Sikowitz hosts a sleepover party to help Tori, André, Robbie, Cat, Jade, and Beck learn about method acting. Each person chooses the character another person will play. Whoever breaks character before the next morning is eliminated from the party and banished from his house forever. Tori's character is a police officer obsessed with Raisin Bran that wears a lot of red lipstick (chosen by André based on a dream he had), Robbie plays a motivational speaker who drank a beverage that gave him jelly legs (chosen by Cat), Cat's persona (created by Beck) works as an annoying 80's comedian, Beck's character is an Englishman with a Cockney accent who loves to invade other people's personal space (chosen by Robbie), Jade's character (chosen by Tori) is a happy-go-lucky Alabama farm girl who is positive about everything, and André acts as a marathon runner who is nine months pregnant (upon Jade's request).
Robbie loses the game first when he is fooled into breaking character by Sikowitz, who crashes through his kitchen window to catch a fly and pretends to be injured so that his students will forget the game in their concern. Sikowitz's nephew Jason then enters from another room, and Tori (in character) flirts with him. When Jason mentions he'll be going to the Moxi to see a movie with his friends, Cat breaks character voluntarily in order to go with him. André's grandmother, who is paranoid about why he has not come home, frantically calls him multiple times asking where he is, but André only continues to stay in character, confusing her even further. This prompts her to come to Sikowitz's home and ask demandingly, who 'did that to him' (meaning his pregnancy). As André tries to explain in a whispered voice, he breaks character and is sent away by Sikowitz, who had heard him.Sikowitz then asks Jade to go get a tray of hot quesadillas fresh from the oven. Jade burns her hand, but manages to stay in character while in pain, but she eventually runs out of the house to curse and destroy the neighbor's car, losing the game. Eventually, Tori and Beck's characters begin to drive Sikowitz nuts, so he leaves the room so they can't bother him, and they fall asleep. In the morning, Beck breaks character when he asks Tori what time it is in his normal voice. Tori, realizing that Beck broke character, becomes very excited and shakes Raisin Bran on him, declaring that she is "VICTORIOUS!" She continues to stay in character while she celebrates her win.
Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Vega are trying to celebrate their anniversary by watching a sad and romantic movie, but are interrupted by all the eliminated students (first Robbie, then Cat and Jason, then André, then Jade), all of whom, for unknown reasons, find the film super hilarious.

- Likewise, Dan himself said that this episode is reminiscent of his older shows, like All That and The Amanda Show; these shows featured unusual characters who tried their best to annoy others.

