Carly and Spencer catch their new neighbor, Griffin, stealing Spencer's motorcycle. Spencer lets Griffin off the hook, but Carly remains upset. Spencer sparks a friendship with their young neighbor and invites him over to help with a sculpture - much to Carly's dismay. To lighten the mood, Spencer goes out to buy smoothies. Spencer returns home to see Carly and Griffin sharing a kiss. Carly frantically tries to explain her newly found feelings for Griffin, but this only infuriates Spencer further. In retaliation, Spencer orders Griffin to leave and does not allow the couple contact with each other. In addition, he begins policing Carly's daily life. After several days of preventive measures, Carly and Griffin devise a plan to make Spencer believe they despise each other. Despite their efforts, Spencer sees thwarts this plan, but allows the young couple be together anyways.

Meanwhile, Sam pays Freddie $50 to make a website for her, and has a lawyer write them a contract as well. Freddie agrees and begins designing the website however Sam decides. As her demands progress, Freddie expresses that he cannot keep up with what she wants and tears up the contract. Sam then reveals that she has sold the website for $1,000, and because of their voided contract, Freddie is not entitled to any of the profit.

Later when Carly is invited over to Griffin's apartment, she finds out that Griffin neurotically collects a series of small stuffed animals. She consults Sam about his compulsive collection. The pair begin passing jokes about Griffin and his stuffed animals. Griffin, who had come to see Carly, overhears this conversation and proceeds to break up with Carly. Some time goes by until the ex-couple see each other again. Carly apologizes, and the couple share one last kiss.


The episode received a Nielsen rating of 6.5 million viewers during its airing on Nickelodeon[1] and was the number 1 rated live-action special for the week with kids 6-11 and 9-14 demographics.
