Western Animation / The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

Same characters, new look.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water is an animated/live-action hybrid movie based on the popular Nickelodeon TV series SpongeBob SquarePants, and a sequelnote  to 2004's The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, released on February 6th, 2015. It is directed by current showrunner Paul Tibbitt, with screenplay by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger (of Kung Fu Panda fame) based on a story written by Tibbitt and show creator Stephen Hillenburg. The live-action portion of the film is directed by Mike Mitchell of Sky High (2005) fame.

The story is about the Krabby Patty secret recipe being stolen by Burger-Beard the Pirate (Antonio Banderas), causing Bikini Bottom to enter a Mad Max-esque post-apocalyptic wasteland. SpongeBob and friends come ashore and become superheroes in order to defeat Burger-Beard and retrieve the Krabby Patty secret recipe.

It is the first movie of Paramount's new animation division, and the first theatrical animated movie tied to a Nicktoon since 2006's Barnyard, which spawned a spin-off series.

Watch the first trailer here and second trailer here.


  • Audience Surrogate:
    • The seagulls when they question Burger Beard's narration of the movie.
    • Other characters like Squidward and Plankton have minor instances of this. At one point Squidward is shocked that they can just tear off their apocalypse attire and the clothing they always wear is right underneath it. In another scene, Patrick is destroying his own house, when SpongeBob asks him what he's doing, he says "Vandalizing stuff." Plankton then asks "Isn't that your house?"
  • Avoid the Dreaded G Rating: Some "mild rude humor" such as a scene with a woman in a bikini laying on the beach, SpongeBob accidentally mooning Patrick, a censored curse word, and some trippy, drug-induced sequences (including a direct 2001 reference) seem to have been added for the PG rating.
  • Big Damn Movie: Bikini Bottom is turned into a hellish apunkalypse, the Big Bad is able to rewrite reality at his will, and the entire thing is generally played more seriously than a regular episode (though it's a lot more lighthearted than the first movie).
  • Big Damn Heroes: Plankton/Plank-Ton comes in to save the other heroes, stops Burger-Beard by lifting his ship, and then powers up Spongebob/Invicibubble's bubbles to create a bubble wave that defeats Burger-Beard.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": Squidward does this when he comes in to complain to Mr. Krabs:
    Squidward: MR. KRABS! Spongebob, zip it!
    (Spongebob promptly stops laughing)
    Plankton: (exhausted) Thank you, Squidward...
  • Black Comedy:
    • At one point Plankton and SpongeBob sneak back into Bikini Bottom to rescue Plankton's computer wife Karen, who was being tortured by the denizens of the town because they thought she had the Krabby Patty secret formula. Plankton and SpongeBob need Karen to operate the time machine they had built, and remove her monitor from her robotic body. SpongeBob acts like he's Squicked out about it, saying "I've never carried a head before". Plankton responds "Don't worry, you'll get used to it," implying he's cut off and carried actual heads around before. Since Karen is a computer, this doesn't harm her, but she does state that powering the time machine is going to take up all her processing power.
    • The scene with a fish in hospital eating a patty. Dr. Gilliam declares that he'll be gone in a week, and his wife mourns the imminent loss while eating a patty herself.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: When the background characters refuse to go the surface.
    Random Fish: All secondary characters come with me.
  • Bridal Carry: A gender-flipped version in the scene when the gang are on dry land and are crossing the road trying to avoid the bicyclists and skaters and Sandy carries Squidward in her arms to safety.
  • Bubble Gun: Spongebob/Invincibubble shoots, well, bubbles.
  • Bullet Seed: Sandy (in her superhero mode) spits peanuts out at Burger Beard.
  • Call Back: SpongeBob teaching Plankton the concept of teamwork, with Plankton being unable to even pronounce the word is certain to remind some viewers of Sponge Bob Squarepants episodes like "F.U.N" and "Single Cell Anniversary" where SpongeBob had trouble teaching Plankton the concepts of fun, friendship, and love.
  • Call Forward: After seeing the chaos Bikini Bottom is in after Krabby Patties are gone, Plankton gloats that he could rule the world with the formula. He does that in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.
