The Thing: I don't think I laughed once with this episode. It was just needless Squidward abuse again and again and again. SpongeBob and Patrick were so annoying in this episode it killed me. Bah humbug.
Hocus Pocus: A decent episode, I guess. It was pretty funny when SpongeBob thought the ice cream was Squidward. Then, there was all the things they tried to make Squidward come back, even going to the company where SpongeBob got his magic set from. It was a pretty good episode, too bad it had to be paired with "The Thing". Otherwisae, it would have probably gotten an 8 instead of a 4.5.
