  • Trivia

    • The reason Sandy told Patrick that he should be arrested for impersonating a doctor is because, in reality, impersonating a doctor is illegal. To become a doctor, you have to go to college and have a medical license.

    • In Plankton's nightmare, when Plankton begins licking the Krusty Krab sign like a lollypop, he says "Lick, lick." but his mouth doesn't move at all.

    • During Mr. Krabs' dream in "Sleepy Time," it reveals that Mr. Krabs lives on Anchor Way.

    • In "Sleepy Time," Patrick was the only one who had his dream entered by SpongeBob, NOT to be mad at him. All he wanted was a quarter.

    • Why was Gary mad at SpongeBob? He didn't ruin anything in his dream. All he did was just see what's in the library and followed Gary.

    • When in SpongeBob's dream his friend's heads were floating, Patrick's head could be seen and he seems to be mad .But he wasn't mad at SpongeBob.

    • In "Sleepy Time," when all of the characters show up in SpongeBob's room, Plankton is seen. But after Sandy says "Do us all a favor, SpongeBob, and stay out of all dreams", Plankton is not seen until he jumps on the bed.

    • Mrs. Puff appears in and ruins SpongeBob's dream. However, SpongeBob does not make an appearance in her dream.

    • Why did Pearl get mad at SpongeBob for invading her dream? All he did was go in her dream and basically just asked where Mr. Krabs was. He didn't even destroy anything.

    • In "Sleepy Time," when Plankton is in the Chum Bucket, he is not wearing any pajamas, but when he is in SpongeBob's house he is wearing some.

    • In "Sleepy Time", during Gary's dream, the theme to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto in C Major, K.467 (No.21), can be heard in the background. Mozart is later alluded to in Squidward's dream.

    • After Patrick talks to Sandy and tried to cure SpongeBob, the whip pan was the pink bubbles that came out of SpongeBob.

    • In this episode Gary said that his shell is not filled with hot air. However, in Karate Island it was filled with air.

    • If you look closely on SpongeBob's driver's license, you can see that SpongeBob's birthday is on July 14th, and Mr. Krab's birthday is on November 30th, 1942.

    • In "Suds," Patrick calls Sandy for SpongeBob to tell her that she does not need to come. However, Sandy is wearing her air helmet when she speaks to Patrick through the telephone. How did she do that?

    • If SpongeBob's birthday is July 14, 1986, it means that he is 14 years old.

    • We learn that SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick's houses are all on Conch Street.

      SpongeBob: 124 Conch Street

      We know this because on SpongeBob's driver's license, it says he lives at 124 Conch Street. If Squidward and Patrick live on the same street, they too live on Conch Street.

    • This is the second time the Krusty Krab blows up. (It was also destroyed in "Employee of the Month," "Squid On Strike," "Skill Crane," and "Selling Out.")

    • When SpongeBob was in Mr. Krabs dream, after he folded up the his wallet, he was standing by the side of the boat, but when he let the money go, he was on the far side of the boat with his side to the open part of the boat.

    • A seahorse shaped like a unicorn drinks from a river in Pearl's dream.

    • Squidwards window was supposedly open, but if you look closely there was, glass on his "open" window and glass on his window door.

    • In "Suds," when Sandy is trying to get SpongeBob from Patrick, how can he roll down the hill to Bikini Bottom if he already was in Bikini Bottom, and his house should be in the opposite direction from the direction he came, and it shouldn't be up a hill.

    • When everyone first wakes up Spongebob, Pearl has no nightcap on, but immediately afterward, she does.

    • In the "Sleepy Time" episode, when Spongebob was in Mr. Krabs dream, the part when Spongebob loses Mobey Dollar, watch closely because the scene cut is kinda fast, when Mr. Krabs says to spongebob "You're Fired!" you'll notice his nose is straight not crooked.

    • On "Sleepy Time" when Spongebob was in Patrick's dream, Sponge demonstrated that he could make a million of himself in JUST DREAMS. He can do that in real life to (if he tried hard) because sea sponges can reproduce asexually and budding, as shown on "Pressure".

    • When SpongeBob opened his mouth, Sandy said to Patrick that he was sicker than ever and Patrick had a clothing pin on his nose. But Patrick doesn't have a nose. In the episode "Something Smells", when the odor just passed his face and he didn't even know it.

  • Quotes

    • Patrick: Hmm... the dirt therapy seems to be working just fine.
      Sandy: Patrick, Spongebob has to see a REAL doctor.
      Patrick: (paranoid) No he doesn't! I'm taking good care of him! Show her, Spongebob! Say "AHH"
      Spongebob: Ah... (green fumes escape his mouth, causing a landscape of coral, plants, and clams to instantly wilt and die)
      Sandy: See? He's even worse than I thought.
      Patrick: What do you mean? He's fine.