  • The Cameo:
    • Supporting characters Mrs. Puff, Larry the Lobster, and Pearl make very brief appearances (Larry appearing at the Krusty Krab shot at the end, with Pearl appearing only during the end credits). One shot characters like Bubble Bass and Flats the Flounder (who hasn't made an appearance since "The Bully") also show up at one point.
    • EpicLloyd and NicePeter from Epic Rap Battles of History show up as live-action surfers.
  • Captain Colorbeard: Burgerbeard the pirate.
  • Cassandra Truth: Nobody believes SpongeBob's claims that Plankton didn't steal the formula. Fortunately, the scent of the currently-being-cooked-by-Burger Beard patties vindicates SpongeBob's claim.
  • Character Development: Plankton, who becomes sort of an anti-hero, due to working with SpongeBob throughout a majority of the movie.
  • Chekhov's Gun: One of the seagulls rips off a page of the magic book and drops it into the ocean...which ends up on top of Sandy's treedome. Later, when the gang are stranded on an island by Burger-Beard, SpongeBob uses the page to transform the gang into superheroes.
  • Close Enough Timeline: Intentionally invoked in the end, when Spongebob returns Bikini Bottom to normal (with the exception of Squidward rocking the Heroic Build under his shirt).
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Parodied. After the Secret Formula has literally vanished and Mr. Krabs doesn't believe Plankton about it, he tapes him to his desk and tells a knock-knock joke. ("Jimmy." "Jimmy who?" "Jimmy BACK MY FORMULA, PLANKTON!") SpongeBob's ensuing laughter after he gets the joke (with Krabs wearing ear protectors) is what gets Plankton screaming.
    [cut to silence with Krabs smiling smugly with his ear protectors on]
  • Completely Different Title: The German dub of the film is simply titled SpongeBob Schwammkopf 3D (SpongeBob Squarepants 3D).
  • Cool Loser: In spite of the fact that he's an outcast that was clearly Born in the Wrong Century, Burger-Beard owns an awesome-looking pirate ship, which is pimped-out with wheels and a ton of cannons on it.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • During the "Thank Gosh It's Monday" music video created for the Day of Positivity, the spatula that SpongeBob used in the show's pilot episode can be seen, and the seaweed mustaches from first movie can be seen in a framed picture on the wall (though that is a little odd, considering that the first movie takes place at the end of the show's timeline, while this film is said to be a prequel to the first one, although the scene does not appear in the movie, solidifying its prequel status).
    • During the credits, Squidward does the dance from his act in "Culture Shock".
    • During the part where Plankton attacks the Krusty Krab with a pickle-firing tank causing Patrick to slam into a wall, he mutters "Finland...", which he similarly yelled in "Frankendoodle" when hit with a bowling ball.
    • Similarly, when Sandy orders from the Krusty Krab, she mentions "Hold the mayo," a reference to "Planet of the Jellyfish" where she mentions her dislike of mayo.
    • One of Spongebob's ways of stopping Plankton is with the reefblower from season 1.
    • Several one shot characters, like Flats the Flounder, appear in the background at various times.
    • Mr. Krabs' superhero form resembles the robot Krabs Plankton built in "Imitation Krabs".
    • During the rap battle between Bubbles and the seagulls, one of the seagulls uses a curse word, which is censored with a dolphin noise sound effect in a similar fashion to "Sailor Mouth".
    • The Krusty Krab's drive-thru system seems to have improved from the hole in the wall and tin can phone they had in the Season 8 episode "Drive Thru".
    • Plankton having trouble comprehending the idea of "teamwork" is similar to his difficulty understanding fun in "F.U.N."
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Mr. Krabs tortures Plankton by... getting Spongebob to laugh at a knock-knock joke. Hard.
  • Creative Closing Credits: The credits depict stylized versions of the characters in a conga line, with various tiki heads appearing in the background.
  • Creator Cameo:
    • Series Creator Stephen Hillenburg has a vocal cameo in the film as the voice of a live-action baby who says, "SpongeBob!"
    • Showrunner Paul Tibbitt voices Kyle the seagull.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Played with with Burger Beard. The first thing he does once he gets the magical book is steal the Krabby Patty recipe so he can make money off of it rather than just make himself rich. Possibly justified by the fact that it is implied that the book is limited to influencing what has already been written in it, meaning Burger Beard can't do anything directly for himself with it.
