    • SpongeBob: Just goes to show ya, Patrick. You can't trust anyone. Patrick: Yep. (SpongeBob and Patrick grab their guns) SpongeBob: (pumping his gun) So, you were an alien all the time. And you didn't even tell me. Patrick: I didn't even know. SpongeBob: Yeah? Well, I got you now. Patrick: Oh contray, it's not you that's got me. It's... (shoots himself) Me that's got me.

    • Fish: This is ridiculous!

    Notes (22)

    • In "Sandy's Rocket," SpongeBob breaks the fourth wall when he was walking on the rocket's walls; he is walking fast on the TV screen.

    • "Squeaky Boots" can be found on the Game Boy Advance Video Cartridge Nicktoons Collection: Volume 3.

    • Squeaky Boots is the first episode where Mr. Krabs' cheapness contributes to the plot (the reason he gave SpongeBob the boots was because Pearl hated them since he bought them because they were cheap).

    • This is the first episode that Derek Drymon wasn't a writer for.

    • This is the first time Sandy makes a rocket.

    Trivia (17)

    • The scene when Mr. Krabs pulls up the Krusty Krab to retrieve the boots is a direct reference to Edgar Allen Poe's story "The Tell-Tale Heart." This parodies the final scene of the story when the main character pulls up the floorboards to his house to stop the beating of a corpse's heart and says "Dissemble no more! I admit the deed! Tear up the planks! Here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!"

    • In "Sandy's Rocket," when SpongeBob and Patrick first experienced no gravity, a book was one of the objects that floated. The book's title was "2001" which is possibly an indication reference to the 1968 science fiction novel/film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    • At the end of "Squeaky Boots" when we see Mr. Krabs leaving with Pearl, he must've forgotten that Squidward is also on vacation, thus leaving SpongeBob alone at the Krusty Krab.

    • If the rocket crashed into Bikini Bottom and the tip was smashed into the ground, how could SpongeBob and Patrick take off again?

    • In "Squeaky Boots," towards the beginning, in Mr. Krabs' house on the table, there is cake. After it shows the table again, the cake disappeared.

    Allusions (5)

    • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups The scene where SpongeBob says, "You got your toothpaste in my peanut butter!" is a reference to the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup commercials where one man says, "You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!" and the second man replies, "No, you got your peanut butter in my chocolate!"

    • 2001: A Space Odyssey SpongeBob runs around the sides of Sandy's rocket in exactly the way Frank Poole runs around the centrifuge in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Later, when Patrick and SpongeBob are weightless in the rocket, a slow waltz, a la The Blue Danube, plays.

    • Mr. Krabs: SpongeBoy, me Bob! Krabs is referring to SpongeBob's original name, SpongeBoy. When Stephen Hillenburg (the show's creator) learned that the name SpongeBoy was copyrighted, he changed the sponge's name to SpongeBob.

    • Mr. Krabs: I took the boots! They're here, under the floorboard! Like in Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" where the guy admits he killed the old man after he hid him under the floorboard.

    • SpongeBob: And those mysterious crop circles that pop up in kelp fields overnight. This is a reference to crop circles, which is when elaborate shapes are created in wheat fields which were thought to be made by aliens.
