When Patrick solves the problem Sandy gave him, he puts in new numbers, but in the next scene, it changes back to the original numbers.
When SpongeBob squirts bubble soap in Patrick's eyes, he feels no pain. Yet in "Krabby Land," when SpongeBob puts it in his eyes, he screams in pain.
When Patrick turned away after looking at Plankton through the microscope, Plankton was smaller then he really his. He was so small we could barely see him.
Patrick addresses SpongeBob as Robert.
This is the first time that Patrick uses professional words.
This is the first time that Patrick wore glasses.
When SpongeBob and Patrick were looking in the book at pictures, Patrick's flowers on his pants were blue instead of purple.
SpongeBob pointed to the wrong spot when he showed Patrick where his head fell. The real spot was closer to the cliff, and no rocks were around it.
The specimen that Patrick had been studying under his microscope was Plankton.
SpongeBob: Hey, Patrick, whatcha doing?
Patrick: Just studying this amazing subspecies.
Plankton: I'll show you subspecies!
Sandy: Well, Pat, the new you gets an A+.
Patrick: Why, thank you, Sandra. I find your intellect rather stimulating as well.
Sandy: Oh, really? Well, thanks. Well, Patrick, what do you think about this problem?
Patrick: You simply change the literal term to a coefficient and the menuin will achieve the desired quotient. Even the simplest of mammals can figure it out with a little thought.
Sandy: What do you mean by that, Patrick?
Patrick: I'm merely suggesting you lack the ability to solve remedial equations.
Sandy: Are you suggesting I'm dumb?!
Patrick: I'd use a more sophisticated word like "impaired".
Sandy: I think you'd better leave!
Patrick: I was only trying to help. (starts to leave)
Sandy: I don't need your kind of help, Mr. Know-It-All! I LIKED YOU BETTER WHEN YOU WERE A BARNACLE HEAD!!
SpongeBob: Patrick, you're kidnapping me?
SpongeBob: Oh, yeah!
Patrick: Oh, absolutely!
SpongeBob: What's the difference between a jellyfish and a guitar?
Patrick: You can't strum a jellyfish.
SpongeBob: Hey, Patrick, let's have some fun!
Patrick: You mean run some statistics, or observe phenomenon, or render a hypothesis for said phenomenon.
Sandy: (To Patrick) I liked you better when you were a barnacle head!
Patrick: Danger!!! (smashes through sign) CLIFF!!!
Patrick: Knowledge can never replace friendship, I prefer to be an idiot!