  • Darker and Edgier: While it's not as dark as the first movie, this movie still has its moments compared to the show. A major example being that the Bikini Bottom Apocalypse is actually played rather seriously, especially in the sacrifice scene.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: When Plankton is trying to tell Mr. Krabs that the formula literally disappeared, Mr. Krabs answers with: "Why should I believe YOU, you lying liar?!"
  • Deuteragonist: Behind Spongebob, Plankton's role in the film greatly outweighs that of the other characters, and he even winds up becoming the Big Damn Hero in the end, no strings attached!
  • Diabolus ex Machina: Because Burgerbeard is able to rewrite reality to his will, he obtains the secret formula, empties the Patty Vault, and turns Bikini Bottom into a dystopia. He later strands the heroes on Pelican Island with the same method.
  • Dreamworks Face: The posters for the film have SpongeBob doing it as the Invincibubble.
  • invoked Dude, Not Funny!: Plankton remarks, after he and SpongeBob were exiled from Bikini Bottom, that they could rename Bikini Bottom to "Dirty Bottom". SpongeBob's reaction is "...that's kind of gross, Plankton."
  • Easily Forgiven: SpongeBob seems to take the whole town turning against him, his best friend ratting him out, and everybody trying to sacrifice him pretty well by the end of the film.
  • Edible Ammunition:
    • Burger-Beard uses a blunderbuss loaded with butter.
    • At the beginning, Plankton and the Krusty Krab battle each other with, among other things, a potato-firing machine gun and a pickle-launching tank.
    • Sandy in her superhero form shoves nuts in her mouth and spits them out like bullets.
    • Parodied with Patrick/Mr. Superawesomeness and his ice cream powers. At first he uses them as a wave attack against Burger-Beard, and Spongebob/Invincibubble says that he should never have doubted Patrick's power, only for it to backfire and all the ice cream to hit Patrick.
  • Eleventh Hour Superpower: The protagonists gain their superhero alter-egos in the last 20 minutes of the film. For a 13th hour example, when Spongebob uses the book to press the Reset Button, he adds a slight caveat that gives Squidward the Heroic Build.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Squidasaurus is appalled that the Bikini Bottomites try to sacrifice Spongebob.
    Squidasaurus: And I thought my friends were primitive.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Not only does Plankton struggle to understand the concept of teamwork, he can't even pronounce it properly ("Te-am work? Tie-am? Time bomb... work?"). He also believes that SpongeBob helping him is really a front for a plot to steal the formula for himself, and is shocked to learn he really doesn't know it.
  • Exit, Pursued by a Bear: No, he doesn't die, but Plankton exits the film pursued by a snail.
  • Freak Out: SpongeBob briefly loses it when Plankton tells him that it's his fault that they fail to get the secret formula back and throws insult after insult at him. This, coupled with the dystopia surrounding him, causes him to start screaming, kicking a trash can, collapsing to the floor, and start mixing garbage with recycling. He snaps out of it, and realises that he's just become a savage like everybody else.
  • Funny Background Event:
    • Squidasaurus Rex struggling to eat a Krabby Patty.
    • A small fish chasing two muscular fish with a pitchfork during the news report.
  • Future Me Scares Me: After SpongeBob and Plankton travel back in time to the point when Plankton is about to steal the secret formula, Past SpongeBob is horrified when he sees himself aiding Plankton in stealing the formula; he doesn't know that he is actually taking it to save Bikini Bottom.
  • Gainax Ending: After the plot has concluded, the talking seagulls begin to reprise their version of the SpongeBob theme, in a stylistic Flash animation. However, Bubbles reappears and expresses his disdain for the song, which inexplicably leads into a rap battle between them.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar:
    • As the Invincibubble, SpongeBob tells everyone to get ready for a "total aft-kicking".
    • Squidward sliding and flailing on the lower back of the sunbathing woman is a little...suggestive.
    • The scene with the ice cream girl is suggestive to say the least. However, it appeared only in the trailers and TV spots.
    • During the Rap Battle, one of the seagulls swears, which is censored by a bar and dolphin noise.
