* Sandy's apparent flanderization into just liking science starts to make a little more sense when you remember how it started: In "Chimps Ahoy", Sandy was stressing out that her bosses were coming over to review her work, causing her to realize that she hadn't made enough inventions and work tirelessly for a week in a desperate effort to impress them before giving up and packing her things. It's only by sheer luck that Sandy manages to impress them and keep her job. It's likely that this episode was a wake up call for Sandy to put a little more focus and effort into science, because though it's a passion and hobby of hers, it's also her ''job''.

** He had enough money the whole time, it's just that he was trying so hard to find it that he kept smacking the bus driver around with his balloon and was told to sit down already, and later kicked off with no regrets.



** He was perhaps referring to the way it happens in the Krusty Krab. As for the second point; There's something called food dye. And Spongebob never *officially* quit the Krusty Krab in that episode; so he was getting his resources from Mr. Krabs...which would mean that Spongebob [[FridgeHorror was stealing from his boss?]]

** Plankton's specific version of chum from "Jailbreak!" is made of old socks, banana peels, used tissues, and other random garbage, nowhere near the realm of actual, dead-fish chum. It's like when a kid drinks ketchup and calls it blood.

* In "Sleepy Time," when Patrick is shown sleeping, a bit of music is playing. What song is it? "Twinkle Twinkle, Little ''Star''."
* In "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy V" (or "Superfriends," as it's also called), Mermaid Man explains that the [=IJLSA's=] [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman superpowers come from their costumes]]. Later on in "Mermaid Man Begins," we learn that this applies to him, too, since the starfish on his nose allows him to breathe underwater.

* Squidward's nasty asocial attitude makes sense when you realize he brings it almost entirely on himself; he's far too narrow minded, intellectual and egotistical to put himself on the level of anyone else he considers below him or confront his faults, and he [[LackOfEmpathy un-em pathetically]] expects everyone else to live up to unrealistic high standards that even he can't reach, which is an automatic social brick wall. This would also explain why he's such a lousy clarinet player and tacky painter; he simply refuses to take criticism or supplant his ego so he can learn from others, and his refusal to admit his flaws and learn from his mistakes also keeps him from doing any practical or rational with his art, and this is his downfall that keeps him from progressing--and it may also be because he's just doing the craft to reinforce his delusions that he's a highbrow cultured personality rather than having any genuine love or respect for the art form (consider that all of his paintings are self portraits, an immediate red flag that he's a narcissist), when a real "cultured" personality (I.e. Squilliam) is savvy enough to instantly see through his self-serving sham like the plate of glass it is, and wouldn't be caught dead hanging around an opportunistic, pseudo-intellectual bottomfeeder like him. And the reason most of Bikini Bottom treat him so poorly is because, despite not being very cultured or smart themselves, they are much more practical, street smart and level headed than he is, and they're well aware how insufferable he is and have no patience with his all talk and no show attitude. This social pariah status In turn also guarantees that Squidward won't be able to change or benefit from changing anyway, since he's already left a long lasting bad impression on everyone around him, thus reinforcing his cynicism and lack of passion. This can likewise apply to Plankton.
* In the episode "The Great Snail Race", Spongebob says to Gary that he calls him a lady to "humiliate and demean you." Cut to Sandy walking down a street and she says, "I don't know why, but I think I'll kick Spongebob's butt tomorrow." I didn't get it at first when I was younger but now I get it. Sandy somehow heard Spongebob's sexist comment and she wanted revenge.

* Plankton paintig a log cabin on the Chum Bucket in "Bucket Sweet Bucket" suddenly makes a ton of sense if you remember his background.

* In "Chimps Ahoy," one of Patrick's inventions is "another dimension," which Spongebob dismisses as just a mirror, though Patrick's "reflection" shows sentience shortly after. Ordinarily, this would seem like Patrick was a GeniusDitz and did invent a new dimension. But considering the number of "TheManInTheMirrorTalksBack" gags in the show, even if he did create a new dimension, ItsBeenDone, so it's still not a new invention.

** In one of the very newest episodes (S10, I believe) Patrick is shown to own his own boatmobile. Indicating that he STILL has his license (or has possibly had it for awhile) but prefers to just good around with Spongebob most of the time. All of these episodes actually indicate good continuity. Patrick sucks at nearly everything, but driving is definitely NOT one of them. He's like an Autistic Savant when it comes to driving.

* Mrs. Puff's psychotic behavior might not make sense at first but when you realize that her husband was made into a lamp (and one of her students keeps landing her in the hospital and prison) it [[FreudianExcuse makes good sense]]

** So is Bikini Bottom, but this is [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]]. Segregation is legal there, as seen in Sharks vs. Pods when an old man banned sharks from his movie theater. When you [[FridgeHorror think about it]], that's pretty friggin' scary.
