I C F K 0 2

Tori and friends try to find the remaining letters of Ke$ha's name to win a private concert.

When a promise from Tori's childhood comes back to bite her, she is stuck as Trina's personal assistant for one month. Trina has many ridiculous things that she has planned for Tori to do for her.

When she learns from André that there is a contest going on to find the letters that spell "KE$HA" and win a free private concert from her, she jumps at the chance. Trina says that if she can do it, Tori can stop being her assistant.

Tori finds the e

With the help of Beck, Robbie, Cat, Jade and Rex, they find K, E, and A. As they search through tons of ice cream containers, Robbie suggests not letting the unused ice cream go to waste. He decides to take it to the park and give it to the kids. While everyone knows that Robbie means well, Beck tries to warn him that this could be misinterpreted as pedophilia. However, Jade, amused by what the kids' mothers might do and knowing the Robbie needs to learn this for himself, urges Beck to just let Robbie go. After a while, the gang is out of ice-cream, and Jade mentions that Beck went to buy ice-cream and may have been almost there. As expected, Robbie returns after having been assaulted by protective mothers. Beck returns and tells them to check Ke$ha's newest update, and they find out that a guy from Northridge already won the contest and the contest is over. Although the contest is over, Tori had to help Trina take a bath, meaning that she is still Trina's assistant.


Next day in school, Beck and Jade go to Tori to check her and she tells them that Trina "sleep sweats". Trina asks for Tori and demands her to answer her phone because it's Lendle and he wants to be her boyfriend. Trina tells Tori to tell him that she died. Tori did as told and Lendle asks her out. Trina confronts Lendle because she got mad that he hit on her sister after she died for 10 seconds. Cat calls Tori to see a video online. Ke$ha reveals that the dude faked it and the contest is now officially back on.


Ke$ha's performance of "Blow" at the end of the episode

Tori and her friends go through many buckets of Ice Cream. Cat finds the H, and everyone is happy for her. They figure that the hardest letter, $, will be in the least popular flavor of ice cream, which is Funky Nut Blast. Jade, Cat, Tori, and André race to the Quickie Mart to find only one carton containing an H. Cat found a boy eating Funky Nut Blast then Tori asks for the carton, but he ignores them. Eventually, he agrees after Jade promised to pay him $30. Cat accidentally spills out something about the concert, seeing the letter found at the bottom of the carton. But the little boy wants to make another deal, to come to the private concert and the three girls kiss him.

The kids end up seeing Ke$ha perform her latest single, Blow. The little boy now asks the girls for their kiss, but they trick him by locking him out of the house because they don't want to kiss him. Trina sees the little boy locked out and feels bad for him and lets him in, the boy tells her what the girls did to him. Trina offers a kiss. The boy, disgusted, promptly leaves.

Guest Stars

​Songs Featured



Ke$ha sings "Blow" during a private concert.

Ke ha!
  • Ke$ha is the second guest star on Victorious, the first being Perez Hilton (Wi-Fi in the Sky).
  • This continues the running gag of compliments of Tori's cheekbones and Jade imitating Tori like an actress from the 40's (Judy Garland) from the previous episode.
  • Lendle, the doctor's son from Rex Dies, is mentioned by Trina on the phone when she says she won't be his girlfriend and asks Tori to tell her she has moved to Canada and died, after that moment he asks Tori but Trina busts him and angrily shouts to him.
  • When Tori can't find the letters, she yells "I hate everything!" In IParty with Victorious, Trina yells "Ugh, I hate everything!" when she is forced to miss Kenan Thompson's party.
  • For some reason in this episode and Tori Gets Stuck, Jade seems to have $30 to offer to pay someone quote "we'll give you 30 bucks for it" (referring to the funky nut blast) and in Tori Gets Stuck Sinjin was caught making a fake phone call to Tori and then said that Jade had promised him $30 and a full makeover.
  • The letters that are found in order were K, A, E, H, and $.
  • A few of the things that Trina made Tori do for her include: washing her hair, change the song on her phone (even though the phone is right next to her), pluck her toe hair, blow her nose, sponge her "sleep sweat", etc.
  • In this episode, Robbie is still using the old PearPad.
  • This episode is the third time a character has a nervous breakdown. The first when Tori couldn't figure out the Bird Scene, and the second with Robbie in Rex Dies.
  • Tori probably thought she would marry a prince at age 16 as many princesses from fairy tales married at that age. She may be referring to Disney Princesses (Aurora married Phillip at age 16, Cinderella married Prince Charming probably at age 16, Ariel marries Eric at 16, Belle marries Adam probably at age 16, and Mulan marries Shang at 16).
  • Jade is nice to Tori throughout this episode, meaning that they are having a better friendship.
  • This episode aired on Good Friday, in addition to being a part of Nick's Earth Day block. It is also the only episode of the year or season to air on a Friday.
  • The episode was #9 on the top-selling TV episodes overall on the iTunes 2011 Rewind.
  • Part of this episode was filmed a day before The Wood premiered.
  • This is the third time ice cream was involved. The first time was in Tori the Zombie when Cat and Trina stopped by an ice cream store while retrieving Tori's Grizzly solvent. The second time was in Freak the Freak Out when Trina asked Tori to give her some.
  • During the ending credits, a blooper from the episode was shown. It's Tori having a hard time removing the ice cream from the container. All the actors stayed in character during this scene.
  • The little boy in the episode in real life is Ke$ha's little brother named Louie Sebert.
  • This is the second episode to have a concert at the Vega house. The first being The Birthweek Song.
  • This episode plot is a somewhat layered reference to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory because of the 5 letters to spell Kesha hidden in the ice creams tubs resembling the golden tickets hidden in 5 Wonka bars. There's also the dude from Northridge who said he won the contest but ended up faking it, just like the forged 5th ticket, followed by Sinjin saying "Run for it, Tori. Run straight home, and don't stop until you get there!"
  • Tori and Trina in the Bathroom

