** There's another: Though the episode was so terrible that this troper, who denies Spongebob ever [[JumpingTheShark jumped the shark]] can't deny this, who wouldn't want to help a pet not feel lonely?

* Several evangelical Christian groups in America criticised the show for [[FreudWasRight advocating homosexuality]] after a video featuring [=SpongeBob=] was supported by the ''We Are Family Foundation'' ([[{{WAFF}} coincidence]],) who supports gay rights. Although [[WordOfGod Stephen J. Hillenburg]] said [=SpongeBob=] was asexual, John H. Thomas, the United Church of Christ's general minister and president, said the United Church would welcome [=SpongeBob=] into their ministry:

* Ernest Borgnine, who has voiced Mermaid Man since season one, passed away in 2012. What did Nick do? They ran a completely un-advertised Mermaid Man marathon, with every episode from the original "Mermaid Man" to the final "Mermaid Man Begins," in his honor.
** Additionally, the second Spongebob movie, Sponge Out of Water had the superhero gimmick as a homage to Borgnine's work as Mermaid Man. At the end of the credits, it even reads, "In memory of Ernest Borgnine."
* After David Bowie's death, Nickelodeon put up a clip of his guest appearance in "Atlantis Squarepantis" on the front of the ''Spongebob'' homepage.

*** Squidward's little smile when Spongebob hugs him is heart-meltingly sweet.

* The majority of "Dying For Pie," in which Squidward accidentally gives SpongeBob a pie-shaped bomb, which will explode at sunset, so Squidward tries to give SpongeBob the best day of his life.
**The ending scene in particular, in which [[spoiler:Squidward watched the sun set with SpongeBob]] is very emotional, despite the fact that [[spoiler: SpongeBob doesn't really end up dying, as he hadn't eaten the pie yet]].

** Near the beginning of the episode, when Squidward throws down his hat and storms out of the restaurant, Spongebob follows him, almost completely drops the goofy/happy act, and tries to persuade him as seriously as he can to come back to work- in a lower, solemn voice we don't hear him use often. A very genuine moment.

** It's pretty telling that, when Squidward believes that he and Spongebob are going to be killed, he actually picks up Spongebob and hugs him close, as if attempting to protect him. [[BigBrotherInstinct And this is coming from the guy who normally hates when Spongebob hugs him]].

* A small moment from "Yeti Krabs," when Spongebob says that he and Squidward "are as close as brothers!" A cute statement, and possibly a callback to his "We're like brothers... only closer" line from the season 3 episode "Can You Spare A Dime."



* In "The Sewers of Bikini Bottom", Squidward ends up joining [=SpongeBob=] in flushing stuff down the toilet and clearly has fun. It's actually quite touching to see Squidward join in on [=SpongeBob=]'s antics instead of berating him for them.

*** SpongeBob gives Squidward a wooden clarinet, because he didn't want him to feel left out. Squidward even sheds a tear afterwards.

* Remember in "Rule of Dumb" when Patrick goes mad with power, and he has that altercation with his reflection, and he realizes what he's done, and tries so desperately to get the crown away? Doubles with Tear Jerker once you think of what a fucking retarded prick he's become.
