SpongeBob SquarePants

Season 3 Episode 3

The Bully / Just One Bite

Aired Saturday 10:00 AM Oct 05, 2001 on Nickelodeon



  • Trivia

    • This is the first time Squidward has called a customer a "Barnacle Head".

    • When SpongeBob is staring in horror at Squidward (who's about to bury the "horrible" Krabby Patty), the anchor on his Krusty Krab hat is gone.

    • When the fish puts the Krabby Patty in the bin, he has a fat belly, yet how can this be? Krabby Patties go right to your THIGHS, don't they?

    • "Just One Bite" was aired before "The Bully" on the edited version, while on the uncut version, "Just One Bite" aired after "The Bully."

    • In the deleted scene, the door was open (it probably was opened by SpongeBob), but in "Krabs a la Mode," Mr. Krabs always closed the door and Mr. Krabs kept the key, then why did they need the security?, Well, they could break the windows

    • In "Just One Bite," Squidward says that he has NEVER tried a Krabby Patty, but in the Season 2 episode "Your Shoe's Untied," millions of patties flew into his mouth.

    • Watch Closely: In the sequence where Squidward is dreaming with the Krabby Patty, the scenes of meeting the patty, having dinner, the wedding, and being old together, the Krabby Patty doesn't have cheese, but the scene of them having a son, both the mother patty and the son have cheese.

    • How could there be gas underwater? Considering that it would just pollute the sea and everything, it shouldn't have ignited when the match dropped on Squidward.

    • In "Just One Bite," before that one scene was deleted when Squidward is covered in gasoline, a robot arm comes from nowhere and drops the lighted match. Where did that arm come from?

    • In this episode, Mrs. Puff was happy to see SpongeBob.

    • Running Gag: When SpongeBob is running away from Flatts and says that Flatts is going to kick his butt to the people in the street and points to Flatts, the people think that the old man is the one that SpongeBob is talking about and they beat up the old man instead. This happens twice in the episode.

    • In "The Bully," when SpongeBob runs into the door to Mrs. Puff's room, there is a window on the door. But later when Mrs. Puff and SpongeBob were talking, the window on the door disappears.

    • If you listen closely in the background while SpongeBob and Flatts are talking, you can hear Mrs. Puff saying "blah blah blah red light blah blah blah green light blah blah speed."

    • There is a deleted scene where SpongeBob and Patrick are playing leap frog while Flatts is "beating him up." It's unknown why.

    • In "Just One Bite," when Squidward asks how long SpongeBob will continue to bug him about eating the Krabby Patty, SpongeBob handcuffs Squidward and himself together, then in the next moment, the handcuffs are gone.

    • In "The Bully," when SpongeBob says to Mrs. Puff, "Can I be in a different class?" she answers "Why?" which might mean she actually cares about him. But why wouldn't she be happy that SpongeBob wanted to be in a different class if she wanted him gone in the first place, first hinted in "No Free Rides" where Mrs. Puff said, "Okay SpongeBob, all you have to do to get your driver's license, and never have to come around here again - is write a ten word sentence on what you've learned."

    • When Squidward tried to get into the Krusty Krab, he got caught by the booby traps, but then we see SpongeBob is there as well, so how come SpongeBob can get in, but not Squidward, and aren't they both employees of the Krusty Krab, which means Squidward should know the way in as well.

    • Mrs. Puff said "There will be no butt kicking in this class." but at the end of the episode, she said to SpongeBob "I'm going to kick your butt!"

    • When SpongeBob meets Flatts' dad, the car steering wheel is on the right side of the car, but all other cars in Bikini Bottom have steering wheels on the left side.

    • If you notice, the bucket of gas only appeared IN THIS EPISODE. It was never shown in any other episode, not even SB-129, where Squidward barged right in.

    • Flats also appeared in "Sandy's Rocket."

    • Two goofs: How can the 2nd security bucket of gas be ignited without the flame? Because the match wasn't shown on the next security shot. And if Squidward was set on fire due to the gas, shouldn't the KK be on fire, too?

    • Around the time Flatts entered the class room, the students in the classroom were showed at their desks, with SpongeBob in the back. After Flatts was introduced by Mrs. Puff, she told the class to put on their "Happy Faces" for him. The class was then showed at the same angle as before, but in SpongeBob's place was an ordinary fish.

    • When Spongebob is talking to Patrick on the phone, Patrick says that Flats is his old college buddy. Now what is a person that already graduated from college doing in boating school? Shouldnt he already have a license?

    • Reply to this goof:they have a Patty Vault, why does Spongebob need to make Krabby Patties? Because Spongebob said they go right to your thighs and then you blow up. So I wouldn't eat one of those.
      The patties only go to your thighs and you blow up if you eat as many as Squidward did. Spongebob even says in the episode, "How many are you eating?" So in the Patty Vault, those are normal patties. And Spongebob makes Krabby Patties so they never run out.

