Airdate: October 5, 2001The episode begins with another day in Boating School for SpongeBob, when Mrs. Puff introduces a new student, Flats. SpongeBob takes the time to greet the new student, only to be told that Flats is gonna kick his butt. In the bathroom, SpongeBob tries to tell a story to Flats to try to get on his good side. This fails miserably and now Flats is gonna kick his butt twice as hard. SpongeBob then proceeds to write his final will and testament, but then he gets a phone call from Patrick. SpongeBob begs Patrick to protect him from the bully, but it turns out that Patrick and Flats were community college buddies. With nowhere else to turn, SpongeBob then turns to Mrs. Puff to resolve this. This also fails miserably as Mrs. Puff now interprets that Flats just wants to be his friend. Now frightened, SpongeBob flees all over Bikini Bottom from Flats. Flats soon corners SpongeBob in his own pineapple. Now completely helpless, SpongeBob prepares for the worst and braces for impact. However, as it turns out, Flats' blows have no effect on SpongeBob, as he is, well, a sponge. Flats continues to whale on him, but to no avail, until he finally passes out from exhaustion at school two days later. As Mrs. Puff walks into the classroom, she misunderstands the situation as SpongeBob defeating Flats. She then says she's gonna kick his butt.

Airdate: October , 2001The episode begins with another working day at the Krusty Krab, when Squidward announces that he hates Krabby Patties. SpongeBob, upon hearing this, goes out of his way to make Squidward eat one, since he never ate one before that statement. After much persuading, Squidward takes a bite of a Krabby Patty. At first glance, it seems like Squidward hated the Patty, but when SpongeBob leaves the scene, it is revealed that Squidward loves the Krabby Patty. Squidward then tries to get another Krabby Patty through various means (ordering one under the order of another customer, eating one out of the garbage), but to no avail. Eventually, Squidward can't take it anymore, and rushes to sneak into the Krusty Krab to get into the Patty Vault. Unfortunately for him, SpongeBob shows up as well, since he always comes to the restaurant early to count the sesame seeds. Being trapped into a corner, Squidward finally admits he loves Krabby Patties, locks himself in the Patty Vault and proceeds to gorge on the burgers. SpongeBob tries to warn him not to eat too many of them, or else he'll blow up. However, that warning comes in too late, and Squidward blows up from eating too many Krabby Patties, hospitalizing him.
