This week’s episode of “iCarly” is taking a stab at the world of computer sales at an Apple-esque store. If that doesn’t sound like a fascinating plotline, the cast assures fans that there will be zany antics, some friendly rivalry and even some romance. We bet you never thought all that intrigue could squeeze its way in there!
“Today, we are on the set of ‘iCarly’ and we are shooting some scenes for an episode called ‘I Work for Pear,’ ” Jennette McCurdy, who plays Sam, told MTV News about the episode. “[My character] Sam ends up getting hired for the job, because she’s so good with the customers and at selling things. Mad trouble ensues because Freddie’s mad at Sam. Sam’s not meant to work.
“The Sam and Freddie relationship has been explored on many fronts,” McCurdy continued about her link to Nathan Kress’ character. “There was the first few seasons where they were bickering constantly, and then there was some touching on a relationship, which, let me tell you, was a real treat for us … it wasn’t awkward at all,” she joked about their brother/sister relationship.
It seems that Kress was hoping to escape to the Pear store to indulge in his love for computers. “I can’t really think of any better place for Freddie to go since he’s such a computer nerd than to be at the mecca of computer-nerd salesmen,” he said. “There’s some really big complicated scenes, because all of us are there, but we each have our own story lines.”
For the show’s leading lady, Miranda Cosgrove, she notes that Carly Shaw found something other than computers to keep her intrigued at Pear. “In this episode of ‘iCarly,’ Freddie gets a job at the Pear store, and shortly after, he’s absolutely in shock, because he finds out that Sam gets a job at the Pear store as well,” she said. “My part on the episode is, I’m crushing on a geeky guy who’s really sweet, and then there’s a twist at the end.”
While she couldn’t say what the twist is, Noah Munck, who plays Gibby, had this guarantee: “It is definitely a hilarious episode.” The show airs Saturday night at 8 p.m.
