Welcome to the iOpen a Restaurant review. Shall we get on with it?
»Scene 1 – iCarly webcast«
Drilling meat. Two words that have never been used together… Even MS Word has trouble recognizing it.
“Science Fact of The Day?” Is it possible that iCarly has connections to the people behind the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, Aperture Science, also known as Aperture Labs?
Never mix clam juice and soy sauce. It causes you to explode…
“Can’t argue with Science.”
Spencer drunk both liquids and now he’s ok… okay, he exploded, leaving only his shoes…
Follow @CoolEinstein! You’ll learn something new every time. He’s like Bunsen Jude “The Science Dude”.
Grandpa Shay is worried about Spencer’s wellbeing, because he exploded.
The Shays have been robbed! Someone stole the TV, and the computer…
And Spencer is wearing Carly’s bathrobe.
»Scene 2 – Ridgeway High«
Carly’s showing pics the cops sent her to Freddie.
I think I know that guy…
Carly’s right, he doesn’t care.
Carly’s worried about Gibby, she says it’s not like him to miss 2 classes in a row.
Now, here’s the line that created a fan war last Saturday, “Is it too late for you to love me?”
I think this is just an outburst from Freddie. But more on that later.
Sam arrives to tell Carly and Freddie that Gibman (yeah, Gibman) is in the school basement.
Carly’s relief is evident in her voice when she says “Is he okay?” He’s okay, by Gibby standards.
Go, go with Sam.
»Some time later«
The gang arrives at the basement. It’s full of spider webs.
Gibby welcomes the gang. The way he said it reminds me of movies with brain-washing religious cults.
He has wanted to open a restaurant… for as long as he can remember. And what better location for a restaurant than a high school basement?
It could actually work, Carly…
“Dreamspitter?” That’s a new one… But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, since there are parents that name their kids “Bartzina” and Hayley Dreamsmasher Smith. Look them up.
Opening a restaurant on the roof does have its advantages… Fresh air, amazing view…
Freddie goes in to support Carly, but he asks if there would be lasagna. Personally, I don’t like lasagna. The first time I had some it was really messed up.
And then Sam asks if there would be tater tots. I don’t know if I ever had that. I don’t know what that is.
A waterpark underground, Carly? Really?
Freddie is going to follow Carly up. And Sam starts to get suspicious…
“You got a new little crush on her?” Yeah, Freddie, she did ask you that. And if I may quote the Dark Prince from Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (I’m a nerd, sue me.) “I eagerly await your response.”
See? Look at her face…
Gibby comes to the rescue, but Sam intervenes: “Too close.”
»Scene 3 – Bushwell Plaza«
Okay, now I’m starting to get a little curious. Freddie’s going back to his old ‘crushing on Carly’ ways? Let’s see who wrote this episode…
“Written by Dan Schneider and Jake Farrow”. I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m sure there’s a pretty sure there’s an explanation for Freddie’s behavior. Now, to find it…
I must admit, having 37 external flashes hit your eyes simultaneously seems like a lot.
37,000? Dude, that’s impressive!
»Scene 4 – Ridgeway High Basement – Gibby’s«
Carly and Freddie are amazed that Gibby has actually managed to open a restaurant. By now, they should have somehow realized that anything is possible in a Dan Schneider show.
Carly still can’t believe it. Two words: it’s butter.
Only cool people can eat at Gibby’s. Friends of theirs. Even though I don’t know who the guy in the right table is. Or the hot girl next to him… I think I’m in love. But I’ve never talked to her. Can any of you introduce me? Cookie for whoever gets the reference.
Red pepper on pasta? Not my cup of tea, to be honest.
Sam has a cousin who has a nose. Shocker.
“So, I’ll hook it up?”
“Hook it, baby!”
Sibby shippers must be high right now…
Red pepper lemonade? That’s a first…
And Carly’s running around looking fo- Dayum… There’s some amazing girls in this school…
Okay, okay, we get it! You don’t like the lemonade…
»Scene 6 – Gibby’s Gibby’s«
Gibby’s has a new look. Round metal tables and a more roadside diner style. That is, comparing to the roadside diners I see on TV.
There’s a kid that just returned from juvie. Billy Boots.
Gibby doesn’t take his shirt off anymore. At least, not without a good reason.
Oh, no. Someone just pissed Gibby off… And that’s not a good thing to do.
So, when you insult Gibby, you get free stuff at his restaurant?
Oh, it’s just like in Buttersock 3: Return of the Buttersock…
Spencer called Carly and Freddie in from school, to show them his new toy/security system.
I must admit, this looks quite dangerous…
Okay, 1200 ft/s… That equals about… 818.1799 miles per hour or 365.7584 meters/second. Math…
Damn, those popcorn kernels are made of what? Metal?
»Meanwhile, back at Gibby’s«
Gibby’s back… Back again…
Sam to the rescue! It still amazes me that Sam can overpower anyone. And I wish to test that.
»Meanwhile, thousands of miles away«
As I wrote this, I had a MAJOR dejá vu moment.
Spencer, Carly and Freddie are going to use Mrs. Benson as bait, to turn off the kill machine.
When all else fails, unplug the machine.
Professor Howard is back from the moon… I don’t recall if he was killed by the Decepticons…
Mr. Howard, you can see all the restaurant supplies here, so the simplest answer, and the most obvious one is, “DUH!”
All the good things come to an end… and as such, Gibby’s will close…
And they say professors aren’t nice…
