** On two occasions, [=SpongeBob=] is being kicked out of some place: the first time it was a tough-guy club and the second time it was a slumber party. Each of these times, someone who looks a lot like [=SpongeBob=] shows up. In the first instance, the bouncer tries to pull off [=SpongeBob=]'s wig (the preceding scene suggested [=SpongeBob=] to get a new haircut) which looks like black greaser hair, only to see the real [=SpongeBob=] show up in a blatantly obvious rainbow wig, and let the Mistaken for an Imposter person inside. In the second, it is a girl who wants to go to Pearl's party, but is kicked out because the partygoers are annoyed with [=SpongeBob=]. She runs off crying, and SpongeBob comments, "Whoever that was, [[HypocriticalHumor she was uuugly!]]"
