** What ''really'' doesn't help is that [[spoiler:it's implied that Plankton didn't give a damn about what Mr. Krabs was feeling, and ESPECIALLY the fact that he [[KarmaHoudini surprisingly gets away scot-free.]]]]

** Not from the show itself, but shortly after Borgnine passed, there was an [[http://i584.photobucket.com/albums/ss287/Tom501_2009/tumblr_m6vtbvtmt91qc0ud3o1_400.jpg illustration]] circulating Facebook simply showing a teary Barnacle Boy at the grave of Mermaid Man. If you find it, I DARE you not to get choked up.
** Not to mention the fact that ''Sponge Out Of Water'' is dedicated to Ernest.
** Also, Pat Morita, the voice of Udon, died when his only appearance came out. Charles Nelson Reilly, the voice of the Dirty Bubble, is also deceased.

* Spongebob breaking down in tears of humiliation in "Artist Unknown" after Squidward gives him an unnecessarily harsh critique of his artwork. Can hit a little close to home to many art students in similar situations. (Doesn't hurt that the episode was written by someone who attended an art school.)

* A little one. From "Patty Hype." Mr. Krabs and Squidward make Spongebob cry by mocking his idea of "Pretty Patties-" vibrantly colored Krabby Patties- along with other ideas Spongebob has of drawing customers and making things interesting. Eventually, Spongebob actually gets angry- something we don't see him do a lot- and says, in an uncharacteristically determined way, "I KNOW this is a good idea! YOU'LL SEE!" He runs out of the restaurant to embark on a solo entrepreneurship. A little later, he starts crying again, having lost confidence. "Maybe Mr. Krabs was right...maybe my idea IS dumb! *sob!*"
* In "Born Again Krabs", after it looks like Mr. Krabs has died of food poisoning, Squidward finds Mr. Krabs' nosehair trimmer and uses it.
--> '''Spongebob''': You shouldn't go through Mr. Krabs' belongings, Squidward. *sobbing* HE WOULDN'T LIKE IT!

Maybe I should just go through Mr. Krabs' belongings, Squidward. *sobbing* HE WOULDN'T LIKE IT!back home and hide!" It's PlayedForLaughs, but his sobbing sounds so ''broken'' that it's hard not to feel a pang of sympathy for him there.

After spending all day (and night, presumably) lost in the wilderness, [=SpongeBob=] doggedly keeps the pizza through tornadoes and starvation so that the customer can get the order he wants. But when they get there, the customer believes he ordered a drink, and rejects his entire order in anger. The actual stinger comes when the guy who ordered it says

* In "The Chaperone" when SpongeBob ruins Pearl's prom and he runs into the bathroom sobbing. Poor guy.



* I can imagine how cathartic it must have been to the unpopular guys or to people who are stuck with the idea of friend-zone to watch "Ripped Pants". So, Spongebob loses Sandy's attention (someone that it was hinted that he had feelings for, by the way) to Larry, who is a physically fit and nice guy, overall. Many teenagers could identify themselves with Spongebob by the time it was aired. The song by the end was just the nail in the coffin.

* A small example from "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy II." Spongebob abuses the power of the Conch Signal, running Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy ragged with several pointless, petty errands. Eventually, Barnacle Boy snaps at Spongebob ''very'' angrily, chewing him out for being such a pain in the neck. Spongebob's response is to well up with tears, and say, "I'm sorry... I just wanted to spend time with you... You guys are my HEROES!" and break down sobbing. It's one of the few times when his sobbing isn't played up in a hammy, ridiculous way, and Mermaid Man is so moved that he persuades Barnacle Boy to stop giving him a hard time and to let Spongebob go "on patrol" with them for a day.

* In "Imitation Krabs", when a customer questions what the secret formula contains, SpongeBob literally [[OffWithHisHead rips his head off]], revealing a smaller fish underneath who runs away crying. That was a little harsh, wasn't it?



* Patrick crying over breaking his jellyfish net in "Best Day Ever". SpongeBob gives him another one, and he ends up breaking that as well. SpongeBob then lets him use CallBack/Ol' Reliable, but rather begrudgingly.

* "Breath of Fresh Squidward": After catching an overly cheerful Squidward pogo-dancing with Patrick, SpongeBob snaps and yells at Squidward to get out, causing Squidward to leave in tears. Considering how happy Squidward was throughout the episode, that was just wrong!



* The ending of "No Nose Knows". After having his nose destroyed by the ([[spoiler: giant stinkball]]), Patrick laments that he just wanted to smell like his friends and runs away crying. We then cut to a funeral for his nose, with SpongeBob sadly stating that [him and his friends] punished Patrick for just wanting to be like them.

* A brief one at the beginning of the movie: During the montage of people enjoying Krabby Patties, we cut to a man enjoying a patty in a [[BlackComedy hospital bed]] as his wife mourns her loss while eating a Krabby Patty herself. Made worse by the doctor [[AngstWhatAngst cheerfully]] telling her "He'll be gone in a week".
* Plankton [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech blowing up at SpongeBob]], calling him the worst teammate ever. Poor SpongeBob is so horrified that he suffers a HeroicBSOD and starts screaming unintelligibly.

* The climax of "Rock-A-Bye-Bivalve" is pretty sad to watch. After Patrick and SpongeBob get in a heated argument over the former's poor performance as a parent, Junior jumps out of the window, ([[spoiler: learning to fly for the first time]]). SpongeBob and Patrick race over to rescue him, but when they fail to catch him, they break down, crying "WE'RE BAD PARENTS!". It can be especially saddening for parents who feel they aren't doing their job properly.

* Plankton's Regular as a whole. Just to give Plankton one tiny victory and then have Krabs smash it in his face... It's not funny, just sad.

*** Even more heartbreaking if that's [[TragicKeepsake Ol']] [[MementoMacGuffin Reliable]] ([[ItWasAGift Spongebob's favorite jellyfishing net]]) that Patrick's using. The fact that he [[ItsAllJunk breaks it]] after giving up shows how Patrick's given up on getting Spongebob back.
