Jimmy Fallon invites the gang to New York after Carly dedicates a webshow to him parodying his famous skits. Gibby buys pants which caused a few problems during the show. While the gang starts dancing, Gibby's pants fall down, causing indecent exposure on camera, as he is not wearing any undergarments at the time. This incident prompts the NCC to show up. People blame Jimmy for the incident by saying he deliberately wanted Gibby's pants to fall. Carly and her friends do an episode of iCarly saying it was their fault and not Jimmy's. The NCC forces them to pay $500,000 dollars or they will shut down iCarly, so Jimmy blogs asking America for their spare change to help the iCarly gang get the money. At the end of the episode, Jimmy reveals to the gang a big pile of money, totaling $576,094, which is more than enough to pay the fine.
Special appearance by: Tina Fey as herself.
Guest stars: BooG!e as T-Bo and Mary Scheer as Mrs. Benson.Notes: This is a special one-hour episode. The scene where the gang are in the diner in New York City is a spoof and a replica set of the sitcom Seinfeld. The NCC is a spoof of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), although in Season 2 Episode 11, iGive Away a Car, the parody is named LCC. This episode is the second time in the series that iCarly face charges. In other countries, like Norway, this episode is called "iShock The World" or translates into it.

Carly awaits her father's arrival in Seattle to escort her to the Father-Daughter Air Force Dance, but she gets a message saying he is unable to come. To comfort Carly, Spencer asks to take Carly to the dance, and she accepts. Shortly before the dance, Spencer becomes sick after Lewbert sneezes on him and is unable to escort Carly. Carly is very disappointed because she's been unable to attend the last four years due to her father's overseas posting, and this is the last year she is eligible to attend. Sam convinces Freddie and Gibby to take Spencer's place, but this just upsets Carly more. Surprisingly, Colonel Shay arrives and escorts Carly to the dance after all. After the dance, Colonel Shay informs everyone that he has to return to his base in Italy, and invites Carly to move with him. Despite Carly's initial reluctance, Carly receives supportive encouragement from everyone and accepts the offer. The gang heads upstairs to the studio to stream their last iCarly webcast together, with Colonel Shay present. Carly and Freddie are alone in the studio and kiss for the last time before she departs. In the airplane, Carly watches a montage of archived iCarly webcasts on her laptop. Meanwhile, Spencer and Sam work together to fix a motorcycle for Socko, but Sam gets to keep after he no longer needs it, Freddie gets a phone that is twice the size of a regular phone constantly getting teased by everyone for it and Gibby gets his head stuck in a machine when he gets a new head to make up for the one he lost in Las Vegas.
Notes: This is the series finale. It is a one-hour episode, but was originally planned as two half-hour episodes. It is the third hour-long episode to be produced as two episodes (the 99th and 100th) but broadcast as a single episode. It is the only episode in which Carly and Spencer's father appears. References to the series pilot, "iPilot", include Carly and Sam making fun of Ms. Briggs' "pointy boobs"; a flashback to Carly, Sam and Freddie brainstorming ideas for their first webcast; and an appearance by Spencer's video camera squirrel sculpture, the last one to catch fire on the show. Before Carly logs into iCarly.com on the airplane, the screen shows Dan Schneider's Twitter page and you can see his tweets. Freddie's phone "Samsun" is a parody of "Samsung".Continuity: Events in this episode are mentioned by Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) in the first episode of the Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat, also produced by Dan Schneider.
