She liked how he didn't go through with his joking threat to take his shirt off – especially since he was wearing a suit and that would have both been difficult, weird and completely out of place.Gibby the Date."If you're sick of dating jerks just date Gibby." Sam had meant it as a joke as if that was the very last thing Carly would ever do.Carly remembered the comment although she didn't do anything about it for months. "Hey Carly if you're free-""I'd love to.""Okay, cause I kinda meant it to be like a date." He had to clarify but he didn't necessarily act any less confident or sure of his actions. [goes after Sam] Carly: Alright listen, Sam, Freddie should be able to complain about people to you without worrying that you're gonna put them in a hospital! Carly: And Freddie, even though it's a little extreme to violate a man with bees, you should least appreciate that Sam did it because she cares about you.
