"Tori Fixes Beck and Jade"
"Robbie Sells Rex"
One Thousand Berry Balls is the 7th episode of Season 4 of Victorious and the 54th episode overall. It aired on December 8, 2012, the fifth-lowest amount of viewers for a Victorious episode.
Robbie wants to ask Cat to their school's cowboy luau, the Cow Wow, but Cat feels awkward about it and attempts to run away from him. When talking to an indifferent Jade, Cat says that she doesn't want to go to the Cow Wow with Robbie, but at the same time she really likes him and doesn't want him to go to the dance with a different girl. Robbie eventually corners Cat in the Blackbox Theater and tells her that he is going to the dance with Gabriella, inciting a great deal of jealousy within Cat.
At the Cow Wow, Cat sees Robbie with Gabriella, so she takes Sinjin and dances with him so that Robbie would notice and become jealous. Sinjin then kicks Cat in the head when going for a dance move, knocking Cat out. When she regains consciousness, she asks Robbie, who had come to her aid after she got kicked, to stay with her. After Tori and André's song, Robbie asks Cat if she wants to know a secret and kisses her. Shocked, she runs away from him and rides her bike home.
With Tori strapped for cash, André gets her a job at the yogurt shop that he works at, Yotally Togurt. Tori and André eventually get the task of having to give out 1,000 Berry Balls. However, because of the strange outfit that Tori has to wear, in addition to the Berry Balls looking weird, she has a very hard time giving them out. Eventually, Tori solves this problem by sticking them all in her hat, but the balls start to melt and drip all over her face. She tells the manager that it's a lot of mascara and André carries her out, saying that he's taking her to the "Mascara clinic". The two of them manage to make it to the Cow Wow in time to sing Here's 2 Us.

- This is the second kiss that Robbie and Cat share in the series. The first occurred in Stage Fighting.
- Ending tagline: "A wiener?" - Tori
- Because of the promo and the link of the episode, many Cabbie fans speculated this to be the episode where Robbie and Cat finally become a couple, as Ariana Grande had once tweeted that Cat and Robbie were to become a couple in a future episode.
- This is the second episode with a scene where Robbie is wearing Matt Bennett's glasses instead of his own. The first was the final scene Robbie was in, "Tori Tortures Teacher."
- This was Lane's last appearance in the show.
- Rather oddly; not just for Victorious but for television shows in general; the title refers to the subplot, Tori having to give out one thousand berry balls, rather than the A-plot.
- This is the only episode of the fourth season where Tori is the subject of the subplot instead of the A-plot.
- Even though the boss bought Tori's and André's story, mascara cannot fall from their forehead they fall from their eyes.
- It would have been impossible for Tori to stuff almost a thousand berry balls in her hat, but she could have eaten some, thrown some out, and stuffed the remaining ones in her hat, but only a few could have been able to fit in there.
- In the scene where Robbie confronts Cat in the Blackbox Theatre, Matt Bennett is wearing his own glasses instead of Robbie's glasses.
- Robbie said he had to look up the word "si" in the dictionary, but in Beggin' on Your Knees he told a girl she was in his Spanish class.
