Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Both funny episodes

    Naughty Nautical Neighbors: I thought this episode was very funny. I don't like the idea of SpongeBob and Patrick fighting but its funny-ness moe than made up for it. I liked the part were Squidward almost died while choking on a fork. He deserved that because he made SpongeBob and Patrick fight in the first place. He also died in the ending, which was funny because he really deserved it

    Grade 8/10 B

    Boating School: I liked this episode, but some parts were boring. One of the funniest moments in this episode was the "Patrick SquarePants" episode. The ending was also funny when SpongeBob was sulking when he cheated. What makes it more funnier is when SpongeBob was sulking, rock music was playing. I love it when people sulk while rock music is playing.

    Grade: 8/10 B

    Final Grade: 8/10 Bmoreless
  • Great and classic paring!

    "Naught Nautical Neighbors" was good. I liked the idea of Squidward trying to break up SpongeBob and Patrick's friendship and both of them trying to be his friend. I liked SpongeBob's song about Squidward and the part when Squidward invited the duo to dinner. I liked how SpongeBob and Patrick became friends again in the end and how Squidward got his karma. Something, however, felt missing. Overall this episode gets a 7 out of 10.

    "Boating School" is such a classic and is Mrs. Puff's first appearance. I liked the idea of Patrick trying to help SpongeBob pass his driving test by giving him all the answers. I also lagged when Patrick wore SpongeBob's pants and when Mrs. Puff said in a deep voice, "Oh SpongeBob, whyyy?!"

    While this episode is a classic, I can't help but feel bad for SpongeBob and Mrs. Puff. Poor SpongeBob just can't pass his boating test and poor Mrs. Puff gets injured, twice. Even so, I still think this episode deserves a ten out of ten.

    Overall these episodes are worth watching and I give them all together an 8 out of ten.moreless

  • Excellent episodes!

    Naughty Nautical Neighbors: This episode is great. Squidward is quite sinister in the beginning ("If I had a dollar for every brain you don't have I'd have ONE And SpongeBob and Patrick's feud is so silly ("Yellow is ugly!"). The scene where SpongeBob is alone and he counts his fingers ("The gang's all and cries out is just cute. This episode has too many classic scenes to quote. 9/10

    Boating School: This episode is GENIUS! The writers hit gold with the whole concept and the cheating involved in this episode. Patrick is the star in this too ("Ha, CHEATING!" *laughs maniacally*). 9.8/10moreless
  • Both were equally good episodes.

    Naughty Nautical Neighbors: Squidward's plan to break SpongeBob and Patrick's friendship works, but then both of them won't leave him alone because both of them are Squidward's friend. The funniest parts of this episode was when Patrick asks Squidward for soda when his glass is already full and Patrick saving Squidward. 9/10

    Boating School: SpongeBob has failed his driving test too many times, so he cheats by putting a walkie talkie in his head with Patrick giving him the answers. I thought the montage of SpongeBob driving and Patrick laugh when he finds out Spongebob is cheating. Both of these episodes were equally funny.moreless