    • The fact that the Krusty Krab has a patty vault contradicts what Spongebob says about Krabby Patties and how they must be eaten right away. The patty's in the patty vault must serve some other purpose but I doubt that...

    • He said that a patty that special(triple krabby supreme)should be eaten fresh. He didn't say anything about ordinary krabby patties being eaten fresh.

    • How could the bucket fall when the door opened. The bucket didn't touch the door!

    • Squidward was burned so much, he was mostly black. But he's just fine when he's at the Patty Vault.

    • How could Squidward have had striped grillmarks on his face, given that the grill is perfectly flat? Did SpongeBob flip his head with a spatula?

    • When Squidward digs up the Krabby Patty, what happened to the buns?

    • If they have a Patty Vault, why does Spongebob need to make Krabby Patties?

    • If I remember correctly, the first time this episode was shown, I believe "Just One Bite" came before "The Bully".

    • There is an edit in "Just one bite." It was noted in the note section, but here I'll make it more clear. So, in the episode, when squidward says, "there it is!" in the edited version, you can already see the patty vault in the customer windom, and the camera zooms into the window and once it stops zooming, squidward is already in the room, no alarm system at all. It probably was too violent.

    • The boating school looks more like a normal school than a community like school also it looks bigger on the inside then it does in the onside

    • When Spongebob is in a faint spotlight, the telephone goes back with Spongebob. When he freaks out and runs out of the room, the phone is in its normal place.
      ~Tommy TV

    • In "Rock Bottom" the yellow fish drove the bus. But here he's shown in Boating School!

    • The fish sitting next to Spongebob in Boating School was a lady that also appeared in "Sandy, Spongebob And The Worm". The thing is, in that ep, she said she had children...she has children but she can't drive??

    • Patrick goes to college, but in the nicktoons summer splash he said he didn't go to school.

    • When the class is cheering at the end after Flats faints, look in the front row in the middle there is an old lady!

    • In "Just One Bite" the fat fish can't eat his Krabby Patty because he's "so goshdarn full". Wait! Doesn't the Krusty Krab have takeout?

    • In this episode, SpongeBob sais that it is incorrect to have a Krabby Patty without a customer eating it. How come they have a patty vault full of ready made Krabby Patties?

    • How come in this episode when Flatts hit Spongebob, Spongebob didn't get hurt, but in other episodes, he gets hurt?

    • The bus stop where the old man was at switched sides. One other thing, why would the same people that beat up the old man be at the same place after Flatts woke up (5 hours to be exact)?

    • In "The Bully" when Flatts moves to let Mrs. Puff see what he drew the drawings are only behind him, but in a wide shot they almost reach the top of the blackboard.

    • In "Just One Bite" ever notice how Spongebob never goes early to "count the seasme seeds" in any other episode?

    • As a follow up to the last goof, it is proven in the episode "Patty Hype" that only Mr. Krabs has the key to the Krusty Krab. Thus Spongebob could not get in at all. (Neither could Squidward.)

    • Mrs.Puff was weirdly nice to SpongeBob in this episode.When sponge said that he may be excuse forever she let him stay
      she would let him leave.

    • In the episode "Just One Bite", when Squidward tip-toes out of his house to go to the Krusty Krab to eat a Krabby Patty unnoticed, he gets there going the opposite way to get to the Krusty Krab. In past episodes, SpongeBob goes west to get to work, but in this episode Squidward goes east. They also go east together at the start of "Krusty Towers."

    • In Just One Bite, Squidward mentions he has never had a Krabby Patty. Well, remember in Your Shoe's Untied where Squidward needs the Krabby Patty orders and Spongebob trips with the Krabby Patties and they all go into Squidward's mouth and he eats them? Your Shoe's Untied is before Just One Bite so Squidward has had Krabby Patties before.

    • When Sponge flipped the pattie out of the KK..Look at the right window on the KK theres a Help Wanted sign

    • Flatts also shows up in the episode when Spongebob is kidnapping all the "aliens" of Bikini Bottom, but Mrs. Puff said he was a new student.

    • When Spongebob was in the alley Flatts was driving a garbage truck.He's in boating school!

    • In this episode theres a "Patty Vault" It never was in any other episodes.

      : I... I... I... no... I... I... SpongeBob: And why are you so nervous? And why are you sweating so much? And why do you look so hungry? And... (realizes what's going on, and has a goofy grin on his face)
      : No, no, no, it's not what you think! Err, this is a big misunderstanding, you got to believe me! I... uh... LISTEN TO ME, I AM TELLING YOU, YOU BETTER LISTEN TO ME, SPONGEBOB!!

