  • Trivia

    • The Krusty Plate: Although SpongeBob is an idiot, he's smart enough to build the super-cleaner machine. But maybe Sandy built it.

    • In "The Krusty Plate," SpongeBob flashes back to when he set the Krusty Krab on fire, but they're underwater.

    • How could the entire ocean fit in the tree dome?

    • In "Donut of Shame," Patrick places the donut under the left side of the carpet. But when he imagines that SpongeBob will step on it, the donut is on the right side of the carpet.

    • When Patrick thinks SpongeBob would step on the donut if he put it under the rug, it shows SpongeBob stepping on the donut and jelly splurts out. When Patrick splits the donut in half to share, there is no jelly in it at all.

    • Look Hard: When SpongeBob goes to Patrick's house, Patrick has the donut in his pants. Later, he crouches and admits he took the donut and apologizes. When he crouches, you no longer see the donut.

    • How could SpongeBob not know what fleas are, did he not mention them back in "Squirrel Jokes"?

    • In "A Flea In Her Dome", SpongeBob looks at his watch and says Sandy is coming in 1 hour, 26 minutes and 47 seconds, but after that scene, his watch is gone.

    • There is one scene in "A Flea in Her Dome" where the fleas all fly through the air. In reality, fleas are wingless and therefore can't fly.

    • When SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy used the escape hatch, they well by the door when the fleas were covering up the door. Don't you think they would have tried to escape since the fleas were on the far side of the dome?

    • In "A Flea in Her Dome", why would the fleas bite SpongeBob and Patrick if they don't have fur?

    • In "A Flea in Her Dome," Patrick climbs up the shoulders of SpongeBob and Sandy to get an apple. He got one and took a bite out of it. How could he have taken a bite out of it with out taking off his helmet? And if he did, why didn't water dump on SpongeBob and Sandy?

    • Look Hard: When Patrick takes the chain out of his mouth and is about to cough up the doughnut, the chains are seen on the plate, but when the doughnut comes out the chains disappear.

    • After the fleas bite SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy (excluding Sandy and Patrick), SpongeBob's arms and legs become swelled.

    • At first when SpongeBob and Patrick were trying to get to the door of the tree dome, the fleas blocked their way, but later when Sandy tried to get to the door, the fleas didn't do anything.

    • The first episode that Patrick has a rug.

    • In this episode, Patrick has a toilet in his house.

    • SpongeBob doesn't know what a flea is in this episode, but in "Squirrel Jokes," he says, "I guess fleas need a home, too."

    • In "A Flea in Her Dome," the cake was shaped like Texas, so how did they get 3 square-shaped pieces?

    • In "The Donut of Shame," since when does Patrick have man boobs?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Title: A Flea In Her Dome

      This is a parody of the play A Flea In Her Ear.

    • Garfield
      In 1996, a Garfield strip ran in newspapers about an angel donut and a devil donut appearing to him. This is very similar to the scene in "The Donut of Shame" when the angel/devil donuts appear to Patrick.

    • James Bond
      SpongeBob strapping the dirty plate down and describing the machine he will use on it is similar to an old James Bond movie.

    • Ghostbusters
      When SpongeBob crossed the beams in "The Krusty Plate" and it resulted in an explosion, it is a reference to the end of Ghostbusters.
