Really Big Shrimp
Helicopter is the sixteenth episode of the fourth season of Drake & Josh. It aired on August 5, 2007.
After Drake wins a chance to skydive out of a helicopter, his parents go completely against it and restrict him from doing it. Drake disobeys his parents and goes skydiving anyway. Josh tries to stop him, but both of them end up going. Soon, they lose their pilot, radio, and a parachute. They eventually run out of fuel. They jump out with one parachute as a last resort to escape. Then, they go to their house and the pilot arrives at the house. Their dad has to pay $400,000 in order to buy the pilot a new helicopter and then Drake and Josh ground themselves for 2 weeks.
Drake: It's the fuel gauge! We're on E.
Josh: Well, maybe E means extra fuel! TELL ME E MEANS EXTRA FUEL!
Drake: Dude, E means empty; we're out of fuel!
Josh: AUUGGGHHH! (gets in praying position) Dear, Savior. I'm sorry about the time I stole that piece of candy when I was eight. Dear, Savior. I'm sorry about the time I watched that pretty lady's laundry spin in the dryer. Dear, Savior--
Drake: Will you stop that? We're gonna get out of this!
Josh: HEY NOW, HEY NOW. DON'T DREAM IT'S OVER!
- The helicopter is called "Schnieder's Helicopter" and Schnieder is the last name of the creator of Drake & Josh, iCarly, Zoey 101, Victorious, and Sam & Cat. There were other content found in this series as well as other DanWarp shows that have Dan's last name.
- Paramore Studios is a parody of Paramount Pictures, as well as a reference to the rock band Paramore.

- Drake mentions his video game involves fighting giant red lobsters. This is a reference to the Amanda Show, which commonly featured giant red lobsters.

- In "Really Big Shrimp", the Premiere burns down, but in this episode, the Premiere is still standing and clearly unharmed. Also, in Really Big Shrimp, Josh was promoted to assistant manager but in this episode he was still a regular employee. This is because Really Big Shrimp was due to be the series finale, not Dance Contest.
- When Drake and Josh are in the helicopter, at certain points, you can clearly see the green screen reflected on their heads.