    • Plankton's code name for Karen earlier in the film is "laptop", to which she considers demeaning.
  • Gilligan Cut: This little gem:
    Mr. Krabs: (acting like crazy) The Krabby Patty is what ties us all together! Without it, there will be a complete breakdown of social order! A war of all against all! Dark times are ahead! Dark times indeed!
    Squidward: Seriously? Aren't you overreacting a bit?
    (cut to Bikini Bottom in flaming ruins and everyone dressed in punk attire.)
  • Gratuitous Rap: The rap battle between Bubbles and the Seagulls, done by the guys behind Epic Rap Battles of History.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Bubbles goes from trying to kill Spongebob and Plankton to helping them stop Burger-Beard.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door:
    • Plankton goes from being a villain to hero and back to villain.
    • Patrick goes from hero, uh, own house vandal to willing teammate to angry mob supporter and back to hero.
  • Heroic Sacrifice:
    • SpongeBob offers himself for sacrifice to the Sandwich Gods.
    • Karen uses up all her processing power to help Spongebob and Plankton go back in time to set things right.
  • I Choose to Stay: Parodied at the end. After the villain is defeated, Squidward wants to stay on land in his Sour Note form, because, in his words, "I am a god!" However, Spongebob writes on the magical page for everything to be back to the way it was at the start of the film. With the modification of giving Squidward "rock-hard abs".
  • "I Know What We Can Do" Cut: SpongeBob and the gang have a little trouble walking on a sidewalk because of people roller-skating and riding bikes.
    SpongeBob: Now what?!
    Squidward: We're never gonna make it!
    (SpongeBob notices a bike. Cut to the gang riding it.)
  • Left the Background Music On: Spongebob and Plankton are sneaking into the Chum Bucket to get Karen, and have to get the key to Karen's cell. Plankton starts tiptoeing and we think it’s a regular cartoony tiptoeing sounds. But then he stops and we see that it's just Spongebob standing there playing a tiny piano.
    Plankton: Would you stop playing that tiny piano?
    SpongeBob: (hides piano behind his back) Sorry.
  • Level Ate: The film has Plankton entering SpongeBob's brain, a Sugar Bowl that contains stuff like lollipop trees and living ice cream cones spraying chocolate syrup on each other.
  • Lighter and Softer: The film is still somewhat dark, due to Bikini Bottom becoming an apunkalypse for a good chunk of the film, but otherwise it's not as serious as The Sponge Bob Square Pants Movie's surprisingly disturbing dystopia.
  • Literal-Minded: Spongebob says hypothetically that the only way that he and Plankton could possibly fix the scrape they've gotten themselves into is go back in time and stopped the events that happened in the first place. Plankton tells him to "hold that thought". He proceeds to grab the thought bubble over his head and hold it like a balloon.
  • Loud of War: Sour Note's clarinet creates powerful sonic waves from its bad playing. It manages to keep the book away from Burger-Beard in a Last Ditch Move.
  • Meaningful Echo: When Plankton is fighting with SpongeBob over the formula bottle, we hear this:
    Plankton: Come on, SpongeBob! Join me! And we'll be rich and powerful! Until I eventually betray you... Uhh... JOIN ME!
    SpongeBob: No! Never! I'm on Team Krabs for life!
    • And later at the climax, when he is a superhero and prepares to take the formula from Burger-Beard:
    Burger-Beard: Come on, team up with me! We'll be rich and powerful! Huh?
    Plankton: No, thanks. I'm already part of a teamwork.
  • Medium Blending:
    • When the characters come to the surface, they turn from 2D to CGI, with live-action for everything else.
    • When SpongeBob and Plankton meet Bubbles the dolphin, they remain 2D while Bubbles is animated via stop-motion.
  • The Movie: Like The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie before it, it's a movie tied to SpongeBob SquarePants.
  • Musicalis Interruptus: In the beginning of the movie, the talking seagulls begin singing the Theme Song, but Burger-Beard stops them and threatens to burn them, showing the same thing happened to his parrots. It happens again before the credits. Bubbles interrupts the theme song and expresses his hatred of it and, apropos of nothing, goes into a rap battle with one of the seagulls.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • In The Sponge Bob Square Pants Movie, a deleted scene (storyboarded but not animated) revealed that Sandy was planned to make a cameo appearance on the surface world as a real squirrel. Come this film, and Sandy dons the appearance of a real squirrel in her superhero form.
