Seddie Friendship is the friendship pairing of Sam and Freddie.
Sam and Freddie have most likely known each other since the sixth grade or elementary school, after Sam met Carly. They now go to high school together, along with Carly. Throughout the series, Sam and Freddie's relationship has grown from pretending to be enemies (as a type of game played, as Dan has tweeted) to real friends. People also think that Sam and Freddie hate each other but deep down the two know they really care about each other. This has been shown numerous times when it's really important for one to receive help from the other. It is also known that people who think of the two as a couple also believe in their friendship.
Many Creddie shippers support this friendship, just like many Seddie shippers also support the Creddie Friendship.
Remember, this article is strictly for friendship, so no romantic pairings. (See Seddie for the Romantic Pairing.)
Sam (along with Carly) helps Freddie get ready for his date with Valerie.
Freddie tells Valerie that Carly and Sam are his friends. When Valerie reminds Freddie how Sam is always putting him down, he tries to defend her, saying she can't help it because she's "naturally vicious."
Sam tells Valerie that she's mad at her because she stole Freddie from iCarly, and that hurt the show.
Freddie wants Sam to appreciate the work he does for iCarly.
Sam tells Freddie that he is just as important to the show as she and Carly are.
Freddie and Sam hug each other without Carly telling them to.
After the show ends, Freddie compliments both Carly and Sam.
Freddie trusts Sam to get the spider off his cheek. Sam does kill the spider (although she does it by striking Freddie's face hard enough to send him to the floor).
Freddie deletes a chain e-mail from Gibby and is tricked by Sam into believing that this is the source of his bad luck. When he sees her manipulating his bike, he doesn't say anything and later gets back at her.
When Freddie tells Carly and Sam that his mother likes Lewbert, Sam starts to make one of her usual cutting remarks, when Freddie shouts, "No jokes, Puckett, this is serious chiz!" Sam raises her eyebrows at this. She may have been surprised, and perhaps impressed, that Freddie was standing up to her for a change.
Sam does back off of Freddie when she sees that he's really upset, and says, "Benson..." in a caring tone.
Just the fact that Sam did not retaliate for Freddie raising his voice to her could arguably be considered a moment of friendship for them.
Sam helped Freddie put an end to his mother's relationship with Lewbert.
When Mrs. Benson and Lewbert are arguing, Sam and Freddie glance at each other and smile.
Freddie doesn't seem too offended when Sam refers to him as a 'co-worker'.
Carly makes Sam feel guilty about what she did, which is a first for Sam to ever feel guilty about doing anything to Freddie. This shows that the two are progressing from full-blown enemies to more of a friendship.
Sam admits that she never kissed anyone in the webshow to save Freddie from embarrassment. She also threatens the audience if they tease Freddie again, and are considering teasing her.
Freddie lets Sam out to the balcony and talks to her, which Carly told Sam that he hasn't allowed anyone else to, not even his mom.
Sam offers Freddie a meatball.
Freddie says what Sam did was brave.
Sam apologizes to Freddie for everything.
She says that she'll apologize every few years. This implies that she hopes that she'll know Freddie for years.
Freddie says that it would be weird if she didn't make his life miserable, so he has gotten used to her as they have grown as friends.
Freddie went to Sam's party last year. "Not certain about that, he had to ask Carly about it."
Freddie says "Sam, even though you cause me physical and emotional pain -not joking-, I think of you and me as really close friends." This means despite Freddie and Sam's bickering, they're still really close and good friends and obviously care about each other.
Freddie also says that Sam's funny, cool and the only girl who can knock out a truck driver with only a carton of milk.
Sam smiles after Freddie´s speech.
Freddie leaves after Carly says she's making Sam girlier. (Maybe because Freddie doesn't want any part in making Sam change.)
Freddie and Carly cheer at Sam for beating up Jocelyn.
Sam showed no real reaction to Freddie's rather harsh statement, "This THING is not my friend!" Sam has shown a tendency to hide her emotions, but in this case, it may simply be that she knew Freddie well enough to know that he didn't really mean what he was saying.
Sam holds Freddie's backpack when he goes to "penetrate" the mob of kids.
Freddie once warned Sam not to lick a swing set, indicating that he was concerned about her getting sick.
Freddie looks concerned about Sam when she gets sick from eating the expired chocolates that were given to her by Missy.
Freddie helps Sam up when she is on the ground, looking very concerned.
As Sam leaves the studio coughing, Freddie watches her leave with a sad and concerned expression.
Sam goes to Freddie for help, because no one else would believe her about Missy. She seems hurt and upset when he doesn't seem to believe her, either.
Freddie wins a six-month cruise around the world, which he really wanted to go on, but he gives it up, solely to help Sam. This is easily one of the greatest sacrifices that an iCarly character has made to help a friend.