- Robbie, when Sikowitz (pretending to be hurt) asks who's there, and Robbie reveals his real name.
- Cat, when she cheerfully joins Sikowitz's nephew Jason to go to the movies.
- André, when his grandmother comes in and he tries to deny being André, but then he breaks character when he tries to explain to her that it is an acting exercise.
- Jade, who after accidentally burning her hands by touching a very hot tray, runs outside, and Sikowitz claims she "never broke character", until she yells and breaks a car window. Sikowitz and Tori retreat inside when a police car drives by.
- Beck, who after he and Tori crashed on Sikowitz's chairs, he says, "What time is it?" in his normal voice, forgetting his British accent.
- Season's Last Line: "I am a police officer, and I am Victorious! Enjoy some raisin bran, you freakish Brit!"
- Cat says "Where's the beef?" in the same tone that the cast does (excluding Tori) near the end of April Fool's Blank.
- Ending Tagline: (Sikowitz) "I can't take it anymore!"
- Trina is absent in this episode although she is mentioned by her dad when Robbie drops by the house. According to her TheSlap page, she was at the mall with her friends.
- This is the first time Rex has hit on Tori & felt uncomfortable (Tori kissed Rex after Rex joked that Tori's part was to be a girl who loved kissing boys his size & Rex probably never expected Tori to kiss him) Rex also never appears after that.
- Sikowitz likes liquid soap just like Gibby from "iCarly".
- The outfit that Jade wears is similar to the outfit Carly wears during the "The Idiot Farm Girl Who Thought the Cowboy's Mustache was a Squirrel" segment in "iCarly".
- This is the second time that Cat's hair is curly (even though the actress who portrays Cat Ariana Grande's hair is naturally curly). First being Pilot.
- A picture of André in-character is seen in Freddie's blog on iCarly.com.
- This is the second episode that a main character has had to play a farm girl, the first being in the episode The Bird Scene (Tori).
- It is implied in this episode that Cat broke up with Danny since she is flirting and going out with Jason in this episode.
- André's shirt says Daka on it. This was a reference to the iCarly episode "iPromote Techfoots," and the Drake and Josh episode "Really Big Shrimp."
- This episode reveals that Mr. and Mrs.Vega are aware of Robbie's crush on their older daughter, as when Robbie shows up at their home Mr. Vega remarks, "Tori’s not here."
- Jade almost broke character when she threatened Beck (in character) while eating Raisin Bran together with Tori (in character).
- This is the first episode to be self-referential, when Tori declares herself "Victorious" for not breaking character and winning Sikowitz's challenge.
- This is the second time that Beck was forced to speak in a British accent. The first time was in The Bird Scene
- So far, this is the last episode where Jade's hair color is brown.
- Sikowitz informs Tori and Beck not to look under the cabinet in his bathroom implying he is hiding adult films.
- When Jade kicks the neighbor's car window after breaking character she shouts "move this car" which sounds like she said a curse word.
- The order in which they were banished from Sikowitz's house goes: Robbie-Cat-André-Jade, which leaves Beck and Tori. This was the same order in which they were eliminated in their alphabetical improv in Pilot, only that Robbie is not in the game.
- According to Sikowitz, he had claimed he'd gotten a recipe from Crispin Glover, Crispin Glover is an actor who starred in Back to the Future as George McFly.
- With the series including the first season starting on March 27, 2010, and this episode airing on March 26, 2011 as a season finale, season 1 went on for almost exactly a year.
- This is the first time Jade has said something about using a car to hurt herself. In this episode she says "I'd rather slam my tongue in a car door". In The Worst Couple, she says "If we're gonna keep talking about Tori's phone, can someone take me to a car door so I can slam my face in it."
- This is the first time Sikowitz referrers to Tori as Torro. (Torro is a fatty tuna according to Sikowitz)
- This is the first time Sikowitz' house is seen.
- Although Trina is not shown in this episode she is mentioned by Tori's dad.
- Toro sushi is also mentioned in iCarly season 6 episode 4 when Spencer calls Carly fatty tuna.
- André's grandma yelling "Come with me!" might be a reference to the song "Pure Imagination" in "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory", a film that might be the inspiration for this episode.
- Robbie and his Pearpad/Pearphone.
- The kids appearing at the Vega's house and laughing at Terms of Endearment, which is a romantic tragedy, not a comedy.
Sikowitz: Who wants to have a sleepover at my house?
Jade: [Raises her hand] I do. [Everyone looks at her] Oh come on! You guys don't wanna see where this lunatic lives? No offense.
Sikowitz: It's alright, Jade. I savour your bitterness like a sweet, rancid cream sauce.
Jade: So who picks the characters we play?
Sikowitz: Beck, you'll choose for Cat, Cat will choose for Robbie, Robbie will choose for Beck, André will choose for Tori, Tori will choose for Jade, Jade, you'll choose for André. I think that deserves some applause!
Beck: Cat will play a 1980's stand-up comedian...who's very annoying!Cat: I wanna be a unicorn.
Beck: You can't.
Sikowitz: Now, Cat! Who will Robbie be playing?
Cat: Well, I've decided, Robbie's role should be a motivational speaker.
Robbie: Pfft, I can do that!
Cat: Who just drank some weird beverage that makes his legs weak and wobbly!
Robbie: Okay, so, uh, I'm a motivational speaker with...jelly legs.
Cat: Yeah, I'm creative.
Sikowitz: Wonderful. Robbie, tell us the character you've chosen for Beck.
Robbie: Sure! One sec. [Searches on his Pear Pad] Okay. Beck will be playing a guy from England whose accent is really hard to understand and he's always invading people's personal space.
Beck: [In an English accent] No problem.
Sikowitz: Andre! What do you have in store for Toro?
Tori: Did you just call me Toro?
Tori: It's To-ri!
Sikowitz: I know. But I do love that fatty tuna.
Tori: [Asks Robbie] Should I be offended?
Andre: Okay, Tori's character will be a cop who wears way too much red lipstick and is obsessed with Raisin Bran.
Tori: Where did you come up with that?
Andre: Well, see, I had this dream last night where this lady cop was like...and she was like...then I was like...I just thought of it.

