes Jade more than Beck.
    • Jade didn't want to take an opportunity to sing in front of millions of people from a friend or whatever she and Tori are.
    • Also from that episode, Tori calls Jade pretty again. Jade seems pleased to hear it.
    • Both Tori and Jade seem confused as to what their relationship is.
    • Another possible bit from when Tori and Jade are talking at the end, she is very careful and nervous when approaching her, fair to say people can be nervous around other people they like. And what was the "the" in "It's a little tight around the-"?
    • Jade wearing Tori's coat when she makes her way back out to the theater's seats.
  • Possibly between Tori and Ponnie in "Crazy Ponnie". Ponnie has a Tori doll, offers to share a bathroom stall with Tori for lunch, touches Tori's bellybutton for a decent amount of time at one point and is generally obsessed with Tori. Tori certainly tried to be at least friends with Ponnie before Ponnie went all crazy on her and was similarly obsessed with Ponnie's existance and proving she (Tori) was sane.
  • This gem from Tori's slap update during Wanko's Warehouse:
    "Andre is Driving us all to Wanko's! Cat is sitting by me. She smells GOOD :)"
  • Cat and Jade get a lot of time together in Opposite Date. Apparently they regularly hang out together. Plus the sub/dom vibe between them is thick enough to cut with a knife.
  • In Three Girls and a Moose, Cat and Jade are supposed to be in direct competition over Moose. However, they seem pretty willing to work together against Tori, and at one point they both go see him at Karaoke Dokie, even though Jade could just as easily leave Cat at the Vega house.
    • The three girls being in competition but Cat and Jade teaming up to keep Tori from Moose could easily be taken as any of the three pairs, depending on how you read their motivations.
  • When Tori points at herself during Jade's performance in Tori Fixes Beck and Jade, it seems like she excitedly for a moment thinks Jade could be singing the song (a love song) to her, before realizing her mistake and pointing to Beck with a faded smile. She is still seen clapping and smiling and singing-along after Beck kisses Jade on-stage, so while your mileage may vary this could be an example of I Want My Beloved to Be Happy and/or Did Not Get the Girl.
    • The UST and jealousy between them seems to be off the rails during Tori's performance in the following episode "One Thousand Berry Balls". They both appear to tip their hat towards each other during Tori's final singing of the line "Here's 2 Us" coupled with a few earlier (possible) indirects from Tori to Jade. Not to mention where they refuse to refer to each other by name upon meeting atop the stage and get visibly annoyed when the later does the same, behaving more like jealous ex-girlfriends than their usually frosty Vitrolic Best Buds routine.
  • Jade and Tori spend the final episode Victori-Yes together. Jade lies about having plans to bake pizza with Tori to get out of her date with Beck, but even though he'd most likely have no way of knowing if she just stayed home, she actually sticks to her word and spends most of her evening at Tori's house while Tori actually attempts to make homemade pizza for them.
  • As evidenced here, Tori frequently wore a certain necklace up until Tori and Jade's Playdate, when Jade begins to wear it.
  • In Cell Block Tori sits on Cat for an extended period of time and spanks her, then later Jade joins Tori in sitting on Cat
  • In "Brain Squeezers" An angry Jade grabs Tori's shirt at the chest-level... and appears to peek down it for a quick second.
  • Watch where Tori's eyes seem to frequently wander to whenever she's talking to Jade face-to-face, and where Jade's eyes often go when she's standing behind Tori

Guys

  • The constant running joke about the gang confusing Robbie's Gender
  • Cat's Uncle and Uncle. Word Of God confirmed them as a gay couple.
  • Robbie's obsession with how good Beck looks.
  • While watching Beck fix his car, Robbie comments on how well Beck's jeans fit. Complete with hand motions. Beck really doesn't seem to mind, either.
  • Beck saying to Robbie, "Talk to Daddy", during "A Film by Dale Squires".
    • In "Sleepover with Sikowitz", Robbie's role for Beck involved invading others' personal space. Think about it.
  • Or the picture caption where Robbie wants a copy of the dress Beck wore in "Beck falls for Tori."
  • At the end of "Stuck in an RV" rapper Fat Biscuit's crew member says "we had some times in there." Fat Biscuit replies "Don't talk about it". It be a reference to multiple things from drugs to other things.
  • The ballet class until the girl comes in, then it goes in the opposite direction.
  • Robbie about Andre's skin in "iParty with Victorious"
  • From "Jade Gets Crushed"
    Robbie: *to Andre* Nice fingering!
  • From "Andre's Horrible Girl"
    Beck:*about him and Robbie*" WE have a thing.....At a place." Robbie took him seriously and was rather excited, and apparently put on his fancy shoes "for nothing" after finding out Beck was lying to get them out of something. Not to mention they later arrive together with Robbie's fly down...
  • In "The Breakfast Bunch", when Beck is straightening Robbie's hair, Robbie reaches back to try and hug him.
  • In "Car, Rain, and Fire"
    Andre (to Robbie): Those flowers had better be for Beck!
    • Reck does seem to be one of the more popular shippings...
  • This gem from "April Fool's Blank":
    Robbie (to Tori): I think we should kiss!
    Andre: Alright, come here.
    Robbie: Not you!
  • When Sikowitz asks Sinjin and Burf to spy on Tori and the gang, Sinjin says: "It's you and me baby" and clicks his tongue at Burf suggestively.
  • Beck hosts a cooking video on The Slap where after every food he prepares a Beck-crazed suitor runs up. After the 3rd thing he makes, Robbie comes in to compliment his cooking.
  • One Sikowitz's acting exercises somehow manages this even though the people involved are a guy and a girl: Beck is playing a fast food customer and Jade is playing the male restaurant worker who blatantly hits on Beck.
  • Sinjin and Burf are strongly implied to be in a relationship, and Burf seems to have a crush on Robbie.
  • In the episode "The Slap Fight", after Tori asks why Robbie's in the Janitor's closet, Sinjin replies with "Hey, I don't ask people why they're in closets", in a very pointed way. Just an odd line delivery, or a possible Lampshading moment for Robbie (or all three characters)?
  • In the final episode Victori-Yes, Beck and Sinjin go to a drag race together, an activity that Beck planned as a date with Jade. Though he was reluctant to spend his evening with Sinjin, he finds himself really enjoying the company. Beck's actor Avan Jogia tweeted after the episode that "Binjin" was endgame.
    • Pretty much all of Sinjin's dialogue in that episode sounded like a double entendre.
      Sinjin: Drag race?
      Beck: Yeah...
      Sinjin: Well that just turned my light green.
      • "I'll fist to that."
  • A post from Sinjin:
    Sinjin: Just got back from my man-date with Beck!!! We had a great time. I hope we can do it again soon!
    Beck: Yeah, any time you want…. as long as you promise to never call it a "Man-Date".