In the end, when Carly is saying how he cares about Sam, which he denied in the beginning of the episode, he just says "Well, she was really upset." Avoiding the subject and basically saying that he does.
Freddie giving up the cruise not only shows how much he cares about Sam, but also how far their friendship has come. In the past, he would never have done something like this for her.
Sam chases Freddie in school and grabs his hand, choosing to tell him first, instead of Carly, about the Bikini Dog Food Fight idea.
Freddie knows Sam well enough to know what she was thinking when she gives him a devilish grin, and pulls out the bikini. Even though he tries to run at first, he then starts to fight back and grabs the bikini from her, showing how he has grown over the show. In the beginning, he would just scream and try to run, but now he's grown used to her ways, and knows how to fight back.
Sam compliments Freddie's work on the ID badges.
When Carly asks Freddie to go with Spencer, he says "No! I wanna watch Sam beat up the tv writers!"
Sam and Freddie have a little fun together, mocking Carly's poorly drawn bunny.
When they are explaining why locker 239 is so amazing, Freddie brings up the cheerleaders to Gibby with a smirk, flirty look. It is the same look he often gives Sam, such as when he volunteers Sam in IGo Nuclear.
Sam offers Freddie some salami. This is notable because it means Sam wouldn't mind eating food that Freddie's bitten into. Also, Sam rarely shares food with other people.
When Freddie thinks he is the only one who won the locker, he is cheering and Sam looks upset/hurt.
When Freddie says "In your face you blonde headed demon!", Sam stands there with a disappointed look. However, she looks more disappointed with not winning the locker than being called names by Freddie. This could be an indication that Sam isn't annoyed as much as before and that she takes the insults as part of their growing friendship.
Sam says she would have given Freddie the locker for free.
When Sam's mom's car breaks locker 239, Freddie jumps behind Sam and pushes her against the wall to protect her.
Sam does a sketch that was Freddie's suggestion in season one.
When she teases him, he doesn't seem that bothered by it anymore, like he was used to it.
Freddie is visibly upset when Sam's tooth falls out. He looks concerned, and wants her to feel better, persuading her to go to the dentist.
Sam and Freddie promise that from then on, they would all tell each other everything. That means that Sam and Freddie are close enough friends that even the two of them would tell each other everything.
Freddie asks Carly how Sam did at the dentist, which shows that he cares about Sam.
When Carly tells Freddie that Sam thought her thumb was missing, Freddie looks concerned when asking "Was it?"
When the prisoners escape, Freddie looks at Sam multiple amount of times like he is expecting her to beat them up for him.
Sam could've beaten up the prisoners, as Dan Schneider later blogged, but the reason she didn't was because she considered the safety of Carly and Freddie, showing that she cares about Freddie.
When Carly says it's his fault, and proceeds to mock him: "You do realize we have to call the police," Sam does not make fun of Freddie.
Sam licks her finger and sticks it in Freddie's ear.
After Carly warns Freddie not to open Sam's locker, she said "We do not electrocute friends!" to Freddie and Sam. She was typically talking about Sam and Freddie being friends.
While the judges are eating, Sam and Freddie appear to be whispering amongst themselves, pointing at the judges.
Carly, Sam, and Freddie all group hug after they found out they won.
Sam and Freddie say, "What?! Why?!" at the same time.
When Sam slaps Freddie, he actually slaps her back. Their relationship seems to be getting less one-sided, as Freddie is learning to play Sam's game. Also, Sam doesn't retaliate when Freddie slaps her. They simply turn back to Carly as if nothing unusual had happened.
Freddie pulls Sam away from her locker when he believes that it is on fire, implying he doesn't want her to get hurt.
Freddie knows what Sam does to wake up her mother.
Sam not only allows Freddie to go on-screen, she invites him. She clicks the applause button on her remote instead of the "boo" button when Freddie comes on.
When Freddie and Spencer are talking about the European swimsuit models (who Spencer, Carly, and Sam all assume are female), Sam is seen giving the boys an amused smile. (Normally, one would expect Sam to be rolling her eyes at Freddie and making a snide remark, such as "Yeah, in your dreams, nub," or something of the sort.)
Freddie tells Sam before anyone else about the new iCarly record. It does not show him informing Carly. They also knuckle-touch when he tells her.
When Freddie runs up to Sam and excitedly asks, "Are you ready for this?", she smiles and says, "Sure, tell me." (In the past, she would have responded instead with a disparaging quip, like "Did some girl finally get desperate enough to give you the time of day?")
Sam says "I feel like a nub." and immediately apologizes to Freddie. Usually, Sam would not have apologized for calling Freddie a nub.
