''Procrastination'' and ''I'm With Stupid'' are episodes from the second season of ''SpongebobSquarepants''.


Spongebob has to write an essay but keeps putting it off.

'''I'm With Stupid'''

Patrick's parents are visiting and he doesn't want them to think that he's an idiot, so he asks Spongebob to act like an idiot to make Patrick seem smart by comparison. Unfortunately, Patrick starts [[BelievingTheirOwnLies believing his own lies.]]

!!''''Procrastination'' provides examples of:
* [[spoiler:AllJustADream]]
* {{Bowdlerized}}: Spongebob's brief little workout, in which he stretches his arms, eyelashes and nose, were rather jarringly cut from syndication after too many people complained that his nose exercises [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything looked phallic]].
* CompressedVice: Before this, Spongebob has never, ''ever'' been shown to put off a task, given how big a {{Workaholic}} he is.
* DeletedScene: Where Spongebob looks out the window, sees his friends at a fairground, and decides to do some exercise for the essay to "get those juices pumpin'".
* RidiculousProcrastinator
* [[spoiler:ShaggyDogStory: [=SpongeBob=] completes the essay, but Mrs Puff ends up having to leave for a teacher's convention and she tells him she decided to cancel the assignment.]]
* TitleDrop: In the German dub, the episode is simply titled "Der Aufsatz" ("The Essay").
* WhatHaveIDone?: "Help! ''Help!'' My house is on fire!"

* KarmaHoudini: Patrick.
* NoodleIncident: "Patrick! You forgot how to eat again! Quick, I'll get the funnel!"

* TookALevelInJerkass / WithFriendsLikeThese: Patrick starts to believe that SpongeBob is really dumb, forgetting that [=SpongeBob=] is only pretending. Patrick then starts making personal insults, and when [=SpongeBob=] tries to remind him that they're only pretending, he denies it.

-->'''Spongebob:''' (''in response to a piece of paper Patrick is holding'') Hey, a note! (''takes it to reveal that there's a music note on it'')\\
'''Patrick:''' Yeah, but turn it over, there's a letter!\\
'''Spongebob:''' (''turns the "note" around to reveal the letter B on the back'') You're right!
