* Let's face it; a lot of the plots throughout ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' tend to happen because of some stupidity on the part of the characters. And with the rare infuriating episode, [[TropesAreNotBad this is hardly a bad thing]]; after all, [[TropesAreTools how else would we have such funny episodes]]?

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[OverlyLongGag Yet another]]'' basic example, especially in post-movie episodes: Mr. Krabs has shown on occasion to be no better than Plankton, and sometimes can end up even worse by comparison. To hammer the point in further, WordOfGod states that this was at least always the intention to some extent, even from the very beginning. It's especially evident when he outright feeds grease and rotten patties to his customers [[MoneyDearBoy all for more money]], and even resorts to capturing and harnessing jellyfish even pre-movie.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For him to have been put out of business at some point.\\
'''Instead:''' He's still running the Krusty Krab to this day.

* In "[=SpongeGuard=] on Duty", Patrick is drowning in the Goo Lagoon and [=SpongeBob=] being mistaken for a lifeguard is forced to use a boat to get him out of the water.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Patrick to follow [=SpongeBob=]'s directions and get on the boat.\\
'''Instead:''' Thinking he's ''still'' in trouble, Patrick decimates the boat with his bare hands and drags down [=SpongeBob=] into the same situation.



* In "I Had an Accident", Patrick is sandboarding (which is parallel to humans snowboarding) in a dangerous high-risk path that has a warning sign reading "SAND MOUNTAIN".\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Patrick '''NOT''' to play video games while doing so!\\
'''Instead:''' Patrick is too occupied with his video game that he crashes into Sand Mountain and all his four arms and head shatter and fly off after he collides directly into the mountain as his video game depicted.
** Later on, SpongeBob gets into a painful accident from sandboarding just like Patrick since he had his eyes closed while laughing, except his case is so much worse he's forced to have a trip to the hospital.\\

* In "Stuck in the Wringer", [=SpongeBob=] is...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well, yeah]]. Patrick happens to come along and [=SpongeBob=] asks him to help.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Patrick to go to [=SpongeBob's=] aid, turn the crank, and be a good friend to a friend in need.\\
'''Instead:''' Patrick '''[[TooDumbToLive SOMEHOW]]''' thinks it's a good idea to use '''Forever Glue''' on the wringer, thus trapping [=SpongeBob=] forever...at least it would were it not for the [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop unforgivable]] ending.\\
'''Thus:''' [[WhatTheHellTownsPeople Citizens of Bikini Bottom,]] [[StrawmanHasAPoint Strawman Squarepants was completely in the right to do what he did to Patrick.]]



* In "Toy Store of Doom", Spongebob and Patrick successfully defeat a monster that was scaring them--the monster, however, is actually just a harmless, minuscule wind-up toy robot.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Spongebob and Patrick to either destroy the toy or just put it back in the shelf.\\
'''Instead:''' Patrick walks over to the toy, picks it up, and '''''WINDS IT BACK UP''''', thus causing more trauma for the cowardly two.\\
'''FridgeLogic:''' If Patrick is scared of the toy robot, then how come he was able to walk over to the toy and wind it back up ''without freaking out?''
