Larry the Lobster
If Neptune was looking for the greatest fry cook, it might have been Jim (from "The Original Fry cook") that could pull the spatula from the grease, since it was shown that he is better than SpongeBob in "The Original Frycook."
How come it's hard that Larry can't pull the spatula from the grease if SpongeBob can pull it so easy? Only the chosen frycook can wield/pull the spatula from the grease, which Patrick read.
This episode is similar to The Powerpuff Girls episode "Paste Makes Waste".
Neptune changes sizes throughout the episode "Neptune's Spatula". In one scene he was roughly the size of Larry the Lobster, in another he was big enough to hold SpongeBob in his fist, yet he is able to stand at the Krusty Krab grill and fry burgers in a later scene.
In "Neptune's Spatula", why is SpongeBob working as a cashier? That's supposed to be Squidward's job.
The episode "Neptune's Spatula" was originally titled "The Spatula & the Stove" before being changed.
When King Neptune says "Behold Atlantis," it shows a man in the shower. That man is Tom Kenny, the man who does SpongeBob's voice.
King Neptune also appears in the Spongebob Squarepants movie. But they are two different King Neptunes.
In "Fools in April", when Squidward sees the calendar, he surely would have realised when, or if, he turned the calendar. Unless it's some kind of automatic calendar.
After Spongebob tricks the lady by telling her the spoon was a fork, she still walks away with the spoon.
When the man asked for his order, we can see SpongeBob's back and he doesn't have the smiling face on his back.
Why didn't Spongebob just make 10 patties a second like in "Help Wanted" to beat Neptune? Because he didn't have all that stuff Neptune did. He wasn't a "god" until Neptune turned him into one.
After Tom drank the drink that Spongebob put 1 ice cube in, he dropped the glass when he asked Spongebob what he did it to. After that the glass was back in Tom's hand
When Spongebob was getting hurt by Squidward's "prank, his KK hat flew off. If you look real close you can see that his KK hat was still on when he "flew by"
The grill should again be at the pick-up window.
In some scenes in "Neptune's Spatula", Patrick's face appears to be on his rearend, but in other scenes on his stomach.
Why didn't Spongebob just make 10 patties a second like in "Help Wanted" to beat Neptune?
Spongebob's doorknob thingy comes back after awhile.
When Squidward gives the bottle to SpongeBob with the cork, it disappears when SpongeBob is holding it.
In Neptune's Spatula when Spongebob says he has two left hands, if you look at his hands in the next scene he has a left and a right.
At the end when Spongebob called Neptune "Trainee" the grill was on the LEFT instead of in front.
When Squidward is hearing people in his head, the fish who says "April Fools, jerk." is different the fish who actually said it.
In "Neptune's Spatula" when Patrick takes the picture of Spongebob with the pulled out spatula, it's not the same picture as when he showed Neptune. When Patrick took the picture, there was no sparkle, but when Patrick showed Neptune the picture, there was a sparkle.
Squidward: SpongeBob, I just wanted to say that I'm sorr-yyyyy. (sticks out tongue while he talks)
Squidward: I'm trying to say that I'm... (makes donkey noises)
Squidward: I'm just trying to say that I'm... (head explodes) There's got to be an easier way to do this.
Squidward: Just send my last check to the P.O. box, Mr. Krabs.
Patrick: He feels bad after you made him cry like that.
Neptune: You there, crustacean?
Larry: Who, me?
Neptune: You have the physique of Atlas.
Larry: Thanks,I work out.
Neptune: (chuckles, then fiercely) Make poses with me! You pulled the spatula from the grease.
Larry: Nope, that was SpongeBob.
Neptune: Fools! Have you no taste buds? There's nothing wrong with these, they're delicious! (picks up Krabby Patty and sniffs it)
Fish: Too chicken to eat his own burger!
Fish 2: Why don't you eat it?
Everyone: Eat it, eat it, eat it!
Neptune: Okay, mine aren't any good.
Neptune: You will be tested with... a challenge!
Patrick: Bring it on! SpongeBob can handle any- (gets zapped by Neptune) Ouch!
Neptune: Your friend's arrogance will cost you dearly. There will be two challenges.
Patrick: (chuckles) Only two?! What are two challenges to someone like SpongeBo- (gets zapped by Neptune again)
Neptune: (with finger smoking) Three challenges!
Patrick: (laughs again) Three challenges are nothing! Might as well be... FIVE HUNDRED CHALLENGES!
Neptune: Enough! (zaps Patrick again)
Patrick: (shown as a pile of ash) Let's settle for one.
Neptune: Besides, there are certain... uh, qualities a royal fry cook must have.
Neptune: The royal fry cook must be, uh, left-handed!
SpongeBob: Actually, I have two.
Neptune: (snaps his fingers) The royal fry cook must have red underwear!
(SpongeBob reveals that he is wearing red underwear)
Neptune: No, blue!
(SpongeBob shows blue underwear as well)
Neptune: Oooooooo... The royal fry cook's wallet contains...
(SpongeBob pulls out his wallet)
Neptune: His big toes are... (SpongeBob lifts his shoe)
Neptune: He has 6, uh...
Patrick: He is the new royal fry cook, and you-
Neptune: Silence! (zaps Patrick)
Patrick: Is it hot in here or what? (falls over)
Spongebob: April Fools! (the man grabs Sponge)
Man: What did you do to my drink?
Spongebob: I… (giggles) I… (giggles)
Man: YOU WHAT?!
Spongebob: You asked for a couple of ice cubes in your drink, and I only put in one!
Squidward: Why are you wearing that hat? (Patrick takes off the hat)
Patrick: Hmm, I don't know.
Spongebob: Squidward! Is all that true?
Squidward: Yes, Spongebob. Yes, it's all true.
Spongebob: Even the part about the lima beans and the car chase?
Spongebob: I will accept your challenge… if you fix my friend.
Neptune: Ah yes, the round one.
Spongebob: Behold the ultimate cooking utensil, the golden spatula!
Patrick: Oh, he's in the house. He looked pretty down..
Squidward: Look Spongebob, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I admit it, I'm sorry! I like your loud foghorn in the morning, and your high-pitched giggling at night! I LIKE YOU! I like all your friends: Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and all the other people I'm forced to be in contact with! Oh I'm SO sorry!!!!!
Neptune: Is so good, I think I'll try it a second time. (spits out patty)
Mr. Krabs: (Sobbing)
SpongeBob: It's okay, Mr. Krabs.
Mr. Krabs: I lost me bet!
Squidward: April Fools, you little sausage!
Neptune: The accursed stove has burnt my finger! Feel thine own wrath, stove! Hahahahaha!
Spongebob: Hey, what did I say before, TRAINEE?
Neptune: (sighs) Good patties are made with love, not magic.
Fish: (to Squidward) April Fools, JERK!!!
SpongeBob: (pours all the drinks) Hmm, I don't think I can drink all these.... APRIL FOOLS! (holds up a mirror) To me... DAAAhhhaaahaa!
Patrick: Don't give up on your dream, SpongeBob. They'd say, "Patrick, you'll have your head in the clouds. You'll never get anywhere in life." But just look at me now! Go get 'em, tiger!
Squidward's Mom: YOU STINK!
Customer: Can you tell me where the forks are?
SpongeBob: They're right here lady.
Customer: Um, but this is a spoon.