      Squidward: Barnacle head.
      Customer: Pardon me?
      Squidward: You forgot your mayonnaise.
      Customer: Thanks!

    • Squidward: What do I have to do? Eat one out of the garbage?
      Fat Fish: I wish I could eat this, but I'm so darn full, oh, well. (throws the Krabby Patty in the garbage)
      Squidward: I had to say garbage, but ok!

    • Squidward: Spongebob, if I were trapped at the bottom of a well for 3 years with nothing to eat but that Krabby Patty, I'd eat my own legs first! And not just the extra ones.

    • Patrick: Spongebob? You're working at Pizza Castle now?

    • Spongebob: (About the Krabby Patty) It's delicious!
      Squidward: Listen Spongebob, how long are you prepared to keep this up? (Spongebob handcuffs him and Squidward together and puts the Krabby Patty in front of Squidward's face)
      Squidward: (Takes Krabby Patty) Gimme that! When I die, you stay away from my funeral!

    • (When Flatts is ready to kick his butt)
      Spongebob: Go away Gary, I don't want you to see this! It'll be ugly.
      Gary: (goes into his shell, then comes out with a camera)

    • Spongebob: Ah. Do not cheer me on my fellow adult classmates. Flats was the real victim here. A victim of a society traveling down a violent road to nowhere. I road I call "Violence Road."

    • (Spongebob is walking in the hallway)
      Spongebob: And I'll leave Gary's water bowl to Gary, and my curtains to... Oh, Neptune, I just can't do this.
      (Payphone rings)
      Spongebob: (Answers):Death Row, next in line speaking.

    • SpongeBob (yelling while speeding away): GET OUT OF MY WAY! GET OUT OF MY WAY! CAN'T YOU SEE? HE'S GOING TO KICK MY BUTT!

    • Spongebob: Mrs. Puff could I be excused for the rest of my life?
      Mrs. Puff: Why no Spongebob. I'm in the middle of a coffee fueled sermon. You can't afford to miss this information.

    • Squidward: (Smiles after eating Krabby Patty; then Spongebob smiles; then says entrallingly) Why this Krabby Patty may be the most... (suddenly angry) horrible, putrid, poorly prepared, vile, unappetizing, disgusting excuse for a sandwich that has ever been my displeasure to have have slithered down my throat!
      Spongebob: But...
      Squidward: (drops Krabby Patty and hits it repeatedly) And I curse this Krabby Patty, and all who enjoy them to an early and well sandwich grave! (Implants grave on the ground) Get it?

    • SpongeBob: You know what we say:
      (All the customers appear)
      Customers: The only people who don't like a Krabby Patty have never tasted one!

    • Flatts: (in bandages) Wow, I'm touched. I'll have to remember that when I'm kicking your butt.
      (SpongeBob looks amazed)
      Flatts: Those flowers for me?
      SpongeBob: (runs out of hospital and screams) AAAAAH! HE'S STILL GOING TO KICK MY BUTT!
      Fish: How many times do we have to teach you this lesson, old man?
      Old Fish: I love the young people.

    • SpongeBob: (runs into Flatts' dad's car) Ow. Hey, are you Flatts' dad?
      Flatts' Dad: Why, yes, I am.
      SpongeBob: That's great! I didn't know where else to turn Patrick didn't help me and Mrs. Puff only made it worse! See, I sat next to your son in class, and he's a fine boy and all, but he's gonna kick my butt!
      Flatts: Dad, what are you doing?
      Flatts' Dad: Um, nothing, son!
      Flatts: What did I tell you about talking to strangers?
      Flatts' Dad: (scared) Now he's going to kick my butt!
      (SpongeBob flees screaming)

    • SpongeBob: Squidward, you can't eat all those patties at one time! SQUIDWARD!!
      Squidward: (sarcasm) What's gonna happen--am I gonna blow up?
      SpongeBob: No, worse--it will go right to your thighs!
      Squidward: My thighs?
      (shot of Squidward with saddlebag hips)
      SpongeBob: ... and THEN you blow up!
      (Squidward explodes)

    • SpongeBob: But it's good for you!
      Squidward: Good for you? That thing is a heart attack on a bun!
      SpongeBob: No, Squidward... I meant, good for your soul...
      (angelic background and singing)
      Squidward: Oh, puh-leeze... I have no soul!
      (hellish background and evil music)
      Demonic Voice: Bwahahahahahaaa!
      (Squidward's eyes widen, music stops short and he walks away lamely)

    • Mrs. Puff (While Sponge talks to Flats): Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...

