Needless to say Carly and birthdays don’t go together, so this year she wants to keep things simple. Enter Spencer (Jerry Trainor).
When Carly said she wanted to liven up her birthday, she meant put a candle on her signature birthday pie. Spencer took this simple request as throw his unlucky sister a raging party. Even Principal Franklin (Tim Russ) makes an appearance at Carly’s surprise soirée.
