    No free rides: I laughed/liked-SpongeBob crashing the narrator, SpongeBob trying to sharp his pencil, SpongeBob getting a license,SpongeBob driving while crashing in other people, SpongeBob falling in the cake, the chase scene (Mrs. Puff as a ski mask), and the ending. Overall this was not my favorite season 2 episode, so the overall score have to be 9/10.



    I'm Your Biggest Fanatic: I laughed/liked Patrick touching everything (yet the police man told him not to) including Lenny, SpongeBob in line being impressed by Kevin, the fish going "Wah wah wah wah", and a couple more,. The only things that I didn't like was Kevin treating SpongeBob and some parts need more funny moments. Overall a great episode. 8.5/10moreless

    No Free Rides:

    To avoid another year with SpongeBob in her Mrs. Puff passes him with bogus extra credit and lets him have his license, but soon realizes that the consequences are beyond bad. When SpongeBob receives a new boat-mobile from his parents, Mrs. Puff attempts to steal it, and SpongeBob will stop at nothing to stop her. At least the ending was good.



    1.9/10



    I'm Your Biggest Fanatic:

    While at a jellyfishing fan convention, SpongeBob meets Kevin C. Cucumber, who gives him a chance to see if he can join his club, The Jellyspotters. However, SpongeBob is unaware that Kevin is only trying to make a fool out of him, but soon discovers the truth after the club attacks him with a robotic queen jellyfish. This was better than the first one but still bad!

    What I liked (No Free Rides)- the fake extra credit, "Educational television?! OH NO!", Spongebob using the pepper spray in his eyes, amongst other things.



    What I liked (I'm Your Biggest Fanatic)- Kevin being stung repeatedly, the King Jellyfish, the ending to the episode…



    Neither episode is really anything special, I do not think, but they both do have their moments of humor, so B or so is my final grade

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (24)

    • Mrs. Puff wanted SpongeBob to be gone, but later, in "The Bully," SpongeBob asked Mrs. Puff that if he could be in another class and Mrs. Puff asked "Why?" meaning that she cared about SpongeBob, but she wanted him gone in this episode.

    • In "No Free Rides," Mrs. Puff says that SpongeBob has to write down three more words in his extra credit, the three words are obviously, "how to drive."

    • In "No Free Rides," if the news broadcast in Mrs. Puff's daydream was live, why did the anchorfish say not to use that take when SpongeBob ran over him? Live news doesn't use takes.

    • When SpongeBob gets excited about becoming a Jellyspotter, he shakes and jumps around. In the process, watch closely, and you'll see him drop a jar.

    • The Accident billboard sign changes to spanish.

    • Response to the third goof: Maybe he had two pairs.

    • Reply to:"At the beginning of "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic," Spongebob and Patrick saw the "only guy ever to be stung by a queen jellyfish and live." But in the episode "Jellyfishing," Squidward was stung by a queen jellyfish, and he lived!"

    • Response to above goof: The guy wasn't stung by a queen jellyfish. He was stung by Big Barney the jellyfish, or something like that.

    • When the police are watching the boat driving wildly around as a result of Mrs. Puff and Spongebob fighting, they are on a hill watching them from above. In the next scene, the police boat is directly facing a cliff, which Spongebob's boat then drives off of. It would have been impossible to see the boat, the policefish would have been staring at a cliff. Then, in the next scene, the policefish are screaming at the sight of the boat flying at them from midair, as if the boat had driven off a cliff which then completely disappeared. THEN, Spongebob's boat landed ON TOP of them, instead of straight into them as from the policefish's perspective. The animators really need to PLAN AHEAD.

    • At the beginning of "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic," Spongebob and Patrick saw the "only guy ever to be stung by a queen jellyfish and live." But in the episode "Jellyfishing," Squidward was stung by a queen jellyfish, and he lived!

    • In the scene when Sponge is wrecking things in his car he hits some people singing "Happy Birthday" I wonder who's birthday it was because there all singing it!

    • response to the king jellyfish goof: Kevin and the anchovies later shut the door on the queen jellyfish robot. Thank you.

    • When Spongebob was in bed, his bed was facing the other way.

    • When SpongeBob's Patents drove him home from Mrs. Puff's, and after they put SpongeBob to bed, how did they get back to their home?

    • Shouldn't the King Jellyfish have noticed that Kevin and the anchovies were in the Queen Jellyfish robot when he first saw it?

    • When Mrs. Puff says, "Extra credit!" she is inflated and doesn't talk in that low voice she always has when she's inflated.

    • In "No Free Rides" if the test was over, how could Spongebob go from -224 points to +6 points?

