All That Glitters / Wishing You Well

Aired Saturday 10:00 AM Jun 02, 2006 on Nickelodeon



  • Trivia

    • How come Plankton isn't big in the next episode that he is in?

    • In "Hooky" and "Pranks-a-Lot," SpongeBob seemed to be embarrassed about being naked in public, but in "All That Glitters" he didn't.

    • SpongeBob takes out Patrick's dentures when he is explaining to Mr. Krabs how much money they made, but when Patrick says to Mr. Krabs, "And I fell on my head", you can see Patrick's teeth.

    • After SpongeBob sold all his stuff for le spatala, how did he get everything back if Mr. Krabs does not pay SpongeBob anyway?

    • SpongeBob had to sell his loose change, coins in 5 piggy banks, Gary's diamond, his house, and his clothes to get the Le Spatula.

    • In "All That Glitters," SpongeBob had to sell all of his stuff to get Le Spatula. The fish that has Le Spatula was interested in SpongeBob's pants and SpongeBob gave him his pants. How come he doesn't have his underwear, shoes, and socks when the fish only wanted his pants?

    • When Plankton wishes to be taller, he throws in a silver coin, and when Mrs. Puff wishes for a new boat, she throws in a silver coin as well, later, SpongeBob says that they both threw pennies. First of all, pennies are dark, not silver, and second of all, when Mr. Krabs throws his penny in, it's actually colored correctly.

    • If the wishing well was just built, why is there moss already growing in it?

    • Goof: When Squidward looks down the well while SpongeBob and Patrick are there, his sleeves are missing.

  • Quotes

    • Squidward: Could you not stand so close? You're making me claustrophobic.
      Patrick: What does claustrophobic mean?
      SpongeBob: It means he's afraid of Santa Claus.
      Squidward: No, it doesn't.
      Patrick: Ho, ho, ho! (giggles)
      SpongeBob: Stop it, Patrick, you're scaring him!

    • Mr. Krabs: (trying to prove there is no magic) I wish I was steamed, and served with a side of melted butter.
      SpongeBob: Mr. Krabs, no!
      Mr. Krabs: Well, where is your magic now?

    • Squidward: Patrick, get off of me!
      Patrick: Sorry, Squidward, but there is no Santa Claus here!
      Squidward: Patrick!

    • SpongeBob: Patrick, this is a wishing well. Just throw in a coin and make a wish.
      Patrick: Okay, magical talking trash can (pulls out a coin) I wish SpongeBob were here to see this (Patrick tries to throw it, but doesn't let go and falls into the well)

    • SpongeBob: You can't rush perfection.
      Squidward: I am not rushing perfection, I am rushing you!

    • Mr. Krabs: (walks up to a pay phone to check if there is any money in it but there is none) Nothing. Oh well. (hears something in the distance) That sounds like a quarter crying for help. (a quarter rolls in front of Mr. Krabs) Come to papa!
      Mom Fish: Hold it right there, buddy. My son just dropped that quarter.
      Mr. Krabs: Yeah? Well, that kid looks pretty shifty to me. How do I know he didn't steal it? (lady hits him in the face with her purse) Hey! That little brat is throwing perfectly good money away! Oh, so if I can't have it, no one... (gets hit in the face with the purse again) I hope he throws all your retirement money down a hole. (walks over to the well) Poor little quarter. What the...? This well is full of money! Don't worry, little fellas, I'll save ya! (tries to climb in the well) Oh, it's no use. Me poop deck's too big.

    • (Patrick throws garbage in the well)
      SpongeBob: Hey!
      Patrick: Huh!?
      SpongeBob: Patrick!?
      Patrick: Who said that!?
      SpongeBob: Patrick, this is a wishing well, just throw in a quarter and make a wish.
      Patrick: Whatever you say, "Magical Talking Trashcan"! (pulls out quarter) I wish SpongeBob was here to see this! (throws quarter, but doesn't let go and falls in the well)
      SpongeBob: PATRICK...
      Patrick: Oh, hi, SpongeBob, my wish came true!
      SpongeBob: You're supossed to let go of the quarter.
      Patrick: Ya, but I got my wish!

    • Le Spatula: I will not dare such slop as zis, how you say, Krabby Patty! I am designed for ze utmost een culinary cuisine, no less!

      Le Spatula: Have a nice life of mediocrity, fry cooke! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    • SpongeBob: Why do I have to go down the well, Mr. Krabs?
      Mr. Krabs: To collect the money!!

    • Doctor: SpongeBob, I'm sorry to say this but, you may want to start thinking about buying a new spatula.
      SpongeBob: Oh, no!!! Thank you, doctor.
      Doctor: Actually, I'm not a doctor, I'm an actor.

    • Mrs. Puff: I wish I had a hot rod and was a hot ridin' mama!

    • THE MAGIC HAS GONE MISSING SONG (sung by SpongeBob)

      Oh, the magic has gone has gone missing,
      and everyone's still wishing.
      But their dreams have fallen flat upon the ground.
      You'll find magic under rubble,
      So Patrick, grab a shovel,
      and here is where the magic can be found.
      We're at the bottom of a well,
      but man won't it be swell,
      when everyone's wishes all come true

    • (Patrick & Squidward start fighting in the well)
      SpongeBob: Patrick! Squidward! You can't fight down here! (has tears in his eyes) This is a magical place.

    • SpongeBob: Patrick! We struck Magic!
      Patrick: Is that good?
      SpongeBob: Next to being a frycook, it's the best thing I've ever done.
      Patrick: It's the only thing I've ever done!

    • Sandy: I sure wish I had a fancy telescope that could work underwater.

    • Squidward: This job stinks, but at least I'm not out digging ditches!
      Mr. Krabs: Alright, here's the plan to dig the new wishing well, me boys!

    • SpongeBob: The true measure of a spatula is by his actions, not by how many chromey things he has.

    • New Spatula: Le Spatula 3000 at your service!

    • Store Clerk: No touchy, touch Le Spatula. It is very expensive. Of course, if you purchase it, you may hold it.

    • Customer: Uh, one Monster Krabby Patty please.
      Squidward: No one's ordered a Monster Patty in ages. SpongeBob, a Monster Krabby Patty.
      SpongeBob: Did you say a - a Monster Krabby Patty?