    • Burgerbeard's food cart is called the Barnacle Burger, which was an early name for the Krabby Patty.
    • Squidward inking himself when he's nervous was originally going to be a regular gag on the show, but they could never find a way to do it properly until now.
  • Naked People Are Funny: It is pointed out that Plankton is naked when Past SpongeBob asks why he's naked. Plankton explains that he goes nude because they don't make clothes his size.
  • Never Trust a Trailer:
    • All the ads play up the CGI scenes...which take up about 20 minutes of the movie. The majority of the animation in film is actually hand-drawn, with plenty of Art Shifts. The trailer also promised a cameo by Slash as a street musician, which ended up being cut from the film.
    • The trailer makes it look as if Burger Beard is the one who attacks the Krusty Krab. In the actual film, it's Plankton.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: When SpongeBob and Plankton watch the cosmos for Bubbles, Jupiter ends up crashing into Saturn. This causes Bubbles to get fired and become aggressive toward the duo. However, it's subverted later, when Bubbles reveals that he hated his job; he rewards the heroes by granting them the ability to breathe above water.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: All of the CGI models of the characters in their superhero forms look like their cartoon counterparts...except for Sandy Cheeks, who looks like an actual squirrel.
  • No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: Apparently, Mr. Krabs made a rule that only one copy of the Krabby Patty formula could exist and that no one was allowed to memorize it. The cause of the plot comes when that one copy disappears right when more patties need to be made.
  • Not Me This Time: Plankton is in the midst of stealing the Krabby Patty formula when it suddenly disappears in his hands. When Mr. Krabs arrives and sees the formula gone, he naturally assumes Plankton did it and has him arrested. Only SpongeBob, the only other witness to the disappearance, believes Plankton's innocence, and breaks him out so they can work together to get it back.
  • Not Now, Kiddo: SpongeBob tries to tell Mr. Krabs and others that Plankton didn't steal the formula this time, but they don't even bother listening to him.
  • Ow, My Body Part!:
    • After a lengthy absence from the series, the "MY LEG!" Running Gag makes a triumphant return here.
    • Squidward follows suit later: "Ow, my neck!"
  • Parental Bonus: In addition to Getting Crap Past the Radar, there was also a reference to The Shining when Plankton entered Spongebob's mind and met two popsicles.
  • Pass the Popcorn: As SpongeBob and his friends chase Burger Beard down the street, the seagulls watch them go while eating popcorn. While this happens, one seagull yells to Burger Beard, "That's what you get!"
  • A Pirate 400 Years Too Late: Burger-Beard from clearly doesn't belong in the movie's modern United States coast town setting. In fact, his pirate ship has wheels on it and doubles as a food truck.
  • Recycled Title: This movie is a follow up to The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, though all the publicity seems happy to refer to it only as "The SpongeBob Movie" and treat it like it is unprecedented.
  • Repeating Ad:
    • Dear god were the ads for this movie everywhere! Stations owned by Viacom aired commercials for the film at least once a break on their shows (except for SpongeBob related ones, since that would be an FCC violation.) It also played on Nick Jr. to the point where parents complained about the advertising of a show aimed at kids older than the target age of the channel.
    • The ad also played on CBS at least once every commercial break. (For the record, CBS is not owned by Viacom, but the two share the same parent company.) It doesn't help matters that, in a manner similar to the episode "Sailor Mouth", the ad shown on the channel had dolphin noises placed at inappropriate times throughout the ad.
    • Ads also played on YouTube, usually on videos of children's shows or games, as well as during the DVD release of the film.
    • A different ad, which began with "What do you want from little old me?", played on radio stations like WPLJ every other break.
    • The ad problem was so immense that people who hated SpongeBob were advised to not watch television, listen to the radio or YouTube until Cinderella came out in mid-March, or for the DVD release, until Inside Out came out.
  • Reverse Telescopic Vision: Patrick is holding his binoculars backwards during a WWII-inspired scene.
    Patrick: I think we have a few minutes before he gets here.
