"iDate a Bad Boy" is a two-part episode of iCarly that aired on May 9, 2009.


Carly and Spencer catch their new neighbor, Griffin, stealing Spencer's motorcycle. The two reprimand Griffin, but Spencer eventually lets him off the hook, despite Carly's begrudging disposition. Following this incident, Spencer sparks a friendship with Griffin and invites him over to help with a sculpture - much to Carly's dismay. After working on the sculpture for some time, Spencer goes out to buy smoothies for the group. Spencer then returns home to see Carly and Griffin sharing a kiss. Carly frantically tries to explain her newfound feelings for Griffin, but this only infuriates Spencer further. Consequently, Spencer forbids the couple to see each other and begins policing Carly's daily life. Sick of Spencer's paranoid regimen, Carly and Griffin devise a plan to see each other. Their plan is quickly thwarted by Spencer, who, despite their deceptive efforts, lets the couple be together.

Meanwhile, Sam pays Freddie to build a website for her, and has a contract written up as well. Freddie agrees, and begins building the website around Sam's request. However, as their partnership progresses, Freddie expresses that he cannot keep up with Sam's numerous demands, 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.

Carly and Griffin's relationship advances happily and without flaw, until Griffin reveals that he neurotically collects a series of stuffed animals. Carly is taken aback, and consults Sam about his compulsive collection. The pair eventually begin passing jokes about Griffin and collection. Griffin, who had come to see Carly, overhears this conversation and immediately ends their relationship. 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.
