iSpy a Mean Teacher is the 8th episode of the first season of iCarly. It aired on November 3, 2007.
After watching Ms. Briggs shouting at several students that are passing by in the hallway (ending in her throwing down and stomping on an orange offered to her by one well-meaning classmate), Carly becomes inspired to do an iCarly feature on "What Mean Teachers Do When They Aren't In School."
Freddie buys a pie-shaped spy camera, with an obvious lens on the side, much to Carly and Sam's amusement. They tease him a lot about it and what's even more hilarious to them is that it came with an oversized spoon.
Carly and Freddie sneak off to Ms. Briggs' house with the pie-cam to shoot a video of what she is doing in her free time. When a bee appears, and apparently is interested in the fake pie, Freddie panics because he is allergic to bees, and runs inside Ms. Briggs' house. Carly follows him, and they have to hide in a closet that turns out to be a shrine dedicated to Randy Jackson. They spend hours in the room and eat Randeos to pass the time. They call Sam for help and before they get ready to leave Freddie snags a bit of Randy Jackson cologne. The trio are then caught by Ms. Briggs. After Freddie trips on her bagpipes and accidentally breaks them, she scolds them and wants to suspend them and call the police. She offers to let them off the hook if she may appear on iCarly and play her bagpipes. Carly, Sam, and Freddie reluctantly agree.
When Ms. Briggs appears on iCarly, the show starts losing viewers. Even worse is that it was their biggest audience yet by far (over 500,000 viewers), but Freddie manages to save it by playing funny videos on the green screen behind her back. The next day at school, students applaud Ms. Briggs and she thinks she's getting credit for her "true musical artistry." She notices Freddie has a nice cologne on him, which turns out to be some Randy Jackson cologne he 'stole' from the room Carly and he were stuck in. This ends the episode.