    • Patrick: Hey, Spongebob. Going skiing?
      Spongebob: I'm sick, Patrick. I'm going to the doctor.
      Patrick: What? Oh, you can't go!
      Spongebob: Why not, Patrick?
      Patrick: I know a guy who knows a guy who went to the doctor once, and the doctor's office is a horrible, horrible place!
      Spongebob: It can't be as horrible as the suds. (Ah-choo!)
      Patrick: Oh, it is, Spongebob! Well first, they make you sit in the... WAITING ROOM.
      Spongebob: Is that the horrible part, Patrick?
      Patrick: No, it gets worse. They make you read old magazines!
      Spongebob: (yelps)
      Patrick: (snaps off a piece of coral shaped like a stethoscope and puts it on his neck) Then the doctor pulls out his stethoscope!
      Spongebob: NOO!!
      Patrick: YES!! It's a device so sinister, so icy cold when it touches your bare flesh, it.. (hisses)

    • Spongebob: My fingers are too big for the buttons. Dr. Patrick, will you call Sandy for me? (he sniffles and hands the phone to Patrick)
      Patrick: Sure, patient Spongebob. (dials the phone) Hello, Sandy?
      Sandy: Hiya, Patrick.
      Patrick: I'm calling on behalf of my patient, Spongebob.
      Sandy: I'm on my way over to take him to the hospital.
      Patrick: Uh... that will no longer be required. He is in MY care as of today.
      Sandy: Well, I'm coming over to take a look. I'll be over there faster than a barefoot jackrabbit on a hot..
      Patrick: Oh yeah, yeah, the rabbit. Don't bother, Sandy! (he hangs up the phone) Spongebob, quick! Sandy's coming! We've got to make sure you're well, or she'll take you to the doctor! (he runs to the kitchen and washes his rubber gloves in the sink) Don't touch me, I'm sterile!

    • Spongebob: Oh, Gary... I don't feel like myself.
      Gary: (meows)
      Spongebob: Don't be silly, Gary. I don't get colds. I get the suds.
      Gary: (meows)
      Spongebob: No, Gary. (sniffs) If I had the suds, I'd have bubbles coming out of me. (feeling a sneeze coming on, he holds his nose. He then sneezes and inflates as pink bubbles shoot out of him, then he deflates)
      Gary: (meows)
      Spongebob: I can't get the suds, 'cause then I'll have to miss work. (he feels another sneeze and pulls his underwear over his mouth and nose and sneezes, and the bubbles emerge from the underwear)
      Gary: (meows)
      Spongebob: No, Gary. I like wearing my underwear like this. (he turns around, revealing two bubbles in the back of his underwear as if they were his butt cheeks. The two bubbles pop)
      Gary: (meows)
      Spongebob: I'm not sick. I'm going to work.

    • Spongebob: I wonder what Patrick's dreaming.
      (Patrick is stuck to the bottom of his rock, sucking his thumb, snoring)
      Spongebob: (laughs) I can't resist! (he jumps into Patrick's dream. Inside, he opens a door and everything is white with on scenery. Patrick is seen rocking back and forth on a 25-cent kiddie ride) Hey Patrick!
      Patrick: Hi Spongebob.
      Spongebob: You know Patrick, this is a dream. You can do anything you want.
      Patrick: Yup.
      Spongebob: I mean anything! Watch. I can turn into a skyscraper. (he transforms into the shape of a skyscraper) Going up! Huh?
      (he then gets annoyed at Patrick for ignoring him) I can make... (he returns his normal size and multiples a million-fold) a million of me! Eh? Eh? (the copies disappear)
      Patrick: Yup.
      Spongebob: Ah, tartar sauce. I'm going to a different dream!
      Patrick: Okay. Bye Spongebob.
      (the kiddie ride stops. Patrick reaches into his pocket and pulls out another quarter and puts it into the slot, but accidentally drops it into a sewer grate)
      Shoot, that was my last quarter. (he sits on the ride with a dull gaze)

    • Plankton: Zap! (obliterates a building near the one Spongebob is stuck to)
      Fishes: (screaming)
      Plankton: I see you. ZAP!! (he shoots a green laser out of his eye) I see you. ZAP!!
      Spongebob: Plankton! (he looses himself from the rope around his ankle)
      Plankton: I see YOU... ZAP!! (he destroys the building seconds after Spongebob escapes)
      Fishes: (screaming)
      Plankton: Oh look, it's the Krusty Krab, home of the Krabby Patty. (he steps on it) Crush!! (he picks up the sign and starts to lick it while walking away) Lick, lick...
      Spongebob: (running) This isn't a dream, this is a nightmare!
      Gary: (meows)
      Spongebob: Gary! Gary! No!!
      Gary: (meows)
      Plankton: Here kitty, kitty, kitty.
      Spongebob: Gary!! (he leaps and hugs him) I've got you, Gary!
      Plankton: Peek-a-boo, here comes my foot! (he steps on them) Nyah! Huh? (he lifts his foot and hops) Yow!!!
      Spongebob: I think he's got "the point". (laughs)

