Episode Summary

Little Yellow Book

Squidward reads SpongeBob's diary to everyone in the Krusty Krab.

  • Congratulations, you made us hate one of the few likable characters left.

    Seriously writers, Squidward is the spirit animal of every college kid you can imagine, but this episode just makes us hate him. I know he's done stuff like this before, but he learned his lesson. Here he never says sorry and never even shows it. I can understand Squidward's pain from just about everything that has happened to him in recent years. I mean to this day there are so many Squidward torture porns that you'd feel sorry for him. However, what he did was cruel and inexcusable in this episode. You're reading someone's secrets in front of everyone, and humiliating the same person in the process. In the end you take his other diary and you don't even regret it. What happened after April fools day, or Christmas who? You said sorry, and tried to make up for it as much as possible Squidward. But what really baffles me is the law in bikini bottom. He's denied a taxi, almost arrested and is left homeless, all for reading a diary? Since when is spilling secrets against the law? I'm not defending Squidward's actions in any way shape or form but come on. In addition, the people of Bikini bottom are hypocrites, they read that diary too. Now this isn't the worst episode, but it is up there as one of the worst.moreless
  • Almost as bad as Spongebob Your'e Fired. ALMOST!

    Hated this episode alot. Squidward was a complete jerk.

    1 out of 10.
  • It's official, SpongeBob will NEVER be the same!

    This episode was ***ed Squidward reading SB's diary? WHAT THE F*** WRITERS! That has to be one of the worst plots on this show, it's dumb and not even enough to cover 11 minutes. Speaking of the bad plot, that's all this episode is! just Squidward reading ScumBob's (Thank you Pieguy for the term) diary. Nothing else happened. And then the second half is just Squidward getting pelted by everyone. NEWSFLASH WRITERS! DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN SQUIDWARD TORTURE FOR ONE F***ING SEASON! I mean seriously, since when does reading someone's diary make you worse than murdering someone? (I'm looking at you, Demolution Doofus!) Especially since THEY read the diary. The new writers just think it's funny to blame Squidward solely on EVERYTHING! Well, to you writers, NO IT'S NOT! This episode is a disgrace.moreless
  • Okay Squidward was an asshole sure, but this was probably one of my favorite episodes regardless.

    I'm still failing this episode, but this is one of my guilty pleasures. With the trite Spongebob had done in episodes like One Coarse Meal, A Pal for Gary and Boating Buddies, he kind of DESERVES an episode solely around torturing him now. Sure we had episodes like Stuck in the Wringer and Krabby Kronicle but here's the thing. Patrick and Mr. Krabs were torturing him. Patrick's stupidity was flanderized beyond reasoning and Mr. Krabs is a selfish asshole that cares more about money than the lives of those he used to love. Squidward though... I feel so sorry for this guy, I wouldn't give a damn if he got Spongebob killed. The ENTIRE episode was fucking satisfying to see Spongebob be tormented by those incredibly stupid secrets and while Squidward faces cruel and unusual punishment for just reading someone's diary, he STILL wins! Even if the Bikini Bottomites face no consequences, I still say they lose in the end for being wrongfully pissed off so yeah. ROCK THE FUCK ON, SQUIDWARD!!

    Seriously. This is like my 3rd favorite episode behind Band Geeks and Chocolate with Nuts. And that says a fucking lot.moreless
  • What a cruel episode!

    I though this show had finally been resurrected with episodes like Plankton's Pet, but look! They're at it again making Squidward a mean old jack@$$ and SpongeBob a brain-dead butt monkey! And the stuff Squidward made SpongeBob do was stupid and senseless! Seriously, WHY would he have to TAKE OFF HIS CLOTHES when hearing the Bikini Bottom National Anthem! Or SQUAWK LIKE A CHICKEN because Mr. Krabs was wearing a plaid suit! Really, the writers have LOST IT! I also agree with PIGGYDOOM about the spatula being named Fifi. I don't think the writers of this episode saw All That Glitters either. And kirbybeamer64 mentioned how Squidward felt sorry for SpongeBob in Christmas Who? and Pizza Delivery, but obviously the writers didn't see those episodes either like PIGGYDOOM mentioned. And finally, like many of the others who commented here mentioned, I didn't laugh ONCE during this terrible, mean-spirited episode! Also, in this episode, Patrick put ketchup on a DIPPER! Gross and stupid!

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 2 (originally posted last year on July 16): Nick has an upcoming show called Breadwinners that airs in 20 days. Today I found the pilot on YouTube and showed it to my family. EVERYONE HATED IT! They all said it was the worst thing they'd seen in their lives. And that includes The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure (2012), Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale (2006), and Rabbids Invasion. So I won't be surprised when Breadwinners gets a 1.9 just like Marvin Marvin here and Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale at IMDb. My Aunt said I should rate it as low as possible just to get the score down. Unfortunately, the lowest one can rate is 1, unless you are a prolific author. I have been working on that for months (6 plus months), so I can rate stuff like Marvin Marvin, Fred: The Show, and The Oogieloves a 0.0. Breadwinners is next on my "to rate 0.0 once I can" list.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 18: Breadwinners premiered yesterday. I have reviewed it. It's bad but not as bad as Sanjay and Craig.moreless