    (SpongeBob flips the binoculars around)
  • Rewriting Reality: The conflict of the movie revolves around a magic journal that can rewrite reality falling into the hands of the evil pirate Burger-Beard. And it just so happens that the Krabby Patty Secret Formula is written on one of the missing pages to the journal...
  • Rodents of Unusual Size: Sandy Cheeks is a rare heroic example. Usually she's an anthropomorphic squirrel no bigger than someone's hand, but in her superhero form "The Rodent", she, as well as being very realistic looking, is about twice the size of a human.
  • Roger Rabbit Effect: As with the last movie, there are live-action/animated sequences. However this time, the animation is done with CGI instead of traditional hand-drawn animation whenever real people show up.
  • Sand in My Eyes: SpongeBob notices Plankton tearing up after having to shut down Karen to build the time machine.
    SpongeBob: Plankton, are you crying?
    Plankton: No, no, no, that's the price of having a giant eyeball. Stuff always gets in there.
  • Sanity Slippage: Everyone in Bikini Bottom loses it after the formula is stolen, becoming savage and selfish. Sandy is a more noticeable example, as her treedome is converted into a Room Full of Crazy, and she keeps prophesying about "The End".
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: Or rather, Super Not-Asphyxiating Skills. The gang seems to function perfectly fine above water in spite of not being able to breathe air (though this does make sense for Sandy and Mr. Krabs - note that the former doesn't seem to be wearing her helmet). It turns out that Bubbles the dolphin granted them these skills as a reward for causing him to lose his job (he never liked his job as the protector of the universe, but he never had the courage to quit, either).
  • Tagline: "He's leaving his world behind."
  • Take That!: The characters' disturbed reaction to Sandy when she becomes a realistic-looking squirrel might be a shot at how live-action movies unintentionally make beloved cartoon characters look creepy when they're rendered in elaborate cgi.
  • Tempting Fate: SpongeBob and the gang don't know how to go to the surface.
    Squidward: The only way we're going out there is if some Fairy Godmother shows up and helps us breathe air!
    (Bubbles the dolphin suddenly appears)
  • Theme Tune Cameo: Three instances:
    • When the camera reveals the island which marks Bikini Bottom, we hear the last eight notes of the theme.
    • The seagulls begin singing the song, but Burger-Beard stops them.
    • The full audio from the TV version of the theme is heard at the end.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Squidward wants to stay on land in his Sour Note form, but Spongebob wants to bring the whole gang back home. He's dismayed to be just an ordinary cashier again, but Spongebob, via page from magical book, made him keep his "rock-hard abs".
  • Tiny-Headed Behemoth: Plankton's superhero form takes this trope to its zenith - he's seriously built, but you can barely see his head in some shots.
  • Too Soon: In-Universe. When SpongeBob and Plankton are overlooking the ruined Bikini Bottom, Plankton jokes that it should be renamed "Dirty Bottom". SpongeBob reacts in disgust and Plankton quickly agrees that it's too soon.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Plankton, being a superhero, is fighting alongside the protagonists in the climax. After they beat Burgerbeard, he has the chance to take the formula for himself. He does consider it, but ultimately gives it back to Krabs. Granted once Spongebob returns the group home, he back to his usual villainy but by this point, it's just routine.
  • Took a Level in Badass: SpongeBob and his friends come out of the sea and fight against Burger-Beard by becoming superheroes.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: The whole town after they run out of Krabby Patties. They don't hesitate to kill SpongeBob after he offers himself as a sacrifice to the "Sandwich Gods".
  • Trailers Always Spoil: One of the trailers clearly shows Plankton as Plank-Ton. Even worse, the DVD cover shows it too.
  • Weaponized Music: Sour Note is a weaker version of this: the loud, shrill sound waves from his clarinet are able to send people running, but Burger Beard holds the fort.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's never explained what happened to Karen after the time machine was destroyed, although it's safe to say that Plankton rebuilt her after the events of the movie.
  • What Have I Become?:
    • SpongeBob when he has his breakdown after failing to save the Krabby Patty formula after going back in time and realizing he has descended into savagery like the others.
    • At one point, Past Spongebob says this word-for-word when he sees Future Spongebob and Future Plankton becoming a team and stealing the formula from Past Plankton.
