  • Quotes (26)

    • SpongeBob: I am happy here. This is my home now.

    • SpongeBob: Hello, Squidward! Oops. I mean, goodbye, Squidward! Isn't Opposite Day just...TERRIBLE?! Squidward: You know what's terrible? Having you as a neighbor! SpongeBob: Wow! That's the nicest thing anyone's said to me! Squidward: (makes his hand go down his face)

    • SpongeBob: I don't get it. I messed up my house. Which made Squidward clean my yard. But the opposite of clean is filth, but I'd normally wreck my own yard, which means Squidward's being the opposite of Squidward, which means he's SpongeBob! Aha! I understand everything now!

    • SpongeBob & Patrick: (singing Happy Birthday song) Happy Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday Cake! Happy Happy Birthday, Pin the tail on the Seahorse! Happy Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Squidward! (noisemaker blows, SpongeBob and Patrick leave) Squidward: IT'S NOT MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

    • SpongeBob: What have I done? I had a great life and friends, and I gave all of that up. (walks into his house, turns on the lights; Spongebob's friends are there) Patrick, Sandy, & Mr Krabs: Welcome home, SpongeBob. (Squidward blows the party horn)

    Notes (17)

    • This is the 1st time (out of 3) that the show length is referenced. This is also the 1st time (out of 2) that Squidward references it.

    • This episode can be found on the Game Boy Advance Video Cartridge Nicktoons Collection: Volume 2.

    • This episode marks the first time Gary says something other than meow (when he says "woof").

    • SpongeBob's seen eating a Krabby Patty for the first time. Note: If you mean from when the series started, then you're right. However, if you mean since Spongebob's birth date, it is seen in Truth or Square when baby Spongebob watches a commercial about The Krusty Krab and then he is seen eating one. This would then possibly (but very unlikely) make the Krabby Patty he eats in this episode his second.

    • "Opposite Day" won under the letter "O" of the Atlantis SquarePantis marathon.

    Trivia (13)

    • When SpongeBob puts the belt around his head, the belt buckle and the piece of belt that goes through it disappear.

    • When SpongeBob and Patrick said, "We hate you!" when it showed Squidward, the belt was in SpongeBob's pants. But when they scream, it was under his nose.

    • Since when there could be a fire at the Krusty Krab if they're underwater?

    • In "Opposite Day," when Squidward was saying, "Its not my birthday!" his mouth didn't move when he said "birthday."

    • Squidward made Opposite Day. So, at the end, when he was going after Spongebob and Patrick in the bulldozer, wouldn't that mean SpongeBob's last comment ("Don't you ever have the feeling Squidward likes us too much?") be the truth?

    • Episode's Length After SpongeBob leaves, Squidward and Sandy try to guess how much days before he comes back. Sandy guesses a week, but Squidward guesses 11 minutes. This is a reference to approximately how long an average episode is.

    • Pin The Tail On The Seahorse is a parody of the game Pin The Tail On The Donkey.

    • Patrick: (Hanging over SpongeBob on that rock/coral) Patrick does this like Michael Myers from the Halloween series.

    • Patrick: (Music plays in the backround) If I can't have you as a friend, I'm gonna make you a trophy! Crazy music like that plays when people go crazy in movies.
