Recap: Spongebob Squarepants S 1 E 16 Valentines Day The Paper
Valentine's Day

Spongebob and Sandy have prepared a special Valentine's Day present for Patrick. But there's a bit of a delay in getting it to arrive. Will Spongebob be able to hold out on an increasingly impatient best friend?

'Valentine's Day contains examples of:

  • Ax-Crazy: Patrick eventually becomes this until SpongeBob he sees the chocolate air balloon.
  • Balloon-Bursting Bird: Scallops (who are the equivalent of birds in Bikini Bottom) try to eat the chocolate balloon as Sandy gets it to the fair.
  • Fluffy Tamer: Sandy harnesses the scallops to get the balloon back on course.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Patrick gets mad after not getting his gift and thrashes the carnival.
    Heart on stick... MUST DIE!
  • Unstoppable Rage: Subverted in that the first Heart-On-Stick is a huge steel tower which Patrick fails to destroy. He then sees a little girl with a heart-shaped lollipop, and breaks that.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Horrific?: While Patrick's rampage is frightening, it only takes an announcement that "there's a chubby, pink starfish on the loose" to get the people in a panic.

The Paper

Squidward carelessly throws a piece of chewing gum paper onto Spongebob's lawn and insists he keep it. But he begins to get jealous once he finds out what Spongebob is able to do with it.

The Paper contains examples of:

  • No Matter How Much I Beg: Trope Namer. Tired of SpongeBob trying to return the paper, he tells him that "no matter how much I beg, and plead, and cry, don't give that paper to me back, ever!." Naturally, when Squidward wants the paper, SpongeBob holds him to his word.