    • King: (to Squidward) Hey, I didn't command you to stop! Now play! (to SpongeBob) Tell me about the one from the man in Peru again. (laughs)

    • Mr. Krabs: Spongebob, what's holding up those patties?
      SpongeBob: (salutes weakly) Right away, sir...
      Mr. Krabs: SpongeBob, what's wrong with you? You're paler than a baby sea horse.
      Gary: (meows)
      Mr. Krabs: The suds?
      SpongeBob: Here's that patty you wanted, Mr. Krabs, sir. (SpongeBob sneezes and the patty flies at MR. Krabs and he gets covered in ingredients)
      Mr. Krabs: (wiping off his face) Alright, SpongeBob, you're too sick to work.
      SpongeBob: (his eyes bulge) No, Mr. Krabs, I'm OK. Honest.
      Mr. Krabs: No, now go home and get some rest. Nothing personal, lad. I just can't have you sneezing all over my food.
      Customers: (starts spitting out their food and run around screaming)
      Mr. Krabs: No, wait! Wait!
      (the customers run out of the Krusty Krab)

    • SpongeBob: What are you all doing in your pajamas? Are we having a slumber party?
      Squidward: No, we are not having a slumber party.
      Sandy: Do us all a favor, SpongeBob, and stay out of our dreams.
      Plankton: Take a hike.
      Squidward: Don't we get enough of you during the day?
      Gary: Meow.
      Patrick: Does anybody have a quarter?

    • Gary: (with accent) Spongebob?
      Spongebob: Gary?
      Gary: How dare you invade the sanctity of my dreams!
      Spongebob: Gary! You can talk!
      Gary: (sighs) In dreams, one is not tethered by earthly limitations.
      Spongebob: What does that mean?
      Gary: Come. (walks down the aisle with bookshelves) For ages, dreams have been thought of as windows to another realm. (picks up a book and begins to read) "Let me not mar that perfect dream by an auroral stain, but so adjust my daily night that it may come again." Emily Dickinson wrote that.
      Spongebob: Who?
      Gary: (flips a few pages in the same book) Here's one you might know. (clears throat) "There once was a man from Peru who dreamed he was eating his shoe. He woke with a fright in the middle of the night to find that his dream had come true."
      Spongebob: (laughs) Gee Gary, you sure ARE smart.
      Gary: Did you think my shell was full of hot air?
      Spongebob: Well, thanks for the info, Gary. I'm going back to my own dream now. (walks off form Gary's dream)
      Gary: Beware of your wandering eye, you little poriferan! (Spongebob jumps out of Gary's dream cloud)

    • Sandy: You'll be fine, so long as you have a parachute. (Spongebob shows his shoes to Sandy) Not a pair of shoes. A parachute. (He produces a green bird on his finger) Not a parakeet. A para... (Sandy crashes into a truckload of clam manure) medic.
      (Spongebob falls onto earth.)

    • Fish: This music touches me so. I fear my tears will stain my petticoat.

    • Mr. Krabs: I'll get you, you slippery demon!

    • Squidward: (angrily) Sponge...Bob.... (breaks clarinet in half)
      King: I came here to hear beautiful music. If I don't get my wish, it'll be your head!
      SpongeBob: (turns into clarinet, moves eyebrows suggestively)
      Squidward: (picks him up) Please, SpongeBob, no tricks... (blows into SpongeBob)
      SpongeBob: (off-key) LA LA LAAA LA LA, LA LA LAA LA LA!
      Squidward: (stops) Spongebob!
      King: (crying) Why have you stopped playing such beautiful music?

    • Sandy: Patrick, since when do you have two houses?
      Patrick: Ever since I ran out of room to put my stuff.
      Sandy: Uh huh. And why does your house have feet?
      Patrick: This is my mobile home.

    • Hans: Here's your lollipop. (gives SpongeBob a lollipop)
      Patrick: A lollipop? (pulls out bottle of bubble juice, blows bubble) Hey, doc, I got the suds, too.
      Doctor: Ah, yes, Dr. Patrick, we have a specialtreatment for you.
      Hans: (takes Patrick)
      Patrick: (giggles)
      Hans: (rubs Patrick on toilet and cactus)
      Patrick: (confused) Hey, hey, OUCH! Ahh! THIS DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT!!

    • SpongeBob: (Looking at Mr. Krabs's driver's license) You look good in a mustache, Mr. Krabs.

    • SpongeBob: You know what they say - "Curiosity salted the snail."
