Sandy's Rocket: Sandy shows Spongebob her rocket, who wants to go to the moon with her, but she refuses. Patrick and Spongebob go to the rocket while Sandy is sleeping and break in. There, the two accidentally launch into space and around the moon. When returning, they think they are on the moon, and start to kidnap the residents of Bikini Bottom!

Sandy's Rocket provides examples of:

  • Abnormal Ammo: Sandy's collecting guns, which shoot nets to capture samples. SpongeBob and Patrick use it to trap "aliens".
  • Accidental Murder: Implied to be the case with the "whirlybird" incident.
  • Black Comedy: SpongeBob apparently has killed a lot of people during the "mishap with [sandy's] whirlybird", judging on the size of the graveyard she shows him.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Patrick, when he believes he's an alien.
  • The Ditz: Patrick. He holds the gun backwards, causing him to trap himself instead of Spongebob.
  • Eldritch Abomination: What SpongeBob and Patrick see everyone in Bikini Bottom after they crashland the ship.
  • Mistaken for Aliens: SpongeBob and Patrick think their friends are aliens and start capturing them. In the end, each thinks the other is an alien as well.
  • Platonic Cave: SpongeBob thinks this is why the moon looks just like Bikini Bottom. "The aliens must be projecting our thoughts into the environment."
  • They Look Like Us Now: What SpongeBob and Patrick assume when they see all their friends on what they think is the moon.
  • Shout-Out: Spongebob saying "Hey, you got toothpaste in my peanut butter" is a reference to the original Reese's Peanut Butter Cups commercial.
  • Wrong Turn at Albuquerque: The rocket actually missed the moon and landed back on Bikini Bottom, but SpongeBob and Patrick don't know that.