Freddie and Sam do the "What?! Why!!" routine again like they did in iCook and Sam tells Freddie, "Dude, we have got to stop doing that!"
Freddie holds Sam back when she's talking with the principals, pulling her back by her shoulder.
Freddie allows Sam to punch his backpack to get her anger out, rather than her usual method of punching Freddie.
Right before the punch, Sam asks Freddie "You sure?", giving him an offer to back out, showing she doesn't want to hurt him.
Sam punches Freddie's backpack, not Freddie. Usually she would take up any opportunity to hit Freddie, showing they've gotten closer.
Freddie does not get upset with Sam, either for broadcasting his argument with his mother over the webshow or for holding him back when his mother was showing his baby pictures to the Ridgeway students, even though both of these actions made his ordeal worse. As he has indicated before, Freddie is used to Sam making his life miserable.
When Freddie asks the girls if they like his new apartment, both Carly and Sam say yes, although it's clear that they don't. Later, Sam does tease Freddie a little about his apartment being "disgusting."
Freddie bursts into the Shay residence asking Carly if she heard that the billionaire picked up Sam in a helicopter. This implies that Freddie was the first one Sam called to inform on what was happening.
When they're doing the webshow and Sam says "Moon cheese, baby!", Freddie rolls his eyes and smiles.
When Sam and Freddie are having Space Madness, Freddie yells "Give me some of that meat!", which probably means that Freddie wouldn't mind sharing food with Sam.
Freddie smiles at Sam when she says "...and went wee-oo-wee-oo-wee-oo!"
Sam and Freddie actually start a normal conversation without killing each other.
Some people say that Freddie and Sam are really starting to get along better now, for Freddie didn't seem the slightest bit amused by Sam eating from the crockpot.
Apparently, Sam thinks people screaming at each other is fun, meaning she probably has fun fighting with Freddie.
When Sam insults Freddie, he actually stands up to her (as a true friend should), even though he knows she could beat him up (and actually has in the past). When Sam glares at him confrontationally, he doesn't back down, and only seems to leave because Carly asked him to.
Freddie tells Sam to be careful when she's approaching Bigfoot.
After Sam beats up two guys, Freddie comments "It's refreshing when she hurts someone who's not me".
When Sam threatens to give Freddie an "attitude adjustment," he doesn't back down, even though he has no reason to think she's bluffing. This indicates that he's grown used to her and is more willing to stand up to her now than he has in the past.
Also, the fact that Sam gave Freddie a chance to back out, rather than simply hurt him, indicates that she has grown to care more about him, or perhaps that she's more willing to show that she does, than she has in the past.
Freddie laughs when Sam says his mother hasn't had a date since Seinfield got cancelled.
In the extended version, Sam and Freddie both imitate Carly and simultaneously say "Steven..." in a dreamy way.
Sam teases Freddie about having a "cool aunt" and Freddie retorts saying that her family isn't full of "freaks and mutants." Sam merely says "touché" at this. In the past, she would have retaliated with insults, threats and/or beatings.
Sam and Freddie sit next to each other in class.
They smile at each other when Steven comes to say goodbye to Carly.
Freddie laughs when Sam insults Mr. Howard and when she says it's her dream to get kicked out of the class.
Freddie backs up Sam when Gibby says he didn't know what a hundred day kiss was and she responds with "you're a Gibby."
Sam and Freddie are paired up together to find Steven.
Freddie supports Sam in her rap battle by jumping up and down with Tori Vega.
Freddie and Sam run out the Shay's apartment together when Spencer tries to get Sam to tell Carly about their Dad. They then return and question if Spencer called them 'weenies' before leaving together once more.
They work together (with Gibby and Spencer) to organise a surprise online Birthday celebration for Carly and her dad.
Sam includes Freddie and Carly in her plans to escape to Amsterdam.
Freddie tells Sam to stay calm when the Secret Service is checking out the Shay loft.
Freddie says that Sam told him that the cops found Carly and Spencer’s stuff and he says that Sam went to go look for Gibby; this probably means that they (Sam and Freddie) were hanging out together before Sam left to find Gibby.
Sam and Freddie both agree with and encourage Gibby's secret restaurant idea.
During the iCarly webcast, while Freddie explains Halfoween to the audience Sam walks up behind him, wraps her arm over his shoulder, stands very close to him and speaks with her head beside his. Freddie is smiling while she does so.
She also gives him a little pat on the chest before she walks away.
Sam calls herself a "nub", which is what she used to call Freddie.
Sam playfully teases Freddie about his Lewbert costume saying it's an 'improvement'. She can clearly be seen smiling as she walks away after the exchange.
Sam is seem looking very concerned and upset when it is revealed Freddie was in the robot costume getting jerked.
