--> -- '''Flatts the Flounder'''

'''Airdate: October 5, 2001'''

A new student named Flatts comes to Mrs. Puff's Boating School. [=SpongeBob=] obviously tries to hit it off, but Flatts insists on kicking [=SpongeBob's=] butt. At first he thinks he's joking, but when he discovers he's serious, [=SpongeBob=] begins to fear for his life.

!!The Bully contains examples of ([[YMMV/SpongeBobSquarePantsS3E3TheBullyJustOneBite YMMV here]]):

* ActingUnnatural: Hiding in a bathroom stall, [=SpongeBob=] hears someone coming and tries to act natural. When the stranger opens the stall, he finds a live-action sponge floating in the toilet.
* AdultsAreUseless: Spongebob asks Mrs. Puff to intervene, but she only makes it worse. Then he runs into Flats's dad and finds out that ''he's'' being bullied as well!
* BlackComedy: This episode would be terrifying if not played so absurdly.
* BlatantLies: Flatts tells Mrs. Puff that he comes from a place where ''kicking someone's butt" is his way of saying "I want to be your friend." Spongebob is not convinced.
* TheBully: [[TitleDrop Well, duh.]]
* CruelTwistEnding: Flats eventually collapses from the exhaustion of trying to beat up Spongebob. Mrs Puff (who did nothing to help Spongebob when Flats was bullying him) then enters, [[NotWhatItLooksLike sees Flatts lying unconscious next to Spongebob, who's fist was in the air during a heroic speech]], and punishes [=SpongeBob=]for beating up Flats.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: [=SpongeBob=] says Flats is a victim of "a society that's going down a violent road to nowhere, a road I call... Violence Road."
* ForTheEvulz: Flatts wants to kick Spongebob's butt. Why? It's just what he does.
* HopeSpot: As Flatts chased [=SpongeBob=] with a garbage boat, the garbage boat slipped on a banana peel [[ItMakesSenseInContext [=SpongeBob=] accidentally dropped]]. As Flatts was recovering at the hospital, it turned out [=SpongeBob=] assisted him during recovery. Flatts was touched. He'll have to remember that when he's kicking his butt.
** And then there's that CruelTwistEnding.
* {{Jerkass}}: Flats out of nowhere.
* KafkaComedy: The first of many times in which the show would derive humor from terrible things happening to characters who don't deserve it.
* KarmaHoudini: Zig-zagged. Flats exhausts himself trying and failing to beat up Spongebob, but he doesn't actually get in trouble. In fact, Spongebob's many attempts to ''get'' him in trouble only serve to make the situation worse.
* MadeOutToBeAJerkass: After Flatts passes out from punching him, [=SpongeBob=] makes a speech denouncing violence, raising his fist for emphasis. Enter Mrs. Puff, who sees Flats passed out on the floor and Spongebob with his fist raised and makes her own conclusion.
* MediumShiftGag: [=SpongeBob=] "acting natural" as a live-action kitchen sponge.
* MisplacedRetribution: The citizens of Bikini Bottom always attack an old man when [=SpongeBob=] freaked out about ''Flatts'' kicking his butt. Granted, they did think [=SpongeBob=] was talking about him.
* NoSell: It turns out Flatts' punches don't harm [=SpongeBob=] at all. He tires himself to exhaustion trying to knock him out for a full day.
* {{Pushover Parent|s}}: Flats' father is not exempt from Flats' bullying.
* RubberMan: [=SpongeBob=] is able to absorb all of Flats' fits due to his spongy structure.
* RunningGag: [=SpongeBob=] trying to tell people about Flats' threats and the crowd assuming he's talking about an old man, whom they proceed to beat up.
* UngratefulBastard: Flats, after [=SpongeBob=] performs CPR on him for three hours, STILL wants to beat him up.
** Not to mention, [=SpongeBob=] ''introduced'' himself to Flatts, only to get the response, "Hi, [=SpongeBob=]. I'm gonna kick your butt."
* VisualPun: "Let's all put on a happy face..."

'''Airdate: October , 2001'''

After realizing that Squidward has never eaten a Krabby Patty, [=SpongeBob=] goes to ridiculous lengths to get him to try one. But when he does and finds to like them, he tries to hide it from [=SpongeBob=], not wanting him to be right.

!!Just One Bite contains examples of ([[YMMV/SpongeBobSquarePantsS3E3TheBullyJustOneBite YMMV here]]):

* AllJustADream: The FallingInLoveMontage with Squidward and a giant Krabby Patty. It was that point Squidward decided to stop at nothing to get his tentacles on a Krabby Patty.
* {{Determinator}}: [=SpongeBob=] ''handcuffs himself to Squidward'' just to get him to eat a Krabby Patty.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything?: Squidward and his need to get a Krabby Patty, no matter what it takes.
* GettingHighOnTheirOwnSupply: [=SpongeBob=] finds out that Squidward has never eaten a Krabby Patty, and spends most of the episode trying to get him to try one. When Squidward finally relents, he claims it's horrible... only to lock himself in the Krabby Patty vault and start devouring them. Once he's out and an ambulance is called to take him to the hospital from [[MadeOfExplodium explosive]] overeating, the driver wistfully says he remembers his first Krabby Patty too.
* GrossUpCloseUp: "Does ''this'' look 'unsure' to you?!"
* GuiltyPleasures: Squidward and Krabby Patties.
* HartmanHips: Squidward, after he indulges in too many Krabby Patties.
* IDoNotLikeGreenEggsAndHam: Squidward's attitude towards Krabby Patties in the beginning.
* SeriesContinuityError: Squidward has never tried a Krabby Patty, despite the fact he was force-fed a bunch of them back in "Your Shoe's Untied".
** Those ones were [[ItMakesSenseInContext launched down his throat]]; he probably didn't taste them.
* TemptingFate: Twice. Squidward asks if he has to eat a Krabby Patty from the garbage, only for a customer to throw one in the trash can. Later, while gorging on Krabby Patties, Squidward sarcastically asks if he's gonna blow up, only for that to happen shortly after.