Sikowitz: [Chases the fly] Come here, you winged nuisance!
Tori: I'm a police officer would you like to join me in a handful of raisin bran? Cat: What's the deal with Raisin Bran? Is it raisins? Is it bran? I wanna know!
Robbie: Ladies, please! It's not about the raisins... or the bran! It's about the future and living your dreams! Oh there go the legs! (Lands on the floor)
[After Jason leaves with Cat]
Tori: And to think I was gonna let that boy eat my Raisin Bran!
André: I think I'm gonna have a baby!
André's grandmother: Baby?!? What the bug are you talking about!
Jade: My goodness, that tray was hot! Oh, well. Look at it! My skin's starting to blister! And I do believe that's the sweet smell of my burning flesh!
Sikowitz: Uh, Jade, perhaps I should try-
Jade: Who's Jade? My name is Betsy Goldenheart. A happy farmgirl who's experiencing extreme pain right now! Aowwwnng... [smiles and exits house]

Jade: Why, yes, that is my belly button!
Tori: Have you ever considered filling it with Raisin Bran?
Tori: (Stuffs Raisin bran in Jade's mouth) Jade: Sure! I'd love to eat raisin bran that has been manhandled by your filthy hands!
Robbie: Sorry that we hurt your feelings we just think that method acting is kinda dumb.
Sikowitz: Of course you think method acting is dumb it's too challenging for you.
Jade: Yeah, I don't think that's the real issue here.
Sikowitz: Staying in character no matter what happens something only true professional actors can pull off...sometimes I forget you're all just children...amateurs...
Cat: He called us amateurs!
Rex: Your wack job teacher called you out! Ha! I love it!
Sikowitz: Oh I'm sorry I didn't mean to hurt your amateur, feelings!
Cat: [Gasps] He did it again!
Tori: Do you have anything sharp or pointy in your pockets that could injure me?
Sikowitz: I certainly hope not.
Robbie: Ah yes, thank you for inviting us into your fine home, but don't forget to thank yourself because if you just believe in yourself there's nothing you can't do!
Robbie: I'm Kevin Cornblew motivational speaker. I've devoted my life to helping teens ah there go the legs!
Sikowitz: Are you alright?
Robbie: I'm right as rain thank you for asking.

Ms. Harris: Where's Andre?
Sikowitz: Andre per say, isn't ... here.
Beck: Hello love, you look a little chapped can I interest you in a...
Ms. Harris: NO!!!
- Though Sikowitz compliments Jade for not breaking character once the whole time she was in the house, she somewhat broke character as she threatened Beck, although she didn't necessarily imply she would do bad things.
- When Sikowitz first rings in on the status, it's 9:27 PM, and André's grandmother calls shortly after. The scene then goes to the Vega's house when Robbie arrives, then when Sikowitz updates again it's 11:14 PM. Normally, wouldn't the rest of the gang have been at home at the time of the second to last scene when they're all watching the movie with Tori's parents?
- The episode ends at Saturday morning. Technically, Tori and Beck both had succeeded in the method acting exercise.
- After the commercial break, you can see Beck playing with Cat's face. But when it shows them again, Cat is near the window, nowhere near Beck and Beck was in the same place as he was supposedly playing with Cat's face. However, she could've walked away within that four or five seconds, but probably not.
- André's grandmother knew where to find André despite not receiving any information.
- Jade's hand seemed to be fine at the Vega's house, but it hurt enough for her to break a car before.