    • In "I'm your biggest fanatic" when Spongebob begins to show Kevin up, the Anchovies say "Wah!Wah! Wah!". The first time the sounds are made, none of their mouths are moving!

    • In "No Free Rides", SpongeBob gives his socks to his boatmobile and then he jumps on the car and you can see his socks still on his feet.

    • In "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic", SpongeBob punches himself and asked Kevin if he wanted it to hurt and the "pain glove " had 4 fingers and a thumb and SpongeBob himself has 3 fingers and a thumb.

    • In "No Free Rides" when Spongebob is pretending to be a radio he said, "You're not getting away with my CAR!", but it's a boatmobile!

    • Did you notice there's a lot of ads for Kevins Sting Ointmant

    • This isn't necessarily a goof, but the billboard about Kevin's sting ointment that the Jellyspotters' Queen Jellyfish slammed into must've been really strong, since though it fell over, the billboard itself must have been really strong, since it is undamaged.

    • Every place Keven gets stung, it grows larger. After his whole body is stung, every body part is normal size except for one of his hands which was never stung.

    • Mrs. Puff: So all you have to do to earn your extra credit and pass my class and never have to come anywhere near this school again is write a 10-word sentence on what you've learned in Boating School.

    • (SpongeBob announces he'll be coming back to Boating School for another year. Mrs. Puff thinks to herself whilst also sweating out of nervousness.)
      Mrs. Puff: (Internally) Oh, Neptune! Another year with him. Barnacles! Dirty Barnacles! I've gotta do something to save myself! There's only one way out... A teacher's ace in the hole.
      (Mrs. Puff is no longer speaking internally to herself.)
      Mrs. Puff: Extra credit!!

    • Narrator: Here we are again at the Bikini Bottom Boating School. Today is once again the day of SpongeBob's Boating School exam, but, more importantly, this is the last test for the year, and if SpongeBob does not pass this one, it means another whole year of Boating School!!!
      (SpongeBob crashes into the camera.)

    • SpongeBob: The warden says she'll let you go early! If you do her a favor.

    • SpongeBob: I'll do anything for you! Anything!
      Kevin: Why don't you punch yourself in the face? (SB punches himself in the face with a boxing-glove)
      Kevin: Doesn't that hurt you?!?

    • SpongeBob: Hi Kevin!
      Kevin: Hi. What's your question?

      Kevin: You're too kind. SECURITY!

    • Spongebob(to Mrs. Puff): Who are you and what are you doing in my boat, and why are you wearing that ski-mask? BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT SKIING! Oh my gosh, I know who you are!
      Mrs. Puff: No you don't, you don't know who I am.
      Spongebob: Yes I do, I know that you're a boat jacker! I never thought I had to use this pepper spray. (Spongebob sprays pepper spray into his own eyes) AHH, SOMEBODY HELP ME, SOMEBODY HELP ME!

    • Spongebob: Wha' happened?
      Mrs. Puff: Oh, nothing Spongebob, you just struck another pedestrian. (writes on clipboard) Minus 20 more points…
      Spongebob: How many does that leave me with?
      Mrs. Puff: Negative 224.
      Spongebob: How many more minutes left in the test?
      Mrs. Puff: The test is over.
      Spongebob: That's enough time, I can make up those points! (Spongebob is about to pull into reverse)
      Mrs. Puff: No, wait, Spongebob, you didn't hear me! It's too late! SpongeBob...
      (The boat rams into reverse and Mrs. Puff screams. Mrs. Puff pleads Spongebob to stop as Spongebob knocks over a whole row of cones, knocks through a brick wall and crashes in front of the school's main building. The dust clears.)
      Spongebob: OK, Mrs. Puff, what's my final score?
      Mrs. Puff: 6.
      Spongebob: Whoo! And how many do I need to pass?
      Mrs. Puff: 6...
      Spongebob: (raising arms slowly) Oooooooooooo….
      Mrs. Puff: …hundred.
      SpongeBob: Wha-

    • (Anchovies ripping off Kevin's thing on top of his head)
      SpongeBob: WOW! I didn't know this was a hat!
      Kevin: (crying) It wasn't!

    • Radio: And now back to K-R-U-D, home of your most personal YOU WON'T GET AWAY WITH STEALING MY CAR! Hits.
      (SpongeBob comes out of the radio)

    • Jellyspotter: Wa-wa-waa.
      Kevin: Will you cut that out?!

    • Mrs. Puff: What have I done? Everyone will know I let him slide through school. I'll have to move to a new city, start a new Boating School with a new name!
