Male Fish #1
The two fish who are in the first train seats didn't hold anything. But in the next scene, they're holding a neck rope and a head shredder.
When the female fish says "That's the worst SpongeBob costume I ever seen", she sounds like a male.
Gene Scallop refers Mr. Krabs as "Eugene A. Krabs", despite his middle initial being "H", not "A". (though that could have been what he said, it was just unclear)
After SpongeBob realizes that Squidward doesn't play with him he jumps up, pushing the big fridge out of the way. However, he was too weak to even lift his teddy bear weights.
In "The Krusty Sponge," when SpongeBob enters the Krusty Sponge, on the lower left, we see a customer eating a Spongey Patty.
In "The Krusty Sponge," when a little boy goes up to Squidward wearing the SpongeBob costume, Mr. Krabs called him a little girl.
The music heard when SpongeBob and Mini Squidward dance is part of Gioachino Rossini 's famous piece, The Thieving Magpie (La Gazza Ladra): Overture. This is a very popular song with other appeances in A Clockwork Orange, The Ren and Stimpy Show, and other TV shows and movies.
Squidward: Uh, Mr. Krabs? Uh, this is probably a bad time now.
Mr. Krabs: Uh, no.
Squidward: Well, there's a man out back and says you need to sign something.
Mr. Krabs: (worried) Okay, tell him I'll be right out.
Squidward: Got it, now precious go!
Mr. Krabs: And let's watch our language, Mr. Squidward.
(Squidward cries after the man takes Mini-Squid)
SpongeBob: What's the matter, actual-sized Squidward?
Squidward: My dreams are crushed, (then stops crying) but hey! At least I don't have to see that Mini-Squid ever again.
SpongeBob: Yeah, 'cause I have something better. (Holds out a puppet version of himself) Another me!
Squidward: Alright now, who has the Krabby Patty and who has the Krabby Patty. See...'cause...they're both...krabby.
SpongeBob: Oh, such a crazy day! What's next, a zombie invasion? (looks at the zombies) Ahhh! Zombies!
SpongeBob: Mr. Krabs! I can't find my spatula!
Mr. Krabs: I got it right here.
Fish: I ate this yellow patty, and now I feel sick.
Health Inspector: Let me try that. (chew and spits it out)
Boy: He hit me just because I wanted his autograph!
Mr. Krabs: Squidward! Heh, I'm sorry little girl. Of course you can have his autograph. For 5 bucks!
SpongeBob: I must say, I'm glad to have my job back.
Mr. Krabs: Yeah, I just hope that Squidward enjoys his new job.
Mr. Krabs: All's well that ends well.
Fish #1: Talk about no talent.
Fish #2: Maybe Squidward should get a size reduction surgery, so he'll dance better.
(Squidward sat on a chair)
Squidward: I`m actually starting to like this Mini Squidward. Doing my job for me, keeping SpongeBob busy.
Mini Squidward: Well, I guess this is it, SpongeBob old chum.
SpongeBob: Yeah, we had some good times. But, I guess it`s now time for you to move on.
Fish: Now that`s a good service. I`ll take a dozen of your finest patties. But don`t let that squid guy touch them, he might take the patties.
Fish: Bring that little fella over here, and let me give him a $300 tip!
Squidward: A $300 tip?!
Mini Squidward: Hello, Squidward.
Mini Squidward: Come on, everybody dance!
Mr. Krabs: I got a perfect man for that job.
(camera shifts to Squidward)
Squidward: OK, how am I gonna do this? (tries to pick up the spatula, but it slips and hits him in the head) OW! (falls back and pots hits his head) Mommy, is that you?
(Bikini Bottom News)
Bob: And now it's time for Bottom Feeding with Gene Scallop.
Gene: Thank you, Bob. This week, I visited...
Bob: You're welcome, Gene.
Gene: Um, this week I visited the Krusty Krab, a local burger joint that's second to none.
Mr. Krabs: Start using these patties, instead of those other ones.
Squidward: You mean to tell me you actually expect people to pay $1.98 for a rotten patty?!
Mr. Krabs: Squidward, you're right! This instant success must be scramblin' my brains. We'll make 'em $2.98!
Squidward: Mr. Krabs, don't you think you might be taking all of this a little too far?
Mr. Krabs: Get back to work, SpongeBob! I'll be in me SpongeBob if you SpongeBob me.
Squidward: Okay, and would you like any fries with that?
Customer: (to fish behind him) Hey, if I get some kelp fries, will you guys share 'em with me?
Fish #1: Do we know you?
Customer: (to Squidward) Two orders of fries, please.
Squidward: And two orders of--
Customer: I only said one order.
Squidward: I thought you said, "two."
Customer: Okay, I'll have two.
Squidward: Order up, SpongeBob!
Mr. Krabs: Squidward, you just drove away Gene Scallop! Don't you know our lives depend on his review?
Squidward: Mr. Krabs, the only thing my life depends on is going home at 6:00.
Mr. Krabs: Mr. Gene Scallop, come back!
