Gwen reclaims Cat's can of bibble and sprinkles some bibble crumbs onto Sam's bed. Later, she paints Sam's motorcycle pink, while Ruby paints Cat's hand likewise. Sam and Cat argue with one another over these incidents, thinking they did it to each other for revenge. They part ways the next day to calm down. At Punchy's Gym, Goomer rationally points out to Sam that it could have simply been Gwen and Ruby's revenge. Nona relays the same logic to Cat at Bots. The girls gladly reunite and plot revenge against Gwen and Ruby. In order to trick the young Brits, they pretend to engage in a colossal fight in their apartment, and Sam uses the toilet plunger to make it look as if Cat has died. Never having wanted their revenge plot to escalate to death, Gwen and Ruby feel wretched about what they have done and quickly turn against one another, throwing a fit outside.

It provokes Lucas into calling his brother lumpatious, which Jepson says is not a real word. Sam and Cat make a bet with Jepson that it is a word, but then find no proof of the word's existence in any dictionary, including the most authoritative Oxnard English Dictionary. Determined to bring the word into existence, the girls go to Oxnard and meet the "Word Keepers", who say the two must provide evidence of the word's use, and would accept a famous person's saying the word.

Dice and Goomer show up at the girls' apartment and present a magic box that can make people disappear. Cat volunteers for the magic trick, only to end up trapped in the box. As attempts to free Cat from the box prove futile, and the gang is just hours away from heading to Mystic Mountain, they bring the box to a local magic shop where a famous magician named Vance Anderson works. Vance has the tools to unlock the box, but he also behaves obnoxiously by flirting with Sam and insulting Dice. Regardless, Cat is still trapped after Vance confirms the box is defective. The gang then decides to bring the box, with Cat inside, for the drive to the theme park, except the box is thrust out of the car when Goomer hits a bump in the road, leaving Cat stuck on the side of the road.

When Nora Dershlit (Danielle Morrow reprising her role from the iCarly episodes "iPsycho" and "iStill Psycho") breaks out of prison, she seeks revenge on the iCarly gang. With Carly in Italy, she turns her attention on Sam and obtains her address in Los Angeles from Gibby Gibson (Noah Munck reprising his role from iCarly). Nora spies on Sam, Cat, and Dice at Bots, and kidnaps Dice shortly afterwards. Sam and Cat search frantically for Dice, and learn from Gibby that Nora is responsible for his disappearance. Sam and Cat visit Sam's old nemesis Nevel Papperman (Reed Alexander reprising his role from iCarly) in a mental institute and Nevel deduces that Nora is hiding Dice in an abandoned house. Cat tries to get information out of Nora, but gets trapped in a well where Dice happens to be. Sam arrives just in time to save Cat and Dice, but Nora challenges her to a fight, having worked out in prison for two years. However, on her first kick, Sam grabs her leg and easily pushes Nora down the well. Sam rescues Cat and Dice, and Nora is taken to a maximum security prison. At the end, Nevel escapes from his mental hospital and is having dinner with Gibby.

31 "#DroneBabyDrone" Russ Reinsel Dan Schneider & Jake Farrow April 12, 2014 (2014-04-12) 131 2.2[49]
After Cat watches the news for her homework, she and Sam become fascinated by a story about an online vendor that delivers its packages via flying drones. The girls order several useless items, happily receiving them even as the buggy drone smashes their kitchen window. A customer service representative from the retailer shows up, offering them discounted delivery to make up for the problems. Sam and Cat then start ordering as much as possible, to the detriment of their babysitting service. Nona and Dice step in to help out, only to watch a drone mistake one of their infants for a return product and carry it away in its car seat. The gang panics, knowing the baby's mother will soon arrive, and they go to the retailer's factory to find the child. The customer service representative from before approaches them, again with the cheerful attitude that this is a routine mishap, and brings them to a room full of items mistakenly taken by the drones: pets, babies, mailboxes, wigs, etc. They cannot initially identify the correct baby, but Sam pushes Nona to the floor, successfully reproducing an incident which caused the baby to laugh back at their house. One of the drones ends up removing Nona's wig before leaving.

