** The main difference between Plankton and Mr. Krabs is that the latter has always been established as a villain, even if he's [[StupidEvil utterly incompetent]]. Mr. Krabs is supposed to be a one of the 'heroes' of the show, so to speak, and in the earlier episodes, he was fairly reasonable with his greed being a flaw more than his {{Flanderization}} defining trait. The problem, as a result, is that the writers intended for the audience to forgive [[DesignatedHero Mr. Krabs ]] while Plankton ultimately got punished in the end of the movie. Spongebob was a false hope in this episode; seeming to empathize with Plankton with Mr. Krabs's fake fear of mimes. Spongebob being the audience's main insight on the series, as such, was the writer's way of telling us [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop 'You should support these actions']]

* In the episode with Pretty Patties, Spongebob and Mr. Krabs trade reasturants, but Spongebob never really gave the Krusty Krab back, does this mean that Spongebob is actually the owner of the KK?
** Most simply, this is explained by NegativeContinuity, the show doesn't have a set timeline except for the episodes that establish main characters [Plankton and Sandy, for example, were given their own debut episodes and were kept as a result]. If you want from a plot standpoint; Mr. Krabs could have simply convinced him offscreen after the episode.

** Spongebob is, by nature, kind of a spineless doormat, both in pre-movie (Walking Small) and post-movie (Treats!) episodes. It's a reoccurring character flaw that's been established in multiple episodes. He's overly nice and he lets people take advantage of him. "You just let people step all over you! You're just like stairs!" to quote from Plankton in "Walking Small." Spongebob didn't "evict" Squidward until he was so distressed and worn-out by the situation that he completely snapped altogether.

* In the episode "Funny Pants," Spongebob believes that his laugh box is broken because Squidward persuaded him to think so. Squidward lied to Spongebob just to get him to shut up for a while. But that doesn't really explain A) Spongebob's pained spasms earlier in the episode (just before Squidward fed him the "laugh box" lie,) and B) the wheezy/deflating balloon sound that Spongebob makes just before he says "I lost my laugh." So... what happened to him? Were those symptoms just cheats in the narrative?

* So in the episode "Can You Spare A Dime," couldn't Spongebob just have Squidward evicted from his house instead of letting Squidward constantly take advantage of him after Spongebob showing Squidward numerous times that he needed to get a job?

* In "I Was A Teenage Gary", all Gary needed to feel better was water. Why didn't Squidward think of this when he forgot to feed the snail?

***That brain was in the sand, so that may be the reason it didn't grow into a whole new body. Though on the part about the hand, it probably regenerates into a body, and then the brain develops.
