    • List of jobs Patrick did at the Krusty Krab and why he failed in all of them: Deliver food to the customer: Patrick kept eating the food that was for the customer. Answer the telephone: Patrick hung up on everyone that called because he thought they meant him when they asked "Is this the Krusty Krab?". Sweep the floor: Patrick swept the floor with the broom on the wrong side.

    • The French narrator introduces both "Big Pink Loser" and "Bubble Buddy."

    • "Big Pink Loser" is one of fewest episodes in which the French narrator speaks at the beginning and at the end of an episode.

    • This is the first time SpongeBob makes a bubble out of a person.

    • What Bubble Buddy does to SpongeBob's friends: Fish: Kept waiting in line for the bathroom. Squidward: His service was made fun of. Mr. Krab: Had bubble money for tips. Scooter: He died from the high tides. Larry and the other exercisers: Been called ''fat.'' Pearl: Her flipper was washed.

    Trivia (35)

    • In "Big Pink Loser," SpongeBob said that he had to pay Mr. Krabs $100 an hour when he started at the Krusty Krab, but back in "Help Wanted" he didn't have to pay Mr. Krabs anything.

    • When Larry and the others were chewing on celery sticks, a fish with white hair and a yellow fish does it. But she was never dancing with them. Also, Larry says that Bubble Buddy called them fat. But SpongeBob only said to shake their "bubble butts". He never called them fat.

    • When Patrick was choosing jobs in "Big Pink Loser," you can see one of his choices was a firemen. There is no need for Patrick or anyone to put out fires because they're underwater.

    • When SpongeBob reads the trophy, he reads, "Outstanding Achievement in Achievement- SpongeBob SquarePants". However, when we see the gold plaque he read, it only says SpongeBob SquarePants.

    • Bubble Buddy is one of the drawable characters on the video game Drawn To Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition.

    • Patrick: (shouting into the phone) No, this is Patrick!

      This scene has turned into a meme. The meme will feature a screenshot of Patrick from when he shouts, accompanied by a screenshot of something above, with captions. An example would be, "This is Sparta!" followed by, "No, this is Patrick!"

    • Spongebob: Hey everybody, it's Lief Ericsson Day! Hinga dinga durgin! The real Leif Erikson Day was declared by George W. Bush to be on October 9th 2002. He asked that all Americans celebrate this day appropriately to commemorate him. However, the holiday had already been declared on the same date 38 years earlier by President Lyndon Johnson.

    • None: None
      There really is a Leif Erikson Day. It's celebrated mainly in Norway and Eastern Canada.
