A great example of this is when I created spaghetti tacos on iCarly. Spencer was making dinner for the kids, and as I was writing the scene I thought to myself, "Spencer is a super creative, wacky kind of guy – he's not going to make something normal or boring."

To this day, 5 or 6 years after that episode aired, I still get frequent comments and photos from fans about how they made spaghetti tacos at home. In fact, it became such a national fad, the New York Times wrote an article about spaghetti tacos, which you can read here:
