  • An awful title goes here?

    6.0
    Grandma's Kisses was kind of dull and cruel in one scene.

    6/10

    Squidville was also a little dull, BREAD

    6.3/10
  • memories...

    9.5
    two of my favorite episodes. i hate sqidward 1% more in gma's kisses but respect him more in squidville.
  • Both superb episodes. I liked Squidville a tad better.

    9.0
    Grandma's Kisses: This episode was superb imo. My huge problem that made my score a little lower is that the customer (as well as Squidward) laughing at SpongeBob because of the kiss mark he had. That was really stupid for those guys. The parts that I laughed were SpongeBob trying to eat a cookie, Patrick's imagination of being man, Patrick acting as a baby, and the last part (before those guys at the Krusty Krab show up again). Overall a superb episode. 9/10



    Squidville: This episode was better than Grandma's Kisses. Unlike that episode, this one does not have an annoying character at all. My score is lower because it was a little repetitive when Squidward was having his life at Squidville (not sure. I thought it was Tentacles Acres ), Other than that, I enjoyed this episode. My favorite parts were the reef blowers part (SpongeBob and then Squidward), Squidward watching some channel then Patrick changes it cause he hates it (funniest part ever in this episode), SpongeBob calling Squidward (SB speaks weird), the cake, and Squidward getting chased. Overall a superb episode. 9.5/10moreless

  • great

    8.0
    What I liked (Grandma's Kisses)- Spongebob whining and crying when his Grandma treats Patrick like a baby, and Spongebob like an adult. Probably the only memorable part of this episode.



    What I liked (Squidville)- Patrick asking the fire hydrant if it was Squidward, the ending to the episode, Squidward going crazy, amongst other things.



    Neither is a great episode but both have parts that are OK, and as such, my final grade is somewhere in the low B, high C rangemoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (23)

    • When SpongeBob is reading the book, in the beginning he starts at the front of the book, but at the next frame of him he's halfway through.

    • In "Squidville," how did Squidward change so fast when he entered the dance academy?

    • This is the second appearance of the reef blower. Coincidentally, it's also the second time SpongeBob bothered Squidward with it.

    • In the beginning of "Squidville," when Squidward is walking down the street, the houses have numbers on them. Later, when everybody is chasing him down the street, the houses don't!

    • 5 different forms of the same squid in purple shirt appear in the same scene.

    • This is the second time Squidward misses Spongebob. The first time was in SB129.

    • When Squidward wants to enter Squidville, the guard askes "Are you NOW or have you ever been a sponge?" Why did he ask if he's a sponge now if when he can see SB and Patrick through a camera at the entrance?

    • On the back of the Complete Second Season DVD, they spell Squidville as "Squidsville." Just an added "S" but it's still kind of funny.

    • Near the end when Spongebob is leaving his grand-mom's to go to work (he's feeling really sad). He slowly exits while the camera switches between Spongebob and Patrick with Bobby's grand-mom. Pay attention to the door, in one scene Spongebob is outside but his hand is inside (animation slip-up), and the knob is next to the door-hinges.

    • When Squidward walks to his bed in his new home, he wears bunny slippers. But when he climbs into bed, the slippers are gone!

    • When SpongeBob is standing in his flood of tears, look at his reflection. It's mouth is wide open but the real SpongeBob's mouth is just his teeth showing!

    • The intercom guy says can I help you even though Squidward doesn't press the button.

      EDIT: They had a camera in the office

    • How can bread be canned?


      EDIT: Canned bread is a real product, sold in many U.S. grocery stores.

    • Patrick bites the edge of his arm and yells "OW! MY LITTLE FINGER!" He doesn't have fingers.

    • When Patrick is sucking up the cookies like a vacuum cleaner, a cookie rolls toward SpongeBob. He whistles, and look VERY closely at SpongeBob's left hand (our right). He has no watch on his hand. Then, if you are STILL looking closely, a watch pops out of nowhere onto his hand!

    • Grandma Squarepants gives Spongebob office supplies. Doesn't she know he's a frycook?!

    • When Spongebob opens the book it has only a page sticking out with the cover at the other side. But when it's shown up close, it shows two pages.

    • Since when spongeBob going to work in the afternoon?

    • Not only is Patrick not on the couch at the end, but the couch also shrinks!

    • In "Squidville" when Spongebob says, "But you just ate three orders of fried oyster skins" he has no eyelashes! It's crazy!

    • After Spongebob stops crying Grandma Squarepants pulls a plug that drains the tear water. It should have took the ocean water with it!!

    • When Squidward parks his bike next to the store, he goes inside, and when he goes outside, his bike is GONE.

    • At the end of Grandmas Kisses wheres Patrick?

  • QUOTES (30)

    • SpongeBob: Hey, look! It's Squidward! (hugs a Squidward look-a-like) Squidward! We've missed you!
      Squid: Get off me! I'm not Squidward.
      (short pause)
      Patrick: Are you Squidward now?

    • Patrick: This is it! What are you going to tell Grandma?
      SpongeBob: I'm a grown-up!
      Patrick: No "ifs" or "buts" about it!
      SpongeBob: A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!
      Patrick: And then you get behind her and I'll push!
      SpongeBob: Patrick, we never said that.
      Patrick: ...Oh yeah, right.

    • SpongeBob: What wonders await me today? Fresh baked cookies? Storytime? A sweater with love in every stitch? Aw, what am I waiting for?! (runs eagerly to his grandmother's house) Grandma! Grandma! Grandma!
      (Grandma steps out of her house and welcomes SpongeBob)
      Grandma: SpongeBob!
      (SpongeBob throws himself into her arms and they share a long hug)
      SpongeBob: Hi, Grandma!

    • Guard: Hello, can I help you?
      Patrick: Can I get a large number one?
      SpongeBob: But you just ate three orders of fried oyster skins.
      Patrick breathing into speaker): I love fried oyster skins.
      Guard: We are sorry, but your kind isn't allowed here! He's not leaving Orville. (sniffs Patrick's breath) Fried oyster skins!! (faints)
      Patrick: I guess we gotta order inside.

    • Squidward: We might as well re-name this town Squidward's Paradise! Or perhaps too much paradise.

    • Patrick: Now, puff out your chest!
      (SpongeBob puffs out his Chest)
      Patrick: Good, now say "Tax Exemption"!
      SpongeBob: Tax Exemption.
      Patrick: Good, now acquire a taste for Freeform Jazz!
      (Freeform Jazz music plays in the background as SpongeBob & Patrick try to acquire a taste for it)

    • Patrick: Being grown up is boring, I love being a baby.

    • Grandma SquarePants: No matter how grown up you get, you'll always be my baby.

    • Patrick: You know how grandma's are, they love babies.

    • SpongeBob: I've been publicly humiliated for the last time.
      Patrick: I'm sorry that happened to you, SpongeBob, you're the most adult person I know.
      SpongeBob: Thanks, Patrick.

    • SpongeBob: Mmmm... Grandma's cookies.

    • SpongeBob: We haven't improved Squidward's day yet.

    • SpongeBob: Oh, poor Patrick. I almost feel sorry for you, trapped in the awkward phase of diaper daze, not knowing the rich rewards of being a grown up.
      Grandma SquarePants: More cookies!
      Patrick: Rewards, huh?
      SpongeBob: Well, yeah, there is uhh...

    • Spongebob: There is nothing bad about getting kisses from your grandma!
      Guy: NO!, especially when you're a big baby who wears diapers!
      (Crowd starts to laugh)
      Guy: Uh... and, sucks his thumb... and plays with dolls... and wears pajamas with feet in them and... uh... carries his uh, blankie around and,
      Crowd: Alright already!

    • (Squidward is sucking a cricket stick, the squid who holds it, falls down)
      Squidward: (laughing) Looks like when it comes to having fun, you don't have a leg to stand on!
      Female Squid: Hey, that's not funny.
      Male Squid: Yeah!
      Other Male Squid: What's going on here?!
      Female Squid: It's that guy. He's playing with a reefblower!
      Male Squid: Playing with a reef blower? That's the most childish thing I ever heard of.
      Squidward: But it's fun!
      Male Squid: (Laughs) How could you possibly have fun while playing with one of those over-sized hairdryers?
      Squidward: Like this! (Sucks the male squid's clarinet)
      Male Squid: Aaah, Give it back please!(Rejects the clarinet right into the squid's face).

    • (After SpongeBob and Patrick sucks Squidward's window)
      Squidward: What's going on out here?
      SpongeBob: We're playing with our new reef blowers!
      Squidward: Playing with a reef blower? That is the most childish thing I ever heard of!
      SpongeBob: But it's fun!
      Squidward: Fun? How could playing with one of those over-sized hairdryers possibly be fun?
      Patrick: Like this! (Sucks Squidward's window, Squidward's nose gets stuck in the wall.)

    • SPONGEBOB: Hey Patrick, guess what I've-- (surprised that Patrick, too, has a package) (opens his package, revealing a reef blower)
      PATRICK: (opens his package, containing a plant)
      SPONGEBOB: (laughing) I'm sorry Patrick. I thought you-- (surprised yet again that Patrick is holding a reef blower)
      PATRICK: Hey! You got the same reef blower as mine!

    • Fish: I've heard better come-backs from a turkey sandwich. Get a life.
      Squidward: This is even better than I expected.

    • Spongebob: Squidward, you're steaming! You're like a steamed vegetable, only smarter.
      Squidward: Put my windows back!
      Spongebob: No problem Squidward, we're on your side.
      (Spongebob and Patrick reject the windows from the reef blower and Squidward's house blows up after the windows hit it).
      Squidward: Spongebob, this is the final straw. I am going to move so far away that I will be able to brag about it. I would (Rock hit's him on the head). I would rather tear out my brain stem, carry it into the nearest four-way intersection and skip rope with it, than go on living where I do now.

    • SpongeBob: You know what Patrick, your right.
      Patrick: Have I ever not been right? (shows picture of SpongeBob on a rocket and Patrick is lighting it while giving a thumbs up, Spongebob with a funnel in his mouth and Patrick is stuffing a melon in; Spongebob and Patrick in bikini breafs - Patrick is smiling and Spongebob is frowning)
      Spongebob: Yes.

    • SpongeBob: I DON'T WANNA GROW UP!!!!
      I want cookies!
      I want milky!
      I want a sweater with love in the stitches!
      I want to wear diadies!
      I want to ride in my wagon!
      I want to cuddle wuddle with Mr. Stuffykins!
      I want to rocky-rocky on MY seahorsey!
      And I want kissy-kissy on MY boo-boo!! (Wailing)

    • Squidward: This city needs to be destroyed! Or at least painted a different color.

    • (Squidward runs past Spongebob and Patrick)
      SpongeBob: Hey! That looked like Squidward!
      (The rest of Tentacle Acres runs by Spongebob and Patrick)
      SpongeBob: Hey! That looked like Squidward also, in angry mob form!

    • Squidward: Cheer up, SpongeBob. Besides, I know somebody who still likes you.
      SpongeBob: You do?
      Squidward: Yeah. Your grandma! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    • Squidward: I'd hate to burst your bubble, SpongeBob, but they are laughing AT YOU, not WITH YOU.

    • Squidward: Hmm, I bet they won't have ... Wow! They have it!!
      Canned bread! This town is great!

    • SpongeBob: Uh, Grandma, would you mind not telling this to the guys at the Krusty Krab.
      Grandma: Why, of course!
      (SpongeBob and Grandma hug as 'the guys at the Krusty Krab' are watching from the window)
      Customers & Squidward: (burst out laughing while peaking through the window) HA HA AHHA AHH AHAH HAHA!

    • SpongeBob: I'm sorry, grandmother, but the kissing has to stop.
      Patrick: Tell it like it is, SpongeBob.

    • SpongeBob: (talking about Squidward, who's acting nuts) Well, we know one thing, it sure isn't that guy!!

    • Patrick: (talking to a fire hydrant) Are you Squidward? That's okay, take your time.

  • NOTES (17)

  • ALLUSIONS (7)

    • "Canned Bread" may possibly be a reference to "Powdered Toast in a Can" from Ren and Stimpy.

    • Whenever Squidward laughs, his nose makes an up-and-down move. The squid couple playing Croquet laughed at Squidward and their heads made a similar up-and-down move. It seems that every squid has its own identical laugh.

    • When Spongebob is going to work, Grandma Sponge tucks and puts Patrick to sleep on the couch. When Spongebob comes back in and starts to cry alot at the end of his crying Patrick is no longer on the couch.

    • Squidward finds canned bread in the shop and on the can it says "canned bread, the best thing since sliced bread"-
      ''the best thing since sliced bread'' is a well known saying

    • When Squidward is going through each day getting sadder and sadder, it is like in a Dexter's Laboratory episode where Dexter "fires" Dee Dee. First he is happy to not deal with her destroying things, but then it goes through a similar sequence where his smile gradually fades. he eventually "re-hires" Dee Dee.

    • Element: Full of Health
      The store, "Full of Health", is a reference to a store called Orchard. The same menus and it looked just like it. And Orchard is indeed full of health, too.

    • Spongebob: A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
      This is Tommy's quote except it's "a baby's gotta do what a baby's gotta do!"
      Tommy from Rugrats.
