Carly and Spencer are about to leave their apartment on April Fool's Day because they are evicted by Mr. Bushwell after Spencer forgot to pay their rent after they moved in, and Carly accidentally stabbed him. Sam, Freddie, and Gibby arrive and Carly says that they all had good times in this apartment and remembers one time when they were all sitting on the couch watching on TV an episode where the characters were doing flashbacks from past episodes (fake footage of past episodes). By the end of the episode, Mr. Bushwell comes with Lewbert to tell them to leave the building. Then, Sam asks them to remember the time where they came there and changed their minds about Carly and Spencer leaving, which turns out to be a replay of the scene with Lewbert and Bushwell entering the door. Then, Bushwell lets Carly stay and Spencer (dressed up as Doc Brown from the Back to the Future films) appears and says he knows the future regarding a "future episode of iCarly" about their kids (Freddie and Carly's or Freddie and Sam's). Then, T-Bo appears inside a tiny flying bubble and transports them all in it.

After returning from vacation, Carly falls ill with "Jungle Worms", but feels better after two days, although she is still contagious. Later, Freddie tells Sam, Carly and Gibby that he has received an e-mail from the manager of boyband One Direction (whom Gibby appears to be a massive fan of), saying that they are in the Seattle area and would like to perform a song on iCarly. When they arrive, One Direction perform "What Makes You Beautiful" in the iCarly studio. (Afterwards, Sam takes a liking to Zayn Malik while Gibby tells Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson that he gives good foot massages). After Harry Styles drinks from Carly's water bottle, he gets Jungle Worms from Carly and then she takes care of Harry and he is still in bed after a week, much longer than Carly was sick for, making Sam believe that Harry is not actually sick any more and just wants the attention. Liam Payne announces that the boys will have to cancel their shows in San Francisco if Harry is not better soon, so Liam, Zayn, Niall and Louis discuss with Carly, Sam and Freddie what to do to try to get Harry out of bed. Freddie says that Harry might feel better if he thought that he was being kicked out of One Direction and being replaced by Gibby, and when he sees Gibby performing with Liam, Niall, Louis and Zayn, Harry is shocked by how bad Gibby is at singing and dancing and says that he is feeling better, meaning that he was faking. The episode ends with One Direction performing "What Makes You Beautiful" on iCarly. After the song, Sam grabs Zayn by the neck and drags him into the elevator.

After Freddie is sent downstairs, he is caught by Gibby and Spencer. Still silenced Freddie is unable to tell his friends that it is him in the costume not Nevel. Subsequently he is suspended and lowered twenty times in Spencer's new game, Jerk Basket, everyone thinking that it is Nevel being punished. After Carly and Sam feel they have their revenge, they realize Nevel was right behind them, happily watching Freddie get jerked. Nevel unlocks Freddie's robot head and they find an angry Freddie. Spencer tries to apologize to him, giving him a free stuffed unicorn from the Jerk Basket, only for Freddie to throw it back at him. Nevel finally feels he has had his revenge for the"iCarlys" not rising his popularity. Carly pretends she feels sorry and lets Nevel stay at the party, but she makes Sam "dangle" him above Spencer's Jerk Basket.