After an exhausting babysitting session with two hot-tempered children named Phillip and Kelly Baum, Sam and Cat are offered by their family butler to escort the two to the Bahamas in first class. However, a miscommunication involving the Baum's personal timer devices, and a panicked airport security system shuts down the airport. Dice & Goomer, who brought the timers, are interrogated by two agents, who quickly become exasperated with Goomer's whining and Dice's frustration. To make matters worse, the girls' tickets are unable to get them out of the waiting room, where a distraught Coco Wexler (Jessica Chaffin reprising her role from Zoey 101) is moping over the fact that Carl divorced her and proposed to her mother. After a grueling interrogation, Goomer requests chocolate milk, but upon receiving it, splashes the lady in the face and runs away with Dice in tow. Once again, the airport is shut down, but now with the kids and other people being the only passengers unable to board as Goomer tosses the bag with the timer devices to Sam and Cat.

Guest stars: Chaffin as Coco Wexler; Josh Server as Agent Partridge[50]
33 "#KnockOut" Russ Reinsel[52] Dan Schneider & Jake Farrow June 7, 2014 (2014-06-07) 134 2.4[53]
Goomer claims he is getting picked on by a fellow MMA fighter at Punchy's gym, but the supposed "bully" is actually a female fighter named Rita Rooney, the reigning MMA champion who is really being nice to him. While trying to help Goomer impress Rita at Punchy's, Sam knocks out Rita in a sparring match, becomes famous, and enters the world of MMA fighting. Sam is slated to engage in a real fight with Rita three weeks later. An aggressive trainer puts Sam through rigorous training, but Sam, known for being lazy and hating work, gets fed up and cancels the fight. Sam's decision prompts Rita to take a break from her career, and she joins Sam and Cat at their apartment, along with others, to watch a movie.
34 "#WeStealARockStar" Steve Hoefer Dan Schneider & Christopher J. Nowak July 12, 2014 (2014-07-12) 135 2.4[54]
For Goomer's new job, he is assigned to be a bodyguard for Del DeVille (who was previously seen in "#DollSitting"). When Goomer accidentally tells Sam, Cat, and Dice where Del DeVille always gets lunch they plan to wait for him by the Taco Truck (where he gets lunch). While Goomer gets Del's glasses, Cat ties her big balloon to a little girl's toy scooter, it floats away. Sam sees this and borrows a Spear Fisherman's spear gun and shoots the truck down, which knocks out Del DeVille. They then take him to their house; when he awakes he decides to call the police so Sam knocks him out a second time. The three tie him to Sam's bed until he promises not to say anything about the incident. After a few days, while Cat is fixing Andre's (her friend from Victorious) guitar she tests it out by playing an eight second snippet, which Del DeVille loves so much he promises not to say anything about what has happened in return for Cat giving him her guitar snippet. Three months later, Del DeVille's new song is famous for Cat's eight second snippet. Another three months later, Del DeVille is being sued $26 million for that eight second snippet, because apparently it was not Cat's original guitar snippet, and it sounded like a song from the 1979 hit by Monkey Dew. Then, they all agree that Del would have been way better if they had never met him.

Cat accompanies Dice to a job modeling hair for a cover boy magazine photo shoot in Arizona. Sam asks Nona to stay at her apartment while Cat is away and Nona proves to be a dream roommate, by making lavish dinners, doing Sam's laundry, etc. At the magazine shoot, when another boy named Jet is poised to win the coveted cover photo, Cat becomes convinced he is wearing a wig and she tries to blow it off his head with a large fan. Instead, she makes Jet look even better and he is crowned the magazine's new cover boy. Cat tries to rip his wig off, but he isn't wearing a wig and Cat gets arrested. Jet has to go to a scalp hospital and Dice gets the cover instead. Dice asks Sam to send Nona down to Arizona to bail Cat out of the police station before she is there for two weeks. Instead, Sam chooses to have Nona stay around for two more weeks while Cat sits in jail during that time.
