Tori the Zombie is the 6th episode of the first season of Victorious.
At Tori's house that night, Cat makes a gray monster mask and glues it to Tori's face, using Grizzly Glue, which stated by Trina, "is an industrial cement." With major ferocity, Tori asks what Cat was thinking. It turned out that Cat was caught by the "adorable" little grizzly bear logo on the front of the glue bottle. Trina calls the doctor, and Cat calls the glue company. The doctor doesn't turn out to be a lot of help, but the glue company tells Cat that the solvent isn't sold in stores, but is sold at the factory in Bakersfield. Trina and Cat agree to drive to Bakersfield and pick up the solvent, hoping to get Tori's hideous face back to normal.
On the way there, Trina and Cat face many obstacles. For example, being stopped by the police and getting yelled at by Tori. They make things worse by stopping for ice cream, interfering with the time that they got back. Tori eventually doesn't have a choice, and has to start the play with the mask on. Eventually, the girls signal Tori to come offstage. The girls use fiddling knives and the solvent to scrape the mask off Tori's face. Eventually it works, in which Tori goes back onstage.
When the play and credits are over, the playwright, Sophia Michelle, expresses her confusion by not understanding why Penny (Tori's character) had a hideous face. Sophia told the cast that she "got it," leaving the cast confused. It turned out, Sophia got that everything is beautiful, even if it may seem as hideous as a monster mask.
- This is the first time Beck sings.
- This is the first time Tori makes Cat cry.
- This is the first episode title to only include one character's name in it
- This episode reveals that Sunshine Girls (a Girl Scouts parody previously seen on iCarly) exists on the show. Tori scares a few of them off with her zombie face.
- It is revealed that nothing has scared Trina ever since she saw her grandmother nude. However, in one of the "Tori Takes Requests" videos, Tori manages to scare Trina seven times by sneaking up on her at random moments while André tapes it.
- The car that Trina and Cat are in looks like a Volkswagen Beetle.
- This is the first episode to have a scene in which all seven main characters (Tori, Trina, Cat, Robbie, Beck, Jade, and André) appear in the same area together (in this case, at the very end).
- In Driving Tori Crazy, it is revealed that the song Cat and Trina sing when they are in the car is Five Fingaz To the Face. The dirty line Cat refused to sing was "I'm a pirate and you're my booty."
- This is the first time we see Cat and Trina interacting with each other and developing a friendship.
- Running Gags: Sinjin turning on the disco music while the group is in the Blackbox Theater, Trina honking her horn at other drivers, Cat putting Tori on speaker and saying "Tori, you are now on speaker, Trina is also in the car," the director taking anti-anxiety pills.
- Trina explains she cannot get cosmetic surgery because she has to be at least 18 (but she was in The Birthweek Song). This is probably because this episode was produced before The Birthweek Song.
- In the beginning, it is shown that Beck was massaging Jade's neck.
- Freezy Queen is a parody of Dairy Queen.
- The glue Cat uses to attach the mask to Tori's face is a parody of Gorilla Glue.
- Trina wears a pair of boots that you can buy on this website.
- When Robbie gets punched during the play, it was actually still Matt who did the stunt.
- Even that Victorious shows PearPhones as a parody, it is shown that Trina used to have an iPhone when Cat found her phone under the seat.
- The teacher "Marty" is played by Adam Kulbersh. He came very close to getting the role of "Sikowitz".
- Jade's line, "No! Fifteen years ago you're mother gave birth to the wrong thing!" – was not in the script. Dan added that on stage while they were filming the scene.
- Tori's line, "Ohhh... well that is special, and I have been affected" – was not in the script. Dan added it on stage while they were filming the scene.
- The writers and Dan spent half an hour thinking of what the glue should be called. They finally came up with "Grizzly Glue".
- Tori's line "And my nose itches and I can't scratch it!" – was not in the script. Dan added in on stage while they were filming the scene.
- Bakersfield is a real town – and it is about a 2 hour drive from Los Angeles.
- Tori's ringtone sound is the "birthweek song".
- Jade's line "We're indoors – lose the scarf" – was not in the script. Dan added it while they were on stage filming the scene.
- Dan made up the name "Freezy Queen".
- All the women who work on Victorious thought that Avan ("Beck") looked extremely cute in his bell boy uniform.
- Victoria (in real life) was so happy to finally get the zombie makeup off of her face. She had to wear it for HOURS during shooting. The scene where Cat and Trina get it off her face was shot late at night... it was one of the last scenes they shot that day.
- The very last shot they did for this episode was the whole gang on stage, dancing wildly to the disco music. It was a bit past midnight, and they were all exhausted (especially the actors) because it had been a long, tough week of rehearsing and filming. But everyone pulled it together and found the energy to disco dance for a few minutes.
- Ending Tagline: (Rapping) "You smell so fruity". - Trina
- When Sinjin says "I love that hairbrush," you can see the disco lights on at the top of the screen even though music cannot be heard and is turned off. Most likely he forgot to turn off the disco lights.
- In Tori Gets Stuck, Tori had an understudy for the play Steamboat Suzy, but she has no understudy in this episode probably for the sake of the plot or the understudy was sick or not doing the play due to a reason.
- During the performance, in the wide screen you could see Tori sneak behind the rest of the cast but wasn't done getting the mask off.
- Beck's dance double (stunt double) is very noticeable when he picks up Tori and when Tori is getting her makeup off: the wig is too fluffy and has bangs.
- There is no way Tori could have appeared the way she did in between those dancers even with a trap door there wasn't enough time in between the scenes.
- Trina said nothing has scared her ever since she saw her grandmother nude. However, in one of the "Tori Takes Requests" videos, Tori can scare Trina seven times by sneaking up on her. However, Trina was likely bluffing or exaggerating.
- When Sinjin accidentally turned the disco music on, Jade yelled "No, 15 years ago, your mother gave birth to the wrong thing!!". She was most likely talking to his birth but in 'How Trina Got In' it is revealed that Sinjin is the same age as Trina (18). However, it's possible that Jade didn't know this.