    • SpongeBob: (in toilet) What was that? Oh no! Someone is coming! I've just got to act natural!
      (student opens up the toilet Spongebob is in, and all you see is a floating cleaning sponge)
      Student: Oh, that's nice. (leaves)
      SpongeBob: PHEW! For a second, I thought it would be...
      (Flatts walks in)
      SpongeBob: AH! Flatts! Uh, hi, sir. Kick any good butts lately? Yeah, I remember last week. I was kicking this guy's butt real good. Then he leans over to me and says, "You know? Life is like a bucket of wood shavings; except when the shavings are in a pale, then it's a pale of wood shavings." You know what I mean?
      Flatts: Wow, that story really speaks to me.
      SpongeBob: Really? What does it say?
      Flatts: It says, "Now I'm going to kick your butt twice as hard."

    • Squidward: (Arrives at the Krusty Krab at 3:00 AM; about the Krabby Patty) There it is unguarded. All I have to do is...wait it's too easy, there must be some kind of (Hears liquid dripping) security? (Looks up at the bucket on top of the door) This is a burglar alarm? A bucket of water? (Kicks the door so bucket would fall) Ha, that was too easy! (Sniffs the air) Hey, this isn't water, this is... (Eyes pop widely open) GAS! (A hand comes over, holding a lit match and drops it on the ground setting Squidward on fire; Squidward screams, then runs into the kitchen; another bucket of gas falls and gets ignited, then he screams again)

    • Spongebob: I dont want my butt kicked! There are so many things in life I havent done yet!
      Spongebob: Hold on I'll transfer your call...

    • Spongebob: I'll have to skip town and live under an assumed name. Bobpants Spongesquare. Yeah that's good. Grow a beard then shave it off and live happily ever after.
      Flats: Yeah. Except you forgot the part where I kick your butt!

    • SpongeBob: Excuse me, Miss.
      Student: Don't make me have to report you again...
      SpongeBob: (laughs) Okay, does the quiz pencil go next to the notebook, and the homework pencil go with the essay pencil? Or does the essay pencil go alone on this side, and the homework pencil and quiz pencil go over here? OR-
      Student: I think it goes shoved up your-
      SpongeBob: OH, I've got it. The homework pencil goes here with the quiz pencil, and the essay pencil goes here, facing towards the notebook, just in case I have to write an essay!

    • Doctor: This boy saved your life. He preformed CPR for five hours straight.
      SpongeBob: They said you'd be fine after the first five minutes, but I just wanted to be sure.
      Flatts: (in bandages) Wow, I'm touched. I'll have to remember that when I'm kicking your butt.

    • SpongeBob: I haven't even said 3 words to the guy!
      SpongeBob: Hi! I'm SpongeBob!
      (end flashback)
      SpongeBob: (counting how many words he said to Flatts) 1.... 2... OH, NO!

    • Squidward: Try one of those radioactive slugdeballs you called food? Next I suppose you want me to go square dancing with Patrick!
      SpongeBob: Sorry, Patrick.
      Patrick: Awwwwww.

    • Mrs. Puff: Flatts just wants to play some games, or maybe even some sports.
      SpongeBob: I have diarrhea...

    • SpongeBob: AHHH! He's going to kick my butt!
      Old Man: Hi, there!
      Fish: (to old man) So, you like kicking butts, old man? Well, we'll show you!

    • SpongeBob: Gary, I'm taking his blows like I'm some sort of spongy material. You know what that means... I GET TO GO TO WORK TOMORROW!

    • Spongebob: But it doesn't make any sense. The Krabby Patty is an absolute good. Nobody is immune to it's tasty charms.
      : Nobody but me!
      : Are you sure?
      : Does THIS look unsure to you? (Hard to describe but hilariously funny shot of Squidward's hard to describe but hilariously funny grumpy face)
      : No.

    • SpongeBob: Hi! I'm SpongeBob!
      Flatts: I'm gonna kick your butt!

    • Patrick: No, they're not closed. I know you want olives.
      SpongeBob: Patrick... ya there?
      Patrick: Oh, sorry, SpongeBob! I was talking to my old community college buddy, Flatts.

    • Ms. Puff: SpongeBob, How dare you beat up a new student! I'm going to kick your butt!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Squidward's eating the Krabby Patties in the patty vault, one of the ways he eats it is a reference to Pac-Man.

    • Patrick: Hello...? Is this Pizza Castle?

      Pizza Castle is a reference to Pizza Hut.

    • Squidward: If I didn't want it out there, what makes you think I would find it more appealing IN HERE?

      This sounds like something out of the Dr. Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham.

    • Just One Bite: Plot
      This whole story line was based on Dr.Suess' "Green Eggs and Ham." SpongeBob would be Sam-I-Am, Squidward would be the guy who won't eat green eggs & ham, and the Krabby Patty would be the green eggs and ham.
