- In the Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat scene, SpongeBob and Patrick become drunk off of ice cream. These instances shown are:
- SpongeBob keeps shouting "WAITER!" in suggestive ways.
- He drags Patrick and the Goofy Goober peanut on stage and sings a song called "WAITER!" while stumbling around on stage, with very slurred speech.
- Later, a very hung-over SpongeBob appears with a five o'clock shadow and finds an unconscious Patrick: "Patrick! HEYWHASSUPBUDDY-?!" *face-plants the floor*
- When he arrives at the Krusty Krab, he is very wobbly, still has slurred speech, belches as if ready to throw up, and mistakes King Neptune as a woman. He is clearly having a hangover (or, an "ice cream headache", as Wikipedia calls it...).
- Then there's the Thug Tug, where we see some drunk-looking patrons and bottles and mugs littered everywhere. This time, though, there isn't anything confirming that it's not alcohol.
- When Plankton is looking at "Plan Z," he's becomes excited and sweaty, mumbling "Oh yeah!" in a very suggestive manner, and you can hear a saxophone in the background. The plans also fold out, ala Playboy.
- At one point, SpongeBob says "I'm late for work! Mr. Krabs is gonna be p—", then cuts himself off.
- "Goofy Goober Rock" gets away with "no frickin' way". This is cut in the extended mix on the official OST.
- As Mr. Krabs whispers to SpongeBob that Squidward got the manager job, he is clearly heard whispering "jackass". Three times. SpongeBob even replies, "I'm making a complete what of myself?" after the first time. In recent airings on Nickelodeon, the line is subtly backmasked.
- King Neptune calls a letter that reads "I stole your crown," a "damning piece of evidence" to convict Mr. Krabs. Even in that context, this curse wouldn't be used on the show.
- One old lady in a crowd calls SpongeBob "a knucklehead mc-spazz-itron." While it may not sound bad to American audiences, British audiences may be surprised to find that a word used to insult physically disabled people in British slang has made it into a kids' movie.
- In Dennis' last scene, when he is about to kill SpongeBob and Patrick, he informs them that he will "see [them] later", which may or may not have been a subtle way of him saying that he will see them in Hell.
- While justified in the context, it can definitely raise your eyebrows to hear Plankton, sweating and trembling with excitement, yell out with audible joy, "Daddy, YES!"
