Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove) is accused of digitally altering a photo of Ms. Francine Briggs' (Mindy Sterling) head to be placed on the body of a rhinoceros, even though her best friend, Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy), is the true culprit.

Freddie Benson (Nathan Kress), who has a crush on Carly but is enemies with Sam, brings his tech equipment to videotape the auditions. They eventually finish the auditions and write a list of people they want to be in the talent show. Ms. Briggs says these are foolish, then rejects them all.