    Tori giving Trina a hair wash in Ice Cream for Ke$ha

    This is the first and only time we've seen any room in Tori's house, besides the front door, back patio, and the living/kitchen area.
    • We have never seen either Tori's or Trina's bedrooms in the series, and this is the first and only time we see their bathroom.
  • The bathroom where Tori washes Trina's hair is the same bathroom shown in the iCarly episode iToe Fat Cakes, where Carly got her toe stuck in the faucet of the tap. The room size, bathtub position and space between the bathtub and the walls are all the same with the only differences being the different wallpaper and window positions.
  • Jade is wearing the same outfit at the very end of the episode that was shown in A Christmas Tori.
  • Ending tagline: "I hate everything." - Tori
  • In the UK, the break comes when Tori is blowing Trina's nose. In the US and possibly other countries, the break comes when Tori pushes Trina into the bath. This is probably because some children in the UK might find this offensive and upset younger viewers (possibly).
  • A fan tweeted to Dan saying "@DanWarp is it true Ke$ha is going to be on an episode of @victorious !? @keshasuxx" Dan tweeted back saying "@JenxCoco Yep! It's VERY true! :)".
  • Dan said "This A.M. I'm putting FINAL TOUCHES on the #iOMG episode... AND editing the next @Victorious episode: "Ice Cream for Ke$ha"- FUN! :)".
  • Dan said on Facebook "Here working on the new @Victorious episode "Ice Cream For Kesha" - This one is HILARIOUS, and Kesha does an AMAZING performance!"
  • Cat dreams about Robbie, notably it was a nightmare. Little kids were trying to eat them, and Robbie let them eat Cat.
  • Robbie has a bucket list: ride a pony, take a cooking class, (he was embarrassed) other things...
  • The letters K & A mentioned in the episode can be referenced as the original ESRB E rating.


The episode was received very well by most fans and premiered to 4.01 million viewers, making it the most-watched scripted cable telecast of the night (second overall only to an NBA playoffs game between the Lakers and the Hornets).

Running Gags

  • Tori and her friends mostly finding Ks and As.
  • Ke$ha asking Tori if those were real cheekbones.
  • Jade imitating Tori as an actress from the 40s.
  • Tori being Trina's number 1 assistant.
  • People agreeing with Trina to let Tori do whatever she says.


  • In Beck Falls for Tori, Jade asks, "Who can't ride a bike?" and Rex replies, "Take a guess." prompting Robbie to say, "Can't you keep any secret?" Robbie also said on (in the "Robbie's Car and Dale Squires" gallery) that he can't ride a bike. But in this episode, Robbie states he got off his bike to give the kids ice cream, and later on TheSlap mentions that someone stole his bicycle seat.
    • Robbie probably can not ride a regular two-wheel bicycle but can ride his four-wheeled surrey bike seen in Driving Tori Crazy.
  • How can Robbie ride his bike if he has those huge buckets of ice cream?
    • It is possible that Robbie connected a wagon to his bike. Or Robbie was riding his four-wheel surrey bike seen in Driving Tori Crazy.
  • A unilateral (or one-sided) contract is not enforceable by the promisee unless the promisee takes an action or refrains from an action in reliance on it. Tori can not be forced to follow through on her promise because no return promise or reliance was made by Trina. In addition, a contract by a minor is unenforceable.
  • Robbie said in his profile video that he is lactose intolerant. However, he is eating a lot of ice cream (which has lactose).
    • He may have lied about being lactose intolerant or he may like ice cream so much that he does not care about the consequences to his body.
