    Allusions (5)

    • Squidward: Don't you mean there are only seven. This a reference to the Seven dirty words in the monologue done by the late comedian George Carlin. The monologue was, of course, titled "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television".

    • Squidward (yelling at Mr. Moneybags): Good day to you sir! This is a reference to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) when Willy Wonka yells at Grandpa Joe after he announces that Charlie has lost the contest.

    • Mr. Krabs: You two should be ashamed, making an old lady faint with your sailor talk. This could likely be a reference Dorothy Gale's line, "You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Frightening him like that when he came to you for help!" from The Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy and her friends were at the Wizard's palace and the Wizard frightened the Lion, and the lion fainted. The same thing sort of happened here, where SpongeBob and Patrick were saying all the bad things that Mr. Krabs said, and Mama Krabs fainted. Mr. Krabs' line here is similar to Dorothy's line after the Lion fainted.

    • SpongeBob: I think he'll give us the 40 lashes. The Bible makes two references to "40 lashes," as shown below. While Jesus was indeed whipped (Matthew 27:26; Mark 15:15; John 19:1), the record doesn't state how many times. One of the laws God gave the people through Moses was that when a person was being judged and they were guilty they "must not give him more than forty lashes. If he is flogged more than that, your brother will be degraded in your eyes." - Deuteronomy 25:3. 2 Corinthians 11:24: "From the Jews five times I [the apostle Paul] received forty stripes minus one." (39 were given to ensure that the limit of 40 was not exceeded.)

    • The game that Spongebob and Patrick play is Eels and Esclators. It's similar to the game Chutes and Ladders.
