With the mob of boys at the Groovy Smoothie seeking a night with her at the dance, Freddie decides that the best way to sort them out is with a speed-dating contest, where everybody sorts out boys that they think Carly would like.
Malika wears a long-flowing purple magician's robe a matching hat, way too much makeup, and annoys the hell of most everyone she meets, but she's anything but boring.
Of course, Freddie's holding out for Carly, but as with most of the series, she's not interested.
When Sam hijacks an i Carly web cast to beg for boys for Carly, she forces her sidekick to ask Gibby to the dance in retaliation, yet for some reason he turns her down.
Meanwhile, Carly finds that due to Sam's stunt, she's overwhelmed with potential suitors.
***SPOILER ALERT*** Even a cynic like myself can have some sense of romance within him, and this episode stirs it up a bit.
Not since The Suite Life of Zack and Cody's "Prom Story" episode has there been a more heart-warming episode of a kid's show.Carly has her heart set on a boy for the Girl's choice dance, but the boy she likes already has somebody else.Sam has no interest in anybody, and Freddie has three girls asking him out, including the magic-obsessed Malika, played by a girl named Skyler Day.It's the closest they'll both come to being a couple until "i Saved Your Life" four months later.The episode also introduced many a fan to the music of Chrissy Chase.Oh, but there's something here that Danny Kallis, Jim Geoghan, and Pamela Eells-O' Connell didn't add to Zack & Cody; Sam walking in on Carly & Freddie at the Groovie Smoothie while they slow dance, and then walking out in jealousy.
